There is nothing wrong with this hotel. Great staff, good comfortable clean room, good internet, good food. Nothing particularly luxurious, nothing particularly spectacular but it has everything a business traveler would need. Its location is very convenient to Sharp Medical Center.

Traveling with softball team. Don't be fooled by the nice looking lounge area. Rooms are old & outdated. Beds horrible. Room 1 started to leak from ceiling in middle of the night had to move to another room. Was rudely told when I called front desk that there was no maintenance to fix it so either stay there or move.... More

Loved this place and location, but parking seemed to be an issue for me. I was in and out a lot during my stay and the self park lot was usually packed.

Lately, Courtyard has been falling off the list of favorite business hotels because they are the only Marriott properties to not really do much for Platinum elite members. (At other Marriott properties, free breakfasts and in the "real" Marriotts Concierge lounges for breakfast and evening snacks are standard.) But that wasn't my primary reason - most Courtyards have had the... More

Remodeled hotel is attractive and comfortable. Lobby is inviting. Breakfast was fast with an extensive selection. Was a terrific surprise to be awarded guest of the day. Quiet room. Average bathroom. Only issues were old drink stains in hallway carpet, and no staff response to an in-room emergency (keys locked in suitcase).

I have stayed here many times for business. It is central to north and south. 20 minutes to airport, free parking, friendly staff, nice pool area. Typical Marriott Courtyard, but a little more friendly. The management tries to make it one step above. Right off 163 and Balboa. Easy to downtown, the airport and the road tomEscondido n
