Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kathie27 Great Breakfast wait staff
My youngest daughter & I stayed here while visiting my other daughter stationed at Camp Pendleton. What a great place to stay! We were able to walk to the beach every day & swim in the pool or relax in the hot tub in the evening.
I do want to specifically point out the wonderful waiter we had most mornings we stayed. His name, I believe, was Andrew, & he was by far the friendliest & most helpful staff member we encountered. Every day we were there, he would always greet us with a smile & a welcoming presence. We would look forward to starting our day with wonderful food & great service. He definitely goes above & beyond getting to know his customers as repeat visitors! For a young man just starting out, I am sure he has a great future as his personality is so humble & compassionate he is sure to make an impact in whatever field he ends up in.
I did not have the same 'feel good' experience with the front desk staff. I immediately bristled at the attitude of the woman who checked us in, but other than that, the other staff members were doing their job without going out of their way to make eye contact, ask if we needed anything, or some days we wouldn't even get a hello..even tho we stayed for 8 nights.
It is a beautiful hotel however, with many amenities, & of all places in Oceanside, this is by far the most superior of all that I saw during our stay. We would certainly stay there again if my daughter remains stationed at Camp Pendleton after her deployment.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by less1 Passable but not a great getaway experience
This hotel is located somewhat convenient to the town and beaches. It seems to be designed for people on business trips who don't care much about their room, but as non-business travelers my wife and I found it not to be very welcoming.
The server at breakfast was really nice, but he was the only one working all tables, so breakfast was a highly disorganized and protracted affair. We did not consider this to be the server's fault but rather the management's. In any event it did not start our morning off very well.
Overall, this hotel is somewhere I might recommend but only with many cautions. I would expect that there are much nicer places to stay in the same area.

Freindly and accomodating staff. Good value and allowed late checkout to allow additional time to relax prior to returning military members to base. Would definately stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RaDragon Fantastic room and clean establishment
Room and entire hotel was spotless. The front desk staff were extremely adept and courteous. The restaurant staff can use a bit more work, as far as timely and attentive service, albeit the food was delicious. My annual visit to this hotel is always great and I will keep returning as I have not been disappointed yet!

This has been one of the cleanest Holiday Inns I have stayed at. The staff was extremely helpful and recognized me as a Priority Club Member when I checked in. It is minutes from the beach as well as major highways. I highly recommend this location to anyone staying in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by drop2 Great place
We stayed here for 8 days, coming here to see our son graduate from Field Medic Training at Camp Pendleton and visit the area. The staff was always very helpful and courteous. We had a room with 2 queen beds that was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff allowed our son to stay with us for two nights before he had to report back. He enjoyed the chance to sleep there and use the WiFi to connect with his friends. He just wanted a chance to rest and hardly wanted to leave. In saying that the food was average, I will say that it was much better than some of the places that we ate during our visit. The convenience playing a big part when we were tired and the staff made it more enjoyable. Thank you so much for a memorable visit to the area. We will most probably be back while our son is in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wilks22 Loved it...... One issue though
I really enjoyed my stay here. Geoffrey and staff go out of their way to provide excellent service. My issue was the 'dining room'. I think that i'd enjoy a nice breakfast in the DR, but they offer a 'buffet' that is essentially the low-grade breakfast food from Holiday Inn Express, but one pays for it. We opted to order off the menu. The food took a VERY long time to be served, and was below average. The TV at the table was a saving grace. To compare, we ate at Harbor Cafe two mornings in a row, and had a fantastic breakfast both times.
One very strange thing was the ineptitude of the bar/lounge staff to use the cash register/micros system. Puzzling. It took a young lady literally 3-4 minutes to ring up one small transaction. No joke.

I returned back as a customer and took friends from Korea. They had a wonderful place! I was with family and had the King Suite and enjoyed it very much.
Loved having the small little restaurant downstairs!!
Loved the fruit at the check in counter! We ate several oranges!!
Thanks and a wonderful shout out for Ariel, Joanna and Angelica!!
I had to help my friends pack a box to take to Korea and the staff even helped me find an old box to use!! Now that's above and beyond!!

I want to thank Angelica and her staff at Oceanside for their great customer service. I had never used the Holiday Inn brand for hotel stays. I was scouting for a hotel that was in a great location and would be affordable to have company come when they come from out of town to visit. I went to the staff here at Oceanside and asked some questions about the hotel and rooms and they took time out of their schedule to show the room and tell me about their property. I then went around and looked at several other properties and then returned to them for the night and spent the night. I informed them that due to their great customer service, that I had returned to them to rent that night ( i hadn't even planned on that) and that i would be back with friends at another time!! It is very understandable as to how they earned their customer service award!
Thanks Angelica and team!!

Our three nights here were a great start to a driving vacation of Southern California. Comfortable quiet rooms. We appreciated the larger fridge in the room for snacks and drinks. Within easy walking distance of the beach.

We spent a few days there on our family vacation. We loved every minute of it. On the last day we were there, one of our children came down with stomach flu...they hotel staff went out of their way to help us...most importantly allowing us to stay way past the check out time so that our daughter would not have to travel until we were ready to head to the airport. Thanks! We definitely hope to stay there again soon!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Napoleon Handicap room
this has now become a problem because, the last three times i have stayed there I have been put in a Handicap room. Not sure if this is in my profile, but I don't like it. Whenever they want to upgrade you, they are happy to announce that they are upgrading you, but why can't they tell you at the counter that what is available is a Handicap room, you don't find that out until you get to your room. The main reason I have a problem with this is my spouse is Disabled and if these rooms are given to people without disabilities where do the disabled stay? I am a club member, guess that is not something to consider.

I usually do not fill these out. However, this is the friendliest, most courteous, honest hotel I have stayed at for a long time. The staff is excellent. The facility is excellent. It was all good! The room was fresh and clean. I left a couple items in the room and called to check if they had found them. They were already startring to box them up to send to my house. Everything accounted for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Superfeminist29 Good food, great stuff, quiet, peaceful and beautiful
We had the loveliest vacation EVER for three days and it was just perfect. Even the hotel restaurant had excellent fish dishes (just as good as in the harbour) and great, huge (I guess everything in the US is big) breakfast options. Wonderful, dedicated, staff! They were so nice and sweet. We thought we´d miss our Pacific Surfliner to San Diego but they told us about Coaster, which was much cheaper - and just as good.
The room was clean and nice. Nothing to complain. Nothing at all! Keep up the good work! I wish I could come again.
