We got married in San Marcos, and we worked with the Residence Inn for our Wedding Block for our many out of town guests. They were totally on top of it, they gave us a tour, they set up a website for us, and they were able to answer any questions we had. The experience was so easy especially compared...

My wife and I have been fortunate to stay at hotels across the globe. Many of them Marriott properties. I cannot be effusive enough regarding the staff and I mean the entire staff at our stay in the San Diego area. This Residence Inn's personnel were so accommodating, so helpful.

The building is well-designed and well-maintained. The rooms are spacious and clean. But what really makes this an amazing hotel is the staff. From the front desk staff to the bus boy at the complimentary evening events, every single staff member seemed to go out of his or her way to make sure that guests were well served. Frankly, it's...

Stayed here for work. The staff seems to actually like what they're doing and it shows in their super helpful attitudes. The clean, well arranged room with its mini-apartment style, evening drinks and food in the lobby, combined with excellent service made an absolute pleasure to stay here!

Loved everything about this hotel. Each and every staff member is friendly and attentive. Rooms were clean and bed super comfortable. Enjoyed the pool too! Best part of our stay was the Manager's social hour! Food and drink around the fire pit with the family was a memorable event.

I have never stayed in San Marcos but had a Football game to go to @ Palomar College. Too long of a drive home after a late night game. Made reservations and was "oh so pleasantly surprised" friendly staff, very clean, very nice accommodations. Just me and my husband. It was great. Quiet too. I will definitely come back.

The service couldn't be better. Arrived late at the end of a small dinner for guests. Staff kindly prepared some vegetarian burgers and also made an ice cream sundae for dessert. The room was very clean and represented Marriott very well. Morning breakfast was quick and fresh. Hotel conveniently located about 8 miles from the beaches along PCH.

“I found the road noise heard in the room on the second floor front to be unacceptable, although my husband slept right through it! The staff was able to make a quick move for us to a quieter room the next morning! No hassle.”
