“Great place near airport and Cruise Port”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Driver from airport was very courteous and even had a bottle of water for everyone he picked up. The service was prompt. The room was very clean and a quiet location, even with a reception being held here. The front desk staff was informative and the restaurant and coffee shop were very good. Great place to stay while in San Diego. Plenty of parking

We traveled to San Diego to visit family and see the sights. The Courtyard is located in Liberty Station, the former Naval Training facility that had been converted to a shopping/restaurant and housing complex. Great esplanade along the channel for walking. Tim at the bar does make a pretty good margarita.

Room Tip: Do spend the extra money to get a water view.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a convention. The location was perfectly situated, next to the airport, 5 minutes from downtown, 10 minutes to Seaworld and beaches. The rooms were well appointed. There is a coffee shop and restaurant with a very good buffet style breakfast. The bar is nice and their bartender makes his own signature margarita. Fitness facility is fairly well equipped but running along the adjacent Esplanade Waterway is preferable to any treadmill.

We appreciate you taking the time to post about your recent stay. We all agree the Jim’s margarita’s are amazing however they might make the early morning run start a little later. Either way I’m with you and would still chose the Esplanade. Hope you get to visit when you’re not working.

Take care and travel safe.

This was a first stay at the Liberty Station Courtyard for four nights to attend a meeting. It is a very busy hotel close to the airport. The staff is very helpful and accommodating, especially Samantha at the front desk when we asked to change rooms in order to get a better view. The Liberty Station redevelopment is a great locale. There are some very good restaurants and shopping opportunities within walking distance. Outside on the waterfront, there is a good walking/running trail as long as you can handle the jets taking off from the airport directly overhead.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the water if possible. The south side of the hotel looks directly onto another...

I hope it will not be your last stay. So happy to hear that our staff took good care of you; and I agree Samantha is a great asset to our property. All our staff read these comments and I know she will be excited to know she made your stay more enjoyable. And with the airport takeoff area being 7/10th of a miles down the path – it’s a great area to watch them depart from. I do hope we will see you again.

My wife and our 18 month old stayed here for 3 nights, and had a great experience. The hotel was extremely easy to get to from the airport, and the service we received was fantastic. From the front desk to the breakfast service everyone was polite and willing to help with anything. Also, for being so close to the airport, I did not feel like we heard many planes. At least, not where it was bothersome or memorable.

I had wrestled with picking a hotel in the downtown area or this one, and I was very satisfied with the one I chose. The downtown was a little too congested and paying upward of $40 per night for parking seemed crazy to me. We rented a car so the free parking was a major plus. Also, the proximity to almost anything (downtown, the zoo, restaurants, old town) was a short drive.

All-in-all I would probably stay at this hotel again during our next family trip to San Diego.

This hotel is very convenient to the San Diego Airport but is long over due for remodeling and upgrading. In addition they charge extra for wifi which I have come to expect as a freeby. My room was ok but a looooong walk from the lobby. I would not stay there again.

Room Tip: Don't know.

I am sorry that our property was not to your liking. Obviously, I’m going to disagree and based on comments posted I feel the majority of our guests will back me up. I’m also confused by your wifi comment because we do provide free wifi for all guests. Once you sign on the network you click on a “radio button” for 24hr free access.

We had an early flight into San Diego, and got to this hotel around 1030am. Even though check-in was not until later on in the afternoon, and the hotel was supposedly sold out the night before, they had a room available for us. This helped a lot as we were flying all night, and needed some rest before going to explore the city. The room was very clean and modern. The mattress was very comfortable, and I slept well - the room was very quiet. The staff was pleasant and friendly both at check-in and check out. Very pleased with the stay overall.

Our guaranteed check in is at 4pm but we always try to accommodate anyone wishing to check in earlier. I’m so glad to hear we were able to do so in your case. Especially since you arrived on the eye red – we’ve all know what those are like. Thanks for mentioning the staff – they all work hard to make each stay special and they will be please to read your comments.

Have a great day and hope to see you again.
