"Run down hotel"
The walls are too thin, and the door to our room didn't actually close. There was a gap, constantly letting in light and sound. The bed was comfortable however, and the breakfast was a good value if you do the add-on to the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"$100 Too High"

Response by Courtyard by Marriott Novato Marin/Sonoma Bob, Thank you for your feedback. We regret that you were not satisfied with the value of your stay. We hope that you consider us again in your future travels.
First time staying at a Courtyard by Marriott in a few years. It is conveniently located near highway 101 and not too far from downtown Novato. I was disappointed that there were no electric vehicle charging facilities really close by. We ended up charging using a municipal charger in downtown Novato. Otherwise, the room was comfortable with the exception […] that the air conditioner was a little loud. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel at gateway to Sonoma"
Comfortable stay close to highway 101 and a few miles from the start of Sonoma wine country. Good accommodations and in-house bistro serves a limited but decent fare. Walk across to Safeway/McDonalds or dine at Toast restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location in Marin"
This is a great location for my business which is an hour in either direction.Downside was the lack of a nearby restaurant. 'Toast' is a great place in the mall next door but that's it. Will stay here again. Great staff!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place to stay"
Furniture can use some updating, was worn out. One thing that could have been better would be another mirror in the room. The only mirror was in the bathroom and it made it hard for 2 people to get ready at the same time. Other than that, the room was clean and I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Marriott Courtyard one night stay"
We came to Sonoma to attend a wedding at one of the nearby vineyards. The Novato Courtyard Marriott offered a comfortable, clean room at a reasonable price. We didn't spend a lot of time in the room but it was welcoming to come back to after the hectic wedding.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice facility"
Great overall experience and conveniently located near wine countryGenuine Expedia guest review
Accommodating in many ways...but I switched my stay fro 2 to 1 night at least 10+ days in advance (well within my contract) but here I am over 2 weeks later still with an unammended charge for 2 nights on my card. I don't understand why some things are so efficient and some are embarrassingly not.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A very squared-away, comfortable, new-ish hotel. Great hospitality and customer service. Located near restaurants, shops and so on. We didn't use it, but there is a small bar/bistro near reception that looks very inviting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to family"
It was excellent! Arrived late in the evening and got checked right in! We were in town for a memorial service! The breakfast was excellent, complete with Starbucks Latte! It is an up to date hotel with an attractive dining area and comfortable lobby seating!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel close to shops, room not set up though"
Really handy location, Staff were helpful. Food in hotel quite good but pricey. Service For breakfast very slow. We had a good stay overall. The downside for us was that we arrived quite late with two young children. I had called ahead to say that we would be late and when we arrived was unpleasantly surprised to hear that I needed to make up the sofa […] bed in the room. I would have thought that the bed would have been made up for our arrival. We also had to ask for extra bedding ( only one thin blanket and sheets available) and there were only enough towels for 3.

"Good night's sleep"
As a daily distance commuter, I have stayed here before to attend early morning or very late evening meetings at work in San Rafael. I have also stayed here for early morning flights out of Oakland and San Francisco. The front desk staff are ready, willing, helpful, and genuinely courteous. The Marin Airporter bus is a convenient walk across the street. […] This facility offers a comfortable room environment for restful sleep and welcome peace from the madding crowd and a hectic schedule. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A Fantastic Place"
We loved it !!! Andrea was our front desk receptionist. She was super nice and friendly. Gladys serviced our room every day with perfection. We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the room. The bed was perfect----love the firmness. It gave the us the necessary back support so we were able to enjoy the 10 hours of sleep needed after the New Years […] Eve celebration. The hotel is located very close to many great restaurants and stores. The overall condition of the hotel is outstanding. We enjoyed our stay and will be coming back very soon. Thank you so very much, Marriott !!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Pretty ordinary and over-priced. Much better deal a little south at the Embassy Suites in San Rafael. Next time, that's where we'll stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice choice for Novato stay"
Price was right, location was great - no complaints here! Hotel is very close to the freeway, a Safeway, coffee, restaurants, and was a great place to stop for the night during a race weekend. We had a comfortable stay - the room wasn't over-the-top fancy, but it was nicer than merely functional. The hotel staff was uniformly friendly and parking was […] easy. I am quite pleased we decided to stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice hotel, great location, good cafe food (with Starbucks!), clean, good service. But the bed was HORRIBLY hard. We were there 2 nights and I barely slept at all. My shoulders hurt, my back ached, and my neck hurt because the pillows were paper thin. For our purposes, this stay was 100% about somewhere to sleep close to our Thanksgiving plans, […] so 2 stars is as high as I can muster. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our stay in Novato"
Overall, our stay in the courtyard by Marriott Novato was pleasant. The location was easy to find via "Garman". The room was clean and smelled fresh. We took a walk around the neighborhood after we checked in. we had coffee at "Peet's", my favorite. There were several nice restaurants within walking distance, with indoor and outdoor seating. Pleasant […] upscale establishments. No complaints! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The staff at this hotel were all VERY friendly. It is conveniently located, there is a grocery store and several delicious restaurants just a walk away.

"there's not such thing as a free breakfast"
For the price of this hotel I was expecting more. I have stayed at lesser priced hotels and they included a continental breakfast, free lotions and potions, this was did not. The room was listed as "Deluxe", it was not. It included a pull out sofa that would have made the room even smaller if we had used it. I would not stay again or recommend this […] one.
