Cole, the front desk clerk did a great job and was very friendly and checks us in very quickly. He also helped me print up tickets to a Cal Poly event later that night that I forgot to print when we left home. Later we needed an extra blanket and he was the one that ran it up to the room, within minutes of our request.
