This is an approximate 20 year old property, right on “the 101,” good beach location and proximity to the action, parking is underground. There’s a nice pool in the center of the structure, nicely landscaped. As in all Marriott Courtyard’s don’t expect free breakfast, they don’t offer it chain-wide. This CY has the newer Bistro concept in a separate building near the pool, offering breakfast, sandwiches, wine & beer. The rooms were on the older side, somewhat comfortable, I had a first floor suite which included a hot tub but did not include the energetic earwig I saw crawling on the bath floor. I’m not saying the hotel is bug ridden, just that I had an unexpected guest, could be an anomaly. There is a nice cove beach, 5-10 minute walk where there is volleyball and an apparent haven to run dogs in and around the shallow waters. There is also a much more scenic cliff beach, same short walk, some steep steps to access it. If you’re a runner, just take a right out of the hotel and you can run a good two miles, I encountered many other runners along this path. Two restaurant choices within walking distance- one is Brigantine which is pricey seafood (upper $20’s). They have a menu at the front desk but don’t be fooled- the prices on it are way outdated and was disappointed to find it so pricey. Instead, try next door, an Italian place called Parioli which is run by two Italian brothers. Very good prices and superb food with a café atmosphere. Lodging prices tend to be high but I went in August so I would expect prices to drop off season. Overall a decent choice, certainly not above average but does have a good location.
