The San Diego Courtyard Marriott is located three blocks outside of Old Town, a tacky, tourist trap, below one of its tiniest neighborhoods. The hotel has a small swimming pool and a Jacuzzi, and access to computers in the lobby. While the quality of the desk staff varied, the maid service was excellent, and one desk clerk, Jameson was honest, helpful and engaging. One of the best things about the location is that it is walking distance to the San Diego trolley service, which for $5 will get you anywhere from the northern end of the city, to the border of Tijuana on the south.
The concierge was excellent.
No complimentary breakfast and an overpriced restaurant.
The 176-room Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Old Town combines old-world charm with modern day comfort for both the business and leisure traveler.

Does HotelsByCity recommend this hotel?
The location, just two blocks from the old town, was the attraction for many visitors to this Courtyard. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the employees were friendly and efficient. There are 150 shops and restaurants to explore nearby. So the swimming pool was the perfect place to relax after sightseeing or a day of work. Most clients said they would stay here again and had no hesitation in recommending this property to others. Read our customer reviews below
