Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappyplatinum99 Best experience with our 3-year-old triplets
I never write reviews, but this place is worth a great one. We came for our triplets' 3rd birthday on June 10th. Although it was certainly a busy time of year for the hotel, we never knew it. The staff was extremely attentive, and even sent up cookies and small toys for the triplets' birthday. Room service was excellent, and so was the food. I ordered steak both nights because it was so darn good the first night - perfectly cooked and quickly delivered! The room was large and very comfortable for the 5 of us, and the staff quickly brought up extra towels after our trip to the beach. The walk to the beach can't be beat - it's a wonderful path that goes under the train tracks, and right through all the shops and restaurants. The beach is a hidden gem, not overly busy, with a cool rock wall to explore. We had the trip of a lifetime, and have booked our second stay already!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thekiwibrews Beautiful rooms. Exceeded expectationsx
We travelled with our 5 children and my mother. Had 2 Queen rooms across the hall from each other. The rooms were more roomy than expected with excellent storage available for food for the kids to snack on. The walk to the beach - the shops and the restaurants was short and not bad at all. We used the pool and jacuzzi every evening and they were very nice and not too busy. My son and I used the work out room and while small - was definitely adequate for our vacation needs. The staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome even when returning from the beach sunburned - sandy and worn out. It was a VERY enjoyable stay in a beautiful hotel. We plan to return next year...if not sooner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glenn39KY Large room with kitchen area
We loved the spacious room. It even had a little kitchen area with a sink, mini fridge and microwave. We wished it was a little closer to the beach but it was only a short walk away. However, you did have to walk down a dirt path and through a parking lot to get to the marina and then the beach. We would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FrequentVisitor1775 Another Awesome Stay!
This was my second trip to Camp Pendleton area this year. I again choose the Holiday Inn! The staff continue to excel in putting their best foot forward when taking care of their guests. For me, I can truly consider the Holiday Inn near Camp Pendleton my, "home away from home"! Thanks again for a wonderful stay!
PS Kudos to the morning breakfast and housekeeping staff!

Front Desk Staff are FANTASTIC. So nice, I would come down EVERY morning to get coffee and it would be out and the front desk JUMPED in to help me, they saved my life. I am not a happy person without my coffee...LOL Staff are always smiling and so nice to my daughters! Ask them how their day was and listen to them, so kind!
Thank you all for such a wonderful stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marcie17 Excellent staff; clean rooms
Was especially impressed with Francois and Mike at the front desk. They were knowledgeable, friendly and willing to accommodate. Rooms couldn't have been cleaner or in better shape. Linens were excellent. We left a large tip for housekeeping since we were so impressed with their service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sharon 54 Excellent hotel and staff
We stayed at this hotel for a reunion and used the conference room for our hospitality room. The desk and kitchen staff were friendly and helped us with anything we asked for. We also found the room to be clean and spacious. This was actually one of the best Holiday Inns I've stayed at. For our purposes, the location was ideal and nice that it was walking distance to the restaurants at the harbor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TJS05 Not the best looking area, but the hotel is great!
I needed a room for one night in the area and the Holiday Inn met my needs. The room was large and appeared updated. It was a nice stay - just wish I could've enjoyed more of the facility.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stampin4fun Huge rooms and comfy beds.
We loved our stay at Holiday Inn Oceanside, we were in California along with several family members for our sons wedding. The rooms were very clean and huge. We only ate breakfast there, it was good. Lots to do within walking distance, marina/beach/food/shopping - we will definitely be coming back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RWB74 Fantastic Extended Stay!
I stayed at this established for an extended period of time while working at Camp Pendleton. I can honestly say that it was the best hotel experience that I've had in my life! Geoffrey has a world class team that always accommodated my every need. Joanne, Sevrine, Emily, Michael, Francois, Steve, Taylor, Katrina, Tyler, Alex, Pilar, Laura, Kelly and Pepe made me feel at home and were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant has wonderful food and the bar has a lively atmosphere. The housekeeping staff kept a very clean room and room service always came in a prompt manner. The swimming pool and hot tub were clean and there is a great rooftop area to relax after a hard day's work. I would definitely recommend this establishment to any weary traveler and look forward to staying there again on my next visit to Southern California.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great location, excellent price!
The room was huge and had everything you might need in a hotel room, fridge, two sinks, huge shower. The lobby was very clean and the staff were great.
The room had a strange odor and there was a small stain on one of the furniture pieces, but it may have just been that room.
I would visit again.

Originally, i considered other hotel properties in the area but chose this one because i am very familiar with the area and liked its closeness to the Oceanside Harbor, Oceanside Beaches and highway 5, It was a very pleasant experience and the staff was very attentive and friendly. I would definetely stay here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by susanlmft Wonderful access to the pier.
You can walk to the beautiful Oceanside pier. They have such a wonderful staff. We come here frequently and they upgrade us if they have they room. It is well worth being in the Rewards club for the late check out time they offer. We've never been disappointed. The one and only draw back is that it doesn't price as a three star hotel. It is more money but, I guess the logic is that they provide a great experience.

I travel over 100 nights a year and this property is one of my favorites. The staff is excellent, especially Mike at the front desk. The accommodations and location make this a must stay hotel if you are in the northern section of San Diego county.
