I had the pleasure of staying at the Residence Inn during a recent 10-day business trip. From the moment I walked in I felt at home. The lady working the reception desk had a warm inviting smile and attitude; this attitude didn't stop with her either. It seems everyone at this hotel is eager to chat and over deliver at... More

We have met other members of our family here for an annual vacation for the past 3 years. We enjoy the location and clean, nicely maintained and appointed suites. The best attribute here, however, is the staff. They are very professional while also being very friendly. This includes the reception desk, housekeeping, and those who work in the breakfast area....

We spent the night over the past weekend. From the time we made our reservation, the staff was more than accommodating. They were courteous on the phone and that continued when we arrived. They were knowledgeable about their jobs and even helped us find a shoe store as our son had forgotten to pack his. We had a two bedroom... More

Nice check in staff that handled a potentially negative check in issue very well. Room was well cleaned, kitchen was well stocked, beds were comfy. Breakfast was more than adequate and the staff kept up with demand. Staff offered plenty of recommendations for restaurants and things to do in the area. If you are in San Marcos this would be...

Our family traditionally spends about a week in Southern California every winter. In recent years, we have used the Carlsbad area as our home base, given it's equal distance to the things in Orange County and San Diego we go down for. For our first few years of using Carlsbad as our base, we used the Homewood Suites in Carlsbad... More

Looks to be less than 1-2 years old. Super friendly staff. Easy access to the 78. Rooms were clean and I slept well. Gym was adequate. Nice outdoor pool. I would stay again for sure especially if you are in the Carlsbad / Vista / San Marco area.

My husband and I absolutely love this very beautiful and new and clean hotel! We have stayed here before, for three weeks, in 2011, and enjoyed every minute.
