My husband and I absolutely love this very beautiful and new and clean hotel! We have stayed here before, for three weeks, in 2011, and enjoyed every minute. We requested the same fabulous room on the top floor with the best view but did not get it this time. Possibly the fact that we had to change our plans and...

Dear Ms. Jessica, Thank you for your return visit to the Residence Inn San Marcos. I am sad to hear that it was not the same positive experience as in your first stay. As a Residence Inn property we are a pet friendly hotel, however in order for all guests to experience a pleasurable stay we must maintain consistency with...

My family and I stay here very often, several times each year. We are always treated like royalty. The rooms are always clean and comfortable, I have stayed in every type of room depending upon how many family members are with me. This week we stayed in a two bedroom suite. Upon arrival Danica greeted us like honored guests that...

This is one of if not the best Residence Inn in the Marriott network. As a platinum member I have stayed on business and with my family nearly a week in the past year. Front desk staff is very warm and friendly, the daily breakfast and social hour offerings are generous, and the fire pit and pool areas are enjoyable...

My husband and I stayed there the first weekend of December, for our niece's wedding nearby. We had a terrific stay with you (in spite of the cold weather outside). Everyone was helpful, friendly and made you feel at home. Excellent PR. I do, however, want to comment on an special lady, who was the servicer in charge of the...

Had business in Escondido and found the Residence Inn San Marcos to be very convenient to my meetings. Room was large and well appointed. Facility was brand new and very clean and comfortable. Got my wake-up call and breakfast/coffee in the morning. Staff is friendly and helpful. Extra bonus beer/wine/soft drinks and light dinner complementary in the evening.

I've recently stayed at several different hotels in the Econdido/San Marcos area and found most of them lacking. Unlike the other hotels, I would be happy to return to the Residence Inn. The front desk staff were very pleasant and welcoming. The kitchen had everything I needed and the room was an good size with plenty space to work, cook,...

Typical, older style Residence Inn with everything the way it should have been except that the bathroom really smelled of someone's perfume. It was at the end of a long tiring day and we didn't have the energy to move. As is becoming typical, the air conditioner did not do a good job of cooling the room. Otherwise, standard, reliable...

Our family traveled down from San Jose to visit the Safari park and San Diego Zoo. We have stayed here before and loved this place because of how close it is to major attractions here. Last year our son was diagnosed with a dairy allergy so we are maniacal about asking for ingredient content on everything. The staff here was...

“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.”
