“Decent place for an overnight stay”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

There isn't much to choose from in the Hollister area. This is "passing through" kind of place. Though it had new carpet and paint in our room, it wasn't as clean as I would like and some of the details weren't quite up to snuff. For example, the bed skirting was in disarray, a portion of the bedframe was unprotected and stuck out (and of course I bumped my shin on it), and the bathroom door wouldn't stay open. The road outside the room was noisy. The air conditioner did put out a lot of cold air! The buffet was pretty good (breads, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal, etc.,) though the coffee was lousy. The staff was fine. All in all, it's an ok place to stay for one night on a road trip.

Quiet/friendly and efficient staff/clean and tasteful rooms. Breakfast is pretty basic. If I could fault the place for anything, possibly better plugs in the bath tub. But as nice as the staff was, I am sure this would be taken care of pretty quick. There are very few decent places to stay in Hollister. To make it perfect I would lower the price by $20 and then this place would be perfect value

Very clean and comfortable. Only one thing that I could complain about would be that it is located between two busy roadways. The bed was very nice, not one of those hard hotel type of matress's. There were lots of pillow which did the trick.

The manager and his staff were very nice and welcoming. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The bed wasn't as comfortable as I am used to - but I am a bit picky. Breakfast had much more than I expected. Bacon, eggs, yogurt, cereals, pastries, fruit... Coffee was nice. The place seems to be in the middle of nowhere, but a short drive down the street puts you near some nice places to eat and a shopping center. We will definately be back the next time we are in town!

When it comes to Hollister, CA, there just aren't many options for hotels. The San Benito Inn is decent choice between overpriced, kitchy lodging and flea-bag motels. However, the service is less than friendly or professional. On my last stay, the rooms had been recently "cleaned," where in they painted all the wood furniture with a brown coating. Well, it wasn't dry and my work shirt became stained with varnish. While they did comp me the cost of the shirt, it was just one more reason why staying here is a painful necessity. If you can help it, stay in another city.

Stayed here for one night in order to make an 08:00 appointment at a motorcycle seat company. The room 223 on the second floor was given to me even though I asked for a ground floor room. Who ever installed the toilet was an ametuer plumber then they went and installed a toilet paper holder so when you attempt to sit down your right side hits the TP holder. There is room to move the toilet closer towards the tub as well. So lame!!!!
