Springhill Suites by Marriott Oceanside Hotel Review

Posted on: June 16th, 2015 by Kate Hamernik


Planning on a trip to Oceanside in North County San Diego?  No doubt you will want to enjoy Ocean views and have lots of entertainment close by.  Springhill Suites by Marriott Oceanside is located just a block from the Pacific Ocean with views of the historic Oceanside Pier and the Top Gun House.


As a family of five we are always impressed by a hotel room that can comfortably fit our whole family.  The Springhill by Marriott layout was perfect.


Our room offered two queen beds as well as a sleeper sofa.  Harry and I also liked there was a work station that was separate from the main sleeping area.


While our trip was purely recreational, this would have been a wonderful hotel for a business trip as well.  We basically used our desk area for spinning and nonsense, but it would have been great for getting work done too.

Springhill Suites by Marriott Oceanside offers a FREE breakfast that got thumbs up from our group.  It is no frills – disposable plates and utensils and serve yourself, but honestly that is how we like it.  When we stayed we served ourselves eggs, bacon, yogurt, fruit, and even make your own waffles.


Yep – my gigantic bottomless pit had two plates, a bowl of oatmeal, and a cup of yogurt.  Heaven help us when he hits his teens.


 I think our favorite feature was the heated roof top pool.





The hotel is only a couple blocks from the Oceanside Pier.  Our family walked down one morning after breakfast – read all about our morning at the Oceanside Pier <—- here.


Things to keep in mind…..

* Parking is Valet only at the cost is $24 a night – there is street parking but everything close is metered.  While the hotel is a very good deal especially considering the view and location, if you are on a budget it should just be taken into consideration.


* The train tracks are right up against the hotel, we were on the beach side and we could still hear it at night time. Our kids slept through it but we both woke up a couple times.  The front desk does have ear plugs if you are a light sleeper like us.

* Smoke free hotel – yay! I love smoke free hotels – but if you enjoy that sorta habit (quit it – it is bad for you) you should probably stay somewhere else…. or you know, quit smoking.  It’s a cool hotel, it is a shame for you to miss it over a bad habit.
