“An Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Annually, my husband and I visit our college friends in SLO and San Luis Creek Lodge is our hotel of choice. We prefer a boutique hotel such as San Luis Creek Lodge because of the well-appointed clean rooms, welcoming staff, good location and free breakfast that includes made to order eggs and waffles! We already have and will continue to recommend San Luis Creek Lodge to our friends!

My husband and I have stayed in this lovely hotel numerous times over the past 5 years while visiting our daughter who was attending Cal Poly. It has always been our first choice hotel in the area. The delicious breakfast, the super clean rooms, and friendly knowledgable staff were just a few of the reasons we preferred this hotel over others in the area. The rooms are spacious, the beds are extremely comfortable and the free wifi allowed my husband to work while my daughter and I shopped and explored the area. I would highly recommend San Luis Creek Lodge if you want a boutique hotel experience at a good price and in a great location.

My husband and 2 adult kids stayed at the Creek Lodge on our trip to California touring the coast from San Diego to San Francisco. It was a nice half-way point from the Hollywood area to San Francisco. The owner was super nice and very helpful with recommendations for dinner in the town. The facility was absolutely beautiful. The free movies and popcorn was a nice touch. The breakfast the next day was very good with a lot of variety, although my son wished that they offered bacon, as well as the sausage. It was by far our favorite lodging during our trip. We would definitely stay again if we had the opportunity!

Well thank you for your comments! We appreciate your feedback very much. San Luis Obispo is a very convenient stopping point to break up journeys up and down the coast. We try to offer suggestions about the area as there is so many great places to dine, visit and see. We are fortunate to be located in a wonderful area and we are happy to share that with you. I hope you come back in the future...one visit is not enough!

Have a great summer!

We just spent the nicest evening here. Our room, and that of our traveling companions were the most inviting, comfortable rooms of our trip. The decor invites relaxation. The whole Inn is sparkling clean. All of the staff were gracious and obviously like working in hospitality. The waffles and eggs we had for breakfast were made individually (not from a buffet). I wish we could have stayed longer, the Inn excuded relaxation. San Luis Obispo is a wonderful little town.

Room Tip: We had a room in the back building, but I don't think it would matter which building you were in...

We we originally going to stay for 1 night, but booked in again on our way back from Vegas. Our room was large, modern and very clean. The staff were very friendly, breakfast was excellent. We've been on the road for 9 months so have stayed in a lot of places - this hotel didn't disappoint on either of our stays.

We stayed here for two nights as part of our honeymoon and it was perfect. Our room was a kingsize with a fireplace. It was incredibly spacious, clean and relaxing. The rooms have quaint details; a huge four post bed, books, chairs with foot stools. The hotel is a 35 minute walk from downtown but there is a tram stop opposite if you don't fancy stretching your legs. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is standard but sets you up for the day. Well recommended and we would stop again!

our stay at the lodge may 15-17 was great, as it usually is. we have tried several places in SLO during our visits to see our son at CalPoly. san luis creek lodge is our favorite. the rooms are large and well appointed. and the breakfasts are yummy!

we also appreciated the extended check out we received on checkout day - my husband had a conference call that would have been difficult to participate in on the road.

Room Tip: we have stayed in 4 different rooms and they all have been great.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. So glad to have you back. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay so much, we know we have lots of great competition. We are a pretty good choice for Cal Poly parents as we are so close to the campus. We always try to be flexible with guests whenever we can so I'm glad your husband was able to get his business done in a comfortable setting.

Looking forward to seeing you next time!
