The Oceanside Marina Suites are pretty removed -- from everything. They sit in the farthest corner of the marina, nearly on top of the jetty, and surround by water. This far in, what seemed almost a fishing village, I was really surprised by how nice the hotel was. The rooms were big, more like apartments or condos than hotel rooms. Everything looked very new, and very clean. The furniture looked about 20 years old, they had old box TVs, but it was well kept.

The pool overlooked the ocean, and would be great to lounge and watch boats come and go from the marina. They are currently undergoing a remodel, be sure to ask for the newer rooms. I didn't see the older ones, but I think there is a big gap quality wise.

I have to admit: I didn't know what to expect of the Oceanside Marina Suites, but I was (more than) pleasantly surprised at my experience. Oceanside carries a bit of a seedy reputation, but this hotel is situated at the end of the marina, right along the shorefront, and impressed me far beyond my expectations. First off, the manager on duty, Lana, was the friendliest and sweetest member of a hotel staff I think I've ever met. She proudly showed us the newly renovated suite with surprise and excitement, as she hadn't seen that wing since they'd renovated. The suite was wonderfully comfortable, decorated and designed just like an apartment home or townhome, with warm modern colors and little touches like a Marilyn Monroe painting, cozy fireplace, and mahogany furniture. The bedroom even had a sliding closet door and dresser, making me feel like I was staying in someone's house. There is no air-conditioning, but trust me, you won't need it: the cool ocean breeze will refresh the entire suite, even in the dead of summer. And the wide open pool deck is perfect for lounging around with a front row view of the ocean: without the salt or sand.

This is one of those hotels that I will forever compare all other hotels to. My experience at the Oceanside Marina Suites started off with an incredibly wonderful receptionist named Ryan. I think instead of working at the Marina Suites Ryan should teach classes on hotel management, and maybe classes on how to make people feel instantly at home. The rooms were also spectacular, and my favorite part about them is that you are able to stay in one of the many themed rooms. I saw a Beatles themed room with 60s-esque furniture and a three foot British guard nutcracker welcoming me to the room. Definitely ask about there other themed rooms; they are all both beautiful and fun. Most of the rooms have a superb ocean view, or a view of the marina side. The pool was luxurious and looks out to the great Pacific. I wish I could live in this hotel!

This hotel seems like it was built beautifully the first time, and has been tastefully updated regularly ever since. The giant wooden staircase on the way in is a gorgeous welcome, and the lovely view continues through the lobby and out the back to a giant pool just yards from the rocks of the shore. I was surprised to find a full kitchen and two separate bedrooms, one of which had its own private bathroom. While the kitchen was almost completely updated (the dishwasher, oven, and microwave were probably seven or eight years old), the bathrooms looked entirely overhauled. The vessel sink in the master bathroom was my favorite detail. The real winning feature of this hotel is that since it sits on a small peninsula, you can count on most rooms having an ocean or harbor view.
