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

Stayed at the Courtyard the night before our visit to Lego Land which is close by. Hotel lobby is large and nicely decorated. Check in was easy, staff was very accommodating and friendly.

My family and I stayed at the Courtyard in Carlsbad over the weekend and we were very disappointed. We were in town to celebrate my mother-in-law's 70th birthday. At check-in we decided to get a coffee in the bistro- we were the only people there and waited 15 minutes and then asked about it. they forgot to make them! The... More

Dear Springercrazy, Thank you for your review of our Courtyard Carlsbad. I want to sincerely apologize for the delays and serious missed opportunities we had in our Bistro during your stay.

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.

I stayed for three nights on a business trip and found the room comfortable. Not the hotel's fault but my fellow residents were extremely noisy at night and I even had to call reception one night. The hotel handled the issue very efficiently and visited the guests to ask them to keep the noise down. You really need a car... More

I have a son who goes to school close by and this is my go to spot. Quiet, great staff right price. I like that I don't have to leave the hotel once I get there. Well stocked "to go" bar beer/wine, food to go. Coffee bar for the morning. Staff is always accommodating.

This particular Courtyard is a little tired but still very nice. One thing to keep in mind: ask for a room far, far away from the ice machine, since that thing roars like a jet engine. My only other complaint is that the vanity is tiny. No room to put your stuff. On the positive side, the guy that checked... More

Just stayed in a brand new Courtyard in San Marcos TX two weeks ago, so it was tough comparing with this one. Room was clean, comfortable, and well furnished, but definitely small and not as well appointed. I'm 6'5" but my wife is 5'4", and even she had a tough time "penguin walking" around the bed to avoid the sofa.... More

This hotel is located in the business district of Carlsbad. It is not too far from Legoland or the beaches. Lots of family with children stay here, so therefore it can be a bit noisy at times.
