“Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

We loved our stay here. Everything was clean, modern, and spacious. The complimentary breakfast included a egg cook, so you could get whatever you wanted. We like the two patios, one with the pool and the other called the 'quiet patio' that had a nice fountain. And it is nicely located only a mile from all the fun places downtown and a mile or so from Poly.

We both highly recommend the Quality Suites. They have all the charm of their nearby competitors at a fraction of the price. Definitely a 'best value'!

Don't get me wrong, this is a good hotel with many perks. I like their happy-hour, their breakfast, but when it comes to checking special requests, and more importantly, correcting their mistakes, this hotel is sub-par. I was traveling with my elderly parents so we requested a quiet room. So where did they put us? - right under a staircase close to the laundry unit which was blowing out steam the whole time. Basically I think we got one of the worst rooms in the entire complex. And if the manager is reading this, go back to March 3, 2012 and you will recall our front desk conversations.

My family travels to San Luis Obispo a couple of times of year. This is a great choice, especially for families who want some extra space. Bedroom and seperate living area. Great hot breakfast and complimentary DVD rentals. Convenient location and many extra conveniences provided by hotel. Good choice.

Our family of five--two adults and three kids ages 6 to 8--stayed here for four nights Thanksgiving week. It was a terrific deal for the price. The suite is not huge, but hey, its a suite, with two double beds, a sofa bed, and even another small sofa big enough for one of our kids to sleep on. The breakfasts are great (I loved the fact that I could get egg whites and veggies, or non-fat milk and cereal), and you can't beat the nightly barbecue. We fed our family of five on hotdogs, chicken sandwich, and garden burger for $13 (plus free drinks and cookies every night). Lots of nice outdoor tables and chairs with heaters and fires to relax in the evening The wireless works great (you only need to resign in every seven days), there's an onsite coin laundry, there's a fitness room, and free DVD checkout (we just watched Rapunzel with the kids). Oh, and did I say two TVs in the suite? The pool and hot tub are nice too. This is not a luxury hotel, but we found it very family friendly and enjoyable, and we'll definitely stay here again if we come to San Luis Obispo.

Convenient location. Simple and comfortable accommodations. The hotel has a pleasant and serene ambiance. No bellman to help with the luggage. Suite: large, comfortable, clean, very quiet. Bathroom: ok. Breakfast: cooked-to-order, good options (friendly guys). The hotel has a charming and peaceful central patio (Spanish style), excellent for relaxing, especially at night. Staff: polite. I recommend this hotel for families with kids.

A nice hotel,at first glance,freindly welcome stuff,free beer ,wine and soft drinkes at evening in the bar,nice young atmosphere but...small small room,we were 2 adults and 3 children,too croweded in one of their family rooms,very small bath and inside same room the w.c.,beds were not comfortable at all,and very very poor breakfast,so in total-you can consider to stay elsewhere if the room apperance,beds and breakfast are important to you!!!

Thank you for posting a review of our hotel on Tripadvisor. I have a large family as well and I know that traveling with everyone poses some challenges. I have found that our suites worked better for our trips than a conventional hotel room. We do our best to accommodate all our guests. I apologize that you felt crowded when you stayed with us.

We were spending the weekend in San Luis Obispo. We took the train from Santa Barbara to San Luis Obispo. Which I highly recommend because the train goes along the coast. The hotel has a free shuttle bus that picks you up a the train station. The staff at the hotel were very welcoming and helpful. Our king bed suite had a living room and then separate bedroom with a bathroom. Very clean and comfortable. There is a manager's happy hour in the afternoon. There were a nice choice of beers and wine with some finger food. Even though you can walk to downtown in 15 minutes, we need to get downtown sooner, so the free hotel shuttle bus took us where we needed to go. We walked back to the hotel later in the evening and felt very safe. The next morning we had the made to order breakfast and it was pretty good....eggs, bacon & toast, coffee. There is juice, fruit & pastries also. We checked out of our room and had a few hours before taking the train back to Santa Barbara. The staff were so pleasant about storing our luggage. We had a great afternoon downtown and then took the free hotel shuttle back to the train station. This hotel offers the free shuttle bus, manager's happy hour, and breakfast. Along with a happy friendly staff certainly makes a lovely stay at the Quality Suites.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of our hotel on Tripadvisor. It was great to see that you came by train. We appreciate the guests that travel to our hotel by train because we feel it is a great way to visit SLO. By taking the train and using our shuttle service you save on the expense and carbon foot print of driving a car. We would like to see more of our guest visit by train. We hope that your review inspires them to give the train a try.
