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

We returned to the hotel this past weekend with our 2 kids and had another good stay. The location is great in La Jolla, right down the street from Torrey Pines and Minutes from the Coast, which is great. The rooms are good, typical RI rooms. Breakfast was plentiful as expected but definitely crowded on Sunday morning! One thing for... More

Vince helped us out a lot. He gave us the royal treatment. He helped us change the input on the tv and it really made my day cause I get to watch movies now. Thank you. He allowed us to ask questions about the TV and how to work it.

I stayed for one night for a quick visit to UCSD. The front desk staff was very accommodating. The breakfast was a bit of a zoo in the morning with a lot of people, but still not a bad breakfast. I enjoyed that they were able to provide a free shuttle to and from UCSD. They just had me schedule... More

Very nice accommodations for two, my wife was due for surgery at the nearby UCSD Thornton Hospital and we live too far to go home after the 'outpatient' procedure on the same day. So a two night stay was in order. Friday morning breakfast looked like the leftovers from a boy scout outing very disappointing. Saturday morning was order of... More

Pretty good suites. They are convenient and have a full fridge. They also have a little table that can be used for dining or as a desk. Rooms are clean and comfy. Staff at front desk is nice and helpful. I'd stay here again.

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.
