The long and short of this place is that it's okay. At over $100/night with taxes, it's definitely expensive for what it offers. But this is also SLO, where prices are high. All the basics were there: A/C, clean, hot water, decent bed, fridge, hangers, etc. That said... This place needs A LOT of physical improvements and renovation. The place... More

If you're not too complicated like me this "motel" will be enough for a night but it's cartainly not good. It's quite disgusting, the floor is more than dirty (watch the picture below), the shower is certainly not the place where you want to wash yourself, the walls are in a bad state, the floor too and I'll pass on...

Read the terrible reviews and had to check it out myself. Just driving through the property tells me the ghastly comments are accurate. Good God this place is a dump. The few people we saw outside were trashy, and as for the grounds, yuck! I would never want to see the inside of a room. Based on the comments and... More

This hotel was appalling. The room was not clean, no coffee maker, glass, hairdryer or iron. Way overpriced and the bathroom, oh my god, it was disgusting, the full extent of which was revealed in daylight. Other reviews (just seen by us) cover this hotel well. It should be reported to authorities.

The Homestead was a last resort on a weekend with multiple wine festivals in the area. Claiming to be booked out, rooms clocked in between 90$ and 150$ (the latter for the 3-bed room). Being directly situated next to Highway 101 was indeed the first warning - even though this particular corner is home to a patch of at least... More

Please do not stay at the Homestead. My daughter and I spent a night there Oct.13, 2012. It was parents week-end at the University and rooms were scarce. The furniture had ground in dirt and was sticky. There were huge rust colored stains on the side of the box springs (don't know what it was.) Just everything was dirty..walls, floors,... More

I had been married about 3-4 months and thought I'd carry my bachelor-like habits of hotel finding on to married life. We called around and found the "best deal" (read cheapest) for a hotel for the weekend. Homestead gave us some deal like $50/night. That should have been a sign! Nevertheless, we said great, we'll take it. Finding the place... More

Dirtiest hotel I stayed in California. The people who owed that place don’t care; cleaning couple don’t speak English/ or pretend that don’t understand, management is lazy. The place is disgrace.
