“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2012 via mobile

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. Free beer an wine happy hour, not skimpy either and you don't have to wait in line forever. Free breakfast, not bad at all. Free DVD movies, not a huge selection but we found a couple. Free pickup at train station and ride to and from town. Just go to the front desk and within 1 min. literally you are on your way. Very well maintained property and super clean. Staff are professional, helpful and friendly. Oh yea, bbq by the pool during happy hour with $3.50 hamburgers.

Thank you or telling everyone about our hotel. It is nice to read that your stay with us was “fantastic”. We do our best to provide quick and convenient shuttle service to town, the train station and the airport. Many of our guests have found that they can save the time and expense of driving their car by taking the train and taking our shuttle to town. Many guests also choose to make the short walk to town or nearby restaurant during their stay with us.

We look forward do to seeing you again.

Thank you,

We look forward to seeing you and your three children again the next time you're able to visit San Luis Obispo.

We really enjoyed our stay! We loved the rooms, the pool, the fire pit, the free breakfast, and the nightly barbecue and cocktail reception. We would highly recommend staying here. We can't wait to come back!

Thank you for posting the review of our hotel on tripadvisor. It was great to read that you really enjoyed your stay. The patio area surrounding our pool is one of our most popular amenities. It is great to see many of our guests come together and enjoy the complimentary beer and wine tasting, barbecue, fire pits and the complementary hot cooked breakfast each morning.

It is nice to know that you “can't wait to come back.” We look forward to seeing you again next time you're able to visit SLO.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2012

We stayed for one night on our central coast road trip, and we're glad it wasn't longer. The suites are all "exterior," meaning there are no indoor corridors, your door leads right to the outside. While this makes for an airy feeling, it is terribly noisy! When we arrived to check in, the daily evening Barbeque was going on at the pool, and it sounded like a scene from "Animal House" -- extremely loud shrieking and screaming which went on for hours. When I called the front desk to ask if there was a large group in the hotel, the clerk said, "No, it's just the Barbeque." We gave up the idea of relaxing in the room a bit before and headed out early for dinner. While the pool closes at 10pm, there was still noise, which calmed down by 10:30pm.
At 9am, a worker was painting the outdoor railings with his personal sound system blaring country music (and I mean blaring). So don't expect anything resembling "peace and quiet" at this property.
The suite was clean and spacious (though it really is an odd set up, with the bathroom sink actually IN the bedroom!), and we can see why this is probably a good choice for families and groups. But for a couple looking for a little tranquility, this wasn't the place.

Room Tip: Try to stay AWAY from the pool area!

Thank you for providing a review of our hotel on tripadvisor. I was discouraged to read that you felt that your stay with us was too noisy. We do have a lot of families and groups that enjoy getting together and staying with us during the summer. We should have recommended that you get a suite surrounding our Gazebo courtyard if noise was concern to you. The Gazebo courtyard is away from the pool and BBQ so it is generally a lot quieter. Nice to see you found your suite to be “clean and spacious.”

I appreciate you letting us know about the radio use while associate work to improve our hotel. I will talk to our Engineering department about being more sensitive to the guest’s needs while they are working.

On your next visit please let us know that you like things quiet and we will reserve a suite for you near our Gazebo courtyard.

We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are able to visit SLO.

Thank you,

I was quite pleased with eh Quality Suites. I needed a last-minute room and they were able to accommodate me. I asked for a quite room and was given a top floor room away from the pool (where the managers reception is held). The only noise I heard was some plumbing noise.

The room was clean and the suite was generous. Staff were polite and helpful. The bed was quite comfortable and there were five pillows.

Breakfast was fairly typical, except that the warm food is served through a window from the kitchen. Eggs were made to order. I didn't have time to enjoy the pool (or hot tub) or manager's reception, but they looked good.

A nice feature was the two courtyards, there were lots of tables and chairs outside to enjoy the beautiful SLO weather.

In all, it's a good choice, even though it's not "luxurious".

Room Tip: There are two courtyards: one with the pool and one without.

We are fortunate to have great weather year around. It is good to find out that you were able to experience our great weather while you were here.

I hope that next time you come you are able to enjoy the pool area and the manager’s beer and wine tasting reception. Those are two of our most popular guest amenities

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.

Hopefully, on your next visit you were able to stay a few more days and explore our town while you are here.

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.
