Check-in was efficient. The Lobby was done up in appealing colours. Ample parking space outside, although some patches were unlit and get quite dark. Several dining options in the vicinity. Our rooms were spacious and clean, as were the bathrooms. Beds were comfortable; we had a good night's rest. Gym was adequate. ATM machine in the lobby debited my card...

We have decided that we don’t like the Courtyard by Marriott brand. We like to have breakfast included in our room price and it is not at Courtyard by Marriott. Also we like to have a microwave and Courtyard by Marriott does not have them in the rooms. A 50¢ charge for local calls is annoying. The Internet included in...

Thank you for your review and for staying with us. First I would like to apologize for not meeting your expectations. I would like to let you know that most courtyards offer a rate that includes breakfast. Marriott does have several brands that include breakfast if the courtyard is not your preference. Thank you for your comments about our service...

The staff in the area where they serve drinks and food were excellent. Upon checking out I found my car covered in water from an errant sprinkler. So for 3 days my car was being sprayed by this sprinkler. I went to staff. They told me they had no one on duty to wipe it off. Okay then they offered...

We stayed for two nights for a friend's wedding in Sonoma at a special rate slightly cheaper than booking.com The service is nice and friendly. It is with good public transport access from the airport (the Marin Airporter's stop is right across the street) and is on bus route to the nearby towns. It is next to a supermarket. The...

I had the pleasure of staying in a King Suite the weekend of Father's Day. The room was large and spacious with a balcony. Everything about the room was just right; there was a bar counter with sink, coffee pot and ample room for my stuff. The staff member was friendly at check in on Friday the 13th and offered...

Stayed in this Marriott as I had a free night to use, so can't comment on the cost. My adult sonn and I needed to stay somewhere between Santa Rosa and San Francisco for one night. This fit the bill. I'm not a fussy traveler, and had no complaints. Very comfortable beds and chairs. I was able to look at...

I think this Courtyard in Novato is a GREAT affordable option for exploring the wine country. It's right off the 101 and in 20 - 30 minutes you can be to the south ends of Sonoma and Napa valleys or up to Healdsburg and the Russian River Valley. The hotel has nice rooms and the restaurant downstairs has a great...

I stayed here two nights, room was ready upon arrival. The room was clean and bright. Washroom was clean, also pretty basic. The location worked really well for my purposes. Free parking, and having the Safeway so close was also a plus. This hotel met my expectations I would stay here again if in Novato.

Nice bed and linens. Breakfast was not included but they had a modern cafe. For the price we expected breakfast to be included. The food in the cafe was overpriced. Not too impressed with the amenities. Quick check in/out. Free parking.

The ladies at the front desk were helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean. But there was some mold next to the tub in one of them. The overal standard is ok as one should expect at this price range. The hotel shows signs of wear and tear. The Larkspur courtyard seems to be a bit better in quality and...
