My friend and I took a road trip down the coast and stopped here along the way. The more recent reviews are correct-- the inn looks a little rough from the outside but everything has been remodeled on the inside. Our room had a fresh scent when we walked in and was clean and modern. The front desk clerk was...

On Wednesday night, I booked a room online for Friday night, then I canceled it online 6 minutes later. I called the hotel to make sure it was canceled and they told me they would still charge my credit card $139.99 because I canceled within 48 hours of the reservation. They said it was their policy and I should have...

The rate was excellent the room has 2 queen beds, Bathroom is clean and big enough, and it also has microwave, frigobar, clean towels. The breakfast was not so food, only cofre and some bread, but it was ok.

Comfy beds, and we liked that the room has a mini fridge & microwave (both of which worked well). The room was simple but very clean. The shower had hot water, even after 45 minutes. The bed was very comfortable too! The continental breakfast had some very yummy waffles. The location was very convenient and even though it was next...

We stayed here because all of the hotels in the area were booked or over $350 for the night. I paid almost $200 for the Sat after 4th of July to attend a SLO camp. Service was fine at check in. The room smelled really bad when we walked in. Air conditioning system was very loud. The carpet was disgusting....

This hotel had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, in a hotel! The manager (Owner?) could not have been more helpful or courteous. Yes, it is not for those who are looking for a five-star hotel, but if you are looking for modest accommodation at a very reasonable price, this is it, The motel appears to be...

This was the ONLY hotel available in San Luis and looking back, we should have pushed ahead and found lodging somewhere else along our route. Paid $227. for a sad little motel. I will admit to it looking clean and the bed was comfortable. That is the only plus we could find. Freeway noise. Guest noise. Bathroom door (101) would...

Stopped in late for the night. Skeptical since the reviews were not the best but I really enjoyed it. The room was big and clean. Beds were comfortable and the bedding was new. Bathroom was small but that was no big deal. I would definitely consider trying another Inn in another city based on our nice experience.

we booked this because we had stayed at others in the chain and been very pleased with them. Made the booking by telephone and booked a handicap accessible room. On arrival we were given a room next door to the accessible one and told that this was suitable - it wasn't! The room was quite shabby, no plug in the...

Horrible. This has been a nightmare. Dirty. No fresh air. No breakfast! NOTHING!! First the one room was no finished. Then the second room was not done and then we had to ask the cleaning woman to come back cleaning cause there were grass and crumble on the carpet floor and hair in the bathroom. In the night noisy.
