This property is operated for the convenience of its staff, not its guests. If you have to stay in SLO and everywhere else is booked, coming here will be more comfortable than pitching a tent. Just don't expect much. And bring your own beer. I have had customer service issues at Marriott hotels before, but they have been very few... More

I stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott, San Luis Obispo for Monday night, 4/6 and accidentally left a cosmetic on the bathroom counter when I departed on Tuesday. I called Tuesday night to let them know and to ask them to leave it at the front desk so I could pick it up on my return trip. They transferred me... More

We are a family of four that recently spent two nights at the Courtyard. Upon check in, we were promptly greeted and given our room. We had Room 301 which was away from the elevators, but near the stairs. But was very quiet. Room was nice and was clean, as was the bathroom. It was spacious and clean as well.... More

Spent three nights here. The good things: lots of free, well lighted, secure parking; friendly staff at the front desk; clean lobby and grounds; working and hot Jacuzzi; nice TV; spacious restroom and tub/shower; microwave, refrigerator, and 4-cup coffee maker in the room. This is also a good central location for wine tasting in Paso Robles, traveling around the Coast,... More

We had a wonderful stay at this elegant Courtyard Marriott. The very friendly staff, clean rooms, beautiful lobby and the beauty of SLO all contributed to a great time! SLO offers so much to do and this hotel is minutes away by car.

Hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. Lobby was nice with plenty of seating. Very comfortable bed!!! Easy access on and off the freeway. Newer shopping center nearby. A little out of the way, but had pretty views of the mountains.

Booked on Priceline, staff was very nice and helpful, and the room was super clean and big. I can't ever give Courtyard's a 5 star rating because there is no free breakfast. A small continental free breakfast that their competitors in the hotel class offer would be a nice addition. The hotel is a $7 uber each way from the... More

Hello Jenny, I appologize for not including breakfast in your rate, but it has become a standard policy by Marriott that breakfast will not be included at Courtyards. Most Courtyards have been converted to "The Bistro Cafe" and free breakfast is not available. We will be going through our renovation at the end of this year, but we still need... More
