“The place was great and affordable, but the people made the difference”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

It's impossible to fully capture my experience with this hotel, but it all began after a hectic and stressful flight delay/ cancellation. At the airport, I was fortunate enough to meet the sister of Sandy, an incredible employee at the San Diego Courtyard. Sandy came and picked us up at the airport and seemed to realize that we needed some decompression. She introduced us to the bartender and set us up for the happy hour, and when she was done working for the day joined us for most of the evening. I didn't have a room booked, and Sandy made sure that not only I received a room (no small feat given that there were mass flight cancellations) but she also ensured that I received a very favorable rate. This service was FAR above and beyond my expectations, and she is one of the friendliest people I have ever met on the road (and I tend to travel a lot for work). Certainly we all expect hotels to meet a certain standard- and this one certainly did- but it's the people that make the experience. The overall service was impeccable, and I look forward to visitng Sandy again!

Sandy is an excellent asset to our team, and I will ensure she sees this great review! It’s nice to have a place to decompress after a hectic travel day, and Jim’s Bar (specifically his margaritas) are a fantastic way to relax. We hope you come back to see us soon!

Was lucky enough to spend a few days here and loved every minute. Lovely quiet setting, great views, friendly and helpful staff, could not have asked for more. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

We recently had the opportunity to stay in San Diego for a couple of nights while visiting family in California. Having never visited SD before, we looked at the Marriott hotels in the area (we are Marriott Rewards members) and decided to give the Liberty Station Marriott a shot. We were not disappointed. A beautiful hotel in a very picturesque location by the water, we enjoyed a great room with free wi-fi and comfortable beds. The hotel is located near the airport and just a 15 minute drive to the San Diego Zoo (a must-see when visiting here). Whenever we return to SD, this will be the hotel we will be staying at.

Thank you for giving us a shot! We are very lucky to be located right along the beautiful waterway. It’s the perfect spot to rent paddle boards in the summer. We hope you come back soon!

This is near the airport, but not affected by the noise! Tons of military all around it, but no noise! We had a room on the top floor and it had a great view. All the amenities were very nice and the beds were clean and comfortable. I highly recommend staying here. You get a microwave and refrig. in the room along with things like individual cup coffeemaker, hair dryer, etc. Parking is free. A nice restaurant is on the premises and the happy hour at the bar is excellent with some of the best fish tacos I have ever had. The pool is beautiful and the jacuzzi by it is also very nice. There is a nice paved walk trail nearby so you can take a walk and there is an exercise room inside the place if you wish to use that. Desk clerks were very nice and there is some shopping close by.

Room Tip: top floor facing pool area

Thank you for mentioning the lack of airplane noise! We get a lot of questions regarding the airplanes flying nearby, and it’s always great to see other guests agree that the airport noise is not an issue. Our bar does serve excellent food, along with Jim’s Famous Margaritas-a must have while in San Diego. Thanks for the great review!

We stayed here for a night as we were departing early in the AM.

It was marriott quality clean, quiet and comfortable. There are few restaurants in walking distance. Airport is within 1.5 miles.

We used the shuttle in AM (shuttle starts at about 5 AM).

Overall, a great convenient stay near airport.

I have nothing but high praises for the manager and his complete staff for making this a wonderful hotel to stay at. This was my first stay at this hotel, and the level of treatment I received made me feel as if I was an "VIP." I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning on visiting San Diego. The hotel offers free parking and is only located a few minutes from the airport with free shuttle rides to and from the airport. And I would definitely stay here whenever I am in San Diego. Be sure to say hello to "Candi" (please forgive me if I've mis-spelt your name), she is the shuttle driver.

We stayed there for 3 nights in a two double-bed room. The room was quite spacious and well maintained. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very close to the airport, but a bit off from downtown SD. But SD is a rather small city and we had a rental car, so it's not a problem going around. Surly will still consider staying here next time in SD.
