Nice value for SLO

Good size room, nice and clean. TV was pretty small, and they don't have any real breakfast. The Apple Farm is right across the street so that helps. Bed very comfortable. I will be staying here again.

Pretty Good Experience!

My husband and I went on a short anniversary getaway for the weekend and since it was a spur of the moment trip this was one of the most affordable hotels available, I thought it was gonna be like a motel 6 but, I was wrong. It was pretty clean and the staff was friendly. The concierge was nice enough to recommend an awesome steak place...F. McClintocks in downtown SLO...omg!! Steak was the best!!!

Weekend

After a long drive it was nice to check-in in a clean comfortable hotel. The front desk person was very nice. The area seems safe and parking is not an issue, it's all good. One comment, no hd tv and few channels to chooose from, aside from that, we had a good zzzzz. We are happy camper!

We went to pismo beach, in the downtown area, it's nice to just walk around and a lot of casual dining places to go. Try Splash Cafe, the line was long, they also have one in Monterey, SLO. It was fun and also there's an outlet stores in pismo.

Good value

We stayed here for one night passing through SLO on our PCH roadtrip. It was clean with good sized rooms and lots of facilities. There is a little gym with a treadmill, a stepper and a cycling machine and the pool was just big enough for a little exercise. the hottub needed a good clean out though. Overall I'd recommend this for a stop off, a little walk from town but good value for money.

Go to Novo in town for dinner and dancing in their creekside garden. Lovely food, good atmosphere and really cool garden dancefloor.

Excellent Location

The close proximity to Cal Poly, the freeway, nice restaurants, and downtown is wonderfully convenient. The staff is also quite accommodating (I had a couple questions, and they addressed them efficiently and accurately), and the continental breakfast is solid.

perfectly fine

We stayed here one night to tour Cal Poly. It was close to campus (walking distance), clean, and quiet. Also provided a nice continental breakfast.

Rm. Next to Soda Machine - Not Good!

I guess someone has to occupy the rm. next to the soda machine - I just wish it hadn't been my sister and her guest!
