One of the best Marriott properties we've staid at. Very clean, great service, comfortable bed, great room. The staff were friendly, professional, and provided terrific service. The scrambled eggs each morning, part of the complimentary breakfast, were cooked exactly how scrambled eggs should be! We will stay there again, when in San Marcos, CA.

Our suites are a hit with families; they offer full kitchenettes, up to 2 full bedrooms, complimentary wifi, breakfast and free parking. What's not to love? Hope to see your family again soon.

We loved the specious room and bathroom. Staff was very friendly. The location off freeway is very convenient. Breakfast was great. The only con was that the room was right above a busy street and traffic noise could be heard at night.

Nice kitchen and sitting area. Bed was too soft and comfortable. Dirty carpet and sticky bathroom floor.

Good value 45 mins from downtown San Diego

Pros: Staff was professional and friendly. Fantastic breakfast and kitchenette. Beds, sofa were comfortable. Nice large screen TV and fireplace.
Cons: Get keycard system repaired. TV in the bedroom in Room 201 doesn't seem to work.
Location: About 45 minutes from downtown San Diego and less than that from nice beaches. There's a train across the street that goes right to the beach.
Nicely appointed room with helpful, friendly staff and fantastic breakfast. Carpet was a bit shabby in the room, but everything else was top notch. They were having a very frustrating problem with the card keys when we were there; some cards didn't work at all, some worked after 5-10 tries. Pool is small but clean and heated. They have a Dessert Night that is a lovely idea, but not well-executed--very few offerings, and presentation along the lines of a bad church potluck.

Very Friendly Place

Pros: I liked the location. We were visiting family in Vista, so it was right down the road. Also very close to Oceanside.
Cons: We did run out of hot water in the shower. That affected my husband more than it did me. He was a good sport about it.
Location: There seemed to be lots of dining options. Oceanside is a short drive down the freeway.
We asked for an early check in as we were going to be gone most of the afternoon and back a little late. The front desk was very accommodating and very friendly. The room was clean and cute. I wish we stayed more than one night, I could have put the kitchen to use. There was some traffic noise as it is close to the freeway, but it was not too bad. I would recommend this place and would stay there again without hesitation.

Great Hotel and Staff

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, clost to great boogie boarding
Linda and Steve were outstanding. Steve even gave us a cooler to use when we went to the beach. Linda should receive a bonus for being so nice also informative. The breakfast was great. They had a welcome BBQ that was great. Beer also. Great ribs and chicken. Man I love this place. The rooms were very clean. I was hear for a wedding and planning to come for vacation next year. Perfect location to go boogie boarding, going to track to going to great restarents like Fish Hous Vera Cruz.

Great place for multiple nights.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
This hotel is great for multiple nights and business trip because the rooms have their own kitchen. The room was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was also great, I recommend being there when it starts as things run out, but I was able to enjoy a toasted bagel, eggs, bacon and sausage with juice before spending the day at the San Diego Safari Park which is very close by.

We stayed at this location for 10 nights during October 2017. We were not completely happy with our first room as it was facing street side with more traffic but the staff was very happy to accommodate and find another room for us. We were very happy with our room, it was up to date, clean and it offered a lot of space for my husband, myself and our 5 year old son. We had a kitchenette in our room which was fabulous for preparing meals and lunches for the day. Daily room service was available but not always full service necessary. The daily breakfast was amazing - super friendly staff and satisfying meal to begin the day. We utilized the laundry facility also. The location was perfect, San Marcos provided all needs within a 2-4 minute car ride and is about a 25-30 minute car ride to DT San Diego, 20 minutes to Legoland, it is the perfect central location. Over all, we had an amazing stay in this clean, friendly location (this staff is AMAZING) and will return to this same location if in the future we visit San Diego again in the future.
