Avoid this place at all costs! Have you ever saw your door open when you returned to your hotel? Well, Courtyard Marriott's maids are dumb heads. The business in this hotel is very bad. The maids leave your door open after they clean your room. The staff are very mean and not accommodating. Stay away from this mean hotel! Why... More

I spent a week at this Courtyard, and it was exactly what I expected from a Courtyard. It is conveniently located near the Carlsbad airport, but I never heard planes coming and going. My room was nice, and so was the staff. There isn't any food within walking distance, so you'll need a car if you want to do anything... More

The building and rooms were clean, modern, comfortable, and inviting with an abundance of amenities. But the service was TOPS! Young staff had the attentiveness of hospitality employees with much more experience. We were highly impressed. We even had car trouble (which is not the responsibility of the hotel!) and Elia and Marina were very accommodating of our unexpected hassle.... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel on a visit to Legoland with our grandson. The location was very convenient, especially when nap time interrupted our visit to the park. We were able to return to the park to complete our day with a well-rested 3 year old. We very much enjoyed the swimming pool and the room was very... More

Easy to get to, easy to park, centrally located with easy access to all directions. Close to the beach and restaurants as well. Typical Courtyard with all your normal expectations of a good Courtyard met. Good service and a great value. Selling point is location and access. Highly recommend as a great choice in the Carlsbad Oceanside area.

This was a great place to stage our outings to LEGOLAND. The room is typical Courtyard with very comfortable beds and nice linens. Check in was a snap and the property is very quiet and relaxing.

Decided to try a different Marriott in No. San Diego County and really enjoyed our stay here! The beds here are super comfy...better than Fairfield Inn & Residence Inn beds. The room had nice high ceilings and plenty of room but wasn't a fan of only 1 sink in bathroom and the TV was too small for the room. Otherwise,... More

The management needs to recognize Breanne at the front desk for being an amazing asset. A pure pleasure in solving the smallest issue. I highly recommend this property especially with professionals like Breanne working there! Safe travels! You'll enjoy the experience at the Courtyard.
