Like so many Marriott properties, this one needs a remodel. The carpet and floors look old. The place was crawling with pets. If you get a room on the back wall you will face the train tracks and have a full night of no sleep. There are lots of these rooms. You also want to be sure you are not... More

I made a trip to sea world and stayed here. When I booked the room I asked how far it was to Sea World and was told 1 mile, this was a lie. I asked for a private room, did not get it. When I arrived I was told my reservations were canceled but they would reinstate me for the... More

We travel infrequently, and always have our choice of hotels, regardless of expense. This is our 5th or 6th year coming to San Diego and we ALWAYS stay at this particular hotel for the quality and value it offers. I own a real estate company with 30 agents, and was in the hotel and restaurant business for 10 years prior-... More

Stayed here three nights in a suite. Saved money by enjoying their great breakfasts and free shuttle service. Room faced train track in back, but it wasn't noisy. Walking distance to wharf attractions and restaurants. Best part was the amazing staff. Everyone (maids, drivers, reception, food servers) treated my family like their family. Manager should really reward such excellent staff.

The parking lot was difficult to get into. July is a very busy month. The staff are very friendly. The family suites are very cozy and comfortable. It could use a remodel the floors in the shower are very slippery I almost got my head the times with athletic shoes on even. There is old looking carpet everywhere. The hotel... More

I was only here for a one-night stay, but thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. Very close to the airport, with shuttle service. Lovely outdoor heated pool and hot tub; a few blocks from the Little Italy area that offered many dining choices to fit any budget. Also there was a park across the street with water views. I'll be back.

We stayed at the Residence Inn Downtown for a long weekend and it was wonderful! The facility is very clean and the staff extremely helpful. The location could not be better right across the street form the harbor, two blocks from Little Italy and a mile form Seaport Village. The breakfast was surprisingly varied and good. The rooms are studios... More

Stayed here for a night for work. The hotel is your average Residence Inn, well-furnished with pleasant staff. My studio room was spacious and comfortable, as expected, and the breakfast was more than adequate. Best part was the fitness center, with equipment I actually recognize (LifeFitness!). My room faced PCH so I had a fantastic view of the park across... More
