“Great Value, Great Location, Great Staff”
Reviewed 19 July 2010

My wife and I were looking for a base from which to enjoy kayaking, sights in San Luis Obispo, and some fine dining. This hotel was perfect. The staff were very attentive to our needs, such as extra pillows and opening the safe (which the previous guest left closed). They were also very friendly, courteous, and as a family business are very hard-working.
If you are looking for a good value for a hotel that is in a nice place and offers a basic breakfast, fridge, and microwave in a comfortable room, this is a good one. They do not exactly have a full business center, but they have a computer in the front office with internet access as well as wireless internet access in all the rooms. It is not a luxury hotel, but what it offers, it does very well, and at a great value. Thank you, Travelodge San Luis Obispo!

My sister-n-law and I stayed her from June 30th until July5th and we had a very clean room with a nice set up with fridge and microwave. Had a clean bathroom and staff kept it clean each day. It was our hotel launch point as we went to the beach towns and Hearst Castle. Asit was the most helpful and friendly manager and went out of his way to help us with information. We felts very safe in SLO and the trolley stops right outside your hotel for the ride to the farmers market. ONly 25Cents each way! I might stay here again but book outside of Expedia as I think I could get a better rate. THe hotel was fairly full 4th of July . Pool was heated but still felt too cold for me. Its is in the way of the parking lot.. the breakfast area was cramped but you could take your tray from yoru room and get your food and take it back to your room. Had a computer to use in lobby to.

Got a good rate for a one night stay by booking on-line. Room is basic but comfortable. As with all US motels difficult to make tea! Walking distance from downtown San Kuis Obispo and set back from road so very little traffic noise.

We called ahead for good rates. The young girl at the desk was knowledgeable and gave us a nice room. The next day we went to review and the manager and his wife were on duty. Whole different story. Besides having a problem understanding the manager, him and his wife told us we would have to move to another room, told us the rate was no longer valid, and acted uncaring. We left and went down the street and found better and less expensive accomdationgs with one block. The next day we noticed that the motel had a number of empty rooms. This management team is killing the bottom line for the chain, but worse, they are not taking care of the hotel and its cleanliness with very dirty walkways, and a free breakfast that featured stale everything. There is better motels within a block and some are far less expensive.

We stayed here on our way from Frisco to LA... glad we arrived in SLO on a Thursday night for the local festivities (Farmer's Market every Thursday night) which gave us something to do. The hotel is not in the center of town, but there is a free shuttle bus if you don't want to take your car (we took the car and lucked out with a parking space -- they close down part of the main drag for the Farmer's Market)

The hotel was fine, an old revamped one, but the staff (a couple with kids) was very sweet. Breakfast is a bit cramped so we took our food to the room, but you can also go to the pool. The pool (which we didn't use) seems fine, but unfortunately is literally in the parking lot, so a bit awkward but...I guess if I were the owners I would revamp by putting the pool in the BACK where there is a huge downhill slope (that my kids used for Heely practice !!) . We had the last room on the end which was quiet and had a window overlooking the parking lot and the mountains. Probably in the middle would be a bit noisy since there were groups of people staying there, like friends, etc. so late night laughing, etc.. But I thing the manager probably tries to accomodate families (he has kids !), since I made the reservation the day before and he put us on the end, which was quiet. Coffee Maker, microwave and fridge, and the kids liked the fact that there were a lot of TV channels !

It is right across the street from a HOliday Inn which "looks" nicer but is probably more expensive and besides, there were strikers in front of it !! We paid $92 for 2 queen beds, for 4.

Located about 20 minute walk from Downtown - in the midst of hundreds of motels and hotels. We were on a budget so shopped around for a cheap deal and got this for about $70. Have stayed in other travelodges and found them to be clean and generally ok. This was a bit worse than we expected - room was shabby and sparse and not very well looked after.
Breakfast was horrendous, and the lobby was smelly. It did have a pool although it looked a bit dirty so we didnt go in, and there was WIFI - so one good point!! Not a lot else to say really!
