SLCL was a great place for our 5 day stay in SLO! The room was big and just felt much more cozy and homey compared to the typical hotel room. The bed was incredibly comfortable and firm. Pets are allowed so if you want that option, it is available. Town was a nice walk from the hotel where restaurants abound!...

What a beautiful hotel! A weekend out celebrating my boyfriend 21 birthday decided to stay at this outstanding spot. We stayed at the Craftsman building couldn't have been any happier. Just what we needed close to Downtown Slo. Great service throughout the way, especially during check in the front desk agent made us feel welcome and let us know that...

If we're going by real hotel standards, this place is a solid 3.5 stars but since Holiday Inns seem to get 4 stars on TA, this is a TA 5 star. ;) Very nice, cozy property sandwiched between two lower quality motels. Don't let that deter you. Very comfortable rooms, great staff and a super cozy kind of ski lodge...

Nice Surprise We decided to make an unplanned stop in San Luis Obispo on our way to Carmel and saw that this Inn was the number one place to stay. Now we see why. Not only are the people lovely, but the Inn is quiet, off the highway, with comfortable rooms and bathrooms with two sinks —always a plus. The...

I stayed in the Craftsman building, couldn't have been happier with my beautifully decorated home away from home. Huge, super comfortable bed, even a fireplace in the corner! Took advantage of the wi-fi (very easy to access) and the satellite hdtv, and of course the coffee maker in the morning :) Breakfast next to the office was great, as was...

We stayed two enjoyable nights, exploring San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, and the surrounding area. The hotel is very conveniently located about 15 minutes walking distance to downtown, with several restaurants within 5 minutes walking of the hotel. We had an upstairs room which was clean, spacious, and quiet. Our room included breakfast, which looked pretty good, but we ended...

This is an unusual property consisting of 3 very different buildings; Londonderry, Craftsman & Plantation. We stayed in the Londonderry building, I cannot remember the room number. It was a wonderful king room, beautiful 4 poster bed with a very comfortable mattress, fire place, large screen TV, beautiful bathroom. They offer a continental breakfast. The staff are very, very friendly...

This is a boutique hotel that is nice, clean and well maintained. There are many personal touches that make the place seem more like home than a hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast will give you a good start in the morning. I would stay here again.

We loved this hotel. We stayed one night on our way down the coast on a quick vacation between Xmas and NY. Check in was quick and easy; the young man checking us in had a list of restaurants in town and made a recommendation that was perfect for us. Breakfast was good with steel cut oats, fresh made waffles...

They say dog friendly, but we were assigned probably the worst room in the hotel (because we had a dog)which they still called a "Deluxe King", and charged as such. Tiny room, with view of cement parking lot (which seems to be the case for many of their rooms). We told them if they could not accomodate a room change,...
