This is a clean hotel with good location. Staff is helpful, plenty of free parking. Typical Courtyard -- clean rooms with lots of workspace. Great business center and good option in the hotel. Really caters to business travelers.

We were very happy with our choice of hotel. It offers breakfast, a bar and a limited evening menu. We were in town for a car event and the locales were nearby, so our hotel choice was about location, not previous reviews. The room was spacious and clean. We enjoyed a light breakfast both mornings and prices were fine. Unlike...

Came to this Courtyard for a birthday weekend getaway. When we checked in Dom asked us why we were in town. After hearing it was for my birthday he offered a free appetizer. He then brought me a birthday card and piece cheesecake and sang happy birthday to me. We normally are Hampton Inn regulars but this stay has rethinking...

Highly recommend the Courtyard Central! Approx. 1 week before, we lost our meeting space for a med-size Corporate Meeting and without missing a beat Jaimie L. was able to accommodate our 20 guests, breakfast & lunch menu & A/V needs flawlessly. She was professional and kept our budget in mind. The catering staff were extremely friendly and attentive during both...

This was a good meeting place for our group. The bar/lobby area was a perfect rendezvous place to prepare for leaving for dinner. Max and Jaimie were great meeting coordinators. They were there for my every question and concern both in planning and execution stages. Valdo and Ed took care of my every need and always with a smile. The...

My husband and I stayed at the Courtyard San Diego Central from 3/3/17 to 3/5/17 to attend a training at the Sharp Auditorium across the parking lot which was very convenient. The staff treated us like we were their only clients and were a part of their family! The lady at the registration desk referred us to Anny's Hamburgers and...

Just returned to England from another very enjoyable stay here. Despite the pool area being renovated (our fault for not enquiring or returning here the same time as last year..), Sandy and her team were faultless as ever, even when we had water coming through the room ceiling during the torrential rain last Monday, and quickly moved us into another...

Nice looking property, well maintained. Location not too far from the city and certainly better hotel than the usual chain places on Hotel Circle. One issue we had: the electronic card keys were often quirky and did not always open the outside doors from the parking lot or the pool area patio. Once, an employee had to open the door...

We stayed here with my son's hockey team.... our service from Jaimie on the front side was incredible! She was very quick to respond to any questions we had and offered lots of great advice. She took very good care of us all. I can't say enough about the staff at this hotel.... from the fabulous front desk staff especially...
