Due to a prior visit a couple years ago and a great deal on a 2-room family suite (1 King, Bunk beds, 1 bath), we chose to stay at Residence Inn Mission Valley. I love staying on Hotel Circle as it is convenient to the freeway, Fashion Valley and Westfield Mission Valley malls, Sea World, etc. Residence Inn is the best hotel. The staff (front office, housekeeping, dining) was super friendly and helpful. From check-in, Bryan, evening Front Office Manager, made us feel like we were being welcomed home, not just like another hotel guest. He accommodated all of our requests and helped with directions during our 2-night stay - all with a smile and words to make us smile or laugh, always addressing me by name. The free full breakfast and evening reception were delicious; breakfast was worth getting up for. The kids loved watching holiday movies in the kids corner. The holiday decorations, especially the kid-made gingerbread houses, were a nice touch. The room was spacious for the 5 of us, though the king bed is tight in one room. Kids loved the bunk beds and 3 TVs in the room. Would have liked firmer pillows and a much quieter heater (can disturb light sleepers) in the king room. My son left his hat in gatehouse after breakfast; the hotel already had it at the front desk when we went down to find it and the General Manager was so friendly in returning it to him. Overall, great hotel, great staff, great last minute holiday trip. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Poolside rooms are quieter - northeast corner of hotel is noisier (higher car traffic due to hotel driveway and parking gate entrance)

Stayed a total of 10 nights on business. My family was arriving a few days later, so I ordered a crib for our infant. Called to verify that they would have a crib. When we arrived, we were told it's a "pack and play"... much different than a crib. They admitted they made a mistake and ordered a full size crib for us at their expense. We were on the 4th floor S-F of week 1 and someone checked in on Weds and it was like living under a herd of elephants. We told the front desk that we'd like to move the the 5th floor for our 2nd stay, and they graciously blocked the room and brought the crib up to it so everything was ready when we checked back in. Special thanks to Beverly, Dan and the entire front desk staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 5th floor, away from the elevators and not facing the pool.

We had the best experience at this Residence Inn in Mission Valley during Thanksgiving. The location is very conveniently located close to freeways. I found it on the Internet and was surprised at how nicely remodeled it was and how spacious. What a comfortable unit we stayed in. The one-bedroom suite we had was like a full one bedroom apt. with a full kitchen. They call it a kitchenette b/c it only has a stove and no oven, but it had a regular refrigerator and a huge built in microwave. The bedroom with two queens was spacious with extremely comfortable beds; and the living room had lots of seating area and nice comfortable furniture to relax on -- as well as a nice flat screen TV. We really enjoyed our holiday dinner in our unit. Oh, the breakfast the next day was great and is included in the room. One last thing -- the staff was so accomodating and helpful. They let us borrow two chairs for our dinner. Brittany at the front desk was so helpful. When we arrived, she worked to find us a unit that was clean in a quieter location. When we had a problem, the maintenance man was there in 5 minutes. This place has not only great rooms but excellent service. We're coming back next time we go to San Diego.

Room Tip: The rooms in the back are quieter and larger. We first saw one in the front and it was smaller. Also, you can park in the back and go in the back door instead of walking all the way through the pool area -- very easy to get to the units in the back when you park in back.

I was extremely pleased with this hotel. The location was extremely convenient for business and tourist attractions. The freeways were easily accessible as well. The room was very nice and quite large. It was very comfortable for stays of several days. The staff was very professional and courteous. I would stay here again.
