“Excellent room with friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

We spent one night at the Lodge. The room was superb - very well equipped, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and everyone was helpful. Access from the Coastal Highway was straightforward. Highly recommend.

My husband and I have stayed here twice now over the course of the last 12 months. Both experiences were good; no complaints. First time we stayed in the Craftsman building and Plantation building the second time. Found both rooms to be charming and unique. Visits have been in conjunction with meetings so have not had the experience of breakfast. Great location for access to Cal Poly SLO campus and downtown. We usually just stroll downtown to take in local restaurants or infamous farmer's market. We had no problem parking in a full size pick-up truck. While parking flow might be limited, in my opinion other reviews make too much of this. Look forward to next visit.

We will look forward to your return. Perhaps you could try our third building, The Londonderry, when you return. Please call if you would like information on what rooms are available and we will be happy to discuss that with you.

Thank you for your comments, I am delighted you had an enjoyable visit.

On our 3-day drive from LA to SFO we stayed the first night at 'San Luis Creek Lodge'.

And I have to say it was a very positive surprise! The location is ideal, the staff super-friendly and helpful, the room extremely clean and well appointed. Inside the room I didn't see one scratch of a suitcase. The bed was very comfortable, the TV HUGE, such as the bathroom. Internet is free and fast, even the breakfast included in the room rate.

At the reception there's all-day free coffee and cookies.

What else do you need? This hotel is just perfect!

Great place to stay. The room was beautifully done, warm and inviting. Wonderful service, great breakfast. We will definitely return. We stayed two nights and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. Our first night in town was just up the street and we actually would have remained there except they were booked for the rest of the weekend- lucky for us !!!

This place was a fantastic find. We visit SLO often and this was our first time here. The room was breathtaking and service impeccable. The staff treated us like we were their sole visitors. Everything was meticulous and conveniently located. The amenities are great including the complimentary breakfast. My wife was overwhelmed with our room in the Londonderry building. We could ask for nothing more. Enjoyable stay did enhance our trip.

Room Tip: King size rooms are very spacious and quiet.

With our son at Cal Poly we have stayed in SLO multiple times at various hotels. We just stayed here for the 2nd time and will choose this one the next time. Very reasonable rates for a very nice room including a hot breakfast with a very good selection. The first time we stayed we were in one of their higher end rooms with a fireplace. Very nice - clean and spacious with amenities such as microwave, refrigerator, bathrobes and free DVD rentals. This time we were in one of their basic rooms - also very nice with all the amenities - just no fireplace this time. We've travelled extensively and have stayed at top international hotels like the NY Plaza and Georges 5 in Paris. Is this like that? Obviously no. But for SLO it is an extremely nice, comfortable, friendly and reasonable lodge that rates 5 stars for us!

Yes, the rooms are comfortable and attractively styled. And despite being there for Valentine's weekend we didn't have a problem getting a table for breakfast either day (Saturday and Sunday morning) unlike a previous reviewer for this same weekend - perhaps we are later risers. The freshly cooked eggs were an unexpected treat. There are three "lodges", Londonderry (more Solvang than Irish) closest to the reception/breakfast building, "Plantation" furthest away down a steep slope which runs beside the "Craftsman" where we had a room. The room was large and well set up in the Craftsman style and really quite well done, which made the small issues seem larger than they really were; the bathroom door was hung the wrong way for no good reason, such that it opens into the tiny entry area and blocks the closet and the entry door; the bathroom tile was not edged properly, just cut tile edges; the towel rack was bent and loose; the nightlights (2) were both dead. At this level of pricing it surprised me that these kind of details were let slide. My biggest disappointment was that the advertised Wi-Fi didn't work the whole time we were there. We inquired about it twice and were told the system would be reset. The last morning I was going to mention it again but then overheard the staff telling another guest that they didn't have an answer to why the Wi-Fi was not working and would have to "find some nerds" to fix it. Really?! The car parking is a bit tricky as someone else pointed out but it's okay. We were on the third floor of the Craftsman building (relative to the entry door which is down the steep slope that leads to the Plantation building. Carrying luggage down the sloping driveway and then up three flights of stairs was a challenge - we'd packed one big suitcase. I'm really not sure if we'd go here again. It's quite expensive and only almost justifies the expense with the comfort level provided.

Room Tip: If you have heavy luggage try and get a lower floor room

Thank you for taking the time to post your review here on Tripadvisor. I am glad you enjoyed our rooms and breakfast. I did check out the room details you mentioned and ensured that all necessary corrections were made. I apologize for the wi fi glitch. We have a long standing arrangement with a local professional company to assist with such matters, but the equipment necessary for the repair had to be ordered. We take our wi fi connection very seriously as it is very important to almost all of our guests.

Should you decide to stay with us again in the future, please call and we would be happy to describe all available rooms and perhaps, if you have heavy luggage etc, we could suggest the most suitable location.

Thank you again for taking the time to give us your feedback, we appreciate it.
