We only had time to stay one night so didn't spend much time around the hotel, but it was clean, comfortable, and everything we expected out of a courtyard. The desk staff was friendly and accommodating. Nice location.

Very nice hotel right off the highway. Staff couldn't have been any nicer or helpful. Plenty of parking. Quick ride up to Paso Robles,but there are many vineyards even closer. No time for the pool but it looked nice. Try to get a room with a view of the hills.

Arrived on Thursday for a short stay with the wife and kid. The location is freeway accessible and very clean. Courtyards are my default property on road trips or quick trips. This location did not disappoint. Check-in was fast and we promptly made our way to a sizeable 1 bedroom/2 room suite with 2 queens. I was chastised for not...

I recently stayed here for a weekend with a group of friends. We were visiting another friend who lives in SLO, as well as supporting a friend who was running the SLO half marathon. At the end of the day, most Courtyard hotels are pretty similar. The SLO Courtyard has all the amenities you'd expect, including a Starbucks in the...

Had a nice stay while visiting Cal Poly. Comfortable beds, nice amenities. Showers took a little while to get hot. Breakfast not being served on a Saturday before 8. Not sure what was up with that. Off highway.

Checked in today in the afternoon. The lobby bar was supposed to open at 5:00 but as I sat at the bar at 4:30, Jennifer, the bartender said she would open early for me. We had a great conversation, but she made me a Whisky Buck, which was one of the bests cocktails I have ever had. As more people...

This is a great location right as you enter Paso Robles. It is new and the service was great. Overall a great choice. They gave us good advice on things to do and places to eat in Paso Robles. The beds were very comfortable.

Jennifer single handedly made my time at Courtyard one to remember. Not only was she helpful in getting to know the area and untapped secrets of San Luis, but her friendly outgoing attitude and exciting conversation made me excited to return! Plus her server skills are unparalleled. A++

After having been away a while from this property, I thought management would have had a chance to work through the rough patches in managing the check in process with excellence. Untrue. I have stayed at many Courtyard hotels here and outside the USA, but only here do they ignore the simplest request from Marriott's best customers (Platinum). Even after...
