We checked in just before 3pm and found this property to be very "fresh". The staff was great and location is about 15 mins from SFO. There are some nice restaurants within walking distance, a Costco next door and the hotel is less than a mile from the walking/biking path along the Bay.

We decided to stay here instead of staying in SF where the prices are high. My boy friend is a Marriott Rewards member and they informed him that if he declined maid service he would get extra points. I told him hey we don't need a maid, hahaha! We stood here for our San Francisco vacation for my birthday. Conveniently...

Dear cloudb310, Thank you for your input on TripAdvisor. We appreciate your feedback and share with our team for improvement of our product and services.

I stayed three nights in the Courtyard San Mateo for a business trip, and was one of the better hotels that I have stayed in while traveling for work. The rooms were clean, the wi-fi was speedy and the bar area was a nice place to grab a drink with co-workers with spacious enough tables in the lobby to post...

This is one of the best hotel with the best deal about 15mins from SFO. There is no parking fee, which is hard to come by. Lots of restaurants with 10-15mins drive. Less than an hour to get to downtown SF. It is away from all of the traffic and noise. The room is very nice and clean. We got...

Dear mchai99, We appreciate your comments on TripAdvisor. The Courtyard by Marriott in Foster City is definitely located in a great location; with many restaurants and shops around.

For early flights out of SFO, we like to stay in an area hotel the night before. This is not our usual choice but it was available. I do like Courtyards. They are predictable in what you are getting to a point. The beds were comfortable and the room was fairly soundproof. The vanity area is outside of the bathroom...

The room was good-sized, with a great mattress on the king bed. Functional desk with plenty of space. Great pool. Convenient food in the lobby--while a bit overpriced, the portions were good. Plenty of parking around the hotel in a safe neighborhood.

Ok, I know hotels in the Valley aren't the best value on the planet but these are New York prices for a Marriott Courtyard that is neither unique or exceptional.
