This was a very a nice hotel. They were extremely accomadating considering we called the day before and needed 20 plus rooms since our girls had a CIF game in Arroyo Grande. The beds and and the rooms were very comfortable. The only thing that I could complain about was the breakfast was not very good.

We have stayed here several times over the past few years on our way back to Oregon from Arizona. We have two small dogs so pet friendly is a must. The rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly and welcoming. We will of course be back.

I was very pleased with this hotel. VERY clean and beds were extremely comfortable. The bathrooms were large with plenty of counter space. LOVED the vanity for a woman's makeup/hair use. The maid staff were very nice...Gloria was a sweet lady. Front desk was very helpful. I would stay here again!

We stayed two nights in January. We had our dog along for the trip. Staff was helpful, rooms were clean and breakfast was good. Only complaint was with other dog owners that do not clean up after their dogs. The hotel had nice lit areas to walk dog.

I recommend this location great staff and clean rooms and ample parking. Breakfast was basic but good selection of coffee, juice,fruits, yogurt, bagels and Belgium waffles. I checked in late the night before with no problems. Night staff and morning staff including housecleaning staff were very helpful.
