When you think of CA, you think of Disneyland and the old song "Be Our Guests".. The Residence Inn by Marriott LaJolla has made our stay here in CA the most welcoming, comforting adventure. My husband and I travelled from ME for a seven month work assignment and our stay here has been such an enjoyable part of our adventure.... More

The nice part of staying at Residence Inn's across the country is that they are so consistent. We stayed here to look at UCSD and was great to be able to have all 4 of us stay in 1 room comfortably. As is typical there is one bedroom upstairs and one downstairs. 3 flat screen TV's and a full kitchen.... More

I absolutely loved, loved, loved this hotel stay. The room was very spacious, clean and modern. Everything was flawless. The breakfast was delicious and well stocked. The staff was soooo friendly and helpful! Can't wait to come back again! I have a family of 5 and we stayed in the 2 bedroom villa. Great!

I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT MY STAY. I couldn't have been happier unless I stayed another night [or two]. I arrived late at night and had a mid-day flight the next morning. The room was like staying in an apartment. It doesn't get any better then that. The hotel was off the main road ...just enough..so there wasn't a whole... More

An interesting cluster of separate buildings make up this location. It was well maintained and staff was really nice. The direct TV had a habit of coming on with no sound but if you cycled it a few times it would work. Things were clean but could use an update. The hot water was really slow and with the water...

We liked this hotel very much. It was not far from the highway and easy to get to. When we arrived the front desk staff asked where we wanted our room....by the pool was what my daughter asked for and we got it. The pool was nice and there were lots of other kids to play with. The room furniture... More

This hotel is right down the street from SanDiego Univ. The location is pretty close to some good restaurants. The hotel itself is blended right into the community so if you are not paying attention, you could drive right past it. Overall, my stay was pretty good. The hotel staff that checked me in was very professional and courteous even... More

We have stayed here last year and thought it was ok, but this time it was very disappointing. the unit we had (1413) is in desperate need of some renovation. It was not very clean. Upon arrival the toilet was cloaked, the second day the room didn't get cleaned at all. After asking, we got some clean towels, but no... More

We stayed at the Residence Inn with my 89 year old mother who has fairly advanced arthritis. Our suite was not one of the handicapped accessible rooms because we needed a two bedroom unit. The bathroom on the first level had a standard low height toilet, and the staff at the hotel went out of their way to obtain and... More

Honestly I wish trip advisor had half stars, as I would have given this property 2 1/2 stars instead of 2. First the good.....the property offers a terrific breakfast. The property is also very conveniently located. It appears that lots of families stay here. Each room has a small kitchen. Staff is friendly and attentive. The bad...as stated in numerous... More
