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

The room was quite dated, and noisy. The wall shook every time someone's door closed within a hundred feet of your room. The $50 price tag is in line with what you get....and nothing more. The biggest upside to this place is there are several decent restaurants within a two minute walk. There are other, nicer options in that immediate... More

We were greeted late evening by a very pleasant woman who showed us a cozy room and offered a good price. Nice to be taken care of! Enjoyed the small feel of the place and the quiet neighbors. Matched the town of San Luis Obispo. Could be a bit touched up inside the rooms for perfectionists, but totally adequate and... More

Really good place for stayovers! Nice experience. Would recommend to others. Rooms are clean and hygienic. Service was good. The kid working on the desk showed me the way to downtown and recommended some good restaurants. Talked to him for a while and he was really friendly. Nice experience! Will be back.

They have a teenager kid as manager and this rude guy never know how to behave and talk with customers. I stayed there twice because everywhere else it was full. What they mentioned on website about their office hours is a lie. I checked in at 10.30 pm when office was closed and after a few minutes of bell hitting... More

Small motel undergoing exterior renovation in December 2011. Rooms are large with open beam high ceilings. Our room had a new shower with lots of hot water. 19 inch basic TV. Wall heater worked well. Much better than one of the largest chain motels we stayed in the night before in Carpenteria. Room was clean. Manager friendly. Good location close... More

Room 20 was filthy! The furniture had black fingerprints and goop all over it. Half the lights were broken or missing bulbs. It was awful! However, the couple we were staying with stayed in room 12 and it was definitely more acceptable and cleaner. I won't stay in this hotel again.
