I've stayed at this location twice in the past year and have to say that the service is definitely consistent. The rooms are large with full size refrigerators and ovens - all the comforts of home. The staff makes you feel welcome, greeting you with a hello and smile each time you walk by. I will be staying here again...

David the chef was so helpful in the mornings, he made sure there was always more food to feed the team. If i forgot my lid he was there. No more eggs? No problem. He was always on top of everything. If there is one person who made an impression it was david the chef.

I hosted a two-day meeting at this property on Nov 5th and 6th, 2014. This is an atypical Residence Inn, with a different layout than most. Awesome lobby area and nice, spacious meeting space. It was a pleasure to work with Vince Stubbs, Director of Sales. I was a little worried to have my meeting in San Marcos because of...

We usually stay at a Marriott Residence Inn over the holidays in San Diego, and didn't think we could top last year's stay. Well, the San Marcos location did! Extremely friendly staff that actually seemed to want to be there!! Building is about 4 years old and still in decent shape. Nice rooms and attentive housekeeping. Everything, pool area, rooms...

We stayed 5 nights in early December. The front desk staff (especially Danica) was excellent, remembering names of our entire group (6 of us) and greeting us each time we passed by the desk. Danica welcomed us and checked us in, recognizing our gold status with Marriott. The room was comfortable and suited to our needs. At breakfast each morning...

I recently stayed here with a family of four - 2 adults and 2 teens. We arrived at the hotel at about 4:15 pm and our room was not yet ready. We had spent the day at the Safari park and had a party to get cleaned up for and so we were fretting a bit - the rooms are...

Let me first start off by saying this is not my first rodeo in hotels as I have stayed at my fair share around the country - 5 stars, 4 stars, Resorts, etc. I don't know if I have ever left a hotel feeling like I "want" to stay in touch with the people who made being away from home...

Broken water main and the staff handled it well. Work was completed overnight. I received an ADA room that was a bit disappointing. The staff was courteous and attentive. The room was satisfactory plus. Its probably the best choice in San Marcos. Well located to highways.

“I found the road noise heard in the room on the second floor front to be unacceptable, although my husband slept right through it! The staff was able to make a quick move for us to a quieter room the next morning! No hassle.”
