staff was very accommodating, my family and I needed a place to stay while we searched for a new house Alex, and Sean were amazing and went out of their way to make sure that all of the residents staying were taken care of.

The Residence Inn has a fantastic management team leading a phenomenal staff. All of the employees are pleasant and very professional but Alex, Parker, Justine and Shaun are always amazing.

We walked into our two bedroom suite very impressed by the bedroom sizes (they were huge!) and excited to learn that in addition to the hot buffet breakfasts each day the hotel also provided 4 evening meals/week including bbq burgers and beef hotdogs and vegetarian options on Thursday evening! The pool was also lovely and outdoor area inviting and included...

While sharing a 2-bedroom, 2 full bath suite with my wife son, daughter-in-law, and two pre-school, LEGOLAND-bound grandchildren, my son decided that we might be making money by staying here at $219/night. What with four free dinners a week, 7 breakfasts a week, free utilities, free maid service, and a daily paper -- all for a family of six, how...

Stayed one night and was very impressed. Very clean throughout. Nice location. Breakfast was totally awesome!! Plenty of room in the kitchen/living room/bathroom. Bedroom/bed was somewhat small. Make sure you check out 20/Twenty restaurant nearby.

We recently attended a conference in Carlsbad and didn't want to stay at the expensive host hotel. Therefore, we stayed at the Residence Inn and were very pleased. The front desk staff was very welcoming, professional, and happy to help with restaurant recommendations. The room was a typical Residence Inn but very upgraded and very clean. The bed was comfortable...
