Courtyard San Diego Airport/Liberty Station

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We made a very late booking to stay here over Christmas and New Year 2014 and were totally delighted.

In a great location, this spotlessly clean hotel met our every need and we can't wait to return. There are so many positives: friendly staff throughout, free parking, free Internet, good breakfast, good evening restaurant, good pool, good gym, good bar; we loved it. 10 mins at most from the gas lamp area and 5 mins from the airport with a free shuttle. And reasonably priced.

We stayed here 3 years ago; the hotel was far busier this time, but standards had been well maintained. We loved our stay here and hope to return.

Room Tip: Go for an upper floor over the pool and bay.

This was a great Courtyard once again. The room was spacious with great beds! We had two refrigerators in our room and a microwave. The view over the harbor (don't be nervous about airport-we never heard a plane) was great and had some nice walking paths as well as a nice small mall with many food choices right next door. It was a great center point for SeaWorld, San Diego Zoo and the Cabrillo National Monument. It was also as the name implies, perfect for and close to the airport. San Diego is easy to get around and with the free parking here, was and will be our choice to stay again! All the staff was great-especially Jim the bartender! We were here for 2 nights but did not have time for pool or hot tub, but both looked very nice and well kept as well. Only downsides were an extremely slow elevator and a subpar dinner in the restaurant-twentyfive/92. My meal of Mahi mahi was flavored well but overcooked. My wife's scallops had a strong fishy flavor and seemed greasy. She then tried a burger which tasted ok but... My assumption is a different chef that night (Saturday) as other diners seemed to have issues as well. Jim was extremely surprised that we were disappointed and other reviewers have spoken highly of meals there. Our server Lisa B was great about everything. Overall a great stay and would recommend!!!

Thank you for your review! Based on your Trip Advisor profile, I can see you are an experienced traveler who knows what to expect in a great stay. I am very excited to read that you really enjoyed your time with us, and were able to take advantage of our awesome location. Great to hear that Jim & Lisa B (as always), provided their signature service, but of course that is no surprise! However, I would like to sincerely apologize that the food you were served was not up to our standards. I have shared this information with our Food & Beverage Director, so we may continue to maintain our high standards for the quality of food served in this hotel. Feedback such as your own helps us maintain and improve our service every single day, so thank you for the honest review.

Great hotel!! The staff was super friendly and gave us the best room for our price range--top floor with a balcony. Had a nice view of the channel and San Diego. Loved our room - clean and cozy. Couldn't ask for a nicer one. The pool and hot tub was in a very elegant setting. It seemed like we were only minutes away from everything we wanted to do. Will definitely stay here again.

This is an ideal location for visitors to San Diego: close to the airport and popular destinations like the Zoo, the Midway Museum, and Little Italy. Our room was spacious and pleasant, and the front desk personnel, especially Kris, were friendly and efficient without being obsequious. We enjoyed great sandwiches and wine at the bar. Didn't catch the bartender's name, but she was a sweetheart. The hot tub was a real plus. We noted that both the hot tub and the pool are handicap-friendly. A variety of restaurants are in walking distance for those too weary to drive into town. There's no extra charge for parking or wifi! (The recent practice of charging for parking in a non-urban setting is a pet peeve!) I have not rated this hotel as a "5" because it is in the flight path for Lindbergh Field: The noise was not unbearable, but some may object. Also, we occasionally heard creaking as guests staying on the third floor walked about their units. Overall, we were very pleased with the stay.

I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, and had a wonderful time taking advantage of all the amenities within the hotel, and also the local area. I am happy that you found the room and its features to your liking, as well as our amazing staff, notably our Front Desk Manager, Kris. I am sorry to see that you experienced airport related noise, which prevented us from receiving a perfect 5/5 Trip Advisor score. Next time you stay with us, please do not hesitate to remind us you prefer a room where this will not have an impact on your rest and relaxation. I am happy to see that you will definitely return to stay with us again, and I hope your next and all future stays with us will be a 5/5!

Awesome review and great pictures, thank you! We always appreciate guests taking the time to post their personal photos of their trip to San Diego, especially ones featuring the Courtyard and Liberty Station. Also, thank you for sharing info regarding our complementary airport shuttle, and public transportation (San Diego MTS bus & trolley service) to and from local attractions. This information is very valuable to travelers, and is a big reason why they come to Trip Advisor. I am happy to read you enjoyed using your balcony to take in the planes, and the neighborhood bird activity! Thank you again for your detailed review and photos, which I am sure many Trip Advisor users will also appreciate.

My family and I finished out our California vacation at this beautiful hotel. This property is true to the positive reviews and pics on the internet. We were pleasantly surprised by the gorgeous view of the San Diego Bay, the clean, spacious rooms, the location near attractions, and especially the friendly staff. We felt welcomed by every person employed by this hotel. We had stayed at an Omni in the San Diego downtown district for three nights and the W Hollywood in LA, but this particular hotel lived up to the service and quality of what we paid to stay there for two nights. This hotel will be one of our favorite places to stay in the Bay area in the future. Thanks again to the fine staff for considering how very important it is to be kind, helpful, and friendly to your clients; it is why such hotels are chosen over others for future visits.

This Courtyard is located on the site of the former US Navy Recruit Training Center in a development now called Liberty Station. Much of the old base has been preserved as a park. Many of the buildings have been restored and put to new use as restaurants, stores, and other establishments. The hotel is located on an inlet that once separated most of the base from the recruit barracks. All sorts of birds can be seen in and around the inlet. Rooms that face the inlet also face the San Diego skyline. The hotel is located about 5 minutes from the airport and the planes take off just about a hundred yards to the north of the hotel. It is a great place for planespotting, but when the sliding door on the balcony is closed we could not hear the planes at all and slept very well at night. There is a free airport shuttle available and the staff was always very helpful. The hot tub is really hot instead of lukewarm like you often find. If you use public transportation, you can walk to the bus stop on Laning Road and Harbor Drive in about five minutes. Catch the 923 bus there and ride it toward downtown to the trolley station at American Plaza. It takes about 10 minutes. From there you can get to almost anywhere in the city. We will definitely be going back and staying here.

Room Tip: We sat in the rooms facing south and they were fine. You can see downtown and the inlet from these r...
