A student and I stayed at this hotel several years ago and really liked it. The little bistro in the courtyard is a good place to grab a quiuck bite. The rooms are big and comfortable and quiet. On this second trip, by happenstance, we were booked into the very same room! Remodeled, close to the beach and our sympsium...

I had to make a long trek for a short business trip and wasn't exactly thrilled. However, the Courtyard made it worth it. The hotel is in a fantastic location, the staff was wonderful and the room was spacious and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable, the work space was great - I really enjoyed the room. My room had...

We stayed here for two nights near the end of a two week vacation in California. We have been to Solana Beach before and wanted to have a couple of days on the beach and visiting the cool shops in this adorable artist Beach town. We tried to book a hotel online on Wed, Mar 15. We wanted to stay...

This is a clean, comfortable hotel in a wonderful community. An Italian restaurant next door serves delicious, authentic dishes and wine; and a small plaza at the other side of the hotel has a deli with great sandwiches, and a Thai restaurant. A bit farther north is a large plaza with several excellent restaurants. Inside the hotel, the "market" is...

Our first floor room exited directly out on to the courtyard. No carpeting in the rooms, which I liked. I would have liked an electrical outlet near the full-length mirror. I also wish the bistro had longer hours -- although their selections and prices were great. While the rooms are on the pricier side, the location is very good, and...

Hi kimmmiemaz! Thank you for providing us with feedback and areas in which we can improve, as well as the compliments! We recently completed a room renovation, adding the hardwood-like flooring to first floor rooms, and we're glad you enjoyed it! We agree that The Bistro hours are limited, and we'll definitely consider switching things up in the future. We...

Overall, the Courtyard Solana Beach is a good choice. Great location- easy walk into town (we were there for a Belly Up concert), and close to the beach. Thumbs up for having outlets on the lamp bases of the nightstands. Thumbs down to the bathroom doors- they're the old school sliding wood panel doors- ours never would close completely, and...

Hello Nes M, We apologize for the wait. We try to accommodate all early check-ins whenever we can. However, when big groups are staying at hotels they tend to be pre-assigned rooms ahead of time as this expedites the check in process for all guests. With that being said, no guest should feel under valued and we apologize for that...

I stayed at Courtyard San Diego Solana Beach during Christmas 2016. When I received the bill before check-out, I told the staff at reception counter that they over-charged "daily parking" as I did not drive. She said that it's ok. However, I subsequently found that my visa is charged on "daily parking". I sent several email asking for refund. I...

I love the location of this hotel. Walkable to a long stretch of beach for people and dog watching. There is also a "design street" a couple of blocks away that will appeal to a lot of people. There are some shopping and restaurants also within walking distance. And it's an easy drive to the restaurants and lots of shopping...

I booked this hotel because of it's proximity to the Del Mar Fairgrounds - 5 minutes or less by car. It was a nice hotel; the room was clean and updated, as was the lobby. Some of the hallways around the guestrooms seemed aged, but likely because they're outside entry and the sea is so close. The real gem here...
