The staff at this facility are extremely friendly and helpful. The shuttle service made it very easy for us to get around and not have to worry about directions and parking. The rooms were very clean. A great location.

This hotel is a little gem. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the location is excellent and the staff are exceptionally friendly and competent. We had an unexpected extended stay at the facility and could not have been more pleased. Even the quality and variety of the offerings at the buffet breakfasts and social hours were a pleasant surprise....

We (my wife, teenage son & daughter, and mother-in-law) came to San Diego for a family wedding, and were looking for a nice hotel that all of us could fit in. We came across this property and, from the good reviews, decided to book it. I'm glad we did. While the price was high (high summer season), the suite was...

We visited San Diego area last weekend for a family wedding. We stayed at the Residence Inn for two nights. I highly recommend this hotel. The staff could not have been more helpful and gracious. Our suite and adjoining room were spacious and very comfortable. We slept very well. And, it was great to have a kitchen. How convenient! The...

Like so many Marriott properties, this one needs a remodel. The carpet and floors look old. The place was crawling with pets. If you get a room on the back wall you will face the train tracks and have a full night of no sleep. There are lots of these rooms. You also want to be sure you are not...

I made a trip to sea world and stayed here. When I booked the room I asked how far it was to Sea World and was told 1 mile, this was a lie. I asked for a private room, did not get it. When I arrived I was told my reservations were canceled but they would reinstate me for the...

We travel infrequently, and always have our choice of hotels, regardless of expense. This is our 5th or 6th year coming to San Diego and we ALWAYS stay at this particular hotel for the quality and value it offers.

Stayed here three nights in a suite. Saved money by enjoying their great breakfasts and free shuttle service. Room faced train track in back, but it wasn't noisy. Walking distance to wharf attractions and restaurants. Best part was the amazing staff. Everyone (maids, drivers, reception, food servers) treated my family like their family. Manager should really reward such excellent staff.
