With a son studying at Cal Poly SLO, I make the lovely trek to the Central Coast fairly often. Up until now, my options have been 1. Chain hotel/motel or 2. Victorian Bed and Breakfast. Hallelujah for the Granada. I happened upon it through Trip Advisor/Yelp and it seemed like the aesthetic that I appreciate without the insanely high boutique hotel prices. My room was small but not claustrophobic. The bed was divine and the exposed brick (even in the shower!) was charming. There is an upper deck that may be enjoyed by the hotel guests that looks over the bistro and street below. I did not eat in the bistro (next time!) but did enjoy a glass of wine. My server, Kelly, was adorably friendly as was the front desk manager on duty, Kathleen. All in all, I was impressed by both the property itself and the staff that I encountered. Good job, Granada. I will be back.
