Reviewed 4 April 2013

very helpful, reliable staff. I left my wallet in the room and they promptly called me and held it safely for me until I could come back to claim it. We stayed for one night and arrived in town without a reservation and after asking at another hotel they sent us to Los Padres.

The rooms are definitely a bit weathered and outdated, but the price can't be beat. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the location is very convenient to downtown SLO. Recommended so long as you're ok with a room that is a bit on the shabby side.

Stayed here for two nights. We did not have a reservation and the lady at the checkin was friendly and helpful. We checked out the room and decided to stay. The cost was reasonable.

We were close enough to walk downtown, which was a consideration for us.

The room was small but it was clean. The beds were comfortable and the place was quiet.

There was no coffee maker in the room and that would be a good addition.

This is an older property but it has been kept up, it is clean and has a good location.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask to see the rooms first to ensure it meets your needs.

My experience there was the best... Their location is a short walk to downtown SLO... And the Thursday Night Farmer's Market or take the "Trolley" when it's running... Couple of places to eat not a hundred yards away... Great Mexican food and happy hour even closer... The Motel is somewhat Vintage... Like a good wine... However... The rooms are clean and more then adequate with a mini-fridge and microwave...They have very fast Wifi...Considering the location... The Motel is a real value for SLO... The staff was very attentive to my needs and always helpful... I'm retired and travel a lot and found myself returning to this quaint little Inn any time I was in town... The Motel is comparatively small and I enjoyed the Court Style layout of the Spanish Style Architecture... I don't normally write reviews but just wanted to let the next guy know that you can get more bang for your buck at Los Padres Inn in San Luis Obispo...Aka SLO...

Room Tip: I enjoy staying in the rooms in the corner in the back of the Motel... They have carports that make...

For 71 US Dollars a night, I was expecting breakfast but the hotel does not have breakfast available. The room was clean and quiet. When I asked about the internet connection, the employee said the code for access would be on the telephone in the room but it wasn't. I coudn't be bothered to go back to reception and ask again as it was late at night. The location was okay. It's about a 10 minute walk from most restaurants.

Great little hotel, not far from the town centre of San Luis Obispo. Arrived on a Thurs evening and we were able to make it to the farmers market which was a highlight, great food and great atmosphere in the main street. Our room rate was cheap and it was clean and comfortable. The manager and staff were friendly and helpful and we would certainly recommend this motel to any of our friends and family. There is also a great place to eat breakfast right next door.

This little motel has a cheery blue and terracotta exterior with charming touches like hand-painted tiles and courtyard fountain. Staff member was not cordial over the phone, but very friendly in person. Our rate was cheap ($85) and the room size reflected that -- very small but adequate. Great location, but street traffic was noisy. Little drawbacks were annoying: burnt out lightbulb, very tiny bars of soap, no liner for ice bucket (we were told they were washed daily instead), and the hot water sink faucet was ridiculously loose. All in all, a good price but don't expect luxury.
