David the chef was so helpful in the mornings, he made sure there was always more food to feed the team. If i forgot my lid he was there. No more eggs? No problem. He was always on top of everything. If there is one person who made an impression it was david the chef.

My family of five got placed here by our insurance company due to a house fire ... Been here for almost a week and despite what my family and I are going through... I would have to say that the service and hospitality has been great so far.... I'm impressed.... Especially by their food and beverage employee David... He takes pride in his job and he's been great to my teens... He made us feel like were home away from home... Thank you Residence Inn... Mr. Mark Urias

I hosted a two-day meeting at this property on Nov 5th and 6th, 2014. This is an atypical Residence Inn, with a different layout than most. Awesome lobby area and nice, spacious meeting space.

It was a pleasure to work with Vince Stubbs, Director of Sales. I was a little worried to have my meeting in San Marcos because of the location, but it was perfect and so was the hotel and staff. They went out of their way to ensure my meeting was a success and answered every call for service with a smile. If you are looking for meeting space north of San Diego (I chose this area because SD is sooooo expensive), this property is a great option!

We usually stay at a Marriott Residence Inn over the holidays in San Diego, and didn't think we could top last year's stay. Well, the San Marcos location did! Extremely friendly staff that actually seemed to want to be there!! Building is about 4 years old and still in decent shape. Nice rooms and attentive housekeeping. Everything, pool area, rooms and common areas appeared clean and well maintained. The only negative (and I'm nitpicking a bit) is the location, which forces you to drive everywhere. But, in Southern Cal. you pretty much have to drive anyhow. I highly recommend.

Room Tip: They allow dogs, so if this is a problem ask for a room not rented to pet owners!

We stayed 5 nights in early December. The front desk staff (especially Danica) was excellent, remembering names of our entire group (6 of us) and greeting us each time we passed by the desk. Danica welcomed us and checked us in, recognizing our gold status with Marriott. The room was comfortable and suited to our needs. At breakfast each morning we were greeted by David - what a wonderful young man, fully focused on his job and our enjoyment of his hard work with the great meal. When we return to San Marcos, this place is where we'll be!
