4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Upon arriving, it is one of the most difficult complexes to navigate around to find your place. The map needs to be adjusted and the person at the front desk needs to speak better English. It was difficult for my husband to understand what she was saying about the map. The units are oddly numbered and don't follow conventionally patterns... More

The exterior of the property is in desperate need of maintenance. The room our family stayed in absolutely filthy. The room smelled like wet dog so did the reception area. We are gold members and we will NEVER be back to this Marriott nor recommend to friends.

We booked 5 nights in a family suite for my husband, self, daughter, and mother. The first thing we noticed upon arriving were the people sitting on the curbs of the parking lot smoking. Upon entering our room, there was an odd musty smell....later we thought it was dog smell (This is a pet friendly property). There were food stains... More

Stayed several days while attending a business function and brought family. Very clean room, great friendly and helpful staff. Although a bit dated our stay was very comfortable, rooms were great and it was convenient to us to go see some of the area in my off hours. I would recommend this as a great place to stay if in...

My husband, our two teenagers, my brother and my 70 year old parents went to La Jolla for a long weekend and stayed at this property. It was perfect. The room was extremely clean, the beds were wonderful and the staff was truly great! The free breakfast was incredible, not just the standard free hotel breakfast fare.... Real food and... More

I will preface my comments by stating that the staff at the Residence Inn La Jolla could not be more friendly or accommodating. The complimentary breakfast buffet was hot, fresh, and had plenty of offerings. My complaint is that this is an older facility in need of major modernization. The exterior looks old, registration area looks old, etc. In our... More

We stayed with extended family for about a week this summer. Staff was accommodating and helpful, rooms in good condition. As in most Residence Inns, the maze of sidewalks can be confusing but we got used to it and were able to navigate. I wish there were a map in the room of where the hot tubs were scattered across...

The hotel is in a nice area and easily accessible to the highway. It also has about the best breakfast of any Residence Inn I have visited. The staff were very courteous although the reward point wheel was offered to a customer just after us but was not offered to us for points onto our account. Also, we were not... More

Like most residence inns, great kitchen and total area in the room. All was in working order. Great breakfast that was bigger and warmer than I expected. Pool was great and they had spas available, picnic areas, volleyball, etc. They had night where they had beer and wine and also something to eat. Great for family or for multiple nights... More

The staff were all very courteous, friendly and helpful. I was offered a ground floor room but when I asked who was above me, I was told a party of 5. The desk clerk immediately found me a 2nd floor room near the lobby so I could go back and forth with coffee for my wife in the morning. The... More
