Heritage Inn B&B
Reviewed 30 October 2011

For a little more than $100 a night the Heritage Inn is a bargain for anyone staying in the SLO area, especially for parents of students looking for budget-priced lodging that is close to campus. Although the property is adjacent to a Highway 101 on-ramp the traffic noise was minimal to non-existent even though our room's window faced the busy thoroughfare. The room was just big enough for the two of us and the large antique bed roomy as well as comfortable. For a little more you can opt for a room with a private bath, but we did not feel inconvenienced in the slightest in sharing the two second-floor bathrooms available for the two rooms without. Our room did have a sink and a fireplace. The host was warm, friendly and made us feel welcome. Breakfast was fresh daily and above average B&B fare. We noted that the cook was more than happy to adjust the menu upon request for veggies, vegans, lactose intolerant, allergies, etc. Pets are welcome, too. Both Jen and I felt quite comfortable and will definitely not hesitate to book again in the future.

Room Tip: While all appear similar in size and furnishings, the only major difference is whether you want a pr...

Fairly small B&B tucked away just off interstate 101. Communal living room was good, dining area was cramped (and the place wasn't full the night we were there). Bedroom was small and the ensuite was poky.
Close to main shopping centre and there are good restaurants and facilities in the town. I am sure there are better deals for the price.

Room Tip: All are upstairs so pack light

We already miss the Heritage Inn...

Our room was clean, comfortable and sweet, and the location on the edge of SLO is a short walk or drive to town. What sets the Inn apart from other B&Bs, though, is the lovely host, Lisa! She is as unobtrusive or chatty as you wish (though we thoroughly recommend chatting, she has had such an interesting life path so far!), and as many reviewers have already said, she cooks up delicious breakfasts and to-die-for afternoon cookies.

We absolutely recommend a stay!

We just returned from our visit to San Luis Obispo and The Heritage Inn. Having never stayed at a bed and breakfast before we were a little hesitant about privacy, noise and shared bathrooms. Boy, were we blown away. The house is amazing and we rarely saw the other guests- only at breakfast. The breakfast was amazing and we woke up each morning to the smells of cinnamon cake and quiche. Only complaint- the Two Buck Chuck wine that was served at night. Being in wine country, we expected something a little more. But, the bathrooms were spotless and the house mostly quiet except for the traffic on Saturday night. Lisa, the host, was friendly and helpful with dinner recommendations. We are already planning a trip back in August. The Inn made the trip- a great place to return to at night and wake up in the morning.

Room Tip: Pick a room away from the street- try Grandpas rm!

We are not really B and B people, but this might have changed that. We were so welcomed by the woman who works at the inn, Lisa, we felt completely taken care of. The cookies were lovely, the rooms very sweet, and breakfast was delicious. All and all a great visit. Our kids loved it too.

My husband and I (and our dog) chose the Heritage Inn for another weekend away and all of our expectations were met and exceeded for the 2nd time. The gracious innkeeper and hostess gave us a warm welcome. Yes, the rooms are small but they are comfortable and clean. We stayed in the Jasmine room and preferred it to the Mountain View room from our last stay. Outside, stairs lead to a lovely and fairly large creek perfect for the dog or sitting on the chairs to relax. Eve reception with wine, cheese/crackers, freshly-made brownies etc. and great conversation with other out-of-town guests.
Dog-friendly and no extra fee, but not allowed in dining or common area as to be expected. Breakfast the following morning was nice; great selection of hot/cold cereals, toast, yogurt, juices, an egg dish, coffee, tea, etc.

My husband and I stayed one night at Heritage Inn, SLO while visiting our son who studies there. We were welcomed so graciously and warmly by Lisa and her awesome brownies! Next morning, when I asked her if a friend of our son could also join us for breakfast, she welcomed the idea with a big smile. The brunch was awesome, the wonderful hash brown crusted quiche, fresh fruit (i.e. heart shaped water melon pieces!!!!) and variety of coffee cakes, etc. SCRUMPTIOUS especially when combined with her good sense, comments and recommendations... From now on, this is the only place in SLO where we will stay... ABSOLUTELY AWESOME.... ;-)))
