“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We stayed four nights and used the kitchen each morning to make breakfast and a few times for dinner. Yes, the hotel did have a decent breakfast available, but it was nice to be able to make what we wanted when we wanted it, and enjoy items from the local farmers markets. Overall we enjoyed the extra space, and utility, which came at a premium price. On the down side the air conditioner was nosier then I expected but ultimately did not significantly impact our enjoyment. Also, the refrigerator was only able to achieve an acceptable temperature when set at the coldest setting. While the freezer section would freeze items in the middle setting the refrigerator was still around 60, and the fridge section should be 40 or less. If you are planning on cooking I would recommend you bring a few essentials including a frying pan, thermometer, a couple good knives, tongs, and basic cooking ingredients like oil, spices, etc. These items increase the utility of the kitchen and while the basic cooking tools were provided we all have our preferences. Overall a good experience which has convinced us the Residence brand of hotels is our preferred place to stay.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor to avoid noise from above, face hill if possible to avoid traffic noise when wi...

My family and I stayed 3 nights at Residence Inn and Suites. This was the first time we have stayed at a Residence Inn and were pleasantly surprised.
Upon check-in, there was a mix-up in our reservation but the girl at the front desk was quick to fix it and even gave us an upgrade, which we greatly appreciated.
The desk staff was always very friendly and helpful and really made our stay more enjoyable. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable. It was quiet and very relaxing, even while traveling with kids. :)
The breakfast was wonderful and above continental breakfasts I have had at other hotels. The breakfast staff was extremely friendly.
The pool was nice and well maintained and always had fresh towels.
I highly recommend this hotel and thank the staff for an enjoyable stay!

My family only stay at Marriott hotels exclusively at residence inn's. I can say this one has exceptionally great staff! Cindy, Marie, Alexis, Trent and Derek all went out of there way to make sure my request were met. My son and I stayed for 6 nights and loved the hospitality and the hotel itself was kept up and very responsive to anything small problems it may have had. A hotel snob for sure and would rate this a 9 Only because we had Horribly rude and drunk wedding party our 5th night that kept us up. and as other hotels can not confirm our request but can try to accommodate them upon arrival. I requested a room on the 4th flr, found one one on the second flr thats seemed more quiet until some elephants moved in above me. liked my room on the Other than that and know staying in a hotel will not be perfect. I give this hotel my highest recommendation. If you are picky like me, stick to the 4th flr. But the staff here make it worth the trip and the Small issues. I will definitely be back! Clean, updated, friendly and accommodating best describe this property! The location turned out great as it is in a great area and groceries, gas and food are within the parking lot or an easy 1/2mile up. 15-20 min to any main attraction! Easy jot to the freeway. This was a great place all around!

My family and I spent 6 days in San Diego with family attending a wedding. What a fantastic experience we had. Our accomodations were wonderful. ALL of the staff were knowledgable, friendly, helpful, courteous and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Two persons I would like to recognize, Cynthia (front desk) and Maria (dining area) were outstanding, so kind, and truly made us feel welcome.
When we visit San Diego again, hands down, we will be staying here. Thank you Derek and team. You guys were incrediblel!!

my family and I had to stay at the Residence Inn on Scripps Ranch for 1 month because of a flood in our house. The staff was the most friendly I have ever had to deal with. Service was the best ever. We had breakfast every morning and it was great. Always had enough food and it was very good. 24/7 coffee bar, was the best. Just overall friendly staff and was always clean. Would recommend this Residence Inn to anyone.

We had room 415: a huge two room suite. So quiet and clean! They offer a free dinner WITH WINE every Monday through Thursday night! The breakfast was plentiful with a large variety of foods, and different foods each morning. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. As our kids get older, we find that all of us in one room as we travel just doesn't work, so we will definitely be more than willing to pay the extra amount on future trips to stay in a clean, roomy Residence Inn!

This hotel is located about 20 minutes from the San Diego Zoo and 40 minutes from Legoland, just FYI.

The staff went out of their way to help! We had some special dietary needs at the terrific breakfast and they were very quick to accommodate us. The hotel was immaculate. Every time we passed an employee we were asked if we needed help. We will definitely return!

EllenD,

We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking the time to share it with others. We make special notes of the ingredients in the food we serve due to the increase in dietary restrictions including food allergies, religious reasons, personal preferences, etc. I certainly hope you and your family are able to come stay with us again soon!

Thank you again.
