    Absolutely beautiful area.

    Absolutely beautiful area. Very charming downtown with a wide variety of restaurants and shops. Beaches a short drive away. Highly recommend SLO Provisions for breakfast. El Esquina for a delicious meal. Farmers Market on Thursday nights give a wonderful sense of local products, foods and services. Very easy to walk around downtown. Morro Bay is an easy 20 min away. A beautiful drive. Morro Bay is a charming beach filled with local surfers, people walking their dogs or just hanging out to soak in the waves and surrounding beauty.

    Close to downtown, shopping and restaurants to include the famous Madonna Inn. We were there to visit our student at CalPoly. Great amenities for our family. Always nice to have extra space in our room with the living room/dining area.

    Very pleasant town with access to beautiful hikes. Easy to get around. I loved how unique all the different buildings and houses were. Food was only decent, but not terrible. Good breweries, too! Very walkable. The highlight was going to the hot spring resort for their hour-use tubs.

    Beautiful place to visit.

    Beautiful place to visit. University town with a lovely walkable downtown. Lots of restaurants. Many people biking. Close to Pismo and Avila Beach, Morro Bay (and Rock) and the gorgeous central coast.Always love coming to SLO but it can be very pricey. This was a quick family visit so didn’t eat out much. Always find time for a latte at Scout coffee. If you are on a budget, check out hotel prices in advance prior to choosing dates. Inexpensive places jump to over $200 per night during certain weekends.

    We went for an early morning run up the convenient bike path into SLO. We had a great tour of the city on foot and visited the El Camino Real sites and the Mission. We ran back through the hills and had a great view of the surrounding areas. Worth returning to visit. High up on the historic trail.

    Great downtown with lots of restaurants and shops. Safe and easy to get around on foot or with car. Parking is expensive ($3-4/hr) but easily available. Airport is a breeze to get in and out. Museums, etc are mostly on a thur-sunday schedule.

    I used to live in SLO and always wanted to stay at Granada Hotel. I’m happy to report that it lived up to my expectations! The hotel is beautifully designed with an excellent location in downtown SLO. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that there is breakfast included in the room rate, even though this isn’t mentioned on booking.com. The alleyway to the parking lot is small as others have mentioned, but I was able to drive my Toyota Rav4 in and out every day without any issues

    I loved how clean this place was. Our room was spotless and all of our toiletries and towels were super clean. Plus excellent location right off the freeway. A quick drive away from Pismo Beach and in walking distance of downtown San Luis Obispo. We had excellent food on this trip, even got pizza delivered to our room one night. We loved being able to walk around downtown SLO and come back to a room that wasn't right in the center of the foot traffic.

    The room was much larger than we thought it would be as many of the hotels in San Luis Obispo are small. Breakfast was self serve, simple and easy. The rooms and decor seemed like they were recently updated and were very clean. Plenty of parking, very friendly front desk staff. Our room, (2 queen beds) also had a balcony with table and chairs.

    I like the central location of this hotel. It is located a few miles away from downtown San Luis Obispo, the area's wine country, and nearby cities like Pismo Beach and Avila Beach. The hotel is located near stores, supermarkets, and gas stations. The surrounding area looks safe. The staff is courteous and helpful.

    This was a cute Inn. The room we stayed in had a comfortable king size bed and there was a sitting area with a loveseat. It was a large room and it was quiet. All of the staff associated with the inn were friendly and kind. Hotel was at the end of a series of standard hotels but this one was more unique.

    What a fabulous hotel!! From being greeted by friendly staff to opening the door to a gorgeous room and bathroom. The decor was beautiful and the room was spacious for 3 people. I would highly recommend staying here if you are visiting the area. The breakfast scones and coffee were an added treat.

    This is a small motel near the downtown area of SLO. Nothing too fancy but very adequate and reasonably priced. The shower was hot, AC worked great, parking very close to the room and 15 min walk to downtown SLO. We booked it on short notice and worked out just fine. I would stay again.
