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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LegoFan Clean and quiet, but pretty basic.
We found our room to be clean and well maintained. I checked the room for bugs and did not find any. The property is non-smoking which is great. The staff were very friendly, always over four days. The on site restaurant had pretty good food. I found the bed to be terrible for comfort, and the pillows were awful. The only comfortable place to sit in the room and watch tv was the desk chair. The pool has a mobility chair for the disabled and is warm. Otherwise, the pool is basic rectangle and a bit boring. The jacuzzi was good but foamed up with either lots of chemicals or people's body lotions. Our room had no bathtub which was a huge disappointment. I could not get the safe to work, but my husband could. Personally, I felt like the room was worth less than we paid. FYI, there is no ocean view.

I stayed in April 2014 for business. Upon check-in the staff was very friendly and the appearance of the hotel lobby was very clean and professional. The room I stayed in was clean and in great shape. I would highly recommend this hotel when staying in the area!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mommyofone The Most AMAZING stay!
This is the first review for a hotel I have ever written. Our stay was incredible! The staff were courteous and efficient from the moment we checked in until we checked out. The room was spacious and VERY clean (and the showers are great!). We had breakfast every morning at the restaurant, and the food was top quality. The wait staff was friendly and very attentive. We ate dinner there once and it was equally fantastic. The hotel is a short walk to the marina and beach, which also has some great restaurants (Dominic's and Joe's Crab Shack were delicious!). Overall, the best stay we have had at a Holiday Inn!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by todd36 Clean, Nice and an Above Average Experience
Overall this is a nice hotel. Staff was for the most part very attentive and friendly. Only recommendations have to do with some of the attempts at energy savings and the restaurant. Room was very dark, the hotel is trying energy efficient bulbs, which is ok, but now days they do make these brighter. Regarding the restaurant, the prices, particularly for breakfast are expensive, given what you get.
Otherwise, staff was nice and overall experience was good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TALNCAL A truely wonderful place to stay
The Holiday Inn at Oceanside Marina is a wonderful place to stay, the entire staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Geoffrey has worked diligently to build a truly professional, knowledgeable, and friendly team, who go the extra mile to ensure each and every guest feels at home when they arrive. Joanne, Sevrine, Emily, Michael, Francois, Steve, Taylor, Katrina, Tyler, Alex, and Pilar, just to name a few, strive to make each guests stay at the hotel as pleasant and relaxing as possible. I not only look forward to my vacations in Oceanside, I look forward to my stay at the Holiday Inn. I want to say “Thank You” to the staff of the Holiday Inn Oceanside Marina, you have made my stay wonderful and memorable. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 GREAT SECRET
I had no idea this hotel existed and was this close to Camp Pendleton. What a well kept secret. The hotel is clean, safe and convenient. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The only problem I encountered ended up being a good thing. Neither of the treadmills was working and when I spoke to the receptionist, he was unable to get the repairmen guy at that moment. He did, however, recommend a running trail that turned out to be perfect. In the end it worked out well. I will recommend this hotel to anyone going to Camp Pendleton.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scott74 Hotel staff again makes the difference
I stayed at the property a couple months back and left a review of how friendly and helpful the staff was. When I returned for this stay I was greeted by name by more than one member of the staff. Everyone there makes the stay feel as much like home as they can, I observed this with other guests as well. This stay Michael, Taylor, and Steve were 3 that just really helped and stood out. The hotel is nice and well kept, it is in a good location, it's close to the beach, other hotels in the area can say the same, but they do not have the same people.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dzinliu Home away from home
We recently sold our home in Carlsbad, but are looking for a condo purchase in the Carlsbad Oceanside Area. We go down to the area once or twice a month to visit friends and we always stay at the Holiday Inn Oceanside Marina.
The staff is always friendly and accommodating and the rooms are always clean. They have a nice restaurant and a bar that is open from 5:00PM to 10:00 PM for that "after dinner" drink. This hotel is one of the nicer places to stay in the beach area and within walking distance to the marina.
I would highly reccommend this hotel to anyone who is selective about where they stay in the area!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scott74 Great customer service
First, I have never left a review for any hotel I stayed in, but the service here made me want to stop and take the time to leave feedback. Property was clean and about a 5 minute walk to the harbor/beach area. Everything was great about the stay, especially the staff at the Holiday Inn. I stayed 6 weeks, and every employee was great. I could name a few(Taylor/Emily to name a couple) that made the stay enjoyable, but Francois went above and beyond any expectations every time I had a question or needed help with something. Hire more people like him.

Rate is to be expected for a weekend I suppose.
Yet in spite of our discounted rate, your Front desk attendant, Franciox, went above and beyond in accommodating our request for a room that meets our needs.
We will definitely consider staying here again, if the price is reasonable.
