My boyfriend and I were searching for a good place to stay in the San Diego area that offered free parking, ocean front rooms with balconies, and either a hot tub or pool. The problem came when we started looking at prices. Many places were insanely priced and didn't even offer an ocean view let alone a beachfront property. I refused to settle and kept searching. I stumbled upon this hotel, and immediately knew it was the one. It has stellar reviews, and had everything we were looking for (and more!)

Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner of the hotel and Alexis, who worked the front desk. Alexis is AMAZING! She couldn't possibly be more helpful. She gave great advice on where to visit in the area and got us the best deals possible. All hotel employees want to go out of their way to be sure you are happy. All of the families staying in the hotel were as sweet as could be. The rooms were kept up perfectly and very clean and up to date. We had no problems whatsoever and didn't want to leave!

Parking was free and the garage was on the first floor. Couldn't be more convenient! There was a jacuzzi tub on the roof which overlooked the sunsets perfectly. We stayed in a studio and had a private balcony with a perfect view of the ocean. We felt safe at the hotel and slept with the balcony door open every night! The hotel offered free towels to use for the beach, free beach toys (boogie boards, surf boards, footballs, rackets, etc) to use, and free bike rentals.

We will most definitely be coming back to the San Diego area soon and won't even think about staying anywhere but the Southern California Beach Club!!

Where do we begin? We loved everything about the Southern California Beach Club. It offers a GREAT location--literally right on the beach! The Oceanside Pier (and Ruby's!) is within walking distance. It is absolutely beautiful!!

We stayed in a two bedroom unit with our 3 kids. It was spacious and very clean. The kitchenette had all the supplies that you could possibly need. We enjoyed having the window open at night, letting the sound of the ocean waves gently lull us to sleep! The beds were super comfortable as well.

We found that every encounter with the staff was extremely pleasant and you could tell that they all really enjoyed their job. We made use of the beach chairs, boogie boards and sand toys that were available to check out. The coffee and many flavors of Numi tea that were available in the lobby was appreciated very much.

We are looking forward to visiting this property again and again. Thank you to all of the staff that made our stay so enjoyable!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience while staying with us at the Beach Club. It sounds like you and your family had a great time. You went to one of our Teams favorite spots: Ruby's Diner. Did you know they have over 30 flavors of milk shakes to choose from...yummy.
We hope to see you soon, thank you again!!

The staff was so helpful and enthusiastic about their job and ensuring we enjoyed our staff. We only stayed one night but we encountered several staff and everyone wanted to ensure we were having a great stay and they all loved working there. We checked in with Cody. He was very helpful and checked in to make sure we were sttled. The best thing about our stay was the view from our oceanside room.

Room tip: Oceanside room. Right on the ocean.

We did a rather last minute trip, and the service was amazing and the rooms were clean and welcoming. We will definitely go back.
The resort is right on the beach, and offers use of beach chairs, towels, and other items for enjoying your time on the beach.
It is within walking distance of downtown, and just a little farter walk to the marina. The pier is right out your back door. My husband and I and 2 teens made the trip and all of us had a great vacation.

Room tip: The condos directly on the beach side offer the best views.

The Beach Club Team is so happy you were able to get away and stay with us on the beach; while taking advantage of all the wonderful activities downtown Oceanside has to offer within walking distance. We look forward to you and your family joining us again.

We made a reservation almost a year ago to celebrate our anniversary. When we checked in, a bottle of champagne,A fruit basket, variety of nuts and chocolates, chocolate chip cookies and Trader Joe's coffee awaited us in our suite. The general manager, Scott Humberstone, greeted us warmly and introduced us to his whole staff. Our room faced the ocean and was immaculate.
Our room opens up directly to the beach with a beautiful patio with a dining table and recliners. Barbecues are outside on a common deck. Our expectations have been exceeded.

Despite the rain storm, I am so glad you enjoyed your anniversary celebration. The Beach Club is, in our opinion, one of the greatest romantic beach destinations anywhere in the world. May you return for many more great times...make sure you bring your surfboard too.
