“I'd stay again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

A decent location if you want to be close to airport. Seemed like a safe neighbourhood to walk with a nice walking trail with plenty of restaurants in the area. If you are looking to be in the centre of San Diego, this is not the place for you. There is a public bus that goes to the downtown area and the waterfront but cab fare into the city will set you back a few bucks but it's not a long ride. Hotel was clean, good service and the guy at the bar was great. Nice outdoor pool area but I didn't use it as it was a little chilly outside when I was there.

Room Tip: You can get pool view or parking lot view... I'm sure there's a premium but my parking lot...

This hotel is nestled in a great area. There's a bay in the backyard and a huge park next door. The pool is small, but clean. The chlorine smell was a little too strong. The jacuzzi was great - nice high temperature with working jets. I had dinner here and it was one of the better burgers I've had...go figure. Great service from the bartender. I love the courtyard near the pool. It's really cute and has a cozy firepit. Our room seemed nicely remodeled. The rooms also have a Keurig coffee machine, which is super nice. But I wish they gave half and half cups and splenda with the coffee. My only gripe is that our bathroom floor was not clean. I could see streaks of dirt on it when we checked in. It is right near the airport so you will hear planes flying by every 20 minutes. All in all: terrific hotel. I would definitely stay here again in San Diego.

We appreciate you taking the time to post your review and provide us with valuable feedback. I had our engineering department check the chlorine levels and all were normal. I’m glad you enjoyed your dining experience but would like to apologize for the condition of your bathroom floor. That is not the norm for us and I know the housekeeping department will be disappointed. I hope you do get the opportunity to visit us again.

We have been working closely with the Courtyard by Marriott for the past few years to accommodate the high volume of visitors we receive at High Tech High. The service is consistently excellent and professional. The staff is especially helpful and accommodating to any of our requests and needs. Our visitors are always very pleased with their stay and we are always at ease when hosting events and banquets at the hotel.

Thank you for posting about your recent stay and your 5 star rating.

And I agree, Liberty Station is an amazing location. Being so close to downtown yet having tons of open parkland and a walking path along the water is very nice. Hope you get an opportunity to visit us again.

We have been working with the Courtyard by Marriott at Liberty Station for over a year now with our many corporate training events that we conduct for our employees. The staff works very hard to ensure every detail is covered and I always know our sessions will run smoothly and that our employees will be treated with the greatest of care. The conference rooms are bright and spacious, the catering is very good and very flexible for all types of preferences & dietary needs, the rooms are comfortable, the location is perfect (close to the airport, lots of restaurants, walking/running trails near by...) and the lounge is a perfect spot to unwind after a long day. I can go on and on.... That said, it truly is the dedicated, friendly and service oriented staff that makes this place so special.

This Courtyard should be the "model" for Marriott Courtyard hotels...what a gem!!! We were attending a charity event nearby at Liberty Station and chose this due to location. We found staff was wonderful very professional, friendly and very helpful. i travel frequently for work usually staying at Marriott Hotels; however, if this is an indication of what the Courtyards are like then I will consider these hotels in the future. I am very fussy and this hotel was amazing, it was exceptionally clean, it was easy to find your way around the hotel. I liked the intimacy of the hotel as well it felt like a boutique hotel. The restaurant staff and buffet breakfast was excellent. The bar looked initmate, inviting and relaxing. Also, it is so convenient if you don't want a meal then grab something from Starbucks. Overall my husband & I found this to be very enjoyable ...we will be back.

Thank you so much for the kind words. Our staff work very hard to make each stay special and it seems we were successful in your case. It is nice to hear that you believe other Courtyards should be modeled after us, I couldn’t think of a better compliant and we appreciate you sharing it.

I had a pleasant stay at this Courtyard/Marriott. The check-in staff was efficient and friendly. The room, while maybe a bit small, was very modern and up-to-date. There were small decorating touches that added to ambiance and impressed the gf. The bed and furnishings were comfortable and it was all very, very clean as well.
Jim the bartender was top-notch, highlighting the nice selection of tap beers, the happy hour specials, and providing us with some good recommendations for local eateries - including getting MapQuest directions to the one we chose. Jim has been with the facility for years and clearly enjoys his work; he really went all out to provide excellent service and a very friendly atmosphere.
The grounds were nice and there's a walking/jogging path by the canal that goes for miles. While close to the airport, we seemed far enough away and off the arrival/departure path so the noise was not offensive.
There are several eateries in easy walking distance - check out Oggi's for some really fine homebrew beers and good food in a sports bar environment. There's also a Starbucks around the corner.
All-in-all, a pleasant stay at this hotel and I would return here without hesitation.

Room Tip: If sensitive to airport noise, you might avoid that side of the hotel.

So glad you found our “not so secret” bartender Jim during your stay. We are very proud of all our staff but he is a special guy and we are fortunate to have him on our team. He will be happy to know that enjoyed your experience.

Seems like you also had an opportunity to explore our little neighbor hood here in Liberty Station. Lots of great restaurants, trails, museums, and grocery stores all within walking distance.

Thanks for sharing your experience and please visit us again.
