We have been here numerous times since they opened. Remodeling is underway but it did not disturb our stay. Request a room away from the front and facing the pool and hills. We enjoyed a recently renovated small room without any disturbance. Refrigerator and microwave are a nice touch too. As breakfast is extra, we skipped it for the Blue... More

The beds were the best !! The rooms were a bit small but it wasn't terrible. We had a lovely view of the pool and hillside. Overall we had a great time and would recommend Staying here. The morning breakfast was extra but delicious. They made omelettes to order ... Ask for the salsa too. It's homemade !

I travel to Marriotts all over N.A. and Europe but the heating/cooling system drove me mad. I barely slept. I actually got out of bed and called down to the desk to ask for ear plugs and I have never done that before. The staff rushed up and gave me earplugs and offered to change rooms so that was great...

Sadly, they are considering renovating to the Bistro model but I was glad it was still the traditional Courtyard including free coffee in the morning. Room was comfy. Needed to use laundry service which was a bit of a joke. One washer, one dryer. and it was lined up all night. Luckily being east coaster I was up very early... More

Despite the construction at the hotel and the freeway off ramp (in January 2016), this hotel is one that I have stayed at multiple times. We were upgrades to a newly refurbished suite, and I, along with the kids loved it. Located close to the freeway and shopping, this location is good for families and business travelers. It would be... More

Nice facility, great staff. I was traveling on business, so everything was just fine. The location is easy to reach off 101, but not really walking distance to anything. If you're looking for a romantic getaway or to party downtown, this is not your ideal spot. If you want a safe, comfortable place to sleep with nice rooms and good... More

Courtyards are great because you know what you are going to get. This hotel is central to the San Luis Obispo city center and yet still close to the bay if you get alittle time for yorself. Grab a drink in the lobby to let the stress of the day go.

We made a day-of reservation due to a huge freeway problem, so paid close to $180 for the room. Hotel has the basic necessities, though room is poorly lit and looks a little shabby. Clean.
