Very cheap

With a little effort this place could be a lot better. The manager was very helpful but the place wasn't very clean. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean . It was cheap but grubby,cigarette holes in the blanket. One night was enough. Just passing through. Breakfast was coffee and a small muffin. It's tucked away so it's easily missed before returning to the freeway.

100% disgusting

Bates motel was the first thing that came to mind when we pulled up. The room had a horrible stench when we walked in, the curtains weren't on all the way, the lamps had rips in the lamp shades the paint job looked like a 3 year old did it. The carpet was filthy we kept our shoes on the guest whole time. I went to use the restroom and there was hair on the sink, in the shower as well. The towels had stains on them and where ripped up. We then left to try and enjoy our day after our long drive and before going back to the hotel stopped and bought Lysol, febreeze and baby wipes. Sprayed down our entire room took the comforter off along with the 99cent store sheet and under blanket. I used our beach towels and laid them on the bed so we had a clean area. I threw the pillows off the bed because they were a disgusting yellow color and didn't want to get lice. I was lucky enough to have had my friend bring a little sleeping bag I was able to lay in to try and keep warm. In the middle of the night I did feel something crawling on my hand and killed it. When we woke up from what little sleep we got I did see a bug the size of an aphid on the bed not sure if it was a flea or what immediately got up to get our stuff in the car and leave. When rolling up the sleeping bag we did find a cockroach on the outside of it. We decided to leave our beach towels we slept on when we saw a dead cockroach on one. We didn't even shower there. I would never recommend this place to anyone and am disappointed that .... even has this hotel on their site. I will not be using this site again

Condition of motel

I could not believe that your company would suggest staying at this terrible motel. If I could rate it lower than ONE Star I would. I checked into the motel went to the room and immediately checked out of the place. You should take this property off your list of places to stay. I would not use your services again because of this motel. I stayed at a motel just half a block away. It was a name brand property. Also, plane reservations and auto were fine. Thank you.

Sleazy Dump

I got my reservation, paid for my room, then when I get there, they tell me they sold my room, and I have to pay an upcharge for a better room. I get my key, go to open the door to my room, and somebody is already in there. Then they tell me the people in my room were supposed to be in the next room, but both rooms have the same key. So they give me the room next door, that the people in my room were supposed to be in (with the same key). They were only there for a couple hours though, and didn't spend the night.... DON"T STAY HERE!!!!!

Your basic needs only

The hotel location was conveniently located to the freeway and many eating place which I think was its major highlight. The room was clean. The bed needed help as it sagged in the middle. I brought it to the attention of the staff but nothing was done about except "we will look at it tomorrow". The pool was closed for renovation. Overall a basic place to stay but would not stay again. Will pay extra money for a better place next time.

Homestead Motel

Location was good. 10 minute drive to the beach. Hotel Management nice -- provided extra towels. Bathroom sink did not have hot water, but shower did have hot water. Floors FILTHY -- must wear shoes in the room--otherwise, you will have black feet. Recommended only as a "place to crash".

My experience

We had two rooms. When we got there the manager said I had canceled one of my rooms and was complaining about loosing money,etc. I told him I had my paperwork in the car showing my reservations and how I had canceled one room and booked another because the guy I booked with had me down for one king bed in one of the rooms and I had asked for 2 queens as I didn't want to sleep with my Mom. There weren't enough towels in the rooms and the rooms smelt with a cleaning or musty smell. We were going to stay 3 nites and went home the morning after the 2nd nite and didn't stay the 3rd nite. I went to turn my keys in and no one was at the desk and I rang the bell and no one came to help me. The sign had the AM and PM but no times that the manager would be there.I left the keys on the desk behind the counter and left.....never to return.... This place was a big stepdown from a Motel 6...Thew place was very noisy both nites we were there...the bathrooms needed work and the tubs were not good....I wouldn't have taken a bath in them. Right by the freeway and very noisy.

Don't do it

Graduation day at CalPoly and everything was booked. I think they count on that. Large rooms, yes. Clean? No. Comfortable? Definitely not. (I have never seen a thinner pillow) Everything was falling apart. If we were not totally exhausted and knew everything else was booked, we would have left. Don't pull into the hard to find driveway, just go somewhere else. Maybe sleep in the park...

DO NOT STAY IN HOMESTEAD MOTEL, DIRTY !

It says in there front page "Stay with us at Homestead Motel in beautiful San Luis Obispo Ca. Clean, comfortable accomodations" that advertisement is a lie..false advertisement. DO NOT BELIEVE THAT EDVERTISEMENT. We were surprised. When we opened our room, it was scary to go in, everything is dirty, they never vacuum the carpet, the are holes on the carpets. they never did dusting because spider webs everywhere. Holes on the walls. Pillows and sheets are dirty. Furnitures are rotten and broken. Doors are broken and ripped apart. We had to use a little towel for a holder. Air conditioning/heater is not working, it was so cold, it's like we were inside a freezer. There's a rusty dirty microwave in the room including a rusty dirty refrigerator. We didn't use the motel blanket, we used our own blanket that we brought from home. There's a tag or graffiti inside a drawer. There's blood mark on the wall. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE (HOMESTEAD MOTEL IN SAN LUIS OBISPO). It was a nightmare. Why we stayed in this place because the teacher from our kid's school reserved that place. We should have known and we could have done our own reservation somewhere else. I feel sorry for the other students that stayed in that place and of course for us too. I don't know who checks the conditions of the motels and hotels, they should close HOMESTEAD MOTEL because they are cheating visitors, guests of that town. For short...WHATEVER YOU DO...DO NOT STAY IN HOMESTEAD MOTEL IN SAN LUIS OBISPO. Don't tell us that we didn't alarm you. DO NOT STAY HERE....DO NOT STAY HERE....DO NOT STAY HERE....DO NOT STAY HERE....DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU WANT TO ENJOY YOUR GOODNIGHT SLEEP............so all the photos you see for their advertisement for their hotel looks descent but if you're already there, you will regret it.
