We all know Marriott Courtyards aren't the high end hotels we'd love to stay at. However, this is one of the nicest Courtyard properties my husband and I have stayed at. They have recently renovated, which is fresh, nice and clean. They have a hand full of larger rooms/suites that are huge! And a few have a massive sunken tub... More

I stayed for two nights on business. I would say that overall I was content. It’s not a high-end hotel, so my expectations were realistic. For a mid-range hotel, I’d say that it was slightly above average because of the updates. The updated interior design was nice; room furnishings were light, not cluttered, but did lack table/counter space. The queen... More

This was our 3rd time to stay at this hotel. Knowing that it was supposedly remodeled since our last visit we were expecting a little more than we got. Our room did not appear to be remodeled except for perhaps the fixtures. An electrical outlet did not work. The fluorescent light by the television didn't work, which made it difficult... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know the areas where we did not meet your expectations. All of our rooms were remodeled in 2014. We are sorry that one of the electrical outlets did not work. If a malfunction is reported to the front desk they will have our maintenance crew make the repairs immediately. In regards... More

We just spent six days at this hotel for our son's wedding. The reception desk personnel and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful room on the first floor right off the courtyard; loved the courtyard, the fireplace, the Bistro, the hot tub and the pool. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. Ten minute...

My husband and I spent five nights at this hotel. We arrived very late in the evening at around 11:30 p.m. We were met by friendly attendants who said they had been waiting for us. Our room was ready and we were off to it in a few minutes. The newly renovated room was amazing. It had vaulted ceilings, a... More

This recently refurbished hotel is perfectly located within walking distance of some great restaurants (read below). Easy walk to Dog Beach too. The rooms are nice. They have hardwood flooring which is a real treat compared to the usual carpeted flooring that always seems to smell bad. This is a perfect little hotel for a quick business trip or family.... More

Spent a night here during a business visit to San Diego. Wanted to have a "get away" beach feel and this looked closest to the beach (besides a Holiday Inn... but I'm too much of a snob to stay there). I don't think any of the hotels are right on the beach so this is as close as you'll get.... More

It is always nice to read a review with positive feedback. Solana Beach is a quaint little beach town along Highway 101 and we are located in the center of it. It is our proximity to beaches, restaurants shopping and the famous Del Mar Fairgrounds and race track, not to mention our staff and our hotel, that keeps our guests... More
