Just be aware before you book ~
There were me with jackhammers working on the pool first thing in the morning... also we believe this hotel is used for re-homing folks coming back into society. No issues, just no forewarning.

Served its purpose but not great
Things were okay, just not great. Front desk clerk wasn't very friendly upon check-in, but we appreciated the friendliness of a different front desk clerk the following morning. The best things were the comfortable bed and nice shower. The worst was getting yellow water from the hot water pitcher in the breakfast room! (Had to throw that out.) It also would have been nice to have an extra bath towel set instead of the minimum one per person. (Extra hand towels are especially useful.) We could see that the hotel is old per the status of the room. Love the town though!

Excellent hotel for viait to Cal Poly
Stayed here for a midweek visit to Cal Poly. This hotel was a home run. Despite not being part of a fancy national chain, this place was great. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. The front desk staff went out of their way to ensure we felt welcomed. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
