Stayed in the penthouse suite NYE with my husband and 8 and 4 year old kids $189 with AAA. Super comfy spacious stay. First floor: 1 bedroom king bed, full bath, tv, desk and doors that close off the living space, living space has a pull out sofa bed, tv, fireplace (buy a lot from lobby) and full kitchen. Second floor: stairs (steep, but ok for 3/4 yo with stair railing, there is a nightlight along steps to guide when lights are off) lead up to open lofted space. There is a queen bed with a good amount of space on each side (if more small kids need to sleep in the floor). The loft is super cool, but for my kids that like to jump on the bed we saw it as dangerous so we didn't allow playing on the bed. There is also a full bad in the lofted space, very clean and convenient. Hope this helps.

Great Location and the staff did a nice job. However this Residence inn is wore out. The furniture there is the same when we stayed there 17 years ago and looks very worn. We averaged over $300.00 a night for this stay, not worth the money we spent each night of our stay.

If you need an affordable apartment style room with full kitchen and a huge breakfast buffet each morning then this is your place. They have coffee available round the clock in the lobby, which I appreciated, but would've enjoyed a rotation of hot dishes at breakfast as every day it was the same thing. The rooms themselves are more like an apartment than a hotel, in general this is a good thing, except in the bathrooms. The bathrooms reminded me of an 1980's style apartment; limited space, basic tub and toilet. This location could use a refresh around the property to fix things like chipped paint and aging benches. Staff were very friendly and seemed to really enjoy their jobs.

I was visiting the UCSD campus and was recommended to stay at this property. It was quite close to the campus and there are restaurants within about a 10 minute walk. The property itself was similar to other Residence Inns that I have stayed in over the years. I had a studio style room towards the back end of the property. Parking was a little tight when I was there so I ended up parking some distance from my room - well, it appeared to be some distance in the dark and I did not walk the most efficient route. Breakfast the next morning was filling. They do have a fitness center that is on the second floor of the main building. I had to make a couple of odd turns to get there. Not a lot - a couple of bikes, treadmill, etc. They have an open, breakfast bar area with some good choices. I'd stay here again.

The Residence Inn has the best breakfast bar. A huge selection of foods. Waffle bar, oatmeal bar, just an endless array of choices.

The furniture in the room was a little dated, however everything was clean. The only problem we had on arrival was finding our room and a parking space. Once learning the set up, it was easy to get to the lobby area. The room offered a huge king size bed and pull out sofa.

The grounds had a lot of bird of paradise plants. This is something we don't see a lot in Virginia.
