The hotel is unusual and has lots of character. Our room had a corner fireplace which was nice and cozy since we arrived on a cold and rainy night. We ate at the Bistro, highly recommended both for the food and the wine. Staff are friendly and helpful. Huge, flaky croissants provided at breakfast!
First of all the positives : great location as near all the restaurants shops and bars , really lovely friendly staff and especially the bar staff . Nice continental break fast in the morning , and nothing seemed a problem , BUT. If travelling as a couple do not book room No7 , my wife and I booked a queen room , it was my fault I suppose as I didn’t read the size of the room on booking .com , it was 16m2, as we say in the uk “ Not enough room to swing a cat” , it was tiny , the bed was against the wall so whoever slept that side either had to climb over you or get off the bottom of the bed . The sink was actually in the room 3’ from the bed , no wardrobe , no fridge . They had a tray on a stand with drinks and nibbles on , they should have had a coffee machine , we’re on a fly drive holiday with two large suitcases and a travel case , put them in the room and your in trouble for floor area , this would be ideal for a single traveller not a couple . If I ever went back I’d definitely check room size before booking .…
I’m a closet hotel snob that will really only stay at a 4-star + hotel. I like nice places, what can I say? The ratings have to be good. Clean. Comfortable. Chic. Unique. Good toiletries. The list goes on. This is my 3rd stay at the Granada and it’s one of my fav places on the planet. So well done, bravo. Will be back.
Arrived here just after check in and no parking available. I was traveling solo so having to unload then go park my car two blocks away was super inconvenient. Not to mention having to walk in the rain early the next morning at check out to go get my car… I would not have stayed here if I had known the parking situation. Also the quaint bar next door was closed on Sunday..disappointing…no elevator..room extremely small, noisy..
Dearest Granada Inn, Where to begin… Granada Inn San Luis Obispo, quintessential sea side town meets old rustic, yet luxurious 1920s brick and mortar. It’s quant and private atmosphere welcomes every guest graciously to his beautiful rooms, decorated chicly and rusticity. Feathery fluffy white cotton sheets, cooly cozy thick white comforters drape across the bed netting gorgeous hand made red Persian rugs as they lie still on a cold smooth tile. A fire place to warm the room, a shower and sink space covered in elegant polished title that screams Great Gatsby, and even a small but quaint balcony to look over beautiful SLO— if you have the luxury of staying in the Granada Queen— as you sip your mornings brew. The short halls guide you downward and through a leather filled lounge with yet another fire place to enjoy many a cocktail, surrounded by century old brick and wood that nearly transports you to another time. Below this ether is the dinner room, both out side and in, where guest enjoy some of the finest cuisine and drinks San Luis Obispo has to offer. Granada Inn is the full experience, an immersion to another place with rotary phones and simpler times. With an environment so chicly rustic and quaintly cozy, you’d be hard pressed to leave your room. It does beg the question… why stay anywhere else? I hope you all enjoy your stay as much as I have, because just like I, you’ll be coming back for seconds. -Garrett (Actor/Writer)…
This hotel is more appropriate for those used to hostel travel - no where near a 5 star establishment. Check in was easy, it’s in a wonderful location to downtown and the Bistro is superb. It’s in a charming building but not functional as a hotel. Parking offered during our stay was 2 blocks away AND we weren’t notified it was that far until we checked in. By then it was too late to cancel - according to front desk staff. All rooms are on second floor and no elevator was provided. The room was very cramped very claustrophobic with too much furniture and the “closet” was a joke! A glass cubicle that took up approximately four feet of a 200 foot room with only two hangers. The bed was piled with pillows but no where to stash them. The toilet was in a closet, the sink in the bedroom room. The shower was incredibly tiny. Additionally the TV in room did not work and the staff could not get it to function. (One of the young desk clerks said she didn’t own a TV and couldn’t operate the remotes.) After 45 minutes of fiddling they told us we had to change rooms. This second room was larger BUT the air conditioner did not work. A fan provided was inappropriately large for the room and took up too much room to be useful. Only grooming products were provided gratuitously. There was a daily amenities fee of $20, but no real amenities were provided. The hotel did not even provide drinking waters. All in all a real letdown.…
Everything about this hotel was awesome!!!. We were given an incredible glass of rosè and then given a very educated tour of the hotel. Brayden even was so sweet to even have our bottles of wine on ice for is so we could enjoy then when we returned. I will definitely be back to this hotel as its so quaint, and very inviting. I also love the location...right in the middle of downtown...everything is in walking distance. Thank you to Brayden and the team at the Granada hotel for making our stay amazing
This is a lovely hotel, in a good location, but our experience was ruined by the noisy hotel ventilation. Everyone on the reception desk knows that there is a problem with comments such as “yes it is noisy sometimes” but depending who you talk to depends on the reason why it’s noisy. Some saying it’s only one half of the building that has a problem, others saying it was the floor our room was on and another it’s only noisy in our room. All I know is that we had a broken night’s sleep when they turned the ventilation pump on at 6am!! Not good!!
The hotel is beautiful and very inviting. Almost more important, though, are the staff - they are amazing! We stayed just one night (we'll be back!) but were made to feel so at home and welcome by everyone. From Tati (sp?) to the lovely hostess at the restaurant, as well as the shop next door, everyone was so kind and so helpful. When we left we met up with a bunch of friends and told all of them that they have to go to SLO and stay at the Granada. Thank you for the lovely accommodations and the even better staff!
Stayed here overnight on a business trip. The Granada turned out to be charming and perfect. Quiet room, nice snack and bev offerings in the room at very fair prices, good breakfast with indoor or outdoor areas, great parking on the property, and one of the nicest bars you'll find anywhere for a nightcap. We usually stay at Pismo Beach, but next time we're going to take a day or two at the Granada in SLO itself and explore the record, book and even photography stores downtown.
