Courtyard San Diego Airport/Liberty Station
Ranked #28 of 286 Hotels in San Diego
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We stayed here for two nights this past weekend with family. I got a water view room with two queen beds on 4th floor right above the pool. We have two toddlers travelling with us, and the room's balcony facing waterfront/pool/park is an attraction on its own. The kids would not come inside the room...All the bird/boat/plane watching was just too much fun for them!
The hotel's facility is very neat and cozy. We love the decorations in the room. It actaully feels better than a Marriot SPA resort. Surprisingly we couldn't hear airplane noises at all inside the room even though the location is so close to the airport. Free parking is awesome. Even though there's not complimentary breakfast, I like the fact that they have a little deli providing inexpensive breakfast sandwich options for a quick bite before we go about our day.
The only thing that took one star off is the common area cleaness. I constantly saw little pieces of trash and dirt on the elevator carpet. Maybe it's because we have toddlers so I looked down quite a bit. Also when my husband was getting ice from the ice machine, my two-yr-old son accidentally put his hand inside the ice outlet. His hand was all black dirty and moldy when he pulled it out. We can imagine how dirty it must be inside the machine. The ice isn't meant for eating, and it's not a big deal to us. But a little more thoroughness towards cleaning would grant five stars to our overall experience.

Room Tip: water view room with balcony is awesome for kids

I glad that you enjoyed your stay, but want to apologize for the condition of the ice machine. We monitor them on a regular basis but obviously that interval needs to chance. It has already been addressed with our engineering department.
I do agree that we have an excellent location to use as you explore the rest of San Diego. Thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you again.

We stayed here at the end of May for 3 nights, and we have no regrets. Check-in was easy, the girls at the front desk were helpful and friendly. The room was clean, bathroom was clean, place was very quiet, and we all had a good night sleep. There was a church close by for Sunday service, restaurants within the area, and it was an easy drive to SeaWorld, Seaport and Coronado. Pool was small, but clean and warm enough for the kids to play in. Lots of space/trails to walk/bike right outside the door! Breakfast buffet was a bit pricey, but pretty good and convenient. Will be back!

Thank you for your kind words. I agree, Liberty Station does have some great little restaurants and a great jumping off point to explore San Diego. Appreciate the shout out for our front desk staff. They work hard to make each stay special and will be happy to read these.

We have stayed here four different times. The Liberty Station location is excellent. It is near the airport, the Liberty Station bars and restaurants, the sport fishing fleet, Point Loma and Liberty Station and Spanish Landing parks. The property is a typical Courtyard facility. In the US, the new ones seem to be very similiar in format although the amenities here seem much more expansive than some other new ones like Larkspur in the Bay area. This one has a very nice business center, pool area, restaurant and bar. An entry sign says Jim is rated on Trip Advisor as the best bartender in San Diego. We visited the bar for a great value happy hour and can confirm that Jim is an exceptional bartender and a charismatic guy who gives great service. The food was far better than any hotel bar food we have had. The ahi tuna stack was almost dinner. The rooms are very comfortable and we found them clean, well equipped and quiet despite the proximity to the airport. San Diego can be pricey for hotel stays and the value locations tend to be tired and poorly place. For that
reason this Courtyard should
be high on your list for value with location. Only needs work comment is the front desk which can be spotty. Our check in persons seemed overwhelmed and/or distracted on several of our visits. That was particularly true this time.

We do our best to keep staff levels appropriate to meet guest needs, but occasionally we do experience higher volume than we anticipated.

I stayed here two years ago and had a positive experience. This time was no different. The hotel is very clean and the staff is very friendly. The pool and outdoor area is outstanding. It's convenient to the airport and just a short walking distance to restaurants and a grocery store. There is also free parking. Love this hotel and its covenientg location. Will definitely stay again. By the way, the beds are very comfortable!

We stayed at the Courtyard over the weekend. It's close to the Airport and the shuttle service to and from is good. The hotel is situated next to a Homewood Suites (a far better accommodation BTW) and it's a decent property. Check in and check out was fine, the rooms are bare-bones Marriott quality (cheap), the 'business' center with two computers is decent, but the cost for meals and incidentals is high, as expected of a Marriott. The place was packed with families and kids, OK generally, but if you want some peace, quiet and sound sleep avoid a room near the pool or the words 'Marco Polo' will keep playing in your head for days if not weeks. We'd stay again probably, expecting about the same level of quality. After all, it's far better than a Best Western.

I usually stay in the downtown area when I go to San Diego but this time I decided to try something different. I am so glad I did!! This hotel is in excellent condition. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and in excellent condition. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. And parking is free!! It's very close to the airport. It was a great stay- I will be back!!
