Courtyard San Diego Carlsbad/McClellan-Palomar Airport

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Clean rooms, excellent friendly staff. Surprisingly good food at the bistro.

I went to Carlsbad on business and stayed for a week. The hotel staff was awesome! Gave me restaurant recommendations and helped us checkin early. Really helpful people. The only negative is that the decorating in the room could have been a little newer. The tile in the bathroom looked dated. It was all clean though.

I greatly appreciated the shuttle service from the train station. Staff was professional, helpful and friendly.

Only negative was far from freeway, beach, shopping or restaurants. The hotel was beautiful and the rooms clean. The staff was exceptional! I recommend but be prepared to drive.

Great workers. Nice people. Great service . Very welcoming .

Great staff, clean room, great price. Would recommend this hotel very frindly staff and safe location.

The hotel staff was friendly and accomadating. They allowed us to check in early when we arrived much earlier than our original check-in time. Unfortunately, the hotel was not as clean as we had hoped. The beddings seemed unwashed and it made for an uncomfortable sleep.

I am a frequent Courtyard by Marriott customer and have been for years. Ordinarily my experience at Courtyard by Marriott is very satisfying. What is most satisfying is the consistency from location to location all over the USA. This Carlsbad Courtyard by Marriott had numerous deficiencies: 1) The hallways smelled of antimicrobial carpet treatment (never an encouraging experience) 2) The mattress was old and had deep depressions 3) The water was turned off due to a pipe break and once the pie break was repaired still had no hot water the day we checked out-- No morning shower equals unhappy guest and a long day of travel feeling less than fresh. The room was smaller and less well appointed furniture wise than I routinely see at other Courtyards by Marriott. I would not recommend anyone stay here unless and until appropriate actions are taken to bring this location up to par with the many other locations in the USA.

Booked online. It was less than 15min to LegoLand. Stayed at Marriot before and always liked their hotels. Unfortunately THIS Marriot did NOT have a complimentary continental breakfast. It has a VERY nice lobby and I love the way they decorated the lounge. There is a Starbucks and Bistro but we couldn't afford the cost of their food. We were fortunate to get the hotel attendant to get my two young boys a small chocolate milk for free because hotel didn't have hot cocoa. The hotel room was clean and beds super comfortable. TV came with a lot of channels to select from. There is a pool but we didn't use it. Unfortunately for us, because there wasn't a free breakfast, we had some very cranky and upset people in our group.

This hotel was near legoland and the beach. I can't remember too much about this hotel but I don't recall running into any problems. It was good enough for my family's weekend getaway.

Hotel was just OK. It was easy to book. The hotel was clean and the staff were responsive. I only stayed one night but from what I can tell the hotel and room were clean and fit my needs.

Friendly service. Room was clean, cozy, and comfortable. Located in a quiet and serene location. The fresh-baked cookies were amazing...(took an extra one that still tasted amazing the day after!) Impressed with the friendly staff. Bathtub was a little small, but otherwise amenities were tasteful and what we expected.

This place was great and convenient. Close to a lot of attractions and restaurants. It was very clean the staff was friendly. Would definitely recommend it to others and I would definitely go back.

Hotel was clean and staff was very professional. Room was a bit on the small side but worked. LEGOLAND was less than 10 minutes away.

We came to town for the Jazz festival and we stayed at the hotel. One night we came into the lobby after the festival we called the living room and we felt at home we ate our food and talked and laughed. We even forgot our wine opener and they had one at the front desk for us to open our bottle...we had a great time!!!

Check in was friendly and fast. Location was good for our vacation goals. Shuttle service was limited by Marriott staff availability so we drove ourselves. A super nice welcome back at night was the delicious peanutbutter cookie. The staff made the stay the right choice.

My wife and I needed time for ourselves and left our three children with grandparents. Our stay was great from check-in, to the lobby dining, cocktails, and the overl room stay. Only regret, we did not get the chance to jump into the pool...

I always stay here when in Carlsbad. Great little hotel.

Went to legoland with 2 boys- 6 and 4 years old. Hotel is close to legoland ( about 5 min drive) clean and friendly. Only downside is that the walls are a bit thin so we could hear our neighbors kids running around- not a big deal except that it was close to midnight and they were still running. Overall great location and value.

clean. a bit far from legoland. not much of a bar or restaurant.
