Good hotel to stay. I would have said great, however the hotel has been aging gracefully. The rooms certainly need updating. Flat screen TVs are possibly the only updated elements. The staff was very kind and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The furniture is in good condition but as I mentioned can be updated. Location very good. Great breakfast. Ample free parking. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The room was comfortable and spacious. Close to some local restaurants. We went to Hearst Castle in the morning (about 1 hour drive), and this place seemed much better than any of the other hotels/motels closer to Cambria, based on talking to the other people on the Hearst Castle tour. The free breakfast is only free if you wake up early and don't mind waiting in a long line. Various breakfast foods seem to run out quickly. A lot of families were staying there and the pool area was filled with kids.

We stayed here for 5 nights while my husband was attending a hobby related conference at the hotel. Each room is really a suite with a large sitting room (couch, TV, desk, microwave,frig) a bathroom area with an inner room for the toilet, sink, and shower/tub) and an outer space with a large counter and sink to do hair, shave, etc. The separate bedroom is large and contains another TV, 2 nightstands, 2 double (others possibly available), chest of drawers, and wardrobe to hang up clothes. Parents and up to 2 children would be comfortable here.

An exercise room, pool, and 2 complimentary computers with internet access are also provided to guests, but guests must pay a fee of $6-$7 per 24 hours to hook up their own laptop in their rooms.

The complimentary breakfast is the best deal in town. Omlettes and other egg dishes are made to the customer's specifications --the diner may request spinach, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, green peppers, cheese, etc. to be added to the omlette and request fried potatoes, sausage, or bacon (cooked just right) to go with it. The diner can also choose toast, baked goods, yoghurt, cereal or fresh fruit to go along with it. Good coffee.

The hotel's lobby and dining area are extremely spacious and comfortable-- located in a large eye catching square atrium with several stories of rooms being located up above.

The only thing I didn't like was the fact that the coffee pot furnished in the room -- isn't.
Instead, it is a gadget that drips the coffee into 2 styrofoam cups--thus one can't keep the coffee warm for a while or pour a little more. However, more coffee is available from the dining room.

There are a couple restaurants within walking distance (Applebees, Tahoe Joe's --which we didn't like, etc. However, our very favorite one to walk to was a Chinese Restaurant --the Golden Gong across from Madonna Plaza on Madonna Road--which had absolutely delicious food and was relatively inexpensive.

The hotel is really too far away from the historic part of town to walk to, so the person who wishes to sightsee should rent a car or check into taking the bus to town. There is a bus stop on Madonna Road that one can easily walk to to visit the town.

This hotel is really a great place for a business or other conference because of the spacious suite and public areas, great breakfast, and fairly close access to the historic part of San Luis Obispo with its shops and other restaurants.

A smaller version of the Embassy Suites chain. Location is in the back of a shopping mall. Nice inside and the free drinks at Happy Hour is always a nice touch. Signage on the main strip ( Madonna Blvd) could have been better to locate the hotel and the setting is less than ideal but once you are inside all is good.

We were there for a wedding. The reception was held at the hotel and they did a great job with that. The rooms were clean but it looks old. It could really do with some freshening up. It's also in the middle of a shopping mall and a bit far from downtown. We were hoping to walk to downtown. The breakfast was good.
