Where to stay?

We are thinking of retiring to SLO, and are planning a weekend visit to get our first "feel" of the place.

Can anyone recommend a good place to stay?

I prefer the embassy suites. But it is kindof on the outskirts, not downtown.

Gosh, there are many places. If you're talking about within the city limits of SLO: Apple Farm, Madonna Inn, Quality Suites, Embassy Suites. There is a B&B in the downtown area called Garden Street Inn so you could easily walk around downtown from the B&B. Many of the other hotels, like on Monterey Street, are a lot farther away but walkable if you don't mind a good walk. Slight incline back to hotels on Monterey St. from downtown area.

Outside of town there is Sycamore Mineral Springs or many places in Morro Bay or Pismo Beach.

You can check out the reviews here on the hotels.

good suggestions from bbmom. you might consider looking at homes in nearby towns too - Morro Bay, Avila Beach, Pismo Beach, Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Paso Robles, Cambria. Each city is unique and growing as retirement locations. More good suggestions for places to stay at sloconcierge.com.
