“Great hotel & staff for our last minute stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We stayed here really last minute, after enduring a lengthy delay at San Francisco airport. A member of staff came to collect us from the airport in a shuttle bus & was very friendly & chatty on the short ride back to the hotel. We stayed in a twin queen room, which was very clean & spacious & included a TV, fridge & small patio area. The staff were really accommodating when we told them we were without our suitcases & gave us extra toiletries, toothbrush & toothpaste. Within walking distance to Tanforan mall, which has a Target, Sears & Old Navy (great for us to buy cheap clothes while our suitcases were AWOL!) & a large foodcourt. Behind the mall, there is also a BART station, so it is easy to get into central San Francisco.

We arrived from London quite late because of delays and this place will now be our SFO hotel of choice. Quiet, clean, large and nice rooms, great service and a good breakfast. Easy access to highways. You will not be disappointed at all. The surroundings are green and well-taken care of.

It's a relative cheap hotel for around $100. It was somewhat close to downtown SF and baseball field. I was mainly looking for free parking, because most hotels around downtown SF charged for parking around this price. It didn't have a free breakfast, which I didn't like. There was a great taqueria close by though, Taqueria San Bruno.

Room Tip: choose close to lobby to be close to fitness room and lobby

As a Gold Elite traveler with Marriott, I can give my highest praise to this property! It is in a quiet location ten minutes from SFO, a half mile from the San Bruno BART station and easy access to the freeway. There are plenty of restaurants and shops close by. The property is immaculate and rooms have recently undergone a complete remodel. We have a lovely room overlooking the courtyard, complete with a small balcony with a table and chairs for enjoying the beautiful weather while sipping our morning coffee. The staff is very friendly and I have to give a special shout out to Joe at the front desk for his help and patience in finding me the perfect room for our stay. I am a very picky traveler regarding the location of my room and he accommodated my request to change rooms with a smile and a "happy to help" attitude. I can highly recommend this property for your next stay in the Bay Area.

Nice size rooms in a nice location away from busy El Camino Street. Rooms are a little dated. The Bistro staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean. The elevator is located at the far end of the hotel away from the lobby. So, you will get your exercise if your room is on the second floor over the lobby. The lobby staff could be a little friendlier, too business oriented instead of "welcoming". Travelers need a friendly smile after a long journey. Conveniently located to SFO, Bart, and other mass transportation.

The people at the Courtyard really try hard to make the San Bruno location a good business hotel. This was made more difficult by a balky WiFi and wired Internet system provided by iBahn. It was simply non-functional in about half the hotel, and iffy elsewhere. I eventually got a room with a decent WiFi signal so that I could get work done, but I couldn't get functional wired Internet, so no chance of doing sensitive work. Adding to the problem is the generally poor cell reception in the area, which is outside of the hotel's control, but something that may impact your ability to do work.

The hotel tried everything they could to make it better, and succeeded the best they could. The staff was friendly and polite, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the menu at the restaurant was limited but well prepared.

I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Some rooms have better cell service than others. Check with the staff.

After visiting with our daughter's family in southern Oregon we drive to this Marriott for it's proximity to San Francisco Airport. One can check in the rental car at the airport the night before and take the 4:15 a.m. shuttle to the airport for the early flights back east! The property is spotless and the staff are always courteous and helpful! In addition, there are plenty of eateries nearby. We usually to choose to walk a block or so to the local Chili's and get a decent meal before bedtime!

Room Tip: Reserve early if your plans permit since this is a popular location for folks flying out of the airp...
