Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Del Mar/Solana Beach

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Incredibly spacious room and very convenient location. Will definitely stay there again.

Just two complaints 1- all the kids in the pool and spa was crazy. No one else was able to enjoy them. 2- ordered food from bistro 2/11/17 in the evening. Food was awful. Ordered BBQ chic flat bread and chic quesadilla. The amount of ingredients for both items was very minimal. We have stayed at other courtyard Marriotts and ordered these same items and they were great. Very disappointed with your bistro. Paid 200. For one night, feeling ripped off.

The hotel staff are friendly and accomodating. I went hot tubbing! Afterwards, walked to dinner. The room is spacious and clean. No complaints here!

Requested rollaway with reservation. Upon arrival was told I couldn't get one because my 2 queen bed room was to small. This caused a major issue & they had no other rooms. Beautiful grounds. Room was large.

I found this hotel and fell in love! It's beautiful! The room was so comfortable and clean I was amazed!

everything is good except I thought it could have direct access to the beach.

Our experience was good until we had to check out a day early so we could get home before a hurricane came through our town. They wouldn't give us any kind of refund for the day we paid for but could not use. So we would never use this hotel again. Some kind of consideration should have been made.

This Courtyard has a great location, but it was being remodeled while I was there. The remodel seems to be a modest one. This property needs more of a total overhaul to bring it up to today's standards. It is a 70's - '80s style place.

very low key and easy stay with 3 kids, beach accessible and great location (off of the typical freeway circuit). There was an issue of being charged 2x for the stay but after a call we were reimbursed about 4 days later

This is a very nice hotel. The room was quite large and nicely maintained. The staff was quite friendly and the beach is a 5 minute walk away.

We live in Los Angeles and love the Solana Beach area. Grandma offered to babysit our little ones so we could have an overnight. This was our first time staying at the Marriott and we would stay there again. The hotel is walking distance to the beach, restaurants and clubs. It is comfortable and quiet. The only downsides are that there is no breakfast included and parking is $12. But really, there are great places to eat nearby so it's not that big of a problem.

Great experience, not complaints. Everyone was friendly, it was clean, quite. I would stay there again when I am in town.

If you're going for a night away, it is a nice choice. The train runs through a few times during the night, which for a lighter sleeper may be a problem. The staff was very kind, The fitness center is terrible. It has one little weight bench and mismatched weights. The pairs were of 15 lb and 30 lb up, but no weights in-between had a pair. The pool was nice. It was good for a night, but not for a long stay.

Walking distance to great places to eat and drink, then to the concert we were in town to see. Convenient with lots of amenities

i recommend this place for anyone going to Del Mar... almost withing walking distance but why if they have a shuttle which they do... only downer to me was $12 a night parking and $180 a night ... but it is race season, supply and demand, blah blah blah.... i get it.....

I had a late check in , fast and easy, if you didn't read about extra fee for parking you may be shocked. Late at night and new to area, where you going to park? I was going to buy something to eat, overpriced and poor selection, unless you like cream of broccoli. Bed was okay had a hard time getting cable channels. The elavator was not working half the time. I like my local Marriot better On the good side staff was nice and this is very close to great beach location this alone made it worth the little misery I encountered..

Was in town for a wedding. Nice staff and location. I checked out early and they did not charge me for the final night. Comfort was so-so but it had a mini-fridge which I needed.

Chose this place as it was a great location close to the venue in SD. However, room did not meet my expectations. Room was bit dusty and king bed was so soft my back hurt in the morning. It was acceptable for 1 night stay but needs an upgrade stat!

We were on a short family visit, but I often had to work in the evenings when the kids slept, so the lobby with plenty of comfy seating and outlets was great. Pool was not warm enough for March swimming really, but the actual courtyard was nice and the casual counter style cafe was excellent. Walking distance to beach and "town".

Good value at a great location. The room was larger than expected and very comfortable.
