I was in SLO for a very quick trip and decided to try out the Los Padres Inn this time. My son goes to Cal Poly, so we're there frequently and have stayed at many different hotels. It was a comfortable and very pleasant night. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable, and the staff friendly. I love the carports!

The hotel was conveniently located on California so walking to both CalPoly and downtown was easy. The owners of the hotel are also super sweet and helpful! This isn't a luxury hotel but it gets the job done!

The front desk was very nice. The room was old, but clean. Some paint peeling, old wood, but everything was clean. We had 2 queen beds, and the room was very spacious, much larger than I expected. The only bad thing, there is a glass panel in the door and it let in a lot of light at night. I...

My stay was easy-going, joyful and convenient. The orange and yellow roses were in full bloom at the entrance complementing the great California vibe of Los Padres Inn. The rooms were clean, and comfortable. A friend and I shared with two queens, the room size was perfect. The convenient location is just a few blocks from the highway and also...

A great location for a motel. Only a 10 min walk into town rather than being located off some random busy highway. Rooms were clean and well-sized. It was a little rough around the edges, our bath was quite cracked/chipped but you get what you pay for I suppose. Internet seems quite quick for a motel. Perfect for a one-night...

Los Padres inn was conveniently close to downtown SLO. The room was clean, and was just as we expected for the price. The staff was friendly and the room was ready when we got there even though we were a little early. I would recommend staying here if you're in SLO for a short trip.

Awesome owners! Stayed here on a business trip and I have no complaints. Great location, great people. We were able to walk downtown when we had meetings and walk back for breaks in-between. I stayed in room 17 which was very spacious. Room service came every other day

Great spot. A quick walk to downtown. First and foremost, they are very clean. Sure, it's a little outdated and space is tight. That being said, we had everything we needed - a table, fridge, microwave, air conditioning, etc. The walls are little thin, so you might want to bring ear plugs. The beds were comfortable & the sheets were...
