“Post OpenHouse at CalPoly vs Comfort Inn”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Good Grief ! If you happened to be renting during OpenHouse, your room rates could have approached $160/night or more! But, right after these dates, the rates were cut about half ! So we got to our room and thought we were walking into two Queens instead of one but that was probably a misunderstanding on my part. Just the same, although the room was clean, it was very small e.g.not enough table space, NO Frig, NO microwave (what are these omissions all about?), TV was fine, AC/Heater remote control did not work except for one button well, actually two if U count the on/off, good breakfasts though. Still, at 1/2 price---too much.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that gives you enough "room"

Was moved from the room next to stairwell to an upper room that was much quieter. The room was small but comfortable. Disconcerting to hear water bubbling in our sink (2nd floor) when neighboring rooms used their showers or bathrooms sink. Called front desk for maintenance to check on it but no one ever showed up. Complained at checkout and they happily gave us a discount on our room.
Loved the town, lots of pleasant looking young college people (Cal-Poly) enjoying the pleasant weather that evening. We felt safe walking to and from our restaurant at night.
Directions to hotel were clear and easy to follow.

Average hotel. Front desk seemed a bit indifferent to us. Close to Hearst Castle. Rate was favorable compared to some other hotels in area. Breakfast nothing special. Room we had was quiet for sleeping.

This motel is directly across from the Quality Inn and Suites, where we usually stay. There is no comparison. All they need to do is clean the place up and it would be worth the money paid for a night' stay. The carpets are filthy and the pizza stain on the bedsheets a bit off putting. There was no bath mat or signs near exits denoting stairs. The breakfast was not up to the usual Comfort Inn Standard, with cold eggs and apples that were " tired "when we arrived and even more unappetizing when we left. I would not recommend this motel to anyone until it is cleaned and repainted inside. The staff was helpful, however.

Stayed here twice before and it's okay, this time was offered an upgrade to a king suite. thats great but... two of the walls next to the bed border the elevator shaft so you get constant mechanical noise every time the elevator moves. There is a door partially blocked by the t.v. that goes out to an unusable balcony that does not have black out shades so the morning light blinds you. Room fronts Monterey street, very noisy. The wardrobe is tough to get to because of the desk and couch locations. No ice machine on the 3rd floor. This may be the nicest room in the worst location (1306) in the joint. Breakfast only goes to 9:30, I think the scrambled eggs were actually cut up sponges, everything else was good. Wifi good, many t.v. stations but no guide as to what was where.
So to recap, you go to bed early, sleep like a log, and get up with the roosters this room is great. Sleep light, sleep in, run for your life! Off season mid week rate of 62.00 hard to beat

Room Tip: get a room away from Monterey st.

Check in and check out the staff were personable and helpful. The room was on the back side away from the street (had to pay extra for the long walk). The bathroom was nearly as big as the room itself, the entry was crowded but did have the fridge and microwave as promised. We stayed one night on the way to visit family, I wouldn't have wanted to stay longer.
Breakfast was un-inspiring.

Room 2101, first floor. In order to plug my computer cord to electricity, I have to unplug the tv from the big orange extention cord as the outlets are al old and do not accommodate 3 prong...the management can fix this but they prefer not to...rooms are old but clean...you cannot open the door without slamming into the chair...light above sink is fluorescent and was so old that it did not gigve out any real light. Only one of the two bed lamps worked. The hot breakfast was HORRIBLE! Eggs were actually rubberized, sausage was so salty it was indigestible. I have stayed at many comfort in. And suites and never have I posted something this bad. Went to the front desk to give them my list of things that were not right and nobody was there. Maybe they will get this and get off their lazy duff and improve the place. Horrible.

Room Tip: Value was less than average ...I did not give it 3 points...my computer did that,
