Positive Reviews

Quiet Location

A few people have commented on enjoying a peaceful stay at this hotel. Despite the close proximity to a major university, noise levels are not an issue according to satisfied guests.

So Close to UCSD

Travelers who need to visit the University of California San Diego (UCSD) find that the Residence Inn San Diego La Jolla is a convenient location that gets them there in no time.

Awesome Free Breakfast

Starting the morning with a warm, hearty meal seems to have brightened a few people's day. Not only do many guests find the food tasty, they love it even more because it's free.

Negative Reviews

A Tad Musty

There have been a few occurrences when guests felt that their rooms were a little musty. Fortunately, a new renovation of the rooms will definitely fix that problem.

Problematic Parking

It seems that most people are not fans of first-come, first-serve parking in a small lot. Plus, paying for onsite parking is another turnoff. The upside is that it is possible to park on the surrounding streets if you're lucky to find a free space.

Short on Staff

On several occasions, a few guests have found that the hotel could use extra help at the front desk and breakfast time when it gets really busy.
