“Perfect Hotel choice while visiting CAL Poly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2010

I chose this hotel based upon the reviews from Trip Advisor and was very pleased. We were on a one day visit to Cal Poly and this hotel suited our needs. Hotel staff were friendly but not too knowledgeable on local restaurants or if we could park a car a Cal Poly (parking is available for a $5 day fee). The hotel was about a 10 - 15 minute walk to the central part of town and I believe the hotel even offers shuttle service. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Included in the price - a full breakfast. I definitely would stay here again.

Thank you for your review and your acknowledgment about us being the Perfect Hotel while visiting Cal Poly. You are correct, a lot of our guest choose to make the 10 minute walk downtown. We do offer a shuttle downtown for those that would prefer a ride. We will work to improve our knowledge of local restaurants.

We returned to this hotel after staying here almost two years ago. The rooms are still very clean, with comfortable beds and nice pillows and blankets. The front desk and staff were quite friendly and helpful, and there are two computers in the lobby handy for checking email, printing, etc.

No complaints other than the miserable breakfast coffee (pretty undrinkable). This is a fairly pricey place, so I think they could upgrade the quality of the coffee!

We had our family reunion (25 people) at the Quality Suites. They gave us the space they use for breakfast which consisted of 3 good sized rooms that opened onto their patio area. They also gave us use of the pool and whirlpool. We brought our own food and were able to keep items warm in our slow cookers. Having stayed at this hotel before, I knew the staff was friendly, the rooms clean and well kept. We were very happy. We will use this space again. BTW we gave short notice and were still treated great.

I did not know where to stay in SLO. I felt that I ended up at the best place in the heart of the city. The people were friendly from the beginning to the end of my stay. The hotel offers all you need in a hotel and more. I felt welcome. They offer a lot that other hotels would charge you for. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

This hotel is one of the best I have stayed in. It would be a nice place even if they didn't do anything extra. It is in a nice area within easy walking distance of downtown San Luis Obispo. The rooms are nice and big with everything you need(microwave,refrig,hi-speed internet). What makes this place great is the extras they provide. First, they were kind enough to pick us up at the airport. The food in the breakfast area is the best I have ever seen at a hotel. In the courtyard in the evenings, they fire up the grill for you. Housekeeping was kind enough to clean the room later in the evening for those of us working nightshift(outage at Diablo Canyon). Just a fantastic place to stay. See you next time.

Great to hear that you got to enjoy many of our "extras". Many of our guest have mentioned that they like the fact that we are within walking distance to downtown. Nice to see that you were able to take advantage of that as well.

Thanks

On my recent stay on November 10 + 11/09, I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay, the accomadations were excellent, and the staff was super helpful.... I have stayed in 4-star hotels many times you all were just as nice as many of those.
The hotel was centrally located in the southern wine country. While in the area a must eat place is the Firestonestone Grille, downtown. (tri-tip steak sandwich is a Must)

Price was more than reasonable. Clean, comfortable & spacious rooms. Close to the 101, downtown San Luis Obispo and Cal Poly. Free beers or wine at the end of the day and free breakfast in the morning was a big plus. All the staff from the time we walked in to the time we left were friendly and helpful. Great bang for the buck. We will defintely be staying there again! Tim
