Worst Experience

The room was absolutely disgusting!! Dirt around switches, mold/dirt dripping down the wall, hair around the sink, filthy floors, and staind sheets. When we decided we could no longer avoid trying to ignore the filth when we went to complain we were treated rudely by staff and were still charged 80% because we had spent 2 hours of our stay in the room. The manager was inappropriate and dismissive. I spent two hours cleaning the fixtures and disinfecting furniture, which in hindsight was stupid and I should have never even tried to make that room acceptable, no amount of clorox wipes or lysol was going to fix that disgusting room. NEVER STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!! Instead, go to Quality Inn across the street. It was an absolutely wonderful experience!!!!

Do not stay at this hotel!

Stains and hair on the blankets, dirty carpet or no carpet at all in my sister's room. Clogged toilet, and when we called the front desk about it, they sent over a person with a plunger who told us to take care of it. Between me and my two sisters we spent $900 for two nights in this dump!

Across the street from best Mexican Rest. in town!

Pros: Location. My husband was in French Hospital and the Lamplighter Inn was close and easy to get in and out of.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
Location: I am actually a local - just spending the night to be near the French Hospital. San Luis Obispo is beautiful all year round with plenty of action!
It took just moments to BOOK the room and I was immediately upgraded to a great "view" room with a king sized bed and spacious accommodations! The rooms were clean and free of cigarette smoke! Staff was pleasant and I appreciated the complimentary POP CORN they had in the lobby. Breakfast was limited, but pleasant - and plenty for me! I enjoyed the stay.

location and value

Though the room was not super clean, the location and price made it a very good value. Breakfast was much better than expected. Being right off the 101 made it very convenient as a road trip stop.

It was ok

Pros: Double room suite had plenty of room. Breakfast was good.
Cons: Mistakes happen but for customers to go 3 times is not good
Location: Downtown is a 5 minute drive.
When first arrived the girls at the front counter were nice. They were nice but not helpful. One girl had given my room key and I walked over to my room but it was the wrong door. It was already occupied. So I went back to front desk and they assigned me another room, only to find out the key wasn't working. So I went again to the third time to the front desk and she card got remagentized. Finally the key worked. I got the Double room suite. Plenty of room. It was warm when we got there. They had a small window for two rooms. It didn't help much to keep cool during the day but at night time we opened the widows. The lock on the door was broken as well. Was to tired to go back and complain. Breakfast was very good.

Hotel was decent, but it was rated 3 stars I think a 2 star hotel would be a better equivalent.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
It wasn't super clean and a little outdated... I think this hotel should be considered a 2 star though rather than a 3 star.

I can only rate this hotel as a fair place to stay

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: Poor breakfast
We found it near a ok part of town. We felt food selection was fair but limited for the restaurants in the area. We were expecting Pismo Beach and a three star hotel but felt is was not worth calling it that. The room had a slight weird order but not overwhelming or anything. We were disappointed in the very small queen size bed slightly leaning to one side. The room was clean and ok to that respect. The bathroom was small had slight sheet rock damage and needed grouting. The shower was too small to get into. It was 3x3 and had 2 small doors in the corner. I was disappointing that the room attendant didn't clean the coffee machine or leave new coffee for the second day. The breakfast very limited, offered plastic like eggs and no bagels. We didn't eat the second morning. It was a place to sleep, no other complaints.
