Easy off freeway, clean, great beds/pillows Rough towels though, and big price fluctuations depending on CalPoly events Spacious lobby area, cafe area, yummy frittata Stayed here many times, always good service at front desk and on phone

Management response:

Dear SJKKH, I am happy to hear you enjoyed your most recent stay at the Courtyard by Marriott San Luis Obispo experience. The frittata is my favorite Bistro dish and I'm excited for you to try some of our new seasonal items on your next visit. We look forward to seeing you again. Happy travels, Stacey M General Manager

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++

She is a wonderful asset to this hotel and will be excited to hear that you want to return because of your time spent with her. We look forward to seeing you again soon! Warmest regards, Stacey M

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...

This is a nicely redone courtyard with the updated Starbucks type lobby. Room has a large bathroom, although we felt overall the hotel Was dark, room and lobby and they don't have USB ports like many rooms have now. Convenient off freeway but not near university. It's a few exits south of cal poly and down town so you must...
