We stay at the Courtyard San Diego Carlsbad for a weekend. I try and come to San Diego a few time every year since its a easy drive from Phoenix. I think we may have found great hotel and even better location! We will be back to Courtyard, Thanks for making us feel at home.

We stayed here while visiting Legoland. The hotel seemed like it opened the day we arrived. The room and bathroom were immaculate. Since my husband practically lives at Marriott, it was nice to stay somewhere enjoyable. The hotel did provide wifi but I don't know if it was free to all guest. My husband is a platinum member.

Since Carlsbad is a favorite destination we have experienced lots of different hotels. When you book a 4 star hotel I don't see much difference in quality but, a 3 star can be iffy. This hotel is a 3 star and I have no complaints. We usually stay at the Sheraton and pay more but, the room we got was... More

If you have a reason to be in Carlsbad, like if you're taking your kids to Legoland, or are shopping at the Carlsbad Outlet Mall, this is a good value, and definitely close to either of those two "attractions." It is a 'Marriott, and meets their high standards.

This hotel is very close to LEGOLAND, 1.5 miles to the Premium Outlet Mall and 3 miles to the beach, so it worked perfectly for us. Relative to other hotels in Carlsbad area, this place is affordable too.
