For a reasonable price, this hotel offers high level services. There is a swimming pool and a bathtub in every room, that are spacious. Only negative aspect: the breakfast is Served on disposable cutlery only. Bad for the environment. Located close to the highway and less than 2 miles from downtown.

Hello Epicure_en_balade I'm pleased you took the time to review Hotel online! It sounds like you used our amenities and I find that to be pleasing.

We stayed for the night after driving for hours. The guy at the front desk was SUPER nice and helpful. Free parking. The room was clean and very comfortable with tv and air conditioner. Breakfast was included and was very decent. Overall a very nice hotel and would stay here again.

Great, Best Best Western we have stayed at. Every thing we wanted was close by. Had fun at the farmers market. Great food. Shopped for fruit and vegetables. Nice shopping mall across the street and restaurant next door.

Had a nice, convenient stay for the family of four. Decent enough breakfast, too, with waffles, cereal, and packaged oatmeal. Essentially, we at and slept here, and would do it again, esp. if we were visiting Cal Poly.

We stopped here for the night after traveling all day. The hotel is centrally located and lovely. Chase at the front desk was wonderful and very helpful. He suggested a great place to eat downtown which was Gusieppe Palazzo and it was wonderful. Plus, it allowed us the opportunity to explore the down town. We would stay here again!

Travelling with my husband and our three kids (aged 7-10). The hotel itself is by a busy road and opposite a big retail park. Conveniently situated for the main highway but quite a functional building. We had asked for interconnecting rooms (which they don't have) but were given two rooms adjacent to each other.

The whole family (even our 2 dogs) came along to our daughter's student life orientation at Cal Poly, and stayed here. It's very convenient (about 4 miles from the campus); clean facility; good breakfast selection; walking distance to a good number of restaurants around the area; and close to Pismo and Avila beach. We'll be back again and stay here.
