My wife, 1 year old and I just got back to Maine from a 4 month stay at the Residence La Jolla.
The 2 things that stuck out the most were the consistency and the staff:
The consistency of everything being solid was very nice, for 4 months we never once parked either of our cars in the street or at the overflow lot- I like that. The breakfast was ready and ample for about 70 of my coworkers and me every morning. The dinners and (free!) beer were always solid, I like wednesday nights for grill night the most. The room was always cleaned by our perfectionist housekeeper who was as sweet as the day is long (Miraya, sorry for the spelling!) and the coffee was always hot.
The staff was really what this place is all about, the front desk staff was patient, helpful and very welcoming for the whole 4 months. They each took the time to learn the names and families of everyone there, no small feat when you travel with 70 shipyard workers that dress the same and all have the same accent. The kitchen staff was endlessly helpful and friendly, always stopping to say hi to our baby, ask how things were, and just be around in case we needed anything. The housekeeping I mentioned about, Patty and Miraya are really allstars. And the maintenance guys would be at our door in under 5 minutes (literally) for anything we came across living in a studio for 4 months.
The bad: The facility is a little dated (realistically though I'd rather have a clean older place with a great staff than a brand new place without).
