We stayed here a couple nights as a gift from daughter - normally stay at Apple Farm, but were encouraged by the high reviews - definitely a quality place, but not the best and we'd stay at Apple Farm over this anytime - mostly because the physical layout is just too challenging for anything but a sub-compact car - deep,...

Spent a wonderful two nights here. Rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable. It's a short trip into town and it's on the trolley transportation line. Breakfast was included with the room and it was delicious. We would definitely stay here again.

Some travel days are tough and after a 7 hour car ride traveling just 210 miles you know it's one of these days. Not willing to be bothered further we decided to leave the 5 Freeway and look for relief. We found it in San Luis Obispo and booking a room at the San Luis Creek Lodge. Welcomed by a... More

The room was spacious and we were more than satisfied! The breakfast was very nice and the service was great! The manager was very helpful with information. What is not to like! We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in SLO.

Let me preface my review by saying we have stayed here in 2014 as well and I was remiss in not giving them a review as this is truly a great hotel with a manager (her name is June) and staff that offers an extra personal touch with charming accommodations. The hotel is well appointed with comfortable rooms/beds and spacious... More

This is a charming hotel which has large, well appointed room and nice spacious bathrooms. The staff were very efficient and helpful. The included breakfast was very nice esp. the eggs to order. The hotel was very centrally located.

Thank you for your comments here on Tripadvisor. It is very unusual for the Thursday Farmer's Market to be cancelled as our weather is great all year round. We hope you have an opportunity to come back and visit again on a Thursday. It is a great event! Thanks again and we hope to see you in the future, June More

Wonderful small hotel really enjoyed our stay. The bed was really comfortable. Looked like the place had been newly renovated and is being well taken care of. The breakfast was yummy. The staff seems very pleasant and enjoy there jobs. We Plan on returning.

The San Luis Creek Lodge is a lovely property. Our room in the Craftsman Building was quite nice. It would have been nicer if the windows could be opened. Only thing I really did not like about the property were the steep stairs that you need to climb to get to your room when located on the second floor. Be... More
