We came to visit CalPoly on "Parents Weekend," and everyplace else was booked. From the outside, Peach Tree looks like an old highway motel, and we discovered that's exactly what it is! What we did not expect, though, is that it was clean, comfortable, and very charming. We learned that it is family owned (17-years, I think she said), and had all the amenities we needed: wireless internet, great location (pretty) close to campus, and a delicious breakfast.
I would actually describe it more as a "bed and breakfast" than a motel. The owners were onsite: the wife handled our check-out and the husband laid out the hot oatmeal, local berries, and fresh sourdough bread for breakfast. There is a small library of books and board games to play in the "lobby" area (that feels more like a living room), and they played relaxing CD's and had several different newspapers available there. They were kind and gracious and made us feel at home.
Depending on who else might be in the motel, I can imagine it getting a bit noisy, but it wasn't while we were there.
Availability got us in, but price, location, hospitality, and cleanliness will send us back.
