    Very good 8.0
    Great location for a night
    Very nice, clean motel, great for a one night stay. Apparently the pool was very cold according to others in our group! Although breakfast is supplied it is very basic, but you do have a fridge in the room.

    Good overnight stay
    Basic, affordable, clean hotel. It's at the start of San Luis Obispo, but it's a quick walk into town. Breakfast is very very basic.

    Good value for money
    Great for overnight stay breaking the journey from San Fransisco to LA. Easy enough to find. Friendly check in, plenty of free parking. Spacious room, comfortable bed, adequate shower with good quality towels. Kitchen area with microwave, coffee machine, fridge. breakfast in reception area, cereals, juice, English muffins to toast, with butter and jam, coffee. Plenty. Would stay again if in the area.

    Just what a Travelodge should be
    This is exactly how a Travelodge should be - all the essentials covered in a basic package that doesn't cost a bundle. The guy on reception was friendly and helpful, the rooms were up to scratch and the location was ideal - 5 minutes on foot to the excellent local brewery and another 10 into downtown.
