We stayed here on a recent trip through SLO because we happened to have our dog with us and this place was listed as one of the better pet-friendly places in the area. It's not a luxury hotel by any means, but it was just fine, and I would gladly stay here again.
The rooms are a nice size, and very clean, with comfortable mattresses and bedding. Although pets are allowed (for a $15 fee), there was no hint of pet odors, fur, or other mess in the rooms. Dogs are welcomed (they even give you a couple of dog biscuits as a treat for your pet on check-in), and there seemed to be quite a few dogs staying there with their owners, but there was no barking or other noise audible in the rooms.
There is free wi-fi access in the rooms, and it works quite well. There is a small, but nicely-equipped for its size, workout area. The pool and jacuzzi area is spacious and nicely maintained. The property has a small fenced-in pet exercise area where dogs can run around off-leash.
The heating/AC system is a little outdated (wall units that don't have thermostats to shut the fan off when the room reaches the desired temperature), but it works OK, albeit a little too noisy.
All in all, not the fanciest place in the world, but certainly nice enough, and very nicely maintained. And it comes at a reasonble price for this Central Coast location.
