“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We were very pleasantly surprised at this hotel. It was obvious that it had been recently remodeled, and everything was in excellent condition. Room was clean and comfortable, and the front desk staff was exceptionally friendly. Great restaurants within walking distance, and easy access to the highway. If we ever go through there again, we would stay there again in a heartbeat.

The hotel is close to the freeway, easy to find and within walking distance to downtown. Plenty of parking space and the check in was swift and friendly.
The room was very clean and you could tell it was recently remodeled. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was great. The wifi worked fine. It was also quiet during the night.
The breakfast is not a reason to pick this hotel: toast, cereal, pastry and bananas. But at least it kept us alive an hour or two.
This was our first visit to San Luis Obispo and it is a charming town. I would gladly go back and then probably choose this hotel again – but get breakfast elsewhere …

This hotel was very clean, and you can tell it was recently remodeled. The room looked modern and clean, and the bathroom was the same. The AC worked well, and the breakfast was decent. The front desk staff was friendly, and you can't beat a location right off the freeway and within walking distance of downtown. Worth the money, and a very nice experience.

I stayed 3 nights on business at Cuesta College. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. I would stay here again anytime. In a great area of downtown, so you can easily walk to dinner or other shops.

Room Tip: Staying during the week is a cheaper rate.

Facility has an excellent location to down town, but that is where anything excellent ends. The rooms were clean but ordinary. The breakfast opened at 7:30 and I would characterize as average at best. Waffle maker, two cereals, apples, oatmeal, toast and rolls and of course coffee. Staff were friendly.

This recently renovated motel is ideally located in town, a comfortable 4 or 5 block walk from all the restaurants and shops. Room is very attractive, with all the amenities. We were there on a weeknight and got a great price ($87.). I understand weekend rates are much higher,

Room Tip: No elevator, so specify 1st floor if you can't climb stairs to 2nd floor

I think price/quality that this was our best experience during our roadtrip. Very nice bed, it was nicely decorated as well. The bathroom was smaller than in other motels, but more than enough. Nice rainshower! We've spend two nights, because SLO has a nice ambience (shopping, restaurants, theatres,...) and nice weather. Better than at the coast.
There is free wifi and breakfast (cereal, toast and some muffins, also bananas and coffee).
It is located about two-three blocks from downtown city centre, easy access on foot.
