“Best breakfast selection”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

While on a golf vacation into the Fallbrook - Rancho Bernardo area, we had a large number of Marriott affiliated options. Being a Marriott time-share owner and Marriott Rewards member, we always opt for a Marriott property, but had not yet stayed at a Residence Inn. We were not surprised to find the normal Marriott friendliness and courtesy and were rewarded with a happy hour and great breakfast prior to or round of golf.

Room Tip: Our room right next to the elevator was comfortable and quiet.

The hospitality industry is full of many choices. This hotel stands out as one of the best. The rooms are large and arranged to allow comfortable long term stays.
The staff are very nice and go out of their way to make your stay very special.

Check-in process was great. Four of us came in at the same time just before 7:00. Theresa was very friendly and got us all situated and immediately let us know that the evening social was about to end. We all got a beer before heading to our to rooms. Room is very spacious with a good desk for work (wired and wireless internet).
Will definately come.

There's nothing better than checking in just in time for happy hour. And the room was very clean and very nice. One of the best Residence Inns I've stayed in ever, and I've stayed in quite a few. I'llbe back, rhat's for sure.

Thank you for the hospitality and service, it was second to none!!! I arrived at the hotel to check in early (I certainly was not expecting accommodations early) and to my surprise was accommodated with a perfect clean room. I was definitely treated as a valued customer. Everyone that I met was curtious and had a warm smile. My accommodations were excellent and I will be back..... Great job!!!

Thank you!!!

This vintage Residence Inn is located just off I-15 at Carmel Mountain Road. Turn north-east and then an immediate right at the sign for Carl’s Jr. We stayed here four days while visiting with family nearby and were not disappointed. What sets this property apart from the others is it’s a small family like-operated property, top end clean, outstanding service and well maintained.

Ketan, our host, was accommodating at check-in and really meant it when he said he would take care of anything we needed. Because it was spring-break time, we signed a promise not to hold parties in the room.

Our room on the third floor featured a bedroom separate from the kitchen and sitting area. There was a well appointed bath, with appreciated details like fans and water pressure. The kitchen was equipped with updated appliances. We had a cute balcony off the bedroom accessed through a slider door for enjoying fresh air. Our morning breakfast was as good as it gets at Residence Inn. The food offerings were fresh and the area was constantly policed and kept in order.

Whether in the area for business or with the family, this Residence Inn deserves your business.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony on the top floor.

I stayed at this location for a business trip in early April. I've been to this location several times before over the past 10 years; it is convenient, reasonably priced, and close to the freeway, mall, restaurants, banks, etc. Even though it was near to the freeway I-15 I was not bothered by traffic noise; the rooms are well insulated. There are movie theatres nearby (about 20 minutes walk) and a gas station/convenience store acoss the street from the lobby. The bed was comfortable and no trouble with getting hot water. Cable channel selection is reasonable. Breakfast selection is a little bit limited but the price is right [free; included in the room price]. I will return next time I am in the area.

Room Tip: Arrive early to improve your chances of getting a room in the gatehouse or adjacent buildings (1 - 4...
