“Warm and friendly with terrific breakfasts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2011

Terrie the B&B Manager made our stay special with her friendly personality and her terrific breakfasts. The B&B is charming, we like the creek that runs beside it and the warm cozy fireplaces.
We were here with friends celebrating our husbands birthdays which happen to be on the same day. She went out of her way to make sure our experience was memorable. Terrie surprised our husbands with party hats and birthday cards on thier birthdays. We will come back again with family and friends.

My husband and I (and our dog) spent New Year's Eve at the Heritage Inn and all of our expectations were exceeded. We wanted a quiet, away from the bar-scene kind of New Years Eve. The gracious innkeeper and hostess, Terri gave us a warm welcome that included local info, a map and suggestions on where to go and to eat. Our room was the Mountain View; small but clean with private bathroom and a great view with a balcony overlooking the rushing creek. Outside, stairs lead to a lovely and fairly large creek perfect for the dog or sitting on the chairs to relax. Terri set up reservations for us (and others) to have dinner at the Spyglass Inn and attend a comedy show. After, she hosted a New Years Eve reception with sparkling wine, plenty of food and great conversation with local friends and out-of-town guests. I believe she may be doing something for Valentine's day as well.
Dog-friendly and no extra fee, but not allowed in dining or common area as to be expected. Breakfast the following morning was nice; great selection of hot/cold cereals, toast, yogurt, juices, a homemade veggie frittata, bacon...coffee, tea, etc.
Everything and more than you would expect from a Bed and Breakfast. It's places like this that keep us going to B&B's.

I greatly enjoyed staying at the Heritage Inn. Susanne, the hostess, was friendly and welcoming. She shared many tips with us regarding restaurants in downtown SLO (about a 10-minute drive from the Inn), hiking trails, etc. Our room was cozy and warm (this being the "winter" season, warmth matters).

The Heritage Inn is simply the best place to stay in San Luis Obispo.

Susanne the owner has a special talent for making you feel so welcome and relaxed as soon as you step onto the porch (with rocking chair and resident cat to greet you). Nothing is too much trouble to her and she makes sure your every need is catered for.

The Heritage Inn is the most comfortable place we stayed in during our 2 week trip in America and we stayed in several expensive 4* hotels.

The Inn is extremely clean and comfortable. The walls are littered with interesting quirky information about the Inn. Their are magazines and books and comfortable sofa's to rest on.
The rooms are all styled differently and the little touches make it all very so very special....the chocolates on the pillows, the fresh roses in the bedrooms, the smell from the big displays of lillies in most of the rooms downstairs, the warm cookies when you return from a night out, the old fashioned comfortable beds (which gave us the best nights sleep in over a week) the complimentary glass of wine drunk whilst sitting by the creekside at the back of the Inn, the wonderful breakfast of home made quiche (which we had smelt cooking when we woke up), the jar of honey provided to help my daughters cough, the recommendation and booking of a restaurant for us on the night of our arrival.

We arrived feeling somewhat jaded and a bit frazzled and left feeling totally relaxed and thoroughly spoilt. I cannot recommend The Heritage Inn enough, it's a wonderful , special place to stay at a very reasonable price.

I would recommend this B&B for a stay in the San Luis area. My husband and I booked a room 2 days out for a last minute stay and it was perfect! The owner was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was good and the amenities were what we needed.

We've stayed here previously, but the current owner brings a very special charm and warmth to hosting her guests. Everything about our stay was top rate. We especially enjoy staying at a B & B where the owner is present. It's so much more personal!

As one other review says; staying at this inn really is like visiting your favourite relative / friend , who just happens to be an awesome cook, knowledgeable about the area, helpful and yet not pushy.. The owner leaves you feeling like nothing is too much trouble. She recommended restaurants to us, a fantastic local sandwich shop, an amazing beach, a local outlet centre and knew just about everything going on around town. Free internet was much appreciated - something not available everywhere we have stayed.. Our room was Mountainview and lived. up to its name- we left the doors to the balcony open in the evening for the sunset. The Inn is conveniently placed to walk the 6 blocks or so into town and we did this several times - safe even at night. We cannot recommend the hospitality or facilities of Heritage Inn enough. and judging by other happy looking fellow guests we are not alone.
