It was inexpensive.
Some one smoked near me within a nonesmoking area and i smelled it each time they lit up. Also i had to go back 3 times to get a working key card.
Quiet and convenient.
It felt like a room in a horror movie
Convenience to Hwy 101 Comfortable bed Clean room
Slight smokey smell in room which we got used to, and then was fine. Breakfast is very sweet, simply coffee, cheap juice, and refined sugary pastries.
Convenient to the highway, great for getting on and off for an overnight stay.
The room was comfortable for the price.
The air conditioner needed a good cleaning and didn't work properly. And you shouldn't advertise a continental breakfast when it's just coffee old apples and frozen tiny muffins. Lower your prices for returning guests.
It was fine for the cost.
Just had continental breakfast, had to eat at Denny's, had a few ants in room, not enough outlets, the ones they had were big and our plugs fell out.
Linens were shabby in fact the entire room was pretty shabby.
the location was close to family members and excellent shopping the scenery was awesome !! It's up the hill away from freeway noise
Front desk attendant on 9/16 Did not go out of her way to be friendly and she is your first point of contact for the Inn. she needs some training , This is the customers first impression of the Inn . She acted annoyed when we asked about the continental breakfast the following morning . Have a sign that reads breakfast from 8:00am -10:00am then ppl won't ask. What she does not know is that we are professional waiters from a 5 star hotel and we pick up on these cues. Verbal or non verbal .
Location from cal poly and everything else.
It smelled, dirty,
The staff listened attentively to our concerns and appeared anxious to please.
TV remote did not work. TV did not have the 3 major network stations available or due to language barrier, the staff was not able to understand our concern re availability of these stations.
everything was great
easily accessible from the freeway not too far from town
old, dingy, threadbare towels thin walls when the nextdoor neighbor opened/closed the room door, the walls in my room shook selections for continental breakfast-
If you are looking for a clean, comfortable room with a very pleasant staff at a great price, look no further.
Liked the shower and the room was big And nice and clean
The air. Didn't work very well and it was a warm night. The bed was. Kinda hard.
- AC didn't work in my room - some of the facilities need updating
$5 was cheaper than neighborhood hotels.
Noise at refrigerator. Poor breakfast ever.(menu and place)
Gate to pool has bolt sticking out that injured my partner. Reception staff was quite abrupt to each other which made us feel awkward.
Location! Walking distance to downtown SLO. Easy access to freeway for day trips. Decent price for motel. In room mini fridge, microwave, hair dryer, and ironing board/iron. Shower pressure. Nice TV.
Dirty socks in drawer, dirty washrag hanging on shower head. Screws holding headboard to wall yanked out. Need to turn on a/c to drown out the noise from other hotel guests at night. Free breakfast was a diabetic coma, we only got coffee once. Dated decor and linens.
great location -
all linens [towels, bed sheets are dirty. the smell is bad as in they never changed it. the bed sheet smell so bad. they said breakfast is continental but there is nothing there but apples, cupcake and 2 kinds of very sweet pastries, orange juice and not to hot coffee.... we ended up going to denny's
Big comfortable clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff
Poor breakfast (only sweets), no wi-fi in the room (we had to get out of the room to connect)
Clean, well positioned motel. Excellent for a one night stay.
Breakfast 'room' was tiny with seating for 4 maximum. Not a lot of choice of breakfast items. Whoever had made up our bed had put the bottom sheet on the wrong way round so it stopped almost two feet from the bottom of the bed!
staff location cleanliness
Stayed for one night in passing. Clean and spacious motel room. No qualms if we had to stay there again.
Breakfast options not great but you're five mins from downtown and great restaurants.
