After bike packing from Monterey after several days this hotel was clean and very comfortable plus very close to the Amtrak station. Highly recommend a stay here when in town.

Average room. Housekeeping neglected to clean my room. Microwave unplugged so didn't use it for safety reasons. Continental breakfast just OK quality. Was not asked about my stay when checking out. Will stay elsewhere next time.

Location was great. Walked to Cal Poly. Had some downtime in the evening to unwind but spa was cold. Staff tried to text maintenance but it was not to be. Water pressure in the shower was so low that it was hard to wash the soap off of your body

thanks

I was there on business. The internet wasn’t working one morning, I notified the front desk. The woman said she didn’t know how to fix it, but would call someone. I couldn’t do computer work. I went out to do some field work for my job and when I came back the internet still wasn’t working. I asked the front desk and they said their modem broke. Ok, so buy a new one! So I couldn’t finish any work that night. The next morning the internet still wasn’t working and by the time I checked out it was still out. Pretty terrible if you’re there on business. The breakfast situation was also pretty pathetic. Best option - a microwave breakfast burrito. Otherwise it’s some random packaged pastries that have no description, janky fruit or packaged oatmeal. The juice machine had 4 options, two weren’t available, but you wouldn’t know that because there wasn’t a sign telling you that. I like that they had a pool and hot tub, the hot tub with the police tape around it was especially great. That was sarcasm.

Heater/AC was the loudest I have ever heard in over 1500 hotel stays I have had over the past 30 years. Not acceptable. Coffee Pot did not work. Called front desk and a coffee pot was going to be sent by maintenance. 30 min and waiting.

I come to SLO every few months and this hotel has become my go to, when I'm there.. It's clean, nice, quiet, in a great location, and the staff are wonderful...

Very clean, friendly service, no complaints! Thank you!

Walking distance to many restaraunts. Spacious rooms

Super clean, quiet and convenient location.. And, very nice room.. The staff was wonderful as well...

Nice looking property and room and friendly staff

Iris was the best. She ensured we got the room that we wanted. Lobby was spotless and the rooms were beautiful. Having a fridge and a microwave in the room was a huge plus.

Beautiful hotel & service. Quiet & private. I return.

The bathroom was super big with 2 sinks. The room was big and comfy.

It was a nice stay. I loved the location and how close it was to downtown SLO and the beach. While it’s located on the 101, it was quiet. Super Covid 19 friendly by having sanitizer, masks, and alcohol wipes. I would stay here again. Only critique I have is the decor; my room seemed a little dark due then dark blue painted walls and carpet. Overall I would book again.

Thank you for taking the time to review us! We are so sorry you experienced water pressure issues and that maintenance wasn't able to fix the spa. We understand that is frustrating and we hope to host you again in the future to make up for your less than ideal stay.

Thank you for your response, I understand it was incredibly frustrating for the WIFI to be down, especially on an important weekend. We invite you to stay again in the future when we are able to offer our full breakfast options, and the hot tub is now open so we hope to see you soon!

Our apologies about the loud AC! We can still move you rooms since you extended your stay with us. Our apologies for the coffee pot being broken and for the delay of the new one. We are happy it worked out and you were able to enjoy fresh coffee in your room.
