Good 7.4 From 246 reviews

Very good 8.0
One night stay
The owner was extremely friendly and welcoming. He allowed us a late check out which was a huge plus for us and provided coffee and danish in the morning. The outside of the motel was clean and appealing and came with free parking. Motel was close enough to the downtown area for us to walk, which seemed pretty safe. The inside of the room seemed to be updated but the mattress isn’t the most comfortable(but also not the worst) and the bathroom could’ve used an extreme detailed cleaning (bathroom is also very small but it is what it is).Overall great hotel for the price.

Great room and price
I had an overnight in San Luis Obispo - just needed a place to sleep. This motel is great. Very neat and clean. Small functional room that felt brand new as a remodel of an older building. The price is the best and my stay was much better than I would have expected. I'll use it again.

Our stay at the Sunbeam was good. Nothing special but It was comfortable and clean. The gentlemen in the office was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again.
