General manager is great. Had a heating issue that wasn't handled however the GM stepped in and took care of it the correct way. Very professional.

Great staff and outstanding HOT breakfast. Numbers very handy when traveling with children. $100 pet fee regardless of stay duration is excessive. I would like to know what's included in that cost: driving across country to VA that fee is by far the highest. $16 per day to park. For San Diego, this is z good price overall.

We were happy with our room and the hotel amenities. We had a spacious suite that easily accommodated 4 adults and a child. While some of us were sleeping in the bedroom, we were not disturbed by the others chatting in the other room with the door closed. There was a large selection at breakfast and even the picky eaters in our group enjoyed something that was provided.

Really impressed with the free meals and beverages offered in the evenings. Great family friendly hotel. Staff were fantastic. Great value for money, very clean and tidy.

We were greeted nice the first minute we walked in. The staff was wonderful. The food was good. Coffee was hot and fresh. The teenager love the pool. Walking distance to a extremely good Mexican restaurant.Hotel Circle is a good location. Easy to get on the freeway and Sea World. Love and I truly recommend this hotel for families that enjoy people.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and courteous when we arrived. Our room was clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, with lots of choice, and fresh and hot. The location is central to the Zoo, Old Town, and other tourist hot spots in San Diego. Would definitely stay there again.

I'am disable from a heart attack and stroke. I'am in a wheelchair and have limited mobility. My wheelchair fit through every door jam front door to elevator. I enjoyed the hot tub with the electric chair left. I have rent from serval Mission Valley hotels and this is the best experience I have had,from check in to check out I love there service. I will gladly return for more comfort stay. Byron Barton Seattle, WA 98136

The staff and the room was great, my only complaint was that when entering the room for the first time it was freezing cold. The thermostat read at 61 degrees. The hotel also offers a delicious breakfast every morning and a dinner on weekdays. Overall it was very nice.

Very clean, close to bus stop, staff was so helpful and friendly.It was a pleasant surprise to not only get complimentary breakfast but also a dinner, served with wine or beer. Will for sure staying there again on our next visit to San Diego.

I loved this hotel. It made our trip THAT much better. Our room was very clean, beds were comfy. Nice kitchenette. The kids loved the heated pool. We loved the awesome breakfast every morning. That alone saved us a ton of money. Kids went to movie night, they provided drinks and snacks. We just felt well taken care of. I would def stay here again!

The staff at this hotel are very helpful and friendly. I like the complimentary breakfast and free internet. Our room has HDTV in living room and also in bedroom. I also like the kitchenette.

Our six year old granddaughter called this "Fantasy Hotel" as soon as she saw the tennis courts, hot tub, pool, free breakfasts and free light dinners, kiddy bingo and kiddy TV specials. The staff was extremely helpful. I would recommend this hotel to one and all.

We had excellent service, a few tweaks but all in all the staff and hotel were great. I would stay there again. Hotel had great free breakfast, and happy hours daily. It was close to Sea World, Old Town, not far from the beaches.

Very nice hotel and amenities included along with an excellent location in the San Diego area. We'll be back ...

My experience with service was poor. Housekeeping did not make up my room until after 5 pm and that was only when I complained at the front desk. I had no clock in my room when I checked in and the person answering my call asked, "Are you sure"? When I checked out, I found a form letter on my car stating that I was taking up two spots (!) and the next time I did that I would be charged an extra fee. I was NOT in two spots; I was on the white line because the SUV next to me was over the line. I felt that being reprimanded in this way was not appropriate for a hotel of this caliber. However, in the end, my comments were listened to by one of the managers who sent me a very nice email, apologizing and offering me a 2-night stay to make up for my experience.

Excellent stay. Everything was great except the parking. Original information showed free parking. $13.00 per night was a surprise.

The hotel was fantastic all around! The hotel staff were super friendly and even gave my husband and I a complimentary bottle of champagne for our honeymoon! They offered a deluxe breakfast buffet every day whih was great and offered anything you could think of. During the week they also offered complimentary beer and wine and dinner in the evening. Location was great, we had a rental car and we were able to get to everything in San Diego within 10 min. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. Will definitely be on the lookout for other Residence by Marriott on our next vacation.

Staff excellent. Hotel condition and amenities great. Best selection of food for complimentary breakfast for any hotel I've stayed. Even complimentary dinners!! This hotel was ranked high when I did review and I agree. I would highly recommend this to everyone!

Went on a short trip to see the sites in San Diego. Could easily have stayed here for a week! Very comfortable, lots of room, quiet, staff was great, the other guests were friendly, close to all the sites, and attractions, and the price was good.

Very good location, close to the airport and Old Town San Diego. Plenty of restaurants and shopping. Close to zoo and other attractions. Only downside was $13 a day for parking. Large room with kitchen, great for 4 people.
