My teachers were recently attending a conference and stayed at the Courtyard San Diego Central. It was only a 10 minute drive from the Town and Country Resort (event location) and teachers could easily jump on and off the freeway. The rooms were excellent, the service was outstanding, and the group coordinator, Robin Villegas, was extremely professional and worked well...

Excellent service. Checking in was a breeze. We needed a microwave and they had it up within the 5mins that we called for it. If you're not facing the pool, the view is not so nice. Comfy bed for a pregnant woman. The heated pool was perfect. Just missing free breakfast!

Dear Amanda P, Sounds like you had a great stay with us, thank you for the review! I am glad you mentioned breakfast. You are correct that we do charge for breakfast since we offer made-to-order, fresh items at our Bistro. We also serve Starbucks coffee, which is not available at brands offering complimentary breakfast. For your next stay, please...

First, I want to start with the pictures do this property no justice. This hotel is very very nice in person, with plenty of nice amenities. It has a nice cafe, bar and many areas within the lobby with TVs to keep everyone happy. Secondly, the pool area is nice and large with many lounge chairs to relax. The jacuzzi...

We had breakfast at the Bistro this morning in Courtyard. The food was good. But the service by Laura Vea made it an extremely pleasurable experience. She was helpful, nice and considerate, everything you would like some helping you to be.

Nice upscale Courtyard. Very clean with excellent customer service. This hotel seemed to have mostly business clients. We stayed because of visiting Sea World with family. Only 15 minutes to most attractions. Very nice pool area and good food in restaurant. Also nice large screen televisions with HD in the rooms. Only thing missing was Fox News on the television.

Stayed one night with our softball team. The rooms were very clean. The menu in the restaurant was diverse, and the quality was high. The staff were smiling and attentive. The pool area is much nicer than other Courtyards I have stayed at. Very positive stay.
