Reviewed 6 August 2014

We were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay for one night during our drive to SF.
There are a bunch of hotels in SLO but most appear to be older/dated. This was the case w/ Quality Suites. Not usually the type of place I would choose to stay in terms of the dated rooms. That being said, the rooms are very spacious with a separate living space. This was very convenient as we were a group of 4. They also offer a happy hour at 5:30-7:30 with free wine/beer and pretzels. This is a great perk. The hot breakfast in the morning has a GREAT selection. Fresh strawberries, bananas, yogurt, made to order eggs, etc. You can even get the breakfast to go and take it to your room/on the road if you wanted. There is a free shuttle into downtown SLO but it's also an easy drive.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and posting it on tripadvisor. Even though we are not your “usual” hotel I was glad to see that you gave us a try. It was nice to find out that you found our suites to be spacious and that you had the chance to enjoy the many amenities we provide.

We look forward to seeing you again.

Enjoyed a very comfortable stay. The staff picked us up from the Amtrak station and gave us a very nice room in the back corner of the third floor - quiet, away from the pool area. The complimentary wine and beer happy hour was fun, and the reasonably priced BBQ dinner was welcome after our long trip on the train. We were very pleased with the made-to-order breakfast each morning. The shuttle was available to get downtown, but we enjoyed the walk into the charming downtown area.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and posting it on tripadvisor. It is always good to hear from our guests that arrive by train. Our guests tell us that our hotel is unique in that you can arrive by train and then by utilizing our shuttle there is no need have car to visit and enjoy our hotel. I was happy to see that you pointed out the many things to enjoy in our town that are within walking distance from the hotel. Walking downtown and visiting all the shops, Mission and restaurants is a great way to experience San Luis Obispo.

We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are able to visit San Luis Obispo.

Thank you,

We stayed here for one evening on our way to San Francisco and it was the least expensive but one of the best places we stayed. The barbecue they put on on the evening was excellent , simple well cooked food for a more than reasonable charge :-) Breakfast was also excellent with fresh cooked eggs . The staff were great very friendly and helpful

Lovely place, very clean, spacious and the staff were very friendly. The swimming pool was lovely, and the full breakfast included made it good value. We stayed on a Thursday, so availed of the hotel happy hour before getting a courtesy lift into the farmer's market. They came and collected us from the same point when we were ready to head back to the hotel later that night. We were sorry to leave!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our hotel and posting it on tripadvisor. It was good to see that you had the opportunity to enjoy farmer’s market during your stay at our hotel. Many of our guests take advantage of the shuttle down to farmers market and find it to be a great to get to and from the event. The guests have told us that they really like the shuttle because they don’t have to worry about parking or directions when they go into town. We appreciate your kind words letting us know that you found our hotel to be a “lovely place to stay”.

We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are able to visit San Luis Obispo.

Thank you,

We came for one night to visit Cal Poly and this was a perfect spot. Great breakfast included (there was also a cocktail reception and BBQ that we did not attend but have to assume it was good, too)
The room was spacious, clean and the beds were super comfy. I was a little worried that it wouldn't be quiet as our room was near the hot tub and the parking lot. But it was perfectly quiet and we slept great! Also, they have free DVD movie rentals so we got to watch a movie, too!

Stayed here for night driving from LA to San Fran we were exhausted from travelling and were pleased to arrive. Check in was easy and all the staff encountered here were so helpful polite and efficient. The bed was comfortable and it was the best nights sleep. All the extras the drinks and BBQ meal on site were such a nice touch. The breakfast was awesome. Would recommend this place and would not hesitate to stay again.

I am first going to disclose I am a Choice Hotel employee and therefore I look at our properties with a discerning eye. Would I stay here again? Absolutely. I had a king suite with two TV's which was perfect for the teenager traveling with me and allowed privacy since the pocket door separated him from my sleeping quarters. The hotel grounds are like an oasis, the cooked to order breakfast a wonderful addition, the bbq at dinner so inexpensive and the complimentary beverage bar in the evening a real treat. Our maid, Maria paid attention to the room detail and I was delighted to stay in a spotless suite. The 24 hour gift shop with complimentary DVD rentals was a great add on because we saw two videos after a long day sightseeing. The spa/hot tub had the best jets and not a speck of dirt. The pool was equally as pristine. I have stayed in some of the best hotels in America yet I preferred this gem on the Central Coast.

Room Tip: The pool gets busy during the day but was no problem at night. Stay further in the back of the hotel...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and posting it on tripadvisor. We wish you could have stayed longer as well. It was great to see that you are in the hospitality industry as well. We appreciate hearing from people with a hospitality background because they provided us a unique perspective that we do not always get. It was nice to see that you enjoyed the many amenities that we provide. Understanding that you have stayed at some of the best hotels in America and prefer our hotel lets us know that we are providing our guests an experience that they appreciate.

We look forward to seeing you again.
