Wow, this place is spectacular. The rooms are gigantic and designed to give you most all of the comforts of home. One of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at. Hot breakfast is included, and they give you some microwave popcorn for the room.

This is a nice hotel near the freeway. We were going to a wedding at the Escondido Performing Arts Center and this was about 7 miles away. The hotel was a typical Marriott Residence Inn, nothing fancy but clean and they offer free breakfast. The one thing that stood out was the front desk staff. They were very friendly, helpful,...

It started off rocky, but the next morning the chef David, made the day start off right, friendly and positive, bending over backwards for the hotel guests. Made the stay outstanding. He was the stand out, the rest of the staff is great also. I would come back over and over again

We have been frequent guests of the Residence Inn Marriott product for years. The ONLY way to travel with children. Now our children are well into their twenties and the properties still continue to be perfect. This particular location is perfect for us. My sister lives only 5 minutes away.

This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel, and it was great. Customer service, the staff, everybody was just so professional. It has great access to the freeway, and shopping. Can't wait to come back to this hotel.
