Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here for Temp Living which was offered through my company. I had a small dog and this place was awesome. This place is really well maintained and the staff treat you like family. We got to daily breakfast too! Great service and staff. It really did not disappoint!

I stayed at Residence for roughly 1 month while my condo was being restored due to water damage. The hotel was very accomodating in all regards and most importantly they worked closely with my insurance provider to ensure my room remained reserved for as long as I needed it. The breakfast is nice, and the staff is wonderful.

My wife and I stayed at the Residence Inn by Marriott San Diego Central. The Suite with a loft second bedroom was immaculate, I am not talking just clean by better.

I have been stayed in this hotel for many times in many years; every time I came to San Diego I stayed in this hotel - it is the best, and it is the home. Everything is great: friendly front desk staff, kitchen/house keeping staff, everyone working for the hotel, beautiful hotel premises, clean/safe/secure guest rooms, etc. This time I...

We had the privilege of staying here for 8 nights in March while our home was being remodeled. Staying in the two bedroom suite with our small dog was incredible.

This was probably the worst stay i have experienced with The Marriott brand. I have been a mariott customer for 15 years and sadly this will be my last time staying with any Marriott hotel.

From check in throughout my stay and final checkout, staff, maintenance, housekeeping and food service personnel were gracious and friendly and tried to accommodate to the best of their ability. Rosey (sp?), Stephanie and others at the front desk were always willing to help in anyway possible if needed.
