very good place to stay, freeway access, on the main blvd, near the restaurants and shops, a good starting point for visiting hearst castle, morro bay, wine country, and the missions... it's the half-way point between San Francisco and LA

We arrived late after a long drive through rain and storm, and the hotel was a little sunny oasis. Very friendly manager with helpful information. The room was really spacious and comfortable. We especially liked the warm colors and the decoration. One minor quibble: the TV wasn't working correctly (flickering image), though we did not bother to go ask to... More

Traveling through SLO. Needed to stay one night. It was great. Small, out dated, no luxuries, exactly what we were looking for. A bed, the bed was very comfy, that's all we needed. The owner was very nice and friendly. Did I tell you it was clean? Because it sure was!! The price was sooooooo beyond perfect. Will definitely stay... More

Nice, simple place. Unfortunately there was a heat wave during the month of visit and the room had no air conditioning nor even a fan. Other than that it was just fine, really close to many places downtown, on a walking distance.

The owners are a very friendly family. Excellent value & location. Had a nice corner room that was quiet. Everything was clean. Would definitely stay here again if we come through SLO. Very convenient downtown location.

This was a very nice cosy place to stay. The room 5 was very clean and had it's own little parking space right next to the door. My girlfriend and I stayed the night before thanksgiving for less than $60 on a last minute reservation. The service wasn't the best but they did get the job done. It's not too... More

Los Padres was quiet, within walking distance of the heart of SLO and right next door to a coffee shop. With its retro design and VERY clean rooms, it was well worth the price. We're planning to use it regularly as a stop between the Bay area and L.A.

My first stay here and I will stay here again. You can't beat location and price if you want to be downtown. Is it the most updated and in perfect condition? No. But there is a charm to the place, especially the exterior. It was clean, it had the basic amenities (even micro, fridge, ironing board, hair dryer, etc) and... More
