What travelers to San Luis Obispo are saying

San Luis Obispo hotels

The Central Coast town of San Luis Obispo is a popular vacation destination because of its beaches and parks, historic buildings, and cultural venues like the Children's Museum, the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, and the Palm Theatre that showcases indie, art-house films, as well as mainstream movies. When it comes to hotels, San Louis Obispo has great variety, including budget suites, bed and breakfasts, and luxury options like the San Luis Creek Lodge.

San Luis Obispo Quick Picks and Tips


The Alex Madonna Expo Center regularly hosts community events, including the California Festival of Beers and the annual Fall Home Show, as well as dances, concerts, and trade shows.


Downtown restaurants are close to many San Luis Obispo hotels. Enjoy upscale wine country dining at the elegant Koberl at Blue on Monterey Street. The Famous Splash Cafe, a favorite among locals, is famous for its chowder bowls and desserts.

Major Point of Interest

Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa was built in 1772, and is still a functioning Catholic mission with a museum inside. Stroll the grounds of the Dallidet Adobe and Gardens, an adobe-style historic home on Pacific Street.


Visitors to San Luis Obispo hotels can find new and vintage music, books and toys at quirky shops like Boo Boo Records, Dr Cain's Comics and Tom's Toys.


Montana de Oro State Park is popular among rock climbers, hikers, campers, and mountain bike enthusiasts. Also visit the park museum and nature center, or play a round of golf either one of the two golf courses on the park grounds.
