“Relatively good value - but not a steal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

I haven't been in the bay area for a few years and was staggered at the prices being charged for hotels in the city. As my business was both in San Rafael as well as downtown I opted to stay in larkspur. At $200 a night I still feel it is expensive for what it is.
Plus points;
Location - close to freeway but in a quiet neighbourhood. Easy access to San rafael /Novato as well as the city. Right next to the ferry into the city and there is a bus to and from SFO.
Courtyard model - this is definitely at the better end of courtyards. Rooms are fine, wifi throughout and a comfortable lobby area.
Minus points:
The bar / restaurant are poor in terms of value and selection. However literally across the street is lovely upscale shopping area with a variety of restaurants and a nice bar by the Marin Brewing Company. Nowhere for breakfast it should be noted though.

I'd definitely stay here again. Expensive for the standard but it seems that's te market in San Francisco at the moment.

Stayed at Courtyard Larkspur for second time in month and was pleased again. Ate at restaurant - very basic but so nice to have. Room clean, great wifi, really good working area. And lots of outlets - both at desk and nightstands. Highly pleased with this little hotel.

I stayed here six nights recently for a family wedding. I like the Courtyard chain, and this particular motel easily lived up to Courtyard standards. The room was clean and spacious with a work area and easy chair, and the closet had plenty of hangers; there was also plenty of drawer space. The motel staff were very friendly and helpful. The motel is also ideally situated within a few minutes' walk of a small shopping center that includes some good, informal places to eat, and also within a short walk of the ferry to San Francisco. It's also very near the Airporter bus stop from the SF airport, so it is very easy to get from the airport to the motel.

The key to this particular Courtyard is the location. Walking to the Ferry, and walking to the Town Centre. Try the bakery which has the BEST muffins and scones in the Bay area! The outdoor fireplace is a very nice touch for the cool evenings in the North Bay. The balcony was sort of a disappointment as the furniture was a bit dated.

I know it's a pricey area, but $175/night is more than I ever paid, I guess I'm just not used to that. Doesn't even include any kind of breakfast. Booked here to attend a wedding with the "special rate".

That being said, everything about the hotel was fine. Comfortable, clean, good wifi, courteous staff, plenty of parking.

This hotel is clean including VERY comfortable beds, refrigerator is an added bonus and convenient location with walking distance to ferry and restaurants. The drive is within one hour drive to the wine country. There are also balconies for each room with a nice courtyard, pool, outdoor seating and fireplace. I will definitely stay here again. Despite the fact that during the day it is a little noisy with the cleaning crew and the towels are small and scratchy I would still give this hotel a nice rating. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Request an upper level courtyard view room

We chose this hotel on the Web based on its proximity to the San Francisco ferry and were very happy with our choice. Across the street from the hotel was a shopping area with a 'town centre' where there was Outdoor Jazz on one night, a farmer's market on another day and two delicious restaurants which we loved- Rustic Bakery and Marin Brewers.

The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the staff at the font desk were both friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.
