SLO Area Hotel - Quiet and New

I'll be in SLO on a regular basis throughout the year, maybe once or twice a month. I've been paying around $135 - $150 a night, which is fine, but I haven't been all that happy. The Cliffs is a nice place, but the room I got had a recurring noise that sounded like someone moving their heel on the bathtub; it's a two-toned eeking sound that happened from time to time (for example from 5:15 AM to 6:15 AM one morning and on some regular basis at night). No one could tell me what it was, and it's not worth changing rooms when you don't know the origin.

I stayed at the Embassy Suites, but it's an older hotel. The hallway carpet was fraying and noticeably dirty. I also didn't like the whole atrium thing because you can still hear the noise from people talking or glasses clinking. I also heard a humming white noise throughout the night, but at least that one wasn't annoying like the "tub rubbing" one mentioned earlier.

What's the newest hotel in the area? Is there one that's known to be quieter, more insulated than the others? Several exits north or south of the Avila Beach exit is fine. Thanks.

The Courtyard by Marriott is the newest hotel in SLO. It's located off Highway 101 & Los Osos Valley Road:

San Luis Creek Lodge is, IMO, the finest place to stay in/around SLO. The rooms are large, immaculate, and very tastefully appointed -- more like suites than hotel rooms. Check it out at tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g33026-San_Luis_Obisp…

Although the TA site says $300+, you can usually get a room here with a little advance noteice for under $150.

A favorite local getaway for us is the Avila Village Inn. It is a newer facility along a nice walking trail. We really love the location and the fact that is a smaller, more quaint hotel. It is worth checking into, IMHO.
