Property is fairly cozy, but we had a great stay for the 4th of July weekend. We had kids in our party, and they definitely enjoyed the pool. It is not very close to major attractions of downtown SLO, but everything is 5-10 minutes away. Our room was a standard king room, and it was very comfy and updated. TV... More

I arrived by car and there is ample free parking around the hotel. My room on the 3rd floor was sufficiently comfortable with sofa and view over the pool. The room was quiet and the bed comfortable. There was a microwave oven and an empty refrigerator; one can buy frozen and minibar style items at the market attached to reception.... More

I pre-paid using Priceline but the hotel charged the full stay on the credit card I gave them for incidentals. Once I realized this, I called and spoke with the front desk manager who told me she would issue a credit to my account, but a month later, my credit card bill is due and still no credit issued. So... More

Arrived after dinner - had one drink in bar - went to bed. Woke up to goats on the hill behind the hotel. Was fine. Nothing glamorous, but convenient and priced right. Not free breakfast. Had plenty of items in the little store to get something to eat before hitting the road.
