Room was very clean and for short stays was very accessible to town. Manager was very helpful and quick to sort out the smallest of problems without a drama. I found the bed very comfortable and a nice quiet area

Perfectly clean, no musty odor or smells from cleaning products, windows were open when we arrived and well aired-out. Walls are showing their age and could use a coat of paint. A few nicks and dents all over. Bed firm, comfortable, pillows firm & took some getting used to. Sheets & towels clean and no smoky smell. Newer air conditioning...

We spent one short night at the Villa Motel during a road trip. The room suited our needs: convenient, clean and good value. The hotel was basic and old-fashioned, could use a freshening up, but was just fine for the night.

We just got back from a night in SLO and stayed at the Villa Motel. The location is great - walking distance from the town center and just blocks from Central Coast Brewery, restaurants and shops. The rooms are decent size, clean and comfortable. There are even mountain views from the rooms. It's a great place to spend a night...

Since we would be arriving late & leaving early we were looking for an economical room. This motel was a very pleasant surprise! The room was very clean with a comfy bed. Our room was a nice size. There is a refrigerator, microwave & coffeemaker in each room. The showerhead was great & I appreciated the power strips with extra...

The check in was quick and easy. Ample parking. While the decor was dated, it was a spacious and clean room. Free WiFi was of medium speed. Safe area, quiet. Good price and location. I would stay here again.

The room was simple but very comfortable with sloped ceilings and windows in the back of room as well as front. Included a microwave and frig, 15 min walk to town. Clean and quiet. I look forward to staying here again.

The room and furniture was a bit old (except the TV) but everything clean and working. Good service and fast wifi (which is unusual in American motels) There was some noise coming from A/C or refrigerator it seems but that did not prevent me from sleeping. A bit pricey given the worn down state of rhetoric room, but that was...

Agree with all positive comments. Clean and comfortable for the price. Indeed, thin walls. No pool! [At time of my visit, Aug 2016, TripAdvisor lists this property as having a pool. There is no pool.]

Had great time. Very clean. Owner very pleasant. Very shirt walk to downtown area and Cal Poly. Reasonable price which is good because SLO has very high bed tax. Has maps and write behind little store for all your items you may have forgot.
