Nice hotel. Clean..... The only downside was the complimentary breakfast could have been a little better but overall it is a nice property. The fire pit outside is perfect for night reading or chatting.

We made a quick trip down to San Diego during a business trip to LA. I was looking for a reasonably priced, comfortable hotel. While this Courtyard is not in the city center, it was a terrific find! Friendly staff greeted us upon arrival. Our room was very comfortable, complete with a balcony and pool view. The outdoor area was...
