I stayed here with my wife and 2 year old as we were passing through on a road trip, and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and value; great, clean room for the price! We will definitely stay here again.

I loved the new renovations at this place. This is my new go-to place whenever in the San Luis Obispo area. Greeted wtih a smile and left receiving a smile. Rooms are extremely clean and they accommodated my request of checking out late.

We stayed here during our drive down the west coast and the hotel couldnt have been in a more ideal location. Just off the 101, very easy to find. There are shops across the road and places to grab some food. You also get complimentary breakfast, which isnt fantastic, but you cant complain as its free! Juan on the front...

The room and property were very clean. We had never taken our dog away and we were apprehensive about going to a pet friendly hotel. However it was pleasantly nice and the location is perfect (close to Pismo Beach and Cal Poly University).
