Stayed here for 2 nights on our trip up the west coast. Great situation for the town and surrounding areas. We borrowed a couple of the hotels bikes and visited one of the nearby vineyards. We were lucky enough to be in Obispo the night of the Farmers Market which was in the street just 50 metres from the hotel. No breakfast but great adjoining restaurant who will deliver to the hotels open air patio for you. Rooms on the small side but perfectly formed and very clean.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled as a couple

Just returned from a weekend stay in SLO at the Granada, and it was great. Pricey? YES, its NEW and IN THE HEART OF TOWN!!. if you want low budget, go to the motel 6, this is not the run down crash pad hotel type place, BUT if your a real grown up, and you want a high end experience, a great bar, and a bistro that has really great food, STAY HERE.. did I mention the convenience of being in the heart of the town?
Cons - limited parking, and the rooms are "euro style" meaning pretty small. The End units are a little bigger if you really need the space.
Pros - Staff was really polite and accommodating. There is complimentary water and coffee/Danish in the terrace area that separates the upper "tower" areas, and the bar & bistro were excellent to say the least.
If you want elegance in the hear of SLO, you want the Granada Hotel.

Room Tip: be sure to realize that the folks in the outside terrace area are seated right outside of your rooms!! the end rooms have small balconies, and are a bit larger too.

We had a wonderful stay in June to the Granada Hotel. The location is right smack in the middle of town and it was walking distance to everything we wanted to do. The hotel staff was very friendly. You can check out bikes and ride them around town. They have a great restaurant and bar at this small boutique hotel. The patio on the second floor was great. It was very relaxed and all you have to do is call downstairs to get a drink brought up to you. They had games you could play, too. We had a room on the street in what they considered a "suite". The room was adorable, but the drapes did not block out light, the walls were thin and the windows definitely weren't double paned. You could hear everything. I heard the lady using an expletive in the room next to us at 1:30 in the morning. You could hear the street traffic like you were on the street. To muffle the sound we turned on the A/C unit. Well, that didn't really help because every so often we heard this vibrating sound. It was like a cell phone going off. It took us a day to figure it out it only happened when the A/C was on. Putting a pillow over our head was the only way to minimize the noise. Besides that annoyance we really enjoyed the overall experience. If they could just do some more soundproofing it would be 5 star for me.

Room Tip: If you really want some sleep don't get a room on the street.

Fantastic cozy and small hotel, with a modern and untraditional décor and layout.
Fantastic service in both hotel and bistro.
Great dining in the bistro.
Central for shopping, visiting wineries and whale watching.

The rooms are lovely, nice nice and have charm. However the floors are very thin. we could the people above walkig - quite loudly. There were a lot of ppl partying in the hotel. The walls were so thin that we got to hear it all.

i know we stayed in a college town, but was in the middle of summer, plus at the prices we paid i did not think students could afford it.

as i said the decor is lovely...they have a nice terrace on the second floor and bikes for sharing. so they have a lot of the ingredients. But they really need to get some sound proofing going on...and a night manager who enforces some quiet time.

If you stay there do not let them put you on the first floor. At least you want have women in high heels walking on your head all night.

i will review the bistro separately.

Room Tip: do not stay on first floor. its very loud.
