Residence Inn is always a good bet. They are consistent. Clean and comfortable. Very average breakfast but this one had a very large selection. A good choice for kids and large families. Also, pet friendly.

This facility has several free-standing buildings with several suites per building. Entrance to your suite is directly from the outside, not through a corridor. They do charge $15 per day for parking, but there is a reasonable amount of free parking on the streets close by. The suite was very clean and comfortable. The fridge is full size, and there...

We stayed here (as a stay-cation) for my husband and my 31st anniversary and the staff was extremely accommodating. They were very friendly, helpful, gave us an upgraded room and made our stay pleasurable. They have an awesome "happy hour" during the time we stayed there with a wonderful breakfast. Beautiful, clean surroundings (and personally I'm very picky about cleanliness).... More

Rooms are spacious, facility is clean and staff are super friendly. The location was convenient. They have a continental breakfast on the weekends which was nice and my family enjoyed the experience. We enjoyed staying here.

Stayed here a few nights on business at UCSD. Located close to campus and SCRIPPS was nice not having to deal with a lot of traffic. Room was a efficiency apartment with kitchenette, large fridge, stove, microwave, plates, utensils, and glassware. King size bed was very comfortable, clean and new. I had no complaints at all, it was a 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
