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!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sheandwe Great Customer Service
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.

I travel frequently to many parts of the country. The Staff there always greets me by name and is very friendly.
I stay there every time I'm Oceanside CA and recommend it to my friends and coworkers.
Great place to stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Niblock outstanding place
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by crav excellent all around
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by momowen Great Hotel out of San Diego hustle & bustle
I chose this hotel simply because I did not want to stay in the immediate San Diego area because their hotels are worn out, dirty & over priced! This is a great place to stay. It's within walking distance to the beach and fantastic restaurants (we never had to wait for a table & there were 9 in our party). The rooms are very large and comfortable. We ate breakfast everyday in the restaurant and the food was fantastic! I was even pleasently surprised that "kids eat free" here. It made breakfast super affordable and the portions were huge. Parking was always easy & close to the front door. I would definetly stay here again when visiting the San Diego area. We didn''t mind driving the extra 30 miles to get to our entertainment for the day.

Check in and Check out were easy and quick, They honored my status and were able to upgrade my room.
I would definitely stay here again!

Stayed when visiting family in Carlsbad. The hotel staff was very nice and welcoming - seemed like they all have fun working there. Surprised by the location - just a few minutes to walk into the harbor and to the beach. Will be back for sure.

After a long search in the internet we choose to stay in the Holiday Inn Marina Oceanside. This hotel is very nice and the price is ok. Only 15 minutes and we wre at the beach or in the citycenter.
We enjoy our stay and will be back if we are in this area again.

We had a wonderful time at this Holiday Inn on our summer trip to Legoland. It was a 5 minute drive to Legoland, the room was spacious and modern. Restaurant was decent and who can beat kids eat free! Would definitely return! Only downside was location and size of the swimming pool. Great two day stay.
