Fun place to stay
Only drawback was the bar service.She was incredibly short and rude with each interaction.It seemed like the bar and food service is an afterthought and poorly staffed.What a shame.Fun game area concept.

Perfect place to stay
From check in to checking out, everything was perfect. Loved the room decor. We will definitely use it again on our next trip to San Luis Obispo.

Every was wonderful. It has been beautifully remodeled, very hip, loved the room decor and the bar and lobby. The beds were very firm - not super comfy.

Very cute comfy spot
I would definitely stay at this hotel again, especially if they take my advice about putting a coffee cart in the lobby so that guests can get a cup of coffee more quickly and easily. The bar/restaurant was understaffed and I had to wait up to 10 minutes to buy a cup of coffee to go because everybody there was busy serving food, which was excellent, by the way.
