Plenty of parking and very close to stores including a grocery store, gas station and restaurants. Within walking distance to McDonald's for quick and cheap bite to eat. No visible indications of the need for any updates or repairs. Check in desk staff was quick and accommodating with our special request to be close to our family's other room. Always... More

This hotel is located between San Francisco and the wine country with easy access to either one. A Safeway store and McDonald's are within walking distance. Rooms are clean and spacious. Staff was kind and pleasant The outdoor firepit was a great place to enjoy a glass of wine outside in the evening.

Nice location in the Novato area amongst the hills. First time to the bay area. 20-25 minute drive into San Fran was not a problem and is virtually a straight shot on highway. California drivers would not get away with the way they tailgate in this area and I soon find out it is endemic to California as a whole... More

This is a very nicely done hotel which has some surprising disappointments. The location is great, next to a shopping center with a fine variety of restaurants to choose from. The interior has been renovated and looks great. BUT... 1 - for a $269 per night rate, you would certainly expect a microwave in the room in addition to the... More

Stayed here to make it easy to get into the wine country and then head for Sacramento. It was situated close to the highwway, an easy drive to the Valley's and plenty of food and coffee shops near by. The room was great, got one with a balcony, and very clean.

Room was comfortable in size, staff friendly and helpful, but the night we stayed there 5 wedding parties were checked in. A bit loud at the pool so if you stay here, ask for a room on the front side of the hotel. I will say the sheets are low quality...a bit scratchy, but the A/C worked great, room clean,... More

Renovated lobby is very nice-upscale and soothing. Front-desk staff were very helpful and efficient. I stressed my desire for a quiet room and was assured my room would meet that need. The room faced the freeway and gas station; as a result, with the exception of a few hours, the road noise was pretty steady. On the other hand, I... More

Since our usual accommodation was booked for the night, we decided to try this Courtyard, Marriott. We had high-hopes when we walked into the lobby. The lobby looked nicely appointed, clean and modern. Looked as though the whole hotel was recently renovated. But that is where the best experience ended. Thankfully, the only night we stayed there will be our... More

I stared here directly after a stay at a similar Courtyard in San Diego. I could not be as positive about this experience. I did not sleep well as there were a group of teenagers in a room opposite me who behaved anti socially for the two nights that I was there. Although the hotel cannot be held entirely responsible...

This is one of the hotels where they have upgraded the lobby and the rooms, but the halls, maybe not. Comfortable, clean and consistent with Courtyard's standards. Front desk personnel were very nice, quick and courteous. But this was California, after all...
