I stayed here on a family trip to celebrate my daughter's birthday in San Francisco. This was about the only place that we could find that would accommodate a family of 5, and it worked out great. We had a high floor with a superb bay view. There are lots of great shops right out the door. Travel tip: board... More

This hotel is in a great location with plenty of dining choices and opposite a shopping area and cinema. Modern and clean lobby with very friendly staff who were great at recommending restaurants and advice on local travel and even provided us with a map to the nearest BART station. The room was spacious and clean with plenty of wardrobe... More

Great location and a good lobby area. The food served is of a decent quality. The rooms and bathrooms are in desperate need of updating. They may be clean, but they are very warn. I wouldn't stay here again given the rooms unless it was very cheap or updated.

Thank you for staying at our hotel and for posting a review. Thank you also for the top marks you gave us for service and cleanliness. We are in the planning stages for a complete renovation of our guest rooms, bathrooms and corridors in early 2015. It will be a new room package for Courtyards, with some really cool elements...

I've stayed here now on multiple trips and its a great hotel. It's easy to get in and out and it's close to shopping and restaurants. The rooms are comfortable and fairly typical for a Marriott Courtyard. They have a nice little grill in the lobby where you can grab a quick meal. The only issue with this hotel is... More

Nice updated interior, close to the mall in Emeryville so there were (chain) restaurants within walking distance. The bed was very comfortable!! Room was smallish, but had a sofa and desk which came in handy on a business trip. The rate was much less expensive than downtown Oakland, but there was plenty of traffic even at 10:30 am. so allow... More

I usually stay at the Marriott or Courtyard in Downtown Oakland, but both were sold out during my recent business trip. The Courtyard in Emeryville was the closest Marriott property without having to go into overpriced San Francisco. I have to say that I was very satisfied with my stay. The property is very up to date and the lobby... More

Spent 5 days here and was very satisfied. Staff was super friendly. Location is right across bay from San Fran, just off the freeway. Across the street is new retail development with some restaurants. IKEA 1 block away. Very big modern lobby. Rooms are well maintained. Breakfast in morning was tasty, and served very fast. I would definitely stay here... More

Hotel room is very clean and smells clean although it's dated. Wish there was a fridge in the room or maybe free water (room water is $3 a bottle). Bathroom is very generous in size but nothing fancy. We have king size room with a sleeper couch (but no kids this trip). We have a water view across the freeway... More

Thank you for staying at our hotel and for the great comments and scores you gave us on cleanliness and location. We do have refrigerators in about one-quarter of our rooms, plus some extras to deliver for specific stays. We find that enough to meet the requests for refrigerators and to be ecological, rather than using electricity to run one... More

We had a good experience at this Courtyard. The room was basic but comfortable, everything worked and the staff was helpful. We like the location with some shopping and restaurants nearby and a stop for the free Emeryville shuttle, perfect for getting to BART, very close to the hotel.

This is a tired venue with average housekeeping at best and views that claim to be of the water but really include the freeway. Nothing terribly wrong but it's not "economy" in the truest sense and this is the first time I've stayed in a Courtyard that I've known I wouldn't care to return. Front desk was helpful but my...

Thank you for staying with us, and for the feedback. I am sorry that our associate didn't go to another first aid station to get you a bandaid, as we have one in each department. They could also have recommended the Trader Joe's grocery store next door. I'll remind them at our next meeting that little things mean a lot,... More
