“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

This was a lovely hotel with wonderful grounds. The room was very comfortable. We enjoyed the evening reception of wine, beer and soft drinks, then thoroughly enjoyed the BBQ. There were good selections at an incredible price. The morning breakfast was also very good with something to suit eveyone's need and appetites. Will definitely stay here again the next time we are in SLO.

Thank you for taking the time to send in your review of our hotel. I enjoyed reading that you found that we had a good selection at the Beer and Wine Tasting reception as well as the barbecue at an incredible price. We provide the complimentary Beer and Wine tasting reception as well as the barbecue so that our guests will be able to enjoy relaxing around the pool courtyard . We feel it is easier to relax when you are having a good time and getting a great value.

We look forward to seeing you again.

Thank you,

We stayed there one night but would have loved to remain longer. The happy hour was a nice touch and the BBQ was very a very good deal. The property has quite a few mature trees and overall is a great retreat. The only issue was that our room was across from the pool machinery and above the laundry - some noise.

Room Tip: Ask for a room far from the pool machine and the laundry.

Thank you for taking the time to send in your review of our hotel. It was nice to read that you wished that you would have been able to stay longer. It was great to see that you noticed the trees that we have around our hotel. Our staff has worked hard for many years to make sure all our landscaping including the tress are well cared for.

We look forward to seeing you again for a longer stay the next time you able to visit SLO.

Lovely hotel with wonderful grounds/landscaping. Nice place to come to after a long drive! Stayed in the King Suite with our kids (14 & 11). They slept on the couches that were so comfortable they didn't bother to open the sofa bed. We had a sliding door that separated our room from their area which was nice. Only negative is that the one bathroom is located in the room with the bed instead of a central area. Great happy hour (unlimited beer and wine in the lounge from 5-7:30pm) and the breakfast had plenty of options for everyone in the family. Loved the shuttle to the Farmer's Market on Thursdays - very convenient!! We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in SLO.

Room Tip: We stayed in room #225 which is away from the street and was very quiet.

Thank you for letting us know about your stay at our hotel. We always like to hear about families that enjoyed their stay with us. Good to hear that you were here on a Thursday and had the opportunity to go to Farmer's Market. Farmer's Market is a great family outing and a good way to see our downtown.

We look forward to seeing you again.

Having stayed at a few different hotels over the years in San Luis Obispo we opted to stay at Quality Suites this time around given the tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed.

The rooms at this hotel were among the best and most spacious we stayed in on our trip to California with separate lounge area to the beds and a balcony. The bedding was extremely comfortable, just the thing after a long drive from LA. The hotel had a very good athmosphere with plenty of activity around the pool and what appeared to be a BBQ area. Rooms were very clean and launderette facilities were good. As regards other hotel facilities we did notice that the shop behind reception was poorly stocked and certainly nothing like the pictures in the hotel booklet. This is a minor issue. Maybe they'd been cleared out by the large group of sports club kids staying at the hotel the night we were there.

The free hot cooked breakfast was very welcome and no complaints regarding the food.

The reception staff were very helpful especially when I sought directions to the airport's car rental desk and check-in and out was very efficient.

The hotel is accessible to the freeway without being so near that noise becomes an issue. Its a short walk into San Luis Obispo which is rather pleasant. Parking was plentiful even though the hotel looked busy.

We'd stay here again enroute to San Francisco from LA.

Room Tip: Suites were spacious and ideal for separating kids from adults in the evening

Thank you for letting us know about your stay at our Hotel. Since we have limited space in our convenience store we stock it to provide the things that guests ask for the most. We do see more activity in the convenience store in the summer. The complimentary DVD rentals in our store is very popular with our guests.

Great to read that you had a pleasant walk to the downtown area of San Luis Obispo. Our guests have told us many times that is well worth the 10 minute walk.

We hope to see you again the next time you are able to visit.

Thank you,

What a gem of a hotel! The reception is welcoming and the grounds surrounding the rooms were such a pleasant surprise.
The suites are huge and can be seperated into two rooms with a sliding door. They provided all you could wish for! We enjoyed complimentary drinks at the bar prior to being taken into town in the hotels car. We were also collected after dinner-what wonderful service. On checking out my son left his jeans in the room and the hotel were more than helpful in arranging to post them to us in the UK and generally gave excellent service. The beloved jeans arrived safely a few days after we returned home, so Thank You Very Much!

Thank you for providing us your experiences at our hotel and posting them on tripadvisor. I appreciate you getting back to us to let us know that you received the jeans your son left behind. We have a great housekeeping staff and the they are very proud of their record with lost and found. They will like knowing that your son's "beloved" jeans arrived safely. It was enjoyable to read that you found us to be a "gem" of a hotel.

We look forward to seeing you again.

We checked in for one night and were so comfortable...we stayed 3 more nights. The wifi worked great, the couch was fairly new and in great shape (hotel couches usually creep me out...) and the bed was truly comfortable. The rooms were separated with doors (rather than studio style) so I could work while my husband slept and vice versa. Nice pool and hot tub too! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The beer/wine/bbq hour actually gives the hotel a sense of community. It's a bit expensive but we loved it. Will happily go back.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. It was great to read that you decided to extend your stay from one day to three. I am glad that the setup of the suites worked out well for you and your husband. I appreciated seeing your comment on the sense of community that we have here during the evening manager's reception. It is hare to convey the relaxed family feeling atmosphere that we have at our poolside barbecue until someone has stayed and experienced it themselves. Your comments will help others understand the community feeling we have here.

Thank you,
