The Residence Inn product really does not vary much property to property but this one is stands taller due to the location and the people who work there. The front desk could not be more accommodating and the food service workers will do anything they can to assist you. The hot breakfast is quite nice (though not so much for... More

Nice clean Residence Inn to stay at while in San Diego. This property is a little smaller than the one in La Jolla. The property is in more of a commercial area with hotels and business surrounding it. Very conveniently located with easy access to HWY163. I would stay here again. My room was quiet for the property being so... More

We stayed here and enjoyed our stay very much. It was a quiet hotel with all the amenities you could need. The breakfast and staff are wonderful. I enjoyed sitting by the fire at night while the kids played in the pool.

I would recommend this hotel, very comfortable, great location, good breakfast and great staff. Very easy to navigate as it's close to the main road and we found the hotel be very central and was easy to get around by car.

As I was visiting San Diego I was looking for a convenient hotel that provides great access to the city. Best location out of the city- easy to get to points south, north and east (probably west too but I haven't headed in that direction yet). Quiet location, great room, great cleaning crew and free breakfast and dinner. The hotel... More

Great accommodations. Wonderful complimentary breakfasts. Clean, well maintained property. We loved the second bedroom on the loft. The pool and hot tub are adequate. The onsite laundromat is a great help. This is a perfect place to stay since the units have 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. I will stay here again next time I visit beautiful San Diego.

I was pleasantly surprised when I received an upgrade to a 2 story loft apartment style suite. It was so modern, clean and huge! The location is perfect with easy access to the highway, malls, restaurants, etc. I also liked the fact that for breakfast they offered turkey sausage.
