Nothing close to the Amtrak station.

Downtown SLO has the Garden Street Inn or The Granada

With respect to Kibblesmom (whose advice is always sound) "close" is all relative. The Garden Street Inn in downtown SLO is less than half a mile from the Amtrak station. In Boston from where I recently moved, that's easy walking distance. The downtown core of SLO is "worth it," as it's a tree lined, historic, attractive place with tons of great shops, restaurants and the historic 18th century Spanish mission.

I suppose "close" is relative to how heavy one's luggage is, lol!
