Robin and her team exceeded my expectations. The conference room was neat, clean and well prepared prior to our meeting. The staff was attentive and courteous. i will be using the Courtyard services for future events.

Highly recommend the Courtyard Central! Approx. 1 week before, we lost our meeting space for a med-size Corporate Meeting and without missing a beat Jaimie L. was able to accommodate our 20 guests, breakfast & lunch menu & A/V needs flawlessly. She was professional and kept our budget in mind. The catering staff were extremely friendly and attentive during both...

This was a good meeting place for our group. The bar/lobby area was a perfect rendezvous place to prepare for leaving for dinner. Max and Jaimie were great meeting coordinators. They were there for my every question and concern both in planning and execution stages. Valdo and Ed took care of my every need and always with a smile. The...

My husband and I stayed at the Courtyard San Diego Central from 3/3/17 to 3/5/17 to attend a training at the Sharp Auditorium across the parking lot which was very convenient. The staff treated us like we were their only clients and were a part of their family! The lady at the registration desk referred us to Anny's Hamburgers and...

Just returned to England from another very enjoyable stay here. Despite the pool area being renovated (our fault for not enquiring or returning here the same time as last year..), Sandy and her team were faultless as ever, even when we had water coming through the room ceiling during the torrential rain last Monday, and quickly moved us into another...

Nice looking property, well maintained. Location not too far from the city and certainly better hotel than the usual chain places on Hotel Circle. One issue we had: the electronic card keys were often quirky and did not always open the outside doors from the parking lot or the pool area patio. Once, an employee had to open the door...

We stayed here with my son's hockey team.... our service from Jaimie on the front side was incredible! She was very quick to respond to any questions we had and offered lots of great advice.

Pros: Large clean room with 2 double beds. Beds new and comfortable. Clean carpet. Freshly painted walls, wash basin and vanity adjacent to bathroom itself. Towels large and fluffy. General location does not appear to be high security risk. Nicely renovated older unit. Pool was clean altho not used by writer. Multiple nearby cafe type restaurants --- Mexican and American...

The staff seems better than you'd expect with a very attentive approach and a friendly demeanor. I'm not saying this is the Ritz, but folks here seem to be far better trained and far more helpful than you'd expect at this level of hotel. I like their Bistro, with a decent menu and a good bar with local beer on...
