“nice stay”
Reviewed July 24, 2006

My wife and two daughters, 11 & 9 stayed here July 20-22.. We had asked for double beds, but got one king size. The staff was very friendly and offered to try and move us, but we settled on a roll away bed. We found the hotel above average. The room was clean. The Atrium is nice, but our room had french doors that opened to it and the breakfast at 6am each morning woke us all up. I'd advise getting a room that doesn't have the bedroom overlooking the atrium. The free buffet each morning is great. Plenty of food to choose from and not long lines to get through the buffet. The gym was servicable and my girls loved the warm indoor pool. Parking was free and that was nice not to be gouged. the location is great too. right off the 101 fwy and a quick jaunt to Morro Bay, San Simeon and Cambria. Downtown San Luis was only about 5 mintues away as well. A grocery store and plenty of eateries within walking distance! All in all, I'd recommend this hotel...especially for families. You can't beat the Suite with kids!

We were only spending one night and didn't care that the property was located in a shopping mall. Actually it made it easier to go to the supermarket for snacks for our kids (ages 3,5). The staff was very friendly. When my husband commented that the pool closed earlier than other locations, the manager said that ES was in the process of renovating all the fitness centers/pools and that once they were renovated, they would be open 24 hours a day. We didn't eat the breakfast. We have stayed in 3 ES hotels. We really liked two (other was near the SF airport), but the one in Buena Park was disguisting. It seems as long as the ES you stay at is new or newly renovated, you get a great hotel for the price.

We stayed here on 7-6-06 and had a good experience. The hotel was hosting their annual LA - SF Car Collectors convention and the collectors display their cars right in the huge hotel parking lot. It was very cool to see all of the cars from the different eras.

The room was huge and very clean. The decor was perfec, the buffet breakfast was great and included many fresh fruits. The strawberries seemed to be the size of golf balls and very sweet.

The hotel is in a nice neighborhood, just off the freeway, near a beautiful park. I'm a runner and the front desk knew exactly where I could run, just a few blocks from the hotel lot. The park had a nice pond and a huge gathering of ducks, geese and other water fowl I'm not familar with, so my kids and I went back there after my run, with some bread pieces to feed them.

We passed on the managers reception and drove a few miles to downtown Oxnard which had a farmers market going on. They have that every thursday night and it fills the streets with many people. You can tell they rehabbed a bunch of storefronts and there were many outside seating cafes.

This hotel was the perfect place to stay, halfway between LA and my final destination, San Francisco and I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

  • Liked — Clean, spacious rooms, buffet breakfast, free parking.
  • Disliked — nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — If you have a few minutes in your travels, get to that park across the street.

PROS
-big rooms/suites
-free cocktails, snacks and excellent hot breakfast
-ample parking
-comfortable beds
-very clean

CONS
-bad location - not really in San Luis Obispo, it's outside of the city by the Madonna inn, inside a strip mall and adjacent to a very noisy 101 freeway.
-Wireless internet access did not work reliably. Staff had no clue about it. careful if you are on business.
-not the nicest looking embassy suites
-pool is not very nice-indoor-over chlorinated

SUMMARY
there has to be better places to stay in SLO
the location is absolutely terrible unless you like staying in a shopping mall parking lot right next to the freeway and away from the town. the rooms were great though and the free drinks and food are a plus.

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)
