“Great rooms Great People OK food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Very good stay in April 2013 for 5 days. People in all areas were great - polite and customer focused. Room and the whoel site was always neat. Parking lot was crowded and the spaces very small/yet ok.
Breakfast was ok - lacked a little variety, yet what was provided was good - would like to see a little upgrade in what was provided.
I would return to this site if in the area.

Room Tip: chosse a 3rd floor room sound travels from above

We stayed for 5 days. We were greeted and made to feel right at home immediately. Amanda at the front desk was so cheerful and professional. She arranged for us to move into our room early since we had been traveling a long day. The room was clean and spacious. Because each day included a generous breakfast. and an evening meal it saved a lot on eating out. All in all a great place to stay!

We stayed here during a college road trip with our daughter. Requested a quiet room because we were all so exhausted and were pleasantly surprised by the size of the two bedroom unit. King bed in one room, two twin beds in the other. Lots of space, kitchenette, bathroom and all spotlessly clean. However the family staying in the unit above us were very noisy and the minute we reported it to the front desk, it was dealt with. An employee from the front desk actually came to our door to apologize in person and delivered a 'bag of goodies' ... Bottle of wine, bottled waters, fruit and candies! We also got a price adjustment to our check-out bill ! ( completely unexpected !)

Breakfast was great, pool was large and very clean, with plenty of towels and evening complimentary " pulled pork " sandwiches/salads plus free beer. Would highly recommend!

Room Tip: Request a room on the top floor if you want complete quiet.

Thank you for sharing a review on Trip Advisor of my hotel. I am sorry to hear that there were noisy neighbors during your stay but i am happy to know that my team was able to react in a timely manner to rectify the situation for you and your family. We here at the hotel do not condone any parties and have a strict "quiet after 10pm" policy in place to avoid noise disturbances from affecting our guests. I hope that you and your family will be back soon and allow us to accommodate you once again.

This hotel was clean and comfortable and offerred a free breakfast. We were upgraded to a family suite which has two bedrooms one with a bunkbed and one with a king. Everything was clean and pleasant, and I slept very well on the bed. This was a nice place to stay if you are finishing up a day of traveling, and want to rest up prior to heading to the rest of your vacation. The one unusual thing about the room though (the family suite) in order for the children to use the bathroom, they have to go through the master bedroom. Under certain circumstances this can be rather inconvenient.

Room Tip: Be aware that the family suite requires children to go through master bedroom to use bathroom.

Room was good - had two bedrooms with the kids on a bunkbed (great after 3 nights with them in the same room).
Breakfast free and much better than the previous Residence - busy but manageable. Didnt try the pool but looked inviting.
Free food and drinks unbelievable - any wine/ beer for 90 minutes ..... A great touch.
Main thing though was the staff - were friendly and accomdating.
I would definately recommend this hotel for families.

Thank you for taking the time to share a review of my hotel on Trip Advisor. Happy to hear that you found our rooms to be accommodating for you and your family’s needs while staying here with us in San Diego. The bunk beds are always a fun touch for our guests with younger children, allowing the kids to feel like they have their own special space while also giving the parents some room for quiet and relaxation when needed while traveling. It also sounds like you were able to take full advantage of our complimentary breakfast, light meals in the evening and our beer and wine happy hour from 6-7:30 every night. I hope you were able to try many of the seven different brews we offer on tap, many of them being local to San Diego. On behalf of my staff and me, we look forward to your return trip to San Diego and hope that we can accommodate you and your family once again.

Nice furnishings in room. They appear to have been recently remodeled. Common areas in very good shape. Parking charge was high and unexpected, This is the only Residence Inn I have ever seen charge for this.

Room Tip: Facing Courtyardor on back side away from freeway.

Thank you for writing a review of your recent stay at my hotel on Trip Advisor. I am glad you were able to enjoy your time while here in San Diego. Being a big destination city with high demands it is our company policy to charge for parking in order to keep up with the surrounding properties. We hope you will be back in the San Diego area soon!

Had a two bedroom unit very clean and spacious. The hotel is great for families with children of all ages. Great breakfasts favourite waffles and evening social wine and beer tasting. Staff very accommodating and friendly. Thank you for a great holiday. One suggestion for consideration to perhaps have a food bank section where one could drop off unopened food for the less fortunate in the the community. We had a lot of food unopened, the front desk did mention that it would not be throwing in the garbage. I sure hope that this does get to someone in need. Thank you

Room Tip: Two bedroom units are great very spacious.

Thank you for sharing a review of my hotel on Trip Advisor. I am glad to know that we were able to assist in helping your holiday be the best it could be while you were here in San Diego. As my staff mentioned to you we do not waste the left over unopened food in the rooms, we are always able to find a home that can use the items, so rest assure that it does not go to waste. We look forward to your next holiday to San Diego and hope that we are able to accommodate you once again.
