This hotel was such a pleasant surprise! The property looks like a small, same-old from the road - yet actually full of unexpected value. The rooms are beautiful well-stocked and clean.

Our family stayed at this property recently for 5 nights. We chose the 2 bedroom/loft set up. Upon our arrival we received a room that was unacceptable as it wreaked of cigarette smoke and stale odors. The front desk staff was extremely accommodating to our request for a new room. From then on in it was smooth sailing. Our room... More

This is the real property of residence inns! The ones that you feel that you are in your own apartment. Love the fact that you walk thru gardens and you don't feel like you are inside a big box. Excellent hospitality from the moment you walk in to checked in. The gentleman that checked me in was very professional and... More

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
