The room was clean and everything was in order. Good location on Monterey Street. No problems.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a good 2-star hotel, with a friendly and helpful staff. The room was fine for a 2*, and (despite a review to the contrary) the wireless internet worked just fine. Perhaps a touch pricey when compared to other 2*s on the Monterey strip, that offer breakfast and/or a bathtub.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ich habe zwei Naechte in diesem Hotel verbracht. Die Lage ist wunderbar, die Angestellten sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit, jedoch ist das Zimmer unverhaeltnismaessig teuer! 133,00 $ pro Nacht OHNE Fruehstueck finde ich eine Frechheit! Ansonsten sind die Zimmer sauber, jedoch ist das Interieur alt und abgenutzt. Fuer einen Zwischenstopp fuer eine Nacht […] reicht es jedoch aus. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Cet hôtel a proposé une chambre certes plutôt petite, mais propre, confortable, disposant de ce qui est nécessaire pour un séjour court, en l'occurence une nuit. Un parking gratuit, voisin de la chambre, est également appréciable. L'absence de la possibilité d'un breakfast sur place peut être considéré comme un point négatif. Toutefois, plusieurs établissements […] très proches servant des petits déjeuners et autres repas peuvent compenser cette absence. Premier bémol : la personne m'ayant accueilli s'est montrée sous un jour essentiellement " administratif ", n'esquissant absolument aucun sourire ( la seule et unique fois sur les 7 hôtels fréquentés lors demon séjour en Californie ). Second bémol, proximité d'une voie ferrée avec plusieurs klaxons de locomotives pendant la nuit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to downtown at a reasonable price"
01/02/15 Robert H Chatsworth, California, United States
This motel is relatively close to downtown in an area with multiple hotels and motels. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Mattress was a bit hard for my taste but my daughter thought it was very comfortable. The hotel is in walking distance from a brewery and a pretty good Irish Pub. We had breakfast at the little bakery down the road. All in all, a good experience. Wireless internet is slow.
"Friendly and helpful staff"
10/29/14 681AmyJ London, United Kingdom
We got recommended this motel from the HI hostel which was full. The rooms were adequate and what you would expect from a motel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They recommended and helped us book our next motel for a stay in Monterey. We visited San Luis Obispo as a half way point between a road trip from LA to San Francisco. I would definitely recommend visiting on a Thursday as they have a very lively market which fills up about a mile of the main street. They have food, gifts and live music and is packed full of locals and visitors alike. Well worth a visit.
"A dash of Mexicana and a dollop of kitsch...."

With all the basics and beyond (from microwave, refrigerator, wifi, and parking) for under $100, it is hard to criticize this little oasis. I have been staying here ever since I discovered it more than five years ago. The same Indian family has been in charge, and always ingratiating. it is a short walk to the downtown hub, where you can be a true tourist, or pretend you are a local by dropping into their lovely public library, or, if you are lucky enough to be in town on Thursday, attend their year round night time public market.
"Retro charm: Wow, this is how my parents & grandparents traveled - now I did!"
08/20/14 MLMeyers Houston, Texas
I'm a down to earth gal & loved staying here! These old adobe style, courtyard, carport motels are disappearing, like an iconic part of the American culture and being replaced by big chain hotels. Staying here felt like traveling back in time. First off, I can't help but to notice an interesting assortment of mixed reviews here. Fact 1: Hotels are fairly pricey near and in downtown San Luis Obispo. Fact 2: Most hotel prices sky-rocket on the weekends in this town but the Los Padres Motel didn't go up too drastically on the weekends. I greatly appreciated that since I was traveling on a budget. When I'm looking for a modestly priced hotel, my priorities are safety, clean rooms and a well kept property. Lost Padres met all of my criteria and more! I was very surprised by the homey and retro charm of the motel and really got attached to the atmosphere. I appreciate how it's family owned, the staff were friendly, attentive and very professional. The property was overflowing with charm with their care in potted plants, tidy landscaping and an overall inviting courtyard atmosphere. Staying at such a charming place that's near downtown and... also nestled in the coolest residential neighborhood made all the difference with my vacation. I live in a very car-city and loved the fact that I could walk around in a pleasant neighborhood and get to pretty much everything I wanted to, by foot. Some of the furniture is a bit eclectic, funky and old. But, if that's what's helping keep the prices down... leave the furniture alone! I'll take retro, charm and personality over sanitized and homogenized, in a heartbeat! A BIG THANK YOU to the staff, for keeping this motel in its original historical form. Like I said, old motels like this are getting harder to find. Thank you!! I'll definitely come back when I have the opportunity.
"Terrible customer experience - BEWARE"
07/25/14 lacrosse14 San Diego
It takes a lot for me to write a review, but I felt compelled to do it this time. I made my reservation through the hotel's own website, and received a confirmation e-mail. Upon arrival, we were told that they didn't have our reservation. After some stressful debate, the manager booked us into a 1 star motel across the street, and told us that they would take care of the charge. The following morning, we were forced to pay for the substandard room. They didn't honor our reservation and they lied about taking care of the room charge. Never again.
"Very nice place and reasonably priced as well"
07/21/14 Darren C Chico, California
We all think it is a very nice place , nothing extremely fancy but clean and comfy and less than $100 for the night, very worth the cost and would stay here again if ever back in this area . If your looking for a nice place to rest than I we recommend the place for you
"In Bad Shape and $200 a night !"
Our room had dirty cushions on the chairs, mold on the shower door, paint peeling off the wall in the bathroom and a badly worn heater grill. I would recommend you not stay there. It's worth about $50 a night, not $200. Please tell your friends. The bed was hard as a rock.
07/19/14 NucPower San Luis Obispo, California
This is the worst most overpriced motel we have ever stayed in. Over $200 for a small, old, dingy room with a creaky bed, no A/C, noisy fan, falling apart shower and slow internet speed. It may be worth more like $95.
"Excellent place, great value"
04/24/14 SaritBenTzur Tel Aviv, Israel
We were visiting for only one night. The motel is authentic, and located in a lovely area, close to several restaurants, cafes and city downtown. Smoking is allowed in the middle of the parking area, with nice table & bench setting (other places will send you outside the premises to smoke). The room was basic, but clean and nice and the shower was great. The host was really nice and friendly, took care of our needs and gave many tips for the area. Thank you :)
"A good home base"
04/21/14 MissChiVus Los Angeles
Living a bit of a gypsy lifestyle I was in need of a place to call home for a few days.Traveling solo this space is safe, clean, affordable, family owned & operated, and conveniently located to downtown San Louis Obispo and the 101. I will stay here again for sure.
