They offer nice chocolate chip cookies and self-serve tea/coffee in the lobby all of the time, and the self-serve breakfast the next morning was definitely adequate. Our room...

This was a very a nice hotel. They were extremely accomadating considering we called the day before and needed 20 plus rooms since our girls had a CIF game in Arroyo Grande. The beds and and the rooms were very comfortable. The only thing that I could complain about was the breakfast was not very good.

We have stayed here several times over the past few years on our way back to Oregon from Arizona. We have two small dogs so pet friendly is a must. The rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly and welcoming. We will of course be back.

I was very pleased with this hotel. VERY clean and beds were extremely comfortable. The bathrooms were large with plenty of counter space. LOVED the vanity for a woman's makeup/hair use. The maid staff were very nice...Gloria was a sweet lady. Front desk was very helpful. I would stay here again!
