They one thing most people like about Courtyards is that they all the same in layout, décor and amenities. That is what I do not like about them. A couple of weeks ago I stayed at one in Connecticut and was a bit revolted by the hideous wallpaper: Very dark reddish brown with tan branches floor to ceiling, and annoying pictures od stone walkways and a water spotted huge leaf in the bathroom. Now, in San Diego, the same visual attack hit my eyes.
The room was fairly clean but I was grossed out by the toilet. At first, I thought the blackness in the bottom was something for which I would need to leave this hotel. But it turned out to be a moldy stain from it not being properly scrubbed for a very long time.
Another thing I discovered at Marriot is that there is seldom a phone on the desk, but always at the bed. This hotel had (Hooray!) a phone on the desk . . .but it did not work.
The hand soap for the bathroom sink has no soap dish, so in the morning, it was melted into a slimy disgusting pile on the counter top. But the plus amenity was the bath towels. They were great for exfoliating layers of dead skin along with a few layers of live skin.
I have stayed at this hotel before buy I feel it has come down a notch. The staff at check-in was efficient and friendly. But since I have spent hundreds of days in hotels over the past few years I notice what is good or bad. Sorry to say it is just average and not justifiable coverage for the price.
