We Stayed 2 nights? The ice machine never worked. No wi-fi. Breakfast was all carbs. Linens were adequate. Only given one washcloth the 2nd night. Dim lighting in the room. Upholstered chair was stained.

This is a very old motel that showed no improvement or upkeep. Uncomfortable bedding. The only exhaust in the bathroom is a small window that does not stay open,had to be propped open by inserting a towel. Not worth a fraction of what they charged. NOT Recommended.

Traveling down the PCH, we have found many motels to be great places to stay. So, in SLO, we decided to do another deal from Hotwire. Big mistake. This place is a joke compared to similar-rated motels in San Fran, Pismo Beach, and Monterey. Even though we are vacationing, there are ants hard at work in the bathroom. We had...

It's nothing fancy but the place is well maintained, service is friendly, and the location is great, just off the highway. It's certainly not something that stands out as a 4 or 5 star place but if you are looking for a budget hotel it's quite nice and worth a look if you are passing through SLO. Free wi fi...

We needed accommodations for few days and after checking around for a clean and quiet hotel with the best rates, this was it. There were several on this street but this one was the cheapest and had the cleanest more up dated rooms. It was a short drive to attractions, the coastal views and the restaurants. Breakfast was limited to...

If you just want a place to crash for the night at least cost, this place will be OK. Got it through Expedia for $90. Clean and most everything you need, microwave, coffee pot, small frig, iron board, iron, free wifi, adequate towels, etc. Off the beaten path so noise in minimal. Several places to eat within a block. Cowgirl...

Reasonable price and good location . Easy off & on 101 freeway. Room was a little dated but overall clean. Old TV set, not too good of a picture. Window screen in bathroom torn. Noisy air conditioner. Bed was comfortable and linens clean. Wifi included, ask at desk for password. Wifi signal good and fast enough for causal web browsing....

Other hotels charge extra for children above 12 years and this does not. I walked through adjacent hotels and looked at their rooms and Americas Best Value Inn is my best choice! Neat, spacious and no obnoxious cigarette smell. Located walking distance from Creole & Japanese restaurants, Taco Bell & Jack in the Box. Our 2 teenage boys were happy!...

...excluding rude Mexican female receptionist and wifi which needs serious reconfig or nerd attention. Like so many other places in this price category, breakfast is a joke especially since it is called "continental breakfast". Good thou that one can make own coffee at own room with provided coffee machine.

I booked a room online on Saturday for a stay on Sunday the charge was $81.07 pre-paid thinking it was a discounted rate. When I arrived to check in, they were going to charge me $59. I let them know I had booked online and asked why the price was different for the same room. He said there's fees associated...
