Enjoyed my stay there since it was close to the airport and offered free parking. Driving to san Francisco wasn't a big deal under low traffic conditions (approx. 20min) but if you get stuck in traffic... you just don't want to know. Apart from that, it is convenient if you intend to visit Santa Cruz and generally the area to...

Hotels in this area seem to be scarce and prices are incredibly high. Although the laws of supply and demand dictate that, hotels that charge $200+ a night should still be obliged to be really good. I was not impressed with this courtyard. It felt old, paper thin walls, ceilings and floors, and the worst part is the bed. The...

This is about seven miles south of SFO. It cost less than an airport located hotel. Cab ride to SFO about $50.00. Nice hotel, great staff, well maintained. And quiet. Supper and breakfast are offered.

Stayed at hotel for convenience to airport. Easy early morning access to SFO was about 15 - 20 min. Hotel has food options immediately across parking lot and shot drive to both fast food and local mall. VISA corporate HQ within 1 mile. Slightly older rooms than other newer/refurbished Courtyards but absolutely clean and nice. Hotel has actual courtyard -...

Was here for a weekend trip to San Francisco, not so far from SFO airport ( just 15 minutes drive). Rooms were neat, clean & hygienic with a pretty good neighborhood. Only reason for not having 5 star rating from my side is there is no room service for ordering food. There is 24 hrs starbucks in hotel which adds...

This is the standard Courtyard Marriott that is conveniently located to restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Nice sized room with couch and refrigerator. But at peak times this property shoots up to $270+ a night - at those prices the price to value plummets. Be sure not to get a room by the smoking areas located by all the...

Rooms very clean with all the right Courtyard amenities. Comfortable pillows. Wish the duvet would be a bit thicker and fluffier. Great service at the bar and coffee. Nice outdoor patio. Great for a drink after work and conversation. Very comfortable stay! Recommend for business or leisure.
