“What a find - the best accommodation of this nature you will likely find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

We were so pleasantly surprised by this hotel/motel. We had a king suite on the ground floor (a word of warning - if you are noise sensitive you'd be better to book on the top floor), however the room was huge with a separate bedroom area with lots of counter space. The lighting was good and the amenities were superb. The pool and hot tub area are lovely and the included breakfast is served in a large dining room poolside or you can load up a tray and sit by the pool or take it back to your room. Free drinks are served in the bar from 5-7 (yes, free!) and a poolside barbeque for guests if available where prices range from $2 for a smokie to the high of $6 for a steak sandwich - all meals including salad. Sit in the bar with your free drinks, order up your barbequed dinner and enjoy your stay! Walking distance to downtown. The only complaint was that the front desk staff person we spoke to wasn't well informed and told us there were no hikes in the nearby mountains when we asked (there are lots).

Room Tip: If noise sensitive ask for a top floor room away from the pool.

Thank you for telling us about your stay while visiting our hotel. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay and were able to take advantage of the many amenities we offer. Many of our guests choose to walk downtown however; we do offer a complimentary shuttle service to downtown as well. One option a lot of our guest choose is to walk downtown and then called for the shuttle to be picked up. You are correct, there are many great hikes very close to the hotel. I have done many of them myself and I will inform the front desk on the hikes that I would recommend.

We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are able to visit San Luis Obispo.

Thank you,

We stayed here one night with our 3 teenage boys on our way from San Francisco to Los Angeles and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms were clean and comfortable and while the boys made use of the pool and spa, we enjoyed the complimentary happy hour wine and beer. We stayed on for the hotel bbq - it was cheap and pretty basic but was perfect for us after a long day in the car. The hot breakfast the next morning was one of the best we had in our month away! I'd definitely recommend the hotel to any families needing accommodation in SLO.

Thank you for telling us about your stay at our hotel. It is always great to hear how we helped a family enjoy their time together. Thank you for providing your recommendation to other families needing accommodations in San Luis Obispo. We provide the barbecue to our guests that prefer a good, quick, and inexpensive meal with the convenience of staying on the hotel property. It was good read that the barbecue worked out well for you and your family.

We hope to see you and your family again the next time you're able to visit San Luis Obispo.

Thank you,

There are some negative points about this hotel but they're relatively insignificant when compared with the excellent service provided when we left some items behind, hence my 5/5 rating.

We were travelling across the US for two months and when we realised we'd left our (brand new) jackets behind, housekeeping was kind enough to forward them to our San Francisco hotel. The items were duly waiting when we arrived, saving us from the hassle of finding suitable replacements and the disappointment of losing them.

Yes, the decor is dated, yes the bathroom is small. But it's clean, very spacious and good value. There are nice extras I wouldn't necessarily expect from a motel, such as a pool and a happy hour. Breakfast was decent and fresh because it's cooked to order. It is on the edge of town but the walk is not too far and perfectly pleasant.

I wouldn't stay for a week but it's a perfectly good motel for a night or two.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay at our hotel on tripadvisor. We are fortunate to have a very good housekeeping department. It was great to hear that they "went above and beyond" to get your items back to you quickly and efficiently. Nice to see that you rated us five out of five. We have a very good staff and they will appreciate knowing that you think highly of our hotel.

Thank you,

This is a great hotel! When I arrived, I was a bit disappointed because I thought it looked like a central casting motel. However, before I could even get to my room, I was sold. I asked the fellow checking me in if he knew where the firm I was visiting was located. Without a word, the gal working at the other end of the desk looked it up and gave me hand written directions.

The room was spacious and clean, had everything one could ask for. Breakfast was terrific, and Enrique was kind enough to open fifteen minutes early to accommodate my early schedule. Whipped up an omelet at 6:15. Sweet man.

Once again the front desk came through by recommending Blue for dinner. Wow. I skipped the happy hour and bbq, but walked by and it looked great.

This staff could work at the Four Seasons. Really. Thank you so much for such a great experience.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review of our hotel. It was great to read that both the front desk staff and the café staff helped you out with your needs while you were here. I will let in Enrique know that I appreciate his extra effort in opening early so he could make up your omelet for breakfast. We have a very good staff and it is nice to know that they responded well to your needs. I appreciate hearing about the details of your stay.

We look forward to seeing you again next time business or pleasure brings you to San Luis Obispo.

Thank you,

We have stayed at the Quality Suites in SLO twice now on business, and it is one of my favourite hotels. The rooms are huge, equipped with a flat screen TV in both the lounge and bedroom plus everything else you would expect in terms of amenities. The staff are fantastic - really friendly and accommodating. There is a free shuttle car that can get you around SLO, and free drinks in the bar every evening. Oh, and free cookies! The breakfast is also pretty good. Free wifi too. A winner!
