This property is a cut above most Courtyard properties. Efficient and knowledgeable staff, quiet location, and exceptionally clean rooms. For me personally the best feature is a box for recycling right next to the trash can in the room. This is such a simple thing for a hotel to do and yet only a very small percentage of the hotels...

We stayed 4 days in April this year. This is a more upscale hotel with very nice indoor decor and outside landscaping. Pool area and spa very nice. Restaurant attached is very convenient although morning breakfast will cost you, not complimentary. Staff was friendly and proffessional. Rooms were nice but not overly lavish. Our first night was a little unnerving... More

I've stayed in a good deal of Courtyards and this one was pretty classy. My room was assigned as per my specifications so I was happy.

Property is fairly cozy, but we had a great stay for the 4th of July weekend. We had kids in our party, and they definitely enjoyed the pool. It is not very close to major attractions of downtown SLO, but everything is 5-10 minutes away. Our room was a standard king room, and it was very comfy and updated. TV... More

I arrived by car and there is ample free parking around the hotel. My room on the 3rd floor was sufficiently comfortable with sofa and view over the pool. The room was quiet and the bed comfortable.

I pre-paid using Priceline but the hotel charged the full stay on the credit card I gave them for incidentals. Once I realized this, I called and spoke with the front desk manager who told me she would issue a credit to my account, but a month later, my credit card bill is due and still no credit issued. So... More
