"Nice stay at a cheap price"
We were coming back from Santa Barbara to Bay Area after Christmas with a six months old baby. We decided to stay the night and selected this hotel in a comparatively cheaper price. We enjoyed our one night stay. The breakfast was good including bread,waffle and cereals. If required in future, I will stop by here again.

"Close to most all must-see sights."
It was a pleasant stay, pretty much what I'd expect from the reduced price I paid. The compact fridge was indeed small, smaller than I would have expected. Small microwave, but adequate. In the room was a blow dryer, iron & board and the sleeping pillows were to my liking, very thin not fluffy. Some of the higher priced Hotel/Motels are now excluding some of these amenities, probably due to theft and provide on some items on request and may have a charge per/day fee as well. I would recommend this stay to others.

Attended a show in San Luis Obispo. Disappointed with hotel. Poor condition/run down. People loitering at night in the parking lot and walking by the rooms. Parking lot was full - no place to park. Finally got a parking place but didn't go anywhere because we didn't want to lose it, so we walked to get something to eat. Staff was courteous but not helpful. Wouldn't stay there again.

"Last minute booking, won't stay again"
I booked this room at the last minute. Knowing the reviews of this hotel, I did not want to stay here, but it was the only room available in SLO. It appears that they are upgrading the rooms by replacing carpet and painting. However, the paint is on the sheer curtains and windows, the lamp shades are dirty, and the shower curtains have holes in them. I think I was fortunate to have a room with new clean sheets and blankets, but bring your own towels. Theirs are stained and have a very strong bleach smell. Also, bring your own shampoo, conditioner (none supplied), and soap (unless you don't mind bar soap). When I went to my room in the evening, the power was out in my room. I called the front desk and spoke with a woman who has no business talking with the public. She questioned my concern but they did end up fixing the problem. Lastly, I paid more for a two queen bed room, but was put in a one bed room. That was fine, but I want some money back since its not what I paid for.

"Could be better"
When I checked in no one was at the front desk. I waited a few minutes to be greeted by a women on her cell phone. I could hear the other person through the women's ear piece. There were a few moments I couldn't tell if she was speaking to me or the person on her cellphone. As I walked to my room I noticed that they have a huge pile of trash off the side of the hotel. Its out in the open; no one could missing. Our Tv remote didn't work and the AC didn't work consistently. Other then that it was a pretty quiet nights stay. I would not stay again tho... I do not expect four seasons, but everything should be clean and everything should work properly.

"HORRIBLE - Sickeningly disgusting - SHUT IT DOWN"
Wet sheets and blanket. Blanket had holes in it. This place is not clean. It did not pass the black light inspection. The manager simply did not care about the quality... this might pass for a bad motel in Mumbai, but seriously this was the most disgusting place we've stayed in years. WARNING: WEAR SHOES at ALL TIMES; BRING YOUR OWN SLEEPING BAG to PLACE ON BED; COMFORTERS ARE NOT CLEAN. The only quality that this place has is location -- but this place should be on the black list of worst 10 places to stay in SLO town.

"Never Ever Ever Again"
This hotel was awful. The manager was so uninterested in his job and unprofessional. And when we went to check out, he just had a bowl to throw our keys in because he couldn't be bothered to actually accept our keys and make sure no one stole them. The beds and pillows were lumpy and hard. I'm not a picky person when it comes to mattresses, but these were sooo bad. Whenever someone ran their faucet or anything, we would hear it. Then the sound would be amplified to the point where it was like sleeping under a waterfall. Not a romantic waterfall, a really annoying, violent waterfall. I wish I was exagerating, but I didn't get any sleep. We could also hear our neighbors for most of the night (sounded like they were rolling their suitcases on the wall!) and the traffic. No soundproofing really. And the AC had a gross smell. The price isn't worth it, this place shouldn't even be open. JUST DON'T STAY HERE!!!

"Rescue stay"
Was booked into this hotel by Hotels.com when my original reseveration 50 miles away evaporated when the hotel I booked apparently overbooked and left my family and I on the street. Hotels.com was notified and booked this hotel for me but in another town which made for an additional 45 minute drive late at night. So thank you for taking us but this place was right next to the freeway, not a suite hotel as we had reserved, the manager was in a yelling match with punks partying on the premises. Since I was not in the best of moods maybe I am too harsh but the room was small, the bathroom door barely clears the tub, the bedspread had burn holes and the linens were not fitted and shifted on us all night. Since the hotel is practically on the on ramp to Hwy 101, the cars come round the corner at breakneck speed. You take your life in your hand crossing the street on foot. The parking lot is small and difficult to maneuver. Only one space remained when I arrived. Could not get into it. Had to park on the street. But Hotels.com gave me a discount and a credit so I think their customer service was commenable.

"A little disappointing"
For the price it definitely wasn't worth it! Door hinges were visibly rusted, the floor was uneven in spots, permanent marker writing on the pictures hanging, hair in the corner of shower/bath, & the bed was uncomfortable. If I'm going to pay $212 for a Saturday night, I expect a little more.

"the carpet was terrible, so dirty. smelling bad"
the man who was at the front desk had the worst customer service skills I've ever seen, he was not properly dressed and the worst thing about him, his shirt was all dirty....in the room some things like the bathroom were ok, but the carpet was terribly terribly looking, and of course, to mix the odor, they used so much air freshener....honestly I will never come back, ....and one last thing the price was for a 4 to 4.5 star hotel...

"Don't visit unless you like smoke!"
The room I was given smelled like smoke so I changed rooms and got the end room on the bottom where everyone staying there goes to smoke. Yuck!! Couldn't open window because there was always someone outside my room smoking. Seriously, why would anyone still smoke?? The toilet seat was discustingly stained and gross! A toilet seat costs about $30.00. Replace it!! The bed was comfortable enough,but would not set my purse or anything on the bedspread. Not worth the $60.00. You do get what you pay for. Won't stay there again.

I stayed at this hotel 3 years ago, not bad, but clean. Now, carpets were filthy, not even vacuumed. Used bath towel and soap left in bathroom. Drain clogged with soap bars. Had to remove so no standing water on ankles. When removed a HUGE clog of hair attached. Kleenex re-stuffed into box! Sticky surfaces everywhere. Bedspreads, sticky with holes. Sheets, holes! Continental Breakfast included: Coffee, corn flakes, pitcher of whole milk (warm), white or wheat bread for toast, butter, no jelly, etc. Waffle mix, small sticky, gross syrup dispenser. That's it!
