Decent room, small but good complimentary breakfast, good value for the money. Basic two story motel on the main hotel/motel row in San Luis Obispo. Property has wife and good tv selection. Staff attentive to your needs.

My husband and I attended Cal Poly many years ago-- so we have stayed in plenty of places in SLO over the years when we visit, attend functions, or are just passing through. Since all our favorite places were full the day we needed to stay in SLO, we hesitantly reserved a room at the Inn. We were most pleased... More

I stayed at the Inn during my son's college parent weekend. It was very convenient, clean, and accommodating. They let me have a late checkout, so that I could spend more time with my son. It is close to the college and walking distance from downtown. Good experience.

We stayed at the Inn at San Luis Obispo while visiting our son at Cal Poly. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was. It was updated and clean. The free continental breakfast was good and the service was friendly. We will definitely stay here again.

Visited this hotel last year and am reviewing again due to poor remodeling vs. high prices. This is an older hotel that was remodeled to keep up with the newer/nicer hotels in the area. They added crown moulding to the rooms, repainted them, brought in new beds and sheets. Unfortunately, the bathrooms are still small and old. The shower floor... More

Nice room with flat screen tv, microwave, mini fridge, very nice toiletries, convenient to Cal Poly and just before entrance to freeway. Quiet when I was there except I could hear when someone upstairs dropped anything. Pleasant staff and a more than expected "continental" breakfast. They had the usual plus waffles and french toast, and boiled eggs were already peeled;... More

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.
