    « Amazing stay!! »

    Alyssa at the front desk was beyond helpful to me. He helped me get a room in the middle of the night. Made sure that everything was perfect. She was such an amazing help to me that I really hope her customer service is there every time I come down to Oceanside!

    « Thank you, Meagan! »

    Excellent hotel and service! From the moment we entered, we felt comfortable. Everything was very nice and pleasant. The exceptional quality at this hotel was Meagan at the front desk. Meagan was excellent! She was not only professional but was very much a person with efficiency and heart. When our family needed to change to Best Western Plus at Oceanside, Meagan made accommodations to make our move most comfortable. Our family was under much stress. Meagan made a bright spot in this time of gloom. Thank you...

    Very helpful and friendly staff. The hotel as a whole made our stay in Oceanside a pleasant experience. Would stay there again. A great value for anyone traveling with children and great location. Planning another trip to Oceanside for the festival of lights and will stay only at the Best Western!

    Hotel staff was extremely helpful pointing out things of intrest around Oceanside. Easy walking distance to the beach, the pier, downtown and many great restaurants. Within walking distance of the train station take the coaster to San Diego. Great trip. Hope to stay here again.

    « Close to the beach »

    Close to the beach! Meagan (with a heart ??) was awesome! She was very helpful to us, and anyone else she helped. Room was a suite. Big for our family of four. Full kitchen which was nice and also had a huge walk in closet!!

    « Good price for accomodations »

    We spent four nights here and found the location to be convenient to restaurants, beach and close to the I-5. Rooms were adequate and very clean. The entire hotel was well maintained and the staff most helpful. Having the breakfast included was a bonus. Would definitely stay here again.

    « Good solid value »

    We stayed here overnight, participating in Oceanside's Bike the Coast/Taste the Coast event. It was a good deal on Hotels.com, significantly less expensive than booking direct with Best Western. The receptionist told us that they had just received the highest BW rating on a recent inspection, and they were obviously very proud. The service was very good on checking in. Though we wanted a late checkout based on the following morning's bike event, they were understandable loathe to grant this but did allow us until 1130. There were numerous bike event participants at the hotel, and they tried to put everyone on the first floor. We were on the third floor, with no major issues except the screaming children in the room next to ours. Apparently, this site hasn't heard of thick walls or soundproofing, but certainly the bratty kids were not the hotel's fault. What was within control of the hotel was the breakfast. Horrid planning and terrible service, especially since they were well aware of the number of bike event participants that would be heading to an early breakfast. They ran out of food, the continental items (yogurt, fruit) were at a premium, and basics like OJ and water were not replenished in a timely manner. It was a horrible free-for-all, when they could easily have stocked up on athlete-friendly items that would have been simple to prep and serve (yogurt and fruit were a nice though but badly executed, and they could/should have had breakfast bars or something equally easy to grab and go). They have a pool and hot tub at the end of the building, and lots of free parking. It's a bit of a challenge to get back on the freeway, crossing the Coast Hwy. All in all, I think a normal slow day would have seen a totally different experience. However, it seems to me that a hotel wants the rush and increased business, and therefore should be prepared to service (and earn) that business.

    « Love this place »

    Third stay. Same gr8 experience. Love Oceanside. Little disappointed on the increase in room rate when I requested another night's stay. That floating room rate is greedy and disappointing. Other than that this hotel is always a gr8 experience for us.

    « Nice value »

    This hotel is very clean, modern and well serviced. Very good overall value and close to dining and the harbor. The staff as both friendly and helpful. The breakfast is above average and the breakfast area was very clean. Plus there is some outdoor areas to enjoy.

    « Careful of bathtubs as they can be slippery! »

    Both my brother and I slipped in the bathtubs in our (separate) rooms. I actually slipped twice. We called the front desk to let them know after the first slip and to see if they had a bath mat, but they didn't. My parents (in their late 70's) were also staying there, so this concerned me a lot. It was very disconcerting. It was odd because sometimes the tubs seemed like there was enough traction, but a minute or two later they are slippery, and vice versa - slippery to begin with, fine as the shower goes on. Should be addressed, IMO. I have stayed at LaQuinta (next door) in the past and will probably stay there next time I am in town. Rooms are larger there and no slippery tubs! I go often as my daughter lives there.

    « I'm a fan! »

    We've stayed at this hotel several times this year and I can honestly say, "I'm a true fan" of this hotel. The service personnel from the front desk,housekeeping, maintenance and breakfast staff were all super friendly and helpful! The rooms are comfortable and clean and the friendly staff makes you feel like part of their family. Truely unique in the hotel industry from my experience.

    « Great place and wonderful staff! »

    My family has got three rooms and they kept us all together. The rooms are clean and updated, but the staff was the best of all. We really appreciated the kindness and professionalism of all, but especially Sarah and Jamie at breakfast! Thank you for the smiles and help. Made our stay that much better.

    « Very friendly staff, not best location »

    We were in King room with kitchen on 3rd floor, far west end, window looking toward ocean. Would not call it Ocean view, but we could see it between buildings, and beyond rooftops. No elevator on that end of hallway, had to go back to front end of building to ride up/down, but stairwell right next to our room which we used when not carrying stuff. Kitchen has bare essentials, but no dishwasher, so not exactly certain how clean any of the serving ware was. And no scrubbing pad/brush to clean stuck on food on pans. Refrigerator nice and clean. AC worked great but quite noisey. Window could have been opened for cool air, but traffic/train noise already bad with it closed. Getting back to freeway from hotel a little confusing, and not super easy...lots of traffic. Hot tub not very hot for our taste, but it was clean. Walk to beach on long side if you are bringing chairs/cooler etc... I would book a room closer to beach if that is your intention for your visit...or even closer to the harbor where there is an underpass to get past the train. Staff super friendly, and always smiling. They found my cell phone that I left in the lobby, and promptly returned it to me before I even knew I lost it!

    « Very nice hotel for the price. »

    Our room was a decent size, very clean, all new and modern. Better than average free breakfast; great location; nice staff. The only thing missing is it's not really a nice walk on the busy streets to the nearby beach or harbor.

    « Pleasant Surprise »

    Stayed here when we visited Legoland. Very nice surprise! Staff was very friendly. Hotel has been remodeled and has a nice, transitional decor. The breakfast was ok - a tad salty on the hot items but a nice selection of food. I would stay here again. Close to Oceanside Pier.

    « Excellent service »

    This hotel offered excellent presentation and service. It was more upscale in appearance than I expected for the price. The staff was always smiling and friendly. Breakfast was great. Manager was running around helping the staff in the morning at breakfast and even picking up trash in the parking lot in his shirt and tie. Very impressive.

    « Pleasant and Relaxing »

    Stayed 4 nights and had a very pleasant experience. The facility is very clean and well maintained. Rooms and lobby are all nicely decorated in a modern contemporary style. Good breakfast in the morning. All staff members are very friendly and helpful, very response to guest needs. Walking distance to beach and harbor. This is my go to hotel in Oceanside.

    « Clean, quiet and super friendly! »

    The other reviews are not wrong. Right on N Coast Highway 101. Across the street from visitor center and In N Out burger. (yay!) Large rooms. Staying in room 316 and it is great. Comfortable beds. Clean. Nice bathroom. Love the angled bathroom setup which allows for more room in the bathroom itself and the bath shower. Water pressure could be stronger, but this is California afterall. Breakfast is great. Couple waffle stations. Eggs, bacon, sausages, omelets depending on the day. Hot oatmeal, fruit, yogurts for the healthier crowd. Yum! Staff is awesome. Always friendly, from the front desk, to cleaning staff, to the breakfast room attendants. Paid approx 100 usd per night for double Queen room. Free parking. Free WiFi. Fridge and microwave in room. Outdoor pool. To list one 'meh' thing .. Single elevator. 2nd elevator appears out of service. No biggie though. Might just have to wait an extra minute. Would definitely stay again.

    « EXCELLENT customer service »

    EXCELLENT customer service in every aspect from this Hotel..Front desk!! Cleaning !! and the breakfast employee!!! ALYSSA at the front desk greeted us like we had been friends/family..Once she heard my name on the reservation she commented that she remembered talking to me on the phone..I told her that with all the visitors that come in and out of the hotel, I was surprised that she remembered my info and our conversation. Alyssa smiled and said that she cares about helping all of their visitors..I was MOST impressed with her genuine demeanor and professionalism.

    « Homey, comfortable and convenient »

    A comfortable spot to visit sights in the San Diego area. The hotel has a homey feel with a lot of comfortable little spots to sit in and outside. Bed was comfortable and room was quiet and could be completely darkened. Pool area was clean and well maintained. Nice, easy walks to the pier and harbour and within walking distance of restaurants. Staff is outstanding, helpful and pleasant.

    « Friendly & clean »

    We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights with our teenager in a king + double sofa bed room. It was clean, air worked extremely well (hubby likes to freeze me out!). It is located right off the I-5 near the harbor & is very close to Camp Pendleton. The front desk staff were all very friendly as well. They have a little patio area with a gas fire and 2 little seating areas with TVs (one is part of business center). They served the normal hot breakfast of eggs, sausage, etc. but we did not eat there. The only problem was the rock hard bed - we have a sleep number bed at home which my husband & I sleep with the bed set to 35 & 45 respectively. So we tossed & turned ALL night and back muscles were cramping quite a bit. But this is pretty typical of these lower budget hotels. Overall, it is what you expect from a Best Western - I have not stayed at BW Plus before so nothing to compare to from that perspective.

    « Nice hotel, friendly staff »

    We r having a nice stay at the Oceanside Best Western Plus. We upgraded to a room w/a kitchenette. The mgr said we would have a room w/a view of the ocean but he nelected to tell us that we would be looking over the tops of a trailer court. I thot that was a little deceptive. The breakfast was very good this morning, the attendent did a good job.

    « it was ok not to my best western plus standard... »

    well I have stayed in 2 hotels in oceanside that I consder about the same type of hotel.. but when i stay in hotels I usually stay in best western plus.. first time I stayed in differnt type of hotel in oceanside and I like it,,, I stay at this best western plus thursday the sixth of october..... well I am mainly comparing to the last stay I had in oceanside at the other hotel.... well I went to check in and it was ok,, the person was friendly but seemed like it was forced friendly which is kiinda fake,,... than I ask if they had complimentry tolitries. like toothpaste and to the othbrsuh and razor and \\shaveing cream cause I usally forget those items, they said yes but I had to buy it,, that was the first time I had to buy stuff like that from a best westerm plus so right after that that was a minus for me for the hotel,,,,,if the hotel has to hold a fee on your card for incendentals rather than takeing your card number thats a minus for me.. Other hotel I stayed in oceansdie did not charge the fee even tho the fee gets reverse when you check,,, the jacuzzi was warm but wish it was a little hotter..the pool did not seemed to be heated... the room was just ok... it was like any other hotel of that qaulity too me ...to me there was nothing really special about the room... they had a mico wave and a fridge. tV and bathroom.. I t had ac .. it worked good but not as wells as I wanted too..the view of the room ,, I think I viewd moble homes... The breakfast was a standard best western plus breafast.. with hot and cold food like eggs sausage cereal and pastiers juices milk and bread,,, yogurt and fruit and the famous waffle makers that most hotels have,,,, breakfest rooom was good size. the bed was ok bbut i have slepont better... it was ok would i stay here again if I was in the area proably not,, I would try a differnt one or stay in the hotel that i like when i first came up here... if they would change some stuff i might give it another try

    Spent four days in Oceanside in September. We have been to California severale times, but this was our first time in Oceanside. It will not be our last. We chose to stay at Best Western Plus because of the good reviews. We were not disappointet. From the time we arrived we loved it. Nice, helpful staff, clean rooms and super breakfast. If you ad good location (close to beach and shopping) and lovely weather to that, you get a perfect stay. I will absolutely recommend this hotel. If ever in Oceanside again this is where we will stay. 4 happy norwegians

    Our airline held us up a day and Best Western was excellent to cancel our first night for us without charges and we were able to keep our room for the other three nights that we had scheduled. This alone spoke volumes for this hotel. Everything was wonderful and everyone was so friendly! I will be back! :o)

    « Oceanside near harbor »

    We chose this hotel because it was a Best Western Plus and I could use reward cards. It was close to Camp Pendleton where we had been with family. The staff is excellent. So friendly and helpful. We were given a room with a kitchen, which I didn't even know I was going to have, It was perfect, as we had a 7 month old and a five year old. There was plenty of room for the stroller and other baby items. It was perfect for our needs.

    « Second Home »

    We have been coming to this Hotel now for about a year. Every time we come here we receive excellent service. The staff that work here continue to go out of their ways to make sure that our stay is as comfortable and hassle free as possible. The rooms are always very clean and comfortable. The beds are comfortable. The breakfasts are plentiful and you have a good variety of things to choose from. Swimming pool and Jacuzzi are always clean and very well maintained. They also have Barbecues out at the pool area for guests to use. The gym has everything that will give you a good workout. They also have a laundry room. I will continue to stay at this hotel and highly recommend it to anyone that will be visiting Oceanside.

    We stayed one night here at this hotel. Check in and out was fast and the front desk staff was friendly. The breakfast was good and the breakfast attendant worked very hard keeping everything stocked and clean. We used the laundry and everything worked fine. The beach was not too far of a walk. We felt like this hotel was a good value for what we paid.

    « Visit to Oceanside »

    My husband and I stayed here on our trip to southern California. He was a Marine stationed at Camp Pendleton from 1970-1972. We chose Oceanside as our "base" because he spent lots of time in town while stationed there. I chose this hotel based on the reviews on Trip Advisor while planning the trip. I was not disappointed one bit. The facility is clean and nicely decorated. There is ice cold fruit flavored water in the lobby, along with cookies in the evening. The room was quiet and comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating if needed. Breakfast was pretty normal for a hotel. Hot foods offered each morning. Personally, we would prefer bacon over the sausage offered each day. We would definitely choose this hotel again should we visit the area in the future.

    Great hotel, service and price. The location of this hotel was awesome, next to the pier with lots of restaurants and shopping near by. Walking distance to the weekly street fair type farmers' market in the evening. It was a quick trip this time, however, we enjoyed it so much when we return to visit family, we will definitely re-book here.

    « Very close to the beach and Pier. »

    We chose the BW Palms because we were looking for a house to purchase in Oceanside or San Marcos, CA and it is right on the Pacific Coast Highway and near all the stores and restaurants in beachfront Oceanside. We had a first floor room (#121) and it was nice enough but it was too far from the handicapped parking for me. My faults with the room were that we had damp towels every day we were there ,which was a week, the bathtub had no safety stickers in the bottom for standing while showering and the maid service was very slow cleaning our room as we never knew when she would show up. The very best thing in the hotel were the drink dispensers in the dining area which were available 24 hours a day. The Nescafe coffee machine made individual cups of the best coffee in town plus the creamer machine and three juice machines all good. The front desk was always friendly and helpful but could not get the damp towel situation fixed. We never ate breakfast there although it was included with our room as we went to the Beach Break café every morning but we did use the coffee and juice machines the whole week. We would stay there again if they gave us a room closer to the handicapped parking lot so all in all it was a pleasant stay.

    « Great Anniversary Weekend »

    We chose this hotel off the internet because it looked nice, we wanted near the beach and we like Best Western. There was no problem checking in even though we arrived early. We told them we were celebrating our 38th Anniversary, and they offered some discounts for restaurants in the area plus gave us some great recommendations for places to eat. We went to dinner and when we returned to our room there was an Anniversary card on the bed with everyone's signature. That was so nice. We really enjoyed sitting by the fire pit each evening. The staff was so friendly. Every time we came and went we were greeted by the staff. They asked us about our day, how we were doing and thoroughly made us feel like we were special. Breakfast area was very nice. Didn't use the pool. Rooms were nice and clean. Would totally recommend this hotel.

    Needing access to both the beaches and Camp Pendleton, we chose this Best Western Hotel. We were very pleased with this location. Staff was friendly and site was clean. We had trouble with the internet service, but decided we didn't need to use it after all. Someone was always working at the hotel, making improvements, cleaning, painting, etc. It definitely shows that the manager takes pride in this hotel.

    Very pleasant stay at this hotel. I chose this hotel because it's really close to Camp Pendleton (visiting my Marine). It's less than a mile away. It's also really close to the beach, shopping and restaurants. The hotel is quiet, has clean rooms with comfortable beds, daily breakfast with lots of food choices (limited choices if you're vegan) and a very pleasant hotel staff. This was my first time staying at a Best Western and it was just lovely! I'll definitely will stay again when I travel to Oceanside.

    This was a great hotel choice to stay with in Oceanside. The hotel is in a convienent location. Close to the beach and the pier. We could see the ocean from our room.

    « Close enough to the beach »

    This is a nice and clean and friendly place to stay. Its not a large hotel. Everything is very petite here. The lobby the sitting area and the business office. The fitness area and pool are also petite. There is a laundry area and a front outside sitting area with a very scenic fire pit. The good news is that many of the guests choose to run along and conduct their business outside of the hotel or head to the beach. All of the amenities are nicely kept and I wish I could have enjoyed every little treat. However with the beach just a few blocks away you will not likely want to miss out on the sand and the sun. The staff was very relaxed and very welcoming. The rooms are a tad small given the two queen beds but its adequate. The rate was in my opinion fair and I was also able to use my AAA to receive a discount. Breakfast in the morning is a plus! I would definitely recommend that others stay here especially if visiting family members nearby and you just need a few nice sleeping beds. Its not a luxury hotel but for business stays and families in town to visit families its definitely a good location and if you have to stay on premise you will have a relaxing day and most likely you will have the run of the entire facility.

    The hotel lobby is beautiful, when entering the lobby you are greeted with a friendly smile. Hotel is very neat and clean. My room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was great. Make your own waffles, scrambled eggs, ham and cheese omelets, sausage links, potatoes, bagels, bread for toast, muffins, cereals, yogurts, juices and coffee. The front desk was very helpful with giving directions to the pier, harbor and local restaurants. I would differently stay here again.

    « Great price for the buck »

    Keep in mind, this is the Best Western PLUS across from In and Out Burger, not the one NON-PLUS a few miles to the south. It seems in the reviews that they are often confused when you read the description. The interior of this one is much different than that one. The staff was very kind. The lobby and the rooms have been updated to a modern look. It's right next to downtown and just a few blocks from the pier. Rooms were clean. Housekeeping was super nice. The only deficits I gave it were related to parking. I also had someone try to come in my room at 5 am when I was the only one with a key (i.e...use the security latch)...and the person at the desk seemed a bit indifferent about it. The walls are a bit thin...but I'm not living here. I had neanderthals that stayed above me. Breakfast was average and seems to be small given the amount of rooms in the hotel. But, for the money, it was a great stay overall.

    Hotel is old, outdated and the group areas are small and narrow. Our team and families could not find a place to "hang out - small pool, patio in parking lot and sad area with gentleman's club next door. The photos are misleading. Had a very small room and the staff was clueless. I would never stay here again.

    This is a beautiful hotel. The staff is very friendly and they go out of their way to be helpful. The hotel is close to the beach, the Harbor, and shopping. My husband and I like to walk so we walked everywhere. We were there three days and met many staff members but it was Kat that made a lasting impression. She was so attentive and professional. When we needed help getting to locations we wanted to visit she would pull out her map and get us on our way. We also had the same housekeeper for the three days and she made sure our room was picture perfect. I love this hotel

    « Pleasantly Surprised »

    Online reviews for this hotel were mixed but I have to say how impressed we were with our stay. First and foremost- every employee we encountered was cheerful and helpful. Secondly- the room was nice and clean and well equipped with pillows and towels. Third - hands down the BEST breakfast we have ever had included with our hotel stay. We ate well and it saved us a lot of money on food while at Legoland. If I had to give a "con" I'd say the water pressure in the shower wasn't great. Also, being so close to the beach I would have loved a self services washer/dryer on site but they do offer laundry services if needed. I can't rave enough about every member of the staff from the front desk all the way to the house keepers. Wonderful folks!

    « NICE PLACE BY THE BEACH »

    Although this hotel is about .3 miles from the beach and the Oceanside Harbor, we chose to drive around town to see the local sites, including the Oceanside Harbor, a large selection of restaurants and bars, and souvenir shops. The pool and jacuzzi are clean and refreshing, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable, clean, quiet, and rates are very reasonable.

    « Home Away From Home »

    Our family decided to take a last minute, first trip to Legoland before school starts. We are 2 1/2 hours away from home and we knew that we were planning to stay in the area. We went online, looked for a last minute deal and took the chance with booking here at Best Western Plus. WE ARE SO GLAD WE DID!! To drive there from Legoland was very easy, when we pulled up the "first impression" was beautiful and amazed, the lobby was so clean and inviting, and the most important thing.....customer service, the receptionist who checked us in was so nice, friendly and very helpful. After a long day at the park, we were eager to get to our room. The room and bathroom was very clean and fully stocked. We all were comfortable and had a great night sleep. Hot Breakfast was excellent and perfect for adults and children. We were lucky enough to have the same receptionist check us out (I feel bad that I forgot his name....he wears glasses), again excellent customer service. We plan on going back to Legoland in the next couple of months AND we plan on staying here again....our home away from home!! (just be careful when pulling into the hotel from the opposite side, this would be the ONLY hiccup that I have to say......no biggie)

    Recently stayed here for 4 nights. The employees are amazing. We arrived early (before noon) and had no trouble getting our room. Meagan at the front desk was pleasant at check-in and every time we spoke with her. In fact, the entire front desk staff were great...friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and I have never seen a housekeeping staff work so hard and so long making sure every room and area were clean and stocked. The breakfast room was open every day at 6 AM which is nice for guests who want to get an early start to their day. A nice variety of breakfast food. I'd highly recommend this hotel and will stay again if we are in the area.

    I looked up the hotels in Oceanside and decided to stay at Best Western Plus. I asked for the top floor and they were able to give me that. The room was very clean and everything worked well. I was concerned about possibly hearing people in the pool (I was at the end of the bldg), however the windows were so thick, I couldn't hear them. I was very happy with my stay.

    « Friendly service and quality facilities for a reasonable price in greater San Diego »

    We needed an affordable place to stay in the San Diego area and it was Comic-Con weekend, so we were forced to look in the suburbs and we were drawn to BW Plus Oceanside Palms by its favorable reviews. The reviews were right! Staff is especially friendly, helpful and responsive. Lots of nice touches such as free cookies and infused ice water at front desk, affordable and well-stocked vending machines, coin-op laundry, extra waffle makers and plenty of seating in the breakfast room, fruit offered with breakfasts, decent coffee, and appealing contemporary decor--especially the cool water bubble sculpture in the lobby. Pool and spa are basic but kept at a nice temperature and there's a glass fire in the patio adjacent to the attractive lobby area. Our room was slightly tight for 4 of us (we had the king bed with pull-out sofa) but all was so clean, well maintained and comfortable that we were happy. It's a cut above the average motel but without the price gouging of higher-end hotels. Parking and internet were free. The only down side was the long-ish commute into central San Diego, so we'd especially recommend this place if you'll mostly be in the northern suburbs and beach towns. However, even if you're going to central SD, it's do-able from here (just allow extra time for traffic!), and the money you'll save can be spent on some of the city's excellent restaurants. Five stars and a big thumbs up for this well-managed property.

    Nice hotel for the value. I initial its booked on Priceline but called the hotel to ask questions. I also asked for rates. They beat price line by $40!! They will match any offer. We were accompanied by our 13 year old grand-daughter. She was comfortable on the sofa bed. But room is a little small when you pull out the bed. Staff was courteous and always glad to answer questions, give directions and dining recommendations. More seasoned adults should choose to stay on the third floor as recommended by the staff. There are a lot of families, teens and young adults...so third floor room minimizes the noise. Breakfast selections were good.

    « Helpful and friendly front desk »

    The moment we checked in we were given great service. We were given great advise on what to see, where to eat, what to do, and the best advise was to park in a free parking lot by the harbor and walk to the beach. We had a quiet room on the top floor. The breakfast was good. The room was clean. The lounge, fire pit area, and breakfast room were very clean and comfy. Would stay there again.

    « AMAZING service! »

    I arrived in Oceanside after a long flight and was exhausted. I stopped at 3 other hotels that were filthy and had less than friendly staff. I came to Best Western and Alyssa met me at the counter. She was so friendly, and welcoming, and made me feel right at home. Each time I saw Alyssa in passing through the lobby during my stay she was warm, and genuinely interested in my stay and reason for my trip. My room was comfortable, and clean, and quiet. I am pretty sure the housekeeping staff are ninjas because other than making my bed each day nothing was disturbed, and they never missed a stop in my room no matter how long I was gone. The breakfast was hot, full of variety and fully stocked. I cannot get over how CLEAN and inviting this hotel is! Friendly! This is not a cheap hotel, and it shows! Your getting more than what you pay for here. I will stay here every time I come back to Oceanside. THANK YOU Alyssa for making me feel so welcome and secure and at home here. I cant say enough good things about this hotel.

    « Excellent stay, Great place, Convenient location! »

    The best hotel experience in a very long time! The price was on par with what I'd expect to pay in CA in peak season, but the hotel was nicer than others I've paid about the same for. We weren't trying to pay luxury prices, but wanted a little nicer than the usual 2* hotel, and I feel we got that. The differences in quality were in the details- dark wood trimmed mirrors and shelves in the bathroom, more free channels than avg. on tv, the breakfast room is left open at night in case you want a cup of tea, cocoa or coffee. The lobby has a small lounge and an office area, and they set out a nice glass water dispenser with fresh orange slices in it. There are also a few small outdoor patios to relax with your coffee or a book. One thing we liked was that it was a true Hotel where you have to enter the lobby to get to your room (or one of the alternate entrances that your room key opens). I underestimated the sense of comfort and security this adds. Also very notable, they alternate hot breakfast items (sausage or canadian bacon, scrambled eggs or mini omlets, sometimes potatoes- ooh, and tortillas and salsa in case you want a breakfast burrito) and there was ALWAYS an attendant or 2 making sure everything was clean and stocked. They had 3 waffle makers, and one made 4 mini waffles which was perfect for our family. Hint, they have mix ins that I think are intended for oatmeal, but the cranberries and chocolate chips work great in small amounts in the waffles! Did i mention that the hotel is a 10-15 minute walk to the beach and Thursday night Sunset Market (street fair)? About a 10 minute, drive to Legoland. The train that goes by is hardly noticeable (its very muted) and while i can't firmly state its schedule, i never noticed it after about 9 pm. I slept like a log everynight of our stay. The staff was super friendly and accomodating and went above and beyond to provide good service. We will definitely come back to this Best Western!

    We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of our SoCal vacation. Although I was concerned about checking in after midnight, I had no trouble getting our room. The two staff members who checked me in were very friendly and informative. I inquired about getting some extra blankets if needed, and when I came back through with the luggage he had already got me the blankets. The room was nice and clean. There were several options for breakfast, and it was restocked as needed. The hotel was in a terrific location. It was about a 15 minute walk to Oceanside Pier and about a 15 minute drive to Legoland. In and Out Burgers was a 5 minute walk down the street. The outside pool looked nice, but we didn't have time for a swim. As far as the rest of the staff, everyone we encountered was pleasant including the kitchen and maintenance workers. We would stay here again!

    Room was not ready when I arrived at 3:40. After waiting for approximately 20 minutes for it to be cleaned, the smell of cleaning products in the room was strong. The remote didn't work, so it was replaced. The replacement remote only worked if you shook it first. My reason for selecting this hotel was the hot breakfast buffet, which was a disappointment. The line for waffles was longer than we had time for, so what that left us with was only runny/watery eggs and ham sandwich meat that was barely warmed. When exiting the room for breakfast, something was interfering with the door closing all the way. It would close it you pushed on it from the inside, but wouldn't close from the outside. I informed an employee upon checkout and she didn't even acknowledge my complaint about the door.

It was really clean, the staff were so nice and went really out of their way for me. Such a great experience and it wasn't even that expensive!

    Me and my husband stayed there for a night on May 27. Being first timer in Oceanside, CA we were assisted by Kat and Jesse on that day. Kat gave us the best customer service we have ever experienced. She was very welcoming and guided us patiently on the best places to see and even followed up with us the following day when we were checking out. Since we have driven for a couple of hours, we requested a 2 beds room instead of the king bed and Jesse without hesitation granted our request, and we really appreciate the assistance. The room was so clean and nothing we can even ask for. The bed was set up is so good that you can see under the bed. The pillows are so soft and smells so good and clean. We are a regular Marriott Hotel guests but since we've seen how Best Western present themselves, we will surely go back and recommend to our friends here in Canada. Also, the location is the best, there is In & Out Burger and Dennys just walking distance away, perfect in everything. Your staff is the best! The breakfast is also the best.

The only elevator is near the front of the hotel and the aisles are very long, so those with difficulty walking should ask for a room near the front.

    « Visiting my brother whom I hadn't seen for 23 years »

    My sister and I travelled for a May 5-10 visit. From the first time I searched for a place near to where my brother lived in California, I was caught by the intimate pictures on line of this place. Something about the online photos showing the outdoor fire bowl, sold me, so we thought we'd give it a shot. After a very long flight from Boston, and a traffic filled ride up from San Diego, we were met by the friendly folks at the front desk. From the first words spoken by "Kat" until the last words from the night people as we left early early in the morning 5 days later, we were made to feel comfortable and at home. Every employee offered help and a smile and regardless of their job a good natured attitude. It was wonderful to see and spend time with my brother. Travelling is stressful on its on, but I have to say that the folks (all of them) at Best Western Plus Oceanside Palms in Oceanside, CA removed all stress for myself and family and I'd stay there in a minute if I go again. Oh yeah, breakfast every day was easy and convenient and delicious, and the endless supply of coffee helped me deal with the time difference. Thank you all so much, wish Best Western could clone your infectious good nature and hospitality and pass it around.

    Everything was great on my stay. I would suggest going out to eat rather than eating their breakfast. But, service was great and my room was comfortable and very clean. I would highly recommend this Hotel to everyone that is traveling for personal or business. You will enjoy your stay tremendously. I look forward to returning soon the Best Western.

    This was our first time traveling to California from Illinois. I am so happy we found this best western because it was gorgeous. The staff is amazing. Meagan checked us in and she was genuine and knowledgeable. The breakfast was great. Tracy was always so upbeat. This hotel is modern, and we honestly couldn't have asked for a better experience. Oh I think she was a manager, Farrah we also a delight.

    This hotel is a good value. It was clean, comfortable and the staff was very hospitable. It was close to the beach. We actually had a bit of an ocean view. There is a nice outdoor lounge area with a fire pit type of sculpture. We did not get time to enjoy it, but saw lots of other people sitting outside.

    « Great hotel close to the beach with all the amenities »

    Several factors led me to book a room here. One was because of the walkability to the beach/ocean without the beachfront price. Another was the free parking. Another was the free breakfast. And of course, the #1 rating on Trip Advisor in Oceanside. I asked for a room on the third floor facing the south west in order to get a view of the ocean when I booked the room. They were able to accommodate my request and we ended up getting the second to last room at the west end of the third floor. It had a pretty view and it was quiet because there is no elevator at that end of the hotel. We were able to walk to the beach and the pier. We're always thankful for free breakfast but it was the same every morning. Tasted great but it could be improved by having more variety. This is a very nice hotel that has been beautifully updated. The people at the front desk were also nice. We really enjoyed our stay in lovely, little Oceanside. Where you decide to stay plays a major part in that. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

    « Always my preference for staying in the area! »

    I've stayed at this hotel several times while in the San Diego area for work.

    This a real non smoking hotel. First impression was very pleasant. Well kept, clean, elegant and very close to restaurants and shops. The staff very professional and polite. They offer full breakfast from 6-10 during the weekend and 6-9 during the week. Very convenient, specially if you have kids. The room 225 was very clean. No wierd smells. It was perfect for a couple. The only thing that it may be an issue for some guests is the fact of the bathroom door not having a lock. It didn't matter to us, but it may be a privacy issue for others. I think that's something management should take in consideration. Beside that I really like this hotel and I will definitely keep it as one of my first options for my next trip.

    We truly enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus. We had the room with a kitchen area and that gave us the extra room that we needed. The Bathroom had a fixture on the wall that allowed everyone to have a place to put their own cosmetics. What a great feature. The breakfast was more than anyone expected and had combinations that I haven't seen at other resorts. Thanks for the great and convenient vacation!

    Great stay, marred by guests next door to us who were very, very loud. Once you've heard country music played loudly at 3 am it kinda makes you hate the genre! But kudos to the night manager who tried his very best to get them to turn the music down and Meagan who helped us move to another room in the morning. Beds were very nice!

    « Awesome Trip! »

    This was my very first trip to California. I was there to visit relatives who lived in San Diego and Los Angeles. We decided on Oceanside as a middle point between the two locations and Best Western because we are familiar with price and amenities. We were able to get a hotel package that included a car with our lodging. I was more than satisfied with our accommodations. The room was large enough for the two of us, me and hubby. I love the fact that the bathroom was a completely separate room, not with an exposed wash area. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable of the area. They greeted us each time we left to give us directions or suggestions to help make our stay more enjoyable. We ate breakfast there about half of the time of our stay. There was a large selection of hot and cold foods. However, my husband and I are on a strict heart smart diet, so the addition of turkey bacon/sausage or egg substitutes would have been great! But we made do with the oatmeal and waffle maker as well as the other things to round out our meal. There was also treats available periodically; a popcorn wagon or cookies baked there on site. The cleaning staff was friendly and efficient. Our room was always taken care of. The only negative thing that we both agreed on, was there was not enough bright lighting in our room for us. There was no overhead light at all and the bulbs in the table/wall or floor lamps were not bright enough. I would return to this hotel if I was in the area and definitely recommend to others.

    I'd been to this hotel once before, and returned because it had been such a good experience the first time; wasn't disappointed! Breakfast could be a bit better, but still better than most.

    The website indicated that hotel was one blocks from ocean, not true, it was more like 4 blocks away- the location of the hotel is on a busy street and noise could be heard if room window was open- Other than the breakfast that was sub-standard and the poor beds, they were uncomfortable-the people that work in the hotel were excellent in customer service, we were well attended and everyone was very friendly, that is always a plus!

    « Convenient one night stay »

    The BW Plus is located in walking distance to the town center and (a bit further away) pier and marina. So you can leave the car there and don't have to worry for parking fees or having a drink for dinner. The lobby is welcoming and the rooms are new and convenient. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Although the hotel is rather close to a freeway, I did not hear any noise from it. There was a slight smell in the room, which I think was carpet cleaner. But the air condition worked well ventilating fresh air into the room, so that this was gone quickly. The Wifi was a bit shaky in my room. The only really annoying thing was, that after the (one night) stay I got four identical e-mails asking me to take the customer survey and they also signed me up for Best Western newsletter. I cannot remember to having agreed to this (maybe it was hidden on the sign in form). Since they send me the newsletter from their German branch, this probably violates German privacy laws.

    « Wonderful stay with super friendly employees »

    First off, the breakfast choices are wonderful with eggs, sausage, waffles, fruit, oatmeal with a variety of toppings (even chocolate chips, much to my kids delight), muffins, hot chocolate or coffee with half and half and vanilla creamers. The people in charge of breakfast were the friendliest we've encountered. The pool was nice, the hot tub very soothing, and the beds and pillows very comfortable. Short run or walk to an awesome beach if you don't want to use their exercise room, free cookies and they were even serving pizza one night! The only negative I encountered were no locks on the bathroom door so our kids intruded a few times. We would stay here again! :-) Great job everyone!

Hot chocolate and coffee is available all throughout the day, with free pizza and/or cookies in the evenings. The ocean is just a few blocks away and it makes the vacation so easy. Located right near a freeway entrance, all activities were minimal driving time. I would recommend this to everyone!

    « Excellent Value, clean newly renovated hotel. »

    We stayed here for 4 nights so that we can go and visit LEGOLAND, San Diego Zoo and Sea world. The manager and staff there were all friendly and kind and every staff had a smile on their face. The frond desk clerk was very kind and he had recommended different restaurants and activities to attend during our stay. He had also given our kids some beach balls to play on the beach. I apologized for not knowing the name. He was a tall, think gentleman with a mustache that really liked Thai food. The room was large enough to fit our family of 5 and the location is walking distance to the beach. Our room had a glimpse of the ocean as well. Breakfast was excellent as it includes patties, sausages, waffle maker, cereal, juice and coffee. The breakfast staff was constantly filling the trays even after the breakfast time. There was an issue mid way during our stay, however, the management solved the situation immediately. We appreciated his sincere apologies even though it was out of his control, however, he rectified the situation without hesitation. our kids loved the heated, outdoor pool and Jacuzzi. There was a nice fire pit during the cooler evenings to sit around and talk. The hotel is very welcoming upon entering. We checked out at 2:30 am to avoid the LA traffic and Ashley was very kind and gave our sleepy head kids a grab and go bag for breakfast. Thank-you Ashley!!! There is free parking and the Wi-Fi is free as well. The price we paid was reasonable and we will definitely consider stay here on our next visit to Oceanside.

    After a long drive, the check in person was awesome. My son can get super distracted with the items that are on display, and they had cookies to ease that while I checked in. Kid friendly people, kid friendly. This is a huge deal as my son is Autistic and ADHD. Attitude is everything with me as we do not go out often due to people who just do not like regular children in their space forget children with special needs. The room was awesome. Comfortable, great space, bathroom was beautiful, and you could walk to the beach. If you cannot walk parking is affordable and you might catch free parking if you are early. There are plenty of stores, gas stations, and small restaurants at a walking distance as well. If you do not want to leave they have a snack store open to buy some items.

    Very pleased. Was in Oceanside for Money and You. And decided to stay here versus the Courtyard which was right by the QLN. I made that decision based on the photos. BW Plus Palms is beautiful. Looks like it was just built and the staff is the best I've ever experienced. The room was huge with a full sized fridge, small stovetop, microwave and sink. Anything you could possibility need to cook a meal was there. There are grills by the pool. Unfortunately I didn't have time to use any of the amenities but it was nice to know they were there if I decide to visit for pleasure later. The continental breakfast was huge. Waffles with chocolate chips and other add ins. Eggs, sausage, breads... It goes on and on. The only thing I could say that wasn't 100% was the neighborhood. I wasn't afraid but one time when I came in in the early morning hours, I felt a little uncomfortable. Oh! And ask for room 239, there is a partial ocean view. Very nice to wake up to. Stay here!

    I had phone contact with two of the staff members: May and Meagan. I believe they work the front desk. They were a joy to work with. Very pleasant, happy, accommodating. They helped me work out what I needed to take care of. Sometimes people doing customer service definitely should not be doing customer service, but theses two definitely made it a pleasure to do business with Best Western even if I didn't stay there.

    The hotel is pretty nice overall but awful internet, really substandard for a place that calls itself a plus hotel. Could barely access email, let alone watch movies. I have had far better internet at much more modest places. Otherwise good room and food.

    « Home Away from Home. »

    I stay at this hotel frequently for business, so I have had the opportunity to experience the Best Western Plus Oceanside Palms day in and day out. The staff here provides cheerful service day and night. This afternoon at check in, Farah happily changed my room booking to a location in the hotel I prefer. Shortly afterwards I spilled some of the 24 hr complementary coffee in the dinning area; when i explained to the staff that I had made a mess they giggled and promptly cleaned up after me without a second thought. The rooms themselves are cozy and clean. I can always expect my room to be neat and tidy with fresh towels after I get back from work. There are plenty of vending machines with excellent variety of snacks and drinks, and there are more sections at the front desk. The gym and equipment are in great condition and always clean and stocked with towels and cold water. I hear the outdoor pool and hot tub are nice as well, though I can't say from experience. I haven't needed to use the laundry room yet, but it is nice to know it is there should I ever it need it (detergent available at the front desk for a modest price). The complimentary breakfast in the morning has excellent options, including: sausage & eggs, do it yourself waffles, cereal, several bread varieties and, yogurt and granola as well as fruit/juice and coffee. I look forward to it every morning. Oh and there is free Pizza on Monday evenings, which is a great touch. At the price point The Oceanside Palms is a steal. I would rate this four stars if not for their staff who really push this to a 5 star--they make staying here something to look forward to.

    A nice, clean motel with standard amenities. Away from the freeway, but easy access on and off. Good breakfast selections, including waffles, eggs, and sausage. Our room was a bit on the small side of standard for this type of property, but not enough to impact our stay.

    We went to visit our Marine son that was there from Japan. We enjoyed the service at the desk. Megan who was born in Japan told my son about things to do while stationed in Japan. Megan and Griselda were very helpful on things to do around the area and how to get to the beach. The beach was just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Great restaurants and shopping near by as well. The rooms were clean and accommodating. The breakfast was good and they kept the area cleaned up. I ask for bananas and the girl said they were too ripe, but she could get it for me if I wanted it. I thought that was nice to offer. Overall friendly staff.

    « Perfect location, super clean, and friendly! »

    We stayed at the Best Western Plus Oceanside Palms for three days in late January, using it a home base while running two Spartan races in Temecula. This hotel is in a great location for getting to/from Temecula, as highway 76 is literally one turn away from their parking lot, giving us about a 55 minute drive (in minimal weekend traffic) to our race site near Vail Lake. Having stayed at Best Western Plus hotels before, and enjoying them as budget-friendly yet very nice hotels, my wife and I were both impressed with the exceptionally clean facility throughout, the quick and effective approach to check-in, and the super comfortable bed. This isn't a 4 star hotel, and your expectations need to be tempered as such, but the willingness and friendliness of the staff, the condition of the room, and the overall experience will leave you very happy you picked this hotel. And if you happen to be running races that require some mud, the laundry facility was more than adequate for our needs! Located a short walk from several very good restaurant options, and about a half-mile walk from the Oceanside Pier, plus having a liquor store a 5 minute walk away, this hotel is perfectly situated for a weekend stay in this picturesque seaside town. The room, while older, was very well-maintained, the bathrooms were updated, and everything was very clean. We had asked for a quiet location, and our room was on the top floor towards the back, perfect for our stay. We could even see the surf breaking near the Pier from our window (not the greatest view over residential areas, but hey, the ocean!). The breakfast offered each morning is in a large dining area, with plenty of tables, TV, and food that is constantly refreshed. We were up and out of the building before 6:00 AM on two of our mornings, but enjoyed the breakfast on our last morning. Should we find ourselves in this area again, we wouldn't hesitate to book this hotel again.

    « Very Accommodating »

    This hotel's greatest asset is its staff and the amenities it provides in the room: coffee maker, flat screen TV, microwave, small refrigerator, extra soap, and toiletry items.

If I am in Oceanside on business again, I am staying at this hotel.

    I stayed here for two days on a family weekend trip to Sea World and LEGOLAND. When I checked in that day, I called them that I would arrive late and when I got there they were very friendly and very accomidating. The rooms and the whole hotel looks fairly new and remodeled and looked like a hotel worth more than a Best Western. Top it off, it was quite, which I like. The breakfast in the morning, could use a little help but what continental breakfast doesn't. I wish they had just a little more variety. I'm a sucker for cleanliness, so when I came back to my room, it was quite spotless. Overall, it's a cute place. Worth the money.

    Others have talked about the facility. It's a '5' in every way. I want to talk about Amazing Customer Service - in my mind, that's what sets this beautiful place apart - the people. First a big Hi-5 to Chris Walker, one of the management team at BW Palms. From our first contact with Chris he offered creative solutions and then made it happen. No surprise that Customer Service at Palms rocks with team leaders like this. The rooms were spotless and the housekeeping staff was very pleasant. The breakfast was fairly standard but served in a bright welcoming facility by a delightful hostess who helped make it a special time. I don't hand out many 5-star ratings. These guys earned it. You won't be disappointed.

    I have to say the staff, from the front desk to Izzy in the breakfast lounge were great. Pool and spa looked great but too cold for the kids. The only two complaints would be that the WiFi was not working for us. We were on the first floor two rooms from the pool. And the other would be that the lighting in the room was somewhat dark. But for one night after Lego Land it was perfect.

    We had two rooms on each side of the hotel. The rooms were clean and had everything you would need. We discovered that this was a very family friendly hotel and kids were running up and down the halls - very noisy. Breakfast was included which was nice - not fancy, but the waffle maker was a big hit with people dining. The woman checking us in at 11:55 pm was not used to the hotel system and it took a very long time and we just wanted to get to our rooms. If you have small children, this would work well for you.

    We booked two rooms via the internet with no problems. The man who checked us in was extremely friendly and helpful. We were able to check in early, which helped with our plans of spending the day walking along the ocean. The ocean is a bit of a walk from the hotel but quite doable. The rooms were very clean, came with a coffee pot, television, good reading lights, complimentary shampoo, conditioner, lotion and had a hair dryer. The breakfast room was spacious and had a good assortment of cold and hot foods. I would highly recommend this hotel if you have plans to stay in Oceanside and want relatively close access to the beach and restaurants.

    New property, still moving in couches. We had a very caring staff at check in, and even the hotel was very booked, they got us a great room with a view (limited view, but a view nonetheless) of the ocean. Breakfast was ok, probably the only drawback to staying at a BW. It's the same everywhere, some places very crowded. This occurrence they were out of yoghurt, or at least did not keep it full.

    « Great Service....Good Rooms...Good Value »

    This is located in the north side of Oceanside, near the harbor, and is well located but you will need to take a short walk to the beach and it is a 12 minute walk to the harbor area. The service is very good and friendly, the rooms are well furnished and modern. No room safe though. The breakfast is pretty basic, but adequate, there are no other facilities, it has a small selection of snacks and drinks and vending machines. The gym is small but has good equipment and a couple of tv's. The wi-fi was a little slow.

    « New hotel with great service »

    I was most impressed by the friendly and helpful service by all the staff at the front desk. This was something that I have not even experienced in some 4 or 5-star hotel chains. I can feel that they really go all out to impress upon the guests. The room is nicely decorated and the king-size bed is very comfortable. However, I find the aircon unit too close to the bed which literally blow directly onto the person who sleeps on the other end. I usually like Best Western's breakfast. But I found the cooked food especially the fried eggs too hard and dry. Not sure if this is their usual standard. Overall the hotel is great and would be hard to beat if you want to stay in Oceanside.

    « Turkey Trot Connection »

    I selected this Best Western because it was minutes away from the start of the Oceanside Turkey Trot . The location is convenient but not scenic. You can't see the ocean or any other scenic view but it is walking distance to the beach and restaurants and the trot! The hotel is lovely, offers a above average free breakfast, clean, and welcoming. At check in we were assigned to the first floor near pool. I was a little concerned but didn't want to start switching rooms as we needed to head to my daughters. We returned that evening exhusted, ready for a good nights sleep. Boy were we wrong! Our neighbor moved in at 1:00 a.m. and immediately woke us up with their shouting and door slamming. Between 1:15 and 3:30 a.m. we heard continuous noise. I called the front desk twice and the front desk person tried twice to speak with them but it did not help. She offered to move us but packing up at 3:00 in the morning did not seem like a likely alternative. At 6:00 a.m. I dressed for the trot and went to the front desk to vent. The front desk immediately knew who I was, apologized and offered a very generous solution. My horrible night was NOT the fault of the hotel and I appreciated everything they did to make right this situation. Other things I liked: fluffy towels, nicely decorated room, comfy bed, better than average breakfast and great staff.

    We stayed here near the end of October. The hotel looks nice and modern. We got in close to midnight and Sarah was very welcoming and checked us in. We had a room on the third floor with 2 Queen beds. Room is spacious with TV, microwave and nice sized mini-fridge that worked well! Free Wifi available. Bathroom was clean and decent sized too. Fitness center is on the 2nd floor at the far end of the hotel. It has 2 treadmills, elliptical and weight machine. I used the treadmills on three days during my trip. There are two TVs in the Fitness center. Outdoor pool and hot tub are outside the hotel at the far end also. As expected at the end of October, the pool water was a little on the cold side. However, we used the hot tub and it was very relaxing. Breakfast was good and had some variety including eggs, sausages, etc. One nice thing was that the coffee machine, hot water and water cooler in the breakfast room is accessible 24x7. So it was a nice way to get some beverages without leaving the hotel. Also there are a variety of teabags in case you are a tea drinker (like me). We used the self-service Laundromat on the 2nd Floor ($2 for wash and $1.50 for dryer). Front desk can provide you coins in exchange for cash. The beach is a very short drive from the hotel. We enjoyed our stay here and will stay here in the future when are back in Oceanside.

    « Superb Stay. Deserves #1 Ranking of Hotels in Oceanside »

    Very surprised by the quality of this Best Western and its people. Easily accessible off of I-5, but tucked far enough back that we did not hear any traffic noise. Our room was very nice. Had all the amenities and a very large bathroom. Extremely clean. Had a fridge and microwave in addition to normal room items. We had a little problem where the rug went into the bathroom and they sent a maintenance person up right away to fix it! Now, that's service. Speaking of service, every staff member we contacted went the extra mile to greet us and to see if we needed anything else. Breakfast was pretty darn good. Make your own waffles, scrambled eggs and sausage, roll and muffins (try the chocolate ones!), toast, bagels, fresh fruit, coffee, assorted teas, assorted juices, etc. All kept stocked by a very nice young lady (we gave her a tip). Breakfast room very large and had a nice outdoor patio. There is also a patio out front that has a gas fireplace. I read the morning paper out there (they provided free copies of the UT-San Diego and USA Today) and that was nice as there was a little chill in the air. Small but well equipped business center. Had to print of some documents for a business meeting and it really came in handy. The Wi-fi in the the hotel is probably the best I've had at any hotel. Very fast and easy to get on. Met the owner/manager and told him he should be very proud of his people and hotel. He knows how to hire the "right" people. Plenty of parking.

    Love the cleanliness and comfortable bed. Although the lotions does not smell great. Overall experience was great. Couldn't find the place right off the freeway but called and was given great directions by the staff.

    « comfortable but noisy »

    The hotel is well located with the beach and harbor a short drive away. Kids were arriving for the Jr surfing competition, so the halls were very loud in the evenings. They did quieten down by 10 pm, so guess it could have been worse. The bed was comfortable and the staff was great.

    Megan at check in was very helpful, courteous and has a wonderful personality. Jesse at check out was also very helpful, knowledgeable and a pleasure to do business with. Both are real assets to this hotel.

    « Great service and breakfast not half bad. »

    We arrived at this hotel quite late and the staff were ready and willing to give us a hearty welcome. I was very impressed by the good service and great attitude. Room are big, clean and the breakfast is very acceptable. Laundry is available and location is good for Lego Land.

    « Great deal on a nice room »

    Everything was freshly updated and clean, and it was within walking distance to the beach. Breakfast was standard; it could've used some fresh fruit besides oranges. The staff was pleasant. We were only there for one night, so we didn't get to use many of the other amenities, but I'd stay here again!

    This is a very nice Best Western. rooms are big, modern and spacious. Breakfast was good, location is good. Relatively quiet. This hotel IS located in a "hit and miss" area, but only a few blocks to the trail to the beach and all the shops and restaurants. Easy access off the Freeway, but couldn't hear it from the room. As far as 2.5 star hotels go, this is as good as I've found.

    « Our fourth stay and still loved it »

    We booked a kitchenette as we had our two grandsons with us. Nice and big room. Perfectly clean. Self serve laundry across the hall. Nice big pool and warm jacuzzi. Breakfast was great and there was additional seating area outside. Warm fire pit also on outside in the front. Nice lobby area, too. Highly recommended. The staff is kind and helpful. Great location. Close to beach and nice downtown Oceanside. Lots of restaurants in walking distance for lunch and dinner. Movie theaters, too are close by. Great hotel.

    My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Plus in Oceanside. We were very pleased with out stay. The staff was exceptional. At check-in Jeannie and Megan were very welcoming and friendly. They gave us great informative about the area. We were in town for a cycling event. The room was well decorated and comfortable. The rooms were a little small but they were set up very efficiently. The breakfast was very good and had a good selection. We will stay here again. Located in a great spot. Close to the beach and restaurants.

    No issues at all at the Oceanside Hotel unlike the bad experience I had at the Palm springs Best western with the employee at the front counter. The Oceanside palms hotel is within walking distance of beach and all restaurants. Staff was great and had a lot of information on where to eat and drink. Beaches are some of the best in California.and all the locals were very nice when asking directions or whatever..

    « Great Value - Premium Feel »

    Really enjoyed the look and feel of this hotel. Very high quality. The hotels next door are cheap motels. The Best Western is the premier choice. It's a 10 minute walk to the beach and Oceanside Pier. The employees here are especially nice and accommodating. Rooms are small but about what you'd expect at most hotels. Clean with modern décor (albeit a bit dark). Plenty of parking. You won't be disappointed.

    « What More Could Anyone Ask for in a Hotel?? »

    Extremely clean property with terrific front desk employees, including one manager who offered to carry my cooler to the car and another manager who tried to stuff me with warm chocolate chip cookies. Beautifully decorated room with plenty of towels in the bathroom, ample free parking, self serve luggage carts, close to Oceanside Pier and a very good free breakfast in the morning. Pool, fitness center, laundry services and computer in the lobby. The nicest Best Western I have ever stayed out. Worth every dime!

    Selected Oceanside Palms after reading other reviews and was very pleased with the choice. Convenient location. Staff friendly and helpful. Appreciated time and money savings provided by free breakfast. Also nice having coffee available at all times and a convenient laundromat in hotel. Jesse at desk recommended the Thursday evening downtown market event which we greatly enjoyed.

    « Good stay »

    This is a good hotel. I am very picky about hotels, but thus one met my standards. Their Wifi did NOT work on our room which was VERY annoying, but the rest of the stay was good. It is a really nice location to the beach and downtown life. It was close to restaurants and good dining. The rooms are kind of small, but well kept.

    During a very stressful and sad time of family coming together to have a memorial for our brother, the Best Western Oceanside Palms met our every need and more! The breakfasts were full and complete. The patio was a great spot for us native Californians to have breakfast in the morning. All the staff was friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend this hotel

    « Very Nice Stay »

    The hotel was very nice and reasonably priced. I was able to walk to the harbor and enjoy the restaurants on the water. You could walk to the beach, but we had a lot of towels and such so decided to drive. The breakfast was really fantastic - much more than I had expected. It had everything you would have asked for at a restaurant...and it was free!! Bacon, sausage, eggs, make your own waffles, pancakes, donuts, yogurt, cereals, juices, milk, coffee, cocoa - on and on. We thought it would be just a continental breakfast. The breakfast room was very nice also. The beds were comfortable and the front desk was helpful.
