Good, clean, safe room. Check-in measured up to my expectation - no frills, no nonsense

We stayed the afternoon by the pool which is a nice pool with an ice vending machine nearby. Regular breakfast and good rooms. Nothing out of the ordinary on the negative and positive side. Just a good hotel.

This is a perfectly nice place to stay, nothing fancy but room was clean and comfortable and the staff very nice. i was on a trip for work and had an early morning appt. It was very quiet, i got a great night sleep and was glad to have the complimentary breakfast in the morning! The pool looked great (my room looked out on the courtyard) sadly it was a little too chilly to brave the water. maybe next time!

The hotel was nothing out of the ordinary but was a good value for a nice clean hotel room. I would recommend this hotel to anyone unless you were looking for a five-star experience. The location is good enough that you can easily get around and the staff was very helpful in meeting our requests.

We had a good night's stay. It's a convenient location with a basic, clean room. Found the pillows to be very comfortable. Suggestion for the hotel - it would be nice to have bottled water available in the room (or at least stock the vending machines - front desk staff had to let me into the pool area after hours to get it, as that was the only vending machine on the property that stocked it).

When we arrived at 2 PM, we could get our room immediately; unfortunately, the hotel had not granted my wish for a ground floor room which led to dragging suitcases onto two stairs, in a wing where floors did not have carpet and the walls were the bricks they built the place with.
Not too happy with that, to me that is lack of service (where they DID confirm having received my email about it).

The room was OK, a little small,but we had what we needed.
Breakfast was from 6 untill 9 PM and we were warned not to wait until 9 pm because of an overcrowded breakfastroom.
It was already overcrowded at 8PM, breakfast itself was OK.
Free wifi, good parking conditions, a nice shopping mall opposite the hotel made us grade the hotel as "average".

I recently finished a long road trip across all of California. We stopped in San Luis Obispo for one night to break up the drive from Palo Alto to L.A. This hotel was a pleasant stay, and a good price considering most places in SLO are incredibly expensive.

Pros - Very nice service at the front desk even though we arrived pretty late. He answered our questions and was very friendly.
- We got a room with one king bed and it was muuuch larger than I had expected! Very spacious, with a big desk and chair on one side, and a nice lounger chair on the other, and then a nice bed next to it.
- Since we got in late we couldn't explore the area very well, but there are a lot of restaurants nearby, and it has easy freeway access. It's also right next to the Madonna Inn, which is just ridiculous and you should definitely walk through that place if you have an extra 30 minutes to spend.
- The breakfast was pretty good, nothing too fancy but it had all the basics, along with a nice sitting area.
- I didn't go in the pool, but it was very big and the pool area looked pretty nice.

Cons - I'm pretty sure we got one of the worst rooms in the hotel (even though we booked early...I guess thats how they offer a AAA lowered rate). We had a glorious view of the roof and that was about it.
- When we first got there, there was a curled up black hair on the toilet. There was no way it could have been missed while cleaning the bathroom. It was just sitting there waiting for me, ha.
- Since our room was in the back somewhere, it also made for awkward entry from the parking lot to our room. There were no ramps from the parking lot to the sidewalk and no elevator. And 3 sets of stairs with heavy luggage is not fun!

The room overall was very nice and I assume the hotel would have felt more comfortable if we were given a better room location. I would definitely stay here again if I ever head back to SLO!
