This hotel was recommended by the client I was visiting. Very good choice, quiet hotel located not far off the highway, easy to find. I was able to check in earlier than I had stated in my Mobil checkin. Staff is super friendly from the front desk to Jordan in the Bistro, who was kind and smiling! The housekeeping staff... More

Had a nice stay. I thought being next to the Palomar airport, there would be a lot of noise, but it was quiet inside. The staff was very helpful and friendly. At the end of the day, there is a plate of cookies at the front desk to welcome hungry travelers. I didn't have one problem there.

If you plan to go to a Marine Graduation,this location was good for me. In bad traffic 30 minutes tops if your attending the early activities. The staff here was exceptional... (Richard) They made fresh hot cookies of different types every evening. I loved this location! Very clean place to stay.

My daughter and I stayed here one night. We only live 40 miles away, but she was playing in a hockey tournament (Icetown Carlsbad is 1 mile away) and had a 10am game on one of the days followed by a 7am game and a 2pm game the next day. It made sense for us to have a place to... More

Stayed here for a 3 day anniversary weekend with my family. Warm welcome by the staff. Unfortunately when we got to the room, our pillows had dry blood stain on it. Tried calling the front desk and housekeeping but the phone was not working either. I had to walk to the front desk about the issues. The staff was apologetic... More

Stayed here for 3 nights while we visited Legoland. Nice hotel ... clean and staff is friendly. There are not any restaurants or shops within walking distance from this hotel, but that was ok because we had a rental car. Really close to Legoland -- 2 miles or so. My husband and son went swimming and thought the pool area... More

The Courtyard was a clean, smooth running operation. The staff was very friendly & professional. The property is located within driving distance of all the popular San Diego locations. This is not a location to select if you do not have a vehicle. It is not within walking distance of anything, nor would a taxi be economical. The location saves... More

Stayed here for two nights as it was just 2 miles from Legoland. It had a hot tub and pool, both which were nice and clean, although the two days we were there I don't think anyone from the staff ever went into the pool area. By the end of our stay there were no more clean pool towels (we... More

great service- very clean - people were very helpful - it might be nice to have a shuttle service within five miles and not just to the Palomar Airport and LEGOLAND - guests may want to go other places within five miles
