Worst hotel ever! It was dirty ,gross, old, and way over priced. We were charged one price online and other when we got there, $118 for that room never again. Also walls are paper thin. The outside mite look nice, but it's terrible inside . Only good thing about the place was the ac.

Clean, however the walls are thin can hear people talking in the next room easily. Overall great location and close to everything! Only 15 minutes from Pismo and other beaches. Much cheaper than any other hotel around for what you get great price.

Love the high ceiling room with fridge and microwave...perfect after a visit to the Saturday farmer's market! The motel looks small and old from outside but the room inside is maintained well. The price is reasonable in this area.

This small, inexpensive, clean motel was just the thing for our one night stay before boarding the train. You won't find a better bargain in the area, but don't expect too much in the way of extras. Our large room had a frig, microwave, table and two chairs, plus internet access. The street is noisy, but not so during sleeping... More

On the occasion of events held in town SLO, like any other city, tends to become rather expensive. I spent one night at the Villa Motel during the annual Cal Poly open house in April 2015 since it was the only place still offering rooms for a decent price. I hadn't any reservation and all the motels previously contacted requested... More

I wasn't expecting much from the place other than a place to lay my head for a couple of nights. The location is great and the price was right. Check-in was fast and simple. Beds were comfortable enough and the free wi-fi was strong and reliable. Within walking distance to downtown SLO.

Stayed a night here when visiting San Luis Obispo. No complaints, a very good experience! The hotel is very well located for a visit to the town and we walked from there to the Thursday night market and back and it was a great way to visit the town. The owner was very friendly, welcoming, and attentive and was a... More

Got a $50 room on price line. A bit dated but very clean and the trolley stop is very close. Checkin was a breeze and the owner very nice. A good micro brewery is a block up. Perfect for my wife and I to enjoy downtown so for a night.

We arrived around 1am and I felt so bad, we had to wake up the assistant at the front desk. He was very kind a d courteous, and sleepy. The room itself wasn't the most esthetic, but very clean and functional. I'm not that picky, so maybe that's why it did t read bother me. There just some cracks on... More
