Oceanside Hospitality is “Making the Grade”

The upcoming school year is quickly approaching, but the students of Oceanside won’t be the only ones graded on the quality of their work. Each year, TripAdvisor studies the accommodations, attractions and restaurants that are consistently earning great reviews from travelers and presents them with a Certificate of Excellence.

Think of the Certificate of Excellence as the yearly report card for a hospitality business. There are three subjects each must pass to get the grade:

  1. They must maintain an overall TripAdvisor rating of at least four out of five.
  2. Their TripAdvisor profile must have a minimum number of reviews.
  3. Their business has to have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.

Recipients of the Certificate of Excellence are determined solely by the travelers who have had direct experience with the business. It is their ratings and reviews that are used in this decision process, not the commercial relationship between a business and TripAdvisor.

We’re proud to say that consistently great service is a staple here in Oceanside, and our visitors want you to know it! This year 8 Oceanside lodging properties were awarded the Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor. As well as, 28 Oceanside restaurants and 8 Oceanside attractions.

Here are Oceanside’s 2016 Certificate of Excellence Recipients in lodging. Some of the best and brightest in the class!
