“Liked it..a lot!”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

we came in and they changed our room, no problem. great evening reception and bbq (worth the small price). clean and roomy and reasonably priced. breakfast was really "cooked to order". fresh scrambles and waffles and a roomy area to enjoy. thank you! on a one night stop-over, this was a very comfortable and nice place on our road trip.

Thank you for telling everyone about your stay on tripadvisor. It was great to hear that you “liked it a lot." From what you describe, it looks like you had the opportunity to enjoy our many amenities. San Luis Obispo is a great town with many things to see and do.
Hopefully, on your next visit you were able to stay a few more days and explore our town while you are here.

We look forward to seeing you again the next time you're in San Luis Obispo.

Thank you,

We stayed here for one night during a drive from LA to SF after we got stuck in Santa Barbara traffic. The staff were so friendly and the entire property was so great we wish we could have stayed longer. The nightly BBQ and drink specials made it a place to remember. We'll definitely be going back.

Nice location, walking distance to town. And great shuttle service if ya want a ride anywhere!
Rooms are all suites, so if you are looking for something simple without another room with an extra bed well forget it. All the rooms here are the same!
Big drawback here is the bathroom is in the Bedroom area. Very wierd! The sink and vanity is right next to the bed. Absolutely no bathroom privacy ! Just odd, and when you take a shower and get out you walk right into the bedroom! room sorta dark, not enough light. Maybe the end units have more light from the windows! But great service, wonderful happy hour each night free wine and beer, a barbecue with cheap eats, if ya want although there is such great food in SLO pass on that!
Ok place in a pinch, but bathroom thing way too odd!

Room Tip: Try a corner unit with more light. Owing in

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review of our hotel on tripadvisor. It was great to read that you found us to be a nice location, walking distance to town and have a great shuttle service for rides to downtown.
I am sorry that you found our bathroom setup to be odd. When we did the original market research on our suite configuration a lot of guests told us that they've preferred the bathroom to be next to the bedroom. Their reason for this was that it eliminated wasted hall space and also allowed more privacy in the bathroom while guests are in the living room area.
It was good to see that you were able to attend our happy hour and found it to be wonderful!
We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are in SLO.

Thank you,

We stayed at the Quality Suites in SLO this past weekend. We went down to go wine tasting in Paso Robles. It was a great hotel. It’s not “fancy” nor does it have all the bells and whistles that let’s say a “Hyatt” “Omni” “Ritz” may have but it’s nicely kept up, clean, centrally located and the staff is great! Honestly I was expecting a “motel 6” type place – small & down to the extreme basics but I was quite surprised when we pulled up. It is charming!!! It’s much larger than I expected. Some of the rooms had balconies that overlooked the street. The rooms are all suites which is faaaaaaaabulous when traveling with a group – one night ½ of our group was asleep and the other ½ just hung out in our “living room”. From the moment we walked into the lobby the staff was genuinely helpful – trying to find us a room by the rest of our group (we were the last to check in) and more than happy to give us recommendations about where to eat etc. Some of the perks of this hotel: free happy hour for 2 hours each evening (I think 5:30 – 7:30) – beer & wine! Free breakfast each morning – I was expecting either a chafing dish with a ton of scrambled eggs, etc or a couple danishes and coffee laid out in the lobby…nope, not at all – fresh eggs, waffles & pancakes made to order! Fresh, hot & real eggs – not powdered, etc. I had scrambled eggs with spinach, mushrooms and cheese each morning! They have a very well appointed “island” that has muffins, fruit, toast of all kinds (English muffins, bread, bagels, etc) and peanut butter, cream cheese, juice, coffee – I was truly surprised! And we got this each morning. At night they BBQ by the pool and the cost is nominal - $3 for a burger, $2 for a hotdog, chicken sandwiches, etc. This isn’t free but it’s fresh hot off the BBQ! And if you don’t want to go anywhere it’s perfect. The courtyard in the middle of the hotel is so cute! There is a pool & a hot tub and they have a ton of lounging areas with firepits! Faaaaabulous place to just hang out! The rooms are basic but clean and well appointed – a TV in both the living room and the bedroom. I will definitely be staying here again on my next trip down to SLO.

I came here for a one night stay for a wedding that was taking place at Santa Margarita Ranch. Overall, I was very satisfied with my stay here and the hotel exceeded my expectations of a Quality Inn. It's located on a small little row of hotels, the Quality Inn seems like one of the cuter options to stay at. It has a very nicely decorated lobby with a satillo tile floor, fans overhead and new furniture.

The rooms were comfortable, although I thought the green furniture was dated looking, everything was clean. This place seems to be pretty popular with families who have children but they didn't bother us (we normally opt to hotels without much of a family presence). We never heard any of our neighbors which led to some nice, sound sleep.

They have a happy hour available for patrons from 3-8? every day with drink specials, and deals on hamburgers and hot dogs. It's right next to the pool and some comfy looking outdoor furniture, I would have checked it out if we weren't preoccupied with wedding duties. They also offer a complimentary breakfast the following morning. The coffee is nice and hot, but I didn't get a chance to check out the food.

I also really liked that they had a 24 hour convenience store located right behind the check-in desk. Since there are no markets within "reasonable" walking distance, we grabbed a few munchies on our way back to the room after we came back from the wedding.

I don't get a chance to visit SLO often, but if we return, I'd come back to the Quality Inn to stay.

Thank you for providing a review of our hotel on tripadvisor. Just to clarify, our complimentary beer and wine tasting reception runs from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM each evening. I hope you are able to return to enjoy our complimentary breakfast and the poolside furniture. It was good to see that you were here for a wedding. We have many wedding groups and it is good to see everyone reuniting and enjoying our hotel. The complimentary beer and wine tasting reception creates a great opportunity for groups to relax and mingle.

It was great to read that when you come back to San Luis Obispo that you will be staying with us. We look forward to seeing you again.

My wife, two young daughters and I stayed at Quality Suites San Luis Obispo for 3 nights and were pleasantly surprised. We had low expectations since it is a national chain, but you can tell the management's focus is on the customer. The staff was very friendly and very helpful with any questions we had. The grounds, rooms, and restaurant/ bar were clean. The rooms are what should be expected by a chain hotel, but with the complimentary happy hour every night, a nice pool, close proximity to downtown and wineries, as well as the very good complimentary breakfast you shouldn't be spending too much time in the room. It was our first trip to SLO and we will be staying hear the next time we come back.
