A simple, no frills hotel. They did have free cookies at check-in though. The room was basic, but did have a patio. I do like the king bed with sofa sleeper option these hotels offer, as they fit our family needs more than the double queen option. Service wasn't bad, but we had to wait a while for the crib...

My kids enjoyed staying the Carlsbad Courtyard Mariott. The staff was friendly and the hotel was clean. After a long day at the park (Lego Land) my kids looked forward to having a swim in the pool. We will definitely be staying there during our next trip to San Diego.

I had some Business in the area and decided to go more budget on this trip so I selected the courtyard marriott because I have liked a couple others a lot. This is right near the Palomar Airport and also convenient to the beaches. Legoland, the outlets. Just needed a clean and comfortable hotel. It was exactly that. They had... More

We stayed here for two nights for a wedding. The hotel and guest rooms are clean and modern; you can tell they work diligently to maintain the property. It is located within a few minutes of the Pacific Ocean, The Crossings at Carlsbad, Legoland and The Flower Fields.

Stayed here five days while visiting our daughter. It was clean and quiet and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was tasty except for the coffee but there was a Starbucks a block away so we were happy. Staff was friendly.

We stay at the Courtyard San Diego Carlsbad for a weekend. I try and come to San Diego a few time every year since its a easy drive from Phoenix. I think we may have found great hotel and even better location! We will be back to Courtyard, Thanks for making us feel at home.

We stayed here while visiting Legoland. The hotel seemed like it opened the day we arrived. The room and bathroom were immaculate. Since my husband practically lives at Marriott, it was nice to stay somewhere enjoyable. The hotel did provide wifi but I don't know if it was free to all guest. My husband is a platinum member.

Since Carlsbad is a favorite destination we have experienced lots of different hotels. When you book a 4 star hotel I don't see much difference in quality but, a 3 star can be iffy.

If you have a reason to be in Carlsbad, like if you're taking your kids to Legoland, or are shopping at the Carlsbad Outlet Mall, this is a good value, and definitely close to either of those two "attractions." It is a 'Marriott, and meets their high standards.
