This property is an older grouping of buildings located within walking distance of Downtown San Luis Obispo. We stayed in a King Suite on the ground floor of the building across the street from the main part of the hotel. The suite was very roomy with 2 King beds, 2 wide screen TV's,, a very roomy vanity/closet area, and a... More

We thought we were getting a good deal on the two bedroom suites on the other side of the road. Come to find out, they are older and not clean at all. After unpacking we discovered our sink was clogged (not by our doing) and the residue was left in the sink. We moved to another room that was smaller... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel in SLO. The hotel is divided into two different buildings. The one where we have stayed is across the street from the main building and is a motel-style building. The rooms and furniture are dated and smell like old carpet (we bought air freshners). The A/C is an old-style... More

We had not planned on staying at this facility, booked on the road at the last minute. We would not have planned on staying at this facility by looking at the previous reviews, so I am glad we didn't see them. We had a wonderful experience. The property is very nice, extremely clean, the rooms appointed wonderfully. It looks to... More

The man working the desk was super friendly and even walked us to our room. The room is spacious with a VERY spacious bathroom, and appears to be very clean. My only complaint is that being 2/3 of the way through a three week road trip, it's time to do quite a bit of laundry and there is only one... More

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...
