Room was dirty and there were bugs crawling in the bathroom. Staff was uninformed and did not seem to care.

We enjoyed the heated pool, although it wasn't that warm. Room was noisy with people above us especially

Great family friendly place, close to downtown

Liked the lobby, patio and bar area decor. Nice reception staff. Bartender had no personality; felt like I was imposing on him. Pool was dirty. Hot tub has no jets. Room was nothing special. Carpets were filthy and stained - just horrible. Made me wonder if they clean the toilets and showers. Way over-priced for what you get.

Clean and comfortable. A bit noisy from the first floor. Friendly staff.

Super cute hotel that’s super clean and great staff. Great price point as well!

Nice stay was able to check in early. Room was nice and clean. Will definitely stay again .

Great location near Cal Poly and downtown plenty of parking nice restaurant on premises

Great location, modern and clean at a reasonable price and the staff is super friendly.

This hotel used to be a Holiday inn that wasn’t all that nice. After the change in ownership and a really nice refresh, the Kinney is much improved over what it used to be. I would definitely recommend it!

This is our go to hotel when staying in SLO. Great rooms, great public areas, and the staff is always friendly and attentive.

The walls were thin and you can hear everything around you. Doors were slamming at 2 in the morning.
