This great little boutique hotel in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo was just perfect for a weekend in town. The rooms are clean and comfortable and loved having breakfast and dinner and drinks on the private deck above the bistro, fireside. Couldn't have been more perfect for a couple visiting kids at CalPoly!

The Granada Hotel & Bistro is 5 stars in every category. The Bistro serves the best food and drinks in town and the rooms are fabulous. Ask for Will when booking your reservations. Check out the ArtBar as well.

I had heard from a few friends that this is a great spot. All staff members were great! Bistro to front desk! Front desk, bistro (in room dining) was outstanding. I work for a luxury hotel resort and the room and service matched ours. Quick check in, glass of wine, very friendly and knowledgable staff and the little private room... More

Perfect in every way! Staff. Location. Bistro. Value. I would definitely book this place again for my next trip to San Luis Obispo. The proximity to local shops, restaurants, winery(s), yet not too busy. You can jump on Hwy 101 and go north to Paso Robles, south to Pismo (or a little further to Santa Maria), head towards Avilla Beach... More

Living in SLO County, we are afforded world class accomadations and food...the Granada holds it own and much more. We spent several nights in the studio room on the top floor, while small in size as so the rooms are, it is very comfortable. The iron window frames and hardware show the attention to detail, the original brick, beautiful wood... More

Love everything about this place. The architectural design, attention to detail, and service are impeccable. The restaurant is amazing and the cuisine and wine list are among the best I've experienced in California.

This place is so charming. It has old world charm and up to date amenities. The shower was a steam shower! My husband and I were going to eat dinner out but our room was so amazing that we had dinner by room service from the Bistro.

This is a wonderful boutique hotel located in the charming town of San Luis Obispo. Cozy, updated and pleasantly decorated rooms. This is a special place in our beloved alma mater college town! We regret that we did not take advantage of the outdoor seating area upstairs or the Bistro. We will next time!

We stayed at the Hotel Granada for my husbands birthday, and had his birthday dinner in the Bistro. First the good: the Bistro was delicious - both of our meals were fantastic, although perhaps a bit pricey. On to the bad: the hotel. Our stay started bad and now continues on into almost hilariously comically awful. I booked this hotel... More
