If your looking for a comfortable bed and a very clean room then this is a good hotel , if your looking for anything else including breakfast I'd give it a pass . This could be a very nice hotel if a little money and effort was put into it but sadly that effort hasn't been made

Fantastic clean motel located just minutes drive to downtown San Luis Obispo. Love the cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff. Room was a good size and is very clean. Parking is free which is always a bonus. The complimentary breakfast was a bonus. While we couldn't get the ground floor rooms requested because we had elderly folk with mobility... More

Not in downtown but a 5 minute drive will get you there. Right off the 101 freeway, in a quiet area but close to restaurants and other services. Clean ample and rooms, very comfortable all around. Friendly staff, although the complimentary continental breakfast was not vey impressive.

This hotel is good value for money and the bed was very comfortable. The bedlinen was clean and fresh. We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds. The bathroom was in dire need of renovation as it was very old and tired. Someone had done some inexpert work with brown silicone sealant around the bath that made the bath... More

Complicated check in process, paying in advance and holding deposit right then from my debit bank card. Poor customer service. Expected ground floor, but got 3rd floor, thanks for elevator access. Small space to pick up continental breakfast and got very crowded.

This hotel is what it is... A budget hotel. the room was basic enough But clean. It's a good walk from downtown so you will need a taxi at night. Location therefore is poor. Staff were nice and gave recommendations to eat which were really good. I'd stay again but only if I got it cheaper.

Average, clean accommodations. Updated room but not spectacular by any stretch. Mattress was too soft, worn and sagged in the middle. Priced too high for what you get but given the area, average price I guess. Staff was very kind and friendly.

We stayed here for a couple of nights for a wedding we were attending. The beds were comfy and the continental breakfast was adequate. The area around the hotel is very pretty and convenient to the downtown area. I have stayed here once before and it was about the same experience, but I remember the breakfast being a little nicer.... More
