Nice hotel. Very quiet location. Right off the freeway. Would definitely stay here again

Comfy. Convenient. Good staff. Good food. Close to a lot of different options.

This hotel is satisfactory but we were put in a room which had the air conditioning unit on the roof directly above us. The room was actually vibrating with a continual drone.We contacted reception and we were moved at 1am in the morning to the room directly below.The noise was still there.This hotel had lots of empty rooms and yet they put us in this part of the hotel.I suggest they never use it again and use it for storage etc..The staff were great.Food OK.Finally ,what does downtown San Diego mean?StafWe had to use Taxis etc..all weekend .Too far away from the city .

Hotel was wonderful. Very clean and organized. Staff was awesome. Located near many different types off restaurants. Will certainly stay here again on our next visit to San Diego.

Amazing stay and service. Definitely a must!!! Restaurants and Mission Valley Mall close by. Spent Saturday at Balboa Park with Family and friends. Will come back very soon!!

Very nice people, fire place at night is relaxing and swimming pool clean

We were satisfied with our stay in Courtyard. The beds were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was generous and tasty. The location is near to downtown and Sea World, where we went. Overall, a comfortable and pleasant stay.

This hotel is clean, with friendly and accomodating staff. Lots of parking space and the area was safe. I definitely would stay in this hotel again.

This was a great experience! We had stayed the night before in a less desirable chain hotel and paid quite a bit more for a not so great experience. This Courtyard Marriott was beautifully organized, immaculate, modern and truly wished we could have stayed more than the one night to really enjoy the outside pool and happy hour. It will be where we stay always when visiting our daughter.

We stayed here for 1 night to attend a concert at the Qualcomm stadium which was less than five miles away. Very accessible from the freeway, lots of restaurant choices within a 2-mile radius and the staff are very courteous and attentive. Very pleasant stay )

Awesome location..... Only about 15 min away from mission bay beach..my kids loved the pool and really enjoyed the room..very comfortable and safe would highly recommend...will definitely stay their again...

it was great close to freeways and not very far from the qualcomm stadium.

Near to office Have many restaurant around Convenient transpotation

Hotel was under some renovation, but these changes were only making the hotel better. The room was large and very functional, with a desk, work area, and couch. Huge flat screen TV, with limited but adequate channels. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was some noise during the day, with construction and roadwork going on nearby. I would definitely stay there again.

Very professional and friendly staff. Room is clean and spacious.

We had a great time. We enjoyed the pool and the fitness center. We arrived extra early and they still gave us a room! Everything was so clean. We would definitely stay there again. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the restroom had no fan, but other than that it would have been a 5.

The hotel staff was welcoming & friendly. Since the room was prepaid through this site, they gave a choice of rooms to pick from. I enjoyed the evening outside by the fireplace. The sheets smelled wonderful and the pillows were just the way I like!

Great location...nice pool. Walls were thin. We could hear the guy next door snoring all night. And the sports kids were running laps and perhaps bowling or jumping off beds well into the night hours onto the floor above. The breakfasts were good...a bit high priced if you didn't eat like a 15 year old boy. My advice is to bring ear plugs and request the 3rd floor and get a voucher for meals. If it hadn't been a two minute walk to my family, it would have not held any value. I was surprised for this chain.

This hotel is very clean and about a 15 minute drive to Downtown San Diego. Parking is free and the room was very quiet. The staff was very helpful. Highly recommended!
