We booked this the day before and were relatively pleased with it. For the amount of money we paid we couldn't find fault. The room was a fair size, it was clean. The bed was ok. It had free wifi but was very hit & miss. The only negative thing I could say was the "included breakfast" was shocking n...

When we booked this hotel, we expected budget to mean a no frills, cheap and cheerful place. We had no high expectations of luxury, but we were shocked at the room we were given. The bed linen was make-up stained, the bathroom was dirty, with mouldy, broken tiles around the shower and an enormous plunger behind the toilet (we presumed...

Check-in was smooth and easy but our room had a funky smell to it. Water pressure could have been stronger and the towels were like sandpaper. WiFi is available but it gets weak the farther away from the lobby your room is. It's fine for checking emails and browsing, but you might have trouble streaming anything. But, for less than...

At check in, we confirmed 3 guests. The clerk gave me one key and was put off that I'd ask for a second. Our room had no lampshades on the lamps. I called the front desk to get lampshades, & point out we got the room this way. We barely got him in the room to look, "Can't now. I...

The only reason I give this a poor rating is because I booked 1 night at this place through booking.com. I always have a great experience with booking.com and I'm not blaming them for this situation but the hotel. Booking.com with most hotels is you pay at check-in and cash or CIC without it being pre-paid, so at check-in I...

We stayed at this motel in Nov of 2014 while on a road trip driving up the coast. We booked with this place last minute bc we really didn’t know how far we were going to make it the first day. When we got checked in, I realized instantly why this was the only place in SLO with availability that...

I was taking an impromptu trip to southern California and I was done driving and just wanted a place to rest for the night. Being Valentine's day I expected it might be a little difficult to find an available room. This property appeared decent in the evening hours, and being a Budget Inn I figured it less likely to be...

this place was a dump. We stayed here because someone else made our reservation without looking at it, quite a few months ago in advance of a graduation, and we were stuck with this not having any choice since everything else was booked up. And to add insult to injury, we paid over $200 a night with a two night...

For $300/night, we walked into a room that smelled like something died, there was what could only be compared to a dried tampon in the toilet, along with massive clumps of hair in the shower. Do you think the room was cleaned?!? Avoid this place if possible. It would be better to go to Walmart and get a tent to...

Well it was a last minute stay. We were driving around and noticed it. Got the room $200 for one night! 2 queen beds. Kitchen. AC did not work they had to bring in a fan. No trash can. Thankfully California weather is cool. I wouldn't recommend it in the future unless there is no other place to stay at...

“Keep looking. you can do better than this place. I'd say the only good part about this inn is its about a 4 min drive to the downtown area with a the shops and restaurants. other than that, don't recommend it.”
