This was a perfect spot for a weekend getaway from Monterey. Great location downtown SLO and the food in the Bistro is excellent! We will dine here again and may stay in the future. We had the only room with the king bed, and will come back if we can get that room again. We did feel the overall interiors...

First, the scale of this hotel is very much smaller than pics suggest. A lot. My husband and I spent a single night there and when we were shown to the room, my jaw literally dropped. The room was about 14' square with a shower in the corner and a basin along the wall. All for $325. I've only seen...

My husband and decided to try this boutique hotel out after reading about it on Pinterest and this web site. It is a charming little hidden gem! When we walked in the front desk gal (Nancy) greeted us with a glass of wine. She showed us around the hotel and to our room. The room was small but comfortable enough...

Great hotel. Deluxe room very comfortable, a little on the small side--no dresser, shallow closet, but would absolutely return. Friendly, helpful staff. Bikes are okay, but not for serious touting (heavy, 3 speeds). Great location. Restaurant is superb on a standalone basis (for dinner). Breakfast on outside second floor deck an unexpected pleasure. Didn't want to leave--tried to stay an...

Loved the cool interior and design of this hotel. Rooms (we had a 'deluxe' room) are small but the space is beautifully designed so that you have everything you need in a very hip setting. The bed was extraordinarily comfortable -pillows and linens were great too. The meals we had at the Bistro were probably the best we had anywhere...

Hotel was beautiful and the staff was delightful but we slept horribly. It was hands down the worst mattress I have ever slept on. I spent the whole night tossing and turning, trying to get comfortable. Felt like I was sleeping on a bed of bricks. Took about a week for my lower back and hips to finally get corrected....

We loved our stay here - it's a modern boutique hotel with a relaxed but elegant vibe. Perfect place to relax, with lots of cosy areas to have a glass of wine. The staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful, and the food was fantastic. The hotel is also in a great location - close to some busy streets with...

This is almost has the feel of a B&B but it has enough amenities that make it stand above that category. The rooms are petite and there are less than 20 of them in total. There is a nice restaurant and bar attached. Guests have access to an upstairs patio that is private and a great place to sit in...

This was an excellent choice while staying in SLO. It was in walking distance to a lot of restaurants/bars. The decor of the lobby/restaurant was very modern and elegant. The staff was very helpful and professional. The rooms were very comfortable with great amenities. Rooms with a private patio and fireplaces were excellent for cold nights/morning breakfasts.
