“Great Location for Touring San Francisco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We found the hotel to be a bargain for touring San Francisco. Stayed 2 nights and found the staff very friendly and the hotel very nice and clean. The area is very nice too and has convenient restaurants across the street. The ferry to San Francisco is very close too, but we opted to drive in - leaving early to avoid the crowds. Also - the ferry (on weekends) leaves too late and comes back too early. No parking fee either which is a bonus. Would highly recommend this to people who don't mind driving in to San Francisco. Muir Woods is close by too which is a beautiful place to visit.

Loved the hotel and staff. Super clean and friendly. Not knowing the location I was very surprised to find it close to San Quentin prison:( which to me being a parent to small kids was kind of uncomfortable. The food center across the way was excellent with a Starbucks. The farm shop restaurant was really good but expensive. The jacuzzi was great being enclosed. The ferry landing also is right across the street to take you into San Francisco.

spahl495, General Manager at Courtyard by Marriott Larkspur Landing San Francisco Bay Area, responded to this review, September 5, 2013
We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay, the hotel, and our staff. As you recognized, we have a great location with many opportunities to enjoy your day both in the hotel, and the surrounding area. I do want to acknowledge your concern regarding the proximity of San Quentin to the hotel. The hotel has never experienced an issue in regards to San Quentin in 27 years. The area is very secure, and recently many upscale homes have been built nearby, as the landscape is beautiful and the views spectacular. The location has in no way affected the demand for this prime real estate. I hope that this response gives you peace of mind, and you will consider returning to the hotel in the future.

Stayed one night to go to the races in Sonoma. Great location, friendly staff, shopping center with restaurants and stores across the street. Nice room. Overall, really nice. Will stay again next year.

Perfect home-away-from-home. Third time now that I'm spending some 10 days for a combination of business and pleasure in Bay Area. I will continue to choose Courtyard in Larkspur, very friendly hotel with warm and helpful staff. Appreciate free internet and parking!

We spent a night here on our way up the 101. If we had more time, we would have stayed another night. The location across from restaurants was particularly nice. The service was good, the room looked outdated but clean. We would stay here again.

Spent several nights at this hotel when traveling on business. Each time, the staff was courteous, the rooms clean and lobby clean, and I have not had any issues with any my stays. Nice hotel and great value.

This location was a great find for us. The hotel is clean and comfortable, with a helpful friendly staff. It's priced much less than similar hotels located in SF. Located across the street from a shopping area with a number of good restaurant choices, Starbucks included, the "landing" is a hangout for families and people of all ages for the outdoor live jazz performances on the weekend, a farmers market, and outdoor dining options. It also is a starting point for bikers as we saw many cars in the parking lot carrying bicycles on racks.
In addition, the location is ideal to access the Larkspur Ferry line to San Francisco with a short walk to the nearby harbor area. An excellent way to visit SF without having to deal with driving or parking. Ferry takes 35-40 min. We enjoyed a full day in SF and ferried back in the early evening.
Muir Woods is a short 10-15 minutes drive from the hotel. Its worth getting up early to avoid the crowds and tour buses that pile in, especially in the summer months.
We would definitely return to the Courtyard San Francisco Larkspur Landing!!
