Awesome hotel!! Conveniently located to everything in San Diego.. The customer service was excellent. They thought of everything you'd need for your stay. A full kitchen in a very spacious room.. Not that you need it with the wonderful full breakfast and dinners Monday -Wednesday, a heated pool, sport court for the kids.... Amazing!

Resilience Inn was the first long term stay hotels that were set up as little separate buildings with a gate house budding out front. Now Marriott builds the new Residence Inns like a normal suites hotel. I have always had a preference for these throwbacks although they are getting harder to find. This location had it all. You could not... More

I just had a great experience on this hotel. The service is excellent, since the check-in until the check-out. They are always smiling and doing all efforts to provide you a great stay. The happy hour (Monday to Wednesday) by the pool is also great, with funny invitation messages on the voice mailbox. I definitely will recommend it. Spacious room,... More

We stayed here one Sat night in August 2014. It was perfect for our needs. We needed a place to hang out with our family when visiting, and this fit the bill as we had our adult child stay with us. Our room was the "penthouse" style unit. It was like a little apartment and the complex actually looked more... More

Great place to stay. Staff is helpful and friendly. I had a few maintanence issues that were handled immediately. The free breakfast is excellent and the dinners are good. Housekeeping is outstanding! The hotel is centrally located and if you are going to the Naval base the traffic is not bad. It seems like you go the opposite way of... More

This Hotel is amazing!! from amenities to personnel and food! We stayed for aproximately 2 months due to a problem at home, and we could not have been happier, all things considered. Home is always better , but if you need to stay somewhere for whatever reason for an extended stay, I cannot reccommend them highly enough. The staff at... More

Great place to stay. Friendly staff. Very good breakfast but limited seating. Had no problems with parking. Approximately 10 - 15 minutes from San Diego Zoo, Sea World, USS Midway, and Mission Beach. Will stay again. Highly recommend!!

Our soccer club travels with two teams 7-9 times a year and we like the Marriott Residence Inn's for two main reasons. The rooms all have small kitchens and the full hot breakfast. The service we received from the entire staff was excellent and they made us feel wanted. This location is now our first choice for San Diego!

I finally found a good hotel in San Diego. This facility is well maintained and they have enough staff to get things done - and they're all friendly, helpful people. I felt relaxed here. Management is pro-active. They're out there interfacing with guests. The Front Office Manager even called after I got to my room to make sure everything was... More
