    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard San Diego Old Town

    Courtyard not bad at all!!!!!

    from

    I booked this thru Priceline, and received an excellent price. The hotel staff was excellent. They were very courteous and helpful. I called ahead of time and requested two queen beds, a non-smoking room and early check-in. I was allowed to check in at 10:30 a.m. They also gave me a late check out Although I did have a room facing the expressway, the noise did not bother me. This location is convenient to everywhere, approx 10 minutes from the airport. The pool is REALLY SMALL but we enjoyed it anyway. The entire location was also very clean. Lastly, don't bother paying for parking, I was always able to find a free spot on the streets adjacent to the Courtyard with no problem everynight. If you rent a car, there is a Target, Walgreens and numerous fast food places approx 5 minutes away.

    Ok stay

    from

    Its true, the hotel sits almost right on the freeway. I was not expecting that at all. The room was nice and clean. The staff was excellent! The pool was very small and crowded. It is walking distance to all that Old Town has to offer. Next time I think we'll try the Hacienda though.

    Freeway noise and small pool

    from

    This hotel is good for one reason..... location. It's two-three blocks from Old Town Mexican Cafe and Casa de Bandini (the best Mexican food in SD!) and 15 minutes from downtown and the airport.

    Now the bad news....it's right by the main SD freeway I-5. Most of the rooms on the outside will have freeway noise. Also the pool...if you can call it that...looked like an oversize bath tub! It's was the smallest I have ever seen. The hot tub could fit 6 people max. I will not be staying here again. If you can afford it stay, stay at the Crystal Pier and enjoy the views!!!

    Working Downtown, Historic Atmosphere at "Home"

    from

    I was thrilled to find this hotel. Having stayed previously at the Residence Inn Downtown for a week in April, I thought I could do better, and indeed I did. This place is a couple of blocks from the Old Town State Historic Park which is lively in the evenings with restaurants and shops. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I requested a room with a kitchen, and got a roomy, recently renovated one-bedroom suite with refrigerator and microwave. The patio restaurant was a convenient place to relax after a day at work. Yes, I was working downtown... I commuted daily for three weeks by trolley which was a ten-minute walk from the hotel. My only quibble: The Internet access in the very small and stuffy business center costs a minumum of $3.95 for 15 minutes. And, to add insult to injury, every time you log on, the company puts a hold for $30.20 on your credit card!!

    Service is exceptional!

    from

    Our stay at the Courtyard Marriott Old Town started at the airport. We called for a shuttle to the hotel and Mark picked us up in just a few minutes. He is the Consierge for the hotel and a wealth of information and courtesy. We had the occasion to use the restaurant everyday and since I couldn't walk, Mark shuttled us to and from the trolley stop, restaurants and the airport. Everyone we came in contact with was courteous and friendly, especially Ron and Dan in the restaurant. Jennifer at the front desk was very helpful and she was always smiling. Do yourself a favor, stay at the Courtyard Marriott Old Town, quiet, friendly, clean and good food too.

    Very Nice, Great Location, Friendly Staff

    from

    My friend and I were both very pleased with the friendly staff. The hotel was very nice and clean for the price we paid. Great location to everything. Within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Easy highway access. We would definately stay there again, but ask for a room on the otherside of the highway...less noise from the highway traffic.

    The staff was excellent!

    from

    When we first arrived at the hotel we were put in a one story building and the room was dirty, however we asked to be changed and they quickly transferred us to a beautiful room in the main building. The hotel staff is exceptional and the hotel is located in a beautiful area. It is close to all the Old Town atractions, a catholic church, the highway, and many fabulous resturants. I would definatly recamend this hotel, especially because it isn't very expensive and you get so much for your money.

    Great location

    from

    Fantastic location and great new look. I heard its under new management, and it looks like the management is doing wonders for this hotel!

    The staff is exceptionally nice

    from

    The hotel is undergoing a revamp and so things are a bit dusty and sometimes, noisy, but that will go away. What I hope does not go away is the manager (Archie) and the staff. Everyone, including Archie, was warm and helpful.

    Only breakfast and dinner is now served, but the food was exceptional for a hotel. The waiters were terriffic. Food isn't really a problem because there are dozens of restaurants within walking distance, but we found ourselves lingering on the patio mornings just to enjoy the area and the people.

    I do a great deal of traveling and I have found that the attitude and service are a direct reflection of individual management and not that of a chain's bureaucracy. Kucos to the management here. You will have tender loving care.

    Holiday Inn Old Town Review

    from

    I would never stay here again.... The accommodations were clean, but it lays right on the San Diego freeway. We listened to traffic all night, and then you have the 3:00am train that also goes through the room with whistle blowing full.

    As strong as a person of faith, courage, or will-power can be; loneliness seeps in like a thief in the night and random things, memories, emails, even past conversations that have come to define you in that relationship come back to haunt you.

    ... guests travelling to Legoland and Seaworld. I must say we were extremely disappointed with this tour as we were the last to be dropped off and the first to be picked up. We arrived at San Diego Zoo at 12:30 and were picked up at 4:30pm. For the amount of money that we payed this was extremely disappointing. We made the most of our 4 hours and saw most of the attractions and animals. We started with a ride on the Skyfari, this is just like the sky rail in Kuranda. You hop in a ...

    This morning everyone seemed to be struggling a bit to get to our meeting point on time but we eventually all got there. We went straight to Walmart to get some groceries which was quite an achievement considering the state of some people but we got it done. Then we left on our way to San Diego. On the way the scenery slowly became more hilly and surprisingly green. We went through a small town that had quite a large fire burning, whether it was back burning or unintentional ...
