“Large rooms & nice service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011 via mobile

Arrived late and got 2 nice rooms right next to each other. Internet is sooo slow but wireless coverage is better than most places. Price for a double Queen was 85 incl. Tax and breakfast.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

Room was clean, mattress was comfortable and the continental breakfast was fresh. This is a older motel but well maintained. Parking is somewhat cramped but it's free. For the one night that we were there and we didn't want to spend a fortune this was a very good value.

Great location - only a few blocks walk to centre of town, and easy to find right off the freeway. Room is very basic and fairly small, bed not so comfortable, but room appeared clean. Considering location, free wifi and breakfast (slept in and missed it so I cannot comment) we thought it was good value.

Guy at front desk was helpful with what to do in town BUT missed out on telling us to take Highway 1 to Monterey instead of the 101 the next day. This was meant to be the most scenic route on the west coast of America and we had no idea we should have taken a different route than the GPS advised. If he'd listened to anything I'd said that's the one thing he should have advised as a local.

Anyway, the next day I started noticing itchy welts all over and discovered I had been bitten by bed bugs from this place. Don't stay here until it's fixed! The doctor advised pull up the sheets at the end of the bed and check the mattress, and surrounding the mattress area under, around, etc. They're small but can be seen by the naked eye. They're very difficult to get rid off so check your room out before you stay! I'm still itching 2 weeks later :(

Don't really know what to say. I put some stuff in the room which was in a plastic bag and when I came back in and opened the bag everything had been sprayed with gobs of perfume. I'm assuming that someone did this maliciously which means that they go through all your stuff.

My wife and I were looking for a base from which to enjoy kayaking, sights in San Luis Obispo, and some fine dining. This hotel was perfect. The staff were very attentive to our needs, such as extra pillows and opening the safe (which the previous guest left closed). They were also very friendly, courteous, and as a family business are very hard-working.
If you are looking for a good value for a hotel that is in a nice place and offers a basic breakfast, fridge, and microwave in a comfortable room, this is a good one. They do not exactly have a full business center, but they have a computer in the front office with internet access as well as wireless internet access in all the rooms. It is not a luxury hotel, but what it offers, it does very well, and at a great value. Thank you, Travelodge San Luis Obispo!

My sister-n-law and I stayed her from June 30th until July5th and we had a very clean room with a nice set up with fridge and microwave. Had a clean bathroom and staff kept it clean each day. It was our hotel launch point as we went to the beach towns and Hearst Castle. Asit was the most helpful and friendly manager and went out of his way to help us with information. We felts very safe in SLO and the trolley stops right outside your hotel for the ride to the farmers market. ONly 25Cents each way! I might stay here again but book outside of Expedia as I think I could get a better rate. THe hotel was fairly full 4th of July . Pool was heated but still felt too cold for me. Its is in the way of the parking lot.. the breakfast area was cramped but you could take your tray from yoru room and get your food and take it back to your room. Had a computer to use in lobby to.

Got a good rate for a one night stay by booking on-line. Room is basic but comfortable. As with all US motels difficult to make tea! Walking distance from downtown San Kuis Obispo and set back from road so very little traffic noise.
