Modern, clean room with a comfy bed. Great outdoor pool and easy parking. Short walk into the main town where there are plenty of lovely places to eat and cool bars. We would recommend dinner at Novo and drinks at the SLO Brewing Company!

Affordable price, large clean room with updated bathroom, and one of the best continental breakfasts we've seen in a very long time (even had fresh hard boiled eggs and French toast!). The staff was very accommodating considering it was a last minute booking and we arrived at around 9pm. We will definitely stay there again!

We expected something a bit special, considering the $250 price--but the Inn was lacking in some important respects. No charm. The mattress felt old, the pillows were too fat for comfortable sleeping. The TV remote worked erratically, and the thermostat display didn't work properly. The night light flashed erratically. On the positive side, the pool looked really nice.

Nice clean room. Just enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We love that the hot tub is sectioned off and not visible to all. The pool is a very nice size too. Bathroom is a bit small but love that there is a mini fridge and microwave in the room. Currently enjoying my stay. Hopefully continental breakfast is good.

This is a motel so don't expect hotel amenities . That being said the rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Recommend staying on second floor as it sounds like foot traffic would be heard below. We stayed one night on our way home from camping in Big Sur. They have a pool and jacuzzi which was a nice bonus. Breakfast... More

Upon entering the room, I was glad that they had turned the air cinditioning on. It was very refreshing. The room was very clean, updated and spacious. Housekeeping was exellent. Breakfast was good, consisted of waffles, boiled eggs, pastries and cereals. Lobby was open in the evening for hot cocoa. The pool area was also spacious and updated. Will definitely... More

We stayed at this Inn so we could visit the college campus SLO. When we checked in the office staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and smelled fresh like they just cleaned it. The breakfast they offered in the morning was just enough, cereal, waffles, french toast, fruit, muffins etc... I am a coffee snob... More

This was a good deal at $80 on a Thursday in mid May for the really fun market. It was our best motel in SLO in several. We were given a room upgrade upon arrival by the friendly girl on reception which was nice. There is a pool and spa at the rear but it was too cold to try... More

Clean, well equipped quiet motel about 20 minutes walk from downtown, although there are plenty of eating places nearby. Very friendly staff, good sized swimming pool and spa in a very well looked-after area at the back of the property. A good continental breakfast was served. Nice location with hills visible and we even saw a hummingbird while in the... More
