Just fine
Everything was just fine except the wifi didn’t work. It made it hard to plan my vacation, relax when the internet wasn’t working.

Conveniently located. Clean and quiet. Had clean freezer/fridge and microwave. Room was updated but could still use some decor assistance.

Hotels are expensive in SLO, so this was a good deal for our two night visit touring the university and doing some fun stuff around town. I wish it had been more up to date, a bit cleaner and, well, just nicer for the price. But it was serviceable and met our basic needs. The check-in was easy and the staff very nice and helpful. It's just an old place in need of a face-lift.

You get what you pay for; at times
Dated; from the room to linens. Stains on the walls. Bathroom door was broken and didn’t close properly.

Older motel needing upkeep, but comfortable.
This is a small motel complex which is conveniently located in SLO. However, it is older and somewhat run down, needing some serious upkeep. The small bathroom had no hooks to hang up clothes, the bath had stains either from what looked like old paint or chemical stains. and the bathroom window frame was water damaged with a very poor paint job. On the positive side, the beds were comfortable, There was a good shower, the heater/air conditioner worked well, and the TV & cable worked. Although there is not coffee or breakfast service, there is a good cafe 1/2 block away. Overall, the motel is not a good value for the $225, which is a going rate for area hotels.

Wow. The new owners have started upgrading the rooms. Now there are electrical outlets all over the place. New flooring, fresh paint, completely redone bathrooms. This is my favorite motel in SLO, where I used to live.
