This Courtyard was way above expectations. Large lobby with fireplaces and interesting information about the area and comfortable reading area.

We were on our way from San Francisco to a...

Nice hotel, very clean and welcoming. This was my first stay here. It seemed business friendly. It was close to Target, Costco and several restaurants. Right off the highway but still a short drive to Pismo beach. If you want to be closer to the beaches, look for another hotel.
