My wife and I stayed at the Residence Inn San Diego Downtown on December 5 - 9, 2014. We normally stay at a Marriott Hotel, because I am a Marriott Rewards Gold member. We visit San Diego at least twice a year, and this is the first time we have stayed at this Marriott. For the first 2 nights we...

My husband and I stayed here for a night in a two bedroom suite with our two adult teenagers. We really enjoyed our stay, particularly the location - a 5 minute walk to LittQle Italy and the trolly/MTS. Each bedroom had a queen bed and bathroom, with a small living room (sleeper sofa) and kitchen in the middle. The free...

The rooms are clean, the property is well maintained, and the location is convenient to the 5 freeway and downtown. Do NOT stay here if you are attending an event at the convention center as it is too far to walk at 0600 and the neighborhood isn't what I would call safe after dark. We had friends stay here, who...

Sam Diego is way too expensive and this hotel surf on this... Rooms rate is way too high for what it is... Good side in that its location is interesting: close to little Italy, the airport and the ocean side and still within walking distance to gas lamp...

Compared to many other residence inns where I have stayed, this one was a bit of a disappointment regarding room size and other amenities. Wifi is unsecured, and hence I was hesitant to use the Wifi even though it was free. There are some rooms that come hard wired but are taken by military service personnel, Regardless, why not make...

Convenient location. A quick walk to the harbor. Near the airport. Friendly accommodating staff. Rooms in good shape - comfortable furniture and bed. Bathroom a little dated. Public areas a bit shabby looking. Overall very good place to stay

This is a great choice for convenience -came to help celebrate the 90th birthday of my aunt. I walked the 2 blocks to Little Italy and enjoyed the shops - waterfront across the highway - Gaslamp is close as are most tourist attractions. The breakfast has a nice variety and the happy hour is enough for a light meal! However...

Stayed here way back in 2007. I like this hotel for the great location. That was a good 7 years ago. The staff were friendly and back then there was always a day in the week where we have some really awesome BBQ. This hotel is conveniently located and you can run by the harbour which was a great feeling....
