First lets start with the good. Breakfast was fantastic! Offered so much more than a traditional "continental" breakfast. Front desk staff were cheerful, especially Mayaa. They offered beer/wine tasting and a night of free burgers and fixings. Business centre had two computers where we could easily access information about San Diego and area. Smaller suite was nice as it had... More

Hotel claims that they provide free internet connection but reality is connection most of the time down and even when it is available the speed is very slow. Location is centric but no chance to walk around as nothing to see in the neighborhood so having a car is a must.

Typical hotel, nothing fancy but kudos to the nice pool and free breakfast. Yes, free breakfast that my kids loved. They also had special events at night (appetizers with wine/beer) and burgers on the grill (wine/beer) another night. Did I say free wine and beer? Staff was really nice and helpful. Cool place that I would highly recommend.

I was here with family as part of a three night, four room stay. We ended up on 4 different floors and found the hotel difficult to navigate. Not all elevators went to all floors (likely just a function of the physical structure, but frustrating to set off for a room number or the lobby and get lost.) They had... More

This is a very nice property and is situated in a great place. Staff were friendly at check in and out. The breakfast is presented very well with lots of choices. Parking is secured by gate and pass key. Pool area is very nice.

The guest rooms are average at best for a Residence Inn. What makes this motel special is the customer service. The staff is friendly and professional. The free breakfast and dinners were amazing. They really make you feel at home.

We stayed here for 3 nights over the 4th. Loved the location easy on and off the freeway to get anywhere. We were surprised there were pets allowed. The pool was nice with a hot tub. We had loud people in our area but still enjoyed the visit. We usually stay in a different part of Hotel Circle but easily... More

As a Marriott rewards member I ALWAYS find a Marriott close to where I need to be. The annual California State PTA brought me to San Diego this year and a near by convention hotel was their property of choice.

My family of 5 stayed here at the end of May for two nights to visit our family who lives in SD. We had a two bedroom suite which was overpriced but still cheaper than 2 separate rooms. This is also a rare Residence Inn that charges a daily parking fee, so beware. Checkin/checkout were fast. Service was friendly. The... More

Having enjoyed our stay here twice before we looked forward to spending the night here with our grandson. This was a major disappointment. The check-in was very slow (only one desk clerk at the prime time of 6 P.M.), there was no happy hour food (“the truck didn’t come” we were told), the pull-out couch in the suite was not... More
