not happy

$18 charge a day for parking?!?!? there was a small footnote of that on the receipt!? i booked directly through Marriott's website, and it should of said that on the website prior to confirmation! i talked to the front desk person and they only said sorry. they did not help. foam pillows don't feel like foam whatsoever. called house keeper number many of times and no one picked up. called front desk asking for more towels, took them 45 minutes the first night. second night they didn't come at all. there seemed to be no fan in the bathroom to circulate air. there looked to be a vent though.

Room(s) for improvement!

The hotel itself is fine. Rooms were nice and quiet. The beds were very soft and we prefer firm. We talked to the staff and the same matresses were used throughout the hotel. They did put a board under our mattress which helped but still not comfortable. The hotels guidebook stated they had complementary coffee in the lobby from 6-10am. Never got there before 8am, but it was never there either. The Bistro restaurant on the first floor gave me complementary coffee. But it's not advertised. Most people just paid for their Starbucks coffee. The hotel also charged $18 a night for parking. I'm guessing they take in about $2000 a night on that charge. The profit is definitely in the parking. Other than those factors, it's a nice place to stay. Most reviews we read for the hotels in San Diego were not any better!! Sad!!

Great location, friendly service!

I was not familiar with the San Diego area, I wanted a hotel close to Petco Park and the USS Midway as those were the two activities on our agenda for the weekend. COURTYARD BY MARRIOTT - Courtyard San Diego Mission Valley Hotel Circle, was in an excellent location. I arrived and was quickly greeted by friendly staff for check in. I was also given validation for parking for the duration of my stay. Upon entering the room it was very clean and well decorated. My kids had a great time at the pool. Great location, friendly service!

Great location, clean, watch for parking charge

Pros: ourdoor pool
Cons: expensive cafe
We stayed here during NYE weekend. We were very impressed with the location, the cleanliness, and overall feel of the hotel. Unfortunately, we were asked if we were parking & were not but reading previous reviews about how they'll charge you a $16 daily fee even if you told them NO; I was in the lookout for it. What do you know, they slipped a $48 bill under our door the day of check out & the older front desk lady was snappy with me when correcting their mist ake. even though it clearly happens often. Its unfortunate because we loved everything about it up until they try & get more $to out of
