Quality Suites San Luis Obispo
Ranked #3 of 32 Hotels in San Luis Obispo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Stayed here November 2011 as the midpoint on the drive from San Fran to LA.

Aussie tourists driving a big Nissan minivan (nicknamed the pig!). The quality suites was just perfect after a day of twists and hairpin turns down the coast.

Arrived just on happy hour, made to feel very welcome. A comfortable room and excellent pool. The staff very happy to drop us off at a local restaurant and pick us up again after.

After stays in various big cities around the country San Luis was a nice contrast, I later heard it described as the most Californian town in America. I wish we had made time for another night or two.

Room Tip: Happy hour worth attending. Staff will operate a courtesy service to local restaurants.

Thank you for telling us about your stay at our hotel in posting your review on trip advisor. We wished you would have been able to stay longer as well. It is always good to hear that you arrived just in time for our complimentary beer and wine tasting reception. That has been mentioned as one of our favorite amenities amongst our guest. We think San Luis Obispo is a great town and it was nice to see that you found it enjoyable as well.

We look forward to seeing you again and hope you reserve two or three nights here the next time you're able to visit.

Thank you,

George Newland

At this point, we've stayed here numerous times, all including groups of family and this time friends, too. We love the atmosphere and how useful the room set-up and community spaces are for numbers of people there together. The breakfast room is spacious with a very nice variety of food and drink. The patio/pool area is comfortable for sitting or visiting with heaters at night. The cantina offers a great 'manager's' reception that people we've been with have really enjoyed. The lobby is even spacious and cozy for sitting at the same time. The rooms are clean with refrigerator/microwave/sink in the living room portion and the pull-out sofa. The location is good between freeway and downtown; that is a short drive or good walk (more than a few blocks, but manageable for many). Too many restaraunt choices to mention.

Thank you for conveying your most recent stay with us on tripadvisor. It is great for us to see when our guests come and continue to visit numerous times. Seeing guests continue to visit makes us feel good about the experience that we are providing. One of the most rewarding things for us is to see family and friends enjoying each other and their stay at our hotel. We have been told by many of our guests that are public areas worked very well for gathering of family and friends. It was nice to hear that you continue to enjoy the many amenities that we provide.

We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit to our hotel.

Thank you,

Had never stayed in a Quality Suites hotel before. If the San Luis Obispo hotel is indicative of the chain, we will absolutely be staying in others.
The room was clean and odor-free. Grounds well kept. What we like best, though, was that there are separate sleeping and sitting areas that can be closed off from each other. This is ideal if one person wants to sleep while the other does not. Both rooms have flat-screen TVs. This layout is a great choice for couples who may want to keep different hours or have different choices in entertainment while in the room.

We frequently stay here twice a month as of early 2010 and We have yet to be dissapointed, Maintenance is quick to respond, Cleaning services are quick and efficient, Employees are always very humble, The Gym is great, Complimentary breakfast is GREAT! We just recently stayed 3/3/12 and someone in our group misplaced a diamond ring we called back a week later once we noticed it was gone, not really expecting much but sure enough they called back the next buisness day early in the morning to let us know their cleaning crew turned it in! THATS FANTASTIC!!!!! how many genuine people do you know that would do that these days , not knowing the person it belongs to, we are very greatfull and at our next visit we will be meeting the employee and giving her compensation! A Good Deed Never Goes Unnoticed!!

Thank you for ”noticing our good deed” and for taking the time to post your experience with our hotel on Tripadvisor. We have very good and honest associates here at the Quality Suites.

We were so pleasantly surprised by this hotel/motel. We had a king suite on the ground floor (a word of warning - if you are noise sensitive you'd be better to book on the top floor), however the room was huge with a separate bedroom area with lots of counter space. The lighting was good and the amenities were superb. The pool and hot tub area are lovely and the included breakfast is served in a large dining room poolside or you can load up a tray and sit by the pool or take it back to your room. Free drinks are served in the bar from 5-7 (yes, free!) and a poolside barbeque for guests if available where prices range from $2 for a smokie to the high of $6 for a steak sandwich - all meals including salad. Sit in the bar with your free drinks, order up your barbequed dinner and enjoy your stay! Walking distance to downtown. The only complaint was that the front desk staff person we spoke to wasn't well informed and told us there were no hikes in the nearby mountains when we asked (there are lots).

Room Tip: If noise sensitive ask for a top floor room away from the pool.

Thank you for telling us about your stay while visiting our hotel. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay and were able to take advantage of the many amenities we offer. Many of our guests choose to walk downtown however; we do offer a complimentary shuttle service to downtown as well. One option a lot of our guest choose is to walk downtown and then called for the shuttle to be picked up. You are correct, there are many great hikes very close to the hotel. I have done many of them myself and I will inform the front desk on the hikes that I would recommend.

We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are able to visit San Luis Obispo.

Thank you,
