We have stayed here numerous times and the experience has always been pleasant. The front desk staff is amazing and makes you feel valued from check-in to check-out. The rooms have been remodeled and they are very nice and quite serene. Marriott has merged with Starwood so the prices seem to have gone up.

Minimal on the extras. Old rooms but clean and serviced. Nice lobby. No breakfast included. Ground level hotel. At about 200$ for a night it was relatively expensive for the value. Not sure of the alternatives but would prefer other.

We stayed here after arriving on a late flight from the East Coast and wanting to avoid wasting a lot of money on a room in the city. It is a typical Courtyard Marriott but rooms and bathrooms appeared to be recently updated. Easy parking and a cafe in the lobby that served breakfast items and coffee and wine and...

Nice hotel. Clean and comfortable. Corridors in the hotel are depressive a bit, but this is the only disadvantage. Very nice place to stay if you are in the business trip. Location is very good. Safeway supermarket in a half of mile.

This is a well-located hotel, clean and nicely appointed as expected from a Courtyard Marriott. Decor is modern with newer carpets, wall coverings and other furnishings. Like other Courtyards, it's business oriented with a small lobby/cafe area, no executive lounge. The staff is friendly and efficient. The best thing is its convenience -- easy access to the East Bay as...

We checked in just before 3pm and found this property to be very "fresh". The staff was great and location is about 15 mins from SFO. There are some nice restaurants within walking distance, a Costco next door and the hotel is less than a mile from the walking/biking path along the Bay.
