For where this hotel is located--near freeway and busy shopping areas, it's surprisingly quiet, which we appreciated. The usual comfortable suites with full kitchens we are used to in a Residence Inn. The hotel is very near shopping, grocery stores and restaurants and La Jolla Cove. The full complimentary breakfast is good, but always very busy. One other note to... More

I loved this hotel for my business travel purposes. Quiet location. Free, fast in-room wifi. Great, hot breakfast. Mon-Wed free happy hour dinner with drinks and hot food. Studio rooms have a full kitchen, so you can make meals yourself and store your lunches for the next day. There isn't a lot around, but the hotel is walking distance from... More

The General Manager Ricky was incredibly helpful, I had a few business meetings I needed to be a part of and they were extremely accomodating to my needs! I honestly have not had a hotel staff be that helpful. Thank you again!

Decided to spend a warm March weekend in San Diego and found a great deal for the Residence Inn here in La Jolla. We stayed at this same property almost six years ago. The property was great back then but found it to be even better this go around. It seems that there was a recent renovation which added a... More

This was our first Residence Inn but won't be our last. Spacious, comfortable beds, wifi that actually worked, decent breakfast buffet and good customer service. We were here for business and pleasure. Really all you need unless you're seeking romance - the setting is more business or for families.

We had a great time in La Jolla staying at this Residence Inn. The Platinum Reservation line mistakenly deleted my whole reservation, but the team at RI made it as it never happened. Fixed us up and we were on our way. Thank you for the Great Service!! I would stay here again. centrally located to all the good suff... More

Since starting our family 24 years ago, about the same time this brand got started we have favored and enjoyed many,many stays visiting family on both coasts and in our family travels. We may have aged out of Residence Inn as a family. The ONLY reason to stay at this property is its proximity to UCSD, which is why we... More

Simply put...this is by far the best long term stay hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The rooms are great with a beautiful full kitchen, comfortable beds, two bathrooms, and a full living room. Housekeeping goes above and beyond and really tidies up the room while you're gone & even hand washed our dishes in the... More

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
