Stayed here in April 2014 with my wife and children. Had stayed here for work in the past. Hotel is well located near San Mateo, SFO, and San Mateo bridge. It is in a nice, quiet, business park area of town. Grounds well maintained, a nice "courtyard" inside indeed. The lobby was renovated with the new Courtyard look and services... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel when leaving for and returning from a trip to Puerto Vallarta. Rooms are very quiet and we like the bistro/bar for a light dinner or breakfast without having to search for nearby restaurants. The only downside is that you (or your taxi) have to drive on Bayshore Highway to and from the... More

Dear Cambriariter, Your response has been received and I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to write. I hope that you had a great trip to Puerto Vallarta and back. Bay Area traffic is always a challenge, mainly during peak hours. The taxi drivers should take advantage of carpool lanes with two or more passengers in the car. Once again,... More

I travel to the area once a month. Recently this property was sold out so I stayed at the Marriott in San Mateo - you can read my review of that hotel. What I learned was that this Courtyard is an incredible value. The location is so convenient, off and on the highway. There is a CVS within walking distance... More

Cannot quite figure where Courtyard is positioned. Have been in some that are quite fancy, others quite bare-bones. This is a comfortable hotel, with good location near Foster City and San Mateo. Short drive to SFO. Good sized fitness center, very helpful front desk personnel. I don't get the lobby bar - bistro idea. Not sure if this is in... More

We stayed here as a weekend getaway with the family. The hotel fit our needs perfectly. The staff was friendly and the check in and out was smooth. The kids loved the indoor pool. The room was comfortable and quiet. I thought this was going to be a one off event. It will so well that we will be back.

We were looking for a nice hotel with free parking to explore San Francisco and the Bay area. The Courtyard fit perfectly. However, I would not recommend this hotel if you do not have a car--drive to the city is about 20 minutes and there is no airport shuttle.
