Days Inn Oceanside

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very great hotel. They went above and beyond. Would recommend.

No audio on one channel and it was never resolved. I guess the libs don't want to hear FOX. No discount either for the problem.

Nice place and walking distance to the beach. Pool was clean and rooms were to.

The bed was very uncomfortable and the towels were old and dingy.

Let me tell you about my day.... I got there and was immediately punched in the face by some transient. Not a good first impression. The continental breakfast was shallow and pedantic

The room was nicely updated & very clean. I only stayed one night, just slept here. The HVAC system is located in the room and is quite loud, not really an issue in Oceanside but be aware if the weather is overly cold or hot (which it generally isn't)

Perfect, greaqt stay. Good staff. Great location. Love Oceanside.

Room are clean and huge. Furnishing fully. But, Parking space are a bit limited. Could expand for better experience.

The staff was attentive to my needs. The room was clean & comfortable. I was satisfied with the hotel in general. I'd stay there again

The hotel room was clean, and the location was great, the staff was helpful and wonderful all except for one woman who wouldn't give me.enough shampoo and conditioner for the weekend. I asked for 8 of each TOTAL and she said she can only offer me 2 of each per day. Cmon. I paid you $400+ for the room and didn't ask for housekeeping at all. There were two.people in that room and I have A LOT of hair. I was highly aggravated. I sent my fiance down to work it out the next day though, and they were very compliant. So it must have been just her.

Great place to stay, close to the seaside, room was good as usual. Recommended

it was just ok. Close to Camp Pendleton

Traveled to local wedding spot. Stayed here, great price/place for the money!

a good location near the beach & very good restaurants

Super location. I am retired military, a poker player, golfer, and a walker. Camp Pendelton gate was a 7 iron shot away and had two dandy beaches on the ocean - one very close to the southern gate, the other on the north side of post a good drive away. It was a 10 minute walk to the harbor and public beach of Oceanside. The harbor has entertainment in the evening and bonfires on the beach. Free parking available at the harbor if you did not want to walk. Oceans Eleven casino had poker 24/7 and only 3 miles away. Sidewalks abound outside the motel and if you look hard enough you can find a bicycle/walking path a half mile away. Plenty of restaurants in Oceanside. I suggest you try the Carrows restaurant for a good cheap sit down meal. Dennys which is across the street is open 24/7. By car, and depending on traffic and the day you go, LA is an hour away, downtown 1 1/2 hours. San Diego a half hour away. 2 1/2 hours away is Joshua Tree National Park. Torrey Pines golf course is 20 minutes away, a fantastic municipal course, just visiting the pro shop is worth the trip to see it. Free parking for pro shop visiting. As far as the motel itself, on site parking, outside room access, friendly staff, clean rooms, small but adequate pool with hot tub on those cool Southern California nights. The rooms had a small refrigeratior, microwave, wifi, coffee maker, hair dryer and continental breakfast which was your average cereal, fruit, muffins but adequate. The only thing hot was the toast and coffee.

The hotel was in a great location walking distance to the beach. the rooms were a little dated and the comp breakfast wasnt kept ut that great. We had a great time though would come back to this area again.

Great location. Could see the harbor and the ocean with the waves breaking from the patio at the back of the motel. There is a trail that runs from the patio / pool area down to the harbor and beach. I went for a run past the harbor and along the beach most every morning. Great way to start my day! People are out surfing at all hours... as long as there is day light.

On the third day I realized the my fresh towels weren't so fresh. Near the sink there was a towel hanging with a pubic hair on the towel. The last morning I was there I was laying in bed and saw a bug crawling across the sheet, as I lay there in bed. The hotel has access to the harbor however it is also next to a set of train tracks.

Nice little no frills hotel. Rooms were clean and the staff was professional and nice.

We were in the area to compete in the Camp Pendleton 10k Mud run. The location of the hotel was great, walking distance to Joe's Crab Shack and other places to eat. My only negative comments would be that housekeeping was very unpredictable. One morning they were knocking on the door at 9am to clean and another day we got back to the room at 2:30pm and they hadn't done the room yet. When they did clean it was clean and they were friendly. We also had a train running by at 5am daily, but that didn't bother us. I'm mentioning it, because it could bother others. I also thought the bed and pillows were very comfortable. I hated to leave the pillows behind.

Let me tell you about my day.... I got there and was immediately punched in the face by some transient. Not a good first impression. The continental breakfast was shallow and pedantic

well priced

The room was nicely updated & very clean. I only stayed one night, just slept here. The HVAC system is located in the room and is quite loud, not really an issue in Oceanside but be aware if the weather is overly cold or hot (which it generally isn't)

shampoo and conditioner

The hotel room was clean, and the location was great, the staff was helpful and wonderful all except for one woman who wouldn't give me.enough shampoo and conditioner for the weekend. I asked for 8 of each TOTAL and she said she can only offer me 2 of each per day. Cmon. I paid you $400+ for the room and didn't ask for housekeeping at all. There were two.people in that room and I have A LOT of hair. I was highly aggravated. I sent my fiance down to work it out the next day though, and they were very compliant. So it must have been just her.
