Nice Hotel Central to all spots in San Diego. The staff was very friendly and helpful for places to eat. Rooms were clean and inexpensive. Not brand new but decent. Breakfast was free and decent only complaint is that TV remotes didn't work that well. Other than that its a good place to stay

GROUNDS: fair parking, well kempt, clean enough. Feels like living in an apartment complex. Lobby with eating area for breakfast is good enough. LOCATION: Centrally located next to the 163, and little more than a mile away from the 15 or the 805. Close to many restaurants, and Convoy Street (which is like an Asian business haven). Also, within a...

I just spent the last 2 weeks at this Residence Inn by Marriott. I was impressed, especially with how quick to everywhere I wanted to go - whether Mission Bay, Old Towne, the Navy bases, the Zoos, or the new Downtown area, everything was within 20 minutes. Good food was only blocks away if you wanted to go out, but...

This review is long overdue. I stayed here for my daughter's graduation last year. I used to work for Marriott and my husband works for Westin and we've never seen a hotel like this one. We loved the layout (Condo/Apartment style). The rooms are spacious! We got the 2 bedroom suite and I couldn't believe how huge it was. It...

Have been staying here for 2 weeks now. Its clean, breakfast is good, coffee is great, and employees are the best. Very helpful and always with a smile. Every time I've asked for assistance they've been more than willing to point me in the right direction.
