We decided to stop over at San Luis Obispo on our way to San Francisco. We contemplated booking a room at the only Holiday Inn Express in town, but took our chances and arrived late evening at the hotel. The front desk staff was very friendly. We negotiated a great deal on the room price and got an excellent deal that included the breakfast. Being Priority Club members we also got a goodie bag, which had a couple of bottles of juice and a bag of crisps and sweeties.
The room was clean and comfortable, although very basic, typical of any Holiday Inn Express rooms. WiFi was free in the bedrooms, which was an excellent deal. The lady at the front desk provided us with useful information about the local events and places to eat around. One of her dining suggestions was a creek side restaurant named Novo, excellent food and great romantic atmosphere, not to miss if u are planing to have dinner in town.
We were there on a Thursday night, which is the weeknight for the famous Farmers Market in town, and there was a shuttle bus that took us downtown for a dollar, which we boarded from right outside the hotel. The market was awesome and worth a visit.
We had a comfortable stay in San Luis Obispo and will happily stay at this hotel again.
