What a delightful property. On a recommendation from a friend, we decided to stay one night in San Luis Obispo on our 2-day drive up the coast to San Francisco from LA. So, of course, I immediately went to Trip Advisor and San Luis Creek Lodge stood out from all the rest. Best part, it lived up to our expectations... More

We had a lovely room, two very comfortable queen size beds, and a fireplace. The breakfast was substantial, although the eating space was quite small. I would treat myself here again when I revisit San Luis Obispo.

Great option from all the cookie-cutter motel/hotels. Rooms were spacious and nicely furnished, excellent bathrooms with Philosophy products. Rate includes breakfast, and they also have DVDs, popcorn, bottled water in the lobby for no charge.

We stayed here for a night. The room was nice, although we were in the 3rd floor with no elevators and we had a huge suitcase. The breakfast was ok. The dining area was crowded and folks were standing up to wait for a seat. Service was slow and the food that was out were running out and no one... More

We found this hotel on TripAdvisor and were so glad we did. We had a room in the Plantation building (each building has a different name/theme) and found it to be so comfortable we hated to leave after staying for 3 nights. Between the fireplace, comfortable four-poster bed, varied breakfast and good location we could have been comfortable there for... More

Beautifully designed hotel reminiscent of old English style cottages. VERY nice and helpful front desk! I needed to charge my GPS thing and the car charger I had wasn't working right, so I asked if they had an adaptor and they had one! Was able to charge up. The room is very nice and reminded me of a bed and... More

Stayed here en route to San Francisco. Comfortable motel/hotel adjacent to many franchised motels placed side-by-side along Monterey St. in San Luis Obispo just off US 101. The rooms are spacious with ours having a rocking chair and upholstered chair with a huge flat screen TV. The beds were comfortable, room very quiet, free parking, copious breakfast and friendly, caring... More

Just returned from a very short visit to SLO. I was not sure what to expect from the San Luis Creek Lodge because, though the reviews were awesome, the pictures made it appear quaint. But San Luis Creek Lodge did not disappoint. Staff was sweet and it is lovely to arrive to a hotel after driving 4 hours to be... More

We loved our room and the staff at the Creek Lodge was very friendly, but for 250 + tax per a night one should not be surprised to find a nicer looking Motel. And we had a noisy air vent keeping us up most of the night.

This property truly shows pride of ownership. There is great attention to detail in the decoration and the furnishings. We stayed in the Craftsman building and it definitely was a period room exemplifying Craftsman style. The TV was a Sony Smart TV, the largest unit I have ever experienced in a hotel. Breakfast was fantastic with eggs and waffles made... More
