    Comfortable stay - good value
    We had a good stay overall. The hotel is very close to downtown and it was very clean and comfortable. The lady at the front desk was very nice, and when we realized our tv remote was missing, she sent someone quickly to bring one and make sure it worked well. The bed was very firm and the pillows were comfortable enough. In the morning, we heard clearly and loudly a man talking on the phone either in one of the rooms around us or behind us, not sure, but it came straight thru the back window in the bathroom (note to management in case they are not aware of the way the noise travels thru the back and can do something about it.) The bathroom is stocked with shampoo and bath gel from a dispenser, which I thought was a good thing to avoid waste and help the environment. Good stay for the money.

    Helpful manager, clean room, peaceful property
    University Inn was an excellent choice with my low budget. My boyfriend and I stayed in clean, comfortable and spacious room. The nice manager even helped us switch rooms to the one we wanted. No one bothered us even when checking out a few minutes late. We ate the free breakfast, had English muffins, tea/coffee, cereal/oatmeal, fruit, bear claws, etc. Bedding was very clean and comfortable (we checked for bedbugs we saw nothing in rm 212), shower and bathtub very clean, working TV and amenities, great view of trees and hillsides off the top balcony! Definitely walkable from downtown if weather permits, maybe about half a mile? Overall a very peaceful, pleasant stay. We love SLO!

    Will Never Stay There Again
    Hotel claimed NOT to have our reservation even though it had already been confirmed by us prior to our trip. Had to drive around for hours trying to find another hotel. Will NEVER stay at this hotel again!!!
