Unfortunately this was not a fun trip. My best friend's husband was in the hospital nearby and we drove down to visit him. I wasn't sure I was going to find something on such short notice for under $200.00 being this was La Jolla, but I was very surprised when I got a nightly room rate of $111.00. I used... More

Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Reasonably well maintained. Room had a funky odor. Furniture and carpets need replacing. No views and difficult to park and drag luggage upstairs. Staff was helpful. Would consider again if I needed the space. Two bathrooms a real plus

Not always easy finding a place to accommodate a family group with space and privacy. Our "loft" room had three kings (I think) and two baths, plus a kitchen and living area with couch and tv. Plenty of room to stretch out, make meals. Room was clean, comfortable beds. Great hot breakfast included in room rate. All the staff we... More

Great Location and the staff did a nice job. However this Residence inn is wore out. The furniture there is the same when we stayed there 17 years ago and looks very worn. We averaged over $300.00 a night for this stay, not worth the money we spent each night of our stay.

If you need an affordable apartment style room with full kitchen and a huge breakfast buffet each morning then this is your place. They have coffee available round the clock in the lobby, which I appreciated, but would've enjoyed a rotation of hot dishes at breakfast as every day it was the same thing. The rooms themselves are more like... More
