After being at several different hotels in California during our vacation we found this one to be the best. We found the room to be nice and modern and the staff does a wonderful job keeping the place spotless. The pride of a well run hotel is obvious here. They have a great breakfast and nice seating area by the... More

The rooms and service are second to none. The very Best. Manager Steve and Linda were very helpful and friendly since this was our first time in California. Linda gave us places to go to and Steve even supplied us with a cooler to hold our cold ones for the beach. The breakfast was outstanding. WoW they even have a... More

We have just spent six nights in a two bedroom, two bathroom suite. The hotel is clean, well maintained, rooms are very spacious, breakfast is fabulous. The hotel has a pool, hot tub, pool room, gym and seating outside with a fire pit. Free wifi is great and works well and there are computers and printers in the lobby. There... More

We were recently forced to leave our home because of a flood and the entire time we stayed there the staff went out of their way to welcome us and helped make our stay as pleasant as possible. From the staff at the front desk to the ones who cleaned our room everyone treated us like friends. Including our cat... More

I travel quite a lot for business and have stayed at many hotels but this one ranks at the top. The staff were so hospitable and the management (in particular Dallas) went out of their way to ensure my family (which included an 8 month old son) would have the most comfortable and enjoyable experience. We were in the process... More

RI San Marcos is a nice, modern building with friendly staff. I am being generous by giving 4 instead of 3. I would say this place is a 3.5. While the building is nice and modern, as is the outdoor area and lobby, several things misfires that would make this place an easy 5 out of 5. The mattress in... More

We thought the Residence Inn was very nice. I will say that there was only one staff member available at check-in. She was very nice, but sorely overmatched for the line of people waiting to check in. One example of this was that she didn't know where the luggage carts were and kept telling people they must be in use.... More

Ever want to keep your favorite hotel a secret? I did. That is why I am writing this review 4 months late. We stayed here in March 2012 and ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! Our king suite was clean, attractive, roomy, and had a nice layout. The kitchen had all we needed to store food, cook, make our own coffee, and eat... More

Stayed at the Residence Inn from 21st June to 7th July and had a great holiday. I agree with other reviews that hotel can be a bit noisy with traffic but after 3 days you kind of get used to it. The pool is a little small but serves the purpose of a quick swim and cool down. Good breakfast... More
