everything perfect...but they may want to re-evaulate the only queen sized bed deal. Could fit a king--- with bedstands attached to wall. Did a great design job in the the relativeley small space they had to work with. Staff, location, town could not have been better!

I love this hotel! One of the older buildings in SLO beautifully renovated. The rooms are small but beautifully appointed. Room 13 is my favorite-spacious with a balcony overlooking Morro Street. I have stayed here multiple times and am never disappointed.

I am a full-time travel agent from Ventura. I surprised my husband for his 25th birthday and took him to the Granada for the weekend. We stayed in the deluxe studio at the front of the building. Such a charming property and great location for exploring! The receptionist was SO kind...offered us wine upon arrival and later brought up chocolates... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the Granada Hotel during the Cal Poly Graduation weekend. Everything was top notch. The upstairs patio really added to the living space and festive atmosphere of the occasion. It was great to be able to walk to all the downtown restaurants and shops. We'll be back!

I appreciate this hotel because I liked the convience of the location and the fact that it felt more upscale, in comparison to other hotels in San Luis Obispo. The outdoor terrace was comfortable and quite a treat. The rooms are VERY small and the shower is basically in your room. So, if you are someone who is modest or... More

If you are looking for something a bit more edgy, then this is the place. The hotel itself is small and very well decorated (think brick walls, iron furnishings). The bistro itself was also pretty cool and a nice place to get a cocktail and a bite to eat. The rooms were a bit small (ala new york city) but... More
