This Courtyard is very conveniently located near downtown and Cal Poly (4 miles from college) and its price is much more reasonable than the Madonna Inn! We had two large and comfortable beds, free wifi and all the amenities of a clean nice hotel. The hotel provides maps and directions to go to Cal Poly and they seem very organized....

Arrived after dinner - had one drink in bar - went to bed. Woke up to goats on the hill behind the hotel. Was fine. Nothing glamorous, but convenient and priced right. Not free breakfast. Had plenty of items in the little store to get something to eat before hitting the road.
