5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My family and I enjoyed a week long stay at the hotel. We loved being able to relax after a full day at the many attractions in the San Diego area. The hotel served a very adequate breakfast each day before we began our activities. The location was perfect; the staff very courteous and helpful

I have stayed at this property more than 10 times and plan to return again soon. It is by far the most outdated Residence Inn I have stayed at, however, it is clean and has a wonderful charm based on it proximity to grocery stores, restaurants, UCSD and La Jolla area beaches. I've observed many families visiting students at UCSD,... More

Upon arriving, it is one of the most difficult complexes to navigate around to find your place. The map needs to be adjusted and the person at the front desk needs to speak better English. It was difficult for my husband to understand what she was saying about the map. The units are oddly numbered and don't follow conventionally patterns... More

The exterior of the property is in desperate need of maintenance. The room our family stayed in absolutely filthy. The room smelled like wet dog so did the reception area. We are gold members and we will NEVER be back to this Marriott nor recommend to friends.

We booked 5 nights in a family suite for my husband, self, daughter, and mother. The first thing we noticed upon arriving were the people sitting on the curbs of the parking lot smoking. Upon entering our room, there was an odd musty smell....later we thought it was dog smell (This is a pet friendly property). There were food stains... More

Stayed several days while attending a business function and brought family. Very clean room, great friendly and helpful staff. Although a bit dated our stay was very comfortable, rooms were great and it was convenient to us to go see some of the area in my off hours. I would recommend this as a great place to stay if in...

I will preface my comments by stating that the staff at the Residence Inn La Jolla could not be more friendly or accommodating. The complimentary breakfast buffet was hot, fresh, and had plenty of offerings. My complaint is that this is an older facility in need of major modernization. The exterior looks old, registration area looks old, etc. In our... More

We stayed with extended family for about a week this summer. Staff was accommodating and helpful, rooms in good condition. As in most Residence Inns, the maze of sidewalks can be confusing but we got used to it and were able to navigate. I wish there were a map in the room of where the hot tubs were scattered across...
