Conveniently located quietly close to the 101 turn-off. We asked for a got a room with a mountain view which was very quiet and had a lovely view of the hills in the morning. The pool, spa and fitness centre were wholly adequate for our needs and the restaurant served a very acceptable dinner. Very polite and helpful staff made... More

A convenient place to stay near Highway 101 on our way to Los Angeles. We stayed on the third floor in a two room suite, for some reason we were upgraded to this room. Facility had the usual great Marriott mattress/bedding so we enjoyed a good restful night, clean, quiet and comfortable. Hotel is near the San Luis Obispo mission... More

This is right off 101. Rooms are big; the hotel is clean. And there were yummy chocolate chip cookies available upon check in. While this isn't within walking distance to restaurants for dinner, there is a nice cafe with food and spirits available off the lobby. Our third floor room had a lovely view of the pool area and the... More

Just off the Route 101, this Courtyard is one of the best that I have stayed in. The rooms are large, the staff friendly and helpful, and the public area comfortable. The evening menu is limited but was served promptly and was fine, as was breakfast. My only real criticism was the air conditioner was far too loud. I enjoyed... More

I stayed for a business meeting and spent quite some time in and around the hotel. The room was very large, clean and had a good bathroom. Breakfast each day was excellent, especially the egg station. If I had any comment, it would be that the omelettes had too much fillings! I ate one evening at the hotel and the... More

This place is not fancy but the rooms are a very large size. There is a generous free breakfast, free wifi, decent cable, happy hour, a pool I've never swam in and its close to many of the great downtown SLO restaurants. The staff is always friendly and the parking is plentiful. I'd say I wished they upgraded their room... More

Nice little property right off the 101 just south of SLO. I mean, four minutes south! Very convenient location away from the hustle and bustle of down town. Not a lot do do around the hotel...but a quick trip in the car and you have access to all you want. The hotel is a typical Courtyard...nothing fancy but clean and... More

Fairly close to the airport and a quick hop on the highway to visit the area. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was quiet, comfortable and clean. There is a restaurant in the lobby, a bar that seemed to maintain limited hours, a mini "store" for snacks/drinks, a work area and comfortable lounge. There is also a very nice... More
