Very close to Cal Poly campus and to downtown SLO. Very convenient location. Price very inexpensive. Owner is extremely friendly and nice - he just doesn't have much to work with.
Room smelled musty and old. Shower drained slowly - standing in water the whole shower. A/C is wall-mounted and very noisy, but also cooled the room nicely. Wifi was spotty - it worked well one day and then not the next. Just an old run-down facility that has seen its better days. You get what you pay for and definitely don't get anything else.
I love the owner/desk person. He was very friendly and courteous. I loved the location and the price. The room was very clean. The air and refrigerator worked. We have stayed at some where they didn't work. I will stay here many more times for short stays!!
The ONLY problem was the bed. The bed was not comfortable. I think this Motel is good for short stays due to the bed situation.
Communication with the staff
Great location and internet.
rooms are so close together (3 rooms per corner) and the walls are thin. There were a group of girls staying in a few rooms who seemed I be having a party making lots of noise from 6pm - 11pm which was annoying.
Great little motel, especially for the price. It was exactly what we were looking for...clean, no frills with a comfortable bed.
Older motel, good value, nice and clean.
Close to beach(even thought tides were too high use it) Pleasant and helpful receptionist(got room ready quickly as we arrived early)
Shortage of restaurants within walking distance but one very good one available
Close to town, good parking, very 50's
quiet, friendly, and a good value for the money
Wi-fi was very slow
It is kept as a quaint unique place - did not succumb to selling out to a chain motel outfit. My room had cross-ventilation windows - which would never exist in a cookie-cutter chain motel room - very nice and breezy - couldn't ask for more
noisy a/c broken toilet
-clean -large mini fridge w/freezer -microwave -flat screen tv w/cable -free coffee every morning -great location -not small, not big -great service
-lugging up my luggage up the stairs
The room was pretty clean and confortable. Air conditioning kind of silent. The hotel area is residential so it is quite silent. It is well located, easily reached from the CA-1 and from the US-101. Many option of restaurants and bars a few blocks from the hotel. Staff was nice and friendly. No breakfast is included but staff offered a cup of coffee and sweet roll in the morning. It has free parking a few steps from the rooms, which makes getting the luggage to the rooms very easy. I had nothing to complain.
Easy to locate, but not on busy street. Refer and microwave worked great....adequate parking. lower floor. No need for A/C. Lots of hot water showers. Older but painted and kept up. Clean.
Good location inexpensive
Very friendly owner- let us book in REALLY late!
I liked the location and the city of San Luis Obispo.
I wish I could upload pictures. The place was so disgusting and we could not get or money back nor were there any other places available. Even motel 6 would have been better and cheaper. How on earth this place got almost 4 out of 5 stars is ridiculous!! This is a slum motel that belongs on a strip. The walls were filthy, the furniture ancient, carpets stained and ripped, even shredded where it meets the linoleum. I didn't even want my child to walk barefooted on the carpet. I can just imagine how filthy the blankets were. Thank goodness I always bring my own pillows and blankets!
for the price i paid, i got a night sleep
we reached the place at 4pm. they gave us a second floor room. when we reached the room there was a cleaning lady at the place telling us that the room will not be ready for another 15 minutes. we gave her the time [ waiting outside in the sun] when we finaly entered the room we had to ventilate it for some 3 hours due to the strong odor from the cleanning agents beeing used. during the stay i discovered the following: some of the pilow covers where not clean/used/dirty. the tv was not working at all. the promised wifi was not working. the air-conditioning was so noisy we decided not to use it. the carpet look very bad and not clean. the stairs are not safe. the shower facility is poor. the matras was old and had an opinion every time i moved in the bed.
Easy to get to off Highway 101 Comfortable bed Very clean Enough towels Spotless bathroom
