Wonderful location for exploring downtown
The Granada Hotel is perfectly located, with easy walking distance throughout downtown. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and they made our stay a pleasant one. Our room was on the second floor, which was nice, and the hotel has a very quaint, but older vibe. The room was decorated with a mix of modern fixtures and antique furnishings. The space was much smaller than I had expected, and there wasn't any place for hanging our clothes; consequently we lived out of our suitcases for two nights. The air conditioning was hard to control, and I was freezing most of the evenings. Even with the fan on low for air circulation, it would kick in and blast cold air onto the bed.
There is parking for about ten cars in the back of the hotel, which in the area we were, was a plus. Parking on the surrounding streets is limited and metered. The access to the parking lot is through a very narrow alley, and I'm not sure how a full size SUV would manage. I did notice that the lot filled up every evening, and so I'm not sure where a guest would park if they did not get one of the coveted spots. We made sure to be back at the hotel by late afternoon so that we could have parking. We dined at the Bistro restaurant, and had a delicious meal served on the patio. The service was good, & the food was fresh. There was some construction going on while we were there, as they're adding another restaurant and a bar. All things considered, we had a very nice visit to SLO with the Granada Hotel.
