4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

We stay in a lot of Courtyards, but this one was a little different. The room was very large, and the decor more artistic - lots of circles and smooth edges. We had a balcony too. The "bistro" was separate from the lobby in the courtyard by the pool, and had outdoor seating and a fire pit, which was nice.... More

My husband and 10 month old baby girl and I stayed here for 3 days. The hotel is extremely clean, nicely decorated, in a convenient location next to lots of places to eat, and walking distance to the beach. There's a little bistro at the hotel. The pool is nice, and there are rooms with sliding doors that go out... More

From the pictures online, I was little worried that the hotel was a little rundown, but it is actually in good shape. Very happy with her decision to stay here. The front desk staff is very pleasant and accommodating. Just wish they had food available before 7 AM.

The location is great for those wanting to be in North County San Diego. Within walking distance to a nice, clean beach. The rooms were large and clean-more contemporary in style. I liked the large courtyard where they had an outdoor fireplace, and a Starbucks where you could get your coffee in the morning. The bed was comfortable and the... More

This hotel is super perfect! A short walk to the beach, conveniently located and reasonable. Rooms are clean, I have stayed here twice now. Beds are cozy and service is great. There is a short easy walk to the beach. The only downside is a huge flight of stairs to get to the beach, but it isn't that bad to... More

Our family stayed at this hotel in March to enjoy a long weekend in San Diego. We loved the location in Solana Beach, right on highway 1. While the hotel is not on the beach, it is in close walking distance. Del Mar North Beach is just two blocks south, and another beach access is just two blocks to the... More

We have stayed at this hotel about a half dozen times and it never disappoints. The rooms have recently been renovated so they are very appealing. The corner rooms are the best 206/204 in particular are well suited for a family of four or five if you have a blow up mattress. The room has a king bed and a... More

The hotel was decent and clean but I'd stay next door at the holiday inn for the free breakfast and parking for two thirds the cost. The pool at the Marriott is nicer but not worth price differential in my opinion.

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

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2015

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
