The uncreative name of the place makes easy to picture what it looks like. As the name says, the place is what it is: a good inn to spend the night once in the region. No luxury, no attractions at the hotel, a very good and well equipped bedroom (AC, Cable TV, Parking, Fridge…) to rest and keep the trip... More

The San Luis Inn is a clean and wonderful place for a quick stop. The staff is extremely friendly and hospitable. Perfect for a Cal poly grad and working professional. It is within walking distance of the downtown, Cal Poly rec center and library.

The hotel was very clean, quiet, and convenient to downtown and just off 101. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Check-in/check-out was fast. Very good value. I recommend this spot if you need a good stop over point.

We wanted to stay in San Luis Obispo on our way home. We found this inn very nice, well kept. Can't complain about the location, near to a lot of restaurants. Not too much road noise. It has a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker.

This 3 star motel more than lives up to its rating. From the pleasant and helpful receptionist to the accessible and clean well-furnished rooms, this place is a winner. In addition to the usual amenities, it is located only a few doors down from the Apple Farm Restaurant with its excellent food and interesting gift shop.

We had a very nice stay at the Inn. The rooms are newly remodeled, great big screen TV. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We liked it so much we booked again. Centrally located to the college. The staff came straight to our call when I had trouble using the remote control because I wasn't familiar with the format.... More

Best Western never told me they had sold the place. No ice machine, no microwave, 7am breakfast was late opening. Mildew & peeling paint in bathroom. No newspapers. Loud domestic disputes both nights.

This used to be a Best Western, recently under new ownership, endeavoring to bring the facility up to date. Provides a clean and spacious-enough room with a small refrigerator and adequate parking. The continental breakfast is basic but sufficient. We were impressed with the attention to our needs we received from the owner and her manager. Very accommodating! They have... More
