Check it Out! “Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Del Mar/Solana Beach” Explicit Review

There are many families with children because it was during summer break, and also there was a horse race being held near the hotel.


Th hotel was 25 minutes away from San Diego International Airport and a short walk away from the highway exit. It is close to the beach and my favorite restaurants. You can also walk to Delmar’s racecourse. In addition, there are many restaurants that are organic-oriented. You can also get to famous surfing areas easily.

A shopping center three minutes away from the hotel.

A sandwich shop that also sells alcohol which was open until late at night.

A drug store called CVS.


This hotel is rather reasonable, and I stay here very often. It’s located in a very good location, and it’s close to the beach, everyone is friendly, and so many other good things about staying here. I also like the hotel rooms. Even if you stay on the first floor, you will have privacy. There were many people staying at this hotel to go to the Delmar Racecourse. It is a hotel that I can recommend with confidence and I would like to come back again as well.
