This was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at! Seriously, I heard so many people go up to the front desk and tell them how much they loved the service, the people, and the food! The bar tender Ben and the Manager Alex took such good care of all their guests! I would 1,000.01% stay at this...

Our room was given to some other guest with the same surname and had a little trouble checking in... It is given Courtyard hotels have no breakfast buffet included but our hotel room is nice and clean... Careful, the water bottles aren't for free. Please don't accidentally drink them like I did.. Lol.

I had a great experience at the Courtyard. It was very clean and quiet. The beds were comfortable and the whole place was spacious. The staff was very helpful, especially Parker Laney. Even though it seems business-oriented, the hotel was a great place for the whole family.

I stayed at this hotel for ~ 7 weeks recently while I was on business. The staff in all aspects of the hotel were excellent - professional, helpful and friendly! The operations manager (way to go Alex!) is absolutely fantastic making sure that the guest needs are being met. Recommend staying here!

This Courtyard is probably the best hotel in the Kearny Mesa area. It's frequently sold out. It is very clean. The bar is small but decent. Same with the restaurant. It's just off the 163, and very near to all the fantastic Asian restaurants and grocery stores in the area.

Not a great experience, I did mobile check in but once I got there nothing was ready. The check in process took forever because of that. Then in the middle of it the two workers started arguing over if the breakfast area was open the next day or not and stopped them to tell them I was going to use...

Oswaldo and other staff members took care of our group from start to finish. Added a little Christmas touch to the tables. Food was great. Mesa Room was perfect for a meeting of 20 plus, plenty of room for food and area to move around.

Marriott is my preferred brand, because the hotels almost always meet my (high) expectations. Sometimes, my expectations are pleasantly surpassed and I am wowed, which is the case with the Courtyard San Diego Central. I always expect staff to be pleasant and accommodating; however, so many of the staff specifically asked how our stay was going - as if they...

Ben was very friendly, funny and honest. My husband gave Ben a tip and some bills stuck together and Ben gave him back the extra and would not take anymore for being honest. We had a great time! Very luxurious hotel!

A huge thank you to Jaimie Lindquist for making sure our soccer team's stay was exceptional . We owe you a debt of gratitude for making sure breakfast grab bags were ready at 5:00 am and for going above and beyond the call of duty.
