“Excellent hotel, fantastic rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for one night on a road trip and were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. The hotel was clean and comfortable with friendly, helpful staff. The rooms were amazing, you'd have to pay triple the price in the UK to get a similar standard of room. The rooms were well equipped and clean, the bed was amazingly comfortable and breakfast was lovely. The reception gave us a takeaway menu so we could order food in which was superb with lots of choice. My only regret is that we only got to stay for one night. Highly recommend to anyone....fabulous experience.

This is a new hotel , it is located near the freeway , easy in and out, the room that I had was spacious, I did not have the morning breakfast since I left early. One nice option was that I could open the windows by about 3 inches for fresh air. I was staying in the front of the hotel facing the freeway and sound proofing was excellent. Within 1 mile you will find restaurants, Target and Costco..etc...

This was the first time my wife and I were able to use our points. That was a pleasant bonus to an exceptional stay. Of the many Hamptons we have stayed at, this one was outstanding. Something we noticed almost immediately was the attentiveness and cleanliness of the facility in all areas--outside, lobby, breakfast area, and especially the rooms. Staff was always present, but discreet. The "fresh sheet" post-it notes were awesome. Staff on the telephone for a minor special request, and in person, were terrific and very professional. This was clearly not an "under-staffed" burnt-out group. I observed an obviously cranky traveler spoiling for a battle over a simple matter which was resolved rapidly and had the appearance of going far beyond normal duties to please this patron. I believe the expression is "love-bombed". I felt very comfortable and plan on many returns at this San Luis Obispo facility.

The quality of the breakfast was far below the quality we have come to expect from Hampton Inn. Scrambled eggs we like rubber; bacon like nothing I've ever tasted nor ever want to again; stale bagels; etc.

I highly recommend Hampton Inn and Suites for anyone looking for a great hotel within the San Luis Obispo area. The staff is very helpful, the breakfast is great, rooms extremely clean, and the sheets feel wonderful after a long day of adventures.

This hotel could not have been more convenient for us. It is right off the main freeway from Santa Barbara area.
Hotel is nice and clean with good pool area. It is exactly what you would expect from a Hampton Inn. It did not disappoint.

Be sure to visit the Avila farm nearby. The kids had a good time and there are tasty treats for all.

We attended the Roll Out the Barrels Wine Tasting in San Luis Obispo and stayed at the Hampton Inn. We were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were quite nice, and the complimentary breakfast was much more than we expected.
