“Nice place to stay, when doing the drive from San Francisco to L.A”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We arrived late, after a long drive. The reception staff were very friendly. It was happy hour, so enjoyed a free wine & the kids free softdrinks . We decided to try their dinner choices. The family had steak sandwiches & hot dogs. All Ok, and the prices were cheap. Decided to eat outdoor in casual dining area . It was very relaxing.
We the one room, two double beds & pull out sofa end in the small livingroom. Very comfortable beds .
The only let down to the stay, was my jacket being stollen.
Had left it when dining outside & realised in the morning.
So popped down to reception , thinking it would be there.
They checked and there was no jacket. I was so disappointed to think either a staff member or guest staying had decided to take it.
So that was the only let down to an otherwise enjoyable stay

Room Tip: We had one room, with two double beds & sofa bed. Enough room for a family of four.

Thank you for providing a review of our hotel on Tripadvisor. Like you, many of our guests like to stop here and visit when traveling to and from LA to San Francisco. I enjoyed hearing that you and your family decide to stay and enjoy the BBQ we provide in our patio/pool area. Many of our guests tell us what a great value it is for them and their families. I particularly liked hearing that you were able to relax and enjoy your time here. I was sorry to read about your jacket. All our associates are trained to take any items left by our guests to lost and found. Based on our customer responses to lost and found items it looks like all the associate are doing their part in turning items in when they find them.

We hope that you are able to see us again the next time you are able to visit SLO.
Thank you,

We had no idea this place would be so great. The suite was clean, roomy, comfortable, and quiet. The grounds are very well-maintained by an excellent staff. Everyone was friendly, helpful, and competent. The extra amenities were the most amazing part. The complimentary hot breakfast, the complimentary beer and wine happy hour, and the cheap evening BBQ were all very social and lively, giving the place the feel of a resort. The pool, while small, was immaculately clean with nice lounge furniture, and even an immersible handicap seat, something I'd never seen before. They also had free DVD's to borrow and a complimentary shuttle, not to mention the coffee and cookies in the lobby. Yes, the place is a little dated, but they more than make up for that.

Room Tip: Top (third) floor. Units enclose two courtyards, one with the pool, the other a fountain (quieter).

This was my first time staying at a Quality Suites hotel ever. The room rate was great and the staff was very friendly. I thought that the hotel was nice for the hotel class. It was nice to have two rooms and breakfast and internet included in the room rate, The hotel could use a little updating.

This hotel was great for the price. Very nice clean room with a separate living room area and bedroom. The pool area is really nice with a hot tub and fire pits. They have a barbeque in the evenings, the standard manager's reception, and a good selection for breakfast in the morning. I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel and I would definitely recommend it.

We were traveling from Vegas to San Fransisco and had a one night stop here. I have to say we wanted to stay longer as this hotel has great charm and it was good value for money. Room was very large with seperate living area. We had free drinks with our barbeque which cost $7. Staff were lovely and we had a great night on the town. Hope we can return again some day.

Loved the Quality Suites! The suites are good size and come with all the amenities. The place itself shows a lot of character - with a heated swimming pool and fire places around the pool surrounded by a lovely seating area. Staff is polite and helpful and the morning breakfast pretty functional with hot food choices compared to many other similar motels that offer next to nothign with their cold breakfast choices!

Highly recommend this motel for a day or two stop over in this neat little town.

Our reasonably priced and well-located roomy double included a balcony, flat screen TV, large drawers & coat closet. The suite sitting room provided a long L shaped couch, coffee table, DVD player, micro, refrig., sink, 2nd flat screen, attractive wood table with chairs, and plenty of move around room. Lighting, colors and artwork are bright and inviting. Pluses include: free wireless Internet, free parking, very comfortable beds, free wine in the evening, BBQ sandwiches available for reasonable price with seating by pool, and a friendly desk staff.
The bathroom is adequate with outside sink, and my only complaint is the annoying slider door without sufficient handle making bathroom entry and exit difficult. I would not hesitate staying there again.

Room Tip: We were on top floor overlooking pool. This could be noisy on summer nights with poolside dining.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and posting it on tripadvisor. It was nice just to see that you found our hotel to be reasonably priced and well located. We appreciate the description you gave of the amenities we provide our guests. We liked hearing your thoughts on the handle for the pocket door. We will look into other door handle options that would work better for our guests.

We hope to see you again the next time you are in SLO.
