The room and pool area was nice. Blue fire grill was fabulous!

Front desk staff was unhelpful on multiple occasions. The day spa is mediocre at best and is long overdue for renovations! Indoor facility grout is disgusting and the indoor hot tubs are falling apart!

The pool was way too overcrowded. I think they sell membership to to the pool to the community making it unusable to the hotel guests. There were so many people you could hardly move in it and the water was so cloudy I couldnt even see my feet. Will never go back to this hotel.

Justin helped us when we checked in and was nice and helpful. That was all I like about it. I have stayed in other Courtyards and I was surprised by how it lacked so much compared to the other Courtyards.

The "bistro" is a small fast food type place and their idea of Starbucks is about 5 coffee drinks they make. Their hot tub sits about 4 adults and 1 fire pit. The rooms have no thermostats to control heat/cool, so I was getting up all night trying to get the room warm. The toilet kept making a noise when flushed and when I told them about it, they didn't even apologized. For the amount I paid, I expected it to be like the other Courtyards I have stayed at. I would recommend staying at the Holiday Inn down the street, alot nicer and cheaper.

Cleanliness and breakfast. Staff was friendly. Cleaning staff was very friendly.

Not really, I would not want to use the pool with a bunch of loud kids running around. And I certainly would not use the pool and hot tub right next to loud streets and a freeway. Nothing relaxing. The location was horrible for a relaxing stay.

Hotel was fine. Pretty generic, but, not where I would want to stay on my future vacations.

The pool is very nice and most of the staff are friendly.

They didn't answer their main telephone number, at all, in the days leading up to my arrival. They also do a poor job of warning guests that July 4 fireworks cannot be viewed from the hotel unless you are in a private reserved area. Missing much of the fireworks while exploring the hotel for a non-exclusive vantage point was, needless to say, a bummer. Housekeeping was marginal: some room service items weren't removed, shampoo/toiletries weren't replenished, and drain in shower was clogged with sand upon arrival.

The hotel is in a great location, close to La Jolla and UCSD, and the price was fabulous. We had booked a 'garden view,' to save money, but were given an ocean view, which was gorgeous. We were in a corner, so the room was big, with windows on two sides, but it put us closest to the two nearby highways, so there was a lot of traffic noise late into the night and starting up fairly early in the morning. The AC worked well, with multiple fan strengths, and the bed was really comfortable, with wonderful pillows. The faucet handles at the sink were modern and simple and looked nice, but I was absolutely physically unable to turn the cold water on or off, both because of the dumb design (with only a little 'nipple' on which to gain purchase) and because it was too tight. The fitness room was small but well equipped, although on the second morning there were no cups at the water dispenser. We never went into the restaurant or had room service. All in all, it worked for us, and the pri...

The Country Club golf courses were very peaceful and provided great walking trails with a pond and ducks, sound of birds and beautiful palm trees. Everyone was kind and willing to ensure an enjoyable visit. We were a short distance from Solana Beach, the shoreline  provided a relaxing atmosphere. We will definitely visit again.

Very nice hotel in an ideal location. You can park your car and forget about it (or not bring one). The beach is across the street and the village (Old Del Mar) has everything you need for a long weekend stay.

The lobby and rooms are nice but the property overall feels like it could use a freshening - it's a bit dated. Small quibble though because this really is a terrific place to stay. I'll be back for sure.

Very kid-friendly and the proximity to Legoland was nice. The staff were generally pretty helpful. The gym had a good selection of equipment.

For the price, the room that we had was sub-par. The wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling and the shower was pretty run-down. Although some of the gym equipment had televisions built in, there was limited volume despite the supplying of headphones. Couldn't really hear anything while running on the treadmill.

Nice pool and responsive management. Across from a nice little store that had good fruit and veggies. A mile or so from the beach.

Breakfast was very medicore, only fruit were whole red apples and bananas. Really poor lighting in our room. Light over sink was weak and made me look green, which made me overapply makeup for the wedding. Other family's lights were fine. And the carpet really had this slimy feel when it was wet which was most of the time as the pool was used frequently andthe weird clammy carpet feel never left.

This place was MUCH nicer than I was expecting! Everything was so clean and lovely. The kitchenette was perfect. Very nice bathroom and full closet. The mattress was to die for! I wish I had one at home!! Two TVs...really couldn't have asked for more! The front desk staff was always extremely courteous and friendly. The breakfast was expansive and delicious (although it would be nice if they offered some gluten free cereals or breads). Very impressed!!!

This is by far the best hotel I've ever been to. It's perfectly located for Legoland, though you do need a car for this place, but it's WELL worth your money. Absolutely the best deal as it's a super clean hotel with a friendly and helpful staff and they feed you breakfast and dinner Mon-Thurs with free drinks (including beer and wine!). The food is delicious and there are plenty of options, especially considering they call it a 'continental breakfast' and a 'light meal' for dinner. We saved hundreds of dollars with them feeding my family of four. The atmosphere in the eating area and around the pool area are fun and friendly during the free meal times! I will stay here EVERY time I'm in the area for business or pleasure. I was incredibly impressed with this place that I immediately called the District Manager on the day of our departure to congratulate him on providing a hotel that made our vacation perfect!!!

Prices are average price per night of stay and may not include taxes and fees. "Total" includes our estimate of the taxes and fees. Please verify the total cost on the provider's site before you complete your reservation. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
