Super convenient location, clean room and friendly staff. I thought this place was great! They have a bistro in the hotel as well as a convenience store area and as many have mentioned, lots of food options right across the parking lot. Great courtyard area, the only bummer was that the fire wasn't burning in the fire pit - would... More

A decent business hotel with attractive surroundings, a nice lobby, clean and comfortable rooms. Two wifi choices, a free one, and a modestly priced faster service. The free service worked fine for streaming HBO go, so unless you're downloading huge files, it's probably adequate. Nearby is a great park for jogging. A good choice all in all.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times during my visit to Foster City for work. The hotel is located in a good location and has a Starbucks and Jamba juice just across the street. There are many other restaurants nearby. The hotel itself is ok. The rooms are comfortable. There is also an onsite gym which I have... More

It's 5:27am and I am awake due to the uncomfortable bed in my hotel room. It is as hard as a rock! I chose this hotel because of the reviews and had stayed here once before about 2-3 years ago. I don't recall the bed being this uncomfortable last visit. The hotel itself is in a convenient location with Starbucks,... More

I stayed here during a busines trip. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. After a busy day, I was able to relax in its lobby, the highlight of the hotel! I noticed the hotel is trying to provide tech-forward service like the big TV in the lobby for weather information, etc. But honestly I suggest this hotel... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
