My room was located on the north side of the hotel, not facing the pool. Not a most favorable location. Third floor was nice but there was little or no sunshine in my room. Was a bit disappointing because I was staying there for four or five nights. bistro bar is very disappointing. The food is very limited and they...

Dear Jerzee13, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience regarding your recent stay with us. Luckily we are in short driving distance to restaurants, attractions, and other entertainment in the area but you are correct that not very much of these are accessible on foot. We will certainly look closer into having our Bistro open for lunch...

We recently used this Courtyard for our trip to LEGOLAND. Had so much fun! Hotel was perfect. Swam in pool and got an excellent breakfast. Great service and quiet rooms for my kids naps. Also quiet in evening since my kids go to bed early.

Our family stayed here when we visited Legoland, which is less than 5 minutes away by car. The location is quiet and safe, and we could drive to groceries, restaurants and S. Carlsbad State Beach within 10-15 minutes. The rooms were very clean, we would recommend it to other families visiting the area.

Having stayed at numerous other Courtyards in the past, this one certainly follows the same attributes to a tee: comfortable, spacious, and adequate. I am a sucker for balconies, and my room offered a small one. The lobby area was rather generous, which was perfect for my union with friends. And to cap it off, the front desk offered freshly...

The helpful and friendly staff were everywhere. Comfy beds and nice rooms. The A/C on the window just blows there - those controls don't work there. There's a thermostat on the opposite wall which I discovered embarrassingly after calling for help. They came immediately.
