Good Value

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
I seem to end up in San Luis Obispo a lot, and there are times I just want a clean, decent room that doesn't feel overpriced. This place definitely fits the bill. Maybe not the place I go for romantic getaways, but the staff was great, the room was quiet and it was convenient. For this trip, it was just what I was looking for.

Our room was pretty run down.

Pros: near cal poly
You get what you pay for came to mind for this room. I think it would be better to spend a little extra and stay at the Sands Inn Hotel and Suites. That is our favorite place but was booked for that weekend.

The lady that check us in was not friendly at all. If this is an isolated case, I can understand.

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: Noisy
When we check in, we were not greeted properly. I am presuming the lady was in the middle of dinner and was in a hurry. About two o'clock in the morning we heard men talking loud in the parking lot which wake us up. The room was spacious and clean. Thank you.

Location is key

Location is key, otherwise, its merely a place to sleep and shower. The rooms are neat but dated. The bathroom facilities were sub-standard. The space is so small that the door just clears the toilet upon entry. The walls looked like they were stained from previously wiped clean mildew build-up, and the toilet doubles for the only area to set your change of clothing or other essentials while taking a shower. The shower was clean, the water hot and the pressure was fine, so no complaints with that aspect of the bathroom. The staff did their job, but no more, no less. Next time to SLO I intend to seek out other places, but would stay again if I was unsuccessful finding availability elsewhere.

You Pay For

For a lower priced motel in San Luis Obispo, this wasn't too bad. The room was dated, but fairly clean and the bathroom was decent. Olive Street is something of a freeway on ramp, so the traffic noise was above average. The staff was uniformly unfriendly and terse - but what can you expect at this price range. If I were to do this again, I'd plan ahead and pay a bit more for a real 3 star hotel.

Very Nice Time

Nothing Fancy, but clean, quiet and right near downtown San Luis Obispo, Highway 101 and many inexpensive places to shop & eat. Staff was very friendly and accommodated our request for extra towels. Very good for the priced!

Okay stay

The office clerk was nice. The sheets were clean, but were cheap and scratchy. The bedside tables were dusty, as well as the corners of the room. Fortunately, we didn't spend much time in the room. I guess you get what you pay for! the area is safe enough, with good access to the freeway. I won't stay here again tho. Too itchy for me! Next time, I'll save my pennies and get a nicer place. _rp
