San Luis Obispo Vacations

Welcome to California’s Central Coast, where the only rule is “there are no rules.” It's a place where obligations go out the window, and your only responsibility is to do as little as possible—or as much as you want. With the Santa Lucia Mountain Range in the background, this scenic town of San Luis Obispo between Los Angeles and San Francisco is where time stands still and fun moves forward. Whether you're hiking up to Bishop Peak, strolling along Pismo Beach watching sea otters feast on local clams, or challenging a wave in the surf at Montana de Oro State Park, you'll realize that boredom isn't part of the SLO vocabulary. So start searching for San Luis Obispo vacation packages, and get ready to throw all those worries into the ebbing tide.

Where Are the Best Places to Stay in San Luis Obispo?

Anywhere you stay along the Central California coast is going to be majestic, beautiful, and breath-taking. Specifically, around San Luis Obispo, your two main options for accommodations are in SLO proper, or south by the coast in Pismo Beach.

Downtown San Luis Obispo

If you are planning a family vacation in San Luis Obispo, a business trip, or are going to visit the local university, your best bet is to stay downtown. You’ll be in a central location for exploring the mountains as well as the beaches, close to the airport, and near California Polytechnic State University. If that sounds like a good home base, you might like this hotel:

  • Embassy Suites by Hilton – Thanks to a complimentary happy hour (they call it the Happiest Hour) and the Greenhouse Grill serving up inventive California cuisine, you’re never too far from finding a new favorite flavor. Start your day with a free made-to-order breakfast, then head out to explore the countryside. After a long day on the Central Coast, enjoy a great night’s sleep in your beautifully appointed guest suite so you can do it all again tomorrow.

Pismo Beach

Perhaps you are looking to get away from it all with that special someone on a romantic retreat. The quiet coast offers unparalleled seclusion for you. The Pacific can be a wonderful playground, too. Catch a wave on some of California’s most iconic surf beaches, race over the dunes in an all-terrain vehicle rental, or soar above the beach break on a parasail. Sounds like a fantastic time, right? If so, check out these hotels:

  • SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel – Maybe it’s the incredible views of the Pacific from your guestroom balcony, the property, itself, with staircases leading down the cliffs to the beach, or the hotel’s proximity to the iconic and scenic Highway 101. Then again, it’s probably a combination of the three that make the SeaCrest such a desirable destination hotel. The contemporary décor, luxurious rooms, rooftop terrace, in-room wine delivery service, and bike rentals don’t hurt, either.
  • Quality Inn – Conveniently located near the Pismo Beach Pier, the Quality Inn offers an affordable base camp for exploring the coast. Grab a free hot breakfast, make your way to the beach for a day on the sand, then cap it off with a dip in the heated outdoor pool. The shopaholic in you will appreciate the premium outlet mall next door.
  • Oxford Suites – In a perfect location central to all the area’s major points of interest, the Oxford Suites makes an ideal extended-stay solution should your vacation turn into a long-term getaway. The comfortable guestrooms and suites are complemented by a heated outdoor pool, fitness center, and affordable pricing. Included in your low price are a complimentary hot breakfast buffet, an evening happy hour reception, and in-room Wi-Fi access.
