Stayed for one night as a very convenient and timely stop off between Monterey and LA. Excellent location just off the freeway, and on the doorstep of what appears to be a friendly and lively community in SLO. Hotel manager was an accommodating and friendly host, with good local knowledge for a couple of recommendations. The room was excellent. Freshly... More

I needed to make a last-minute reservation and was very pleased with what I found! The hotel staff was extremely helpful, courteous, knowledgeable about the area and very accommodating in recommending places/activities. The rooms... Fresh, modern, extra-comfy, nicely furnished and VERY CLEAN. The free breakfast is an excellent perk, as well. The overall property was well kept, safe, in a... More

We stayed here for a short visit to SLO with our son and daughter in law. Both of our rooms were similar to 5 star hotels we've stayed at as far as cleanliness , comfort and style. I the cost was almost half of what other hotels in the area charge. We had a small issue with parking after arriving... More

The rooms were very clean and the bed was super comfortable. We really enjoyed the stay. The manager Sol Taylor was very friendly, helpful and informative. Perfect location. The rooms are actually nicer than the photos.

I'd stayed at this property years ago on business when it was part of a national chain and it was just okay. When I found it online recently, I was skeptical about the name change and loss of affiliation. But I was absolutely pleased with the changes. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable, clean,... More

Motel was clean, quiet, and the staff was friendly. The location is what sets this motel apart from others. It is an easy walk to downtown SLO. There is a simple breakfast on site that we chose not to use, but if you have kids it would be enough to get their day started.

Well located near the downtown San Luis Obispo, with restaurants around, the place looks a bit old and not that nice from the outside, but when you see the room, it is really nice and clean. It has a very comfortable bed, but the bathroom is quite small. Coffee maker in every room and breakfast is included.

You wouldn't tell from the outside as it looks as any travel lodge in the country, but once in the rooms you find a very nice, modern, clean and comfortable environment. All the usual comforts but at unusually low prices and it's just a few blocks from downtown San Luis Obispo. Just perfect !

Conveniently located right off 101 this is my favorite stop so far. We are driving up the CA coast and were pleasantly surprised to find this gem. The room appears newly renovated and cares for our needs in it's thoughtful design. The staff is very friendly and helpful. A short, and lovely walk from down town I would definitely recommend...
