Don't expect anything special, but it's a clean room, hot water and somewhat firm bed. Location is nice that it's to the freeway and everything you need is pretty close. Not much for amenities, but a larger than average fridge and a microwave. only major negative is parking.

Our stay was very comfortable. What a surprise to find a 50's style motel converted to an Inn. The room we stayed in was completely remodeled with very fancy tile. We found the directions by the check in clerk to be accurate for us to walk downhill to the harbor, marina, restaurants, and bars on our way to the beach....

This was by far the best hotel experience I had in the four months of travels. I remember one day walking my dog along the Strand and we ended up at the harbor. As a Colorado girl, I have always been fascinated by harbors and lighthouses! I was so excited! I went up the back road Monterey and took PCH...

The location of harbor inn is very convenient. We were able to walk throughout Oceanside and visit many places such as the pier and the farmers market, and all the little surf shops. The Inn is also very close to camp Pendleton, which was convenient since that is where I live and it wasn't a long trip for my boyfriend...

Had a wonderful time, hotel is in a great location, close to Camp Pendleton and Oceanside. Hotel staff were professional and courteous. The room was bigger than i expected and very clean. The continental breakfast was very good and the lobby was comfortable.

Perfect for what we needed. We weee only there at night. Decent beds. Should have do not disturb signs for the door so you dont get woke up early for housecleaning services. More of a variety for breakfast. Otherwise good.

The actual room I paid for did not look anything like the pictures on their web-site. The pictures look quite nice, but the room was so filthy and worn looking. The breakfast area is disgusting also, and the dirty tables are actually outside, in a partially enclosed area. I learned the hard way, by paying before checking out the room...

The price was reasonable but the facility sits right next to Hwy 76 and you can hear the traffic all night long. The room looked nice but the paper-thin spread had a stain on it. The blanket was also very thin. The heater was so noisy, it was hard to sleep. The room came with a fridge and microwave, iron...

Thank you for taking a moment to share your comments with us. Being located in such an ideal, central location and proximity to the beach and freeway definitely has its benefits.
