Stayed one night at the CY Solano Beach/Del Mar area. We got upgraded to an executive suite which was a large room with king bed & sofa. The bathroom was huge. Very clean, modern & comfortable. No carpet but wood tile floors (trendy). We were on the first floor & right outside our door was the courtyard with pool &... More

A friend and I had to run down to Del Mar the other day at the last minute and luckily we were able to get a room at the Courtyard by Marriott Solana Beach for the night. I travel quite a bit on business and I've had very good luck staying at Courtyards. This location was no exception. Everything was... More

The hotel and location is great. I own a Tesla and they had six chargers located in their parking garage. My battery anxiety was solved. The only issue I encountered was that one night all the charger parking spaces were occupied, but none of the parked cars were electric. My suggestion would be to post a notice that those spots...

We decided to stay in Solana Beach as part of our California two week vacation. We are a family of four with two young teens. The hotel is super cute with a small town resort feel. We've spent the past 10 days in Embassy Suites and the feel here is very different. It's much more intimate and quiet with a... More

Lots of space and great for families. Definitely try to get the executive suite. It's worth it. The rooms are definitely bigger and nicer. The walls are pretty thin, so stick to the second floor and away from elevators if you don't want to hear every that arrives late at night. It sounded like the globetrotters arrived around midnight on... More

You can walk to the racetrack, a little over a mile to the grandstands, which on opening day is a lot better than driving or uber. You can walk to the beach, but it is 200 feet of stairs straight down. The credos avenue shopping area is nice and a half mile walk. There are also great places to eat... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for five days. We were in town for Comic Con. This hotel is conveniently located within a brief 10-minute walk to the Coaster train, which travels from Oceanside to San Diego. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, and there is a bistro on property that has a decent selection of... More

Here for business and glad that this hotel allowed us the Govt per diem rate. Ask for one of the corner rooms -- they are really spacious.

Location was great, convenient to both freeway and beach, decor was outstanding, though lighting could be warmer, beds were superb, service was good. Breakfast was not free, and there really should be a free offering for those in the go, but we had time and enjoy a cafe down the street. I would actively stay here again.
