We had a good stay, the bumped us from a studio to one bedroom which was nice. They did not seem full on this particular stay. It is a good facility with nice evening social.

Normally we always try to stay in Marriott when we travel so we know about this hotel. But this hotel was exceptionally better that all other hotels we stayed. The staff was friendlier and the hotel was very clean. Rooms were very clean and quiet. The breakfast buffet was far better that other hotels. There was plenty of parking free...

We have stayed here many times in the past 7 years while visiting family and I have previously given this place several 5 star reviews . . . until this year. During our entire 5 day April visit, the hot tub had no heater. You had to go to the front desk to ask for towels for the pool. Several...

We were visiting family in San Marcos and decided to try the Residence Inn. The room was nice, when we arrived they upgraded our room which was nice. The continental breakfast was the usual stuff you get at any hotel.

Nice place for our family to stay on a trip to Legoland. We appreciate having a bedroom separate from the living room and kitchenette so that we don't have to go to bed when our 6 year old goes to bed. Everything was clean and in working order. We basically just rested here between our trips to Legoland, the aquarium,...

We were not happy with the bed. Much too soft for us. We tried putting the fold out couch mattress on the floor, but still not good enough. Good mattress is our number 1 requirement. They were full and there was no alternative room, so there did not seem to be an option. Normally, we would have declined to stay...

Dear pdinsure, Thank you for taking the time to write a review for your recent visit. As I have discussed with you, we do get many guests that also appreciate the soft mattresses, but some prefer a much firmer mattress. The mattress that we use is required by the brand, but we will be getting a property refurbishment towards the...

The suite was a very generous size. I didn't really need all the appliances, but they were all stainless steel and spotless. A perfect spot for a longer stay...dishes, silverware and glasses all were included.

Good location with easy freeway access, but this brings some noise. Some furnishings have worn edges yet overall is clean and bright. Limited toiletries but front desk will provide body lotion. Good breakfast, loved the Greek yogurt, waffles, with varied syrups and fresh fruit. Evening reception disappointing, more just snacks except for one evening. Small but nice pool area. Quite...

“I found the road noise heard in the room on the second floor front to be unacceptable, although my husband slept right through it! The staff was able to make a quick move for us to a quieter room the next morning! No hassle.”
