“Great place to stay”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Thank you for a great staff, Robert, Rhonda, Michelle, Liz? Lupe and everyone else who was so attentive and personable while I stayed for 55 days at your hotel due to relocating to San Diego. They made you feel at home and were all extremely helpful. I would recommend this hotel for anyone coming to the area for extended or short stay. You are close to everything, beach, shopping, eateries, the city.

Room Tip: pick the top floor. i had a corner room and never heard anyone except the footsteps on top of me.

We stayed here for a 3 night leisure stay on award nights. This hotel has a lot of long-term residents and it's impossible to get a choice of a good room. We were stuck with a handicap studio room that had a very odd layout. The bathroom door did not close shut and can't be locked. The storage is a large cabinet that takes up valuable space in the small room. There is no cabinet or closet in the bathroom like other residence inn rooms. We enjoyed the free breakfasts and free dinners on Monday-Wednesday nights. That was a huge cost savings to not have to spend money on those meals for the family. When i first arrived on Sunday Mar 2nd to check in at about 5 pm it took about 10 minutes before someone finally showed up at the front desk to help me. That wasn't a good first impression at all since 5 pm is a typical check in time I expected someone to be there waiting for customers. We however had a fantastic experience with the front desk the next morning (Monday Mar 3rd) when the lady noticed our 2 crazy little boys and offered them a treat from the market to help make them happier. That was extremely thoughtful to offer that and helped us enjoy the rest of the day out exploring the city. I'm sorry I don't remember the employee's name but hopefully the dates will help you look up who was working and you can let them know how much we appreciated that.

Dear ace897,

Thank you for your recent stay with us and providing some feedback. I apologize about your arrival experience, certainly not the first impression we would want to give our guest and it is something for us to focus on moving forward. I was happy to hear that you had a good experience with Miglena as she helped prepare your family for a fun day of sightseeing. Please reach out to me the next time your travels bring you to San Diego and you are interested in staying at our hotel.

I have stayed at a lot of Residence Inn's over the years and around the country and this is one of the best. Everything about it was excellent from the customer service to the rooms. If you're looking for a really good hotel in this area definitely stay here.

A major highlight of our trip to the USA in December 2013 was staying at the Residence Inn Del Mar over Christmas.
It put the other hotels we stayed at completely to shame.
The staff were lovely, beautifully appointed rooms in mini apartment style.
Breakfast was very good and the complimentry light meal and drinks on week nights created a really nice sense of community for everyone staying there.
Also its just minites away from a quality supermarket and in a very safe, clean, quality suburb.
Save yourself time and book your stay here... you will not regret it, I wished we could have been based there for our whole vacation.
All the best to staff and management at the Residence Inn Del Mar.

From the housekeepers to the front desk, everyone I encountered during my 2 week stay was extremely professional and very pleasant. Amber, Michelle, Liz and Miglena worked as hard as I have seen any hotel staff and contributed to a most enjoyable stay. Literally, it seemed as if nothing would be too much trouble and I witnessed each of them going out of their way to make sure the guests had what they needed.

This is a new Residence Inn that is conveniently located and very we'll managed. Customer service is superior as expected from a Marriott property. Our room was clean and very we'll appointed. From the manager to the maintenance man, their focus was the customer and making our stay memorable. The breakfast staff was helpful and very pleasant as we'll. We can not say enough about our stay at this Residence Inn. We would highly recommend it and will stay there anytime we are in the area. Thanks Casey for a great stay and for you and your staff going above and beyond.

EVERYONE that works there is so friendly and helpful. All very easily approachable and genuine. They put a crib in our room for our 8 month old baby and checked on us to see if it was acceptable. Breakfast was great and always plentiful.
