This is one of the best Marriott properties I have enjoyed. The entire building is immaculately clean. My room was beautiful and huge. Front desk check-in was smooth and everyone is very professional and friendly. Highly recommended location!

We have stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott Solana Beach/Del Mar on Highway 101 many times when we come from Los Angeles to Del Mar. If you get a room a bit away from the highway on either side or back of the hotel, you have a blissful stay. The pool is larger and better along with the hot tub,... More

My daughter and her new husband had a destination wedding at the Del Mar Powerhouse and had a block of 24 rooms for all the out of state friends and family to stay. We had a special group rate and the accommodations worked perfect! Although we had an incident with a new maintenance staff member ( which was resolved) we... More

The good: Had many people. 30 plus rooms were taken by our group. Well taken care of. Bridal party had a great pre-wedding setting. Love the Bistro. Great for early morning planning and reminiscing. Then in the evening, getting back together. Pool nice, grounds well kept, parking adequate, rooms quiet. The bad: Pool steps slippery, saw a couple people slip... More

Stayed in a room just off the pool that had been newly renovated. The room was great as was being just off the pool with the poolside location. There was always cold water in the lobby as well. The restaurant was okay but served the usual fare and in town there are so many other cool places to eat that... More

Having lived in Solana Beach and had just stayed in maybe the best Courtyard in downtown San Diego, I was disappointed in this Courtyard. It was overpriced, the pool was small, and the beer selection should have been more of San Diego quality, Plus they charged for parking! You don't pay for parking in Solana Beach, period. The room was... More

We went to Solano Beach to take a hot air balloon ride and the Marriott was close to our take off spot. Unfortunately, our excursion was canceled due to weather. We enjoyed the area but the hotel was just ok. The minuses: There were people with children above us and they kept us up all night. The walls were not... More

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

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...
