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.

Room 16 was extremely small for the price with shower in the corner of the room. Was able to switch to room 17. Which was larger with a separate bathroom. Both rooms were clean and bed was comfortable. Location was great. Only has coffee in the morning. But you can purchase breakfast.

Great small personalized service, the only one complaint is the lack of parking.

Nobody home

Posted 02-Jul-2016 on Hotels
I arrived a little late in the evening and the town appeared shut down. There was no one at the hotel and I had to check a few times just to make sure I was at the right place. It seemed more like an apartment building without a lobby than a hotel so I had to Google map the place twice just to be certain. Sure enough I was in the right place but no one was there and the front door was locked. There was no way for me to get in. When I called the hotel all I got was an answering machine saying they were closed for the day and to call back the following morning. Very, very frustrating. Wound up having to stay elsewhere in town. Definitely not a place to say if you think you might be arriving a bit late.
