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

We stayed here over new year both last year and this, and were impressed by the room improvements made between our stays. Location is excellent, with great public transport options covering the whole coast from Oceanside down to San Diego. Staff are very friendly, and the "Bistro" food options limited but good enough (we actually had a better breakfast here... More

This is a very average hotel. It is clean, the personnel friendly, but I could hear people in the next room talking. The walls don't seem to be insulated against noise. Many people in the pool/hot tub late at night....very noisy. I booked the hotel for 2 rooms through Expedia and tried to cancel one night of one room two... More

Spent one night on Dec 23rd on the way back from a trip to Lego Land. We arrived about 8pm and left fairly early for La Jolla, so can't really comment on the surrounding area. We were very impressed by the staff at the front desk and at the Bistro. Judging from the number of cars parked in the underground... More

We were only staying one night after attending a college bowl game. It being days after Christmas, San Diego hotels were surprisingly full including this Courtyard which was hosting a number of teams involved in a girls volleyball tournament. But I digress. This Courtyard is one of only three hotels in Solana Beach, the only competitor being a Holiday Inn... More

For a Courtyard Marriott hotel this is one of the better properties I've stayed at so far. The rooms have been recently renovated and are spacious and clean. King bed is firm but not uncomfortable and they have free wifi in the rooms. The bathroom is large with a walk in shower and toilet has a sliding door for privacy.... More
