Pet/dog friendly? Not really. Website mentions dogs OK in select rooms. When we arrived with our 13 lb. non-shedding dog we learned that there is only one room that pets are allowed in. Not exactly what we'd call dog friendly. We decided to not stay and continue on our journey. With that said, person at the Inn was very friendly,...

We arrived at the Inn after the innkeepers had left for the night, this was not a problem though as we had been given excellent instructions as to how to access the house and our room. Due to an Amtrak breakdown it was 1am when we arrived, the plate with delicious cakes on the table in the room, was very...

This past weekend (February, 2017) 17 of us, family and friends, descended on the Garden Street Inn (with much advance notice) to celebrate the 70th birthday of my husband. The Garden Street Inn handled the friendly onslaught with calm and aplomb. The suites are particularly roomy, the building is solid as a rock and VERY quiet at night and the...

In the category of B&B, this is a great choice. 17 of us (family and friends, all adults), took over most of the rooms in the Garden Street Inn for the Presidents' Day weekend. Since a number of the rooms are suites, with their own sitting area, we had lots of options for gathering together. We could gather in the...

First time at a bed and breakfast. The hotel was charming. The staff was pleasant. Parking is off-site at $10 per night. This is one of the best located places to stay to be within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of SLO. Breakfast (eggs benedict on our stay) was as good as any restaurant. "Our Town" room is...

The Garden Street Inn is such a rare and wonderful find. A beautifully restored Victorian in the city center, GSI goes to extra lengths to make sure your stay with them is very comfortable and you receive the personalized attention you would get if you were visiting a long time friend in the city. Staff are well-versed on all SLO...

All the staff were very accommodating and informative about the changes in S.L.O. The breakfasts were varied and delicious. The cookies, every night, were a nice touch. I would recommend Garden Street Inn to anyone who plans to visit the area.

Being right in the heart of old San Luis Obispo allowed for the freedom to park the car and walk around historic downtown. Literally only a 5 minute walk to the old Mission, shops, restaurants and the creekside paths. Fresh breakfast every morning, cookies at night, and a super comfy bed/room. Staff was friendly and service was top notch.

We have been looking at this B&B for many a years while visiting here in SLO. We went to Cal Poly and have returned to visit the area many a times for over 30 years. This past October we finally bit the bullet and stayed here for one night on our way to LA. We stayed on a Thursday, which...

I read the recent negative reviews, and they are correct that this is not a truly upscale inn. However, our room was super clean (Field of Dreams) with great outdoor space nearby. We loved that area, but I can imagine a lack of privacy if the Inn were full. Paul served an amazing breakfast and was helpful in finding us...
