For the price they should offer a continental breakfast or at least an espresso

Downtown Location Great

Posted 23-Aug-2017
Pros: Great location....love the exposed brick, nice balcony to the street.
Cons: Decor and furnishings and lighting in the rooms.
Great location, staff is terrific. Rooms are not done correctly. Some rooms have the shower visiable from the bed, no door. The rooms are dark because the lighting is dim. No dressers for storing clothes.

Nearly perfect but a few annoying misses

Posted 01-Aug-2017
I wanted badly to give Hotel Granada 5 stars but small misses prevented that. We didn't have a good check in experience as we arrived after hours at 11:20pm. We weren't given instructions anywhere about who to contact, so we had to find the bartender in the bistro to help out. Thankfully, he was really friendly and quickly got us in after a little confusion. Then, even though we expressed concern that the parking looked full, he insisted that it was ok. After putting the bags in the room and moving the car, parking was indeed full and we were left to roam around the city to find overnight parking. The next morning, I provided feedback about this and the front desk said that we should've received instructions about this (we didn't). Then the next night, we found a dried up blood stain on our cover sheet. Lastly, I mentioned in the Expedia reservation that it was my wife's 30th and was hoping for something special. While we did receive the welcoming glasses of rose wine and customary chocolates, I was hoping for something above and beyond. All that said, our room (#6) was quiet and comfortable and the hotel was the best location. The breakfast was excellent and the morning coffee and tea was a great touch. Hanging out on the patio was also really cozy in the morning and night. It's a really chic hotel with a boutique feel that I don't think you can get in many more places.

Wonderful location for exploring downtown

Posted 23-Jul-2017
Pros: The best part of staying at the Granada was it's location. You can't beat having a central location with parking that you can explore downtown SLO.
Cons: The hotel cannot make their guest rooms any bigger, and so the only thing I could suggest would be to work on their aggressive air conditioning system
Location: The location is excellent for exploring downtown SLO. Highly recommend Novo Restaurant on the creekside patio. SLO offers great shopping & eating!
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.

Lovely Boutique hotel

Posted 14-Jun-2017 on Hotels
This hotel was a very nice boutique hotel. My daughter and I had a college tour and I decided to stay here since it was 1 mile away from Calpoly. Location is perfect. Close to stores, restaurants and the Mission of San Luis Obispo. Our room was a good size for 2 people and it had a cute shared balcony. Furniture had an antique style, just didn't like the cabinet that was made of iron, it made a lot of noise. The room smelled so fresh and they had organic lotion, soap, shampoo, conditioner and toothpaste. I was welcomed with a complimentary glass of Rose and they placed yummy chocolate during turndown. Staff were very nice, helpful and warm. Parking is free but I have to warn you to bring a compact car since the parking area is quite small We had breakfast here. Menu and price is very reasonable. I highly recommend this place and will be back.

Awesome hotel (minus early AM construction)!

Posted 22-May-2017 on Hotels
Awesome hotel apart from the early morning construction! We really enjoyed this boutique hotel with the exception of the morning being INCREDIBLY noisy. We stayed for my girlfriend's birthday and they even offered a bottle of champagne which was nice. The rooftop patio dedicated to hotel guests with a firepit was fantastic. The location is great too. Unfortunately, we left with a bad taste in our mouth as we were awoken bright and early by very loud drilling. When I called the front desk, they said "Oh they should be wrapping up shortly". The construction went on all day. No one followed up which was very disappointing.
