Myself and my fiance stopped here on the way from San Francisco to LA and it was a great choice. Not too expensive for a night. Huge room with a comfy bed. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating, the breakfast was nice and I'm sure if we were to stay longer with then it would be a good choice... More

We stayed here because the place we normally stay up the road had no room for us......could not have been a better mishap! We fell in love with our room in Londonderry!! It was like the room we had in York England! The people could not have been friendlier, the food for breakfast was delightful and we just appreciated all... More

First the negatives, it's nestled in between lower end motel/hotel such as Super 8 and Econo Lodge types. It's a bit of a walk to the main downtown restaurants and sights like the Mission. About a 1/2 to 1 mile. My wife and I love to walk so this didn't bother us. The room is not as big as it... More

My husband and I picked this hotel based solely on the excellent Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We had the most gorgeous room with a four poster bed, beautiful linens, a fireplace and gorgeous bathroom. It was over the top for what we paid and far exceeded our expectations even with the wonderful reviews. What was just... More

When traveling for business, I'm usually a Mariott girl, but the San Luis Creek Lodge lured me in with the fantastic reviews and low prices. (It was actually cheaper than the Courtyard Mariott in town, which was surprising.) The hotel itself is very charming. There's a small gatehouse up front that houses the office and also the breakfast room. The... More

My wife and I stayed here one night on our way to SF from LA. We were fortunate enough to choose this place. The experience was great from beginning to end with friendly service at reception in the afternoon at check-in and a tasty breakfast with Starbucks coffee in the morning. One disappointment is that no one asked us if... More

Super clean, comfortable bed, quiet location (especially the Plantation building in the rear of the property), excellent breakfast, friendly staff, convenient location for college and downtown. Double sinks and over-sized shower in the bath.

Honestly, I almost wish I wasn't reviewing Creek Lodge because I want it to remain quiet and hidden! There is a reason why this place is #1 in SLO - it truly is a quaint property. Windows that opened onto a hill and fresh air. An electric fireplace, refrigerator, microwave, well-stocked coffee/tea and hot chocolate! And the best idea I... More

We've been on the road for a while; headed for home, sweet home. But the interlude requires road lodging, and the San Luis Creek Lodge is a cut above. Wonderful in every respect; comfortable, quiet, modern, tasteful. It is what you hope to find and seldom do. Nice job. I hope it 'ages' well, with the Craftsman style furnishings. One... More
