I was In San Luis Obispo for a wedding and spent two nights in this hotel. I think it cost a great deal more than it should have to stay in a room that desperately needs updating and new sheets and blanket. It was very clean and the staff is wonderful But I had trouble sleeping in the room with the closet made out of plywood and no door, old old bed, threadbare linens, etc. I think I just had the worst room in the Place, right next to the laundry room and I like to think that they didn’t put me there because I’m a single woman that because it was the last room they had available. I will not go back there again.
