Our daughter was in critial condition and was transfered to a hospital in San Luis Obispo. We needed a place to stay near the hospital and happened on the Comfort Inn. The staff was very nice and considerate, making our stay as nice as possible. The room was clean and comfortable. We felt safe and sleep as well as could... More

We requested and paid extra for a suite expecting it to be a nicer room. We had one bedroom and another bedroom/living room. The rooms were old and dated, the carpeting was stained, the linens were thin and warn, there was no alarm clock and the wi-fi didn't work. When we complained to the desk staff, we were told that...

We're tourists from Australia traveling LA to SF. We stayed in the rooms 'across the road' at the back of the hotel - in a family suite. 1xK, 2xQ in two rooms, and 2x large TV's. Nice and spacious and wonderfully quiet, concrete floors so really didn't notice any other guests (there were others). Furniture all looking a bit tired... More

The room was on the small side, but every standard item (fridge, microwave, tv, coffee maker...) was there, and the bathroom was spotless. Nothing special besides that - just another budget hotel.

SLO town was pretty booked, I don't care for motels with room doors opening to outside walkways, but I was just staying one night and didn't want to pay more than $100 and this place was it. I had reserved 2 rooms online. One room had a leaky toilet with a big puddle of water on the floor, the other... More

I liked very much this hotel, specially because of the staff. They helped me a lot. I was travelling with 2 children and the staff was very helpful and friendly. And the free breakfast... was very good.

In a town with overpriced hotels, this turned out to be one of the more reasonable. The room was adequate, but small with oversized furniture. Outdoor pool was convenient, but cold! Free breakfast buffet -- expanded continental. Convenient location to downtown.

As other reviewers have stated there are 3 parts to this hotel, the newer building around the pool, another portion connected to the main portion (with an exterior corridor) and the annex building across the street. I was in the section behind the pool. My first impression of the room was how small it was, I ended up putting a... More

A nice 3 night stay while attending a class at Calpoly. Very close to campus but still requires a car to get there and the main part of downtown is 5 blocks down. The motel is clean and quiet the week I was there. Breakfast was adequate with waffles the surprise item. I liked how the maids left you alone... More

I had booked a bargain-price ($149) queen-only room online because we don't really spend much time in the room anyway. This place looked nice from the outside and the front desk staff was very friendly, but the first-floor queen room was absolutely disgusting. Stained and dirty carpets (not vacuumed) , reeked of disinfectent, and the funkiest shower-only bathroom with dirty... More
