My family spent several days at San Luis Creek Lodge in awe of how well we were treated and how wonderful the setting is. Every employee that we encountered was gracious, helpful, in good spirits and more than accommodating. The details were incredible - from the welcome note from the general manager to the warm coffee and scones every morning. The room was spacious, clean, modern, and inviting. The bed and bedding were top notch. We loved the open concept bathroom and the towels were like brand new. The hotel is located off of the main street but minutes from city center and the university. The location is calm and quiet with restaurants in walking distance. Nice for parents visiting students, couples looking for a romantic weekend, even families - like us. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the hotel and our experience. We felt pampered, leaving refreshed and looking forward to our next stay! The general manager certainly knows the unique boutique hotel business, importance of little special touches, and how to create lovely environments for the guests.

I cannot recommend this hotel enough! I booked 4 rooms for my family and I last weekend, and we didn't want to leave. The staff is wonderful, and the check-in process was a breeze. Our rooms were all different from each other, but equally gorgeous. Nina Freudenberger is a fantastic designer, and it was so much fun to enjoy her work. I would say it has a modern surf shack vibe to it, yet she managed to bring the warmth of a lodge aspect to it as well. The coffee and scones that were delivered in the morning were phenomenal, and little touches like that are what sets this place apart. Their Aesop bath products added to the luxurious feel, and their bathrooms were spa-like and designed to perfection. Our bathroom in room 19 was green, and had the most beautiful China Green marble countertops. I was inspired to freshen up my own space after leaving here. I also cannot say enough nice things about the manager, Cheryl. She will take care of you and make sure everything is perfect. We cannot wait to come back!

The San Luis Creek lodge was a wonderful place for my husband & I to call home for a few nights. It’s a boutique hotel with clean lines and upscale amenities. Room are quiet, comfortable and contemporary. Daily delivered hot coffee and baked breakfast pastries were a bonus. Staff & management were very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely stay here again when visiting the beautiful central coast!

I reserved this hotel for Valentine's Day weekend for me and my girlfriend and they cancelled my reservation the day before we were supposed to check-in. Because it was Valentine's Day/President's Day Weekend, there were no other options in the area of a similar class. I'll admit that we did book the reservation just two days before, but please don't say that you have availability if you really don't just to cover any cancellations. When an airline oversells a flight they at least compensate their passengers for the inconvenience. Instead, the hotel called the booking agency we used and told them they couldn't honor the reservation rather than calling me directly to address the situation. Of course the agency couldn't do anything to correct the situation because it wasn't their fault. I am extremely disappointed that the hotel handled the situation this way and I would avoid booking this place in the future if it's during a busy weekend.

Dear Emarge, We appreciate you leaving us your thoughts and are sorry to hear you were unable to stay with us. Unfortunately, during the busy weekend of your reservation, our hotel was overbooked. We sincerely apologize for this, and though it is not typical, it does occur on occasion due to cancelations and system errors. It is also of note that we have limited control over reservations booked through third-parties, and we apologize for the inconvenience. Rest assured, we have spoken to our team regarding your experience, and we hope for another chance, you show you just what a comfortable stay with us is like. Cheryl Duke General Manager San Luis Creek Lodge
