The only thing that prevented the stay from being all "excellent" is the missing microwave oven that took the management 3 hours to bring to the room. Otherwise, the stay is better than expected.

Nice concept but finishes are low quality, and with time will show even more signs of wear.

Excellent room, service and location except for the lack of privacy available to our room from the outdoor patio/courtyard. the sheer draperies were not enough, and the heavy draperies do not pull all the way closed. Like I said, excellent except for this item!

Decor is certainly geared toward the college crowd. Staff was very friendly. Room had not been vacuumed after last guest. Restaurant had very few breakfast options. Beds were stiff. Not horrible but not not great either. Bedding was really nice.

Comfortable If a Little Noisy

Wanted a night away from home so headed up to SLO. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean, a welcome change after 11 weeks of mediocre hotel rooms all over the US. My only complaint would be that I was downstairs and could hear every move the guests upstairs made and the breakfast, while warm, was not very good. That said, I would still recommend this hotel to a friend. Conveniently located right off the highway and near downtown it was worth what I paid for the night.
