Good hotel small gym
James, gb1 night trip
The Kinney San Luis Obispo
A great hotel to stay whilst visiting SLO
Needed a place to stay for a 2 night stay and SLO. This hotel was a great find just on the outskirts of the town centre. It's a relaxing 15 minute walk into the town centre. We found twin queen bedded room a little on compact side but we were only there for 2 nights so wasn't too much of a problem. Hotel appears to have been recently re-furbished with modern room decor. Continental style breakfast was OK. Plenty of hot water and good wi-fi. Staff all very friendly and helpful. SLO is a great place to visit and would highly recommend a trip to Firestone Grill so amzing tri-tip sandwich and a good selection of beers.
