“Location good but filthy and worn out”
Reviewed 9 January 2011

This Hotel is located near two main Malls in San Diego, we are regular guests at Residence Inn in the US and this one was the worst we've stayed. The staff is nice but the room they gave us was really filthy, we found gum sticked in the kids room beds, the bathroom was really worn out, rugs? if your coming bring slippers and finally Breakfast is not the usual quality we've found in others Residence Inns.

Stayed in San Diego during the last torrential rains during week of christmas, but we managed to still have fun. The hotel is very nice and catered to families for sure. Great lobby and dining area, spacious for the big breakfast crowds, no fighting for tables like other mid-sized Residence Inn hotels, nice lounge/pool area. Only downside was the fitness center was being re-habbed so they provided us daily vouchers to Frog's fitness center down the street - bit of pain driving down there but super nice gym. Room was very clean and spacious, we were enjoying ourselves until the 4th night when the power went out at the hotel during the day/night---so we opted to switch to another residence inn in downtown---We stayed on points so the central Res center very accomodating in finding us another location. We would have loved to stay here the whole trip but our area (mIssion valley) was flooded and our entire side of town lost power.

I am on the road 40 weeks a year, when business takes me to San Diego I can't tell you how much I look forward to spending a few nights at this propert,y it's like going home! The front office staff is friendly and always makes a point in welcoming me back and unlike other national chains, I have no doubt they mean it when they say it.
I have noticed in my stays that the GM takes the time in the evening to attend the managers reception and meet with everyone that stops by. Nice touch!
Do yourself a favor the next time you are looking for a room in the San Diego area and make a reservation here.

My brother and I took our families to Southern, CA on vacation. This hotel was great for our families. The rooms were clean and spacious, kitchenette in each room. They have a great breakfast in the morning. The Dining area/ Common area is equipped with a kid’s corner where the little ones can eat and watch movies. When we arrived the staff hooked our kids up with sponge bob welcome bags. My kids enjoyed the pool and the hotel more than some of the area attractions. The sunny pool/courtyard equipped with BBQ and plenty of lounge chairs provided a great spot to order in pizza and swim at the pool. I will definitely stay here again.

Superb location combined with a immaculate hotel make this a great establishment. However, when you couple the outstanding hotel staff, this is a must stay for any trip to San Diego. I have stayed here many times and always been extremely satisfied.

Great job!

Room rug held together w/ duct tape. Couch cushion ripped. Towel service weak - missing towels throughout stay - when asked for additional, housekeeping did not have any???
Pool water was murky - heated that was good. Breakfast buffet needs some serious rethinking - crowd near food corner for waffles was a nightmare, finding a place to sit almost impossible especially if rained. Woken up at MIDNIGHT to move car, it was on a parking stripe-this could have been done earlier. Early check-in should NOT be offered if unable to accommodate request- after driving 8 hrs. to get there-we had to wait around for 2 more hrs. for room. Parking Fee - novel add-on next charge might be on luggage?? Have stayed at Marriott hotels many times - this one a definite disappointment..
