I'm a little dissapointed in Courtyards these days due to the lack of a free breakfast or even free lobby coffee. There is lobby coffee at this Courtyard. We got a good nights sleep in this solid property. The back side of the hotel looks over a nice meadow. Wi Fi was a bit slow and no accelerated speed is... More

Stayed at the Courtyard San Luis Obispo. First the good news: Staff was great. Friendly, helpful, accommodating. The gym was nice. Small, but nice. Room was spacious, shower had great water pressure, bed was comfy. Now the bad. The hotel is not in town. It's about 10 - 15 minutes from downtown. Main lobby was set for a morning breakfast...

We stopped here on our way from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Beautiful area, great hotel, friendly staff. Breakfast staff was very helpful in getting me something gluten free to eat. Very convenient for visiting wineries in the area.

I have stayed here before and therefore was a bit taken back when, after working out in the gym (no cups!) therefore NO water! I promptly went to the front desk and told the lady. Any other hotel would have apologized and given me a bottled water. Nope she said $3.00 is the cost of the water. I told her... More

Stayed one night with the family. Very nice and accommodating. Clean and comfortable. No free breakfast. Would stay again if in the area because of how convenient and nice it was. But, may try to find a cheaper place and one that offers a complimentary breakfast. Front desk people were very nice and friendly. Public area is comfortable and inviting.

I stayed overnight en route to the Bay Area. Clean, neat, quiet, a fine bed, spotless bathroom and a nicely renovated room in the Courtyard style, a good value at $125 plus tax on a noncancellable reservation. Up the 101 another 20 miles, in wine country, the room was $153 plus tax with identical parameters.

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.

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.
