Stayed here a week for a conference at Cal Poly. It is close to the university so my company booked it for me. Next year I'll have the same conference, but I will be staying somewhere else. I had a one-queen room that was small and very out-dated. Carpet was old, the furniture was old, and not real nice. The... More

This place needs a serious revamp. Loose stair steps, moldy shower, dirty carpet, non working ice machine, lumpy pillows, mud for coffee, slow Wifi. The best part of this well worn hotel is the staff. There are many other choices in SLO to stay. This place does not deserve the Choice Hotel branding.

This Comfort Inn had a quaint feel about it, to match the town itself. Although we were on the "road" side of the hotel, it was very quiet. Clean room and nice, free breakfast in the morning. Comfortabe beds. What more could we ask for?

The room is clean, staff are very friendly, and complimentary breakfast is filling. However, the room itself is not sound proof. You can hear noises in the next room such as toilet flushing, conversation, and worse, snorring. I could not sleep at all. I hate to hear the sound of someone snorring and it is not even in my room.... More

The facilities were awesome and Nicole was invaluable. She was incredibly helpful to me and my family and really went out of her way to accommodate us. We enjoyed the whole experience.

I like staying at Comfort Inns because of the spas and pools. But one thing I quickly found out is that all Comfort Inns are not created equal. When traveling in the midwest the swimming pools are located inside and when traveling in Calif. the pools are located outside. I like to take a nice swim in a warm pool... More

Everything about our stay was excellent. Extremely clean, spacious, updated, and quiet room. Great location with helpful staff in the evening who helped us find the perfect place to eat in town. Check-out staff was delightful. Thanks Comfort Inn for a great stay---keep up the great work!

My son and I were delighted to check-in with Chad at the front desk and to do business with him several times over our 3-day stay. As I walked back to my room I searched for the right word to describe his helpfulness and it struck me, "accomodating". How appropriate for a person in the business of accomodations.

I brought momma to CA. to visit my sister. Decided to venture off from the family and check out an area, San Luis Obispo, that I'd read about. My usual protocol is to head for the destination and query hotels by phone along the way. Well, that didn't work too well this time. One, you can't talk on the phone... More

My room was nice but the bed was not very comfortable. The morning desk clerk was very nice and helpful when I checked out. The complimentary breakfast was excellent.
