Although this little gem is listed as a bed-and-breakfast it is not. Our stay at the Granada Hotel was wonderful. The room was extremely comfortable. Suite #12 had beautiful hard wood floors, exposed brick, mini balcony, a huge shower and was tastefully decorated. The service both in the hotel and in the Bistro was awesome. Private parking, great downtown location..... More

Stayed at the Granada for the first time this past week. I can not say enough about this place, it is completely unique and has got to be one of the leading hotel I've stayed at. You are within walking distance of downtown, service was amazing. I dined at several nice restaurant over my stay and have to say, hands... More

I stayed at the Granada Hotel last December and was completely smitten from the moment I arrived. A beautiful yet discreet destination, it's easy to miss even if you're looking for it. Everyone on staff was friendly and professional, an expert team. My room was large and so tastefully decorated that I kept forgetting I was in a hotel and... More

Myself, a friend a our two teenage daughters stayed here while attending a Cal Poly campus tour. We loved the atmosphere and location right in the middle of town. The rooms are on the smaller side, and they only have one queen bed. We stayed in room 3 and 4 which had an adjoining balcony with a beautiful fireplace, perfect... More

After following all the articles and reviews about the Granada since it opened, and wanting to stay there since then, I finally got the opportunity 2 weeks ago. Everything about this place is about relaxed beauty, comfort, and meeting your needs. The decor is eclectic and colorful without being loud. I'd like them to come decorate my house because we...

We took the train from Los Angeles to San Luis Obispo and walked 10 minutes to the Granada Hotel. From the moment we made our reservations to checking us out, the staff was helpful and there didn't appear to be anything the staff wouldn't do for us. The rooms are wonderful. Even the least expensive rooms are comfortable, accessories perfect... More

This charming hotel in downtown SLO offers beautiful, artfully decorated and comfortable rooms at a good value. We stayed in room 17, which is ADA-compliant, so is larger than the other rooms in the inn, we were told. I managed to sneak a glimpse at a few other rooms and I can confirm that they are small. So keep in... More

PS this is HOTEL not a B & B and is misclassified by Trip Advisor! My wife and I have traveled throughout the world and have also been fortunate to have traveled throughout California and in particular in wine country and absolutely love this place. This is a beautiful hip and amazing downtown hotel in heart of SLO (only one... More

Traveling down the coast from SF to LA we diverted a few miles inland to SFO for the first time. We choose the Granada (based on location and online reviews) and couldn't have made a better choice. We arrived in the morning on a weekend without a reservation and Lisa ( I believe that was her name, she's from MN)... More

If you like the charm of a boutique hotel- you'll want to check this one out. The photos and description on line - accurately depict the property. You can park your car and walk to fabulous restaurants and shops. Our room was cozy, clean, and comfortable. Though the room is compact, the space is used well. I loved it!
