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.

The second-floor room we had was a good size. The bed was comfortable. The upgraded windows can help keep street noise down. The cleanliness was average - specs of stuff near the baseboards, dirt in corners -- not unusual. The price was high due to it being move-in weekend for Cal Poly, but it is close to campus (though we...

Perfectly clean, no musty odor or smells from cleaning products, windows were open when we arrived and well aired-out. Walls are showing their age and could use a coat of paint. A few nicks and dents all over. Bed firm, comfortable, pillows firm & took some getting used to. Sheets & towels clean and no smoky smell. Newer air conditioning...

We spent one short night at the Villa Motel during a road trip. The room suited our needs: convenient, clean and good value. The hotel was basic and old-fashioned, could use a freshening up, but was just fine for the night.

We just got back from a night in SLO and stayed at the Villa Motel. The location is great - walking distance from the town center and just blocks from Central Coast Brewery, restaurants and shops. The rooms are decent size, clean and comfortable. There are even mountain views from the rooms. It's a great place to spend a night...

Since we would be arriving late & leaving early we were looking for an economical room. This motel was a very pleasant surprise! The room was very clean with a comfy bed. Our room was a nice size. There is a refrigerator, microwave & coffeemaker in each room. The showerhead was great & I appreciated the power strips with extra...
