    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.
    Elena, gb1 night romance trip
    Poor 2.0
    I stayed in room 115, I woke up at about 1am with bed bug bites and to find a bed bug on my pillow. I was so upset. The owner tried to dismiss it, he is very aware that his building is infested and chooses to risk it to see wether or not his guests will be bitten or not. Will never be staying here again.

    It was fine. Clean rooms and linens. Basic amenities. Shower stall/tub could use some repair/renovation. It's an old property that could use some thorough upgrade. Just had a tired feel to it Nice staff member at the front desk.
