This was close to being a 4 star high value experience for me in TA. The room was cheap but clean with modern fixtures. The beds were nice and comfortable. And the shower was forceful in its water delivery and accurate with the water temp. The aircon seemed accurate and stable and the service was professional and prompt. For $80...

We are a family from Sweden and were on our way from Monterey to Los Angeles. We hade no room for the night. We went to Los Padres Inn in San Luis Obispo and discovered that it was no vacant room there either. But we were so helped by the man in Los Padres Inn. He took much time to...

I prefer budget motels when traveling as I often only spend time there to shower and sleep so that I can spend my time and dollars enjoying what the town has to offer. The Los Padres hit the mark of acceptance on all points. It is easy walking distance to restaurants, shops, the campus, and a $5.33 Uber ride back...

Obviously an older motel that could use some sprucing up. The walls are thin, fortunately we had considerate neighbors next door. It's a bit of a hike into the downtown area - we did it once and then chose to drive after that. But there's no doubt about it - it was a relatively inexpensive place to stay for a...

While older and smaller, this property is in a perfect location to walk to downtown, the school, etc. It is situated between two wonderful businesses, w/ one being a fantastic coffee house that we went to each morning. It is nestled off the street and was surprisingly quiet. The room was clean and had everything we needed. There was a...

Good value for the money - one of the least expensive motels in the area and still walk to downtown San Luis Obispo. Rooms improve each time I visit. Free WiFi. Splash Cafe - one of the nicest coffee shops in the area - is just a short walk.

We were greeted Pleasant Personnel. Staff maintained her composure even when a Guest barged-in and interrupted out Check-In paperwork. Even though I would have preferred a more inner city to be strategically closer to midtown, their location allowed for a more Quiet Atmosphere.

On this trip, saving money was important to us, and we were really happy with the value provided here for a reasonable low price. An older motel-style property, the room seemed small compared to "suite" type hotel rooms that are common these days, but it had everything we needed and was clean and quiet. Staff was helpful. Good location walkable...

I was in SLO for a very quick trip and decided to try out the Los Padres Inn this time. My son goes to Cal Poly, so we're there frequently and have stayed at many different hotels. It was a comfortable and very pleasant night. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable, and the staff friendly. I love the carports!

The hotel was conveniently located on California so walking to both CalPoly and downtown was easy. The owners of the hotel are also super sweet and helpful! This isn't a luxury hotel but it gets the job done!
