The location is very good. There was construction on the bridge crossing over the 101 which caused a delay in exiting the freeway. The room was clean. The beds and shower were fine. Nothing fancy but a good choice for a hotel room. The staff was excellent. The breakfast was very good.

We stayed here and visited my son at Cal Poly. I must say the staff is the best I have ever dealt with and the complementary breakfast was outstanding. The hotel is located in a very convenient spot. The room was very clean and the carpets in the hotel were fresh. We used the hot tub and pool. Overall you... More

Two night stay, the familiar Hampton Inn room layout, but everything's brand new. Nice location, surprisingly good free breakfast (pre-made western omelets, kept warm, and pretty tasty.) It's SLO so the views are lovely countryside. Only drawback I can think of, few restaurants within easy walking distance. I'd stay again.

Great place to stay away from home. Very nice spacious rooms with updated furniture. Lobby is very welcoming with modern furniture. Hot continental breakfast served free with many options. Centrally located hotel close to shopping areas.

I'm from Los Angeles, so the hotel is not as glitzy as a Beverly Hills hangout but for San Luis Obispo it is nicely decorated and very functional. The mini market in the lobby, and the complimentary breakfast are well thought out adding a nice touch. The business center and the fitness center was the perfect size and well cared... More

This Hampton Inn is in an awkward location partly due to construction. They should provide helpful signage to assist guests to locate their entrance. The price for a hotel at the west end of town was a bit out of line.

As with most Hampton Inns, this property did not disappoint. Conveniently located next to the 101 freeway, it offers clean and quiet accommodations, with a great breakfast buffet included. It's also close to nearby shopping (there's a Target and Whole Foods nearby), and it's just a few minutes drive from downtown San Luis Obispo.

Good hotel for business travel. Free wifi, lots of electrical outlets, fridge, King rooms have lots of space to work, business center has printers. Lobby has lots of tables and chairs and areas to work or just relax. Only one time have I had any problems with my stay and the manager was quick to take care of them.

With more followup and supervision this Hotel Aces the Industry in its Class. Front Desk Staff is rather spread out. It may be helpful to have a "no-smoking" sign within a certain distance of the main entrance to the hotel.
