Check in was super fast and the staff was great. Liked that the location was close to a few restaurants and bars. The bedroom suite was very spacious and I see myself staying there again in the future.

Good location, breakfast included! Friendly morning staff. Did not like evening reception staff, unfriendly 2 individuals. maybe a bad day? Or probably tired.

check-in person seemed like he would rather be anywhere else in the world than there. Room was OK but windows were filthy (room 414). breakfast was OK. (good coffee)

This was the 2nd time we have stayed at this hotel. Aside from a few issues, its a great place. One of the biggest things was I got stuck in an elevator twice. First time, mx guy got me out, said its all better now. came back about an hour later, got in that same elevator again, figuring it was fixed, and yet again, Got stuck. The first time, they MX guy said we had to much stuff in there, well, the weight limit for that elevator was 2500 pounds, and myself, my 2 boys and out luggage did not add up to 2500 pounds. 2nd time was just myself and a cooler. One guy told me the elevators are really out dated. How can that be with such a nice hotel. The ONLY other thing was the toilet would randomly flush. no one on it, just flush... weird. Anyway, enough of the bad. Oh, I could recommend the breakfast to be changed up a little more. Granted is it included, but we were there for 5 nights, 4 mornings it was Eggs and sausage as he hot, 1 morning, was eggs and bacon. I think a rotation of hot AM foods should be used. So, the Good. The staff here is SO nice and helpful. The rooms are nice and clean, the pool area is really nice, plenty of parking. Its quiet, the Kitchette worked perfectly. the added things this hotel does to make your stay better is awesome. Aside from the issues with the Elevator, I have no doubt that we will be staying here again.

Beautiful and peaceful would definitely book again

Beds super hard, couch was little overused. Breakfast was very good

The hotel is great for a small family. We enjoyed the pool and the rooms were spacious and clean. The breakfast bar was fantastic and offered a variety of items to satisfy my children. The waffles were a huge hit.

Nice hotel. Great amenities. I would stay here again.

Pleasant staff, room was clean but hallways very dirty. Felt like the entire place could use a good once-over. Was bothered twice by housekeeping before the 12:00pm checkout on the day we were leaving- they came in once without knocking! I would have liked another option than tortillas with eggs on second day of stay.

Housekeeping didn't check the alarm clock SO it went off at 6am when we didn't check in until 1:30am ! THEN the phone receiver was disconnected.... they have to have a better checklist of things to do. Otherwise the management was friendly and understanding when I complained, they handled it very professionally.

Soccer tournament cancelled other hotels in area refunded people on our team while Marriott refused.

Missed not having a bar but there are close options off property.

Clean, spacious rooms. Free hot breakfast (eggs, sausage, waffles, coffee, juice). Very friendly and quick staff. I'd stay here again for sure.

Great place to stay! The only drawback is that they no longer have the managers reception thursday-sunday.

I look forward to booking a future stay at the Residence Inn by Marriott. :)

The hotel was a bit further from the ocean than expected but was a nice place overall. The rooms were clean and everything was in working order.

The room itself was nice. We had a room with separate living area. The problem with any hotel stay is/are.. anything that goes wrong. We got up at 6:00 am to shower, and could not get hot water. IT took until 10:30 am to get reliable hot water, and this may be a problem for those on a schedule. Yes, I could have taken a miserable cold shower, but NOT for $180 a night. Since we were on an overnight stay, and not on a schedule it was ok. They offered us to take a shower in another room, but do the math on that.. The hotel was not at capacity, so I am not sure why we had this problem. When I called the front desk, she didn't seem all that surprised. If you are planning on using this hotel, make sure you verify your room is not subject to this problem. We were on the 3rd floor, and of course I don't know how the place is plumbed. I called in advance to verify the bathtub size (for a couple to bathe in). Was told they are large enough for that activity, but was lied to. The bathtub is small, like most are. Complimentary Breakfast was better than most (scrambled eggs, waffles, sausage) , but no fruit available. I checked that I "would recommend" this hotel, but this assumes getting a hot shower. And, this is a better hotel for business, or family stays, and only "ok" for couple's stays.

The room and the hotel are well maintained.

Great property for families. The distance from the beach was further than anticipated, but still a short drive. Hotel staff and amenities were great.

Dear Anonymous, Thank you for choosing to stay with us here at Residence Inn Oceanside. I'm sorry to hear that you got stuck in our elevator. After being inspected from our elevator company, it appears a small spring on the door broke which is what caused the issue making the doors not respond properly, causing a domino affect, which resulted in the elevator to not work properly. Just like things break unexpectedly at home, we too have those issues from time to time, even with all the preventive maintenance/inspections we do. But I can happily report that we replaced that part and all is good now. Again, I do apologize for having to deal with the elevator and for any inconveniences it may have caused you and your family. I am happy to see that while there was a bump in your stay, you still enjoyed your time with us. Thank you again for staying with us and we look forward to hosting you and your family in the near future.

Dear Tee, Thank you for choosing to stay with us here at Residence Inn Oceanside. I'm delighted to see you enjoyed your stay, especially our location. While we are a short drive from downtown Oceanside, as you mention, we still deliver on all the amenities you would get at other hotels but without all the noise from the train or downtown congestion. Our hilltop location defiantly plays a factor in that. If you want a little downtime to lay out by the pool and soak up some of rays while enjoying the quiet you can definitely achieve that here. Thank you for your feedback and we do hope to host you again when your travels bring you back to the Oceanside area.
