I have a son who goes to school close by and this is my go to spot. Quiet, great staff right price. I like that I don't have to leave the hotel once I get there. Well stocked "to go" bar beer/wine, food to go. Coffee bar for the morning. Staff is always accommodating.

This particular Courtyard is a little tired but still very nice. One thing to keep in mind: ask for a room far, far away from the ice machine, since that thing roars like a jet engine. My only other complaint is that the vanity is tiny. No room to put your stuff. On the positive side, the guy that checked... More

Just stayed in a brand new Courtyard in San Marcos TX two weeks ago, so it was tough comparing with this one. Room was clean, comfortable, and well furnished, but definitely small and not as well appointed. I'm 6'5" but my wife is 5'4", and even she had a tough time "penguin walking" around the bed to avoid the sofa.... More

This hotel is located in the business district of Carlsbad. It is not too far from Legoland or the beaches. Lots of family with children stay here, so therefore it can be a bit noisy at times. Nice and friendly rooms. Beware of parking in the back by the trees, somehow our vehicle got attacked by sand ants. I was... More

I stayed at this hotel in early September for 3 nights. I arrived in San Diego from the east coast in the evening and the drive from the airport was long because of traffic. When I arrived at the hotel the front desk supervisor, A. Clements, welcomed me and my guest extremely graciously! She made sure we had a smooth... More

This hotel is off the beaten path in Carlsbad in a business park area that is empty at night (GPS turned us down the wrong street every time). The hotel itself is very comfortable and the location, with respect to the areas we were going to, was perfect. It is a very quick drive to Legoland and downtown Carlsbad, as... More

I booked my hotel for one night and picked the location since I had wanted to be fairly close to the San Diego Safari Park and to be also to be close to the 5 freeway. It was easy to find and close to shopping and food if you have a car. I know the hotel has a shuttle that... More

We have not normally stayed at Courtyards, but this one was really nice. It has a great lobby area, with a Starbucks, and a large lounge area, where we watched some World Cup Soccer.
