Great hotel, as always. Clean, convenient location, and fair cost. I have always found the customer service to be tremendous and easy parking options, as well. This has been an excellent stay for me whenever I am visiting North County.

Stayed here for a 4 day business trip, I noticed the smell immediately upon entering my room. I got organized and tried to call the front desk... the phones were not working. So I walked down to the lobby and asked if they could send someone to spray my bathroom. They did. I slept with the bathroom door open and...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. Although, I must disagree as this hotel does have some luxurious amenities.

Stayed for a night last month to be close to SD. Decent location, fairly close to food & the 5. Nice staff. One strange thing, though not a big deal, two cushions on the couch did not match, obviously they must have come from another piece. Not a big deal, but definitely caught my eye!

We spent two nights here while visiting Legoland. The hotel is in a very convenient location to the park, and offers a free shuttle to Legoland which was great. The lobby and dining area has been remodeled however the room we were assigned looked as if it had not been renovated since the hotel first open probably in the late...

We were only in need of a room for one night and were so happy we choose Marriott Courtyard on Palomar Airport Road. The service from the staff was pleasant and efficient and the room was large, quiet, clean and well appointed. We'll stay there again.
