Fergie and the breakfast staff always greet me with warmth in the mornings. Kathleen is my happy hour queen. Santiago at the front desk is one of my...

Nice hotel; maybe too expense for what it is. Breakfast is not so good but the rooms are. Sometimes you can have some noise problems with the fridge and you can't sleep. It has a huge parking, if you stay for several days it is free.

As three long-time friends, we travel annually to reconnect. This year our annual 'girlfriends' trip started off as a disaster when our first accommodation was unacceptable. We were rescued in style and at an excellent price by the Residence Inn. The Assistant Manager, Sirpa was amazing. Got us into a terrific 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite with living area and...

This is a nice Residence Inn with very helpful and accommodating staff. The rooms have been well maintained and all appliances are in good order.

The Residence Inn was a great place to stay. An Uber from SD airport is < $30 and most businesses in the area are < $10 so the location is excellent. The staff was exceptionally friendly, the breakfast was very good. The rooms are large with kitchen (microwave) and well appointed.

Nothing fancy - clean, spacious room with all the amenities one could need. Loved that the room not only had a kitchenette but they would take your grocery list to the store and buy what you need - they only charge the actual price of groceries which was a nice surprise. Parking was supposedly $12/night but I wasn't charged over...

The customer service at this property is horrible and the staff is rude and impolite. Charged me for two reservations instead of one. When I called the hotel to assist, the front desk agent was very rude, even thought I have a life time platinum status. They do not value their valuable guests
