    Needs help
    Staff very helpful and friendly. Old hotel that needs some help. All lamp shades in room were broken. Freezer area in refrigerator dirty. Refrigerator itself was old. Continental breakfast all cold items except for coffee in very small area.

    Exceptional 10.0
    So friendly and accommodating. Even though it is on a main street, it is surprisingly quiet.

    Fair 4.0
    Just Meh...
    We reserved three rooms for our stay. Two were labeled to be rooms with two double beds, but when we arrived, we only got single bed rooms. The where the microwave was, looked like it was a plain piece of plywood that was just painted white. The towels were paper thin, and some of the smallest things I have ever seen. It served its purpose for the one night we were there, but I will definitely not be booking there again.

    Nice location, mediocre service
    Great location, near Cal Poly. Service was just okay. Check in was brief with the man simply asking for my name, credit card and then just handed me the card keys. When we went to check out the woman at the front desk was on the phone on what sounded like a personal call, and didn't even bother to say good by.or thank us for our stay. There was construction going on next door and it started at 7am, a little earlier than I wanted to get up since I was on vacation.

    Good 6.0
    The room was overpriced for what it was, but I knew that going in...local university Open House weekend, after all. I wasn't there very much, and it was only for one night, so it fit the bill.
