Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 The staff saved the day!
We had a lovely stay in a clean and tidy room with excellent pillows and bed. Breakfast was delivered on time and was delicious. Where the Holiday Inn at the Marina excelled came after our stay. The next day after our stay, my wife tells me she thinks she left her ring in the hotel room! She is distraught. I call front desk and they tell me they didn't find anything, but will contact the guest in the room now to see if they can search the room. I get a call later saying they found it! They went the extra mile for us and I feel like this is what they do all the time. Truly amazing service!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by csq70 A MUST STAY PROPERTY!
We visited Oceanside for the first time a couple of weekends ago to ride our stand up jet ski's in the surf. Site unseen, we booked this hotel and we were so pleased with the end result! The location was perfect, as it was near the launch ramp, had parking near by for large vehicles hauling trailers, the beach, restaurants and cool shops! We ended up staying an extra night and immediately booked suites for our next trip there in a few weeks. As business owners ourselves, we certainly appreciate the value of our customers feedback and I can with confidence say that we will recommend this property to all of our friends and family.
Thank you for making us so comfortable......see you soon!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by armc1 A great place with children
We had two rooms at the Holiday Inn Wednesday July 10th-Friday July 12th for myself, my two daughters and their three preschoolers, 6, 5, and 2.
The rooms were roomy and clean and the staff was wonderful. We ate 4 meals because the staff was so accommodating, friendly and helpful. The desk clerks were equally helpful. Both Francois and the young woman on on Wednesday night were equally helpful and friendly, as were the wait persons on both for breakfast and for dinner.
It was altogether a great experience.

One of the nicest hotels we have stayed in. My family was there for four days and we never had a problem. Clean rooms, great service, affordable for area, close to beach, and very kid friendly! We will defiantly recommend this hotel and come here again.

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.

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!!
