    « Excellent Stay »

    We came down for a soccer tournament and the price was great, the rooms were very clean!! & the breakfast options were great for the team to have a good breakfast. Eggs, sausage, potatoes, waffles, juices, milk, cereals, toast. Great value for the price and everything was close by!

    « Great Place For Amount Spent »

    The breakfast here was hands out great and worth the stay alone. They had a very friendly staff and the rooms were cleaned well during our stay. Minutes drive to Oceanside Beach area. Would stay here again for sure. Only gave it 4 stars because the ceiling is popcorn and cracking a bit and is a bit outdated.

    « Legoland Trip 2016 »

    Location was great and place was good. You are next to train tracks so be ready for the noise. Lots of places close by Starbucks and gas stations. Close to the freeway and legoland. It's a good price for what you get.

    « Pleasant Stay at a Good Price »

    Based on reviews, this seemed like the best, cleanest hotel for the price in Oceanside. It was. The hotel is not fancy, but it's clean, it's attractive, it's well-staffed. If I had a complaint, it's that the towels are thin. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was edible - they had waffles - and almond milk! - and chocolate syrup. Understand, this is not a Sofitel. Or even a Holiday Inn. But if you are looking for a clean, comfortable hotel with a nice pool at a good price, this is it. If I go back, I will stay there again.

    « Great choice »

    We were not disappointed with our decision to stay here. Our room, even though it was on the corner right next to the parking lot, was amazingly quiet -- but for the person walking around upstairs and the running of shower water through pipes. Two of three nights I had the best sleep ever in a hotel. Location was close to I-5, but interstate noise was obsolete. Breakfast was good -- the standard continental fare of dry cereals, pastries and waffles, but it was fresh and tasty. We attended a cycling event on Saturday morning and napped into early afternoon following the event. Housekeeping saw us exit our room and, to my surprise, went in and tidied it up while we were out. I'd absolutely stay here again.

    « OK for one night »

    Get a room away from the pool. For some reason, the music played loudly by the pool for the ENTIRE night. Room was average. Uncomfortable bed. Average service. Stayed one night before a cruise. Beach is close, but you have to walk a block for access.

    « First visit to oceanside »

    This property is older and I noticed upon entry that it's in need of some outside repairs and painting. Plenty of parking although parking lot is tight. Check in was easy and staff were professional. All king rooms are on the second floor and there is no elevator and only stairs at the end of the buildings...something to consider if you have alot of luggage. Room is a little outdated too. Room door needs new weather stripping to keep out drafts. Curtains are old and do not black out the room. That being said there is a nice balcony but the porch light stays on all night and you can't turn it off. Decent TV but the remotes need to be updated. Mini fridge motor is about to burn out so it makes noise often. Bed was actually comfy and there was enough pillows. Warm blankets too. Bathroom area is on the small side but it works. Ac/heater unit is hella inefficient and left the room cool all the time even though at night it was 50 out. Breakfast was not bad at all. It wasn't held in a tiny room and they had hot and cold foods. Lots of variety. Pool and spa were clean and maintained. All in all this is not a bad property at all. It's quiet and served my needs.

    « Good value »

    This hotel is not within waling distance of the beach. But we knew that going in. The rooms are very large with plenty of floor space and double sinks in the bath. If your looking for a good value with no frills this is the place. Our service was very good our room was clean and comfortable.

    « Good for the price »

    Not the newest and most up-to date Best Western you can find but it is clean, has friendly staff and is at a great location. Has everything you need, including fridge and microwave. Breakfast is good, pool is clean. I stayed here several times and will stay here again.

    « hotel of smiles »

    Great place to stay, It not to far from restaurants and gas and real close to highway so it easy in and out. Our beds was clean and comfortable. Everything was clean and smell great, staff very friendly and greet you with smiles. love the color in our rooms, just a great hotel, and plenty of smiles.

    « Perfect Hotel to stay for our trip! »

    My Husband & I are thinking about moving to Oceanside, we didn't want to stay to close to the beach because we wanted a REALISTIC feel of what it would be like to live in Oceanside. This Bestwestern Hotel was perfect for our needs, it was close to where we would like to live. We are going to stay here again soon when we come back to look at some open house!

    « More Amenities Please »

    this is a great location . More towels would help and only one bar of soap in the room if you get a 1st floor room the Patio doors Do Not open!!! I was told by the front desk that it is for SECURITY reasons. Made me wonder how safe the place was. the pool is nice.

    « Bad neighborhood »

    walked to cvs saw twelve homeless in three blocks ,drugs shopping cart life. Very aggressive, hotel acted like this is normal, Said to be carefull Noisie ,freeway adjacent Stinky sewer smells in morning Never again.....


    Excellent and attentive staff!. Very, very clean and extremely well-maintained. Wonderful breakfast. I have stayed several times and it is ALWAYS a great place to stay. Located in such a position as to have easy access to many, many attractions and amenities.

    « One of the best in San Diego! »

    From start to finish it was definitely above average quality at this seemingly humble BW location. The front desk girl was kind enough to print us out a list of places we could go to do stand-up paddle boarding (which was the main reason why we wanted to stay close to the beach). Our room was tidy and comfortable, with an easy to use AC system, which was a welcomed relief from the August heat we were dealing with. The bed was cozy too, as I fell asleep like a kitten as soon as my head hit the pillow. The star of our stay though was breakfast time. The waffle batter was especially sweet and ended up making some of the tastiest waffles I've ever had ever! Aside from that, this BW has a very extensive breakfast buffet. Breads, cereals, eggs, potatoes, meats, yogurts, juices, fresh fruits, the works! I left so full I thought I wasn't going to be able to stand up on my paddle board later. Don't judge this place by its seemingly inconvenient location by the freeway, the walls were actually decently soundproof. It turned out to be a great value, with great food, and a great team. We'll be back next time we're in the area.

    « Great experience »

    We stayed in this hotel for a day from a very tiring day at Legoland Resort and Water park. Room was clean though the bathroom shower needs work but overall our stay was a great experience. Breakfast was fulfilling.

    « Soccer weekend »

    Stayed here Labor Day weekend for a soccer tournament. Price was too high for the hotel, but understandable for the weekend. Only if the rooms were as updated as the lobby! Rooms were decent and clean, just outdated. The staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. I had some issues with my A/C and television and they were fixed right away! Breakfast was the usual hotel breakfast, nothing more. I did wish they had vanilla creamer for the coffee. They do ask for your room number in the breakfast area, which was NOT irritating in any way as some reviewers have stated. I did notice quite a few homeless in the area and possibly that is why. Maybe some have tried to come in. There was a homeless man passed out in the bushes one day. Pool and hot tub were great and the laundry facilities got used by our group. My room opened up to the freeway and I did not hear any noise at night! The location was perfect for our needs. Probably would not stay here again, although not at any fault to the hotel.

    « this more about how they could handle some of the complaints better... »

    I do stay in best western alot this year.. what make me decide to stay in best westerns is not the good reviews I see how the handle the bad reviews there were 2 recent ones that stood out..One was about the BBQ thing I dont know if you read the add clearly they said they were not gonna use it. but use it at the beach I guess it was expensive and did not want it to get it stolen. How the best western could of handle it at this location would l have offer hold it for them in a secure place until they were ready to take it to the beach.. I have had stuff like that held for me at other best western if i wasnt allowed to take it to my room but they always hold secure stuff for me.. instead of trying to kick people out...or at unless come to a things out ... the other thing I notice is the one about checking in early .. yes most rooms are not ready until 3 or 4pm but I had sitautions were I was early cause of plane flights or trains or for whatever reason... the way this bestwestern could of handle it is let the person check in but till them the room wont be ready till this time.... well the bestwestern I have stayed will let me hangout in the lobby or the pool area till the room is done and that gives me time to rest....and a lot of the time best westerns would offer me water cause it has been hot... a lot of this people are traveling from different places and there tired and just want to have a place to rest that they book of couse some might be to early offer them a something so they can at least feel like you want there servise as a customer... i have read your respones to a lot of the complaints...and there very defensive,,, here is what I would say about the BBQ hey we cant have the BBQ in the hotel rooms cause of a fire hazard I know your not gonna use it. just a hotel polices but we would be glad to hold it for you in secure area until your ready to go the beach. here is what I would say about the early check if they had reservation Yes its too early to get a rooms they are still cleaning the room..It should be ready at this time , it might be a wile but if you would like waitin in the lobby or relax by the pool area... .. here is a bottle of water . we thank you for being a best western custmer... I have seen other complaints that you can handle better.. and try no use the generic thing you guys use when you say we are compliance with the best western standard that just seems more of a cop out..try to work and understand bad situation a little better Most best western go beyond and better the situation not saying your a bad hotel just saying you couild of handle things better

    « Davis »

    Everything was good. very clean and staff was very helpful specially the front desk clerk Sarath. Breakfast was good. We would stay here again. I would recommend this Motel to all travelers to stay at and the price was right.

    « Excellent job! »

    Wonderful hotel experience, hot breakfast with eggs and sausage, beds were great for sleeping and staff was very friendly. I feel like I made a great choice with this hotel and I hope that you guys like it to! 5 mins from Legoland, half a mile from the ocean and Bucaneer Beach Park, and very centrally located. Parking lot is kinda tight, but no accidents!

    « Rude Manager »

    Don't ask for anything extra, all you get is refused and rudeness. Does't matter your age, he is just plain rude. Breakfast was very good and the rest of the help very friendly. Refused to enter my B/W Card Number because we had a gift card from B/W.

    « Great Location »

    Well, I needed to be in Oceanside CA, for two days, so I like the good ol' Best Western Inns. This location is awesome. Great lighted parking lot, clean pool, very quiet evenings, and friendly service. Another plus- right next to the 5 freeway. Rooms- super clean, floors CLEAN!!!

    « Nothing good comes from this hotel. »

    Poor hotel staff. Unpredictable things happen here. Staff takes and with holds personal belongings,calling the police on our family, being accused and thrown out with children late in the night. This all became a nightmare. We placed our Webar BBQ on our hotel patio because there were vagrants and homeless people sleeping outside near the hotel parking lot. We did not want our BBQ stolen because we were going to use the BBQ along with our Boogie boards the following day on our trip at the beach. Hotel staff gave us 30 minutes to pack and leave at 10 o clock in the evening. We were visiting Legoland for our sons 9th birthday from the Bay Area. We had a hard time finding another hotel at such a busy time of summer.

    « Bad Customer service »

    I stay here & it's pretty decent. However, I needed to check in early due to I'm traveling from lv and needed to sleep prior continuing my journey. I needed a room to sleep 8a and leave by 8p to skip all the traffic. However The hotel wouldn't allow me to check in at all until 3pm. The hotel manager was not helpful at all want to charge me 2 nights to stay in this motel for 12 hours. I do understand the policy however the manager was not accommodating at all. In fact, this manager wouldn't even give me his name. He state "I Dnt have to give you my name so what you can report me." The place would've been good place to stay but the employee is definitely rude and Dnt care about their customer at all. This place is right off the freeway so convenient and looks clean but manager is definitely failed in customer service. So I rather give me business to another hotel. If you choose to stay I hope you Dnt have a complains or problems coz it they will definitely will not accommodate your needs at all.

    « Great Value for the money! »

    For the money and location our stay was as expected. Management and staff were very professional , very curtious. Rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast daily was very good. Very impressed with management and all staff. This is not the Hilton it is Best Western. Great value for the money. Great rate for time of year and location.

    « BEST Western is appropriately named ! »

    This was a GREAT deal ! We had access to laundry facilities, we had free breakfast every morning with many choices both hot and cold, a VERY comfortable bed, the new carpet made the room very cozy, we had a desk/chair, and a separate chair/ottoman for watching tv, free HBO, a SUPER friendly staff and I mean everyone that worked there !! This is a great deal - there's NO comparison to the other BW we stayed at in a diff location earlier in the week - this one deserves a medal !!! It's even right by the highway on/off ramp. Easy access. Heavy curtains to keep the sun out until you wake. Hot tub/pool access, they even have a disabled chair to lower you into the pool ! Free computer/printer access.

    « Best Western- Oceanside Ca. »

    We were very pleased with the room and the amenities. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were happy. I would recommend this Best Western to everyone. The resturants in the area are very good also. Dave P.

    « Review »

    The staff was great but the rooms left a lot to be desired. Very outdated and low quality. It met our needs but for the price that we paid, almost $1,000 for 5 nights, I felt that the rooms should have been nicer.

    « The only place I stay when in town »

    I have stayed at this particular hotel a few times over the past 5 years and make it my only place to rest my head while in Oceanside. The staff is outstanding, the grounds clean, breakfast just right and the room cozy. They are making small changes to update the rooms but overall you can't find a better place to relax and enjoy the area. I highly recommend you give this place a try. Look forward to my next visit.

    « Overnite for our niece's wedding »

    The BW was easy to find being right off of I-5. Check in was great and we found our upper floor room to be very comfortable. We also found the breakfast to be very appealing and tasty! A great place to stay when in Oceanside.

    « Run-down, dated motel »

    We booked this via Hotwire on a last minute trip to San Diego. I was taking my kids down to Legoland, Seaworld and other San Diego attractions for several days. Apparently, the week we went was a popular week to be in San Diego because there weren't a lot of hotel rooms left. I went out to Hotwire and when they said the person who last booked through them got a Best Western, I briefly looked at the pictures on the Oceanside website and it looked okay. We've also stayed at many Best Westerns and they were good enough, so I booked it. We stayed there for 3 nights. After arriving at the hotel, I referred to it as a "dump", but to be fair, it did seem sort of clean. It's just extremely run down and dated. Our room looked like it had been decorated in the 1960's and possibly not updated since. I find that hard to believe, but the room reeked of prior cigarette smoke and I don't think smoking's been allowed in hotel rooms for quite some time. The rooms are small and when we went, it was 100 degrees out most days. We had a small AC unit in the room that was incredibly difficult to adjust. We had the unit on low and slept all three nights with freezing cold air blowing in our faces. The showers have built in shower gel and shampoo dispensers - or so I thought. In the middle of the night, because these things only happen in the middle of the night, the entire unit flipped off the wall. As I discovered in the morning, it was only mounted onto the tile walls with sticky tape. It made an incredibly loud crash as it fell into the tub, waking me up. Finally, someone else mentioned the "breakfast police". I've stayed at several Best Westerns where this has happened, but the minute you walk in the breakfast room, they hunt you down and drill you for your room number. They first asked my kids and then me. How many times do you have to ask? It's really offputting, I have to say. I guess I understand why they're doing it, but it's really annoying and sends the message that "we don't trust you". The breakfast is your standard free breakfast fare - nothing healthy whatsoever. Sugared cereals, sugared yogurts, sugared sweet roles, waffles with sugared syrup, etc.... The good? My kids liked the pool and hot tub, but to be honest, that's not a very high bar. It's not terribly close to the attractions. The one it is close to is Legoland (about 10 mins). We hit Seaworld (30 mins away), the Wild Animal Park (30 mins away) and Knott's Berry Farm (1 hour away) with our San Diego Go Card. So, don't pick this place for location. And another note on location, it's in a really sketchy area. It's right off the freeway (I-5), so you hear all the freeway noise, and right across from a mobile home park. So, you won't be taking any pictures of this place. That's about it. I wouldn't stay here again. I think the beds were clean, but there's little else to attract someone to this place.

    « Great Value »

    The Best Western Oceanside had a great location right off the freeway just a mile from the beach and three miles from the Pier. The room was fresh and clean with a comfortable bed. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was abundant, but could use real eggs and lean meat. The large gym had five cardio machines and a Nautalus machine. Very quiet relaxing stay.

    « The Breakfast Police, They're Coming To Arrest Me »

    Little, blue-collar and camo-collar Oceanside is growing up, getting gussied-up to be the new coastal darling of Southern California. Nothing quite epitomizes this transition like the Best Western Oceanside Inn. The layout of the motel proudly screams 1960s design with a central pool courtyard and balconies and patios mainly facing toward the pool. The lobby was modernized, but my room was as generic as they come. There are some other nice 1960s features in my room including a front door right under the outside stairwell (Room 142?) with a door that has to be slammed shut from the inside. By the way, the south side of the motel seemed to have an interior corridor, but the side next to the freeway just had a sidewalk and parking spaces. The interior of the room is small, functional, with two full beds, a table, two chairs, a microwave and fridge. The room was clean and the wall air conditioner (works by remote control only) kept me well-chilled, although my daughter was freezing. The carpet was worn but seemed clean. At least my bare feet didn't turn black walking across the room. The bathroom is small with one sink and a toilet that must have been salvaged from an elementary school kid's bathroom. It was tiny and low to the ground, what a PR person might call "streamlined" or "space-saver." I call it a dang small target and I am not good at long distance aiming, especially at 3 am. We used the workout room for about 20 minutes: a good multi-function weight station, a couple of stationary bikes and a treadmill. Also, there is a TV set to a music station and a stack of pool towels to dry off with as well. But the place was a sauna, with the thermostat set at 80 degrees F, and locked behind a discarded Tupperware plastic container. I think I lost 5 pounds sitting on the exercise bike before I even started pedaling. One big negative: upon check-in I was informed that the sliding door to my patio has been "bolted shut due to insurance reasons." I am not sure what that means, especially since the rooms on the second floor seemed to have full use of their balconies. Maybe not a big deal to you, but I took into account use of the patio when weighing the price of the room. Another big negative: breakfast. After that sweat-box workout, I was eager to refuel so I would not lose my beer-keg physique. The food itself was typical: eggs, meat, potatoes, cereal, pastries, fruit and waffles. What was not typical is the iron-fist control the staff place on the breakfast. Rule #1: there is a check-in list at the door. The group in front of me was turned away because not everyone from the room was at the breakfast room together. Huh?!?! Rule #2: Absolutely no food can leave the breakfast room unless it is already digesting in your stomach. Rule #3: A staff member has to make your waffles. Yes it is the same rotating waffle machine you see in every other breakfast room, but somebody makes them for you here. A nice touch? Maybe, but.... Rule #4: There were tip jars in multiple locations in the breakfast room. And while tipping is not compulsory, the message was clear: the owners must not pay their staff very well. What does it all add up to? My guess is that the management is actively discouraging vagrancy -- and there are still plenty of homeless people in Oceanside-- but I did not see any vagrant issues at the motel itself. So their tactics, heavy-handed as they are, might be working. Or maybe transients have a higher desire of freedom of movement than can be found at the Best Western Oceanside Inn.

    « Very Nice. A Good location for near attractions. »

    Overall a great experience. There is a filling breakfast bar (BTW the oatmeal is delicious). It is good for families, especially with young children, because Legoland is very close. Clean, Quiet, and smiling staff. It would be a hotel to return to.

    « On the way to Lego Land »

    Very pleasant staff... helpful and made sure my grandson and I had a comfortable room. We were very late arrivals; but they were okay with it. We referred by another BW further away as they were full; BW Oceanside Inn still had a few rooms. The breakfast room is large and the young lady working there made sure guests had what they needed; she kept things stocked; made the waffles and served the other hot items. Delightful young lady.

    « Modest property, great service! »

    We enjoyed our 2 night stay at this Best Western because of the little things the hotel employees did so well. From the friendly and helpful front desk staff, to the ultra tidy breakfast area, to the smiling meal servers, we were very impressed. We left our sliding glass patio door open to enjoy the evening breezes, and even though the freeway sounds were closer than ideal, our overall experience was very good. Sarath at the front desk was so courteous in suggesting running routes, sharing stories, and providing help when I was locked out of my room after returning from a run. The rates were very reasonable and we will definitely recommend!

    « ALWAYS a GREAT stay! »

    No matter the occasion, may it be for leisure or my home remodeling. I ALWAYS book here at the Best Western Oceanside Inn. From check-in until check-out, the front desk staff is very friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. The rooms are always comfortable and inviting, due to the efforts of their excellent housekeeping team. Of course none of this could be possible, if not for the the exceptional management overseen by Mr. Savath. He emulates hospitality at its finest. So, thank you Mr. Savath for each and every smile that greets me anytime I walk through the lobby.

    « Old and smelly »

    Staff was nice; ocean is just mins away; eating options are available; but the property is old, small and smelly. It needs a good overhaul. And the price was no bargain. The back parking lot felt seedy, hence bright parking lights burned all night, seeping through the drapes.

    « You can't go wrong »

    Great value. Very quiet which is surprising because it's located near the highway. Perfect location close to the hwy and 5 min drive to the ocean. Very clean. Nice beds, good size room and bathroom. I'll be back for sure.

    « Worst place ever!!! »

    I had prepaid my reservation , at around 10 am they called me to harass me on my reservation I said I could switch to a a king bed instead of two queen, than they later ( 2pm, check in was not until 3 pm) to "see" if I was still coming I said yes after work . At 8 pm front desk Yvette Ramiez was too busy "texting on her phone " After waiting 20 min had to ask again if I could check in , I showed my id if she looked up screen than went back texting I again asked if I can checked in she than said the locks to the rooms do not work and I would be excorted to my room, I said ok, can I check in than she did more texting took a personal phone call than said she did not have a room for me, I said it was pre paid thur Expedia , I showed her my conformation she said to contact them , so I did after 45 min I was relocated (9:30 pm) at a different hotel! ( much nicer, people and room, )

    « Adequate »

    We were part of a 17 man Race Across America team. If you are looking for a 2 star hotel then this is fine but set your expectations appropriately. You are nowhere near the ocean and the freeway with its noise is very close by. To get a good coffee you need to drive. Breakfast was reasonable.

    « Beautiful Grounds, Nice Rooms, Great Service, Great Continental Breakfast »

    We stayed there for two nights. The first thing we noticed was the well-groomed and beautiful grounds. There was plenty of parking. Staff was friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. Rooms were spacious. LOVED the balcony. Quiet neighborhood, close to beaches, camp Pendleton and shopping. Breakfast was well put together, very friendly staff and tasted great. Next visit to Oceanside we will definitely be staying there again.

    « nice place to stay »

    It is a older motel but seemed to be updated on the inside and was a very good value for the area. It doesn't have a view of the ocean or anything fancy but its close to lots of places to visit. The rooms and furnishing are nice and the bed was comfortable. The room was clean and smelled clean.

    « A Great Place to Stay in Oceanside,CA »

    Our original room odor was due to previous patrons smoking in the room. It was definitely a lingering cigarette odor. The first offer was to spray the room, which would have made it worse. We changed rooms, and the new room was perfect. The manager was polite enough to follow up and make sure that we were satisfied. He tried to justify the room odor by telling us that it was caused by renovations at the hotel. A line of crap for sure. One should just admit and acknowledge the problem and move on. The location is excellent. The customer service was excellent.

    « Basic stay »

    Hotel is under renovation so I cant give a full review.breakfast was organized and well monitored. Rooms are older and basic. If you need a place just to sleep and shower, which is what we did, this is a affordable get what you pay for hotel.

    « Wouldnt Saty Again:( »

    Took my grandson on vacation to LEGOLAND and was trying not to spend a fortune on hotels, so we chose this one for the price and close distance to LEGOLAND. The quality was certainly commiserate with the quality of the hotel.

    « UCSD »

    Excellent stay for the night. We had to pick up our daughter from UCSD next day. Great stay over and relaxed for next day. The breakfast was very convenient for our need and saved us valuable time .....

    « Pulled off the Freeway too Tired to Drive »

    We were pulling a trailer, and needed a place to get some sleep before continuing our trip. The front desk staff was helpful, and accommodating. They gave us a reasonable rate, and let us park in a large loading type area on the property. The hotel definitely needs to be renovated. That being said, I could tell that the cleaning staff went above and beyond to keep things looking as nice as possible. I would not choose this hotel if I planned a vacation in the area, but if you just need a place for night at a reasonable rate, I think most people would find it acceptable.

    « Great! »

    Excellent management and service. Good breakfast, part waitress served. Walking distance to local convenience store, eating and beach. Good pool. Staff were very friendly and helpful, room was comfortable - in fact I cannot fault it. Would definitely recommend it and stay there if in the area again.

    « Good value, comfortable beds, friendly staff. »

    Everything was fine. Clean and comfortable with friendly and helpful staff. Two items with TV and lighting did not work but both were fixed immediately. Maid service people were very helpful and friendly. Spa was great and beds were perfect. The motel was being remodeled when we stayed and we were placed in a remodeled room so I would assume that some negative reviews were before the renovation. Our family of 4 was very happy with our stay here.

    « Overcharged then lied to »

    Generally like Best Western for their affordable rates and the occassional diamond in the rough. This BW is on the older side even for BW but the real issue was getting a receipt for one amount and being charged more on my cc (so far - still working on getting a correction!)

    « Good price for a very nice hotel »

    We came from michigan and stayed at some sketchy places on our way to california, this hotel was cheaper than most other places we stayed and very nice, especially for the price. The breakfast staff was nice and so was the front desk. It is close to the beach and the rooms were clean, highly recommend

    « Not worth the price »

    This hotel is noisey, lights on side of curtains, you can't take your breakfast to room because owner says it'll make a mess yet they have room service of food, beds are full size for the price of a queen not a quality hotel.

    « look at all the yelp reviews before staying here - so sorry i didn't! »

    while the hotel was clean, the hotel manager was arrogant, rude and actually called the police on me because i told him his blow dryer was not working. he then told me i would have to pay for it since i broke it. i told him that if i was paying for it, i wanted it. he then actually called the police on me! i am a 52 year old R.N. with 2 kids who came for vacation. do yourself a favor. some people were not meant to deal with the public. he is one of them. go to the holiday inn or quality inn down the road!

    « excellent service »

    The Oceanside, Ca. Best Western has a friendly staff who provide exceptional service. I extended my stay there twice and the staff worked with me to accomplish this. They were professional and courteous, and treated me with respect.

    « Wonderful management/customer service »

    Just want to express my gratitude for the excellent customer service provided at this Best Western location. You can count on them considering your needs! Highly recommend! Great location too. Near beach, Oceanside Pier and Harbor. Thumbs up!

    « Perfect after a long day at work »

    I arrived way to late to be able to use the pool or other amenities. So just getting my head down to sleep after sorting out a few emails was all I had time for. For that the hotel is perfect. It's RIGHT next to Interstate 5 yet the traffic cannot be heard. I have driven past this hotel for years and wondered what it is like. The staff are friendly and helpful. The pool is outside but I had no time to use it (arrived at 9:15pm), which was a real shame. Awoke feeling relaxed and ready to start a new day - perfect. Will stay here again next time I am in the area but will try to get there before 6:30pm.

    the pool and jacuzzi were so clean like brand new all the staff are awesome and pleasant even the breakfast is above avereage the rooms are roomy plenty of space and right on oceanside blvd gotta love the location close to freeway easy to get around starbucks across the street great shopping close by perfect place for cali getaway

    « Convenient quiet location »

    Older motel but they keep it up. Plenty of amenities in room, good reading light, table and chairs, sink and counter separate from toilet/shower over bath. Sliding glass door out to patio. Good full breakfast in spacious room.

    « The staff was friendly and very ,very helpful. »

    I arrived too early to check in, but the woman at the front desk was very helpful when we discovered that my message for my requests was not in the computer. She also allowed me to use the facilities even though I wasn't checked in. The gentleman working the evening shift was also extremely helpful. I had requested a room close to the office and they were able to accommodate that. The room was very clean and quiet and didn't smell like cigarettes at all.. The only complaint is that there is no outdoor access from the patio door. It wasn't an issue since I do not smoke. I was pleased that the location is only a half mile from Oceanside Beach and the rates are not excessive. Although that may be because I stayed in the middle of the week. Breakfast was good and the staff there was also friendly. It was too cool to take advantage of the pool, but the jacuzzi was clean and operational and I was able to use that. All in all a very good experience.

    « Excellent location and value »

    Nice, clean, well maintained and professionally run. This facility is right along I-5 with easy access to all of the Oceanside and Carlsbad area. Breakfast is typical BW fare with a large breakfast area. Very close to the main business area in Oceanside with lots of choices for lunch and dinner as well as easy access to the beach areas, Leggo Land, etc. Good value for the price. Internet connection is quick, nice pool and workout area and a very friendly, helpful and professional staff.

    « Vacation »

    Very well pleased with facilities and staff. Room was very clean, comfortable, and did not hear any outside noises from hallways or roadsides. Breakfast was good..only thing missing was the gravy and biscuits. Would definitely recommend and have no problem staying at this hotel again. My rating...4 stars out of 5.

    « Great little get away. »

    Freeway accessible and close to Buccaneer Beach/ with Free parking and less crowds. Nice pool/spa. Pleasant rooms. Excellent service. Have stayed two times. Last year and again this year. Will go back another time this year and recommend to friends and family.

    « Moms Day overnight »

    Didn't want to do the usual(and just go home) after playing bingo in Del Mar, didn't win darn it, so we stayed at this BW. Made the reservation through HotelTonight so my rewards card wasn't accepted ??. Room was clean, nicely appointed. King bed. Small balcony. Good breakfast, but eggs are package. Could use some gravy. They do have waffles, which they make for you. During week you need to be an early riser because breakfast is over at nine am??. I don't care to be up that early if I don't need to be on a day off. Pool and hot tub. Maybe be an older hotel, but it is well maintained. No noticeable oders.

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    Good location, clean, quiet & well equipped room (great aircon, good fidge, newer flat screen hd tv and high-speed free internet. Complimentary hot breakfast, clean outdoor pool & spa, self-serve laundry facility. Helpful, friendly staff.

    « Bad smell »

    Maybe we just had bad luck staying in a ground floor room but I can definitely not recommend staying there. The air was humid and muggy and even though we set the a/c to maximum ventilation and cooling it wouldn't help. Our next idea was to open the terrace door which was locked for security reasons. Mentioning this deficiency at the front desk only lead to the advice that there are no other rooms of the same category available and being offered anything else. Besides that the room was acceptable but pretty outdated. The breakfast was very basic. I would not come back.

    « Visit to Oceanside »

    This is an older hotel but it is well maintained. The staff were friendly, the included continental breakfast was great. Free wifi worked fine. We were fortunate to have a room facing away from the freeway so noise was not a problem. Would stay there again.

    « oceanside, CA Stay »

    Hotel allowed us to check in early. This is a very old hotel, but is keep in decent shape. Uses a printed circuit board as a door key, very antiquated. Room is small, but clean. Very strict about no smoking, in fact they require a $100 deposit to ensure you don't smoke. Don't use your debit card, it takes almost a week before any deposit money goes back into your account. Free breakfast, but they dish out to you, so you can't make a pig of yourself. The waffles are very small, but good. The day we were there kids had taken over the pool, but it was chilly anyway. If I ever stay in this area again, I will try a different hotel.

    « Oceanside Visit »

    Was a decent Hotel but the noise from the freeway was insane! . I just wish the Hotel wasn't right next the freeway. Due to the noise it was very hard to sleep. The staff was very friendly and made you feel welcomed.

    « Clean room at a great price »

    This hotel has an excellent location, clean rooms, super friendly staff, great breakfast and a perfect workout room. The rooms are a bit rough (chipped paint on wood trim) but they are clean and have everything you need. The internet connection was constant and fast the entire 4 days we stayed. The staff was professional and took time to answer any questions or offer help. They even had washers and dryers which were welcome after our extended trip! We were happy we chose this hotel for our 4 day stay. We stayed one night at several other BW, some Plus but this was the best one (most comfortable) during our 4 week trip.

    « Great hotel manager who saved the day! »

    There was a mix-up with our hotel reservation and a concern that there would not be a hotel room available. The manager personally corrected the mix-up and went out of his way to take care of us and make our stay a wonderful experience. He even treated us to free Pizza! I highly recommend this hotel to everyone, thanks to the thoughtful manager and wonderful desk clerk!

    « Visiting old friends in SCA »

    Good middle-range accommodations and nice and handy location. Oceanside is a neat community and the US-101 Cafe is a must for breakfast. Our room was very satisfactory except for the toilet and thiiiin toilet tissue and hard to understand instructions for A/C-Heat unit and TV operation...otherwise, very comfortable.

    « Always love Best Westerns »

    Always stay at a Best Western. Great value for the money and always clean and friendly. The beds however are a little hard. Would like to see softer beds. But the amenities are great! I book through my AAA and get a great price. Would recommend Best Western for your next trip of pleasure or business.

    « Basic hotel »

    Check in experience was good. You only get one key per room since they have gone away from the card key type system that most hotels have...guard it with your life. Rooms were very basic. Buffet was standard fare.

    « Great in a pinch »

    Needed to stop for the night on a trip heading to Mexico. This was right off the 5 freeway so we were somewhat afraid of the noise. Check in was fast and friendly. King bedroom had a comfy bed, microwave, coffeemaker, fridge, multiple power outlets and tv. We were pleasantly surprised that we weren't bothered by any freeway noise. It was basic but had amenities we needed for the night. Good wifi too. They allowed us to park in the registration parking spot because parking was a bit tight on a Saturday night. Breakfast was from 7-10am with the usual cereal stuff but also offered sausage, eggs and waffles. Overall a great stay for a basic best western.

    « Best Location »

    The little Hotel was Perfect for us. Only 2 floors, very clean & the Staff was Very Kind & Helpful. The location made it east to get to Ocean. The Staff helped us to locate the Train Station so we could travel south, to San Diago to Old Towne & caught a Beautiful Sunset on the was back. Loved it!

    « Weekend with the kids »

    We were in Oceanside for a soccer tournament, and needed a hotel close to the complex at a reasonable rate. The hotel was within minutes of fields and the beach, so we really enjoyed a weekend with the kids. The complementary breakfast had the usual cold items, but it also included waffles, eggs, potatoes and sausage links. The beds were comfortable and the room and bathroom were clean. We would stay here again.

    « Great value motel near beaches. »

    Check-in was fast and motel staff was very friendly. Staff very helpful with directing me to a close by restaurant for good sea food. Room was clean and had enough room. Motel had pool and free breakfast with hot food. I enjoyed the work out room. Had an out door pool and hot tub. Does need updating in areas. Close to interstate 5, but noise was not bad, didn't notice it, but my room was not facing the interstate.Close to Oceanside pier and all beaches. Overall a good value-would definately stay here again. Don't be afraid to book this motel.

    Excellent value. Friendly staff. Clean, fresh ,friendly. Near by freeway, and beaches, restaurants and Lego Land Kids, Mom and Dad loved the pool and enormous swim spa. Breakfast was hot,fresh,clean, friendly, with an assortment of foods to fit anyone's appetite.

    « Best Western OceanSid, CA »

    This hotel seemed cheap for being near the beach; but you get what you pay for. Powdered eggs were horrible, extra runny... All electrical outlets almost came off the walls while unplugging chargers. Remote control was in a cardboard base stating "Clean" but had dried something on it. On the other hand it is located off freeway and is close to food and about a mile from the beach. Overall, ok for a cheap person. Not ok for a really cheap person.

    « Good Hotel and Location »

    Not bad for the price. Good location next to Freeway. Pretty much in between DT Carlsbad and Oceanside Pier. I stayed here for the Ironman 70.3 Oceanside and have to say that it's a good location for the race. I'll probably stay here again next year too. There is a Frazier Farms Market down the street that offers healthy food options for us picky Triathletes (other options is Whole foods which is a drive down the freeway). You can hop on PCH from the hotel for a some pre/post rides.


    Great hotel, great value. Clean linens and rooms, very friendly staff. Manager is customer service oriented. Location is close to beach and Legoland, beautiful views. Small property, all amenities are within reach.

    « Excellent 4-night stay! »

    Our family of 4 including 2 kids stayed here for 4 nights and we totally enjoyed our stay. The room was #122 downstairs and it was clean and comfortable. It featured a flat screen TV with HD programming including free HBO. The complimentary breakfast was very good each morning. It included scrambled eggs, sausage, country style potatoes along with freshly made waffles. Also available was regular and decaf coffee, o.j., assorted cereals, oatmeal, fresh fruit, assorted pastries and muffins. Everything was dandy. Free wifi worked fine. Location was a plus because you stay less than a 5 minute drive to Oceanside beach, Oceanside Pier, Starbucks, McDonald's, and a gas station right next door. The ladies in the breakfast area were totally awesome and helpful! Check in and check out was a breeze without any hassles. We will surely stay here again on our next trip to Oceanside. And I would recommend this hotel for sure.

    « Awesome stay overall except noisy neighbour »

    Excellent rooms, staff, breakfast, checkin process was easy.. no complaints Only issue was extremely noisy neighbour.. not sure they were drunk or what but when we checked in at 11pm or so it felt scary to kids.

    « Great hotel »

    Everything was great with one exception the shower is mixed up. The cold side gives you hot water and the hot side gives you cold water. Other then that I was extremely satisfied. We will stay here again!

    « Shower faucet not working right and..... »

    when check out, manager keep asking they couldn't find the key, we sure left it in the room, he was saying would charge $15 from us...finally the mate found it on room's floor .....2nd, shower faucet not working right, when turn on, water came out right away from the top shower faucet, not the bottom one, cold water get to you .....surprise !!!!!! glade that wasn't winter time !

    « great place to stay and good prices »

    We stayed here for a week in early March. Everything went well, no problems. Staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the breakfast ladies. We had a nice breakfast every day including the usual but they also made waffles for us and brought them to our table. We also had eggs and sausage and sometimes potatoes. Room was very nice. 2 things to mention, but not a complaint at all. There is no elevator and you do need to go outside to get to your room from the lobby. Also had nice pool and hot tub.

    « Very Clean and friendly place to stay »

    Room was clean, staff very friendly, close to beach, Pendleton. Pool was cool but hot tub felt great! Towels by pool that even felt warm! Breakfast was the same everyday but it was good. Front desk was very helpful on suggestions for places to go to eat or sight see!

    « Terrific Place to Stay for Legoland »

    This hotel is minutes away from Legoland. The staff is awesome! I'm a single mom with three children and I felt safe. We encountered a problem with our room key not working and were upgraded to a better room. The included breakfast was delicious. This place offers a great bang for your bucks!

    « Good Price »

    This Oceanside motel was right off the freeway, easy on and off. Close to restaurants and ocean. A little run down. Was given only 1 room key to share with my wife. Could not get shower to come on, needed to call maintenance, who responded fast and repaired. Sliding glass door was bolted shut, no fresh ocean breeze. First breakfast was served Luke warm eggs and sausage. Breakfast OK next 3 times.

    « Worst customer service »

    Worst customer servie. I spoke to Karen and she was very rude. I requested to speak to a manager and she told me manager was in a meeting all day and would call me back. No call yet. I also asked for corporate phone number and she said she didn't have it.

    « Best Value in the Area »

    The price we booked at couldn't be beat! We had two rooms downstairs, and a king room upstairs. All of our expectations were met. The hotel grounds are nicely kept. We had clean and quiet rooms, most of the staff were friendly and efficient, breakfasts were good and it's a convenient location. For those reading other reviews on this hotel, the rationed breakfasts get a bad rap. They serve plenty of food. I can't imagine needing to leave to eat more! The only thing I would suggest is to get a king room if you can. Most of the glass doors on the bottom floor are secured shut for safety, and there aren't any windows. If you require fresh air, be sure to get a room on the second floor, or one of the few on the first floor that allow you to open the door. I got 3 rooms here for the same price that one room would have cost in most of the 3-4 star rated hotels in the area.

    « Great overall experience »

    The agents at check-in were super friendly and offered us some great ideas for dinner. I called down to the front desk a few other times and they were more than accommodating. Our beds were comfortable, the room was clean, and the location has easy access on and off of Interstate 5. The breakfast was very pleasant, and a typical breakfast offered with hotel stay. The price for our room couldn't be beat. If we're ever in the area we would stay here again. My tip to anyone reading this would be to call down to the front desk and ask who delivers pizza in the area. The room service option is way too expensive!

    « Best Western Oceanside Inn March 2016 »

    My wife and I found the Best Western Oceanside Inn in Oceanside CA to be disappointing. Though the service was excellent, our room was not. The check in/check out clerk was professional, kind and witty. We were told our room was in an area that had just been renovated so we were looking forward to seeing our room. We liked the sliding doors. We were able to open the doors and enjoy the cool breeze. We also took advantage of being able to pull up our car for easy loading and unloading of our luggage. The bed was comfortable and had both firm and soft pillows. The breakfast area was very well kept and managed by two of the sweetest persons you will ever meet. One handled the egg, meat, and potato station while the other made waffles to order. The tables, chairs and counters were constantly being kept clean. We disliked the fact that the air conditioning would not work well. We kept reading the instructions but were unable to get it to work properly. At one point, it got to 79 degrees in our room. It was fortunate that most of the time we were in our room during the evening hours when the outside temps were pleasant. We also opened the sliding doors to allow cool air to circulate. The TV remote was not working well either. You had press the channel button so hard to change the channel that we thought we were going to break it. It was very difficult to search for a channel because there was no guide button on the remote. The channel listings listed in the Welcome Book did not match those on the TV cable system. Masking tape was left on the bathroom door knob and along the bottom of the tub. The paint in the bathroom was still sticky. The paint on the ceiling in the entry way was already peeling. Should we return to Oceanside, we will try the Best Western Plus located along the coastline also in Oceanside. We chose the Inn because it was located closer to a venue where a wedding we were invited to was being held. It might be worth the extra expense to stay at the Plus because we will never stay at the Best Western Oceanside Inn again.


    Just cannot say enough about this property. Each and every visit is the same......wonderful, caring and considerate staff; very, very clean accommodations; well kept grounds; great location; fine amenities and delicious breakfast.

    « great location »

    so close to carlsbad its just a hop to the sandy beaches at fair hotel prices close enough to San Diego to be enjoyable the ease of access from the freeway makes this a perfect stop for any southern california fun very clean nice big TVS nice pool the delivery room service is pretty cool to we had the kitchen sink pizza and were impressed with the quality and spped of service

    « Trouble checking in »

    5 rooms were made by a third party approximately 2 months prior to my Feb 1-4, 2016 with 4 other people. Upon arrival, clerk would not let us cancel a room and put it in the name of another person who replaced the one originally making the reservation. We spent 30 minutes on the phone with trying to change the room even though the original person who made the reservation stated it was ok. I had a credit card that the hotel computer would not take - after 30 minutes on the phone with the credit card company - verifying the card was good - the hotel clerk tried again and the computer all of a sudden worked! Comp breakfast meal made us go out for breakfast - only 1 serving allowed per person and the choices were nil. Never stay there again.

    « Fantastic location, great service, and wonderful staff »

    Located conveniently close to the Oceanside Pier, the beach, Legoland, and a short drive from San Diego, the Best Western Oceanside Inn offers a great stay at a reasonable price. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The continental breakfast was a welcome amenity. The motel is right off the freeway, but nights were quiet. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Kudos to Sapath and the rest of the staff for making our stay very enjoyable.

    I had a last minute stop in Oceanside and I was able to walk into this hotel, be greated with respect, given a room on my military discount with no issues or concern. The rooms were great and very neat. I loved the stay and felt like I was at home.

    « Quiet and also decent breakfast »

    The employees gave us a room on the second floor so we could get a good sleep. The breakfast had hot items. Very nice staff. Easy to get to. Unfortunately the food store next to it has been shut down. Good value for the price. Would definitely stay there again.

    « Ok motel »

    A motel-styel hotel, 2-storey buildings, just off the freeway. Ask for a room away from the freway, our room faced it, and it was a bit of a problem. Besides from that, room was quite big, had all the ameneties you should expect and was partly refurbished. About the breakfast they have the policy, that you can't take anything (besides from coffee) with you. Quite normal in my contry, but unsual in USA. Eggs are for some readons served, as well as waffles. The rest is selfservice and adequate. Pool is not heated, only the jacuzzi. Considering the price, 76$ plus taxes, I think it is good value for money, the place is clean and well managed.

    « could not sleep. »

    next to major north-south highway. behind a 24 hour gas station. the room i had was second floor less then 50 yards from gas station which was going all night. would not stay another night in this place.

    « This Time -- Again »

    It was to be expected and nothing less. Not the Ritz, but definitely not Motel 6. Typically, hotel bills at the end of stay, but TripAdvisor billed prior to stay -- not good. Attempted to book early, but attendant at hotel was not helpful and tried to charge full rate. I had to ask about AARP and AAA rates. If they offer those type of incentives why hide them and not promote them?

    « overall very nice stay »

    i was very very happy with everything ......except the complimentary breakfast, not that it was bad, but the way it was is what got me. you werent allowed to help yourself, and the portions the lady gave out were child size, not full grown man size. i ended up stopping at mcdonalds after i left breakfast at the hotel

    « It is not horrible but I really would not suggest staying there. »

    Rooms and bathrooms are not very clean. Free breakfast - BUT they have "breakfast police" counting every slice of bread you eat and practically checking your pockets to make sure you did not take an extra fruit to go. Cheap!

    « Convenient and very quiet rooms »

    Right off of the highway, this Best Western offers large rooms (we stayed in a king) with a good fridge and microwave. It was clean and comfortable and check in was very friendly. It was booked up for the nights we stayed there, but we never heard a sound from any of the surrounding rooms. One strange thing about this hotel is the breakfast. You have to check in, cannot serve yourself eggs and sausage and cannot have more than they give you, and you cannot leave the dining area with any food. No taking a quick toast and coffee back to your room at this place. There was literally a security guard at the door! So be prepared for that if you stay here. We stayed multiple nights and would stay here again.

    « Very good »

    My stay was really great with my family without any issues only thing i might be little concerned is about the highway traffic next to the hotel at times it might be very noise but it depends on the room they assign you so better ask about this, apart from that rest is really great...

    « great best western hotel - 2nd stay »

    Stayed in this hotel last year and came back, same great experience. Extremely friendly front desk, very nice lobby to sit in and do work / emails. Had one issue with sink, asked front desk, repair guy came within minutes! Very nice breakfast too. Room is clean, shower working, has a large fridge and microwave in room. One thing to keep in mind - no elevator, so might be a problem if you cant carry bag upstairs, not a problem for me.

    « Great spot »

    My family and I really enjoyed this place. It was close to Lego land and the beach. The staff was super friendly and everything seemed really clean. We would recommend this hotel for people with kids. It was too cold to swim but my kids really loved the jacuzzi. The pool looked nice. We enjoyed our stay and hope to go back someday.

    « I would stay here again »

    The hotel staff was very nice, especially those at check-in and check-out. My room was comfortable, but the bathroom lighting was rather dim. The lighting outside my sliding glass door was VERY bright, even with the blackout curtain, so be prepared to cover your eyes with a mask in order to sleep. Overall, my room was quiet, comfortable, and clean, the continental breakfast was more than adequate, and my stay was very pleasant. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

    « Not Best Western Standard »

    Door to the room was warped and you can see outside guest traffic from it. Noise level were very high from adjacent rooms. Breakfast was very controlled as how much you can eat. which was one spoon of eggs only. Eggs must be very difficult to get in Oceanside. only one power outlet and located inconveniently.

    « The whitest towels and linens ever! »

    We are giving this hotel an excellent rating because it is the best value for the money. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The grounds were immaculate. The full breakfast was served in a spacious dining room. We had a wonderful experience!!!

    « Great Place for family »

    This is great place to live specially if you are visiting LegoLand. Everything you need is in close proximity.... They offer complimentary breakfast too. The hotel staff is very gentle and rooms are super clean. Just don't misplace the room key as there are extra charges to re issue the key .....

    « Most un-family friendly Best Western. »

    Worst customer service. Don't travel here of you have children over the age of 12. They will charge you to have them in your room with you. I've been to dozens of Best Westerns, all over the country, and have never been charged to have my kids in existing bedding. Worst of all the agent said, "It's policy." Which translated into customer language means, "I don't have the authority to be human and make decisions for myself that make sense." If I could leave without being charged nights fee I would. Live and learn. I'll never book here again.

    « Good value in a convenient location »

    This is a good place to stay if you are visiting the area. It is right next to I-5, making it convenient to many interesting places to visit. It is well maintained with friendly staff and a good breakfast. The rates make it all a great value, especially when considering the location. We have stayed there before and will definitely stay there again.

    This was our first stay at Best Western Oceanside Inn..We found this location very clean : the rooms , grounds , breakfast service, public rooms, and pool area. The friendliness of the staff was outstanding , always polite and helpful. Our room was beautifully decorated ... We would give this hotel a 10 .


    This remains a wonderful place to stay, Staff is always very attentive and caring about its customers. Great food for breakfast. Nice clean rooms. I/we have stayed here now regularly and really appreciate how close it is to everything we want/need. Wonderful amenities if one can find the time to enjoy them. Great people!

    « Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer »

    We were on our way to a wedding so I booked a hotel close to I-5. I am not a fan of freeway hotels so I was skeptical. I was pleasantly surprised. My overall take on the property was that it was clean, safe, and comfortable. We were checked in by an awesome young man named Will. He was very friendly and welcoming. He even called our room to make sure everything was okay. This was a first and very thoughtful. The room was spacious and very clean. It had a comfortable bed, chair and ottoman, desk, dresser and flat screen TV. The sink was outside the toilet area which is always a plus. We had a quiet night's sleep even though we were by the freeway. The complementary breakfast was tasty. The servers were very professional. If we every have a chance to go to Oceanside again I would definitely stay here again.

    Very clean hotel, simplistic décor but room was comfortable and cozy. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was satisfying but could have been better with more variety. Overall a great experience for an affordable price. I will probably be staying here again in the future.

    « Very nice and modern hotel »

    We stayed for 1 night on our way fron Los Angeles to San Diego, and the hotel is conveniently located. The rooms are big and the complimentary breakfast was adequate, but not more and the parking is free. If you stay in Oceanside, then you must visit Bagby Beer company, both for the excellent beers and the food.

    « Overall a Quality Stay »

    The hotel was clean and comfortable, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good, with a good variety of meal options. The only problem that I experienced was that the housekeeping staff did not fully close the door after cleaning the room.

    « golf get away »

    We all had a good time. The rooms were well decorated, and very clean. Towels a little rough, & skimpy but everything else was very good. We six women were pleasantly surprised with the updated and clean rooms.

    « It was fine for a couple nights »

    This motel has a great, convenient location, right off of I-5. I was able to walk to the beach in about 25 minutes. There is a great Fresh and Easy grocery store next door. The included breakfast is a nice amenity and the staff in that room worked hard to keep tables clean and the food stocked.. I found the full size bed very uncomfortable, lumpy and soft. The room was average clean and big enough. My room was quiet enough. The ductless heat pump worked well to cool the room. The carpet was funky enough I kept my shoes on. It included a refrigerator, a microwave and coffee. My loose pocket change was taken by housekeeping every day.. that was odd but it was small change and I suppose they could have thought I was leaving a crummy tip???.. The front desk clerk was unfriendly but was quick and efficient. I'd stay here again.

    I have a mini vac with my family. Visiting San Luis Rey mission in Oceanside and the beautiful beach.they have a free breakfast the employees are friendly and helpful. Has a clean swimming pool and a gym.

    « A little dated »

    First I have to thank the desk clerk who got me checked in early. I went to a 2 o'clock wedding on a Saturday with a 3 o'clock checkin time. Bad planning on my part and kindness on the clerks part. That was the best part of the motel. It's really not a bad place, just dated and in need of a makeover. Everything worked, it was clean, and the price was not bad, it was just older looking and feeling. The room did not smell bad, just not fresh. Some of that has to do with the ocean, but it could have used some help. And if possible don't get a room by the ice maker. That's a no brainer but this one was pretty loud. There was a good continental breakfast and the in room coffee was not bad. The pool was well kept and although we didn't use it. I would have. If you go when it is very hot or humid the AC unit in our room struggled to keep up. All in all, I would go back just because of the caring clerk, but I will look for other deals in Oceanside.

    « Great place close to the ocean »

    Nice clean hotel and close to the ocean. Loved that it included breakfast. Side note for the breakfast; waffles are in a different room. Just ask the employee. We only had a one night stay but would definitely stay again. Close to the freeway too.

    « Great stay »

    Had a good stay here, the staff was friendly and very accommodating for my family. Super close to the beach. The pool and hot tub were great also. Right next to a gas station and market fresh store. For the money. It's a great stay. Clean. Would stay again.
