... stopping to sign autographs on their way in. We were not close enough to get autographs, but we saw lots of players, including Jason Witten, Sean Lee, Cole Beasley, Dez Bryant, and some of the players we didn’t know as they were new and/or trying out, etc. Then the kids played at the Cowboys “Kid Zone” which included moon bounces and the like, along with other kids decked out from head to toe in Cowboys gear. It was very cool being ...

The sea lions seemed quite comfortable lounging on their pier and kayakers nearby didn't seem to bother them in the least.

Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach Hotel & Resort Oxnard
My family needed a quick getaway before school started back. Oxnard is about 50 miles from our home. I found the hotel on web but I wan't too sure.
Ocean front, lots of kids, soon to be refurbished
We just spend a few days at Mandalay Beach Resort. Only two negatives: It is in need of new paint, carpet and furniture. And we are told it is all arriving this Fall. There were lots of kids -- they totally dominate the pool. Too many for my liking but my wife enjoys seeing them running around.
Other than that it is an excellent hotel. The rooms are plenty big with two bathrooms. Staff was great. Location is perfect. We will be going back for sure.
True Ocean Front
We love this hotel! We've stayed here several times and we've always had a great experience. The rooms are big, the grounds are beautiful and best of all it's right on the beach!
This is an excellent choice for a family with kids. It's location ON the beach is a wonderful , as there aren't many choices in this price category that provide an ocean view. Also, because this is an Embassy Suites hotel, all rooms are obviously suites and space goes a long way. In addition, the free made-to-order breakfast really cuts down on costs (I HATE paying $40 for breakfast at a coffee shop). The hotel seems to be a favorite with foreigners (Germans and Japanese when we were there), and since we like meeting people it's a bonus. It's 20 minutes from the Santa Barbara Zoo.
Not worth the money
This hotel is definitely not worth the prices they charge. My husband and I stayed there for two nights and would think long and hard about ever going back. The problems began as we tried to check in (with the appropriate paperwork showing our reservation) and were told that we had cancelled our reservation. We assured the clerk this was not the case, but he insisted we did; however, he told us he would find us another room. Gee, thanks! The room we were given had someone's shoes and glasses left there. Good start! The room was comfortable, so we had a good night's sleep, but could not get back into our room after lunch the next day as the key combination had been changed. What a nightmare!
No shoes, no shirt , no problems!
We spend 3 great days at the resort. The room, food and services were fantastic. The oceanview was and the beach was a pleasant suprise. The resort was not full in October so we got a free upgrade which made the trip even better. we will go back for sure!
The room is nice with two of everything (beds, TV's, bathrooms, etc.) but if you look at each room separately, they were just average rooms and at over $133 each, quite expensive. The ocean view was very nice, the master bath was beautiful, but had a regular shower and bath. The furniture ordinary, some of the lights had burned out in the room and bathroom. The noise from the water pipes when someone in another uniit took a shower was extremly loud. At midnight it was thunderous. The refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and wet bar were a nice touch.
This Property is TOP NOTCH! !
My wife and I found this wonderful property after a horrible experience with a hotel down the street (see the review on Casa Via Mar Hotel).
Once we walked into the lobby, all of our prior bad experiences washed away. This hotel is first class all the way. The rooms are enormous.
Two rooms, two bathrooms and it appears that all of them have a wonderful view. Our room was considered to be a basic room and we still overlooked the tennis courts. The free breakfast is equivalent to any brunch that you would pay $15 per person for. The landscape and the setting on the beach are second to none in the area. We had such a wonderful experience here that my family has decided to move its next vacation to this property! Book this and you will not regret it.
This hotel is spread out in 9 buildings. Stay in building 2 and you enter your room via the maintenance yard. If you want to be close to the dumpsters, ask for a room in building 2. Not a very good arrangement for a first class hotel.
Great little hidaway in Oxnard
I had stayed at the Mandalay Beach Resort in 1996 before it was the Embassy Suites. It was such a surprise when I drove up there and saw that Oxnard really had a gem (sorry Oxnard). I didn't have a chance to go back until around 1999 when I had booked another hotel and left before check-in because it was dirty and was infested with ants. We promptly drove to Mandalay Beach Resort and paid the price (I was trying to save money) even though at the time it was $170 per night, it was well worth it. You need not even leave, everything is there. You have the private beach, bikes, jogging trail, rental carts, wonderful pool, live music, late night lounge..etc.
Can't say enough and now we want to go back. Superb service.
