Pets are part of the family and we know how wonderful
it is to be able to travel with them. To better accommodate our guests who wish to bring their pets along, we have converted to a “Pet Friendly” hotel. The cost consists of
a $75 pet fee plus a $25 per pet, per day service charge. Maximum 2 pets are allowed in the suite with a
combined weight limit for pets of 50 pounds. And, you
might try out Oxnard’s brand new dog park at College
Park offering wide-open spaces and a coin-operated
doggie wash station to help you pamper your pets!

Mandalay Beach continues to enhance our property to make
your stay the best it can be. The pool deck and surrounding courtyard have undergone a complete makeover. On your
next visit, you will see the new tiling and areas that have been improved for our guests’ enjoyment. For example, we have relocated the bike rental to the front parking lot opening up additional space, and from the pool area replaced a step with
a ramp leading into the Cabana Lounge, allowing for better
access. We will keep you updated on future improvements
as we continue to upgrade our property.

There is nothing more decadent than chocolate and cheese,
and when the two are paired with wine, its pure indulgence!
