HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS and OFF SITE weekend activities

We are trying to re-institute an entire weekend of entertaining and educational activities, anchored by the ARS Rose Show and the Auction of Rare and Unusual Rose Plants, such as we enjoyed pre COVID and hope you will join in the fun.

We have secured a small number of rooms in a very lovely hotel directly across the street from the Rose Show/Auction venue. The Courtyard by Marriott at 3501 Seagate Way Oceanside, California, (760) 966-4945, will provide a room with king sized bed for approximately $192.00 per night or a room with two queen sized beds for approximately $ 204.00 per night. This fee includes room and all applicable taxes.

The hotel does have a small restaurant with limited hours but does not offer room service. Several other restaurants are within a quarter mile of the hotel (walking distance) and of course a much larger number are available in both downtown Oceanside and at the large shopping center at Palomar Airport Road exit off I-5 in Carlsbad.

Please make your hotel reservations as early as possible as rooms at this discounted price are unlikely to be available in the future. When making reservations for these rooms relate the associated group name is California Coastal Rose Society. These discounted rooms will be released on September 29th at 5 PM. After that time rooms may be available but NOT at the discounted rate.
