Great stay!

The room (mostly the bed) looked great online, but I tried not to set my expectations too high.... See full review

Clean, Comfortable Room with good location

This is the second time I have been here. This is not a 4-5 star hotel but it is clean, comfortable, affordable and one can walk to downtown. I also enjoy the free breakfast.

overpriced

The hotel was fine. That's all, just fine. I really think paying over $200 a night, after taxes, is too much for a very basic, fairly old hotel.

I stayed at better 3 stars hotels.

Room okay but I've stayed at better 3 star hotels then this one. It's old but they have done some fixing up. Pillows were to spongy.

Great place to stay in San Luis Obispo

We stopped for an overnighter in SLO on our way from Los Angeles to Santa Cruz. Hotel clerk Taz was very friendly and helpful - even pointing us in the direction of a few good vegetarian restaurants within walking distance. The motel is easy to get to from the 101, very close to downtown, and the rooms are nice and clean. Parking was easy, both check-in and check-out were quick, we enjoyed the free breakfast - it was a good stay. The price was a bit more than I'd like to pay for this type of motel, but it was as reasonably-priced as anything else in the area.

Great value!

Although it's about a mile walk to get downtown, this hotel was perfect for the price. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, and the view of the mountains nearby was beautiful!

did it once

Front desk guy (Raz?) is helpful, friendly, competent - not so sure about the rest of establishment. Everything is kinda tired and in need of remodeling. Arrived for breakfast: no coffee, no spoons, no fruit. Hot tub was warm, pool looked clean but folks told us it was too cold to use (we didn't try it). Beds were not real comfortable, towels were thin and worn.

Downtown SLO has a Farmer's Market every Thursday - the whole town shows up. It's huge. It was a happening place to be.

dissapointed

normally best westerns are very nice this hotel however is lacking, if its rated a one or 2 star , that would be more appropriate , for the amenities and overall hotel experience.

Comfortable place in SLO

The rooms are very comfortable and clean. In room coffee, refrigerator, and breakfast with hard boiled eggs and fresh waffles is a great value. Nice location very close to Cal Poly makes this a great choice for families of students in town for a visit. This is our second stay, and we'll be back.
