Stayed here with a group where we had the rooms in the Londonderry Building. The rooms were really nice and comfortable. The beds were excellent. The breakfast the next day was really good with freshly cooked meals prepared for us. It is a bit out of town but took about 15 minutes or so to walk in Highly recommend

We enjoyed our stay here. The accommodations were well kept, clean, and very comfortable. In addition the room was spacious (compared to other hotels/motels) and quiet. The front and breakfast staff were very helpful. Nice breakfast with choice of scrambled eggs or waffles. Coffee (or tea) is available in your room. We would come back again.

We've stayed in a number of U.S. hotels over recent weeks and the San Luis Creek Lodge is, without doubt and by some considerable distance, the best. From the moment we checked in it was obvious that this is a hotel run by people who really know their business. The rooms are spacious, elegant and very well furnished including the... More

Although I went to graduate school in San Luis, I'd never stayed in a hotel there. This place was perfect - walking distance to downtown, but not one of the hundred run-of-the-mill motels. The room was well-appointed, and the shower fantastic! My only little complaint is that the bedding should have been nicer for a hotel of of this calibre.... More

We enjoyed our room at the San Luis Creek Lodge - beautifully furnished with a very comfy bed and spacious bath with a window. One complaint was the steep, narrow driveway with no turn around at the bottom - we had to back out of it in the dark with parked cars on one side and a stone wall on... More

I was hesitant at first to book because I am a big pool person and so is my family, however, we only had one night and would be getting in from a long drive down Hwy 1. When we arrived, the moment you pull into the parking lot, you get a small quaint feeling, which was nice. The gentleman who... More

I found this Inn on TripAdvisor. I'm a travel agent and our family, as a result, is very picky about our lodging. The San Luis Creek Lodge was FABULOUS!!!!! The room was appointed with great décor, taste and comfort. The showers are amazing! We did not want to leave and were regretting only having one night at this location. The... More

My fiancé & I stayed Windsor Suite which was very spacious! Everything was great starting with the check in. We arrived before check in time but the lovely front desk girl Alexis informed us that our room was ready and that we could check in early. We are local and wanted to get out of town but still stay close... More

I'm not big on writing reviews online, but I believe on giving credit when credit is due. I stayed in the Plantation room of this little b&b. The room was spacious and very cleanly. Also the staff was very helpful and attentive as she was serving us breakfast and helping guests in the front. The breakfast lady was very nice... More

Room key did not work. Should I have called the fire dept. No employee on site. New foreign ownership. What would happen if this issue occurred at 1:00 am? Apparently the place was taken over by Pacific rimmers, YONG OH,. The previous couple that built and owned the place for the previous 10 years were excellent and professional. Someone is... More

Thank you for expressing your feelings on Tripadvisor. I would hate to think that you were so upset and I was unaware of it. As you know I did call the guest and discuss this whole situation with her and assure her that we will do everything possible to avoid a situation like this happening again, including a lock service....
