Stayed two nights on a family vacation. We selected this place because it has free parking, free wifi, free breakfast, and the pool area looked nice in the photos.The location was pretty much 15 -20 minutes to everywhere (La Jolla, Downtown, Zoo). The hotel is right off the highway and we felt safe but if you drive a mile down... More

During your stay we were completely sold out and we will upgrade our loyal Marriott Rewards members when we have the ability. Hopefully you will consider... More

The only reason I don't give this hotel 5 stars is because their gym is not good. Other than that you will love this place. Everyone from the manager to housekeeping are all about good customer service. I have stayed here for months due to work and I recommend this place 100%. The suites are great. Breakfast is included.

Residence Inn Central is suburb. Nice 2 story loft was perfect for our vacation. Room was clean and ac worked great. The complimentary full, hot breakfast was an excellent way to start each day. The amazing staff was so friendly and helpful. They recommended restaurants, attractions and a great beach. Will certainly recommend and return.

This location was such a great find once we arrived in the San Diego area with family and pet awaiting our house to close escrow. We ended up renting a penthouse/suite with two bedrooms. One of the rooms was upstairs in a loft area and the other was just off of the living room. While making a move from overseas... More

Top notch staff. Rose, Michelle and Candice always went above and beyond at the front desk. Was there on business for the federal government. My family came to stay with me for two weeks, and they loved it also.
