Thank you for reviewing and staying with us.

For a budget motel this place is not only very clean (spotless bathtub & shower) but it looks to have been very nicely updated and the look inside the rooms is decidedly modern. Plus the bathrooms are HUGE! Or at least the one I had was. Granted I was upgraded to an ADA compliant room for some reason so that might have been part of the reason.

Very Expensive and not enough amenities

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Bed, price, and breakfast. Paid $200.00 for a small room, limited food, and small bed.
Location: San Luis Obispo.
I feel as if the Travelodge is overpriced and not adequate breakfast. The bed is a double(for 2 people) and had to go somewhere else and spend more money on Breakfast.. Very disappointing.

Over all satisfied with hotel and staff

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, close to shopping
Cons: small room
It was comparable to other hotels in the area. The room was smaller than anticipated, but it served its purpose. It was a really great location, close to downtown and the 101. It was quiet and the outside appearance was nice.

Close to town and yet quiet

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
The Travelodge on Monterey St. had clean comfortable rooms and was within a few blocks of downtown shopping and restaurants as well as Cal Poly campus, which we were visiting. The continental breakfast was okay and the staff helpful.

Travelodge needs to upgrade beds

This hotel was clean and well kept which I appreciated. The owners were friendly and accomodating offering me a chance to check in early. But the positive reviews stop when I tried to go to sleep. Wow, the thin pillows coupled with the stiff bed made for a challenge to have a good nights sleep. I went so far as to go and purchase a new pillow to try and upgrade the bedding myself. The beds were really very uncomfortable, very hard and what seemed to be springs coming up through the mattess. My advice is to pay a bit more and stay at one of the nicer hotels in the area, hopefully they offer a decent bed.
