Have you stayed at Oceanside? Here's your chance to tell other owners what it's really like. How big is the pool? How hot is the hot tub? What do you wish you had known before you left home?

My husband and I have stayed her 3 times. We love it. The first time we had 2 rooms to acomidated the 15 people in our group. We found the staff to be wonderful and they have been the same every time. It is an hour drive from Disneyland and 45 minutes from Sea World and the San Diego Zoo. The beach was fun but it is a long walk. We loved the pool and spa. We look fordward to going back again next year.

We've stayed as a family at Oceanside twice in the past 3 years. This is by far my favorite resort. The beach and harbor are within walking distance. The weather is always perfect.

The first time we stayed in Oceanside, we hit every tourist destination from Seaworld to Disneyland. By the end of the week, we were dead. We had a great time but it wasn't a relaxing vacation.

The second time, we just hung out at the beach and enjoyed the town. This was by far our best vacation. We spent hours in the ocean swimming and soaked up the rays. We went grunion hunting at midnight down on the beach. It was probably the most memorable and enjoyable vacation we've ever had. We'll be back very soon.

We visited this resort in June of 2009 and we loved it! This is before they remolded some of the place. There was many things to do and visit. If you do not want to spend all your time in Disneyland but do want to see it this would be the place. We had a studio which was not quite ideal but we made it through. I have learned I can live with a studio but will always try too book a 1 bedroom for the two of us. This is one of the best places I have visited and will be back after exploring many more.

My Family and I recently spent 4 days at Oceanside Harbor. The resort was great, staff and management are wonderful. We were in a fifth floor unit with a great ocean and harbor view. The grounds are perfect especially if you have a young child (age 8) there is plenty of room to run, play ball and explore. One thing we really liked is after a day at the beach we could stop by the out door shower and get all the sand off of us before going back to the unit. We saw the manager every day we were there. He was out and about talking to guests and making everyone feel at home. The Wyndham sales staff was also very professional and once we said no we were left alone. Oceanside is currently remodeling the interior of all the units. They are painting, replacing carpet, and all the furniture and appliances. It will be like a brand new resort when they are finished. We won't be able to go back for a couple of years but we will always look forward to staying at Oceanside.

We stayed at the Oceanside resort last weekend (August 12-14) and enjoyed ourselves. I was a bit concerned after reading some of the comments here, but was pleased by the friendliness of the staff and general amenities.

As a Southern California transplant family (we lived in the Northeast before moving to California), we are used to noise; I was again concerned after reading about the highway and train noise on this forum. We had a 3BR on the fifth floor, west side of the resort and had no problems with noise. We happen to enjoy trains so the few that went by were no problem.

We were more concerned with the issues related to use of group space; it seems we were there during perhaps a family reunion--there were many children in the jacuzzi and pool area and no one on staff bothered to step out there and 1) have them keep the yelling down and 2) ask that the jacuzzi be shared with other guests. Thank God for adult swim hours, or I doubt we would have gotten in at all.

Activities were great--enjoyed creating tye dye shirts and would have liked to have been there for the Mad Hatter activity.

We will go back, but may try a visit that goes across a mid-week to see if the pool area is a bit more open.

My family and I stayed at Oceanside the last week in June. The resort and staff are wonderful. Our 2bedrrom unit was perfect. We were on the first floow in unit 1134. The only problem was the car alarms going off in the public parking area at night. Of course this is not the responsibility of the resort. We were not bothered by freeway noise or the trains. In fact we missed seeing the trains from past visits

The pool and play area at the resort are great. My grandson loved playing on the basketball courts and disc throwing (TRON) in the lawn area. We also enjoy walking to the beach and eating at Harbor Fish and Chips. The ice cream from the ice cream parlor on the harbor is sooooo gooood It is rich and creamy, the best this side of Tillamook Or. We will be back in about 4 months

We just got back from our week stay at Oceanside. I have to say it was very nice. The unit was clean when we arrived and the staff was very friendly. The kids had a great time! So did the adults!!

There was only one thing I could complain about and it was the beds. VERY uncomfortable!!

We will be back!!

We have been Worldmark owners for over 10 years and have stayed at 10 resorts. This is my first time posting, because I feel Oceanside has gotten a bad rap.

I was very apprehensive about our stay after reading many of these posts. However, we just returned from an incredible week at Oceanside and are looking forward to being able to return in the future.

Yes, there is noise at this resort. We were nearer the freeway so we never heard the train going by in our unit but could hear traffic. It was not enough noise to disrupt our sleep. This is a more urban resort and I think if you go in expecting that you won't be too annoyed.

We are a family of four and stayed in a one bedroom unit. It was very spacious and clean. We had a great time in the pool and even played billards in the common lobby area. The new exterior paint looks great. The staff were professional, friendly and helpful (although I really dislike having to convince the sales staff we DON'T want to attend the sales presentation in order to receive our parking pass).

We went to Legoland (which is very close), SeaWorld and the Zoo while we were there. Both the Zoo and SeaWorld were about a 35 minute drive and traffic wasn't too bad. We thought this was an excellent location for visiting the San Diego area. We really enjoyed the Harbor Beach which is just a few blocks from the resort. You can walk to it or drive and pay $5 for an all day parking pass.

We are really looking forward to being able to return to this resort in the near future.

After viewing many of the reviews I'm hoping to be pleased with our unit that I've rented for my family, the Penthouse 3 bdrm upstairs. This will be our first visit and I'll be sure to fill in the review of our vacation week before Labor day!

Just got back from the Oceanside resort....what a great time. I agree with people that this is not the quietest resort but wow my family had a great time. The rooms were very clean, the staff was professional and polite, the resort grounds were well maintained, and the location is perfect to get to so many socal destinations. We will be back to Oceanside for sure!!!

Another great 10 days at Worldmark Oceanside. Stayed January 3-13, 2011 and loved it, as always. Spent more time at the condo this time and enjoyed the pool, beach and immediate area around the resort. Still love Ruby's at the end of the Oceanside Pier and watching all the surfers. The resort was clean, staff friendly, and love the new paint scheme. If you want a relaxed vacation in Southern California- give Worldmark Oceanside a try, you will most likely love it like we do. Thirty minutes to San Diego and Seaport Village, 35 minutes to the Hotel del Coronado and the great beach there, and one hour or so to Disneyland. Can't wait to go back.....

January 2011
This was our first WorldMark stay and we were pleasantly surprised. The 2-bedroom suite was clean, spacious, and nicely decorated. The elevators worked great and luggage carts were available for use.
Master bedroom had a king bed and an attached bathroom with the sink, toilet and bath in one room. The second bedroom had twin beds and the bathroom was just around the corner with the sink area separated from the bath and toilet so more than one person could use the bathroom at the same time. There were flat screen TVs in the master bedroom and the living room but none in the 2nd bedroom.
The only one thing we didn’t like was that the sheets on all the beds were crumpled. We thought that maybe they weren’t changed from the last guests (Felt uncomfortable about that!) but upon closer inspection, they were clean and maybe had been removed from the dryer cold. (Contacted Customer Care on this matter.)
We had a beautiful ocean view and the sunset was amazing as the clouds were starting to break up after a little rain. We were worried about the noise from the hwy and train but were pleased that it wasn’t noticeable.
It’s just a short walk to the beach, pier and restaurants. We took a drive to the local Indian casinos – our favorite is Valley View Casino, 33 miles away.

Overall, we loved the resort and are already planning to return!!!

Love this resort!! Stayed here for the first time on a last minute trip 3/15-3/18. After reading many of the reviews I was a little worried not knowing what to expect as far as noise or the condition of the property. I was by myself with my 2 little boys, and we had so much fun. Had a 4th floor 2 bedroom with a great view of the harbour and ocean. The unit was clean and spacious, not brand new but nice. The pool area was great, and the kids swam every day. We walked down through the harbour to the ocean every day also, and ate dinner one night at one of the restauraunts. Can't wait to come back with the rest of my family and spend some time in San Diego and at the beach when the weather is a little warmer.
Oh-there was a train that runs right in front of the property but it did not bother us at all, actually my kids loved it everytime it went past.

Just came back from Oceanside. I was not too hip about the freeway or that this was not on the beach. The area was cool to hang around and I really enjoyed the owners that hung out around the hot tub. The staff at the front desk would horse around in the evenings and act very inmature. One of the maintenance works argued with two of the front desk workers for about 10 minutes right in the main desk. I asked to speak to the manager but never hear back from them or corporate. I wanted to have a peaceful vacation as an owner I feel totally ashamed of the actions of the workers and I want others who might have observed their behavior that this is not typical behavior of world mark employees. I Hope some who is reading this cares and can't do something about this.
