A great place stay for vocations, good for family and friends. A large 2-floor room with a individual room and a guest area, and a full kitchen. Close to the safari zoo and 15-20min drive to San Diego zoo and the Seaworld. Also lots of good restaurants nearby.

I travel often for business and stay at a wide range of hotels. Beyond any doubt, the Residence Inn San Diego Central is Top Notch. The lady's at the front desk, Amanda, Candice, Michelle and Rose, are helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I am always greeted with a smile and a friendly hello. They make everything from checkin to late checkout... More

I'm impressed how clean and comfortable it is here. Close to business that I needed to attend to. Close to the freeways. I love the decorations. It feels like home here. I am very glad i stayed here because i had some misconceptions about RI. I definitely would book with them again.

Had reservation issues not caused by San Diego Central Residence Inn that the San Diego Central Residence Inn corrected. Took them over an hour to resolve the issues, but they did. Excellent customer service! Thanks!

I stayed at this hotel last summer for two nights. The room was clean and the hotel has great amenities. It’s in a location that is an easy drive from the major tourist attractions. The breakfast was great, but the hotel was overwhelmed by the number of guests and did not prepare enough pancakes and French toast, so those items... More

My wife and I came to San Diego to visit family. We were very pleased with this hotel. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff were very friendly. The free breakfast was nice. We will return.

Our decision to select the Residence Inn San Diego Central for a high school reunion was a brilliant one. The rooms are spacious, equipped with a full kitchen and are quiet even at ground level. The hotel staff was a pure delight and allowed us to use their common area for an indoor pizza and wine party. Be sure to... More

I really like the hotel staff here. They are very friendly, helpful and courteous. The entire staff have great attitudes and treat everyone with kindness and respect. The rooms are always clean and well kept. The lush garden feeling is a very pleasant environment. I love the little birds fluttering around and they even have a bunny! You can't go... More

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.

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
