Recent guest reviews

Great staff, great room. Nice breakfast. Would return.

From the moment we walked in the lobby, the receptionist was very helpful and they were able to checked us in within 3 minutes. The place was nice and clean. I like that they have a heated swimming pool, so the kids were able to just jumped in the pool after a long day of activities. They even have firepit which we were able to make smores. Overall, I would recommend this place and would come back again in the future.

Full kitchen is a plus. Everything you need. Very comfortable. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Roomy. Easy parking. Not as close to family attractions as Hotel Circle - but just by 10 minutes or so. Floors and carpet could use some deep cleaning but overall well kept room and clean.

We enjoyed our stay ...it was very clean. The staff was exceptionally friendly. Would have preferred clarification that the sofa couch was within the same room as the bed. Overall the stay was very pleasant. We would definitely consider staying again.

I was very impressed by the room. My wife and i came to San Diego to visit family. This hotel had good reviews so i booked it for a night. Te room was clean, comfortable and the staff were extremely nice. We will definitely be coming back.

Clean, comfortable and relatively close to Legoland, Sea World, Balboa Park. One of the bedrooms is located in an open loft so you could see the lights and hear the TV in the livinig area, which was a little inconvenient. The staff was extremely helpful.

We stayed for a weekend and it was a pleasent stay. Room was clean and confortable, a very quiet area and minutes away driving to the most interesting places in San Diego. I would defínetly recomend this hotel and of course stay again on my next visit!!!!

Fantastic room with really nice textiles and colors! Close to freeway, beautiful grounds and great breakfast included. Pool, small tennis court, outdoor lounge area with fire pit. Will be back!

Was an excellent find. Enjoyed staying here and would recommend it.

great hotel nice staff the beds could be a bit softer but that is just my preference

Walk into the room with a nice "homey" feeling; Rooms very well kept. A party was happening late in the night in the room next to us, but security attended to the problem with swift justice. Very much recommended by a couple who needed a convenient hotel close to SeaWorld!

The breakfast was awesome, the pool and jacuzzi was nice. My main complaint was that the suite did not have a seperate bedroom or partion to give some privacy for the adults.

We visited San Diego to do the touristy sights such as SD Zoo and Seaworld and wanted a hotel with a kitchen AND a free breakfast not too far from the intended spots. You'd think it would be easy to find many. But Residence Inn was one of only a few within our budget. The room was clean and large enough for our family (3 adults and 1 toddler) and the ref worked okay. The stovetop burners didn't all work however and neither did the oven. But at least we could cook some food. TV was excellent. Airconditioning strong. Cleaning Service was fast and efficient. Breakfast was buffet style and had 2 waffle makers and a wide array of food stuffs. Free parking too. So if anything, the only thing that would've made it perfect would be newer appliances. We'd definitely return.

I traveled to San Diego with my sister and brother-in-law where we stayed at the Residence Inn by Marriott on Clairemont Mesa Drive. The location was a little difficult to find but being tucked in a somewhat secluded location close to everything made it so. The accommodations were comfortable and the continental breakfasts were great. I had issues with the internet, but all in all the stay was good.

Exceptional stay. Clean comfortable room, breakfast and light dinner provided. Hotel staff are very helpful. Asked for location of a near-by store, they handed me a card with clear directions.

I stay at this hotel when I come to San Diego because the location is perfect for me, the rooms are well equipped and clean, and the service is great.

The Residence Inn by Marriott San Diego Central was very clean and comfortable. It had plenty of room for the everyone. You can't beat the price for all you get. We saved a ton of money by preparing lunch and dinner in the kitchen. The breakfast is included and it was great.
