Stayed here for a college graduation a few years ago and we were visiting CalPoly so booked again - had a great rate about a month in advance. Each time I changed the rate went up! Lots of little issues with room - no inner liner (sheer curtain) on drapes (even though there was a rod), peeling paint above the... More

As a flight attendant, I get the opportunity to frequent numerous accommodations throughout the country and this is by far the worst place I've ever had the displeasure of staying. Unfortunately, during spring break, our normal hotel was overbooked so we had to stay whevever rooms were available. The comfort inn & "suites" was obviously available for a reason. Maid... More

With the exception of slightly patchy WiFi this hotel was one of our favourites of a cross USA journey. Nice sized room, clean and comfortable. Particularly liked the outdoor/indoor corridor arrangement of the hotel - a bit quirky. Walking distance to downtown (10-15 mins) for plenty of restaurant choice both there and en-route - there really is no need to... More

Our oldest attends Cal Poly SLO and we visit the area quite frequently. There are 6 of us and we usually get two rooms or pay alot of money for a suite during weekends when there are football or sccer games. We tried the Lamplighter and we were truly surprised. We booked the family suite. The suite has 1 king... More

We were stopping off in San Luis Obispo and wanted somewhere good value overnight, this fitted the bill just right. Our room was clean, well equipped and comfortable. Whilst in town we went to Louisa's Place, which was very tasty and also to Sunset Drive-In, which was great fun. After the drive-in we walked to the Irish bar up the... More

After being let down by the peach tree inn who did not hold our reservation we booked into here as the only hotel available. Happened to be a conference on at the time... Staff were great and checked us in quickly after a frustrating drive. Beds were very comfortable and breakfast in the morning was great to head on out... More

If you simply want a cheap place to lay your head for a night while you continue on your travels, this is the place. Rooms are very small. Place is clean, but worn. Free Breakfast appreciated, but minimal offerings. Better walking locations in downtown Pismo. But price was right. We had a room for 4 for under 100 bucks out... More

On a recent, last minute road trip up the coast we stopped here basically just to sleep. The rooms are a little tired looking and stuffy. I don't remember an air conditioning system in the room and this could be a problem in the heat of summer...the night was cool enough that we slept with the window open (we were... More
