Good location but hotel was very average

The location was good - close to the highway and not too far from downtown (although it would be a long walk so you'd still have to drive). The hotel was very average though. Breakfast wasn't great, refrigerator didn't work in our room. It seemed expensive for the quality of the hotel

Just Okay

The hotel clerk was not very friendly, there were stains on the carpet, and one pincher bug in the restroom. I am assuming the stains were from pets because I had to sign a waiver that I would not sneak pets in and the clerk directly asked me if I had a pet. Everything else was just okay. The bed was comfortable, and we were pleased that the room had a microwave and fridge. The bathroom lights were on a motion detection system that seemed convenient in the middle of the night. The bedspread was the typical thin kind that you find at this sort of hotel but seemed newer like it had been replaced recently. The location was very convenient since the hotel is very close to the 101 freeway. It is also near a gas station and a quaint restuarant that we enjoyed a beautiful breakfast at. Overall it wasn't too bad. It felt and smelled cleaned despite the stains and the bug that probably crawled up through the bathroom drain pipe. You get what you pay for so I pretty much expected these things.

An average two star

This place in in a nice area and it's really easy to get to. We were only there for a night but it's a good deal when you don't need much more than somewhere to sleep.

Super8 not SuperGreat

Front desk manager was stingy on towels and said he would charge us extra. We had 4 in a room and 1 set of towels was dirty and only 3 sets of towels to the room. he gave me two more with attitude. Motel needs upgrades. Sink nasty, towels need renewed, just old and run down. Not staying here again. But was close to CalPoly which is why we picked it. Not sure what's up with SLO hotel prices. Ridiculous.

Super 8 needs help

Our room was at the far end of the building,you might think that would have favorable.At 11:30pm I was woken up by a loud constant noise. I contacted the manager and waited to see if the noise would stop. At midnight I contacted the manager again. He told me he stood outside our room and did not hear anything. He stated I could leave, I could call the police, but until I identifed the problem he could do nothing. At 12:15am I put on clothes and step outside. I went down stairs one level and quickly observed the room below us with lights on and the TV on. I returned to my room and called the manager and gave him the information about the room below.He called back in a few minutes after contacting offending room. It took at least an additional 15 minutes to quiet down. I turned in my key at 9:30 am and departed.

Family trip

My husband and I were there for a family trip and chose this hotel. When we got to the room it was extremely small. I immediately noticed no fridge. I started looking around and found a fridge and microwave in a closet. When I opened the fridge it wasn't even on. We stayed for a total of two days and by the last day the fridge was barely cold enough. There was also no parking. I had to park four blocks alway from the hotel. The trip was definitely not worth what I paid!

Poor customer service!

Pool has been filled in with cement. The television reception was terrible;lousy stations.Breakfast items were not fresh.The power would go out when I used the blow dryer.The towels were thin and really needed to be replaced. When we would try to call the front desk,we couldn't get through.The only good thing about this motel is the location.

Great Location

I needed a place that was close to the university and down town. This was the perfect hotel. Friendly staff, clean room, and quiet during the night. The only thing that could have been better was the smell of the room. It smelled like my son's room. Overall, I was happy I stayed here.

ok, with a couple of issues

The door to my room was open upon my arrival at 11:30 at night (probably an oversight from the cleaning crew, but a little disconcerting nonetheless). I left a Do Not Disturb sign on the door, but returned to a cleaned-up room anyway. It's a little bit of a walk from downtown, but not bad if you're one who likes to walk (downtown is pretty compact anyway). It's one of several hotels in a block radius, and is freeway close. The breakfast buffet is fairly limited, but will get you through. If you do not like stairs, ask for a room toward the front end of the hotel, otherwise, there's no way to avoid them.
