“Not the greatest”
Reviewed July 21, 2006

I stayed at this hotel for one night on the way up to the Bay Area and it was a real mix of good and bad.

Good points:
We checked in really late (aprox 10:30 pm), and the staff was very friendly.
The suite was large enough to accomodate my husband and I and 4 children, which is rare.
They had a complementary buffet style breakfast with omlet bar that was the best I have had at this level of hotel.

Bad points:
I got stuck in the elevator for about 15 minutes with my scared children. Apparently it was not the first time according to the maintenance man.
The bedroom smelled of cat urine but we had already unloaded all our lugage and after the elevator ordeal we didn't even attempt to switch rooms.

From the moment we checked in we experinced perfection. Located in central San Luis Obispo, the Emassay is the perfect beginning venue for any event. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms very comfortable, and the complimentary FULL breakfast was a real treat. If you go to SLO, go to the Embassy!

Our room was quiet, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and at
the evening cocktail hour they even had board games set out for the kids. I would
absolutely stay here again. (My room was not in the 240's)

I've only stayed here one night and was thankful for the Suite layout, as we were pushed out of the ballroom at midnight and everything in the hotel and surrounding Madonna Road area was closed up at 11 pm. So we all raided our mini-bars and met back in our suite!

Why? Because the only bar they designed for the Embassy Suites was in the middle of the Atrium lobby and the crowd noise would rise throughout all levels of the hotel. Thus they close the Lobby Bar at 11am. And the closests bar and grill on the same side of Madonna Road is Applebee's. They too close at 11 pm. Across the Road from this Madonna Shopping Center is the famous Madonna Inn. It too closes the ball in its ballroom/dinning room at 11 pm.

This town is short of decent hotels. All the downtown hotels closed or were turned into Senior Housing (Anderson Hotel). There is the 2-story Garden Street Inn downtown, and then up on Monterey Street you'll find quite a few places on the old "motel row". The Apple Farm, Inn at San Luis Creek (formerly Morgan's Mansions), Holiday Inn Express and some of the more popular chains, (Quality Suites, Best Western, etc.)

There is talk of building a couple new hotels in the popular downtown. It's hard to beat San Luis Obispo for just walking and shopping. The new "Taste" across from the County Court House on Monterey St. serves individual tastes from neighboring Edna Valley and Coastal wines. Two new restaurants across from Taste will allow you to bring a bottle of any wine you buy at Taste and not charge you a corkage! (They are Koberl at Blue and Plazza Giusseppe--I recommend both.)
