“Great Hotel If You Have a Car”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for one night when we had a 24 hour layover in San Diego. The property and rooms are clean, the staff is friendly, attentive and responsive and you can't beat the freebies like complimentary wi-fi. However, travelers are at a great disadvantage staying at this hotel unless they have their own transportation. There are restaurants within walking distance (nothing spectacular) but no direct access to local attractions unless you take a taxi. There was a shuttle to the Trolley tour from Homewood Suites next door but it only had one scheduled pick-up and return each day.

Stayed two nights as a stop-over to break up a Maui to Chicago travel. Had a one bedroom suite, which was a really nice space - lots of room (a little pricy at $200 plus taxes), and very comfortable.

We had a flight that arrived around 10:30 pm. We called the hotel for the free shuttle and it was there in less than 10 minutes - nice service.

Breakfast was good. You can order from the menu or the buffet. We had the cold buffet, which was fine - nothing special, but adequate ($10.50). Service was friendly and attentive.

On Friday we took a taxi to Old Town San Diego to catch the Coaster commuter train to Oceanside. The train ride was smooth and enjoyable. Spent several hours walking the pier and beachfront sidewalks, had a nice oceanfront lunch and then the return train. Carlsbad Village also looked like it would be a nice shopping stop. Coaster was $11.00 round trip ($5.50 seniors). Taxi from Courtyard to Old Town was $13.00, but the return driver took a route past the airport for $21.50!

Overall a nice hotel, with friendly staff in a good location.

Stayed here with the family on a Zoo/Sea World getaway. The location is at the same place I went to boot camp in the 1980's and was amazed at how much this location has changed over the years. The hotel sits on a water inlet from San Diego Bay and offers some serene water views and open spaces adjacent to the hotel. The hotel is updated and fresh with plenty of outdoor seating for drinking, talking and enjoying the views. We had the 2 queen bed/water view room and it was spacious and modern. The only gripe was that nearly all of the view rooms overlook the pool. So noise and nighttime pool shenanigans kept us up a bit. You also are in very close proximity to the airport and hear jets taking off, but nothing too obstrusive. Another bonus is that adjacent to the property there are many good restaurants within walking distance. Morning breakfast at the hotel was very good and a good value. I would definitely stay here again for the convenience and price.

We held a two day customer training event at this facility. The banquet staff and food quality was on par with other hotels we've used in the 4 star category. The hotel is well appointed and the location is lovely overlooking the naval canal. Sleeping rooms are comfy and super clean. It was an outstanding facility for our meeting and we will return again. I recommend this hotel highly for all of your most important meetings and events. A+!

I reserved 2 queen beds. We arrived at 11 pm, exhausted. They put us in a 1 king bed with a sofa bed. The sofa bed was so uncomfortable, 4 of us tried to sleep on the King bed. We tried to change rooms, but they had no 2 queen bed rooms available. They overbooked and gave away our 2 queen beds. Horrible night's sleep. I told the front desk and she gave me a look like "I honestly don't care." She had me pay the full price and offered no discount for not providing us the room we were promised.

I only stayed here one night but everything was great. The facility is a short ride from the airport which was important on this trip. The price was very reasonable. The front desk was efficient and friendly. The hotel seems to be new. My room was clean and there were no issues with it at all. I loved all of the outlets for cell phone chargers as I didn't have to scramble looking for plugs. I used the exercise room and it was quite nice with five treadmills, two ellipticals and various weightlifting equipment. Cold water was also available. I'd happily stay again.

Loved this hotels location. New area and safe. Jim the bartender made the best margarita I ever had. I saw a trip advisor sign in the lobby stating this so I had to have one. It was the best! Rooms a re large and clean. I would stay there again.
