Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

It was clean enough but sure needs to be updated. People/staff were very nice. It's close to shops and restaurants within walking distance. We stayed there for a week before could move in to out new home, and we have two young kids. It was ok but I don't think I'd stay there again if I had a choice.

Stayed for 2 nights in room 3. This room is in poor shape, and from what I saw looking around the motel outdoor public area it is no better than room 3. This is an old motor inn motel with carports. From the street it may seem inviting but if one looks past the appearance of an old perhaps quaint...

Arriving by train for one night only, we found this motel more than satisfactory for price and location.. Our destinations were the train station and the mission,, both a longish walk away. The rooms were very clean, quiet enough, on a courtyard apart from the street. Downstairs rooms appeared to be doubles, upstairs singles. Owners were courteous and obliging. Décor,...

I have to say the owners of the motel are very nice and accommodating. They clearly care about the place. Price is reasonable as other folks note. It is close to some coffee places. Splash Cafe is right down the street. Room was clean and the maid service was done right. My room heater wall unit was not working. A...

A small inn close to downtown. No frills. Excellent coffee and breakfast options are just a short walk away. Well maintained property provides the basics for a comfortable stay. Free parking on site but it can be a little difficult to maneuver around longer vehicles.

This is a VERY inexpensive hotel for where it is located, less than half the price of my usual favorite that was fully booked. It is a little bit funky, but overall a good value for what is provided. My room was roomy, clean, and had everything I needed for a quick stay while moving my daughter in at Cal...

We were a group of 15 family members traveling around California. SLO was just an overnight stay. The hotel is going to be going through some remodeling. It's a quaint place, well-loved but it's the owners that made me write such a positive review. We had a problem with one of the rooms and they couldn't have been nicer in...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Less than 10 minute walk to main part of downtown, closer than other hotels. Parking in front of your room. Free Wifi and good cable, air conditioning and heating. While there is no breakfast, there are 3 cafes right across the street. Trolley stop is a minute walk away. Rooms are small and old, but...

At check in we met Virash who was very nice and kind. He even switched our room from top floor to bottom so we don’t have to climb steps. PRO: Clean, Good and easy parking, close to midtown (5min walk), close to Morro Rock (30 min drive) CON: Thin walls, sound of the train in the morning, old TV (not...
