This Courtyard is less than 30 minutes from Napa and Sonoma and offers decent rates with good amenities. There's an indoor hot tub and an outdoor heated pool You're close enough to walk to some decent restaurants for all of your meals.

We were looking for a hotel somewhere between San Fran and the wine Country . This was not my first choice but happened to be one of the very few available that I could use my Marriott points for. How lucky was I. Nice clean property within walking distance of four restaurants and a Safeway. The desk staff were very... More

Checked in after a 20 flight from one of Marriott's best hotels in former Soviet Georgia, Tbilisi into Marriott Courtyard. Pleasant enough checkin but in the room needed some care. At checkin I was told there would be a complimentary breakfast in the lobby. in the room, he sink would not drain and the coffee maker would only make one... More

I actually choose this hotel after seeing several others. This hotel is right across the street from the main airporter main station (airporter is a convenient shuttle service for people in Marin county to access San Francisco international airport). So it is very convenient if you travel here by air plane. Walk to the nearby groccery Safeway is just 3... More

I have spent more than a week's worth of nights at this hotel in the past month and have been really pleased with my experience. It is super close to food and groceries, cheaper than staying in San Francisco and a pretty comfortable hotel. Rooms are well-appointed, beds are comfortable and the pool and hot tub area is REALLY nice.... More

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.
