What a great hotel-facilities, service, location, but most of all the people! Reasonable, fun, and local. Check it out!

We have to mention Raymond, Katie, Alex, and Dana up front;great food and service from Carol in the restaurant; nice folks out on at the pool, spotless rooms...

They all spoiled us!

This Marriott was a pleasant surprise. I found the dining experience to be above average with some great happy hour specials on appetizers late evening. What a treat. The service was of the high standards of this great service chain. You will enjoy the stay.

The staff has been phenomenal. No matter if it's been Liza Lopez in the bar or the guys at the front desk and front door this Marriott is great. So nice to know you're taken care of. Tough being on the road with work but it's so great to be greeted with a smiling face at the end of the day by people who really care. This hotel has is doing it right!

As a loyal member and platinum level member overall I was pleased with the stay. I initially asked for a room upgrade and was denied and told I could have an upgrade for $100 more a day. I was renting and paying already for 4 rooms..... No thank you I said. She also charged me for parking that was supposed to be included with the convention I was with... So to have that all fixed took an additional 20 minutes ..... But that was the worst of it.... The restaurant staff was great ... Conceirge was good although the room was small and felt a bit cramped. I asked the next day if a room upgrade was possible and got it right away. Very nice and helpful. Not like initial check in.... The room was fantastic and soooo appreciated as we had 2 other guest join us and the standard room is pretty small for 4 guests... I would absolutely stay here again. It does have a resort feel with the waterfall by the pool and hammocks. Just lovely. Also I might add.... Very very nice for the price in the San Diego area which can be very pricey!!

I've been staying here frequently for work and recently had my family here for a few days. My grandchildren, twin 2 yr olds, had a wonderful time swimming and walking around the grounds. Our rooms were adjoining so we had time to visit and had privacy when it was their bedtime. Although there have been a few changes with staff due to promotions, the new staff have transitioned and the service is still exceptional. On weekends, there is a special children's morning buffet area in the dining area. A special thanks to Jose and Robert in the lounge. Also to Alex, Taylor, Rebecca, Dana, Nicole and Ana at the front desk, and to Nelly in housekeeping.. A fond farewell and good luck to Christy and Kelly.in their new positions. The hotel is very centrally located and all staff continues to be the best I've ever had. Thank you to you all.
