Embassy Suites by Hilton Mandalay Beach Resort
Ranked #6 of 14 Hotels in Oxnard
Reviewed 6 March 2012

Check in was easy, the rooms are large. Ocean View Suites have two bathrooms, two flat screen TV’s, a balcony, living room, dinette and large bedroom. The also have a refrigerator and a microwave. These Suites are located roughly 300 to 600 feet from the ocean. In between is a large, beautiful sandy beach.
Everything was neat and clean except the balcony. The balcony was filthy. A thick coat of dirt covered everything; furniture, floor, walls and adjacent areas. It appeared that the dirt had been there quite a while.
The hotel was under renovation, but some rooms were finished. The finished rooms were very nice. The internet was not free and adjustments had to be made to the computer for email to function.
Underground parking was confusing. Your room elevator was found by a color code. This was accomplished by finding what color the building support posts were painted. The large sign on the way in did not address our color code so finding it was a challenge. After finding it I also found that it was not the nearest elevator to our room. The elevator indicated by our color code took us into a construction area. The next challenge was finding a luggage cart. The cart area was clearly marked but no cart was present at either of the elevators that we used. I finally found one in the parking lot. It looked like the previous user hauled paint on it.
They put on a Managers reception in the evening that was very nice. Free drinks were provided along with snacks. Breakfast in the morning was also free. A cook was present to prepare omelets, eggs or whatever grilled food you wanted. He did a very nice job cooking. Cereal, pastries and other foods were also available.

Room Tip: Request a room directly facing the Pacific

This is a very nice Embassy Suites.
I am sure the rates must be much higher in the peak season or if there is a seminar. I was able to get a very good rate and was upgraded to the beach view room. WOW this was beautiful. The room was larger than most Embassy rooms with nice furniture. The property is well maintained and has a lot of cool flowers and landscaping. They also have a very nice pool and hot tub, I did not get to use them but was tempted to use to hot tub even though it was chilly when I was there.
The breakfast was fair but not the best I have had at an Embassy.
They were obviously working on redoing rooms and there was a bit of construction dust to deal with but not too bad.
I will say that when someone pulled a suitcase or cart down the hall it was very loud in the room, this was the biggest negative I had.
The amenities and coffee were typical.
The water did taste a bit off but not unusual for a sea side town.
Note that there is a daily charge for parking.
I wish I had more time there, it would be a nice beach to walk on and you can see the Channel Islands on the horizon.
All in all I will return there if I get the chance.

This is a nice property on a nice stretch of beach. It has a well heated pool and 2 jacuzzis. We also used the tennis courts. The lobby area and main dining room are nice - but unlike other Embassy Suites in which i have stayed - the lobby and main dining restaurant are not used for cocktail hour and breakfast. Instead everyone is put into an awful poolside cafeteria setting for nightly Embassy Suites cocktails (with plastic glasses and poor selections). We just skipped it. Breakfast was OK but not great - partly because the atmosphere in the Pool cafeteria was so bad. The rooms were nice and clean. The balcony was nice with sea view. The staff were well-trained. Parking is $15/night extra. The area is isolated and all the restaurants in the area are very fast-food like or horribly unhealthy American style.

I'm an Embassy Suites fan anyway, but this property is particularly nice being right on the beach. They have been renovating and my building (#2) was just recently re-opened. I had a partial beach view (meaning, go out on the balcony, and look sideways) but it was quite nice. Channel Islands Harbor is a short walk/drive away (walk if the weather is nice). The happy hour was a tad disappointing, with some minimal snacks offered in the Surf Room - basically stuff one could buy at Costco - but the mixed drink specials each night were good and the wine fine. My only actual quibble was that they have signs in the room saying to hang up your towel if you're ok with reusing it, leave it on the floor if you want it replaced; I was there a week and kept hanging up my towel, and every day they replaced it anyway.

Room Tip: Worth it to get the ocean view, I think.

Thank you so much for staying with us during your visit to southern California’s premier beach destination Mandalay Beach. We are thrilled you enjoyed our stunning views and the beautiful Chanel Islands Harbor they certainly are a must see.

We appreciate your feedback regarding the snacks offered during our evening reception. This certainly helps us make future improvements in our selections. We can’t thank you enough for sharing with us our opportunity to improve our linen re-use efforts. This is a very important initiative and we used your comment as a training opportunity with our housekeeping team.

Thank you for your time and we look forward to serving you again soon!

Spend a little more and get a full ocean view, second or third floor. They have a great breakfast with build your own omeletts, etc. And a happy hour with FREE drinks :-). The only problem was that housekeeping did not do our room after we left a bit late. There is live music most nights in the bar/resturant area, and the food is good.

Room Tip: Try the upper floors. They do charge $15 a night for parking even if you self park

Spent two nights in a garden view room. The pro's were that the room was large, clean and even had two full bathrooms. The grounds were very nice and the locations was good. The con's were that the building we were in was in desperate need of an upgrade and was showing a lot of wear.

I always enjoy staying at Embassy Suites hotels. With the large guest rooms, separate living room area, free breakfast and complementary happy hour, what's not to like. However, the Mandalay Beach Embassy Suites is Best in Class. I have stayed in this hotel off and on for 15 years and the staff never fails to please. The lobby is an artistic masterpiece, reminiscent of the old Spanish Missions of the 19th century. With a beautiful beachfront setting, this hotel is more a resort than a hotel. It is simply the best Embassy Suites I have ever experienced. Most of the rooms have a view of the ocean, but even the courtyard rooms have a view of magnificent flora and waterfalls. There are bike and other rentals available to enjoy the beachfront atmosphere and the breakfast and happy hour offerings are some of the best I have ever experienced. This is a MUST DO when staying in the Oxnard/Port Hueneme area!
