    University Inn, San Luis Obispo
    Paid for 4 only provided towels for 2. Front desk asked us to search tv drawers then promised to send them by. Never came despite clearly confirming room number multiple times. Heater was too loud to sleep through. Thin walls, could hear next door snoring but tired enough to sleep through that.

    Great bargain hotel in an expensive city
    This is a great place for a family that wants to spend the night in SLO without spending a fortune. The couple serving as innkeepers were very helpful and accomodating. When a low-life family staying in the room above us was noisy at 2:30 in the morning, the innkeeper moved them to a new room. You really can't ask for more than that. Book with confidence.

    Nice hotel
    Safe property with great management. Looks like they have been gradually updating items in the rooms. Some parts are new and some are tired and old. Note that a queen is a full and a full is an oversized twin.

    Not the best
    Bed was very uncomfortable and the orange juice for the continental breakfast was awful.
