Robert, in the home department, was extremely friendly and helpful. He assisted us at 3 different times, once guiding us to the elevator without us even asking for help, another time he saw me searching for a dumpster, and he took my garbage, and graciously offered to take care of it for me, and the third time he came to...

My son graduated fro Cal Poly San Luis Obispo a couple of weekends ago. In January I tried to make a reservation and every hotel for miles was booked. At the last minute a room opened up here and I am so gald it did. The hotel and room were very nice. What was best was the friendliness of the... More

We checked into our suite and noticed a heavy body odor in the room. Housekeeping came up and sprayed the carpet with something- it masked the odor temporarily. I reported it to the front desk- since they didn't have any other suites available, they gave us 2 queen rooms for the same price as the suite. After a long drive... More

This hotel is at a perfect location on the edge of San Luis Obispo just five minutes from Pismo Beach and Avila Beach. Like that there is a decent hotel in this area. Significant improvements are being made which will only enhance the experience. The price is right. The rooms are clean and comfortable. For family visits to the coast... More

We love staying at the courtyard Marriott, the staff are really friendly and very welcoming every time we arrive and throughout our stay. Tara was exceptional and attended our every need. Would recommend this hotel to any of my friends. Kirk and Julie were also outstanding throughout our stay.

We stayed in a large room with two queens and there was a large bathroom too. This was a pleasant surprise because we had recently stayed at the Marriott in Monterey and it was a small room with two doubles. The outdoor pool and hot tub at the Courtyard were well maintained. No free breakfast. But no parking fee either.... More

We drove up from Los Angeles to attend the oyster festival and asked for an early check in before we attend the fest. No problem, the front desk receptionist was extremely pleasant and gave us room keys so we could drop off our luggage and go. Warm chocolate chip cookies had just arrived at the desk and were delicious. Our... More

We thought the staff, both at the front desk and in the dining room, were exceptional. Very cordial and professional. As an example, we were having breakfast one morning and noticed a plastic sack behind a bush in the garden area outside of the window we were seated by. One of the servers (a young woman from San Antonio) immediately... More

This location is useful, albeit a bit noisy due to it's close proximity to the freeway. I found the staff not to be very helpful at all. Definitely not the norm for Marriott standards. There is a beautiful field of horses out back. If you can get a room facing that way, you'll have a better view.

We drove from San Fransisco to LA and San Luis is right bang in the middle of both cities. There wasn't a great selection of hotels in the area. We arrived at around 9pm so kitchen was closed which was a little disappointing. Very happy with the size of the rooms and how quiet the hotel is. Breakfast was ok... More
