Don’t mind a bit dated but do mind beds not looking freshly made up and hair on the pillows and in the bathroom sink. Room was not very clean..Safety lock was falling off the door. Corridors and stairwell were very worn and not very clean.

The Rose Garden Inn in California’s San Luis Obispo is both delightfully cheap and very cheerful. We spent a good night’s rest here and parking, WiFi and a small breakfast was thrown in at well under U.K. £60.
