San Luis Obispo, California
Reviewed 14 February 2017

Title tells it all. Very rundown, bad tacky repairs, noisy, smoking, screaming neighbors. No sleep for us. try one of the other places in the area first. this place is just a tad too shabby. You can do better. Motel 6 is better.

We had a great stay at Villa Motel. The personnel were extremely friendly and helpful, the room was clean and spacious, with great WiFi signal. We came on a Thursday evening when the street Farmer Market was on, it was only a 15 minute walk to the centre of town. The only problem was that our neighbours were quite loud...

We stayed at it right after a long day in Big Sur. We chose it because San Luis Obispo tends to be cheaper than Morro Bay due to its off-coast location. We got what we payed for: it was OK just to charge our devices and crash in bed. Receptionist was quite far from the friendliness which we usually saw...

Attractive location. Several restaurants within walking distance. Room was spacious and clean. Bed was very comfortable. Price was very affordable compared with other accomodations in the area. Quiet.

Sitting right between downtown and the Cal Poly SLO campus, Villa Motel is very conveniently located but still far enough away to have a quiet night. There are few affordable places to stay in San Luis Obispo, and this is one of, if not the, cheapest. It looks great after the recent renovations and the rooms were quite clean. The...

Best for the price in SLO. I have stayed at several other hotels/motels in SLO and I think I will be coming back here. It's not gonna give you 5 * accommodations, but for those of us who like a clean room, comfortable enough bed, hot shower and not shelling out tons of dough I'd say this is the place...

This is a great motel in the San Luis Obispo area. It was very close to downtown and was clean with a nice TV. The shower had great water pressure and it was a spacious room. It is a regular motel, so don't expect anything super nice. For the price it was more than we expected and we would all...

Upon arriving here, I immediately I was presently surprised at how charming this motel was. It had just been renovated and you can tell!!! The quaint beachy teal color the exterior was painted made it stand out, and the outside was well kept, BUT in inside was the best really left me impressed. The ceiling reminded me of a log...

The room was comfortable and clean with relatively new furnishing and equipped with fine coffeemaker. The staff was friendly and helpful, the location quiet. It did not have its own dining room but was in walking distance to various restaurants. This was probably the best motel I stayed on my California round trip. Very good for the price.

Stayed here for 2 nights expecting a mediocre motel room, but was pleasantly surprised to find a huge and exceptionally clean room - lots of space and high ceilings. 1/2 mile to downtown - easily walkable. Definitely enjoyed this stay.
