Positive Reviews

Comfortable rooms

As guests pointed out, the rooms are very clean, relatively spacious and come with helpful amenities like cable programming, a fridge, a microwave and reliable free Wi-Fi. Several noted that the bathrooms had been recently upgraded and now include new shower heads and modern granite countertops and shower stalls.

Good value for your money

Guests noted that the motel included a heated pool, which was decently sized, ice machines and a lovely view of the mountains. They also liked the free pastries, coffee and orange juice in the morning.

Conveniently located

The hotel is located right off the highway, which makes travel across the area fairly simple and quick, and you can walk to several restaurants, the Cal Tech campus and downtown San Luis Obispo.

Negative Reviews

A bit dated

Guests noted that the exterior of the motel could use some attention, but the interior has been partially renovated. Nevertheless, despite the fresh paint and new mattresses, the rooms do still appear somewhat old. Guests mentioned that the curtains were frayed and stained and the furniture was quite worn, which presents a rather old-fashioned appearance.

Staff not always perfect

As several guests pointed out, the front-desk staff can be a bit aloof and curt at times and seems as though only providing as little information as possible during the check-in process.

Noise might be a bit bothersome

A few guests mentioned that the traffic noise from the nearby highway and other guests' conversation and activities were a bit noisy at times.
