This Residence Inn has some of the nicest people, great food, clean facilities, etc. I had a reservation two doors away and the manager treated me terribly and I was fortunate that the Residence Inn was so close. I went inside and the staff immediately made me feel welcome.

The property is very well-maintained; one negative was that parking was pretty packed the week we stayed and because the different houses of hotel rooms are separated, the whole complex is spread out which can lead to a few minutes' walk to get to the breakfast or pool. Breakfast was a good variety of food, and management was conscious of our needs. We would definitely look at staying here when in San Diego in the future; short drive from downtown and the attractions.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor require you to climb up/down stairs. You might want to get a room close t...

We got a penthouse suite and it was quite comfortable. There were two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living area and a kitchen. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the service at the hotel was excellent. I was also impressed by the landscaping on the grounds. It was very attractive. We were on a family vacation and this place was central enough that nothing was more than a 15 minute drive away. I highly recommend!

Room Tip: If you've got family, definitely go for the penthouse suite!

We only stayed there one night but wish we could have stayed longer. Very clean room and great breakfast. However, the breakfast area gets packed fast and seating is limited. Will definitely stay here again when we travel back to San Diego.

During our recent vacation to Southern California, we stayed at 4 different Marriott properties. Three of them were Residence Inns. All three had the same layout, essentially the same price and the same amenities. There others were nice, but the Residence Inn on Kearny Mesa Road was definitely tops! The rooms were cleaner, the service was better and everything just seemed more cared for and caring. We would definitely stay there again!

Cons: The lot next to the hotel is where garbage trucks are parked. It stinks! And the trucks make a noise like Transformers opening and closing. It's loud, like clunk, clunk, clunk! Hopefully it won't be noisy at night.
Pros: The room is great. Lots of space and a kitchen.

We rented the two bedroom penthouse room for our trip. It was clean, very spacious and the kitchen was a real plus. We enjoyed the separate bedrooms and two bathrooms. Plenty of living space separate from the bedrooms added to our comfort. We stayed a week and found that the beaches, San Diego Zoo, Safari Park we very accessible. We used the pool and hot tub most nights after our long day trips. The breakfast had lots of options for different diet needs and the front desk staff was very helpful and willing to give us advice. The outdoor fire pit was nice to sit around at night as well. We were surprised that the hotel offerred light meals a few nights per week which were nicely done.

Room Tip: The only negative about this hotel was there was a company near our end of the hotel and when the wo...
