We stayed at the Residence Inn during a four day stay in San Diego. From there we were able to go whale watching, visit Sea World and Legoland, and hang out on the beach in La Jolla. Although other attractions like Balboa Park, Coronado are also pretty close we did not have time to explore those. The hotel is a...

We stayed at this hotel for only two nights, with a family of five. Three kids, two tired parents and we had so much room! We chose the two bedroom loft style- best deal. We got a king size bed with private bathroom and we had double doors that closed to give up privacy. Kids got a queen bed up...

This place really blew my mind. I've stayed at many Residence Inn's and they are usually good but this place is unique as its laid out bungalow style like your own condo with a bit of privacy. Very friendly staff and even evening social hours with food and it has a very clean and comforting vibe. I have stayed here...

I always like Residence Inn as they have a full size kitchen which is perfect for families with kids. We have stayed in this one & the one in Hotel Circle. Hotel Circle is a bit more updated & newer than this one. But this one is at least $30 per night cheaper than Hotel Circle plus no parking fee....

I stated for a month here. Place is nice and staff is warm and helpful. Megan, Carlos and others were always there to help. One drawback is that the location is not ideal if you plan to use public transport. Try and pick rooms closer to the pool and then ones on ground floor may have more noise and commotion...

The Good: The location is extremely convenient to three freeways, and it's only 10 minutes into downtown. There are no parking fees, unlike Hotel Circle or downtown.
