Reviewed 13 March 2015

I loved this hotel to start with - food, room and bar are excellent. Eventually I understood that the staff in this hotel were cheap and they try all silly tricks to get more money from their customers. Inspite of their great location & nice rooms, they got faded in the memory of the travelers - very inflexible staff and...

We stayed twice this year on the start and end of a trip to Mexico. It wasn't quite as upscale as the San Mateo Marriott, but the beds were comfortable and it wasn't far from the airport. Not quite like a Marriott mattress, but still comfortable. It had a corportate feel to it. Not romantic at all, but it was...

I stay here all the time and am a huge fan of Courtyards but I have recently noticed that my furniture at this particular Courtyard is rather sparse. In every other Courtyard that I stay (115 nights last year), I usually have a nice couch and coffee table. Here I have one lonely, uncomfortable chair. A bit disappointing especially when...

Reviewed 20 January 2015

For a Courtyard Marriott, this property was great! The rooms are huge and the staff is very friendly. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom and desk areas were spacious. This hotel is only two floors and I ended up in a room on the ground floor, which I wasn't thrilled with. Otherwise I don't have any complaints. The hotel...

This is a very average hotel. Ok rooms, ok greeting and front desk staff. It is also a good bit overpriced. Joe in the restaurant is a rock star. Very personable and went far out of his way to engage with us and make sure that every one of our needs are met and that we had a good time....

The room was quite big and the bathroom too.It's a very good price for this hotel.Moreover,it has the pool inside and the stuff is friendly.I'd say it's worth staying here.Breakfast is not included and you must pay for it which is also a bit pricy.

The hotel is very nice and clean and well located for my purposes. Mostly positive in my review. The only negatives were the elevators were far away and I used the stairs. Only a problem when you are dealing with luggage. The hotel says microwave and safe, which is true, but the microwave and safe for guest's use is located...

That sums up my review. It's a standard courtyard, but the greatest thing is that there is no charge for parking. This is a rarity around the SFO area, so take advantage. The check-in staff was very friendly as was the lounge staff the next day. I might stay here again given the parking, but other than that it is...
