Residence Inn by Marriott San Diego North San Marcos

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Pros: hot/cold breakfast (had better but still ok), regular bed firmness/comfort level good Cons: Bugs on sofa bed (all kids got bug bites after our stay), spiders in rooms, cleanliness (bathroom smells, shower not clean, tv area dusty), long wait for sheets (needed extra sheets for sofa bed, we requested 3x. After waiting over 2 hours, had to go down to front desk to get it ourselves)

Room couch and bed sheets are not good for a brand like Marriott. Break fast is good but same for my 3 day stay. In bath room water is not draining fast enough.Kitchen is good.

It was our vacation. We booked that hotel expecting to rest and relax. It was located not far away from the ocean, had free breakfast and plenty of parking, located close to freeways. There were wonderful, helpful and friendly front desk staff. All of them! Guys, we really appreciate what you did for us! Every time we asked you for something you were happy to help us. Thank you! However, we were unhappy with noise level. All 6 nights that we stayed in hotel, there were scheduled midnight (yes, midnight!) parties downstairs at cafeteria and outside fireplace area. Party people were so loud, they didn't care about residents who wanted rest at night. We had choice: to close the windows and turn on noisy air condition or listen the party noise until 1-2 AM. We believe managers had to care more about that. Why you could not schedule these parties at 7,8 or at least 9 PM?

Purpose of our trip was to take the little ones to Legoland, and the location of this hotel was just a short drive away; very convenient. Its situated right by the freeway, as well as a few strip malls so you'll have plenty to do. I love how they had breakfast in the morning, and not just your typical continental breakfast, i.e. bagels and yogurt. They had warm foods on the buffet counter, i.e. waffles, eggs, etc. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family!

Nice hotel right off the freeway. Very close to shopping, dining. Very modern rooms, good breakfast in the morning. Great stay!

The room was comfortable and accessible. Perfect for our needs. Thank you

This Residence Inn is fairly new, well appointed, clean and functional. Staff is friendly and helpful. Pool is a little small. Elevators are slow. But overall a pretty good value.

I was presently surprised at the level of comfort provided. The room was well appointed, met my every need, I am now considering changing my Boston hotel booking for next month to that of the Marriott.

The full kitchen, complete with utensils, made this place seem like an apartment. A long-term stay here would be so much better than a normal hotel. Highly recommend.

Hotel is new, so everything is nice and clean. Rooms have small full kitchen with appliances, convenient living room area, fantastic linens - everything you need for a good rest and stay; convenient location. Overall very positive and great exerience. Will recommend to my friends.

stayed here for the san diego zoo and legoland. for the price of all the hotels in the location, this has got to be one of the best place to stay... new hotel, rooms are clean and decent (a full kitchen if you want to cook), free wi-fi, and a full breakfast. can't ask for anything more. would recommend this hotel to anyone.

My wife and I along with our adult daughter went to North San Diego County to enjoy some of the micro-breweries in the area and to explore Carlsbad. We stayed at the Residence Inn in San Marcos because it was near the places we wanted to see and the price was right, 109.00 per night. First of all the hotel: It was brand new, beautiful, clean, stylish and the staff was super-friendly. The free happy hour included premium beer, good wine and lots of great snacks. The breakfast was also terrific. The room couldn't have been nicer!I wish we could have stayed longer. Second, the town of San Marcos: I hadn't been there before, but I found it to be a great place with lots of restaurants and shopping, located between the beach and the San Diego wild animal park. If you don't mind a short drive, you are close to everything worth seeing in North SD County; Carlsbad Beach, Legoland, Wild Animal Park, great breweries and many top-notch wineries, AND you'll save alot of money by not staying right near the beach. Third: Stone Brewery in Escondido. What a cool place to spend a few hours, sampling their many beers, enjoying their gardens, and taking a tour. Don't miss it!!
