History Meets Modern

Originally constructed in 1888 as the town's first hardware store, the historic brick building now known as The Brick Hotel has seen many lives over the past 130+ years. In 2017, a five-year adaptive reuse restoration project began to update the old masonry building with all modern amenities and finishes, while maintaining the original brick facade and historical integrity of the building. Dotting along the exterior of the Brick, visitors can spot black squares that are mounted to the end of steel beams. These beams were installed as part of an earthquake retrofit which entailed building a modern steel structure inside of the existing brick walls. This task required hand digging underneath the brick in small sections to ensure the building wouldn't collapse, then pouring concrete footings to attach the steel to support the brick wall from earthquakes. What once was a marvel to see still standing, is now one of the sturdiest buildings in the area. In 2021, the newly renovated building will open its doors to the public once again as The Brick Hotel, a 10-room boutique hotel with Q&A Restaurant & Oyster Bar on the ground floor, rooms on the second and third floors and CocoCabana Rooftop Bar perched atop. Guests will also have access to the connecting businesses of Frankie's (cocktail lounge), Succulent Cafe (coffee concept) and Stone Tap Room (beer garden). The Brick is conveniently located in the heart of Downtown Oceanside, with the beach, pier, restaurants, shops, museums and more all within walking distance.

The Brick Hotel's Story

Built in 1888 by John Schuyler, this originally two-story building dates back to the year Oceanside was incorporated as a city. One of the oldest buildings remaining from Oceanside's founding days, the Brick was originally home to the Schuyler Hardware store, a historically significant business that enabled more development to take place in the early years helping pave way for the fantastic growth we see today. Back in its original state, the Schuyler building stood proud with its brick exterior and large over-sized ceilings. Over most of its life, the building continued to retain its prowess. Slight changes did occur, like being converted to a 3 story building by reducing the ceilings, and various businesses such as a cash grocery store that occupied the building in the 1930’s also added their own touch. It wasn’t until later that the building took on a drastically different appearance when its beautiful 100+ year old brick exterior was covered in stucco and facade making this gem all but disappear from the public’s eye. Over 50 years had passed with this special historical building hidden away and unnoticed until the building was purchased with the plan to restore the original character and give it a second life as a boutique hotel.
