About
Description
Located in downtown San Luis Obispo's historic core and the heart of California’s Central Coast, Garden Street Inn offers old-world hospitality with new-century passion. Locals call it SLO; offering More excellent shopping, first-class restaurants, wine-tasting, art galleries and museums. Surrounded by the natural beauty of the rolling hills and coastal valleys, SLO lies just a short drive from Avila Beach, Morro Bay, and Pismo Beach. Golf, tennis, biking, and hiking opportunities abound. SLO hosts a myriad of local tourist attractions, including world renowned vineyards and wineries, California missions, iconic museums, and breathtaking beaches. Classic decor reflects Victorian charm in our uniquely boutique hotel - many with fireplaces and private decks. Grab a book from the well-stocked Goldtree Library, or sip your morning coffee on our spacious outdoor communal deck. Meet the chef in preparation of a delicious breakfast each morning which is served in the McCaffrey Morning Room. Less
