“Great value, prime location, family oriented”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

I stayed here for two nights in Oct 2012. It was very clean and in much nicer condition than most hotels in "hotel circle". We were 3 miles from SeaWorld. With parking, tax, resort fee, etc my rate that felt reasonable ended up at $365 all-in. However, we got free full hot breakfast buffet both days that is easily worth $10/person. Each night there is also a 90-minute happy hour with free beer and wine, soda, etc complete with football and pool table, area to hang out. Kids play area as well. The staff was extremely friendly at every interaction. Would definitely recommend this place for a family stay.

We are close to many of San Diego’s famous attractions, like the world famous zoo, Sea World, and all the beautiful beaches to name a few and it sounds like you and your family got to explore the city to your liking. We look forward to your next visit to San Diego.

Close to airport, Sea World, and the Zoo.
Free breakfast for all in your group every morning including eggs, meats, toast/bagels, cereal, sometimes make your own waffles, coffee, tea, juice
Has cool 2 bedroom suites with a king bed in one room and bunk beds in another room!
Excellent value and choice for a family.
Set back off the road a bit more than most of the other hotels on Hotel Circle so it's quieter. Ask for a back or pool view room too and they will try to accomodate.

Thank you for taking the time to review my hotel on Trip Advisor. It is nice to hear that you were able to take advantage of the great location of the hotel to go out and explore the wonderful charm San Diego has to offer. The kid’s suite we offer is perfect for our families and the bunks beds are always a winner in the kid’s eyes. We hope that you and your family are able to visit our lovely city again and will look us up for all your accommodating needs.

This hotel was the best. The rooms were spacious, the breakfast generous and they even had a complimentary dinner and free drinks between six and seven thirty PM. The location is very convenient , on the hotel circle, five minutes drive from old town, 10 minute drive to sea world, and 15 minute drive to La Jolla. If you are in San Diego stay here!

Room Tip: A pool view would be nice all rooms are good though

We stayed here with our 5-year-old during our family vacation to Sea World. All we wanted was a suite with a separate bedroom (so we could stay up after our daughter went to bed) and a free breakfast. We got so much more!! The breakfast was excellent and the breakfast room was huge, so there was plenty of space to move around. There's also a little eating area for the kids, which my daughter loved (with a TV that plays kiddie shows)...she made quite a few friends during our stay (one of the highlights of her vacation!). They even had activities for the kids like game night and movie night with snacks in the same area. In addition, the M-TH manager's reception was more than just the standard free drinks and buffalo wings ...it was a full meal! Meatloaf and mashed potatoes, hamburgers, you name it... It saved us a lot of money and we really enjoyed ourselves. For people without kids, the bar area is close by but separate and pretty much kid-free. As for the room, the small two bedroom suite is where we stayed. It had a bunk bed with a flat screen for our daughter, plus another king bedroom with a flat screen and a family room with a flat screen and a full kitchen. Price was reasonable and the room was very clean and modern. Staff was great...manager was a hoot! We plan to stay again whenever we visit SeaWorld.

We have just recently stayed at the residence inn and I would have to say it was a great stay !! The rooms are a good size, beds very comfortable and it's great to have a kitchen in the room. The pool and spa are also a plus ! The breakfast each morning that is provided was nice and a good range of food is available. Some nights they also have complimentary dinner for the guests which was also nice ! We would definately recommend the residence in. To anyone staying in San Diego it is also very family friendly and everyone was polite and great customer service

My husband and I have stayed in many Residence Inn properties over the years. There is a certain standard that we expect. This property exceed our expectations to the point that we needed to rate it! Stay here if you are in the San Diego area. Easy on/off to Route 5, fabulous service and hospitality, clean, fresh and comfy. It appears that all the staff love their jobs...good job management !

Found our room to be quite comfortable and clean. Nice livingroom/kitchen area and separate bedroom. Staff very friendly and quick to attend to requests. Breakfast was very good. Good value for the price. Parking spaces were tight and if you come in late, hard to find. Would definitely stay here again.
