Check it Out! “Residence Inn by Marriott San Diego La Jolla” Explicit Review

Marriott's "Residence Inn San Diego La Jolla" is an inexpensive hotel near the racetracks which was where I wanted to go. La Jolla is one of the calmest tourist destinations in San Diego, so I chose this hotel because it has good access to the highway and other locations. As a result, it was convenient to get to the racetrack of Delmar, horse racing & concerts and downtown Petco Park. In addition to a room with a kitchen, a living room and a bedroom, it is the size that can be used to call friends and you can still have privacy among each other.

Environment around the hotel

The area around the hotel is totally safe as there is the University of San Diego. Just because it’s not downtown, the restaurants close early and if you go to the restaurant late you have to drive a little ways. There is a big shopping mall behind the hotel and I bought beer and water snacks at the supermarket. I saw many people exercising outside in the morning and I think it is a perfect area for running and biking. I didn’t see any beggars on the streets. There are many people entering and leaving the hotel during the day, but it was quiet at night.

Staff and customer base

The staffs were always friendly, asking me if I need anything. I had a lot of conversations at the front check-in. When I asked for an additional hangers, they were delivered immediately.

Most of the hotel guests were on summer vacation with their families and children. It may be because it is neat Sea World. In addition, there were many guests with cars  and are familiar with the area.


I had a very nice stay at this hotel. First of all, they upgraded my room and informed me  in advance, so I was able to invite a couple of friends. In addition, it was good that each of us could enjoy comfortably while keeping privacy. Also, thanks to the kitchen in the room, I was able to make simple meals even after coming back from the concert in the middle of the night. I was able to have a relaxing time at the pool, jacuzzi, and various place is in the hotel, and it was nice because we were not in a rush at all.
