Excellent choice for weary travelers looking for a pit stop. Pleasant professional staff and clean accommodations. Good breakfast choices and easy access.

Everything was great! Breakfast in the morning, relatively quiet for a hotel on a weekend and very clean. Thank you for a great trip!

Not what I hoped for

Posted 12-Apr-2016
When we checked in we we're out into two queens and when asked to switch hotel jargon was thrown about and I was told, "at least they tried." Won't be back! There was a beer can behind the window too!

Good Hotel to sleep in.

Posted 09-Apr-2016
This hotel gives you a decent place to stay at a reasonable rate for the area. We frequently use this hotel when we visit SLO. With so many great things to do in the area, we don't spend much time in the hotel anyway, so it's good enough for what we need. The morning breakfast which is included offers some quick ready to go snacks for the kids, but you have to get there before 9:30 am when they close up.

Nice stop on your way up or down the coast

Posted 01-Mar-2016
Pros: Staff, rooms seems clean and comfortable
Location: 3 miles to the beach and Pismo pier. Take a walk down the beach. Stop for cocktails, fried shrimp and chowder at the restaurant at base of pier.
Great for a quick overnight stay on the way up or down the coast. Rooms were very clean and nicely furnished. Staff was very pleasant, and efficient at both check-in and check-out. Breakfast was above average, including a nice selection of hot items (omelettes , delicious fresh biscuits and cinnamon rolls), as well as oatmeal, yogurts, and fresh whole fruits). The pool looked very inviting but we did not have a chance to take advantage of it. It's not a "destination" hotel for an extended stay, but comfortable if you're in the area and need a nice place to stay. The beach is only a couple of miles away and definitely worth a visit if you can get there. It is right off the freeway, and near train tracks, but we were not bothered by either.

Nice hotel close to the beach.

Posted 17-Feb-2016 on Orbitz
Very nice and clean place to stay and it's only a few minutes away from pismo beach and oceano dunes. There are also various shopping centers near it and many places to eat. But the best place eat is right next door to it, Aj Spurs is one of the best stake house in groover beach. I would stay here again if I'm ever in the the area.

Old hotel - Needs renovations

Posted 14-Feb-2016
Cons: Everything
Location: Great location -
They originally had us in on a room that smelled like mold and the sheets looked dirty. The hotel overall is very old and could use an update in pretty much every area. From carpets; to towels (smelled); to furniture; to sheets; paint inside is cracked and peeling off. I would say this is a 2 star hotel. I have stayed at other holiday inn hotels in CA and this is probably lowest quality one.
