For being an older property this is a great place to stay. The room has been updated and very clean and spacious. It has everything you needed for a over-night or extended stay. The kitchen has full size appliances. The bed is extremely comfortable. Work in progress: Re-tiling of the pool. Wonderful breakfast buffet (get there early, it can get...

Unfortunately I stayed here twice once last month and again this month. Beds face the door in the studios. Rooms could have been cleanier. Hair in...

Stayed one night during campus visit of UCSD (short 10 min walk to campus). Large, well furnished room. Friendly and prompt service and overall a pretty pleasant stay. Breakfast was pretty good too, the food tasty and choice plentiful.

Our family of 5 stayed here while touring colleges in the San Diego area, this was a perfect location for us as it is literally across the road from UC San Diego. Traveling with 5 is always difficult, as there is never enough room, however that was not the case here. We had a beautiful suite with a King, a...

Just recently stayed at this Residence Inn over the Christmas weekend. The front desk staff, Norma, checked us in. She was very friendly and informative. She showed us the map of the property to point out where our room was located and informed us about their complimentary breakfast. This is parking on property for $18/day however, some street parking is...

I had a short one night stay here in one of the 2 story Exec Suites. One bedroom and full bath downstairs and another loft area with a queen bed and full bath upstairs. Very roomy!

I'm a Marriott Gold Card member and felt like I wasn't at this place. I was suppose to get an upgrade and the upgrade was the same price as the regular studio room.
