A nice stopping point on your way north especially if you are visiting Hearst Castle the next day. (Its about 45 minutes drive up CA1). This hotel is ready for a major redo. Its noisy and a bit dirty but its a fav due to location. Staff was helpful and friendly.

My family was driving for a long weekend in Santa Cruz. To break up the drive we decided to stay a night in San Luis Obispo, visit my wife's college, and eat at the Thursday night farmers market.

With two teenage boys, the extra room of a suite was appreciated. The hotel was simple, but clean and well maintained.

We indulged ourselves with the evening happy hour and our bottomless pit teenage boys devoured the free breakfast. These were much appreciated extras and we took full advantage.

The location was a bit away from town, and I would prefer to stay closer to the action, but for us it was fine. There was plenty of parking and we look out on a green field and not the nearby freeway.

We only spent one night, but it was a nice place to stop, refresh and travel on.

This hotel is the best place for a whole family to stay in one suite and have plenty of space to do what they want. The indoor lounge is great too. And the huge breakfast takes care of lunch as well. The complementary drinks at the bar from 5:30-7:30 is great as well.

Each year I have a business/vacation trip to San Luis Obispo, when I try to stay in a different hotel each time. Last year I stayed at the Marriott Courtyard, which was very nice, but decided to try Embassy Suites this year. The bed and bathroom were comparable to the Courtyard, except you get a sitting area and a pullout sofa in a separate room. The decor and carpet were nice but a bit dated. The bed was comfortable, the towels nice, and the soaps were excellent. One reason I chose this hotel was because of its location. It's near the center of the city toward the rear of a shopping center, so you are within a short drive to the sights and within walking distance to lots of chain stores and restaurants. Something else I really liked were the free breakfasts and happy hour. While the breakfasts are not unusual for a hotel this size, free drinks and appetizers for about two hours every evening in the spacious lounge area were quite a treat. One observation I must make has to do with all the children running around in the open areas. Some singles and couples seeking quiet time may be disappointed by the commotion and chatter of the kids. But overall, the hotel room itself was above average in comparison to other large chains I've stayed in around SLO, and the location and the cocktails, in my book, make it very good and a good bargain.

My husband and I recently went up to SLO for a nice relaxing weekend. We had previously stayed at another Embassy Suites in Lompoc which turned out to be very nice..but this one even better!!!!!!!!!! Beautiful indoor setting for the complimentary free breakfast buffet and the cooked to order station...the food was great. In the evening they set up the bar in same area for free HH drinks and snacks..Was all very very nice. Had a great suite...very comfortable and so much room!! I highly recommend to anyone going in that area to stay there!! The staff was very very hospitable and took care of any needs we had. Perfect!!!!!!
