As a traveler who spends most of my year on the road working I normally always stay at Residence inns. The rooms are more like an apartment and they have a kitchen so I don't have to eat out all the time. The residence inn San Diego on Hotel circle is by far the best I've ever stayed at. I... More

As a person who used to live in Solana Beach (it has been now >8 years since we lived there), it is a bit odd whenever I have to stay in the San Diego area for work, which is relatively often (one of the corporate offices is in Carlsbad, and there are many, many conferences that choose SD as a...

I know that I chose to stay here, but Hotel Circle is not a great place to stay. Yes, it is close to Sea World, Old Town, Downtown, Gaslamp, etc., but the are lacks any type of a personality. And it seems a bit sketchy. I would probably not walk outside at night alone. The hotel itself was fine. The... More

* The front desk person was very nice, friendly and helpful. The check-in process was very quick. * The room was somewhat outdated, but clean. It has a door to separate the bedroom/bathroom from the living room with two separate TV's, which was nice. * The vent in the bedroom was located in such a position where air would directly... More

This hotel has a great location near the zoo, Belmont park and sea world. Safari park is about 30minutes away but worth the drive. We stayed 5 nights. The breakfast section is good; hot and cold items. They also have dinner buffet Mon-Thursday. All the staff were accommodating and friendly. The only slight complaint is that the walls are a...

This is perfect for my family - two kids, parents, wife and aunt. Staff were very friendly. Parking is available and convenient. Hoping that the food is great. Surroundings are clean and hotel is easy to find. This is going to be our jump off for San Diego zoo.

We stayed here the beginning of December as part of a "cousin's reunion" and couldn't have been happier. The staff went out of there way to accomodate us.

For the second year in a row, my family stayed in a 2-bedroom family suite (king bedroom with tub, second room with bunk beds for kids, 1 bathroom, kitchen and living room) at the RISDMV for our pre-Christmas vacation.
