“Clean but really small room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We were booked here on a block of rooms for a tournament so we didn't choose this hotel on our own. We had a king room with a pull out sofa bed for 2 adults and 2 children. The hotel and the room itself were very clean and Hotel staff was very friendly. I deducted 1 star because the room was very small and the freeway noise was a bit loud for us. I did ask for another room on the other side and they gave me options but the freeway noise can pretty much be heard throughout the property. There is a great little lake on the backside of the hotel that is really pretty and the kids enjoyed. The pool area has a lot of seating and the kids enjoyed themselves. I would stay here again but not with 4 people in a king / sofa bed room...maybe a double room or a suite would have been better but the hotel was sold out.

Wow what a wonderful experience and stay that I had at this hotel. It is hidden away in a quiet area very peaceful and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Very clean and spacious rooms, comfortable beds, nice shower. The outdoor pool and hot tub are amazing. We had a nice view from of our room of a pond and courtyard outside. Nice lounge area downstairs to visit. Our first night we checked in we were warmly greeted by an excellent front desk associate Jeremy who gave us a map of the area, recommendations to a beautiful beach in Del Mar and friendly service. This has been my most pleasant experience with Marriott which is one of the many reasons I will continue to book hotel stays with Marriott.

What a great hotel! Tucked away from the hustle & bustle. Very quiet rooms, super clean, pleasantly comfy, great gym area, and the Starbucks Bistro had excellent food! The staff was extremely accommodating & friendly! Next time I'm traveling I will look for a Courtyard. I was very impressed!

The Wifi was the best wifi we had seen at any of the other hotels too!

Because we have family in Rancho Bernardo, we decided to stay here rather than downtown SD for a weekend. Our room was consistent with other Courtyard hotels. We enjoyed strolling through a small, picturesque park adjacent to the hotel. Nearby are shopping plazas with both family owned and operated restaurants and franchises.

RB is home to lots of retirees, so is much quieter than downtown SD or the beach towns. They are about 20 minutes from here when there isn't traffic. We

Easy to find near the San Diego Safari Zoo and the San Diego Zoo, this was a great home base for a Safari wedding for our great niece and her betrothed. The hotel gave us a deep group discount. The staff seemed eager to please and were very helpful. Food and spirits were crazy over-priced, but heck! it was convenient. Starbucks, a bar and a grill made it easy to meet with kin and kith any time of day, except for the speed dating evening. Only complaints were that the king-sized bed was too high and soft to the point of uncomfortable for a light sleeper like me, and the corners of the foam rubber pillows poked us in the eyes. Since no tse-tse flies bugged us and no Bengal tiger drug us out of bed by our toes, i'll call it an overall win.

Room Tip: Bring your own pillows.

Green Features: Thumbs up. The toilet had a flush for yellow and different flush button fo brown: Laudable! They want to save money and water washing towels. Good ideas, we're in California, but not righteously progressive in comparison to many and our super-serious drought. Yet, better than many!.

Husband and stayed here for the weekend. Hotel was nice and clean. Wifi was weak at times and breakfast you need to pay for. Our room faced the FRWY and if it was not for the AC it would have been annoying. Downtown San Diego is 30+ driving and the same driving time to La Jolla. The room does have fridge and mini microwave. The price was good but you did have to drive to any sights.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room.

The Rancho Bernardo Courtyard is a good choice for an affordable place to stay in the Rancho Bernardo area. The property is adjacent to Webb Lake Park, whose amenities include a duck pond with geese, turtles, lots of shade trees and a walking path. The Courtyard seems to be part of the park. At the Hotel itself, you’ll find a great outdoor pool and spa tub. There is no supervision at the pool. While we were there we often found visiting families with small children and young people engaged in games of chicken fighting and Marco Polo - all with varying degrees of respectfulness.

The property is partially updated and quite comfortable. The rooms check all the boxes - California-appropriate water pressure, still just fine; in-room coffee maker, microwave, min-fridge, flat screen TV, Wi-fi, adequate lighting, etc. There’s plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby. They’re in walking distance.

The staff is friendly and accommodating - whatever I asked for was no problem for them, including a room on the park-side of the building. These are popular and people who know ask for them a lot. My sense is this amenity is not always available.

We visit the area often spending time with family, and this Courtyard has become our favorite.
