“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2012 via mobile

My girlfriend and I decided to stay here as part of our recent road trip from LA to San Fran. We were delighted with our decision as this gave us much more than we expected - best things about San Luis Creek Lodge are the HUGE bathrooms, excellent breakfast and comfortable beds. In fact we had the best nights sleep out of our entire trip! Also of note, if you take a 5 minute trip from the motel you will find Splash Cafe, which is excellent and brilliant value for money. Word of warning - there is not much to do in San Luis Obispo! Having said that, we knew it was going to be a very quiet town, but it was a needed stop over before the long haul to Monterey. Delighted we stayed here - you should do the same!

Stayed May 2012, travelled as a couple

This is the best value in San Luis Obispo. Nicely appointed clean rooms. Great breakfast is included.

Room Tip: We stayed at the Craftsman building. It was perfect for our needs.

This was a great place to stay while visiting Cal Poly. It is my second time staying here and it's close, comfy and love the free delicious breakfast. If my daughter goes to Cal Poly this is where I'll stay when we visit!

This is our second time staying here. It is very cute and charming. We like how you can walk into town from the hotel. There is also a trolly to take that picks you up right across the street if walking is not your thing. It is also nice to be able to rent a movie from the hotel. The bed and pillows are not amazing but comfortable enough. The next morning we had their breakfast which included some pastries, hot and cold cereal, bread for toasting, bananas and cuties, and you could order scrambled eggs with or without cheese. It did the trick. We like it here and we will probably stay here again.
