“Lovely Courtyard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

In our travels to the Oakland/Berkeley area we usually stay at the Doubletree Berkeley Marina. This time we tried out the Courtyard by the Oakland airport. We very much liked the hotel. Our room was spacious, the bed wonderfully comfortable, and the lobby and furnishings new.

There is a Starbucks in the lobby along with a "take-out" restaurant and lounge. In the morning we purchased a yogurt parfait (kind of like at McDonalds), oatmeal, and coffee and took it outside to the garden and pool area. There were lots of comfy chairs, pretty landscaping, and it was surprisingly quiet. Very enjoyable.

As others have said, the location is a neighborhood in flux. The auto entrance is on the main street to the airport, which has a lot of nice buildings and redevelopment. The other three sides are certainly not inviting. But we had a rental car so the location wasn't an issue.

Lots of computer terminals in the lobby -- two dedicated to printing boarding passes. In the morning there was free coffee in the lobby, so no need to purchase the Starbucks.

Friends of mine came to San Fran for work, but this hotel was the cheapest ones available on their company's preferred list of hotels, so they stayed at this hotel. I decided to go visit them while they're there for work, so naturally, i will stay in the same hotel as they were.

This hotel was a disappointment in terms of service. I was trying to reserve a room with double bed, but was told that they only had king size bed but i was informed that there would be a couch in the room that can be turned into a bed. I arrived there, and found no couch or pull out bed, so i was explaining my situation to the front desk, but before i can even finish telling the night manager on duty, he's already shaking his head trying to argue with me. Granted he still make a note on my request.

the next night, i came back to the room, and still did not see any pull out bed. So the next day, while i was out sightseeing, i called from fisherman's wharf to find out if i have a pullout bed and i was told that there should be one in the room. I came back to the hotel that night, still no pullout bed. Luckily, there was another lady at the front desk at the counter, and she helped me getting the pullout bed.

Another problem i had was that i came back to my room and saw no shampoo or soap at all in my room after i've already gone to the shower. So i had to dry up, and called the night manager, and he said he's by himself, and nobody to take the shampoo/soap to the room. So i went to the front desk myself, and he's getting all aggravated because he's by himself, and phone calls were coming in like crazy and couldnt find any shampoo. I mean, how is a hotel like marriott does not have any shampoo? The manager was scrounging around for soap/shampoo in the drawer like a mad men.

The hotel is okay, but the service at night is really bad. I dont know how the service is during the day, but the night manager really need to have some training on how to deal with customer.

I wouldnt stay here for vacation, but good enough for a night stay if you're stucked on a long layover at OAK. The hotel is about 5 mins away.

Nice business hotel with good rooms and comfortable beds and pillows, cleanliness very good.
Breakfast served is OK, not a big variety of options though, but basic and sufficient quantity.
The entrance is not particularly good, as you need to drive down from the back side of the hotel to come to the portico and reception. Not the best of entrance.
Hotel staff is courteous, friendly and professional. Some good places to eat around at walking distance.

New, nice and clean with great beds/pillows, walking distance for food. Nice outdoor pool and gym.Has a good food/snack place inside hotel. Don't like the gate entrance from street & exit out.Total hassle. Guess it keeps you safe in a bad part of town.

Spent a Tuesday and Thursday night here recently due to proximity to Oakland airport. This and all other hotels in the area are very close to the terminal. Hotel staff at the Courtyard is top-notch accommodating and friendly. The Bistro staff is the best I have seen at any Courtyard by far. On the first night there were no issues. On the second stay I was in a room at the far end of the property and there was a dog barking all-night long, apparently from an adjacent property. This was very disruptive. Do not take a room at this part of the hotel. It is 50/50 on if I would stay here again. Rooms are typical Courtyard sized. TV is OK with respectable selection of channels. Food options in area are very limited. Hotel did pick up at rental car drop off which is courteous and runs shuttles often.

Good service. Clean hotel ,close to airport. Will definitely recommend hotel. The front desk gentleman was very helpful . Got a early morning 4 am shuttle from hotel.
Got a good distressed passenger rate from front desk as well as my flight was cancelled. The airline did not get us reduced rates as it was the lack of air traffic controller and not the airline mistake.The folks at Marriott helped.

Stayed 1 night on business. Very clean. Nice decor in lobby and bistro. Room was spacious, although the set up is different with the bed facing the windows. Bathroom amenities were skimpy. Just the basics. Very clean. Hallways are kinda noisy though. Everytime someone was going by sounded like it was in my room. $8 for parking I believe. I used the shuttle to and from the airport. The neighboorhood is sketchy but the hotel is gated. Quick to airport too. Definitely would stay here again. Service was wonderful. Everyone was smiling and courteous.
