"Nice hotel in quiet part of town"
The hotel was really nice. It is located at the edge of the town so it's really nice and quiet. The staff was friendly and got me through my room really quick. What I didn't like though from the very beginning when I walked into my room was that it smelled like someone had smoked there, even though the hotel has a non-smoking policy that you sign to. […] The smell wasn't bad, but it was definitely noticeable. And that's pretty much it. The rest is just good stuff. The hotel has an amazing well cooked breakfast with many choices. You just pick what you want and eat how much you want. And it's FREE. You don't even have to go out anywhere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"accommodating special request"
very accommodating, I have a child with food allergies and needed a microwave to heat food I had brought. They delivered one to my room in 20 min. The front desk was helpful in recommending restaurants in the area that were allergy aware.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Visiting for the SLO Triathlon"
Clean nice updated hotel, can see some wear but still overall maintained nicely. Welcoming staff and nice breakfast. Pool and jacuzzi was cleaned and nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't stay in room 101!"
Room 101 or any room close to the elevator are too noisy. I booked for a king but gave me a queen bed. Breakfast is horrible. Would not repeat!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mitchell is the best front desk person ever!"
We checked in with the friendliest person, Mitchell! He was by himself filtering phone calls and two families checking in with a smile on his face. Once we were checked in and got to our room, we noticed that the refrigerator was not cold and the closet door was not opening Correctly. Mitchel sent a very nice maitance man to fix them at 8:30 pm. Crazy […] that there was someone there at that time to even look at it. The frig was fixed, but the closet door Eventually fell off in my arms!! Mitchell Apologized Profusely and had someone come up right away to fix it. We will be back for sure, just because of your Mitchell. Thank you! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"As expected at a bit higher price than normal"
We were on our way home in So. Cal. from a visit to Napa/Sonoma valleys and needed an overnight stay. A last minute decision to spend the night in San Louis Obispo, rather than press on to Santa Barbara, landed us in this Holiday Express. While recently renovated and in good and clean order (typical of newer HIE hotels which we trust for just this type […] of overnight stays), the last minute price was a bit higher than usual. This combined with getting the last room, next to an elevator and the immediately next to the reception area plus a pool outside the window, did not make for the most restul of stops. Otherwise, the hotel and room were very clean, the staff was helpful and the breakfast was classic with plenty of space and offerings. Good parking, good and complimentary wifi connection. A couple of restaurants are available across the street, with a 10% discount offered at one of them, a Scottish/Irish pub with great hamburgers and lots of interesting boutique beers. Will stay again if pressed for time, though the HIE in Santa Maria is just as good, only 27 miles away and much less expensive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel for the price!"
Very straightforward for a HIE - this hotel fits their lean (but comfortable) model. Outstanding staff. Great place for a business traveler.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
very nice and clean.. Highy reccomendGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The only problem I had was when I requested a handicapped room I was tokd that they only come with 1 queen bed. My husband is 6'7", he can not fit on a queen bed. All hotels that I have stayed at have either 2 queens or 1 king bed. I just wished they had Kings in the handicapped.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great customer service"
Clean tidy. A little wear and tear but manageable. Extremely good customer service. Very polite. They even brought a microwave to our room to heat milk for our youngest.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close in to downtown"
Hotel was renovated older facility with some maintenance issues. Some mold in the bathroom tile grout, all the instructions wiped off AC unit, hot water takes forever to get to sinks and old musty stairwells. For exactly the same price you can stay at one of the new suite hotels off the 101 freeway. Trade off is you can't walk to downtown from those. […] This was not first stay in SLO and in the hotels in this more convenient neighborhood. From that past experience this is about the same or even better than others in this price range. So your choices are pay more or be at a less convenient location or live with compromise. SLO is a great town though and well worth the trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Mom and Daughter Trip"
My wife and daughter were traveling alone and they were very satisfied with their room and always feel safe at the Holiday Inn Express. They enjoyed the room and noted its cleanliness. It was a great trip from what they told me.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Safe and clean hotel"
The hotel was super clean and staff very nice. The free coffee in the morning was not so good, don't bother. Check-in and check-out was easy. I was told the pool would be heated by the expedia rep and it wasn't but at least the jazcuzzi was heated. I felt safe there since you need a key card to get into the building and would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Holiday Inn Express was a perfect place to stay. Clean rooms. Amazing customer service, and great breakfast. I will defiantly stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Downtown and Cal Poly"
Stay there again no question. Very Freindly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
They used to have in-room movies but for some reason they discontinued it. TV had limited channels (I.e. no Syfy) to boot. Neighborhood was noisy and sound carries through walls and from outside (loud music from nearby apartment). Worst was the stench Sunday morning in the hallway and lobby. Apparently is was some sort of cheese blended into their eggs. […] Amazing. It smelled like someone barfed. Only positive was the location near CalPoly. Last stay there!

"Most Expensive Bad Hotel I've Ever Paid For"
They wouldn't let us check in before 3PM (as if ALL the rooms are finished cleaning at the same time). Our wedding was at 4pm, so that doens't leave much time for myself and my girlfriend to get ready. It took forever to get a cab (but we should have called earlier i guess?). I feel bad for the guy at the desk while we were waiting for our cab...he […] prepaid for a 2 queen room, but the hotel overbooked and could only offer him a 1 king room. They don't offer cots or roll aways, just blankets and pillows. Looks like he and his buddy will be cuddling all night...It was just TOO MUCH to pay for that quality. If you are thinking about booking here, do yourself a favor and spend an extra $20/night and go to the Madonna Inn or anywhere else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Equal distance to CalPoly and Downtown"
Not walkable to either location, but quick drive to either.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is in a good location, nice layout for rooms. Generally, it is good lodging for trips, when going through and don't want any hassles.Genuine Expedia guest review
You could hear every time the person above us was walking. The shower temp could not be regulated well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It would be nice if the hotel had a shuttle service to and from the Amtrak depot. No taxis at the depot, so we had a 13-block walk in 80-degree heat and humidity. Only demerit I would give the hotel was that we did NOT receive our little welcome package as Priority Club guests even though our membership was a matter of fact with the man behind the counter […] when we checked in. I had to ask for the package the next morning. It had been available all along, but... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Stay quiet all the time...."
I know this is not a new hotel; but I guess it is time for them to renew entire hotel. We have 2 kids(2y&8y) and came here as our family trip. We were relatively quiet, but we had to walk like a mouse during our stay, since we were told to be quiet. If you come here with younger kids, you may want to consider to stay at other hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our one night stay"
I got the room for its rate and location. Older building, older rooms, older features. Thankfully, front desk people were helpful. We got late check out even though we didn't need it in the end, and we received help on how to turn our air conditioner off (believe it or not none of the buttons worked and I had to trip it from the power cord--probably […] not ideal for most guests). The room did what we needed for the one night; however, I don't think we'd return there! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great stay in SLO"
Helpful, friendly front desk staff. I came w/ my son for a football camp and stayed fro one night. We had to leave very early for camp and was going to drive back 4 hours after camp. I asked if we could come back for a dip in the pool and freshen up and Amy obliged. We didn't end up using the pool but it was great to be able to freshen up in the lobby […] restrooms.

"Good, but relatively expensive"
The service and property were on par with what I expect from a Holiday Inn Express. However, the pricing was completely wrong. On the same trip, I stayed at a Doubletree in downtown L.A. that was much better in service, amenities, and condition. yet I paid substantially less. I would have expected this hotel to have been significantly cheaper than a […] Doubletree. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
