“Lovely, relaxing getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

My fiancé and I stayed one night here with a room in the Plantation building. The room was very clean, comfortable, and luxurious! Friendly staff works hard to make sure guests are pleased. Lovely breakfast. Definitely went above and beyond expectations. We are locals and we plan to return to the lodge for another staycation here soon!

My wife and I stayed at San Luis Creek Lodge for two nights over Super Bowl weekend, and it was a fantastic experience. The rooms were beautifully equipped and well maintained, the staff members were all polite and helpful, and the breakfast was amazing. Fresh waffles and scrambled eggs?? Yes please! For the price, I can't imagine a better experience, would stay here again in a heartbeat!

My wife and I were passing through San Luis Obispo and decided to stay in a place we hadn't tried yet. We stayed in the Londonderry. The English decor was a nice change and although the website stated a refresh was done on the rooms in 2008 everything looked as if it was brand new. The room was very cozy with a comfortable bed,fireplace and a large screen TV. Free DVD's were available with popcorn to pop in the microwave. Breakfast was very good, eggs made fresh. I wish we had more time to enjoy the Winter Romance Special, tempting for the next time we return!

Thank you very much for your review on Tripadvisor, we appreciate your taking time out of your day. We do try to keep our rooms as well maintained and cared for as possible, so it is very gratifying when guests notice that.

Please come back and see us again, and if you are able to take advantage of the Winter Specials on our website, that would be wonderful!

The room was large; the decor was nice; the room was in the rear and quiet, as requested. Breakfast had the typical range of breads, pastries, and cereals. In addition, staff would prepare scrambled eggs or french toast to order, and bacon and sausage was available. The lodge was much better than the typical motel and well worth its number one ranking.

The one drawback for me is that the lodge is over a mile from the downtown area, the site of most of the good restaurants and places of interest.

We recently stayed at the San Luis Creek Lodge and had a very satisfying stay. We found our room to be quiet, clean and very comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was very good and the staff were great.

Room Tip: Ask about the style of décor as you have choices.

This hotel was built not that long ago by an American octogenarian architect who was obviously having a bit of fun before he retired. It is very British, even down to the red telephone box standing outside. We had a very good reception by a Mancurian lady. The hotel is arranged in different buildings with plenty of parking close to each one. We were on the first floor of a building called Londonderry, and it was a very impressive room with dark wood ceiling beams and furniture, and a corner real flame fireplace which was very homely. The bedroom and bathroom were extremely well finished and we even had a four-poster king bed with ornate colonnaded corner posts.
We walked to 'downtown' which only took about 10 minutes and once there we discovered a huge variety of restaurants, shops and galleries. It was obvious the Creek Lodge was by far the most characterful hotel in Monterey Street, where most of the other hotels are situated.
Breakfast was excellent, and in addition to the continental breakfast available on a self-service basis, there was the option of asking for freshly made scrambled egg (which we thought was overcooked) and waffles. Hot oatmeal/porridge was also available. Overall a very good experience.

We stayed 2 nights and found the San Luis Creek Lodge to be the perfect getaway for a couple. Warm and inviting and cozy rooms - ours had a fireplace - loved the furnishings, especially the four-poster bed. Very romantic! Super breakfast both mornings and very attentive staff. They sent us to an amazing 4 star restaurant for dinner. Because of the hotel's central location, we were able to walk everywhere and we loved leaving our car behind. All in all, we can't wait to return to this very special hotel.
