Conveniently located only a few blocks from Hwy 101, just north of downtown SLO and a few blocks from the Cal Poly St Univ campus, it has free parking directly around the inn. There is no lobby to speak of and a limited complimentary breakfast is available but we only learned of that by happenstance since there was no mention... More

Good Grief ! If you happened to be renting during OpenHouse, your room rates could have approached $160/night or more! But, right after these dates, the rates were cut about half ! So we got to our room and thought we were walking into two Queens instead of one but that was probably a misunderstanding on my part. Just the... More

Was moved from the room next to stairwell to an upper room that was much quieter. The room was small but comfortable. Disconcerting to hear water bubbling in our sink (2nd floor) when neighboring rooms used their showers or bathrooms sink. Called front desk for maintenance to check on it but no one ever showed up. Complained at checkout and... More

Average hotel. Front desk seemed a bit indifferent to us. Close to Hearst Castle. Rate was favorable compared to some other hotels in area. Breakfast nothing special. Room we had was quiet for sleeping.

This motel is directly across from the Quality Inn and Suites, where we usually stay. There is no comparison. All they need to do is clean the place up and it would be worth the money paid for a night' stay. The carpets are filthy and the pizza stain on the bedsheets a bit off putting. There was no bath...

Stayed here twice before and it's okay, this time was offered an upgrade to a king suite. thats great but... two of the walls next to the bed border the elevator shaft so you get constant mechanical noise every time the elevator moves. There is a door partially blocked by the t.v. that goes out to an unusable balcony that... More

Check in and check out the staff were personable and helpful. The room was on the back side away from the street (had to pay extra for the long walk). The bathroom was nearly as big as the room itself, the entry was crowded but did have the fridge and microwave as promised. We stayed one night on the way... More

I booked this room after calling to verify that it had two separate bedrooms plus a living room area. I booked the room based on the information given to me. Upon arrival I found that it was a large living room/bedroom combo with one separate bedroom not what I was told. The property is also very tired. The sofa was... More

Based on the previous, negative reviews, I was a hesitant to book this hotel. But the savings was considerable ($150 less than the BW Somerset up the street), so we took a chance. I'm glad we did! Our experience overall was positive. In short, friendly & accommodating staff & a decent room with everything we needed. Good value for the... More
