Good food, wine, and a show- can't get any better 😜 Big thanks to the Bistro crew! Shout out to my girl Jennifer at the bar, Jordan and Jonathan for hooking it with some tacos... More

We stayed here last Friday night. Got upgraded to a suite (we are Rewards members). It was clean, spacious and very comfortable. 2 queen beds with soft feather (or feather-like) pillows. Very comfortable. Didn't use anything in the kitchenette because we had an early start to our morning. Wifi was good. the hotel is 2 exits from downtown SLO. Overall... More

Been to this hotel numerous times in the past 5 years with my family. First visit back since their beautiful remodel. Love the new contemporary look! The lobby is inviting and comfortable to lounge in. Previous visits included grumpy hotel staff, but this time, a few staff members demonstrated excellent customer service, from the lobby cafe servers to housekeeping. The... More

I stayed at this Courtyard on a road trip to LA. The property is in great shape and the staff was very nice. I was pleasantly surprised with how nice San Luis Obispo is and would recommend the Courtyard to anyone staying overnight there.

Very nice location for a Marriott Courtyard, very convenient to getting on/off the 101 that connects everything in this part of the country. The staff was very friendly, and keep the hotel quite spotless in all the public areas.

We have stayed at this Courtyard many times because we are Marriott Rewards members. It is convenient for us when we travel to visit the spouse's parents in SLO. The hotel is right next to the 101 freeway and convenient to all parts of SLO.

The hotel is nice, rooms were clean and comfortable. Beds have foam pillows and feather pillows depending on your preference. Couch has a small table that can be used to work on laptop or eat dinner. Price is good for the area and the only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because breakfast isn't included in price.
