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

sanglin, Thank you for the review and the kind words about me but I must defer the credit to my team.

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

LilPiggyQT, It always makes us super happy to get recognition from a senior contributor such as yourself. As you mentioned our location is central for many attractions in San Diego. I see you mentioned our shuttle in the review and mentioned you didn't know where it went since you drove. Just as an FYI we use our shuttle to take... 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. The pool area is a very decent size, with a cabana next to it and plenty of seating. We had a room on the first floor... More

Everything you would expect from a Marriott. Pool and hot tub were relaxing. Lots of outdoor seating in sun and shade. Hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. Nothing within walking distance, but lots nearby.
