We spent just one night at the Courtyard Marriott on our way up the coast and thought it was just perfect. The rooms have been recently renovated and it was fresh, modern, clean and comfortable with amenities you'd expect from a Marriott. The staff was welcoming and eager to assist. The hotel is situated right on Hwy 101 so we... More

Forecast was rain and wind. It rained and blew upwards of 50mph. We like the location very much, and just 5 minutes away is a very fun dog park beach. Hotel was getting a new roof, but it didn't start until after 9am so no issues with noise, and by the time you stay there it should be done. Nice... More

I stay 100+ nights a year with Marriott. With that said, I will add this hotel to my regular choices while traveling in the San Diego/Solana Beach area. Zach and Jessica made the stay a great experience. Close to great food and Beach access.

This is a great place to stay near San Diego, near the beach and near Del Mar Racetrack. We really enjoy our stays here (our 4th stay!). Yes, it's no-frills being a Courtyard, but seems to have all the right things we need for a relaxing (end-of-year) stay. Having the larger king room enabled us to spread out a bit.... More

Hotel should get a 4 star rating, but we were woken up with really, really, loud roof work the first morning. Desk had placed us on the 2nd floor directly under the work and it was loud, really loud. The relaxing morning turned into rushing downstairs to escape the noise. We were given a free night, but still planned our... More

This hotel had a great staff. I gave it 3 stars because of the ongoing construction. So, the noise will keep you up between 9am and 4:30pm if you wanted to nap during these times. This hotel has great access to beach activities. There is a great thai restaurant next door for those who love thai food. I would definitely... More

Dear maiboston, Thank you for your feedback in regards to your recent stay with us. We apologize for the issue with the roof repairs, unfortunately with the wet season ahead these repairs needed to be completed as soon as possible. We are hoping to finish the repairs by the end of February. We are happy to hear you had a... More

This hotel is in a great location if you are in Solana Beach for a concert at Belly Up Tavern, or just want to walk around the quaint beach town. It's inexpensive, spacious rooms, very clean, current decor, has a restaurant, small pool and is walking distance to the beach, Del Mar Race Track and Art District. I have only... More

The restaurant is outside in the center of the courtyard and there is an outside fireplace right outside the door. Very comfortable for evenings after work. They have very nice rooms that all have doors to the outside but still secure feeling. This is one of the nicest Courtyards I have ever stayed at.

Chosen for its proximity to the coaster train I had no regrets because of the hidden gems on Cedros avenue. The hotel itself seems a bit 'lodgy' but overall not bad, especially the courtyard. I had a noisy neighbor and my tv reception was very sketchy but I did manage to relax. Overall, probably not my first choice for Solana... More
