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!

The front desk was very nice. The room was old, but clean. Some paint peeling, old wood, but everything was clean. We had 2 queen beds, and the room was very spacious, much larger than I expected. The only bad thing, there is a glass panel in the door and it let in a lot of light at night. I...

My stay was easy-going, joyful and convenient. The orange and yellow roses were in full bloom at the entrance complementing the great California vibe of Los Padres Inn. The rooms were clean, and comfortable. A friend and I shared with two queens, the room size was perfect. The convenient location is just a few blocks from the highway and also...
