I flew to San Diego for an event for 24 hours and opted to stay at this location of Marriott's Residence Inn because of its close location to the airport. I really enjoyed this property. The front desk staff were exceptional and were very attentive to what I needed for my brief stay. The room was very clean with a...

The location of this hotel is perfect. We walked to so many nearby sites and restaurants. The convenience to Little Italy was probably our very favorite. We stayed with our friends who accompanied us in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath suite which was perfect. Other than a couple of minor bathroom maintenance issues and the heating/AC thermostat being a bit...

From the moment we checked in, Lauren made us feel welcomed. Free upgrade in room was a nice surprise. There was a free grill dinner on Tuesday night. Hamburgers and hot dogs with all the trimmings with Stella Artois and Bud Light. :) The manager, Steve, was also welcoming and friendly. Small problem with room door opening but John Aaron...

You can't beat the location. I have stayed here multiple times and like the convenience to downtown, Coronado and Little Italy. The staff are always helpful. Lauren is great. I read reviews about the breakfast, bed and overall rooms. I did not have that experience at all. The rooms were spacious, clean and the bed was comfortable for a queen...

Rooms were dated but OK. Fittings were ok. Bed reasonably comfortable. There was no safe. Breakfast was singularly dreadful - self service on plastic plates, forgery poor quality food in a crowded lounge

Residence Inn's quality has always been very consistent within the Marriott chain. Every time we stay with them, we always have good impression of the hotel.
