We stayed here one night while on a quick trip to Lego Land. We were greeted and quickly checked into our room. Changed our clothes and went for a swim. Pool area was nice and clean and I was happy to find that the water wasn't freezing like so many other hotel pools. After our swim we went to the... More

Stayed here for a family trip in late June 22, 2014 for 4 nights. Had booked the two room suite as a little treat, since the price wasn't bad to give the kids their own room. Property is off the freeway a little bit, but not bad at all. Close to Legoland, which was a plus. Staff was very friendly... More

Very nice hotel, comfy spacious room, friendly staff. The only reason I wouldn't give them an Excellent is the Continental breakfast. No waffle iron number one. Very plain and basic choices. Other than that nice place to stay. Patricia at the front desk in the mornings is very nice and helpful. Also close to the beach.

I just spent 4 nights at this hotel. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and friendliness of the staff. Every staff member smiled and said Hello or Good Morning, etc. I was looking for a box to hold a fragile item that I had purchased, and 2 maintenance staff helped me! Kaitlyn at the front desk went out of... More

This past weekend, our family of five made are way over to San Diego for an impromptu getaway. While not quite on par with the Residence Inn by Marriott, this hotel was definitely comfortable and spacious and within driving distance of all the major San Diego attractions without the hefty price tag. One drawback is that traffic in San Diego... More

Stayed here memorial day weekend for my son's wedding. On the plus side, the hotel was very close to the wedding venue. Our only interaction with the staff was on arrival and at checkout. Friendly and pleasant staff at the desk. First, the elevator had an extremely bad odor which may have been a combination of musty and heavy duty... More

The staff were friendly and I loved that my request the type of room I wanted and location I wanted was accommodated. I came in and out of the side entrance straight to my... More

We stayed for two nights wanting to enjoy the carlsbad area. Great location, convenient to shopping and flower fields. We utilized their laundry services. Breakfast choices were limited (no hot breakfast like others Residence Inn I have stayed at). Warm whirlpool and pool. Their kitchenettes had all dishes etc. Clean environment and kitchen Would stay again.

I've stayed at this hotel multiple times over the last 18 months as I visited the area for work. I love Towne Place Suites, and just wish every city I worked in had them conveniently located. Just what I need for my stay. Clean rooms, mini kitchen with a full fridge/freezer, dishwasher, dishes, double stovetop, sink, toaster & microwave. This... More
