Everyone is helpful and very clean! Parking was ample. The bathroom was roomy as well as the shower. Body mirror was a must as I was in town for business. The closet was big enough to fit my wardrobe. Highly recommended if you're in town for a visit or on business!

Very nice hotel, and despite being very close to the freeway, our room was very quiet. Local to many good restaurants and other amenities... we headed west from there to Morro Bay and it was a good place to stop.

This hotel irritated us from arrival. We were told by the front desk that Courtyard doesn't honor Marriot Gold Rewards status (hate the Starwood merger!) , which had never been the case before. So we had to pay for wifi, breakfast $11 each ( better choices nearby) and our very small room was obviously made for one. Room was clean...

Was headed south, was what we was doing, on this California venture, things getting loose. Circling SF, Monterey, Carmel, San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, Palm Desert, Big Sur. 18 days of papered bliss before flights, things deteriorating, going souther. Front desk has no room ready.

I stopped at the Courtyard SLO on my way to Big Sur, during a family trip. The hotel is right off the 101 so it is perfectly located for a quick pit stop...
