“Lovely stop-over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Loved the Quality Suites! The suites are good size and come with all the amenities. The place itself shows a lot of character - with a heated swimming pool and fire places around the pool surrounded by a lovely seating area. Staff is polite and helpful and the morning breakfast pretty functional with hot food choices compared to many other similar motels that offer next to nothign with their cold breakfast choices!

Highly recommend this motel for a day or two stop over in this neat little town.

Our reasonably priced and well-located roomy double included a balcony, flat screen TV, large drawers & coat closet. The suite sitting room provided a long L shaped couch, coffee table, DVD player, micro, refrig., sink, 2nd flat screen, attractive wood table with chairs, and plenty of move around room. Lighting, colors and artwork are bright and inviting. Pluses include: free wireless Internet, free parking, very comfortable beds, free wine in the evening, BBQ sandwiches available for reasonable price with seating by pool, and a friendly desk staff.
The bathroom is adequate with outside sink, and my only complaint is the annoying slider door without sufficient handle making bathroom entry and exit difficult. I would not hesitate staying there again.

Room Tip: We were on top floor overlooking pool. This could be noisy on summer nights with poolside dining.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and posting it on tripadvisor. It was nice just to see that you found our hotel to be reasonably priced and well located. We appreciate the description you gave of the amenities we provide our guests. We liked hearing your thoughts on the handle for the pocket door. We will look into other door handle options that would work better for our guests.

We hope to see you again the next time you are in SLO.

Thank you,

My wife and I decided to stay here on New Years Eve- for our first time visiting SLO. Turned out to be a great choice. Less expensive than other brand named hotels, and the value is much better. Pool, jacuzzi, more room space, two dvd players, dvd rentals in the lobby, a games/library area next to the bar (in a sep. room), complimentary breakfast included (which is really nice), clean facility, etc. Seems like this place goes the extra mile...they had an employee in their BBQ area grilling burgers. Looked to be a nice setup for people of all ages. Really enjoyed and would recommend to a couple/family vacationing for a weekend escape where the budget is a factor. Great value.

The staff here were incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was immaculately clean and quite large. The rooms have separate seating and sleeping areas which is really nice if there is more than one person traveling. The grounds are pretty with little niches to spend time in (tables, a gazebo, fire pits, etc). The breakfast was AMAZING! Talk about five stars! The breakfast is made to order and they have TONS of options. I would HIGHLY recommend this place!

We arrived late at night, very tired from a long trip. The hotel staff immediately found our reservation and directed us to our suite. Everything was in order and we slept peacefully. Breakfast was spectacular, with a variety that made everyone want to stay on for lunch. But we managed to leave for our next destination, with great memories of the hotel in San Luis Obispo.

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review our hotel on tripadvisor. We are delighted to that you decided to celebrate the New Year at our hotel. Over the last several years we have been providing our complimentary shuttle to downtown on New Years Eve. This allows our guests to celebrate the many New Year festivities that go on in town without the need to drive their cars. This has been very well received by our guests. Taking the train here was a great idea. With our ability to shuttle guests to the train station as well as to the downtown festivities makes a car unnecessary for many of our guests.

It was great to see that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again.

Thank you,

This is the best hotel in SLO for visiting your student at Cal Poly or Questa. They give you so much for the $$--a hot breakfast w/eggs your style, bacon or sausage, fried potatoes, waffles, and in addition all the things you'd get with continental breakfast. Then 5:30-7:30pm is wine/beer hours--free Salmon Creek wine poured, all you want, with pretzel mix for a snack. Don't miss the hot cookies at the front desk that come out around 6 (you'll smell them!). And if you come with a group, there are places all around the pool and outside and inside to congregate with your group: 2 great couch firepits, many heatlamps, the inside library and bar area, and lobby.
Each clean room has a king or 2 double beds, and a hide a bed couch, and an private outside deck. The staff is professional and knowledgeable, and if you want a ride into town, they have a shuttle to fit 4 people--so no car if you don't want. And if you want a good margarita, just step next door to Pepe Delgados for some good cheap Mexican food.
This is the best place to stay in SLO!!

Room Tip: Be near the pool on the inner courtyard on the 1st or 2nd floor, as you'll be going into the hot...

Thank you for providing a review of our hotel on tripadvisor. I was good to see that you “got a lot for the money”. Providing a great value is as important to us as it is to our guests. We want our guest to come away feeling that they got more than their monies worth when they visit our hotel. From what I read it looks like you were able to experience our many amenities. Our whole package is what provides the greatest value.

Thank you for providing such a through review. We look forward to seeing you again.
