“Decent for an airport hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

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...

Enjoyed staying at this property. As expected of a Marriott property, it is clean, safe, and allowed us a comfortable stay. It is tucked away in one of the business districts in downtown San Bruno and is close to many shops and restaurants along the main road which is El Camino Real. Freeways are also accessible and downtown San Francisco is about a 20-minute drive. Would definitely stay here again.

My family (husband, 2 teenage boys, and me) stayed here just one night recently for one of the boy's soccer tournaments. This was the team hotel, so we had no choice about where we stayed & I didn't even read the TripAdvisor reviews beforehand. So I was pleasantly surprised to find a hotel that had lots of amenities and was so elegantly appointed.

We splurged on a 2-room suite, and I was really glad we did. Having a living room to hang out in made our stay so much more comfortable, especially as we all have somewhat different sleep schedules. The microwave proved a great boon for a late-night snack for the boys (popcorn). Our room faced the internal courtyard & was very quiet, but even the street-facing rooms would probably have been fairly quiet, as the hotel is not on a main drag.

The courtyard itself was very pleasant; quiet clumps of guests hung out there throughout the day & into the evening. A pool & jacuzzi drew families. The spacious lounge area off the lobby provided ample space for hanging out, watching TV, plugging in one's laptop, or buying a coffee or glass of wine at the hotel restaurant. We had breakfast there in the a.m. (cost not included). It was not 4-star dining, but wholly adequate, and the service was very friendly.

In a word, I'd stay here again in a heartbeat -- especially if I had a very early SFO flight to catch. We were very close to the airport & planes flew right overhead, but during the night I only heard one or two (& I sleep very badly as a rule). The windows are quite thick. But it's such a pleasant place to stay, I was kind of sorry it was just for one night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the courtyard.

Typical Marriott: clean and comfortable with all the amenities we have all come to expect these days. It's off the main street but very close to all major freeways, shopping, and the SF Airport. It is nestled in an area of office buildings. It's close to a freeway so try to get a room facing the courtyard rather than an exterior room along the freeway side. As we ate all meals out I can not tell you about the food. To find good restaurants check out Millbrae and South San Francisco here at trip advisor.

Stayed here for three weeks during 2011 on a business trip. Pretty scenic location and pretty close to the San Francisco airport, with ample parking. Gym was also neat and good. Restaurant there has limited options menu, but it was good. The stay is still memorable. They do give you a drop at the Airport with their cab. No hassles during my stay there.

Room Tip: Dont remember room number, there is one stretch of rooms close to the highway on the north which mig...

I visited this hotel almost a year ago and the service has remained consistently good. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable hotel with great service in the San Francisco Airport area, this is it. It has a wonderful lobby that has one of the best business areas I have used. The cafe/bar has a great offering - far beyond your standard Courtyard expereince. Rooms are clean, well maintained and very comfortable beds. Convenient layout for getting work done as well. Need a ride to/from the airport - free shuttle with very friendly staff. Desk staff equally friendly and helpful. Walking distance to several reasonable restaurants - Chili's on the corner, Jack's and a brewhouse a few blocks down.
