The entire staff made us feel very welcomed. They were super friendly, kind, cheerful and helpful. Our room was very nice and clean with a comfortable bed and lots of room. We were centrally located, only a short drive to downtown SD, Sea World, zoo or to La Jolla and Mission beach. We could see and hear the occasional fighter... More

We were in town for a soccer tournament and when we arrived check in was a snap. Friendly check in host and our room was ready to go! The room was clean and just what we needed. Check out was just a simple and hassle free. We will remember this hotel for our next San Diego Tournament or vacation.

We knew we wanted to go to San Diego but had not done any serious planning. Two families wanted to travel and visit the various places of interest in San Diego. With the Christmas vacation time fast approaching, we made the bookings via Priceline. We got a good price and I set my expectations quite low. We reached the hotel... More

Residence Inn Kearny Mesa is a well-managed hotel with a competent, friendly, customer-service oriented staff. The location is not glamorous but very conveniently located for business and vacation travelers alike. The rooms are clean and well-maintained. All of the basics are executed flawlessly, with one exception: the laundry room (see below). The hot, complimentary breakfast is a real time saver... More
