I am a Titanium Elite member and am loyal to Marriott and chose to Only stay at Marriott. Although I feel I should not have to, I always request an upgrade as a Titanium member and usually am granted an upgrade. But not today at this Marriott. Michael at the front desk told me that there were no upgrades available. I asked at least three times to make sure since the parking lot seemed relatively scarce. Are you sure I asked and he assured me no upgrades. However, when I went on line to go through the steps to pretend to book a room, guess what, there were rooms available that Michael said was not available. It is moments like this that make me question whether I should keep my loyalty to Marriott.

Thank you lcdrseley for your feedback. I am sorry that we were not able to upgrade you during your past stay. Alot of factors come into play when we upgrade and we certainly appreciate your loyalty and patronage to Marriott. It is always our goal to exceed our guest's expectations. Length of stay plays a large part in the upgrade process as well as Marriott Bonvoy status. I will talk to the entire front office team regarding your comments. Thanks again. Regards, Jonathan Correll General Manager

This is an old Residence Inn that has never been updated. Comes complete with popcorn ceiling, worn carpet, and bathroom finishes that are beyond repair. There is a distinct old hotel smell in the rooms. Would be great place if they would update the rooms. Also if you are in SD for vacation, this is not a good location. This is far from all tourist areas and mostly commercial business area.

Thanks so much for the review. I am disappointed that you were not satisfied with your stay. We were last renovated in 2014 and within close access to five major freeways. The beach and the zoo are fifteen minutes away with light traffic. There are great restaurants in the immediate area and I am confident that future travelers to San Diego and to our hotel will find our hotel comfortable. Again, I apologize that we were not able to meet your expectations. At Your Service, Jonathan Correll General Manager

Made the mistake and booked 2 nights paying over $200 each night. The inn is old and outdated. Our room has a musky smell to it and the worst part is that it was infested with fleas. I paid for it dearly on the last night of stay where I had over 20 bites. I would definitely stay some where else.

Our stay was very pleasant. Great and clean room, all the commodities needed. The breakfast is great and the gentleman at the reception was very nice and welcoming. Our bed was somewhat bent in the middle which made our night a bit less comfortable than expected, but nothing major. If you have a car, it's about 15-20 minutes to Balboa park and 15 from Old Town, which is great. We do recommend this hotel.

the hotel is very nice, I did not get to use the pool but it looked clean. breakfast was very good and had many options. I have just a queen studio rooms which was really nice. The only issue was the light for the bathroom blindsided the bed, so when I would get up to go to work I would wake the other person with the light or the fan. Otherwise it was a nice setup. Bathroom is also a little tight.
