As someone who travels more than 10 times a month, due to business reasons; University Inn is my new go-to. I have stayed at numerous hotels in San Luis Obispo, but this one is definitely in the top 3 for me. The staff is beyond great and friendly, the breakfast is good, the rooms are excellent, and the wifi is very fast. Even though there are many things to do in town, it is very quiet; which is amazing for business trips.

Husband stayed in hotel for two weeks with a team. First room seemed to be okay. Second room was infested with bedbugs. Now we realize that the bags all the mattresses are in are actually "casements," which are used when you have a bedbug infestation but you don't want to buy a new mattress. Unfortunately, husband came home between first stay and second stay, so we are waiting to see if he brought little friends into the house and have to go through our own in-home infestation. Owner was a nice guy, but no amount of niceness will compensate the possibility of his lack of maintenance possibly infecting my home with bedbugs. AVOID! Particularly room 211.

The room was clean, but shabby. We had a hard time getting the door to open. We would put the key up to it and it wouldn't beep and the light would turn green, but the door wouldn't unlock. Had to put your shoulder into it. Air conditioner was noisy. Parking lot is very narrow. Breakfast was cereal and bagels. It was quiet though and the bed was comfy. It was close to downtown and the freeway, so it was convenient.
