Quick Tip:

If possible, upgrade to an oceanfront room for unobstructed sea views.

Bottom Line

What we loved

  • Chromecast functionality was easy to use, no issues streaming content.
  • Booked a King Bed Cityscape View Deluxe, used SUA to upgrade to Grand Ocean Suite. Day of check in inquired about availability & was upgraded to an Grand Ocean Suite with Oceanfront.
  • Beach themed spacious room.
  • Good location near beach & Amtrak station. Quick walk after taking the Pacific surfliner.
  • Large full bathroom with double vanity, walk-in shower with soaking tub.
  • Provided robes & slippers were very soft & comfortable. Requested blanket, razor, toothbrush & toothpaste via Hyatt app, which were promptly delivered.
  • Lots of complimentary activities: signed up for Thursday rooftop yoga.
  • Amazing corner room with wrap-around balcony with million dollar ocean views.

What we did not like

  • Bed was not preferred comfort. Felt like cheap spring mattress with thin sheets. Made lots of noise when getting in & out of the bed.
  • Wished the windows were one way view, can look into (& vice versa) of Mission Pacific patrons' room.
  • Can hear street noise from 5th floor room.
  • Weird ticking sound coming from in room clock, which did not stop after it was unplugged.
  • Flashing light from smoke detector was bright during the night.
  • Curtains were not automatic.
  • Outdoor furniture was limited to two chairs & a small table for the large balcony. Wished a lounger was also provided.
  • Breakfast service at Piper was deshelved. The staff seemed overwhelmed and confused about roles & responsibilities.

Verdict

After seeing the Seabird while on the Pacific Surfliner to LA a few years ago, I was excited to visit and check out the city of Oceanside.

Great hotel for a relaxing beach getaway with tons of shops & local restaurants to try. We booked a King deluxe room for $359 per night (plus taxes & fees) and used a suite upgrade for the Grand Ocean Suite. Getting a complimentary upgrade to the Grand Ocean Suite Oceanfront, priced at $1,200 per night during our stay, was a treat.

Highly recommend the Seabird for a quick long weekend stay.
