“Very pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of nights and were happy with the accommodations. It's not a luxury hotel, but that's not what we were looking for on this trip. The suite was roomy. If you want a quieter room reserve one near the gazebo courtyard, not the pool. We were near the gazebo and didn't have any noise issues. The exercise room is not large by any means but sufficient. We enjoyed using it the 2 mornings we were there. Breakfast is included and we were very happy with it. It's cooked to order and much more substantial than a typical continental breakfast. We had omlettes, waffles, fresh fruit, sausage. The hotel is close to the downtown area and they offer a shuttle to and from the hotel. We didn't use this feature but I can see how it would come in handy.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and posting it on tripadvisor. It makes all of us at the hotel feel good to know that you had a “very pleasant stay”. Many of the things that you covered in your review are mentioned by our guests as the amenities that provided them the most pleasure during their stay. Even though you did not take advantage of our free shuttle to downtown we hope you got an opportunity to visit the surrounding area. Most of our guests that visit our town while they are here find they enjoy the special features that San Luis Obispo has to offer.

We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are able to visit us.

Thank you,

We just stayed here for the 1st time. The location to downtown is great. The price is very reasonable with the hot breakfast, evening poolside bbq (you can feed small children dinner with this bbq!), and happy hour. The rooms were clean and the staff were very accommodating on the locale of the room we needed (quiet - in the back away from the pool area). We will definitely be coming here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the third floor in the back of the hotel were extremely quiet.

Thank you for providing a review of our hotel and posting it on tripadvisor. We liked knowing that this was the first time you have stayed with us and you will definitely be coming here again. It helps our Associates know they are doing a good job when they see and hear our guests enjoying their time at our hotel.

Our poolside barbecue is very popular with our guests. It is nice to see everyone enjoying the hotel and their time together.

We look forward to seeing you again.

Thank you,

We have stayed here several times. It is the best on Montery St. A little more $ but when you factor in the hot breakfast & happy hour (included) nice rooms & location, nightly poolside BBQ, it adds up as a pretty good deal.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and posting it on tripadvisor. It was great to read that you have stayed with us several times. We always consider it a great complement to our hotel and staff when we see guests returning. We have found that our customers appreciate having all our amenities packaged into one price rather than tacking on additional fees for each item.

We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are able to visit San Luis Obispo.

Overall excellence in customer service! I have been staying the Quality Suite Inn in San Luis Obispo on Monterey Street off and on since the 1990s. Yes, it has gone through some changes which I am happy to report they are very positive. The staff are truly a team vested in customer satisfaction. This is a hotel and business that gives value for money to its customers and is not like many business of today where you pay more and get less. You get great value for your money which includes a well kept suite, full breakfast and happy hour included and, if you don't want to walk to town there is a free ride for you too. The hotel staff are engaging and go out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. A special thanks to Lisa, Jenny, Ashley, Oscar and Bruce who made by mini vacation a delightful experience! Looking for to my return visit. Cheers, Elizabeth Victoria C.

We were here for 2 nights and having a toddler and 2 rooms was perfect, we were able to get her to bed and still relax and watch TV. All the front desk girls were very helpful and very nice. Assisted us with all of our questions and suggestions for food, drinks and closest beach. We had a really nice time here.

Thank you for telling us about your stay and posting a review of our hotel on tripadvisor. I know from experience that traveling with a toddler can be both a special and challenging experience. To know that you were able to relax and enjoy your stay is reassuring to us. Finding out that families are able to enjoy and relax during their visit to our hotel is one of the greatest pleasures we sense in providing a memorable experience to our guests.

We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are able to visit San Luis Obispo.

First time staying here and I am glad we found this property. Stayed one night and came away thinking this is a good value for an oversize suite. Made to order breakfast, evening beer and wine and some soda for the kids all free in a very beautiful pool/courtyard setting. Staff was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay even bringing us extra blankets. Highly recomend this hotel.

Room Tip: Had room 325 at the back of the hotel. Very quiet with a seperate courtyard from pool.

We recently stayed in this hotel on a road trip. We were very happy with the location, the price and the room, very clean, would recommend this to anyone traveling in this direction. We really enjoy Quality Inn's (Choice Hotels) the free breakfast is always a plus!

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and posting it on tripadvisor. It was nice to read that you were very happy with our hotel. Your recommendation of our hotel is one of the highest forms of praise that we can receive. Our free breakfast is one of our most popular items that our guests tell us about. Since we are in an agricultural community we have added local products to our breakfast menu. We hope you were able to enjoy some of these during your stay.

We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are able to visit San Luis Obispo.
