From the moment we arrived to the moment we left Granada Inn had stolen my heart. Upon arrival we were given a complimentary glass of Rose. Front desk service was extremely friendly and very helpful with luggage and directing us to our room. The walk to our room was lovely, the hotel has a luxury/quaintness to it which I loved.... More

The staff were friendly and welcoming and the hotel has been restored to a high standard. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone that is pkanning a West Coast... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the Granada Hotel during the Cal Poly Graduation weekend. Everything was top notch. The upstairs patio really added to the living space and festive atmosphere of the occasion. It was great to be able to walk to all the downtown restaurants and shops. We'll be back!

I appreciate this hotel because I liked the convience of the location and the fact that it felt more upscale, in comparison to other hotels in San Luis Obispo. The outdoor terrace was comfortable and quite a treat. The rooms are VERY small and the shower is basically in your room. So, if you are someone who is modest or... More

If you are looking for something a bit more edgy, then this is the place. The hotel itself is small and very well decorated (think brick walls, iron furnishings). The bistro itself was also pretty cool and a nice place to get a cocktail and a bite to eat. The rooms were a bit small (ala new york city) but... More

Top notch location, top notch service, luxurious feel. High design was employed for a full remodel while still retaining original charm. Small and intimate rooms, great for a cozy getaway with someone special... leave the kids at home. Conveniently located halfway between San Francisco and LA. Not cheap, but worth it. Try it, you'll like it.

Lovely boutique hotel nestled in downtown San Luis Obispo.. Personal and attentive service from Check in to the bistro and bar. We were there for part work and play. The ambiance and history of hotel made our stay very relaxing.

we stayed in room 1 in the front of the hotel. The room was nice but small for $550 but ok for the location. They started power washing across the street after midnight and the noise and vibration continued until after 4:00 am. When we checked out we were told others had complained before. it ruined a otherwise positive stay,... More

My travelling companion and I spent one night, June 27th, at The Granada in San Luis Obispo ("S.L.O." or "slow" to the locals) and it did not disappoint! I'm told it is the only good hotel right in the heart of downtown, as opposed to the many on the outskirts, and its central location makes everything downtown an easy walk... More

Beautiful hotel. Feel I was seriously over charged for a hotel in a small college town. Too much noise and feel over charged. When you pay these kind of prices, I expect Internet and parking for free. This is not San Francisco or New York.
