Clean rooms! Friendly staff! Easy reservation process! Microwave and refrig was nice! Coffee maker did not work. Nice if they would provide recycling. And ceramics mugs for coffee and tea. Wifi and channel selection on TV, worthless. Next to I-5, noisy!

We loved the location of this place. It was right off the freeway, but an easy walk to the marina and beach. The rooms are not very large, but we had plenty of space. We will be coming back here again. More

Room was spacious. Two chairs with table! I could not figure out how to call the front desk to tell them the next room's TV was too loud (and on from 5:30pm to 9am when I checked out)! Also be aware this hotel is right by the interstate, so the noise can be overwhelming if you're used to a quiet... More

It's conveniently close to the train station. Dennys and In and Out are at walking distance. Rooms are nice and spacious. I like staying here when I'm visiting Oceanside. Affordable and clean. Bring a sweater because it gets cold.

This was a spur of the moment decision to stay here. Got a great room for a great price and got upgraded to a king size bed, so decided to stay for 2 nights. Staff was helpful and friendly. Would stay here again.

Our room was close to the busy road. I am sure for many would be a bother. We decided it was just "white noise" and very consistant and thus slept really well. The bed was great.

Many TA positive reviews convinced me to book this motel....and that is what it is, a motel. Right out of the 1950's. Yes, the bed was good. Wish the breakfast had been good.....very minimal in terms of food and the seating and tables were dirty. The room was reasonably clean and equipped with coffee pot, TV, microwave, hair dryer, iron... More

Our stay was very comfortable. What a surprise to find a 50's style motel converted to an Inn. The room we stayed in was completely remodeled with very fancy tile. We found the directions by the check in clerk to be accurate for us to walk downhill to the harbor, marina, restaurants, and bars on our way to the beach.... More
