Great stay. Room was clean and spacious. Would definitely recommend if you're visiting Camp Pendleton. It's less than a mile away. There's a nearby Denny's for breakfast. Carlsbad is nearby for malls and restaurants.

The hotel was amazing! The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious for the whole family. We especially enjoyed hanging out on the roof top deck. We even got to utilize the bikes they have available to rent. The best thing about the room was that it was only a 5 minute walk to the beach.... More

Easy check in, happy service.Very clean room with partial view. Washing machines avail to use. Lovely rooftop deck to enjoy a drink at (take your own). I didn't eat in the restaurant or use the pool or gym but they both looked decent - although not large. But fun for a post beach dip or quick on-the-road workout.

Clean, professional, with good, fresh, hot food in a very convenient location. Access to the beach and the I-5 is easy and close. Good food and nightlife within close walking distance down the hill. Will definitely come again.

The hotel staff was extremely friendly especially in the restaurant the server gave all the kiddos little plush sea lions.

The staff was very nice and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable. The room was much larger than expected, and the view was perfect. This hotel is a good value for the area, and very convenient parking.

Hotel offers a complimentary happy hour with finger foods every Tuesday, which was a welcome way to unwind! Easy 5 minute walk to the harbor for shopping or a bite... More

Great staff, the hotel is clean and the food is great! My husband and I especially enjoyed the observation deck on the rooftop. This hotel is close to the Oceanside Harbor Marina! The swimming pool and Jacuzzi are small though.
