I have stayed at this hotel a few times for business and it has been very good. The location is perfect for my needs, it is clean and the staff are extremely friendly and customer focused. Today I am writing because I met a colleague there for lunch. I was very skeptical when I walked in. Pretty basic Courtyard Marriott... More

The hotel staff could not have been nicer or more helpful but a smell permeated the hotel room. I'm not sure if it was just overuse of smelly sanitizers or if it was mold but for a while I wondered if I would need to move. I eventually adjusted to the smell and very much appreciated the Starbucks, bar and... More

We stayed here two nights. The hotel is very quiet, very clean and the bed is comfortable. You can also open the windows! We wanted to watch a basketball play-off game and the desk clerk called a local sports bar to confirm they would be showing the game and then printed off directions for us. I feel that is very...

Stayed for only one night but would definitely stay here again. The staff is professional, friendly, and efficient. The rooms are spacious, quiet, and clean. The bed was very comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We love the Courtyard San Diego Central. it's first class from the staff to the rooms. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in San Diego. Close to the freeways and very reasonably priced. Great Beds, great restaurant and very very clean. We love it.

My husband stays here frequently on business and when I get a chance I join him. I agree with other travelers that it is a prime location for groups and business functions and many times there is a lot of activity and noise, not only in the hallways but the patio area, which can go on late outside in the...

I should have connected the dots when I read the glowing reviews about how this property is 'great for sports teams', because the hotel was filled with them--Noisy, drunk and loud college students in large groups partying in their rooms until early morning hours. We came to for a romantic weekend getaway weekend for Valentine's Day and it's been an... More

Showed up at this Courtyard at midnight after a long 18 hour day and was told that although they had my reservation they were completely full.
