Hotel recently upgraded (not old facility). Room very clean and large. Bathroom is OK. The breakfast ( you pay) is very good. Bar is OK. This is high season (July) and most placed on Central Coast very pricey. The Courtyard Inn is very reasonably priced and is usually fully occupied. Nice pool, kid friendly. Location is easy on/off US 101... More

Wow, I was surprised how nice this was for a courtyard type hotel. The hotel is fully renovated, very modern and clean. The suite we stayed in was large and completely renovated in modern grey and blue tones. This was our half way point on our trip from Southern California to San Francisco and it is in a great location,... More

We enjoyed our stay at this very nice Courtyard. The location was great and it was near shopping and restaurants. The rooms were soundproof and there was a nice and friendly staff who was professional and went out of their way to be friendly to us.

Great brand new Courtyard in San Luis Obispo. Extremely clean and wonderful. Can walk on carpets in your bare feet! Nice lobby and small but nice exercise room. Very nice outdoor pool. Enjoyed our visit very much! Would definitely stay here again. Very close to Route 101 and nearby shopping mall.

Very impressed from how easy and friendly check in was to absolutely a spotless room an property. This is far from a typical Courtyard...the pool area is very nice and staff truly goes above and beyond. This is our new place to stay in San Luis. We stayed in the two queen, two bedroom suite and it was perfect!!
