“My home away from home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

It's never much fun traveling for work, but whenever I arrive at The Residence Inn Scripps Poway Parkway, I feel like I'm at my 2nd home! The staff is always so courteous and helpful, offering me anything I need to make my stay more comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

My wife and I stayed here based on the glowing reviews that we read on Trip Advisor. We were glad we did. We've never before seen a free mini-dinner anywhere else besides a full American plan resort--but you get one here! The soup and salad was delicious and complimentary and it hit the spot. The large, clean suite was comfortable. Most of all, though, we were impressed with the extraordinary service at this motel. The asst manager Derek promised us he would find for my wife a chocolate almond ice cream bar for later that night, and he did not renege on his promise! Thanks Derek! Would stay here over again many times.

We visited this place based on reviews from TripAdvisor and for sure we were not disappointed. Our short 4 night stay was extremely pleasant & comfortable. Staff is very friendly and amicable. Our requests for extra blanket and pillows were met within 5 minutes of placing a call. There is ample variety of food ( b/fast & dinner{beer & wine} ) available. Lots of amenities , free wi-fi, Tv, electric stove, microwave, fridge, utensils, laundry area, swimming pool, gym & plenty more. The rooms/beds are extremely clean, five stars to the staff for keeping them spotless. All major attractions(Safari park/Sea world/LegoLand) are within 20-25 min. driving distance.Highly recommended !!!

Thank you so much for the positive review and even including some pictures from your visit. We are pleased that we met your expectations and that you recognized our cleanliness. People sometimes think that our location is off the beaten path, but as you pointed out, we are quite central to everything in San Diego!

Thank you for the the review and recommending us to future guests. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

We have visited this property several times, and each time the service is better than before. I have been employed in the hospitality industry and am fully aware of how guests should be treated and this property has it down pat. They always greet you with a smile and use your name as if you're their best friend. The breakfast served daily in the lobby is wonderful! It's not just danish & coffee but instead a good variety of hot & cold foods on a rotating basis. A request for an extra pillow for my daughter was delivered within 5 mins!!!! Extordinary! Every employee in the hotel beems with smiles & a heartfelt hello. We have used the pool, excercise room and laundry room and all were in excellent working order as well as tidy & clean. This property is kept VERY neat & clean. Once again we thank you for another woderful stay & we will return again soon! Your Flag family!

Due to a flood in our home, we needed to move out during construction. This hotel was close to our home and provided a full kitchen. We ended up staying at this hotel for 3 full months. We cannot say enough good things about this hotel, the staff, and its amenities. Our 2 bedroom room was spacious, clean and well appointed. Having dinner prepared for us 4 nights a week was especially welcomed. The daily breakfast buffet had a variety of choices and was excellent. The full kitchen allowed us to prepare any meals needed. Laundry facilities, onsite gym, pool, jacuzzi, and a homey atmosphere were all welcomed. The location has easy access to the freeway and local shopping. I would recommend this hotel for both short and longer stays.

Room Tip: Rooms are generally sound proof but top floors do not hear any noise from room above.

Larry M,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Difficult circumstances such as floods or fires often bring guests like you to our property, and we enjoyed welcoming you to our extended family. We are glad to hear we helped keep life somewhat "normal" while you were displaced. While sad to see you leave, we are glad that you are back home and would recommend our hotel.

Keep in touch!

I stayed at this hotel on a relocation for almost 60 days during Oct-Nov 2012. I must say the staff at this hotel are amazing! They are very nice and welcoming to all guests. Also an added bonus, the hotel serves a complimentary breakfast and dinner. In the evening from 5:30-7:30pm they also serve complimentary beer and wine. This hotel also accepts pets. The hotel is well kept inside and out and is right off 15 freeway. If you are relocating or planning on staying in a hotel for a lengthy time frame I would highly recommend this location.

Room Tip: I stayed on 4th floor right by elevator and room was very quiet.
