Located in La Jolla, hotel is very close to many restaurants and shopping areas. Very close also to I5. Rooms are very clean, well kept and well apportioned and quiet! My unit was a standard Residence Inn unit with a very nice King (?) bed, full kitchen, sitting area bath & toilet separated from sink area. Common area was very... More

Stayed for a couple of nights. Room was a fair size and well equipped. A minor fault in the bathroom was fixed by a repair man within 20 minutes, which really surprised me. I'd expected a higher standard, but it was suitable for us. It appeared to be set up more for business travellers needing a base than for family... More

Just spent five nights in a family suite with my husband and 3 kids. I appreciated the space the family suite offers. It is often difficult to accommodate all five of us in one room so this was nice. I am glad we got the upper level, as requested, as we understand it can get noisy for those below. Breakfast... More

Great big clean rooms. One item to improve would be the breakfast Buffett and the dining area. We had to wait for seats as they did not have enough seating for the number of guests that were present when we visited.

Had the opportunity to stay here 11/4-11/7 and I must say that the stay at the Residence Inn La Jolla was definitely an awesome experience. The staff was very nice and hospitable from check in to check out. The hotel was easy to get to and easier to get to my work site for the week (10 min drive). Would... More

Park is terrible, which is typically the case in Cali. However, the parking lot is set up in a very poor way. The maintenance has been neglected. Power outlets are loose, banister is broken, door handles are loose, looks like they have hard water. Breakfast is way over crowded.

We selected this property on a recommendation from a friend to stay in LaJolla. It is conveniently located near the I5 but otherwise there is nothing else close by. Any place we wanted to go was a 10-20 mins drive. The room was as described on their website when reserving but it felt a little dated and run down, time... More

We stayed here for four nights while visiting our son who is at UCSD. It was very nice and extremely reasonable. The room was more like a large apartment with a kitchen and two full baths. There were 3 large TV's and a fireplace. Freeway was close by. Breakfast was differenent each morning and always good with lots of choices.

We spent a weekend here. The staff were very attentive, complimentary breakfast was great. They had a nice assortment of hot and cold foods. The room was very nice. However, if you plan to use the pull out couch for sleeping, forget it. It has an innerspring mattress and you can feel every spring. Basically, unusable. We checked two rooms,... More
