Check it Out! “Residence Inn by Marriott San Diego North/San Marcos” Explicit Review

I chose "Residence Inn San Diego North San Marcos" to accompany my husband on his business trip. This area has two large universities, and when I stopped by before, I had the impression that it was a beautiful residential area. Speaking of San Diego, Gas Lamp and downtown are major tourist spots, but North San Diego has a laid-back atmosphere, and for me who is staying at the hotel without any plans, I often went around supermarkets and shopping centers.

The staff were very normal. The staff working at the breakfast room seemed a little rough.

Children from Hawaii’s soccer tournament were staying. Parents and coaches were friendly and nice to talk to. Others guests were mainly tourists. The hotel rooms were fully booked when I stayed.


The hotel was located near the highway and there were many shops around. My purpose was to enjoy the local business trip, so it was very convenient. I got excited about going to a theme park to finally be able to visit WinCo Foods, a family store. In addition, there was NORDSTROM and access to other local shops were good.

WinCo Foods.


I had a very enjoyable stay. There was an organic market near the hotel, and it was fun to walk in and look around. I tasted nuts and so on and bought them a little by little. It was also nice to have dinner at the BBQ grill. Before check-in, I went to the supermarket, bought meat, prepared it in the kitchen in the room, took it down and enjoyed it. When I was doing BBQ in the courtyard, I was able to walk to many guests. The next day, I worked out at the gym, swam in the pool, and had a good time.
