We decided to stay here instead of staying in SF where the prices are high. My boy friend is a Marriott Rewards member and they informed him that if he declined maid service he would get extra points. I told him hey we don't need a maid, hahaha! We stood here for our San Francisco vacation for my birthday. Conveniently... More

I stayed three nights in the Courtyard San Mateo for a business trip, and was one of the better hotels that I have stayed in while traveling for work. The rooms were clean, the wi-fi was speedy and the bar area was a nice place to grab a drink with co-workers with spacious enough tables in the lobby to post... More

This is one of the best hotel with the best deal about 15mins from SFO. There is no parking fee, which is hard to come by. Lots of restaurants with 10-15mins drive. Less than an hour to get to downtown SF. It is away from all of the traffic and noise. The room is very nice and clean. We got... More

For early flights out of SFO, we like to stay in an area hotel the night before. This is not our usual choice but it was available. I do like Courtyards. They are predictable in what you are getting to a point. The beds were comfortable and the room was fairly soundproof. The vanity area is outside of the bathroom... More

Room was ok but it smelled funny due to construction, the spa not working and there was nothing offered to make up for it with the exception of a sorry nothing we can do. Asked for a second level floor got a first and the people above us were so loud that I had to call at 12:30 AM and... More

The room was good-sized, with a great mattress on the king bed. Functional desk with plenty of space. Great pool. Convenient food in the lobby--while a bit overpriced, the portions were good. Plenty of parking around the hotel in a safe neighborhood.

Ok, I know hotels in the Valley aren't the best value on the planet but these are New York prices for a Marriott Courtyard that is neither unique or exceptional. The only explanation is commonly called "profiteering". I'm a long time Marriot Rewards member (Lifetime Elite) and when I asked if an upgrade was available at these prices the response... More

We were in the area on vacation and needed a place to stay for one night before our flight home. The staff were very nice, and the room was clean and comfortable.

I'd been warned. The property is under construction until sometime in July. However, the location was OK so I gave it a shot. There was noise but I discount that inconvenience because I knew it was going to happen. I did find the A/C troublesome. I think the filter needs cleaning because when it kicked on, I started sneezing and... More
