This is a motel so don't expect hotel amenities . That being said the rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Recommend staying on second floor as it sounds like foot traffic would be heard below. We stayed one night on our way home from camping in Big Sur. They have a pool and jacuzzi which was a nice bonus. Breakfast... More

Upon entering the room, I was glad that they had turned the air cinditioning on. It was very refreshing. The room was very clean, updated and spacious. Housekeeping was exellent. Breakfast was good, consisted of waffles, boiled eggs, pastries and cereals. Lobby was open in the evening for hot cocoa. The pool area was also spacious and updated. Will definitely... More

We stayed at this Inn so we could visit the college campus SLO. When we checked in the office staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and smelled fresh like they just cleaned it. The breakfast they offered in the morning was just enough, cereal, waffles, french toast, fruit, muffins etc... I am a coffee snob... More

This was a good deal at $80 on a Thursday in mid May for the really fun market. It was our best motel in SLO in several. We were given a room upgrade upon arrival by the friendly girl on reception which was nice. There is a pool and spa at the rear but it was too cold to try... More

Clean, well equipped quiet motel about 20 minutes walk from downtown, although there are plenty of eating places nearby. Very friendly staff, good sized swimming pool and spa in a very well looked-after area at the back of the property. A good continental breakfast was served. Nice location with hills visible and we even saw a hummingbird while in the... More

The title of this review is about the best I can do. The staff was accommodating, but it took three or four calls to get an effective reply to our complains of excessive noise above us on the second floor. It sounded like a gymnasium for adults and children. If you stay here in this nicely renovated 60's style motel--stay... More

My family and I had an excellent experience with the management of this hotel. Specifically, Gayle the General Manager, went above and beyond for my family. I called Gayle with a few days notice of my daughter's upcoming stay, wanting to make it a special occasion, her birthday. I requested to pay for a night of her 2-day stay, but... More

The room was simple and spacious, but not very well lit. We had a king bed whose sheets probably had cleaner days. The TV had a large selection of channels. The bathroom was small but clean and shower amenities were provided. The room's heating system was broken (but fortunately it was not too cold or warm in general). Free wifi... More

For the price this was a great stop. Comfortable, very clean, modern rooms, great beds, and the hot tub was a great perk after a long day's drive. The management was friendly and the complimentary breakfast had an awesome selection. Loved this place!!!
