I have stayed in many hotels but I never had a general manager treat every guest as if they were his long lost friend. Trent and his staff were absolutely phenomenal hosts and here's why. My husband and I arrived to spend a week at the Carlsbad Residence Inn because my mom was very ill. She, sadly, passed away the...

Sheri G, We were all heartbroken to hear about your loss. Sometimes we don't know why people are with us, but when we do, we pride ourselves on the personal connections that we make with our guests. I can't take the credit because it is not trained or a transaction. I am just very fortunate to have a group of...

I agree with jcook7, who did an excellent review on this hotel. I stayed here on 9/25 and 9/26/14. Sarah gave me an early check-in and a great 1 bedroom on the top floor. She, Alex and Shawn were all so very helpful. Shawn BBQ'd hamburgers and hotdogs Thursday night. I joined many guests watching Thursday Night Football on the...

One of the nicer residence inns I have been too. First, the rooms were top notch and comfortable. The desk staff were very nice and efficient. And the breakfast was delicious. Will stay here in the future and next time I will use the outdoor tv and lounge area. Looked like a very nice place to have a beer.

We were going to Seaworld and Legoland the next day so we decided to stay here instead of SD.
