Enjoyed the hotel very much. Clean and inviting. Breakfast buffet was enjoyable. Pool is outside and comfortable. Hot tub/spa was the same temperature as the pool which was depressing. I like to relax in a heated spa, not luke-warm. A few places to eat right across the parking lot. Overall, enjoyed the stay.

Location is close to many attractions: the beach, the soccer field, shopping and even the Mission! Breakfast was nice and the rooms very clean and quiet. Marriott switched out shampoo and soap to up high fixed locations - thus children cannot reach them, management was fast to correct this corporate decision, and provided these items for the kids too. Good job!

Room Tip: I enjoyed a high room

I always base my reviews off of expectations and for the price and compared to other Residence Inns I have stayed at it was just ok but definitely not worth the price tag. If it was $125 a night I would think it was awesome but it’s pushing $250/night with tax. I would stay again if there wasn’t another option but for the price I realized I could find a vacation rental and be happier. I wish they would have just been as good as the other residence inns I have stayed at.

The good: front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel was clean and plenty of amenities. The one bedroom suite was roomy and nice for an extended stay style hotel. They have nice facilities with basketball, bbq and pool. The gym was not bad.

The bad: my biggest issue was the beds. The pillows were awful and worn down it seemed. I had a hard time sleeping which is never a problem for me. The hot water didn’t work well in the shower. Seemed like a valve issue and probably a room specific problem. The breakfast is really just a standard cafeteria mass produced style of your holiday inn types except less options. The cleaning staff came at 10am one morning and we asked them to come back in an hour after we left and she said ok but then asked if we really needed it cleaned and told us that it’s really hard to go up another floor and come back to our room again. We politely asked for her to come back and she obliged and the room was clean and towels refreshed.

We had a flood in our home and we needed to stay somewhere close to home and that had a kitchen.
This hotel has Benin a wonderful surprise.
They are very family friendly. They have a pool, tennis court and basketball. It kept the kids very entertained and a great workout.
Breakfast was outstanding (which is included),
We also used the washer and dryer facilities, they even have a laundry basket in the closet to use. Ingenious!
We’ll be sending our out of town guest to stay at The Residence Inn.

We stayed here while visiting family who live in the area. The hotel is located fairly close to stores and restaurants.The breakfast in the morning was pretty good, but did lack in variety. We had a two-bedroom suite as my parents were staying with my wife, my son, and myself. The setup was great as it allowed us to retire to our respective bedrooms whenever we needed to do so (very helpful since our 3 year old had a very early bedtime). All things considered I would stay here again. No real wows, but very accommodating for a family.
