Positive Reviews

Great staff

One of the biggest positives about the Sunbeam Motel, at least in the opinion of most previous guests, is the high level of customer service provided by the staff. Courteous and accommodating, the staff will do what they can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Good location

Most past visitors felt the location of the motel was convenient. Positioned close to the town center of San Luis Obispo, a number of local attractions - such as the Farmers Market and Cal Poly State University - are within walking distance from the motel.

Small but comfortable rooms

Despite some reports of outside noise becoming a disturbance, the rooms at the Sunbeam Motel have been adjudged clean and comfortable by the majority of previous visitors. In addition, the rooms, although compact in size, are considered well-equipped with a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker.

Negative Reviews

Rough around the edges

Although the rooms at the Sunbeam Motel are generally well received, they have received some criticism for being dated and worn down. This includes certain furnishings and décor showing signs of wear and tear. Furthermore, on some occasions past guests have reported that certain amenities were not working as intended.

Limited on-site parking

Although free on-site parking is one of the biggest advantages of the motel - at least initially - a number of guests have reported difficulties with this aspect of the accommodation. Along with the spaces being tight which has made parking larger vehicles problematic in the past, the amount of parking spots are also supposedly limited.

No-thrills accommodation

The Sunbeam Motel has very little in the way of facilities, with no recreational activities or extended dining options provided. However, as a simple base to explore the area, the motel has met the requirements of past guests.
