We already miss the Heritage Inn... Our room was clean, comfortable and sweet, and the location on the edge of SLO is a short walk or drive to town. What sets the Inn apart from other B&Bs, though, is the lovely host, Lisa! She is as unobtrusive or chatty as you wish (though we thoroughly recommend chatting, she has had... More

We just returned from our visit to San Luis Obispo and The Heritage Inn. Having never stayed at a bed and breakfast before we were a little hesitant about privacy, noise and shared bathrooms. Boy, were we blown away. The house is amazing and we rarely saw the other guests- only at breakfast. The breakfast was amazing and we woke... More

We are not really B and B people, but this might have changed that. We were so welcomed by the woman who works at the inn, Lisa, we felt completely taken care of. The cookies were lovely, the rooms very sweet, and breakfast was delicious. All and all a great visit. Our kids loved it too.

My husband and I (and our dog) chose the Heritage Inn for another weekend away and all of our expectations were met and exceeded for the 2nd time. The gracious innkeeper and hostess gave us a warm welcome. Yes, the rooms are small but they are comfortable and clean. We stayed in the Jasmine room and preferred it to the... More

My husband and I stayed one night at Heritage Inn, SLO while visiting our son who studies there. We were welcomed so graciously and warmly by Lisa and her awesome brownies! Next morning, when I asked her if a friend of our son could also join us for breakfast, she welcomed the idea with a big smile. The brunch was... More

This is one of those reviews that create ambivalence in the writer - Heritage Inn is so great that I fear it will become very popular and I won't be able to get a reservation next time I want to stay there!! From making the reservation (Lisa, the innkeeper is the most gracious person I have ever encountered at a... More

This B & B is reasonably priced for the area. It has not been renovated for awhile, but the rooms are clean and charming. While the location might not seem ideal, it is located at the 101/1 freeways, it is still quiet and easy to find. Our room had a shared bath, but we were there on a weeknight and... More

This is the most relaxing place I've ever stayed (I travel domestically and internationally 1/3 of my time for work). It's a wonderful old manor house within easy walking distance of both downtown and Cal Poly. The fireplace in the bedroom, a cozy living room with the paper in the morning and wine in the evening, a great home cooked... More

Heritage Inn B&B is fine. It is clean. The host is friendly. Breakfast is good, though not fancy. But I would not suggest it for a romantic getaway. First, the rooms tend to be on the small side. We opted for a room with a bathroom, and the shower is very small (my husband had to duck to avoid hitting... More

We had an incredible weekend at the Heritage Inn Bed and Breakfast. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the location was very close to shops and dining, and most importantly, the innkeeper went above and beyond to show us the best hospitality we have experienced in a long time. She provided a warm and inviting environment to enjoy a lovely... More
