San Luis Inn & Suites

Booked over the phone late at night while we were on the road, really tired with no cancellation fee attached. Three couples ahead of us in line all said the same thing "booked on-line & nowhere else to stay". Mold all over the bathroom, stained carpets, stained walls, holes in the blankets, pealing paint, etc... Duct tape holding the bed together and EVERY piece of furniture was somehow bent or broken. Even the light fixtures were tweaked and mismatched, every-part of this place is worn-out. Hallways reeked of cigarets. Looks like a rent by the hour dive on TV. Itchy sheets and lousy cheapskate breakfast. I'd guess Pelican Bay Prison is a nicer place to stay

Close to freeway, clean pool, easy pleasant walk into town. Great downtown with excellent food - we suggest you buy some for breakfast as the Continental breakfast is either OJ or coffee + 1/4 of a muffin! A bit run down and tatty, but clean and comfortable. No plug for bath, obviously showers are intended. No kettle or courtesy tea/coffee, fridge & microwave, but no cutlery or crockery...Not at all pleased to be woken at 0450 hrs by the owner filling up 3 chilly bins with ice, using a metal frying pan for the biggest noise effect, from the communal ice machine 5 yards away from our door.when asked to stop, he continued 3 minutes after I had returned to bed.

Checked in late evening after searching for a hotel room. Have to agree that this place needs a little love, but the staff were very helpful and the rooms were clean. Its not the Ritz but then i didnt pay the price for the Ritz.
If I needed an inexpensive clean room then i would definitely stay here again.
Good location, close to restaurants and downtown.

First of all this place is just a motel. There are no suites, it's a dirty, nasty motel. There was a lot of activity at night, so I suspect people stay for a few hours...if you know what I mean. We stayed here because it was close to my daughter's college. It's not worth the price. It is terrible!

when we walked into the room the smell was so bad I wanted to vomit, I booked this room because it looked so nice from the outside (THE POOL),I didn't read the reviews because we made reservation to take the train and I wanted to stay over night so I needed to get a room asap. the toilet didn't work,no tub,didn't look clean! because I booked online I couldn't get my money back,WE DID NOT STAY THERE !!!!!!!!!!

We stayed in this hotel because it was the cheapest in the area. Plus the hotel gave us a discounted rate (we haggled for the discount with the owner). This is a very old, tired, run down motel. It desperately needs refurbishing! Old beds, bedding, towels (we decided to use our own), carpet, walls, the list is long. We saw the room before we paid for it so it wasn't a surprise to us! Like i said, we picked this place because of the cheap rate. Free wifi included and grab & go breakfast, which was a disgrace (old quartered muffins and watery tepid coffee). Parking is outside directly outside of the motel.
