  • 7.4

    Pleasant quiet hotel, kind and helpful staff, clean rooms with bath, silent airco. Movable desk: very practical! Wonderful quiet city in beautiful environment: easy to reach nice hiking spots.

    Main deficiency: no bar and empty minibar. No restaurant, breakfast not of international standard: disposable plates, cups and cutlery, no fried eggs, no cheeses, no fruit salad..

  • 9.6

    Location is nice

  • 7.0

    Great breakfast and dining area , nice pool. Great location. Close, but not too close, to down town. Trolley stops at front of hotel to take you down town. Great restaurants within walking distance of hotel.

    I felt it was a little expensive, even with the book it discount.

    Room smelled bad. We were by the back Door which slammed all night long!

  • 8.8

    The location was close to Cal poly. The beds were very comfortable.

    The breakfast wasn't very good. You didn't have glass wine glasses! Very disappointing. Plastic is not conducive to good wine.

    Location is minutes from the Freeway in the quiet northern section of St. Luis Obispo

    Front desk clerks not knowledgeable about directions, breakfast was substandard, dry and tasteless eggs, door of urine in stairwell between second and third floor, not competitive with Quality Inn down the road

    Business-type, functional hotel with good access to Route 101. Spacious and comfortable room with large TV. Chilled drinks vending machine near to room.

    Outdoor pool was practical but not in an attractive setting. Limited breakfast. Hairs on shower wall from previous occupants.
