Traveling down the coast from SF to LA we diverted a few miles inland to SFO for the first time. We choose the Granada (based on location and online reviews) and couldn't have made a better choice. We arrived in the morning on a weekend without a reservation and Lisa ( I believe that was her name, she's from MN) showed us the rooms that were available and checked us in immediately. The rooms are well appointed, clean and most importantly have comfortable beds. Loved the natural exposed brick walls and color scheme. The bathroom had a walk in shower ( I hate tub showers) and the amenities were great. The location is in the heart of downtown SLO and other then going for a couple of hikes out of town we never needed to us our car (free parking).
The décor and choice of colors in the entire establishment really worked. You're cheating yourself if you don't stay here. We're going to make a return trip to the area with the Granada as one of the main reasons for it.
As we never visited SLO before the staff was very helpful with recommendations and directions.
