Rooms were basic and clean. The service and staff here is exceptional. Very friendly. We stayed here while attending a wedding nearby. There was a basic complimentary breakfast included. It was very busy and crowded. Hard to find a table to sit.

..this is a great place to stay. We stayed during our road trip on 101 and 1. It's close to San Diego yet close enough to drive into and then head to a nice beach community with 10 mins drive. Service and team here were exceptional. For a hotel that mainly caters family, I didn't notice any frustration from staff....

The rooms in this place smell of something chemical, maybe its the cleaning fluid they use. They allow dogs in the rooms and I had to change rooms due to the noise of my neighbour - not the hotels fault I know but beware. Breakfast was dreadful cheap food.

The staff here at the Towneplace Suites in Vista were all great! The very first welcoming smile and interaction was beyond our expectations. House keeping was great as well.

You know how you visit a place and it is so nice, you don't want to tell others about it....but then that would be just wrong! :-) This Marriott Towneplace was one of those places.

We were just here Friday & Saturday night. Got the quiet room we requested (facing the canyon, not the parking lot; away from the elevator. So, no issues with quiet. Mini kitchen was handy; we were able to make coffee in our room, then later go down for a light breakfast. Weekends are sort of a continental breakfast w/Belgian waffles....

The service is wonderful. However, the smell of this hotel was awful. When we first walked in it overwhelmingly smelled of dog pee and pets. When I made the reservations I has asked for a first floor room but was placed on the second floor. The room was not very inviting with the smell as well as all of the...

I've stayed at plenty hotels in every state and many countries. I must say my first impression of the TOWNEPLACE was one to remember. Lucy at the front desk acted like a family member.

I stay at Marriott hotels all the time but I had a major problem with the smell in this hotel both in my room, the corridors and the elevator.... They all smelt different but non were good. I actually checked out early. I have given 2 stars purely because the staff were so nice and helpful.
