Overall, the stay was very comfortable and made me wish we had booked a longer stay. Obviously equipped for an extended stay, the room was complete with fridge, stove, microwave, pots, pans, dishes, and silverware. I'm pretty sure my own kitchen isn't as stocked :P. We had a (sidelong) view of the beach and walking there took just a few minutes. For my morning run, Pacific was accessible for beach views the entire way north to the harbor and partial beach views south to Carlsbad. Dozens of shopping and dining options were less than a mile away with two markets literally across the street. Parking was inside a small shared garage with plenty of space. We are planning another stay here soon.

San Diego has so much to offer for sightseeing, dining, weather, and relaxation. Although visiting family, we chose to stay at the Residence Inn. That meant everyone could have their own relax and refuel time for at least a few hours each day. That took the burden out of being a guest in someone else's home.
We stayed in a suite with 2 double beds and a sofa bed, over the 4th of July holiday weekend. The room was great for our family of 5, with free breakfast and good wifi, and it was nice to sit out on the balcony to read or have a cup of coffee. I did need to ask for dishwashing materials, but the front desk staff got them for us right away. There is plenty of closet and drawer space throughout the room. The hotel was within walking distance of a Whole Foods grocery store, a couple of drug stores, and several restaurants. The staff was very friendly and gave us a map of the area detailing restaurants and stores within a few blocks. It was less than a 15 minute drive to Sea World. The hotel is across the street from a hospital, so there was occasional ambulance noise, but if the windows and doors were closed it wasn't an issue for us. When we had a minor issue requiring a visit from maintenance, he arrived within minutes of our call to the front desk and fixed the problem quickly.
Overall a very nice hotel and setting. Service was very good and staff was cordial. Room was comfortable, pool was nice, location was perfect.
A few recommendations:
Have a tiki bar by the pool.
Modernize the shower heads
Parking should be less expensive
Overall we were very satisfied

Everything about the hotel was great! Right by the beach, staff was very polite, the hardwood floor in the room was much better than the usual carpet seen in most hotels. Only complaint I had was that the bed was a little too soft. It's great when just lying on it for a little. But it's tough to sleep on. Maybe just a preference thing. Everything else was such a bargain compared to other hotels! I can't recommend this place enough.
