staff was friendly, hotel was recently remodeled and is very clean. Free happy hour is a nice benefit. Location is perfect, right up the street from downtown. Cooked to order complimentary breakfast was great!

This place is fantastic. For 150 a night my family were very impressed. Free beer and wine from 5.30 to 7.30. BBQ dinner for $6 and under, Cooked breakfast and a beautiful room. The grounds were well looked after and the position was quiet. I would defiantly stay here again and can not recommend it enough.

We were lost and a bit down; we'd driven into a poor motel and driven straight out again and pulled int the parking lot of a hamburger restaurant. The young man pushing a broom was helpful; he told us he had worked here and thought it a good place "but a bit y'know upmarket" (=expensive?) Well; he was right. Good... More

I stayed here for work and it was a well run hotel with good staff. The rooms were a good size but maybe slightly dated. The complimentary happy hours in the bar were much appreciated. Definitely worth a stay if you are in the area.

This is a large property near the top of Monterey St, but just a mile walk from downtown. We parked our car on arrival and didn't use it again till we left two days later.

This hotel is close to downtown and Cal Poly... but it isn't the best option. My room was on the end and with the outside corridors made of tile and beginning at 5:30am when people were leaving pulling their roller bags, it was loud (click-click-click). If you stay here, request the 3rd floor. I was on the 2nd and could... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our hotel, and we apologize that your stay was not as enjoyable as it should have been. The tile decking can be a little noisy when rolling items hit the grooves, which is why we are in the process of replacing it with a smoother/quieter surface. As for the cleanliness... More

We spent 3 nights there on a visit to the central coast. There is great hiking and some beautiful vineyards nearby. The made to order breakfast and free happy hour were terrific. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. We stopped at the SLO Visitors Center and got fabulous advice. We'll be back.

A very comfortable suite (1 bedroom) hotel. Clean, modern, excellent location, and a very friendly staff. To top it off, the stay includes a generous breakfast (omlettes made to order and more), and a manager's reception (5:30-7:30 free wine and beer). Free WiFi with good coverage throughout the hotel. Gym is OK - a bit small, but functional. Hot water... More
