Upon arriving at the inn, you notice that they have put a lot of care into this property. The outside is very clean and the grounds look good. We arrived about 45 minutes before check in and our room was not ready, which was OK with us. The check in staff was very kind and checked to see if any other rooms were ready, but being a holiday weekend, everything was booked. He let us have our keys anyways and told us the room would be ready in 30 minutes, which it was. I appreciated being able to get the keys without having to come by the office again when the room was ready. By the way, when I say room key, I mean room key. Not a card, but an actual big, heavy key, which is not very convenient.
The rooms have parking right in front of your door, which can have its plusses and minuses, depending on whether you mind that sort of thing. Since the room had a real key, it also had a regular doorknob and deadbolt, which left me feeling a little insecure, but you are in SLO so there's not too much to worry about. The room was old fashioned, but well maintained. We stayed in a room with a queen sized bed. The room is very small, as is typical of an establishment of this age. I was happy that the channels available on cable were of a good variety, as it seems that most places barely give you any channels to choose from nowadays. The tv had a built in vcr and you could check out movies from the front desk. They seemed to have a pretty good selection.
The bathroom was small and old fashioned, but clean. No frills here. Towels, toilet paper, some makeup remover towelettes, and a little bar of wafer thin soap are all you get. No tub, just a shower stall. There is a soap dispenser in the shower which seems to have some kind of shampoo/body wash?
Small, built in vanity with mirror, table with two chairs, and a very tiny closet round out the room. There is a suitcase valet that will fit a carryon in the closet, so that was nice. Bed was OK. Pillows were OK. Nothing to write home about. Didn't need to use the window mounted air conditioner. Did need to use the heater...wow. The heater in the room is a wall heater that I would guess dates to the late 50's, early 60's. Pilot light and all. The thermostat's on/off button was missing, so we had to move the temp up and down, no biggie. It roared to life (literally) and heated the room very well for the night. Note that I said "the night". The next morning when I woke up to take a shower, I turned the heater back up and nothing happened. It was freezing. I ended up getting dressed and heading to the continental breakfast. When I returned 20 minutes later, the room had warmed up a bit. I'm sorry, but it's 2008 and I just am not into waiting 20 minutes for the heater to get going.
Being an older inn, the walls were nice and thick. Barely heard anything from next door. The continental breakfast consisted of cereal, tea, coffee, an assortment of breads and muffins with jams and butter, fruit, hardboiled eggs, and juice. Toaster did not work, which I found out the hard way. Other than that, a decent spread. There are tables and chairs to eat at, as well as a little patio area.
In general, a clean, quiet place. Just really old.
