Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ToddM88 Great location
Stay was nice. The only major dissapointment was the quality of the towels. They were like worn out sandpaper. The rest of the hotel experience was great. Easy walk to the beach.

Francois and Mike at the desk were great. Restaurant server (her name slips my mind) was also wonderful.
Would definitely stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bezwez Housekeeping Lacking
I only negative review was that everyday seemed to be something new with house keeping...
Not enough towels
Trash Bag left in center of the room
Bathroom not pick-up
I think other than the housekeeping experience we would stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BKBKBK A nice surprise!
Great location...right off the interstate. When I arrived I was a little worried that the hotel looked older than I expected. I was worried about cleanliness and allergies!! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly! I was upgraded to a Junior Suite without even asking. Once I arrived to the room I was pleasantly surprised. The room was very spacious, modern, CLEAN and quiet. I could see the ocean! I also enjoyed the Observation Deck...a nice surprise!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Fantastic Location for Oceanside!
My family and I enjoyed the location and staff at this Holiday Inn. Everyone on staff was welcoming, and really worked to make stay enjoyable. The roof top observation deck was nice as were the variety of items in the sundry shop. Everything from a quick snack item to a sand shovel and pail for the beach.

Very convenient location near the ocean, harbor and entrance to Camp Pendleton. Just returned from Afghanistan with a Marine Advisor Team and Emily at the front desk made sure one of the Marines got a room despite the high occupancy.

This hotel is no doubt one of the most awesome places we have ever stayed. The rooms are spacious, immaculate, quiet and well equipped with fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and safe.
They have a small onsite restaurant which serves breakfast and dinner up until 10PM. It is a very personalized service because of it's size and the dinner meals are somewhat on the home cooked side. Don't be surprised if the Chef personally brings your food to the table. The breakfast is buffet style with hot scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and potatoes. In addition, you can make your own waffles. The remainder is breads, muffins, fruits, cereals, juices, milk, yogurt, etc.,etc.. The breakfast is somewhat pricy, but not to fear! If you have kids, no matter how many, "Kids Eat Free", breakfast and dinner as long as an adult meal is purchased.
The staff on ALL LEVELS are extremely friendly, careing, helpful and totally dedicated to making your stay as perfect as they can. I can not say enough about the staff. They all were awesome!
The location is ideal. close to I-5, restaurants and gas stations. The beach is well within walking distance but I wouldn't recommend walking for the elderly, people with physical limitations such as bad knees, back etc. The pathway is uneven dirt, traversing a moderate hillside slope.
We would stay here again with no hesitation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 THE BEST
Where do I begin… I travel a lot and spend a lot of time in hotels. This hotel lets me speechless; I simply cannot say enough good things about this hotel. The things that are important to me are safety, cleanliness and friendliness. This Holiday Inn meets and in most cases excels in all areas. Every hotel employee I came in contact with, including the maintenance personnel, the house keepers, food service personnel, the front desk people were extremely friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, Mike’s name is the only one I can remember because he was usually at the front desk when I came down; again every one of them was professional and friendly. I must ensure I mention that they have new treadmills in their fitness room, which I appreciated. I am sure the hotel manager will appreciate this comment.
Then its location to Camp Pendleton is perfect.
I just wish ALL hotels followed the example of this hotel, when it comes to interfacing with their customers, helpfulness and overall level of professionalism and courteously.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by azdad Good Times in Oceanside
My family is used to 4 and 5 star time shares and hotels from when I was employed by a fortune 500 company. Since taking a job with a non-profit we have tried to keep up our tradition of family vacations at the beach... but every time it has been horrible. Either the hotel was nice but far from the beach or it was on the beach and a hole in the wall.
Traveling a little north of San Diego and fining this Holiday Inn was the solution to all that. It is a nice property, 10 min walk from the beach AND a Joe's Crab Shack (score!) and they are SUPER welcoming of families. We have 6 people in our family so we almost always feel like we are putting the staff of a hotel out just by showing up and trying to get everyone in one room But the staff at this Holiday Inn was great. They let us take our older kids in the fitness center, Let the younger ones all eat for free at the resturant even hooked them all up with stuffed animals one morning.
Also one day as we were headed to the beach the lady at the front desk told us "hey if you are tired later and don't want to walk back from the beach, give us a call we can come get you." How cool is that? The manager's reception was nice and my wife and I felt safe leaving our eldest in charge and having an hour to ourselves with free drinks and appraisers.
Anyway, this Holiday in is super cool and the staff is on par with any 5 star resort we have ever stayed at. If you want to be treated like you are royalty but not shell out the $$$ this place is a good pick. Sure it's a Holiday Inn, but I found myself forgetting we were not at a resort more than once because of how well we were treated and how accommodating the staff was.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Caligirl73 Great stay
pros- I would recommend this hotel! It was safe, nice, fairly quiet, decent sized rooms ( bathrooms are a little small), the FREE wifi in the the room was easy to access, adequate parking, walking distance to the beach and restaurants, VERY friendly staff, free coffee and tea at all hours, great bar, restaurant,( again very friendly staff) good food, we had to print some tickets and the computers were easy to use, I can not same enough nice things.
cons- The pool was a little small, but enough rooms, hot tub was too hot, but it was all clean, and plenty of towels. I had called in advance worried that the train would be noisy, but I was assured that there would be no issue and there was not. What a GREAT stay!

Visited Oceanside during a business trip 6-14 July. The hotel staff were excellent. The bar manager, Taylor, makes you feel at home and has plenty of suggestions for things to do in the area. I will definitely be staying here in the future.

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.

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.

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.
