I stayed here for 4 nights in July 2015 to spend time with my family on my Grandson's 1st visit to Legoland (he's 4) and the San Diego Zoo. Very nice hotel in a quiet area , but within 5 minutes driving to Legoland Good attentive staff. My room was clean and just humongous! Like a mini apartment. I could... More

Hotel was a typical Courtyard but WiFi was dreadful - it measured at about 150kbps or about dial-up speed. In its zest for promoting 'premium' WiFi, Marriott has throttled back the free service to the point that they have throttled me from staying at Courtyards in the future.

We stayed at this hotel, to go to Legoland (the Legoland Hotel was soldout). It is just a couple of miles from the park, but you would need a car to get there. Also need a car to get to nearby restaurants. The hotel staff were all very nice, and there is a restaurant downstairs open for breakfast (including buffet),... More

We booked a room through Expedia, but our family needed a couple special accommodations upon arrival. These guys were amazingly helpful and friendly, and made our stay a very enjoyable one. A great place to stay close to the beach and Legoland. Lots of fun!

Great hotel and wonderful staff - solid Marriott material. I would absolutely recommend this hotel if you are in the area. Nice rooms, comfortable beds, and very clean as well. If you are going to Legoland, look no further.

Stayed one night for a trip to Legoland. Close driving distance to legoland and restaurants. Location is quiet during the weekend. Not sure about the weekdays as we only stayed over the weekend. it is well maintained and kept very clean. Would definitely stay again.

Had a great stay! Stopped in the little bar for a drink and Alex was fantastic making the drinks! Room was spacious and nice. A bit noisy that evening because of a couple youth teams staying in the hotel. The staff was keeping an eye on it tho! Will stay there again!

For years, Marriott Courtyards have been good places to stay, especially when traveling alone on a business trip. But -- now they are slipping. Breakfast is not nearly as good as it used to be -- getting rather tasteless, as are the pastries. The food needs the touch of a good chef. Then there is WiFi -- advertised as free.... More
