A small inn close to downtown. No frills. Excellent coffee and breakfast options are just a short walk away. Well maintained property provides the basics for a comfortable stay. Free parking on site but it can be a little difficult to maneuver around longer vehicles.

This is a VERY inexpensive hotel for where it is located, less than half the price of my usual favorite that was fully booked. It is a little bit funky, but overall a good value for what is provided. My room was roomy, clean, and had everything I needed for a quick stay while moving my daughter in at Cal...

We were a group of 15 family members traveling around California. SLO was just an overnight stay. The hotel is going to be going through some remodeling. It's a quaint place, well-loved but it's the owners that made me write such a positive review. We had a problem with one of the rooms and they couldn't have been nicer in...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Less than 10 minute walk to main part of downtown, closer than other hotels. Parking in front of your room. Free Wifi and good cable, air conditioning and heating. While there is no breakfast, there are 3 cafes right across the street. Trolley stop is a minute walk away. Rooms are small and old, but...

Compared to most places in SLO in summer the price is more affordable but you still have to fork out way more than what this place is worth. Rooms are small, TV and Fridge are Jurassic ,your airco is a portable fan, the shower head is at 5 ft so you have to squat if you're as tall as me....

The motel called Los Padres was a nice little family run motel. The woman at the front was friendly although a little distant and she had everything I needed ready for me. She let me park the motorcycle in a carport and gave me all the information about SLO.

Located within 20 minutes walk to downtown. This is basic and affordable establishment, room #14 is without air conditioning, not a problem if you leave the window open. Staying here on my way to San Francisco, good for a night otherwise go choose something better.

There was a mix up on my reservation (my fault, not their's) and they quickly and kindly fixed the error. The room was comfortable and well located in San Luis Obispo with easy access to downtown and the 101 freeway.
