“Very nice place and reasonably priced as well”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

We all think it is a very nice place , nothing extremely fancy but clean and comfy and less than $100 for the night, very worth the cost and would stay here again if ever back in this area . If your looking for a nice place to rest than I we recommend the place for you

Stayed July 2014, travelled with family

Our room had dirty cushions on the chairs, mold on the shower door, paint peeling off the wall in the bathroom and a badly worn heater grill. I would recommend you not stay there. It's worth about $50 a night, not $200. Please tell your friends. The bed was hard as a rock.

This is the worst most overpriced motel we have ever stayed in. Over $200 for a small, old, dingy room with a creaky bed, no A/C, noisy fan, falling apart shower and slow internet speed. It may be worth more like $95.

Room Tip: Carefully select other nearby motels that are higher quality for the same price.

We were visiting for only one night.
The motel is authentic, and located in a lovely area, close to several restaurants, cafes and city downtown.
Smoking is allowed in the middle of the parking area, with nice table & bench setting (other places will send you outside the premises to smoke).
The room was basic, but clean and nice and the shower was great.
The host was really nice and friendly, took care of our needs and gave many tips for the area.
Thank you :)

Living a bit of a gypsy lifestyle I was in need of a place to call home for a few days.Traveling solo this space is safe, clean, affordable, family owned & operated, and conveniently located to downtown San Louis Obispo and the 101. I will stay here again for sure.

Room Tip: The porch light was unable to be switched off at night which caused the room to be a bit bright. Per...

If you are looking for a convenient and affordable hotel in SLO , this is a good choice. Rooms are clean, bed is comfortable and the hotel is easy to find. There is even a coffee shop adjacent to Los Padres to help you jumpstart your day's adventures. I've stayed here twice and will stay again!

I think a lot of the negative reviews stem from people who paid high prices on some "special" Cal Poly weekend and/or who are used to more Four-Seasons-y accomodation. I use tripadvisor a lot to find basic, non-chain motels and hotels when I am road-tripping. For that purpose, this place was great. I stayed here for one night when there was nothing special going on at the University. Walked in, got a great price (lower than online) and a nice room. There were some spots that could use fresh paint and the like, but it was clean and smelled good and comfortable. Guy at front desk (owner I think) was very nice and easy to deal with. Most important it was comfortable walking distance to food, downtown and the like. And per previous reviews there is a good, comfortable coffee shop next door so the morning caffeine fix has been easy. I'd probably be less positive too if I'd paid $200 for the room, but I paid less than $100 and it was a good deal on that basis.
