Expensive stay for a cheap place. Small room looks old. Queen bed sags in the middle. But it's well lit. Bathroom was far too small. No place for toiletries and not even a hook on the door. Corroded metal, peeling paint, dirty grout, and stained bathtub. I almost never give a one or 2 star rating, but I will never stay here again. It was a lot of money for a bad experience.
I visited their properties twice this month; Stayed across the street at their sister property, the Villa Motel in a "Suite" (reasonable size for 2), and the Los Padres Motel a week later-Room 3. Both properties need to redux their bathroom's in these rooms... Great prices, but...otherwise, conveniently located to walk downtown!
Have stayed at Los Padres quite a few times over the last few years. Vir keeps a wonderful place to stay at and enjoy beautiful SLO. Rooms are impeccable. The entire experience is completely top notch. Next time you might be traveling to SLO give Los Padres a try and I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed
This place is barely a motel, it’s just a run down apartment complex with the kitchens gutted out to make space for extra beds. It’s overpriced, any savings you think you are making staying here because it’s barely cheaper than other options is not worth it. It’s dirty, loud, and the wifi is the worst. I heard every word the people in next room said all night long. There are massive cracks in the walls. Their super econo lightbulbs font even turn off all the way and have a sickly orange glow all night. There were mosquitos flying around. The front desk is fused to the side of over stuffed garages with blaring TV’s in them. I felt like I had to crash at a pal’s trash studio apartment. They do less than the bare minimum here. Do yourself a favor and skip this place.
Came into town later than anticipated and all hotels were wanting $300 + for the night and I was told nobody had rooms left. I know we became a bit desperate but we were charged $290 for the night.This wouldn't have been so bad if the room had been ok. However the door had a manky bit of stained glass in it and was ill fitting and in need of replacement. Inside was straight out of the 80s it can't have been touched since then dirty chipped paint a massive old tv with rubbish picture, the curtain wanted throwing away and there was an old iron with no ironing board ??? The table and chairs must have come from the local dump nobody else would want them especially a hotel. I can't begin to describe the curtain in the bathroom it was disgusting. The thing was a piece of material about a foot square how much would it cost to replace it just shows the owners don't care. Everything about this place is outdated, unloved and they charged $290 for it don't waste your money.…
Very affordable place to stay within walking distance of the centre of San Luis Obispo. The building is pretty old but reasonably clean (except for the hair in the bath tub drain!) It seems they’re closing for renovations which are clearly much needed but we found the place to be everything we needed for our one night stay passing through.
Well, this is definitely a motel where you get what you pay for. The room's very small, the pole to open blinds was missing, shower head looked like it came from dollar store, touch up repairs in room looked like they were done by a child, base board at room door was dirty but couldn't tell if it was mold, electrical sockets not accessible, and iron with no ironing board. Please don't think that I stay at 5 star hotels because I don't. I've stayed at my fair share of motels like the Lone Oak in Monterey, Ca. and the Larian in Tombstone, Az. The owners of Los Padres can learn from them. Will not be staying here again.
We stayed here for 1 night traveling with a car. Check-in and check-out was fast and without issues. Plenty of parking on the premises. Location is good with 10-15 minute walk to the central SLO area. Room quality disappointed as bed sheets, towels and pillow sheets had stains from prior guests. Bathroom was old. TV did not work. Decent budget option, but rooms need improvement.
Two of us arrived late and the staff was so nice in helping us figure out parking, getting into our room, etc. Our room was very roomy with two beds and a large bath. There is a very cute coffee shop/gallery next door for a latte in the morning. Highly recommend if you are looking for a low key place!
It's a little quirky. The motel itself is pretty basic, no frills, but it was fine for me as I as traveling alone. I was just looking for a clean and safe place to sleep. Things are a little worn around the edge, but it's just like my very lived-in home. I also love that it's right next to the art gallery/bakery so you can just stumble next door to get morning pastries. And it's in walking distance to downtown. The location is just PERFECT. I was blown away by the customer service of the proprietor though. I had car trouble. My car alarm was blaring and I could not figure out what to do (luckily it was the early evening and not the middle of the night!) He could see I was quite unnerved and helped me by disengaging the battery until AAA could come. He could see that I did not know what to do and he really went out of his way to be helpful. He really helped settle my nerves. I met his wife and their two children. Such a lovely family. I definitely plan on going back! I'm a little dismayed though because he said that the owners were planning on selling in the near future. That would be such a sad loss.…
