The check-in process at this hotel was especially friendly and efficient. Then we went to our room, which was in the same building as the front desk. (I think there are multiple buildings.) There is only one elevator, and it is SLOOOW! The stairs are nicely lighted and carpeted and were better for us. The room was large and comfortable...

Overnight stay to see Guys and Dolls at the SLO Little Theater. Check in was fast,friendly, and easy. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. It was raining, so we were unable to use the pool and hot tub as we usually do. Walls a little thin could here noise from the next room. All in all a great stay.

I brought my two daughters to a soccer ID camp at the university. We stayed at the Lamplighter Hotel for its close proximity to the campus. We were not disappointed, it is a short 5 minutes to the campus and even less to downtown SLO! We had booked a Queen bed room through Expedia, but was told i couldn't upgrade...

Entry door filthy. Inside and out, literally black all over it. The Windows matched, black filth, literally not exaggerating, frame to open window. Windows covered in hand prints and smudges, and a q-tip in the tract. Mold on bathroom ceiling. Food had been spilled x2 and one was chunky and fuzzy ( hum, how long has that been there) on...

People were threatening to kill each other and yelling outside of our room. The walls are so thin you can hear the people in the next room having sex, and also the conversation they had after. The entire building shakes any time a door closes or somebody walks on the balcony.

I reserved my room online and paid extra for the balcony room, thinking with would be nice to have coffee on in the morning. After settling in for the night I noticed there was no balcony. It was late, so we went to bed to discuss this with the front desk in the morning - hoping for a price adjustment....

Got a last minute booking. Very friendly staff, a great one bedroom apartment really, well sound insulated, comfortable beds, a good breakfast included. And at at a price that wouldn't allow you to even look in the direction of a hotel in SF or LA! What else could you ask for.
