Very friendly staffs. Good choices at the breakfast buffet including sausages, beacons, fresh fruits and yogurt. Right off the freeway. Full kitchen is a big plus.There is a grocery store nearby and free parking.

We came straight from Legoland and arrived at the Inn around 7 pm and was expecting to check in to our reserved studio room. To our wonderful surprise, we were told we had been upgraded to a suite. The two-story suite was a little too large for our family with two kids but we felt at home the moment we... More

I stayed here for 27 nights and this became home for me. I really enjoyed the ability to make friends of other guests during their free social hours non-wed. It included free beer and wine and snacks. Sometimes it was enough to fill you up for dinner. The staff is very helpful from the front desk to the cleaning staff.... More

When our home had a flood we took sanctuary at the nearby Residence Inn on Kearny Mesa Road. We thought we would be there for a few days, and ended up in the "apartment" for about two months. On arrival we were warmly greeted by manager Jonathan. The penthouse was perfect for our extended stay. We were able to spread... More

Nice Hotel Central to all spots in San Diego. The staff was very friendly and helpful for places to eat. Rooms were clean and inexpensive. Not brand new but decent. Breakfast was free and decent only complaint is that TV remotes didn't work that well. Other than that its a good place to stay
