Courtyard by Marriott San Luis Obispo

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The overall stay was good. One bad experience with rude staff. Hotel manager resolved issue.

Great location. Actually a step up from a traditional courtyard. Ps courtyards are my standard home away from home.

We stayed here on a holiday weekend and paid well over $300 for on night. We ended up with a handicap room, which is fine except the bathroom was awful. I felt like I was showering at the gym!

The staff was very nice and helpful, the room was clean... I would have liked it more if room service was available all night especially on weekends.

This was the 2nd time we stayed in this hotel. Very convenient location, close to freeway, minutes of walk to beach, and minutes of drive to Santa Barbara, made it a nice stop on our central coast road trip.

Very friendly staff. We have a toddler who loves his milk. So the 24-hour minimart with cartons of milk and yogurts are great for keeping the kid happy. And they are not outrageously expensive either. $1 for the 12-oz milk. Love the King size bed and clean bedding. My husband never really care the bathroom, but he made a point to show me how nice the bathroom was set up, which I agreed. The only complaint: I wish there were tea bags along with the coffee in the room. I love my tea.

Excellent service, friendly staff, nice room, good food. I strongly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in the San Luis Obispo area.

Room was great but no HGTV. TV kept picsulating. goo restaurants close by.

convenient location for shopping locally as well as close enough for sightseeing the city, morro bay, and pismo beach.

This is a nice hotel. However, I guess "Courtyard" connotes the cheaper version. For the price of this hotel, I still expect a robe, better bed and larger room. An breakfast that is included in the price would be nice. That said, the staff were very nice and everything was clean. Ask for a room at the far end and you get a view. The food at the hotel was pretty good.

The staff was very polite and helpful. We had breakfast and found it very nice with a good selection of fresh fruit, eggs cooked to order and a variety of cereals and breads.

The location of this hotel is good if you are spending time in the Pismo Beach, San Luis Obispo, and Morro Bay area. It was about a 5 min. drive away from downtown San Luis Obispo. Although this hotel has a nice lobby and outside appearance, we found the room to be very average, and were disappointed that it smelled of damp. For the price paid (+$200) we could have stayed oceanfront in Pismo Beach. Cleanliness, breakfast buffet, and overall room size were all average.

New hotel with nice, clean rooms located right next to Hwy 101. Impressed with service provided by both the front desk and the dining room. Would definitely stay there again.

On a family visit: This is by far, was the BEST hotel in the area for an extended or even just an overnight stay! Comfortable and clean rooms, great ammenities including convenient dining at the hotel! And easy check-in and check-out. By far, a superior alternative to sleeping on the floor at a relative's home! (I'm getting too old for that!) They made a great visit even BETTER! This is my favorite hotel to stay in for every trip to the area! Thanks for the convenient links and registration! klg
