Holiday Inn: Oceanside

Recently we stayed at the Holiday Inn Oceanside. The hotel is located near Camp Pendleton and offers comfortable and inviting accommodations with easy access to the ocean as well as numerous restaurants, shops, and tourist activities in the Oceanside area.
We had a very busy day that was punctuated by a very early drive over to San Diego from Arizona, a business meeting, and then a fairly fast turn-around to attend Preview Night at San Diego Comic-Con.
Our check in was very prompt and efficient and the friendly staff went over the dining options and other amenities of the hotel which included a pool, spa, Fitness Center, Business Center, and many other features.

Our room was very clean and inviting and offered a safe and plenty of storage space. This was ideal as we kept adding to our haul each day and it was nice to be able to store our bags and not have them in the way when we returned or in the way of the very efficient cleaning staff.

The Television offered a good mix of stations and the Wi-Fi was effective for our needs. Since we were in town doing various media stories and Comic-Con coverage, we would leave early in the morning to get into town and catch the Trolley to the Convention Center. As such; we were not able to take advantage of the breakfast options offered by the hotel. They did offer coffee in the room and lobby and this was a great thing to have on the way out the door. The hotel also had a shop which allowed us to pick up some snacks for the road.

With our days and evening hours filled with panels and meetings, we often did not get back until around later in the evening. While we dined in San Diego post show on certain nights, other nights had us taking advantage of some of the locale offerings and there were a few fast food and dining options located near the hotel including one less than a block away.
The bed was very comfy and ideal after a long day of work. The staff also was very friendly as my wife realized after we checked out that she had left her jacket and a shirt in the closet. They had a key waiting for me when we arrived after turning around and we were on our way again without missing a beat.

While we wished we had more time to experience the dining option of the hotel as it would have been great to have that as an option when we returned later in the evening.

Aside from that; the clean room, friendly staff, and great location made this a locale we would love to visit again.
