Very, very clean and a good variety at breakfast as well. Eager to please and be helpful in any and all ways. We needed help to set... More

This hotel is the best hotel in San Marcos. Rooms are sparkly clean, service is good! The only thing I don't like is how fake nice some of the employees are, the "I hate you but I have to be nice to you" type of attitude. I can tell when being is genuine or if its faked. Other than that,... More

This is a pet friendly hotel which allows dogs in every room. We were on the 4th floor and the rooms around us all had dogs in them snd both mornings we were awakened at 6:00 a.m. to barking dogs. Not how we wanted to start our days. I realize that hotel management can't be responsible for dogs barking in... More

loved this hotel! stayed at several Residence Inns in the past but this one was really nice. I couldn't get in to the one in Carlsbad so we could be near Legoland but it is only 8 miles away and it was close to everything. We had a 2 bedroom suite and it was perfect for 5 people. The room... More

We try to stay in Residence Inns when we travel with our kids and most are very nice. This one in particular had such lovely staff. Everyone was incredibly nice and friendly and helpful. Our only complaint was housekeeping, we could be gone all morning and come back to find our room still not made up. We would call the... More

I'm never disappointed when I get a Residence Inn room!!!! They're clean, friendly check-in, good breakfast, multiple tvs in the suite, the list goes on. It helps to be a Marriott Rewards club member but even if I weren't I'd still pick this place for all the comforts and size of rooms.
