Very limited grab and go breakfast, bar closed at night, sanitation sticker on door but m&ms on floor of room. I have never stopped traveling during the pandemic. Nobody is getting sick from a surface, from a breakfast or from beer. There are hotels doing everything they can and hotels doing the bare minimums and blaming others. This one falls in the latter. Bed was comfortable, bathroom door only opens 45 degrees due to toilet in room 307...probably COVID. Nice location, could be so much more.

Hotel's Favourite
The staff were very welcoming to this lovely hotel. It is about 1-2 miles outside of downtown, or about 5 mins driving. This hotel really is quite charming with its modern decor and bright photograph walls around the bed. The rooms are incredibly spacious, well-cleaned, and sealed upon your arrival. We found the room to feel very refreshing. Though we didn't explore much ore of the hotel, we noticed that the restaurant was open as well as the pool (based upon a reservation system to limit the capacity). We wouldn't hesitate to come back here during another stay!

After reading many of these reviews, I’m amazed how many people complain about the petty, irrelevant things. Do you people have the cleanest and most spotless homes in the nation? What? The Kinney is incredibly clean, with one of the best staffs I’ve encountered in ages. I’ve stayed in hotels all over San Luis Obispo, nothing compares to the quality of service, fun amenities, location, friendliness of staff and superior rooms. Quit looking for some over-priced hotel that showcases small rooms and treats you like a cheap date... stay at the Kinney. Honestly, a very nice hotel. Go Mustangs!

We were visiting people in SLO and decided to stay at The Kinney because it was near their apartment. Terrific staff and comfy rooms. We were able to use some of the common space to hang out as well. Highly recommend!

This hotel looks cute online. Front desk was awesome, but at the end of the day, the walls are thin, carpet is nasty and stained. Toilet wasn’t even flushed, so who knows if it was cleaned. I can hear the people above me walking around right now at night - won’t be sleeping well here and won’t be staying here again. Great location, but still feels like an old hotel.

Good morning, thank you for your recent stay at The Kinney & taking the time to provide feedback. I am delighted to hear that the front desk team made a positive impact on your stay, but disappointed that the thin walls and cleaning procedures were below your expectations. Please reach out to the hotel directly so we can make this right.
