I booked my room from Priceline and paid in full even before I checked in. And on the day of check out noticed that the hotel charged my credit card that they said supposedly for deposit. Informed them and they say will fix it. The next day I got another charge to my credit card for almost the same amount...

New contemporary style and excellent amenities as expected from I'm Marriott. On pricey side $100 plus per night. But you get what you pay for in San Diego as most hotels are run down. Would definitely stay here again on my next visit. Comfy rooms in business district of town. Popular spot for travelers.

This hotel recently finished renovations, and it really shows (in a good way). Everything looks new and well kept. The lobby area has many modern amenities, the rooms have good sized living quarters and bathrooms, a large led TV, and even a small refrigerator. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of power outlets to plug in everything you...

Courtyard is one of the most consistent hotel chains in America. They are always solid. What makes this one better? The people. From the minute I got there, the management and the staff worked so hard to make me feel welcome. Internet was smoking fast. Workout room was clean and updated. The whole experience was great. I will be back...

OShawnessy- Thank you so much for this review. I agree with you completely- any Courtyard is an excellent choice, but where we are able to set our Courtyard apart is our amazing team of employees who work hard everyday to deliver the highest level of customer service.

I am writing this review on behalf of my boss, who was blown away by the service he received at the Courtyard San Diego Central. He was eating breakfast and his suit jacket got caught on the table popping off one of his buttons. He had to be to a very important meeting about 20 minutes from then, so he...

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and well maintained. Don't expect much of a view but the rooms with a balcony are a plus. A nice selection of items at the buffet breakfast. The fireplace near the pool was a great spot to hangout.

Stayed here three nights. Mostly quiet. First morning, they took the trash, did not leave a trash bag, made up the bed, took the bath mat but did not replace, took a paper cup I used, but did not replace, took some of the wash cloths, but did not replace. Breakfast was $$, but quite good. Second day, took trash...

I would recommend this hotel especially if you don't want to be in the hustle of downtown, and pay those downtown parking fees. The property was clean, the rooms were decent size. WiFi was good. There is no complimentary breakfast, we ended up at Sonic (about 1 mi. away) for breakfast. Further down the way are a few restaurants for...
