Garden Street Inn
Be careful if you're booked on the ground floor...
The Garden Street Inn is in a great location in downtown SLO, but thankfully on a quite street. The hotel has apparently undergone a recent management / ownership change. The staff was friendly and helpful This said, if you're booked in a "ground floor room" be careful!!! We were booked in such a room which was like being in a fishbowl. There was a public deck and bench seating outside all the windows of our corner room (bedroom and bathroom), so our only choice was to keep the shade closed at all times. The room has 12' ceilings with tall windows, so having blinds that worked from the "bottom up" would have helped somewhat, so you could have at least gotten light from above. Instead, we felt like we were in a closet, which was no fun at all.
