Loved it was walking distance to everything.

Very nice and centrally located. Our room was very small though. Would stay there again but opt for a larger room.

very nice downtown renovated old building

Posted 14-Apr-2017
Pros: the location, the style/design
Cons: Our room could have used some additional hooks for hanging coats, hats, robes and it could have used a comfortable couch or chair.
Location: The hotel is right in the downtown, so within walking distance of all manner of restaurants, shops, theaters and the history Mission.
The hotel was very nice and the location was great - within walking distance to all the downtown area. I would have given the place 5 stars, except for the fact that our room did not have a comfortable chair or couch to sit on. otherwise, we loved the place and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in San Luis Obispo.

Nice hotel in downtown SLO

Posted 05-Apr-2017
Pros: Friendly and helpful employees.
In the middle of downtown, the rooms are small but clean and great character. Relaxing simple breakfast on the second floor. The staff was very friendly and eager to make your stay wonderful.

Very cool venue in the heart of SLO.

Posted 30-Mar-2017
Pros: A nice glass of wine at check-in, chocolate truffles at bedtime, exceptionally pleasant staff.
Loved the artwork, antiques, and books throughout the hotel. The restaurant and bar were excellent. Easy walking distance from a huge variety of shops, restaurants and bars. A beautiful place overall,

comfy, quiet, great downtown location

Posted 30-Mar-2017
Pros: location atmosphere amenities
Cons: More living space and more storage space would be preferable
Location: shops, restaurants, bars, Farmer's Market, movies, hikes, short ride to beaches
I was visiting my son, a CalPoly student, who lives near campus and also meeting a friend there for a couple days. The location is great- easy in and out on foot or with a vehicle (actually more practical to not have a car) . Glad the parking, which is limited and a tight fit, was not an additional charge. I appreciate the free internet service and the morning coffee available in the communal room. The rooms are beautifully appointed, tho they are very small. There is insufficient room for clothing to be hung in closet or stored. I felt the temperature regulation was efficient and responsive to my needs. The light in my room was quite dim and one light was missing a bulb. That is a nice romantic touch, but I needed to read and use my laptop. And I was there with a friend, not an intimate. A handyman came at my request and made the lighting better. overall b[very nice accommodations. More space in the room would be preferable.

Very nice stay, need a couple of hangers for delicate tops to hang. Had the most wonderful dinner at your Bistro, my husband had the Duck Confe over Polenta, and I had the Roasted Chicken w/ Roasted Fennel and mashed potatoes! It was Awesome just Awesome and I am a chef also! Will highly recommend.

Quaint, but not a great stay.

Posted 24-Dec-2016
Pros: The location.
Cons: Better lighting. A comfortalbe chair & desk in the room.
My stay was to be a one night get away all by myself to relax and shop during the holiday season. Since I was by myself I chose this hotel so I could shop at the farmers market and the local stores & easily walk back to my hotel room. I was thrilled to have a fireplace in the room , especailly since the weather was cold & rainy. The farmers market was cancelled becasue of rain & I headed back to just enjoy the fireplace & a night of tv & reading. After only a few minutes of enjoying the room the lights went out (local power outage - no fault of the hotel). and that was the end of my great getway to relax. So, yes i was disappointed after splurging on this hotel. But, it was not the hotel's fault. I think i would have appreciated a little compensation or at least some sort of apolgy that this happened. Also, I needed internet access the next morning & it was very limited becasue of the power outage, so that was a big inconvience, but again not their fault. In the room, i found the lack of a desk, a comfortable chair, and good lighting to be something i really missed & would have liked to have had to make the stay a little more comfortable. Overall the hotel is very quaint and has a great location, but it was not an enjoyable stay for me.

Biggest disappointment ever!

Posted 16-Dec-2016 on Hotels
For the price, (2 to 3 times more expensive than much roomier hotels) it was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. The room was very small with no drawers or hanging facilities. A glass shower and sink were in the same room as the bed ( 1/3 of the little room was shower and sink) the toilet was in a claustrophobic tiny room. No safe,small TV, the queen bed was comfortable, only saving grace.
