My mom and I had the pleasure of of staying here for two nights in late August, 2014. From the moment I checked in, to the moment I checked out, the experience was flawless. We stayed in the Craftsman lodge, and it was perfect. Big room, huge tv, wonderful bathroom microwave, fridge. The room was spotless, and the attention to... More

A real (positive) surprise in SLO. The access / location is good just a bit out of town. The rooms are huge and a bit European medieval in style which is fun. Large bathroom with two sinks cuts down on the morning conflict on a long trip. The staff were very helpful and the freshly prepared breakfast was good.

What a GREAT place! We booked this place on a whim after the place we were staying in Big Sur was a dump. I'm so glad they had availability. We stayed in the Chestnut room and it was perfect. Nice, spacious room with a big, comfortable bed. Big bathroom with two sinks. Everything is updated and very clean. The breakfast... More

The room was nicely furnished, clean and in good condition. The staff were courteous, the breakfast met expectations and the grounds were well maintained. The only thing keeping the this stay from the fifth star was that the air conditioner made an annoying noise for 50 minutes when it was initially started. Then about 10 minutes the next day.

My boss recommended I stay here because she enjoyed it too. Clean and comfortable with very helpful staff. Some nice touches that you don't get in the big hotels like great satellite channels. Also available are DVDs and popcorn. Some home baked cookies and water seem to be always available. And to top it all a slightly later check out... More

We just spent 3 nights here (we were only going to stay 2 but added 1 because we were enjoying our stay) and loved it. The staff was very friendly and eager to assist. Breakfast is served in a quaint dining room from 7:30am-9:30am. Yesterday, we asked for a local recommendation for a local breakfast place as we were headed... More

We stayed here because of the reviews we'd seen and the price online. Our room, while not large, was VERY comfortable. Clearly they've updated the bathrooms and floors. Everything was very clean. Also, they offer a lovely breakfast including scrambled eggs and waffles to order, muffins, scones, oatmeal, sausages, and breakfast potatoes. They also have Starbuck's coffee. The staff was... More

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

Thank you so much for your comments here on Tripadvisor. I am happy you were able to enjoy the walk to the town center. There are lots of interesting things to see on the way that you may otherwise miss. We appreciate being a little out of the activity of the town center so that we are able to provide... More

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
