“Part of the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We have stayed at this hotel for the past 7 years for a volleyball tournament we come to every year! They have continually become better and better at providing for our needs. They have become family and we have continually become closer to the amazing staff! We recommend this hotel to all the other teams that we see from this tournament and will continue to stay here for our annual trip!

Our team stayed here for a football passing league at SDSU. The hotel staff worked with us to accommodate our early departure and fed everyone breakfast before the dining room opened. The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. Everything was perfect!

I stayed at the Courtyard while on a business trip in the San Diego area and it was an excellent stay. From check-in to check-out the staff was exceptional. I stay at a lot of Marriott properties while on business and wish the other Marriott hotels could take a lessen from the staff here. The hotel was nice and the bed was very comfortable. The food at breakfast and dinner was great, but there is a fee unless you book the room at a rate which has breakfast included. I highly recommend anybody looking for a great hotel in the San Diego central area stay at this Courtyard.

We had two days of meetings & team building for our group (8-11 people). The service was great, food was great. One night we did the cooking class lead by the head chef, we had a great time and learned great skills. I'd recommend this property and their staff for any event you are doing in San Diego! Thanks to Max, Nicole, Pam, and crew!

Our cooking classes have been a great hit. I am really glad that you got to experience it. It adds another level of service to our arsenal that is not found just at any hotel. I hope that your team walked away more cohesive than ever before.

Thank you for the shout-outs and until next time.

Stayed at this courtyard because of reviews on tripadvisor. They were all correct! The pool looks great. I didnt get to try it. There were many folks in the pool but all was quite a bedtime. It looks the hotel is great at accommodating groups. Right now a full restaurant with specials plus happy hour service. I had a red snapper special. The server was great and the cook was too but the snapper was a little bland. Breakfast was very good. Front desk service was friendly and quick. This hotel was about 20 minutes from airport. The air conditioning in the room was already on which made the room cool and comfortable to walk into after a long day. Free parking around the building was plentiful. I will stay here again!

What an exciting review. The energy that is exuding from our hotel is one of the best aspects working here. Seeing our guests having a great time is very gratifying. Thank you for the many compliments; now we just need to get the spices for the snapper right.

Can't wait to welcome you back.

I walked into the hotel with a migraine and Joe at the front desk totally took care of me so I didn't worry about a thing. Fortunately, Victor Nueva walked by and saw I was not in good shape. He kindly took by bags up to my room, fixed me a nice bag of ice and put the do not disturb on my doorknob. I was so grateful to be where I could lie down without a worry and get well.

I hope you are better again. Travelling is though enough and not feeling well certainly takes all the fun out of it. Thank you for sharing the kind care Joe and Victor took. They are true hospitality heroes and we are very fortunate to have them as part of our team.

Looking forward to welcoming you back whenever your travels take you to San Diego.

It is always great to stay here! We stay as a group for our sports team, and they always take care of us. The food is great, the rooms are great, the pool is large, the kids and parents have a great time. Staff is very friendly and very accommodating. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: 1st Floor on the bottom, facing the pool. Sliding glass doors, excellent for having kids!
