I travel to La Jolla 2 or 3 times a year and really prefer the Residence Inn La Jolla over the other hotels in the area. I was unable to get a room last fall and stayed at the big Marriott near by and was unimpressed. there is something to be said for a consistent experience each time. Morgan, Monica... More

My husband and I stayed here just one night. The location is great in La Jolla, right down the street from Torrey Pines and a short drive to the San Diego Airport. The rooms and the breakfast are good and typical Residence Inn style. They also provided a light dinner, snacks, wine, beer, and soft drinks in the evening. There... More

Good Morning clubnev, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience regarding your recent stay at the Residence Inn La Jolla. I do apologize that you had difficulty parking. Unfortunately during high occupancy this can be difficult later in the evening but we do encourage our guests to take advantage of the overflow parking next door. We certainly... More

I think this is the first time I've been charged for parking at a Residence Inn that was an older property without a parking structure. Parking wasn't cheap at $16 a day. I knew that booking here. But what surprised me was how hard it was to find a parking space. When I checked in, there were plenty but when... More

This property worked well as I was recently traveling for a funeral with family members who are elderly. The two bedroom suite was a perfect solution for our larger family and our stay was quite wonderful. The staff was very inviting and the breakfast was more than just a continental breakfast that other hotel chains give you. Close to a... More

Morgan and staff made the extra effort to make sure that my needs for a long term stay for work were met. Perfect room, made sure the location was near to dog area and even arranged housekeeping to fit my schedule. I will definitely chose this property again for future stays. I also like the option to cook in or... More

Have stayed there for business two years in a row and the staff and facility are perfect! The executive rooms with upstairs bed/bath and downstairs living room kitchen and bedroom are perfect. Staff member Morgan was so consistently helpful and the breakfast spread is actually quite tasty! Exercise facility could be upgraded slightly (just 3 machines and some dumbbells) but... More

The room looked tired; the bathtub spout should be replaced with one that fits. It was awkward turning bathroom light on in the middle of the night without waking up spouse because the light switch is Outside the bathroom. The fitness room was roomy but set up awkwardly - TV was way to the right so it was difficult viewing... More

Booked here on a business trip with 3 associates, mostly because of price and location. Checked in late ( around 10pm ) and front desk staff was great with very good attitudes even though about 6-8 hit the lobby about the same time. Knew it was pretty full but since the set up is basically quadraplex style, asked if we... More

My husband, daughters (ages 5 and 6), and dog stayed at this hotel this past weekend and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is situated similar to how an apartment complex would be with different buildings on two stories. There is a main pool however each building seemed to have it's own jacuzzi. The rooms are not the newest Residence... More
