Poor 2.0
Worst hotel EVER!
This hotel experience was horrible. I've stayed at many high-end and bargain hotels but this was the worst. The A/C didn't work, the sink didn't drain, the shower curtain rod was pulled out of the wall, the telephone had pizza sauce on it, the lamp shade was broken and resting on the hot light bulb, the counters were dirty and lastly the smoke detector was taken off the wall and was found in a drawer. Do not stay at this hotel!

Lamplighter Review
Clerk at desk was pre-occupied during the check in process. Room was average at best. Room was directly next to the hotel pool, so noise was a factor whenever we were in the room.

Fair 4.0
Not great
The hotel is in a good location, but can use some updating. The rooms were poorly laid out, the sofa was very old/used, the TVs had limited channels and the breakfast was more than disappointing. There wasn't enough food the first day and not enough room to fit the people the 2nd day we were there. Besides that, it was ok.

No bueno....
This place flat out sucks. Way better options for the money. It’s old... dilapidated... dirty... and horrible service. The Sunday breakfast had almost no food, and what they did have was just inedible. Quite simply... stay away.

Very good 8.0
Enjoyable stay
The beds were comfortable. Rooms are clean. Front desk girl was so nice and helpful. Breakfast was good. I would be happy to come back here again. Great location close to Cal Polly and the downtown area.
