    Very good 8.0
    Perfectly adequate
    Decent value, very accessible to freeways and surrounding area/ 5 minute drive to downtown SLO Discounts at either IHOP or Dennys next door. Across the street from grocery stores/Starbucks etc. Lots of parking. Wifi was consistent. The hotel is decidedly average + could use some updates or amenities. No major problem her though

    Front desk, Danial was very nice and helpful when we needed help with the Wi-Fi and TV connection. The only thing was the carpet. It should be replaced or at least cleaned. Furniture was outdated, Nightstands, dresser, table and chair.

    It’s okay
    I love the fact that there is lots of stores and restaurants around and they are walking distance very convenient, they also offer a 20% discount at denny’s and IHOP if you show your room key. Rooms are nice pretty basic, pillows sucked lumpy and just not comfortable. Also they need new irons the one we had sucked it brunt my dress. Also they need a toilet down by the pool kind of sucks having to walk all the way back to your room soaking wet. Other then that it was good.
