All the staff were very accommodating and informative about the changes in S.L.O. The breakfasts were varied and delicious. The cookies, every night, were a nice touch. I would recommend Garden Street Inn to anyone who plans to visit the area.

Located in downtown San Luis Obispo's historic core and the heart of California’s Central Coast, Garden Street Inn offers old-world hospitality with new-century passion. Locals call it SLO; offering More excellent shopping, first-class restaurants, wine-tasting, art galleries and museums. Surrounded by the natural beauty of the rolling hills and coastal valleys, SLO lies just a short drive from Avila Beach, Morro Bay, and Pismo Beach. Golf, tennis, biking, and hiking opportunities abound. SLO hosts a myriad of local tourist attractions, including world renowned vineyards and wineries, California missions, iconic museums, and breathtaking beaches. Classic decor reflects Victorian charm in our uniquely boutique hotel - many with fireplaces and private decks. Grab a book from the well-stocked Goldtree Library, or sip your morning coffee on our spacious outdoor communal deck. Meet the chef in preparation of a delicious breakfast each morning which is served in the McCaffrey Morning Room. Less
