“You get what you give...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

Don't get me wrong, this is not a high end hotel by any stretch; but it is cheap, friendly, clean and in a convenient location in SLO. I have found that when you begin by being polite to the employees they usually reciprocate. We found the owners to be very friendly and accomodating allowing us to use the bbq in the pool area for a "mini" 21st birthday party provided we kept it clean. It is kind of noisy since it's right on the freeway but considering the price in comparison with other accomodations in the area, it was a minor inconvenience. The rooms were clean, updated & comfortable. Maybe there are some rooms that have not been renovated but our beds & pillows were very comfy. I like a room to have a fridge & microwave, enough garbage cans, blow dryer, magnifying mirror & full length mirror. The only thing lacking were the last two. For the price, deal with it. Go to Booking.com for a good price. We stayed 2 nights & could have stayed longer with no problem. Not fancy, but perfectly fine if you want to save money!

Do not waste your hard earned money here!! Absolutely horrible reception service by both a man & woman. No noise control, so I could hear everything my neighbors were doing and saying. Disgusting rooms.

If I could have paid $50 like another reviewer I would have given this place 2 stars. As it was they charged me $280 and it definitely is not worth any where near that. If no stars were allowed I would have rated it lower. The rooms are clean, but offer nothing after that. Cheap furniture (think Ikea on a tight budget)' small TV with poor picture, hard to access wifi, microwave perched precariously on top of mini-fridge, small bathroom with many stains ( did not use shower as it was so scary looking), lights didn't all work, right next to two all-night fast food restaurants on a busy street at the end of the freeway off ramp (heard cars noise and people talking out side window all night.) On the plus side, they have a key drop outside the office so you can drop the key off and leave real early in the morning (won't be able to sleep so might as well hit the road early.)

En route to lax had booked hotel 12 days in advance. Arrived at hotel at 8pm and rang bell for attention. A women came out looked at our reservation and informed us that she had called an hour ago and left a voice mail stating she had let our room go as she had received a better rate per night and cancelled our reservation. She then proceeded to inform us this is not my problem and was very rude and unhelpful. The overall appearance of the hotel was generally run down with peeling paint and directly on the highway.

my family booked rooms at this place to stay overnight after a wedding they were booked by my sister on her credit card with various names of family members for the rooms to get as they arrived,some paid cash others repaid my sister as to the amount of the room there were several rooms with moldy bath rooms an unsafe bathroom fixtures unfortunately we could not find another hotel in the area and the wedding was that evening and we all had to stay.. when we checked out the next day my sister received an alert on her phone that PRICE LINE had received a charge to her card for a no show but all rooms were paid for one by cash and that room was sent in by hotel management as a no show. my sister went back to the hotel to talk the the staff and was treated rudely. when staff was shown reviews of past double billing they signed a document stating that there was a mistake and would take back the charge, only to find out they did it again. beware of PRICE LINES booking this room for you this is a moldy and old hotel

I went to school in SLO and I remember seeing this place. It looked outdated, very tired, but it was in a great location. When we found a really great deal to stay here Memorial Day weekend, I expected Motel 6. We were pleasantly surprised as it was a few notches above that. The exterior is definitely not great but the room we had was upgraded w/ granite counters and sinks and showers, flat screen tv. It wasn't the greatest room but alot of hotels in SLO are older so we left happy. You do hear the freeway noise but that didn't bother me at night. Its almost walkable to downtown and walkable to good places to eat like Breakfast Buzz and Cowgirl Cafe. For a good price, I would stay here again.

My wife and I stay here quite often. It's nice, quiet, clean and the staff is very friendly. It's also close to the freeway and to downtown SLO!! The wifi is spotty. It's not the Hilton but its worth the price we payed.
