We were on the road and using points for a free stay here, and so were pleasantly surprised to find this was a comfortable hotel with a great jacuzzi. For many years I've been either a silver or gold level Marriott Rewards member, and have never received an upgrade to a nicer room even though that's supposedly one of the... More

We try whenever we can to book a Marriott brand of hotel when travelling, as standards are usually high, but unfortunately the Courtyard at San Luis Obispo dropped the ball on a recent stay with my family. We were initially allocated a room with an awful smell but this was quickly resolved by the check in staff by giving us... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our PCH road trip. Its a nice hotel, the breakfast smelled good, but we didn't try it, left early next day. But might need to go back just to try it. Hotel is first one you'll find when coming from the south.

We had a wonderful experience here! Stacie was so patient dealing with me on the phone back and forth trying to figure out the best room for my family! I absolutely loved how friendly Stacie was and her smile! She's so personable! Upon checkin she was so friendly and was helpful with suggestions of places and things to do! We... More

This hotel meet all of our needs for 3 nights. The breakfast buffet was very good(not free). The location is excellent for hopping around the area. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Our AC went out during the heat wave and staff was excellent fixed in less than an hour. Will stay here again in my future trips. Nice bar... More

It was a breath of fresh air to walk into a Marriott property and have it be so clean and welcoming. The service was fantastic and the room was spacious and tidy. The pool area was larger than expected and the kids loved their time swimming. They also had a kid's movie playing in a conference room with popcorn and... More

We booked a king size room here on a Sunday night after a long drive down the coast. Check-in was busy but efficient. The rooms were clean and although ours smelled a bit musty, it was still a decent room with lots of bells and whistles. Our room was large with a table and pull out sofa. The bar downstairs... More

Perfect place to relax away from downtown hustle and bustle. We chose a room facing the hills and saw horses the next morning. Pool was warm. Nice that hotel featured a kids movie at 7 pm and had chocolate chip cookies to welcome us. Classy hotel will definately return. Some new construction there so may miss turn when entering. Nice...

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...
