I also work at a hotel. And I just want to say how cordial, friendly and professional Sarah and Lawrence were on Thursday 5/25/17! I had to drop off flowers from an event I Captained the night before, but then also had to retrieve some of the flower arrangements back! Sarah and Lawrence absolutely saved me!!! Top shelf customer service!

The room is clean, functional and pleasant. Good kitchen with modern appliances and large refrigerator. The room is pleasant but not fancy. The bathroom is small but has a great shower with plenty of water pressure and there is a separate sink and dressing area. The staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. The facilities are well maintained. The complementary breakfast...

I was staying in a king bed apartment. It was very clean and spacious. Modern furniture. They also offer free breakfast and Wifi. There isn't much choice in the breakfast menu but its very good given its free :). They over charge for water if you want to have bottled water, $4.50 for a 1L bottle, so be sure to...

Dear p_cheraghi, Thank you so much for staying with us in our "clean and modern" Residence Inn La Jolla! I love that you described your room as a king bed apartment - we really like our spacious suites and know they are much more than just a typical hotel room. We do have some close proximity shopping (walking distance or...

Spent a long weekend at the Residence Inn in La Jolla. The hotel is value if you get a good rate, but you get what you pay for in San Diego. It is not up to Marriott standards, behind other Residence Inns I have stayed.

I would say this is an average Residence Inn property. The rooms are nice and large and amenities decent. My room was right next to the parking lot which presented an issue in the evening, with many cars pulling in/out and a good deal of noise outside. The property could definitely use a face lift overall, but the location is...

The only good thing about this place is its location near UCSD. The service is poor. They advertise free wifi but it does not work. If you want one that works, you need to pay extra. They also advertise free breakfast but they tell you right there when you check in that if you come after 8AM you will be...

Dear Yaron H, I am so sorry to hear that our service during your stay was below expectation.

This location is very convenient to La Jolla, Torrey Pines and probably half way between Lego Land and Sea World. Very family friendly and pleasant staff. The morning breakfast was plentiful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Not a five star hotel but definitely adequate and well maintained.

This hotel is located in a relatively quiet part of La Jolla, and especially at night you do not hear much car noise (except occasional cars that go way over speed limit). It is a good hotel and would have given it 4-stars, but when I pay over $200 per night for a room, I expect something very special when...
