No hot water. Had to take 1minute shower.

After minutes the water was not hot in the morning. Had to shower in the cold water. Hotel staff only said did I call in. Its 7 am and I had to check out and leave, it's obvious that the staff didn't care. Otherwise the room is clean, but the bathroom is old.

Great hotel...not so great area.

Accommodations were excellent. Hotel a littleconfusing to get to because of the one-way streets that seemed 2 run in a circle. Convenient shopping right across the street!

Nice hotel close to everything

Pros: great access to freeways, shops and restaurants.
Cons: Better trained staff
Location: Very close to San Francisco and easy access to Napa. Centrally located.
Enjoyed this hotel a lot. Great room with view for the price. Don't let the exterior fool you. Its nicely done inside and the room was well furnished and modern. Front desk staff is a little slow. I had to ask for room refrigerator 3 times and when I came back to my room after 8 hours it still wasn't there. Other than that, I would definitely come back!!

Good location, good staff. Practical.

Pros: Clean, nice, good people, safe feeling.
Cons: Refrigerators have to be requested, so if you have medications or need for coolers, you have to request them. No big deal, though. That's it.
Location: located across the street from the open air Bay Street Mall, which is cute, has restaurants and the usual mall stores.
I always know that a Courtyard will be a nice place to stay. This one is located across the street from the open air Bay Street Mall, which is cute, has restaurants and the usual mall stores. It's nice if you're into that sort of thing. Hotel staff is really good. Facilities are clean. A nice place to base your operations from.

Overall excellent - would probably stay there again

Pros: Quiet
We stayed here prior to taking Amtrak in the morning. It was not walking distance to the station but the Hertz dropoff in the hotel was quick and easy and a cab to the station with help from the front desk cost $10 and 5 minutes. Only complaint was that the bed, which initially felt blissfully soft, turned out to be so soft that sleeping with two of us created a black hole in the middle that tried to suck you in and left me with horrible back pain in the morning. Next time I'll make the kid sleep with me instead of the wife. Everything else was very nice.
