Our first floor room exited directly out on to the courtyard. No carpeting in the rooms, which I liked. I would have liked an electrical outlet near the full-length mirror. I also wish the bistro had longer hours -- although their selections and prices were great. While the rooms are on the pricier side, the location is very good, and...

Overall, the Courtyard Solana Beach is a good choice. Great location- easy walk into town (we were there for a Belly Up concert), and close to the beach. Thumbs up for having outlets on the lamp bases of the nightstands. Thumbs down to the bathroom doors- they're the old school sliding wood panel doors- ours never would close completely, and...

Hello KRISBEOUGH, Thank you for reviewing our hotel. We are glad to know you enjoyed the property and location. We are a 5 minute walk to the beach, a 15 minute walk to the Belly Up, and easy access to the best restaurants in Solana Beach. We also appreciate your feedback about the pocket doors and will work with our...

and ask if any large groups have been booked at the same time. My roommate and I have been sitting in the hotel lobby for almost 3 hours, as when we came in the room wasn't ready (it was before 3, so that was fair), we were advised that it would be an hour (again, fair enough, we were early)....

Keith N, General Manager at Courtyard San Diego Del Mar/Solana Beach, responded to this review

Hello Nes M, We apologize for the wait. We try to accommodate all early check-ins whenever we can. However, when big groups are staying at hotels they tend to be pre-assigned rooms ahead of time as this expedites the check in process for all guests. With that being said, no guest should feel under valued and we apologize for that...

I stayed at Courtyard San Diego Solana Beach during Christmas 2016. When I received the bill before check-out, I told the staff at reception counter that they over-charged "daily parking" as I did not drive. She said that it's ok. However, I subsequently found that my visa is charged on "daily parking". I sent several email asking for refund. I...

I love the location of this hotel. Walkable to a long stretch of beach for people and dog watching. There is also a "design street" a couple of blocks away that will appeal to a lot of people. There are some shopping and restaurants also within walking distance. And it's an easy drive to the restaurants and lots of shopping...

I booked this hotel because of it's proximity to the Del Mar Fairgrounds - 5 minutes or less by car. It was a nice hotel; the room was clean and updated, as was the lobby. Some of the hallways around the guestrooms seemed aged, but likely because they're outside entry and the sea is so close. The real gem here...

Stayed for 2 nights during the week for a business trip. Very friendly staff, clean rooms, updated rooms. However, I can't stay here again as the walls are paper thin.

Hotel was in a great location for our family vacation. It's a very short walk to a nice beach, and an easy drive to restaurants and Whole Foods.

Friendly helpful staff, rooms are spacious and clean. The internet was fast, pool and jacuzzi helped take the stress out of our travel. I was skeptical about noise from the highway, once the door was closed the room was completely quiet. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Great location
