Stayed here 10 days, will be back. Did have some challenges with a few room issues across the colleagues that where with me (room key issues, ants immediately follow a large rain, and worst probably was the boiler explosion which left my colleague stranged in the shower), but considering these concerns, the majority of the front desk folks were very...

Stayed here 3 nights in 2017 with my family. If it wasn't for some staff that were courteous and their great breakfast, this place would get just 1 star. Good thngs that happened: courteous and responsive front desk. Good breakfast buffet. Bad things that happened: (1) Ants in the kitchen, livingroom and bathroom, (2) NO crib (though on their website,...

I travel a lot for business and I absolutely loved this hotel. The most amazing thing about it was its staff. In the true sense of the word, they were friendly and they made me feel at home, after an eventful journey from Australia. In particular, I wish to thank Glena for all her kindness and thoughtfulness. In addition, other...

I am very picky about hotels and cleanliness is my most important factor. I found this hotel very clean (not perfect, but significantly better than most) and the service was outstanding. Housekeeping did a lovely job and the breakfast bar staff were friendly, helpful, and kind. I really like the residential feel. I highly recommend the hotel. Very conveniently located...

We stayed here for one week and felt at home here. Each unit is like a small condo and we chose to stay on the second level. It was mostly quiet during our stay. Having the small kitchen in our unit was very helpful and at least as good, if not better, than I would have expected. The staff seemed...

My son and I stayed at the Residence while he participated in a tournament and we toured UCSD. The room was very comfortable, and everything worked well in the kitchen. Conveniently, there was a supermarket within a five minute walk. The only bone to pick was the parking fee, it was a little excessive.

I travel a lot for work and this is convenient to one of our offices. I am a huge fan of residence inns since they are comfortable, offer free breakfast and are pet friendly.
