“Stay here as long as you can.”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

We only had one night here, but vowed to stay for as long as possible nest time. the room was a suite, a front room with an "L" shaped couch, plus a desk with 2 desk chairs and a reading lamp. The next room had a king size bed that was deliciously soft and comfy. Had a window with a courtyard view in the front room, and exterior window inthe bedroom with a nice view. The bathroom was great. Everything was updated, comfortable, had a fridge and 2 (!) tv sets, 2 sinks, quiet and so relaxing and comfortable. Then we found out that the hotel had an open bar ( se of Dec. 2011) from 5:50 to 8 nightly, no ticket needed, which meant we each had 3 tap beers, wines were also available, plus cheese and crackers for free. And the hotel offered a dinner-time barbeque/grill with tacos for $1, hot dogs for about $2 and hamburgers for $3 or so plus other grilled main items. Salads on the side, Gads we ate at the hote and saved a bundle. Then the hotel offered a free hot breakfast that did require a ticket, and included eggs any way, bacon, sausage, waffles, toast, hot & cold cereal, and more. A full professional kitchen & staff were making the hot itens! We were completely won over by this place and would love to move in permanently if circunstances allowed! Just kidding. There was also a 24 hour shop in site that had movie rentals, a variety of local wines by the bottle, snack food and ice cream, etc. A poo in the middle of the courtyard. Staff was so helpful and friendly. Beautiful landscaping and located in downtown SLO. This place is amazing.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor which was nice, up from the pool and barbeque first floor activity, but...

Thank you for writing your review on Tripadvisor and letting us know about what you experience at our hotel during your stay. It was good to see that you recommended to “stay here as long as you can”. We do have several guests that stay with us on a long term basis. We have even had a few guests that have stayed with us for over a year. You did a great job of describing our hotel. It was nice to see that you were able to enjoy our Tacos that we provide at the barbecue on Taco our “Taco Tuesdays”.

We hope to see you again for a longer stay on your next visit.

Thank you,

We agree with other reviewers that this is a nice place to stay. The suite lay-out with the separate living room is really nice. Very clean and nice public areas and breakfast. Breakfast staff were really friendly. It was a bit noisy in the pool area. We didn't have time for it, but groups were enjoying sitting in circles set up in the pool area. It was strange that our bathroom had a pocket door and the only sink was in the counter in the bedroom. About a 10-minute, easy walk to the Apple Farm, a good, country-style restaurant with an extensive menu for hungry, weary travelers who need to stretch their legs.

Room Tip: Think about whether to ask for a room away from the pool. It will be quieter, but the trade-off is t...

Thank you for writing a review of our hotel. It as good to see that you agree with the other reviews “that our hotel is a nice place to stay” while visiting San Luis Obispo. When we built the hotel we decided to put the sink outside the bathroom in the vanity area. This was done so the sink could be used while someone is using the bathroom. This was something our customer told us they wanted when we did the original market research used to designing the hotel. I appreciated hearing that you found our hotel staff to be “really friendly”. We have a good group of associates and they will like knowing that you enjoyed their friendliness.
We hope to see you again soon.

Thank you,

Very spacious room, with a separate living room (even a pocket sliding door to divide the two). Had the nice touches of two TVs, a fridge, microwave and DVD player in the room. Upon our check-in, we were invited to a happy hour in the lounge area for a free cocktail. There was also free breakfast the next morning.

They even were running a free shuttle to downtown area for New Years Eve.

The property was very nicely kept, inside and out. The rooms were clean. My only complaint was that the pillows on the bed were so small and thin, that I didn't get a great night's sleep, even when I stacked two of them up. But I also did not call the desk to see if they had any others available.

I'd stay here again if I were in the area.

Thank you for writing about your visit to our hotel on Tripadvisor. I hope you had the chance to take our complimentary shuttle downtown on New Years Eve. The shuttle on New Years Eve has been a very popular with our guest since we started providing that service 10 year ago.

I was sorry to hear about the pillows. I wish that you would have called us. We do have a variety of pillows that we make available to our guests for just such an occasion. We have not found “one” type of pillow that meets everyone’s expectations. The same weekend you were here one of our guests bought the pillows in their suite because they liked them so much.

It was nice to hear that you would stay with us again.

We look forward to seeing you again when you get the chance to visit SLO.

Thank you,

For over 30 years we have driven from Northern California to Southern California to celebrate Christmas and most of the time we enjoy stopping somewhere mid-way for an overnight. Going south we love staying in Santa Barbara. From Santa Cruz we can make it to San Luis Obispo in 2-1/2 hours for lunch and then only about another 1-1/2 hours to Santa Barbara from there. The problem is from Santa Barbara on into LA and beyond the traffic is usually horrible. This Christmas holiday we decided to stay in San Luis Obispo the day after Christmas. We left LA at 2:20pm and did not arrive at the hotel until 7pm - it took us 2 hours to get thru Ventura at a snail's pace. Thanks to TA reviews we booked a very reasonably priced room at the Quality Suites and when we checked in we found the lobby bustling with happy guests enjoying the complimentary Happy Hour!!! We quickly checked into our fabulous, huge 2 room suite and rushed back for a beer served by the most friendly bartender who was so generous and accommodating! This quickly melted away our "sitting in traffic" frustrations! We were traveling with our 21 year old daughter and she happily camped out in the very nice living. So great to have that extra space and not have to pay for 2 rooms! The complimentary breakfast the next morning was very good too. San Luis Obispo is a great college town set in the beautiful countryside of central California. It is a great stop. We also discovered a new restaurant which we highly recommend: Big Sky Cafe. Also we easily walked to the Apple Farm for dinner which was very good.

Thank you for telling us about your stay on tripadvisor. It was nice to hear that you decided to take a break from the holiday traffic and stop off in SLO. It was good to know that we could relieve a little of the anxiety you felt from all the holiday traffic. At least the traffic did not prevent you from arriving in time to enjoy or complimentary beer and wine tasting reception. We have a great staff and they will like knowing that you find our hotel “fantastic for families”.
We hope to see you again soon.

We stayed a week using SLO as a base for day adventures. Enjoyed this hotel. Nice happy hour and dinner available outside for a small price. Clean and nice staff. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: would stay away from the pool area during warm times, as kids in the pool can be noisy

We decided to stay at the Quality Suites at the last minute. We were very pleased with the cleanliness and quality of the accommodations.
They offered a complimentary beer and wine happy hour that overlapped with a barbecue. The bbq offered a variety of foods in the $1 to $6 range including salad, coleslaw and condiments. It was very reasonably priced and professionally prepared. Between the happy hour and the bbq, we were able to enjoy our evening meal for an amazing low cost. Try to include it as a budget bonus to your trip.
I have seen lots of great reviews on this property and I would have to agree with them, I was very pleased with our stay.
