Both were quiet. My coworker stayed on the first floor and could hear pipes clanking in the early morning. The staff was extremely helpful...

This hotel is newly renovated. Rooms are spacious and clean. Plentiful continental breakfast is provided. Pool is perfect for a quick swim or dip. Cookies provided at check in. Staff was super helpful and kind. Would definitely recommend and return. Can walk the easy mile to downtown if needed but a trolley is also an option.

This hotel needs some updated photos. We almost didn't stay here because although this hotel kept coming up on a search of customer reviewed hotels rated over 4 in the San Luis Obispo area, the photos were dark and unattractive. Due to the customer rating, and the fact that we were already in the San Luis Obispo area, we decided...

We stayed here one night passing through the SLO area and couldn't have been more pleased. Rooms are clean, quiet, and a good size. The outdoor pool was lovely and very clean.

Thank you for your kind review Mary A!
