The good: nice room have the "penthouse" which is a two bedroom two bath with the second bedroom upstairs and full kitchen. The food is good for breakfast. The bad: slow, spotty internet that I have had to have fixed several times and still slow. The place seems like an overflow dorm for UCSD and there is much jostling for... More

Hard to go wrong with Residence Inn, but this is a very average property for the chain. Large and crowded at breakfast and pool, but always nice to have a little extra space in the room. I would stay here again at the right price without hesitation.

The hotel is clean, it has the convenience of a kitchenette, without traffic it's about 20 minutes from the airport. Overnight parking on the premises is $15/day but it's easy enough to park near by for free.

We just stayed at the Residence Inn in La Jolla. The room was very nice, it had two floors. Much larger than my daughter's apartment. I love the Paul Mitchell products they use in the bathroom. I am very sensitive to shampoos and conditioners. The breakfast buffet was mediocre the "eggs" were not very good and the fruit assortment was... More

This hotel provides good accommodation, especially for families. Our suite was spacious with a kitchen, lounge and 2 bathrooms, plus our children had their own space in the loft bedroom. Breakfast is included in the tariff and while not gourmet, there were wholesome choices, making for a great start to the day and certainly beat paying restaurant prices. We had... More

Great location and accommodations as always. Stayed in the same room as last year and couldn't have been happier with the room and in particularly the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Prices were very reasonable given the location.

Clean rooms, friendly staff, breakfasts very well handled (lots of variety, changes daily, lots of staff, lots of food). Cons: small, very... More

We recently stayed at the Residence Inn La Jolla and overall had a positive experience. The accommodations are ideal for a large family. We were particularly impressed with the staff and found the breakfast and frequent dinner/nightly get togethers a real bonus. One night they had a dinner with kareoke, it was a blast and my kids had an amazing... More

If you've been to any Residence Inn before, you know the standard breakfast spread. We'll this one had all you could imagine. Breakfast burritos, waffles with all the toppings, cereals, bagels, fruit, both hot and cold selection. Yum!! The rooms were a little dated, but the beds were so comfortable. Everything was nice and clean. We would stay here in... More
