We stayed for five nights as a "staycation"/escape while our house five miles away was going through major home improvements. What a comfortable and cozy getaway it was. The one bedroom suite is perfect for two people - even when they want to watch separate television shows or escape the other's choice of channel. The manager's evening specials - we... More

I stay here for business, and have gotten to know the staff. Without meaning to exclude anyone, Sarah & Alex at the front desk are wonderful and know my preferences, Ryan ensures that the swimming pool water is clear, and Matilda ensures that breakfast is always well supplied. I've stayed here long enough to watch the staff change as life... More

My family and I have stayed at this hotel about 3 times now, and each visit has been amazing. The staff is extremely friendly, especially Alex at the front desk and Sarah in the kitchen. The hotel serves breakfast seven days a week, and offers muffins, yogurt, cereal, boiled eggs, fresh fruit, waffle machines, toast, bagels, oatmeal, and two hot... More

Our family of five (3 kids under 9) stayed in the queen suite room with sofa bed. What we loved: great pool, super friendly staff, clean, yummy breakfast and closeness to Legoland. They also played a movie outside one night and served popcorn and cocoa--the kids loved it! We would stay again in a heartbeat except that this was the... More

i stayed her for a long term business detail. The place is very clean. The front desk, food service staff and housekeeping topnotch. The managers reception cannot hold a candle to Hilton Homewood Suites, often very poor food choices, but free beer and wine-well who can complain about that. The management is VERY slow to respond to unruly, loud, screaming,obnoxious... More

The hotel room is extremely nice, with modern furnishings, and a full kitchen. The hotel courtyard has a pool, hot tub, a basketball court, a couple large grills, and a large tv with seating area. Several nights a week there's a hospitality hour, where they serve a simple meal with beer (Stone pale ale!) and wine. And they put out... More

Our family joined friends in the North San Diego County area for Halloween and we were looking for a place that wouldn't be too wild for relaxing after the festivities. We found it at this Residence Inn. Yes, we could have stayed near the beach and not in a business park area, but it was quiet and a great value.... More

BCKTravelers, Thank you so much for the glowing review. It is great that you found the location ideal for the family after a fun night out. We are close...but not too close to the noise and traffic of the beach and downtown. Our spacious two bedroom suites are really awesome for families, especially with that second bathroom.

Great place and I could live here except our room 124 was nice to the mechanical room and was noisy all night.
