Holiday Inn Oceanside Marina - MCB Camp Pendleton Area is conveniently located near the Oceanside Marina, Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base, LEGOLAND® California Resort and popular Oceanside beaches. Our Southern California hotel's location promises guests easy access to the best of the area.
The hotel is located on world famous Pacific Coast Highway, right across the Newport Bay within walking distance to great restaurants and just a short drive from beaches, world-class shopping, and entertainment.
Overall this location lives up to most of the positive reviews others have shared. After staying here twice I can offer the following comments:
1 - Location - Great if you want to take a long run[More]
into the adjoining neighborhoods, but there is absolutely nothing within walking distance of this property. I know this is California and driving is the norm, but then again there are many other hotel options in Lake Forest which offer at least a few dining options with an easy walk. Be prepared to walk at least one mile if staying here.
2 - Furniture - For both of my stays, the quality of the furnishings (exclusive of bed) was average at best. For my current stay the couch and chairs are tired, worn, and a bit dirty. A bit of a turnoff. Overall the rooms are dated and lack some essential features (e.g., not enough power outlets)
3 - The breakfast, while included in the rate, is just average. I really do not see why this feature is receiving so many positive reviews - like everything else it depends what you are comparing to.
Nice staff and relatively clean property but would not go out of my way to stay here again. [Less]
