OCEANSIDE, CA-Scrutiny by the state as well and a tough hotel financing environment could still trip up plans for a 400-room resort near the Oceanside Pier.

The California Coastal Commission next year is scheduled to consider Manchester Resorts’ plans for the resort, approved by the Oceanside City Council recently. But funding large hotel projects, already difficult, became nearly impossible after Sept. 11.

The Marriott and Hyatt chains have shed hundreds of jobs in recent weeks. Hotel occupancies have been down as low as 30% since the terrorist attack. Prior to the attack, Manchester received funding for a 750-room expansion of its Hyatt near the waterfront. Financing is being provided by the Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association and the New York State Teachers Retirement System.
