The Fireplace near the pool doesn't work at least for 3 months and nobody cares, guys from reception escalated it several time but nobody fix it yet. In general nice place, quite, not bad food, free beer and wine on Monday-Wednesday. Hope fireplace will be fixed soon.

I stayed here on night for business in March 2017. I requested early check-in and the hotel was very accommodating. I'm a Platinum with Marriott so the hotel gave me a very nice upgrade. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Lots of places to eat one exit south of the hotel. The best part was I had to check out @ 3AM to catch an early flight. I called down to the desk and asked the young lady on duty to print my bill. She asked if I would like her to make me some coffee. Now that's service! I got my bill and a nice cup of hot coffee for the road. Excellent!!!!!

Helpful and friendly staff, good size clean room and bathroom, well located, close to the freeway, but quiet. Very good breakfast under the direction of Maria, efficient, friendly and helpful. Check in and check out fast and efficient.

As a frequent business traveler, I am comforted by the Marriott family line, products, and services. So knowing my personal residence was going to have some minor construction work that would take approximately two weeks I decided to stay at a Residence Inn by Marriott. It has a lovely kitchenette, dining and living room seating area with a separate bedroom. My Highlights: The Staff, and their daily attempts to create a very social, and warm environment for the guest, by offering free appetizers , hot hors d'oeuvres in a very chill environment. Each day is a different theme, which includes, selected wine or beer. What a GREAT ALTERNATIVE for the solo or team business travelers, to chill and recap your day. ☆SALUTE

The staff really goes out of there way to make you feel at home. Cindy does a great job in food preparation in the evening. Ruth makes sure your day starts out right with breakfast. Front desk team is top notch and very customer friendly. Thanks to Michelle, Kyle, Pauline, Alexis, Nori, Tiffany! Rooms are clean, beds comfortable, and A/C is cold. Fine job to all the the housekeeping & maintenance team. My home-tel of choice when in SD!!

The staff at this hotel is fntastic. Cindy puts on such a good spread on monday through wednesday, it just makes you want to stay all night. She Knows how to make a guest welcome. The desk people are great also, Kyle, Michelle and the others are so very helpful, they make you feel important. The breakfast staff and the maid service was also great,. If I ever have an opportunity to come back to San Diego, you can be assured that I will stay at this residence inn. Just meeting Cindy, is enough to warrant that.

We stayed here with our two teenagers for three nights over the Labor Day weekend. Check-in was fast & easy and we were glad to get a room higher up, away from the noise. The hotel was packed, so there was no shortage of noise coming from the hallways, pool and common areas. Access from the freeway was easy and it was nice that there is a gas station/convenience store across the parking lot. The room was nice enough, a little tired but overall it was nice. I really don’t have any complaints regarding the room or our stay. We weren’t at the hotel much; it was more of a home base while we toured San Diego. The reason for my review is because of how terrible the breakfast was two out of the three days we were there. I understand it was a holiday weekend, but what a disaster breakfast was! The full breakfast was a major key in choosing a hotel for our family to stay. First of all, they have the breakfast area jammed into a small corner of the hotel lobby. It’s galley style which really prohibits flow of multiple people in there at any given time. The line for the waffle maker was so long (13 people deep, the one time I bothered to count) that it completely blocked the rest of the food, so even if you didn’t want a waffle you had to stand in line just to get up to the hot food (people were very unwilling to step aside for you to get some eggs, probably because they’d invested so much time in line). Half the food was gone and not replenished, the juice machine ran out of juice, and once you did manage to get a little food there was absolutely no place to sit and eat it because they only have a few tables and chairs. Seriously, this was the worst hotel breakfast I’ve ever seen, and we’ve stayed dozens of places that offer breakfast. I do feel compelled to say that the woman who was running breakfast was working really hard and did seem to be doing everything in her power to keep up-this is not her fault, she’s only 1 woman! Overall the stay was nice but they need to reinvent their breakfast area. I didn’t appreciate feeling aggrevated each morning because the breakfast, which I had paid for in my room rate, was such a fiasco. Be mindful of this if you’re staying during a holiday weekend/time or with small children. It will not be quick or easy and you probably won’t get to sit down to eat unless you take your food back to your room.

Our first time stay but not our last. Far enough from downtown to stay out of the hustle and bustle yet close enough to all of the San Diego area. Service was excellent. More than satisfied. Thanks for everything.

We spent a couple of nights there while we were in San Diego for our family vacation. We had a great stay in this very clean and family friendly hotel! Overall we were very pleased with the surrounding amenities, easy access to San Diego, and the excellent staff!

We spent 5 nights at this hotel and found it very quiet and clean. It was really good value for what we paid. The breakfast got us going in the morning and my kids were able to go swimming at the end of a long day of exploring San Diego. It was close to a few places to eat and we were able to get to a Target when we needed some stuff. The proximity to the zoo and beaches was good. We would definitely stay here again when in the San Diego area.
