I liked that there was room enough in the beds for four people, And that the bathroom looked fairly newly remodeled, and I liked having the refrigerator and microwave. Free parking was great, and the flowers around the building were very pretty.
The room is for four people, and there was only one chair for the table. I’m glad the room was no smoking, but other guests were smoking feet away from their room doors, so I wasn’t comfortable opening the window for fresh air. It would be nice if there was a designated smoking area, far from the motel room windows.
It was cheap and located close to the college and downtown San Luis Obispo.
It needs some TLC, missing light bulbs, slightly torn curtain, bathtub tiling done very poorly.
Great value for the price! Amazing Location
It was within walking distant of downtown in a safe area with a gorgeous view of the mountains. For the price we paid I wasn't expecting much, but was very pleased to get a clean room, free wifi and breakfast in the morning! That's more than some nicer hotels I've stayed in. Highly recommend staying here if you're not looking for a luxury experience, just quiet, clean rooms.
For the Budget Traveler
This is literally the cheapest hotel in the area, literally. There were at least 3 other hotels within spitting distance, but this one is the least expensive. It was fine for a quick stopover in SLO but I wouldn't recommend spending your vacation here. It's definitely a budget hotel but it was clean, warm and safe. As long as you have a decent buzz and a good sense of humor this place will do just fine. The bed was firm, the pillows were soft and the water was hot. Contrary to other reviews, the heater worked. The remote however, did not.
We were placed in a handicapped equipped room, though neither of us have a disability. Overall it was ok but the shower was laughable at about 4 ft high and poor drainage. The bathroom was practically flooded by the time I finished splashing water on myself. But the water was hot.
last minute motel
location is convenient, breakfast was acceptable even it was small portions a 1/4 of a muffin, cereal, milk, oj, and coffee.
room has a smell, poor maintenance, handicapped room when we are not in that need.
Good size room.
The bed is too soft. The pillow too small. The so-called "continental breakfast" is very symbolic and cheap. I would rather they don't offer that so we don't count on their breakfast.
Convenient for travelers, just out of highway
The carpeted floor of the hotel is very dirty, rather disgusting. The room was fair.
Rooms were very old and felt dirty and dingy. The rooms stunk horribly. I'd expect a hotel like this to be $45/night at the most.
lots of great food within walking distance. And about a 10 minute walk to Downtown SLO.
A peaceful and quiet hotel with everything in order. Friendly and helpful staff.
not much --it took 3 tries to get a key that worked. the room dan opened shampoo bottles in the shower, cigarette burns in the sink.
Top shower probably borrowed from a strip mining company. Short walk into town where there are plenty of bars and resturaunts.
Very mean breakfast (coffee and a cake). No double glazing, and right next to the freeway, so no need for a morning call. Cold with a very small and noisy heater.
We needed a cheap hotel to sleep at while visiting friends in San Luis and winetasting in Paso. For how cheap the hotel was, we were worried what the hotel would be like- but it was just fine. It had a good location- only a $5 cab ride from downtown bars and its right across the street from a Jack in the Box and Taco Bell, for late night snacks.
It was a huge room with a big King bed. It was on the 2nd level so no upstairs noise.
Location seemed a little seedy where we were. Very few/no lights on the walkway to our room. There was an ant problem! Our bathtub had ants so that was a little awkward and uncomfortable.
