This is our 2nd time staying in Carlsbad and for the money, I felt our hotel selection the first time around was much better. Nothing wrong with this hotel, don't get me wrong, we just left with a so-so attitude about it. It's very clean and new and the hotel staff is very good, pleasant and helpful. The room itself...

This hotel was adequate in that it ticks all the main boxes required for a one night stay. The downside was my room was close to the elevator and quite loud. There is food available in a little restaurant but it's not open all the time. Some nice touches.....fresh baked cookies at reception in the evening and coffee in your...

This hotel is very clean, with comfortable bed/pillows, good water pressure, as well as friendly and attentive staff. The food was good. The location and price were good as well. We travel a lot and this was by far one of the best places we have stayed at. We definitely recommend this hotel. Ellen

The staff were very sensitive to our circumstances (needed to make adjustments to our reservations due to funeral arrangements). Room was as expected for price range and class of hotel. Solid. Got a good night's rest and was ready to go in the morning.

Great hotel, clean and spacious rooms. Close to shopping, restaurants and highways. Staff were friendly and willing to help. It is a little tucked away, but provided a quiet stay after a day at the soccer tournament.

We stayed here for 1 night as we traveled through Southern California. We initially chose this hotel because of our Marriott rewards, and it was what you expect from a Marriott Courtyard near an airport. There were a lot of business travelers, extremely clean room, quiet hallways, and very comfortable beds. It's located in the middle of a corporate park...
