Stayed here for one night. Our room was spacious, clean and with good amenities, but a little dated. Free parking, pool, hot tub, DVD loan and breakfast were much appreciated. We were able to walk into downtown SLO from the hotel.More

We had 2 queen beds for a family of 4 I believe. Would depend on the ages of the kids (if you could put theee in bed together or if 2 could go together and 1 in with you). If so, it’d be ok for a stopover but a bit cramped... More
