First night started off not so great! We arrived on a Friday almost midnight. The room we were supposed to get was for 4 (two adults, two small children) and have a pull out bed. There was not pullout. My 6 & 8 year old were so tired and I was pretty disappointed to have to relocate the whole family.... More

Not a bad thing to say about the room, staff , food, gym,pool, it's all exactly what you'd expect from a Courtyard. It's near the Carlsbad airport with not too much around it so don't expect to walk to dinner. Overall if you have a car and don't mine driving just a few miles to get to the beaches, food,... More

This is one of the newer model Courtyards, with an upgraded design, especially in the lobby. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, but mine suffered from a couple of flaws. The air conditioner is built into the wall in the corner, right next to the desk, not in the center of the room. So when I was working it was... More

On our way to Carlsbad we got a call that they had military families extending their stay and we needed to be moved. Anyway we accepted the offer to be moved to courtyard Marriott.

The lobby is the new Courtyard format the rooms are yet to be updated. Nice location off the road and very near the airport. Room was fine. Nice that the HVAC fan could be made to stay ON for white noise. The pillows were much too thick for my taste and the bed could use a refresh.

We stayed here for two nights during a trip to So. Cal. My dad stays here regularly for business trips. The staff was very friendly. The rooms are new and clean -- feel very fresh -- very high ceilings. The location is good -- it's tucked away, so it's quiet and is a short drive (5-10 minutes) to Legoland, the... More

This is a very nice place to stay, tucked away from noise etc,. Crawford at the front desk is amazing. He has always helped to accommodate any special needs we may have.
