OCEANSIDE, Calif. (KGTV) -- A hotel approved for Oceanside Boulevard is frustrating many residents.

City leaders who supported the 99-room Fairfield Inn & Suite say concerns brought up about the location were addressed by staff.

They also told 10News that, once complete, the hotel will bring in more than $360,000 tax dollars per year.

Regardless, residents who live in the area say the site selected will create traffic problems. Beyond that - it will mean that their neighborhood will get noisy. 

"This location is difficult to get in and out of," one resident said. "There's no benefit to being right there."

City leaders say the location is ideal because it's close to Interstate-5.
