“Great Place To Stay in San Luis Obispo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

My family and I were guests at the Embassy Suites in San Luis Obispo during the Memorial Day Weekend and were very pleased with our accommodations. The Embassy was our home base during our travels to the San Luis Obispo area to attend the Strawberry Festival in Arroyo Grande and my kids first trip to Hearst Castle (they really enjoyed it) and I couldn't ask for a better place to stay in the area.

From the suite, to the indoor pool (my kids loved the pool), exercise area (plenty of thread mills and elliptical machines and dumbbells) to the cook to order breakfast buffet and complimentary managers reception held in the Atrium, my kids, wife and mother in law had nothing but good things to say about the hotel.

In addition, the hotel is in a great location being in a shopping plaza (Forever 21 is located there for all of the shoppers out there) and across the street from a Sports Authority, numerous restaurants to choose from and there is another shopping plaza with a Target and Dicks Sporting Goods that is with-in a mile of the hotel.

Also, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo is only 15 minutes away, a very easy drive and easy freeway access from the hotel. Oh, another nice little thing is that there is a drive in across from the hotel.

Our suite (two double queen beds and pull out sofa bed) had plenty of room for all six of us (mom, 17 y.o. daughter, 12 and 14 y.o. son's, mother in law and myself) and we never felt like we were tripping over each other. With the two T.V's in the living room and bedroom there wasn't any fighting for the remote or what TV show to watch.

When I travel for business or leisure, I usually try to stay at a Embassy Suites because I know that the product will always be kept at a high standard and you can tell the the GM, DOS, engineering and housekeeping staff really care about their hotel and once again I was not disappointed.

So if you find yourself going to the San Luis Obispo area, I highly recommend choosing the Embassy Suites San Luis Obispo because you will not be disappointed and your family will be happy.

Came on Thursday for the Farmer's Market. While it is a VERY busy hotel. The staff is on their game. The staff, on this visit truely did standout. The hotel can be a bit noisy as breakfast starts at 0630. But, my opinion, best in SLO.

I attended a week long training and stayed here for five nights. It was a very pleasant experience and of course the breakfast and the manager's reception are always nice touches. I had a room on the ground floor and it was very quiet. The hotel is at the end of a strip mall, but it was a in a good location for visiting SLO and Pismo Beach. The room was exceptionally clean and the wi-fi worked well. I also visited the gym and found it to be adequate. All in all it was a nice stay and I would stay here again if visiting the area for pleasure.

I have stayed here on 3 occasions for long weekends, and it was perfect every time. The 2-room suites are spacious, clean and quiet and include a microwave, mini-fridge and coffee maker.

This hotel is within walking distance of a park (which also has an off leash dog park), the San Luis Obispo Promenade strip mall with several chain restaurants (Tahoe Joe's Steakhouse, Applebee's, Chipotle, Taco Bell) and stores including Cost Plus World Market, Sports Authority, Bed, Bath & Beyond, See's Candy, and a Ralph's Grocery store.

The buffet breakfast is top notch with cook-to-order omelettes or scrambles made with local San Luis Obispo eggs. Fruit, muffins, pastries, coffee, tea, juice, cereal, thick cut bacon, and yogurt are also available daily. Members of the restaurant staff are very friendly, courteous and conscientious. The nightly Manager's Reception with free cocktails is a great perk.

To work off the large breakfast, I used the gym facility for the first time this trip (April 2012). It was sparkling clean and has Precor TotalBody Crossramp machines, treadmills, free weights (with a large flat screen TV on the wall), stability balls, medicine balls and mats, along with a swimming pool and small jacuzzi that would comfortably seat probably 4 people.

A farmer's market was held in the parking lot on Saturday. Vendor booths included local honey, artichokes, oranges, lavender and flowers.

We tried the Upper Crust Italian Restaurant which was a short drive away and enjoyed it. You wouldn't know it from the entrance door and its location in a strip mall by CVS pharmacy, but it has a lively atmosphere and good food. We also enjoyed Goshi Japanese Restaurant for sushi and Nova Restaurant Lounge in downtown SLO that has a patio overlooking the creek.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the elevator.

There really are so many wonderful things to do in San Luis Obispo, thank you for sharing some of your favorites!

This was our 3rd time at this property, and while it is expensive---for just two, we make a point to stay here. Rooms could use a revamp, but service can't be beat


Easy to use, off the Freeway, great bar and breakfast. We will stay there again----soon.
