We stayed here travelling down the west coast and found it perfect for a stop over. Unfortunately the pool was being rebuilt, but the rooms were spacious and clean and comfy. It was a 20 minute walk into town which was OK although it involved main roads, but the centre was nice with good shopping and bars and restaurants. Room... More

After a long day of driving, I was looking for a reasonably priced, comfortable and clean stop over and this is exactly what I found here. The room was a bargain which is probably why my experience was such as positive one, but I found the free parking and great WIFI an added bonus also. The staff were very friendly,... More

The staff were kind. The room was neat. The blanket stained. The pool is non-functioning a jack hammered hole with construction fencing and gravel sand bags. It sparred to be over 3 months this way and close to 6 more to replace. The walls were over sprayed with paint on the handicap hand rail and fixtures. No complementary water in... More

We stayed with 4 people in a double queen beds room. The first issue we had was when we were about 30 minutes away from the location (at 3 30pm) we received a phone call from staff asking where we were and requesting we provide them with our information(not sure why). Since we driving i told them I couldn't provide... More

This place looks like it would be rejected as a 'mood' scene set for Breaking Bad. Picture a classic 70's motel. Now empty the pool and fill it with construction detritus including old washer and dryer. Because of the wildfire around the area, there were no accommodations anywhere else. Grateful we found this place, though for $300 a night, definitely... More

The San Luis Inn is well located and close to the city center. The room was clean and comfortable. People from reception was very kind. Thus, the place is a good option to sleep after enjoy the city... with a good cost benefit.

i did spend 2 days in this hotel. Beds were comfy, room had microwave and refrigerator which is so handy in a hot day. Breakfast is in the lobby, some muffins, cereal and orange juice and of- course coffee and tea. No eggs or yogurt. The best part is the coffee. Close to down town and very close to 101.... More

We needed an overnight stop on the way from San Francisco to LA, and this was ideal. One of our party wanted to stay in a classic US motel - like you see in the movies. This fitted the bill. And in fact it was a great choice. Comfortable beds, fairly quiet, great breakfast. As it happens the pool was... More

I booked this room at the last minute for an impromptu road trip and felt fortunate to get it at a decent rate ($169.00). Since it was a holiday weekend, every other place I saw online was either booked up or the rooms were considerably more expensive. The room was a decent size, dated but clean, and since the only...

When we first arrived I'll have to admit, I wasn't sure of the location or how the room was going to be. It turned out to be one of the best budget hotels I've been to in while.
