My family and I stayed at the Residence Inn...September 12 and 13th. The check-in experience with Danica was very pleasant and comforting. Matt and Kyle were very friendly and helpful and provided perfect information with the surrounding area and it's eateries, also Kyle was very professional and polite when approaching my family to advise us that the pool is now...

My wife and I have been fortunate to stay at hotels across the globe. Many of them Marriott properties. I cannot be effusive enough regarding the staff and I mean the entire staff at our stay in the San Diego area. This Residence Inn's personnel were so accommodating, so helpful. From the front desk, to the chef who prepared the... More

The building is well-designed and well-maintained. The rooms are spacious and clean. But what really makes this an amazing hotel is the staff. From the front desk staff to the bus boy at the complimentary evening events, every single staff member seemed to go out of his or her way to make sure that guests were well served. Frankly, it's...

The room was beautiful, spacious and clean. The entire room was spotless. We loved the huge bathroom counter and how well the kitchen was stocked. The beds were comfortable and we loved the swiveling flat screen TV. We had wonderful experience with the staff. Danica at the front desk was great! She was friendly and helpful and very pleasant to... More

Stayed here for work. The staff seems to actually like what they're doing and it shows in their super helpful attitudes. The clean, well arranged room with its mini-apartment style, evening drinks and food in the lobby, combined with excellent service made an absolute pleasure to stay here!

Loved everything about this hotel. Each and every staff member is friendly and attentive. Rooms were clean and bed super comfortable. Enjoyed the pool too! Best part of our stay was the Manager's social hour! Food and drink around the fire pit with the family was a memorable event.

I have never stayed in San Marcos but had a Football game to go to @ Palomar College. Too long of a drive home after a late night game. Made reservations and was "oh so pleasantly surprised" friendly staff, very clean, very nice accommodations. Just me and my husband. It was great. Quiet too. I will definitely come back.

The service couldn't be better. Arrived late at the end of a small dinner for guests. Staff kindly prepared some vegetarian burgers and also made an ice cream sundae for dessert. The room was very clean and represented Marriott very well. Morning breakfast was quick and fresh. Hotel conveniently located about 8 miles from the beaches along PCH.

Brand new nice Residence Inn. Fabulous staff, couldn't have a better staff! Honestly! They'll accommodate as best as possible but they can't make the rooms larger. Biggest downfall for us is no connecting rooms or 2bedroom suites :-( However everything is so small, compact, tiny pool & even smaller breakfast room, lobby desk, business area even!.... it's two teeny tiny...
