One night stay

Had good lighting over the sink area for appling makeup and I like the sink being separate from the shower & toilet. This place worked well for our one night stay.

Average

Very average hotel. Clean, lots of parking, and easy access. Perfect if you need a place to sleep close to down town.

Flawed with a few good points

The hotel was centrally located to points of interest near Morro Bay and Pismo beach. The rooms were clean but the mattress was extremely hard & uncomfortable. The room was not properly configured for easy TV viewing . Overall satisfactory standards.

1 Star Is Generous. Very Disappointed.

We were wine tasting and decided to stay in SLO since we haven't stayed there before. Awesome city, horrible Ramada. The only good thing is the location as we could walk to restaurants a few blocks away. The room was extremely loud since the walls were paper thin. The pool was a joke. The breakfast was a joke. The shower randomly went from warm, to freezing, to boiling every 3 minutes. Oh, and there was mold growing in the tub. Don't waste your time.

My stay at the Ramada Inn SLO

Hotel was neat & clean but the room did have a faint smell of mildew. Pillows were very soft. Bed was fairly comfortable. For the amount of time spent in room (very little) not too bad. Exterior & interior of hotel looks & feels more like a motel than a hotel.

Cold Water

The hotel room was clean and the heater worked fine. However, at peak shower time (8:00 am to 10:00 am) there was no hot water. I quess the water heater is a shared type and it was empty. After waiting for about a half hour I just took a cool shower. Thank goodness for the working room heater.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

The shopping required a short drive which would have been fine, but there is no exit for the hotel going north. It was a nightmare to find. Helpful hint would be to make sure you are north of olive drive before you get on the freeway that way you would go south on the freeway to get to the Santa Rosa exit.

quiet, clean

it was just the next motel on our trip, but was very nice, quiet and we slept well. they have a water fountain by the street front of the building - but it's sound was also acceptable; stuff is kind, a New Orleans style resto just in front, with reasonable prices, - a good place for travellers.
