We go to SLO about once a year and have stayed in just about every hotel in SLO. San Luis Creek Lodge is our favorite. (This time we split our stay between the Avenue Inn Downtown, and the San Luis Creek Lodge.) We stayed in the Plantation building, with a view of the creek. The room was beautifully furnished, warm... More

The San Luis Creek Lodge is conveniently located within freeway access (101Fwy) & in the heart of San Luis Obispo.The room was thoughtfully decorated, quiet, peaceful and the front office will provide, upon request, DVD (family) movies for in room viewing. The bed was very comfortable however, management would be wise to upgrade the rooms to down pillows. Mgmt. also... More

We booked this hotel as a freebie via Chase Rewards - it seemed to be the best option. After getting in around 3:30AM, we were pleasantly surprised by the warmness of the space and the very homey, comfortable room. Each building has a theme - we stayed in the first, which has an Olde English feel. The rooms were roomy... More

What can I say about this gem of a place? It is absolutely beautiful. The rooms amazing; huge, clean, and the furniture is very ornate and British: My bed had 4 posts with the most incredible detailing. As a matter of fact, my room smelled like that polish used to clean wood. It was obvious that a lot of thought... More

We stayed here on our Pacific highway journey as it was half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The hotel room was large and comfortable. When we checked in the man on reception suggested we visited the farmers market that was on that evening in town - a great idea with lots of local entertainment and lovely food. Breakfast... More

Knowing very little about SLO and working within a client budget I stumbled upon the San Luis Creek Lodge. I am so happy that I did. It was warm and inviting with exceptional staff and by far the cleanest room that I have stayed in for a very long while. The rooms are themed and I stayed in the Londonderry... More

I called the hotel directly because I was looking for a big enough room to accommodate 4 girls for a weekend getaway in October. They were very helpful in answering my questions and I decided to make a reservation and hold the room, even though I hadn't discussed the room details with the other girls in our group. I was...

Thank you for sharing your experience here on Tripadvisor. We do always take one night's room and tax as a deposit when we make reservations. This is a common practice at many hotels. We usually explain this to our guests at the time of booking. Occasionally we do make an error and unfortunately it seems we did not point this... More

We chose this hotel mainly because of the Trip Advisor reviews, booked through a popular travel site, and got what we considered a pretty good price on what we figured was one of the "cheap" rooms sans fireplace. We did not make any special requests at the time of booking. The location looked a bit sketchy, as it is on... More

My husband and I made a very last minute decision to stop in SLO on our way home back north. There are a lot of motels to choose from, but our first phone calls to the usual suspects didn't get us anything--it's a popular area in summer tourist season. One call to the San Luis Creek Lodge, however, and we... More

We booked this property during our two day layover on a rail trip up the coast from San Diego to Portland. What a gem. The room was clean and spacious. We were very impressed with the numerous art pieces displayed in the rooms and common areas. We even noted the names of artists we may want to contact. It is... More
