If you want to stay in a closet, this is the place

Posted 17-Sep-2016
$329 a night for a room where a full bed is again the wall & when reservation said "classic room with queen size bed". The room was as big as a walking closet. U can't get out of one side of the bed if u r 2. Complain the next morning at front desk. They didn't care as I booked via a third party. This hotel is a total rip off.

Great boutique hotel in the center of town

Posted 24-Aug-2016
We had a short trip to SLO earlier this month and were looking for a hotel that would place us in the middle of town since this was our first time staying but also with nice amenities. GHB had both--it is walking distance from all of the shopping and restaurants, but also has a unique, boutique feel, similar to a high end B&B. The staff was exceptional. Eva, the manager, was extremely helpful in making sure our stay was seamless. I would definitely recommend GHB!

Quaint hotel, Pleasant Stay

Posted 22-Aug-2016
Pros: Nice location, great staff, complementary wine upon arrival and coffee in the morning, guest lounge
Cons: Room was a little small.
We had a great time staying at this hotel and it was a perfect place to stop for a night on our trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. We arrived at the hotel late after a long day of driving, and were greeted with a very friendly staff member and a complementary glass of their house rose wine. The staff member then helped us take our bags to our room and showed us the lounge area for hotel guests. It is located on the second floor, and you can place an order down to the restaurant below and they will bring the order up to you and just bill your room. It was a nice little area to sit and relax, and there was a chess table and some other games in there you could play, as well as an outdoor seating area. The room itself had everything we needed but was very small, and while it was perfect for us to crash in for one night it may have been difficult to stay there for an extended period of time. The next morning they had complementary coffee and tea, and had a breakfast menu you could order from. We chose to have breakfast elsewhere in the city, but I did take advantage of the free coffee and sat for a bit in the lounge area. I would definitely recommend staying here if you need a stopping point on a west coast drive.

A blend of old school charm and simple modern

Posted 19-Jul-2016
Pros: Very groovy bar and bistro scene,with young nice servers who seem to like their job. Food was great!
Location: Visit the mission visit Cal Poly. Shop in town. Close to th beach
The hotel has been beautifully restored with great eclectic input. It's very pretty to be upstairs on the second floort's lovely appointed patio. Coffee tea and water are prettily arranged for self service although with a handy phone one can call downstairs for a delicious bistro prepared menu for food that is delivered quickly and by a charming, helpful staff.

Hotel incrível!

O hotel foi um dos escolhidos na minha viagem pela costa da Califórnia. Saindo de Carmel, esse seria a próxima pernoite. O hotel é sensacional. Pequeno, elegante e charmoso. Na recepção fomos surpreendidos pelo excelente atendimento, além de taças de espumante rosé de uma vinícola californiana, a qual pertence aos donos do hotel. O hotel não tem elevador, mas não se preocupe com as malas, eles levam todas pra você. O quarto é confortável, tudo integrado. O chuveiro tem portas de vidro transparentes, então se quiser privacidade, não a terá. A cama é sensacional. Foi ótima para o descanso. Acabamos jantando no restaurante do próprio hotel. Restaurante ótimo, pedi um filé mignon que estava perfeito. Tente chegar cedo, pois eles trabalham com produtos frescos e itens limitados. Eu fui jantar perto do horário de fechar, e já não tinha mais pão e frios. O único porém que me chateou, foi o fato do ar condicionado do meu quarto não estava funcionando direito. Estava muito calor e o resfriamento foi lerdo, quase nulo. Indico e voltarei a este hotel numa próxima passagem.

Cute inn but..it needed some detailing. Professional staff, nice bed, food was great. A.C. Way too noisy, no hooks in the tiny W.C. To hang clothes on to change in to, just one luggage rack and no place for second traveler to put a suit case besides the floor, no full length mirror or any other besides what was above the sink. We were very thankful for the location over looking the parking lot otherwise privacy Would have been a big issue in just about any other room overlooking the bar/restaurant. The hotel is VERY dark in the common areas and I heard others commenting on it. Lastly and most importantly the hotel restaurant must need a GOOD scrubbing because the dirty kitchen smell/trash dumpster was permeating the entire upstairs of the hotel attracting ALOT of flies. It was just a gross smell and the flies didn't help the experience. Something really needs to be done about that.

Comfortable and great location!

We had a great three-day weekend, right in the heart of downtown SLO. I loved being able to park (free!) in back and walk everywhere. The deck about the bistro is fantastic for breakfast, drinks and dinner. I highly recommend this great little boutique hotel.
