Not near airport

Hotel is getting a bit run down, as the area immediately around it also seems to be. Also, we booked it looking for a hotel near the airport, but it really was not.

no surprises

Stayed at hotel after Big West basketball game at Cal Poly. Nothing especially good or bad about the room, what is expected for the price. Wifi speed was good. At hotel is a nice surprise of a cajun-style diner ... excellent cajun dishes at a reasonable price

Just "Nice"

There's nothing that stands out as fabulous about this hotel, but it was perfect for our needs. It was nice to have a mini fridge and micro in the room. It's in a good location within walking distance of downtown and there are a number of fast food places really close.

Less than par hotel

Too much noise from the street. Chips in door frames, sink drain very blocked, water in shower went very cold when someone else used water, bad coffee. However, it was clean and registration service was OK. Overall, didn't seem woth the price. Hotels across the street half the price.

Located close to Cal Poly

It was a nice place. My 10 year old son and I were visiting my daughter for the weekend, she attends Cal Poly. The hotel is close to campus and downtown.

Ramada Inn

Although an OK walk to downtown, it was too close to freeway on ramp, getting out of motel parking lot through on ramp traffic was dicey. Didn't hear freeway though so it was quiet enough. It was OK for just passing through town for one night.

Not the best... try Ramada Monterrey

I enjoyed sightseeing at the Madonna Inn, eating at Yanagi Sushi, and touring nearby Morro Bay. But the hotel day staff was not friendly... refused to give me Ramada Reward points for my two night stay because I booked my stay on Orbitz instead of directly with Ramada. The worst was the housekeeping service was not good... refrigerator uncleaned, desk near bed was sticky from food residue left by previous guest. Hope the situation is rectified in the future. The night clerk was more helpful in getting me a bath towel and cleaning the room. The dining choices around the hotel were limited to fast food and an expensive Japanese sushi place... so I went downtown and found Yanagi Sushi which is excellent!

Don't settle for restaurants within walking distance. The drive to Yanagi Sushi is worth the effort.
