As always, my wife enjoyed staying at the Villa Motel while visiting our son who's attending Cal Poly. We've been coming here for the last several years and always pick the Villa Motel as the place to stay while we're here. The rooms are spacious, quiet, and well-maintained, and the managers are very friendly and accommodating. Plus, the rates are...

We stopped here for the night on a three day road trip. Booked on the day, as we hadn't decided where to stop. Cheap motel off highway, but clean and friendly staff. Very modest and not overly modern, but nice and easy for a one night stop. 15 minute walk into the beautiful town with lots of shops, restaurants and...

This is an outdated hotel that needs a complete makeover. There are rust stains on the drains and metal fixtures the paint has been neglected for a long time. The location is close to downtown which is the only redeeming factor I could come up with. The price per night was low but I guess you get what you pay...

This is a nicely run family establishment offering clean and spacious rooms at an affordable price. I was initially put off that the office was closed at a 6 pm Saturday arrival. It would have been nice to have left a "be right back" note of some kind. After killing some time in town I returned and all was well...

Title tells it all. Very rundown, bad tacky repairs, noisy, smoking, screaming neighbors. No sleep for us. try one of the other places in the area first. this place is just a tad too shabby. You can do better. Motel 6 is better.

We had a great stay at Villa Motel. The personnel were extremely friendly and helpful, the room was clean and spacious, with great WiFi signal. We came on a Thursday evening when the street Farmer Market was on, it was only a 15 minute walk to the centre of town. The only problem was that our neighbours were quite loud...

We stayed at it right after a long day in Big Sur. We chose it because San Luis Obispo tends to be cheaper than Morro Bay due to its off-coast location. We got what we payed for: it was OK just to charge our devices and crash in bed. Receptionist was quite far from the friendliness which we usually saw...

Attractive location. Several restaurants within walking distance. Room was spacious and clean. Bed was very comfortable. Price was very affordable compared with other accomodations in the area. Quiet.

Sitting right between downtown and the Cal Poly SLO campus, Villa Motel is very conveniently located but still far enough away to have a quiet night. There are few affordable places to stay in San Luis Obispo, and this is one of, if not the, cheapest. It looks great after the recent renovations and the rooms were quite clean. The...

Best for the price in SLO. I have stayed at several other hotels/motels in SLO and I think I will be coming back here. It's not gonna give you 5 * accommodations, but for those of us who like a clean room, comfortable enough bed, hot shower and not shelling out tons of dough I'd say this is the place...
