“Love this place!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Very nice, clean and spacious rooms. Great for kids and large families. Only complaints is the parking lot fills up quick and the spaces are small. Also the walls are pretty thin and as you walk down the hall you can hear what's going on in the rooms. Other than that I totally recommend staying here.

The Residence Inn by Marriott is becoming my first choice of hotel when travel. (I am Marriott Gold) And you can see why as this property is top notch. Seamless and efficient check in. The front desk had everything ready for my brother’s dog who was along for the journey. Rooms are very nice, parking is easy and getting back over to San Diego proper is very simple. I am not one for public food so I did not take part in the buffet breakfast that is offered. The restaurant looked crowded as there were hundreds of kids going to a soccer tournament. Not a complaint. Just an observation. They do have a well-stocked market that even offers beer and wine for sale. However my only complaint is that they only do happy hour on the weekdays. That’s not fair!!! Looking to return in October

Room Tip: i would ask for a room on the top floor.

All the staff members were great - no exceptions. The kids loved the breakfasts; the adults loved the $$ saved. Although we only took advantage of it one time, the complimentary light dinner and beer/wine provided on weekdays is a great idea for families on a budget.

We did have a plumbing problem on our last night, but it was handled exactly as it should have been.

All in all, we were very happy with our hotel choice, and would definitely stay there again if traveling with. children.

A group of us came for a wedding. The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. The room was stylish and comfortable. Both the bed and the sofa bed were comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms were immaculate.

I arrived on July 20, 2014 in the morning and staff (Michelle A.) went out of her way to secure me the first prepared room despite my early arrival. Throughout the week, all staff members were outstanding in service and friendliness. My schedule required early departures daily and the 0600 breakfast allowed me a great start to my day. Monday - Wednesday offered Happy Hour with truly excellent food and drink, of special note was Wednesday's burger and hot dog grilling near the pool, just like home!

I have stayed at Residence Inn's previously and will always make it a point to stay at RI's as they offer wonderful amenities, large space for the business traveler who often returns to the room very tired. Of course, this particular RI exceeded even the high standard set by all the RI's. This is a great location, convenient to the expressways and near downtown, but away from the huge crowds.

Room Tip: Second floor suites are always quieter.

This is a very nice hotel, especially for families. The staff was extremely friendly. Parking spots were only wide enough for compacts, our minivan was a tight fit. There was no parking spots left either night we stayed there. They allowed us to park in the 10 minute registration spot one night. It is within 15 minutes of downtown, the zoo or La Jolla

Love this hotel! We have stayed here several times before and always feel welcome and at home. We have stayed here as just a couple and with the grandkids. If you are looking for a central hotel to tour San Diego, this is the place. The included breakfast offers much more than the typical cereal and muffins and is great when you have little ones, and perfect before hitting the zoo, Wild Animal Park, the beach, Old Towne or Sea World. The rooms each have kitchens which can help cut down on an expensive trip.
