    location-quiet even though next to the freeway no hoghway noice-nice size room decebt parking very clean

    overpricded=hoildau weekend

  • Older travelers

    The proximity of the motel to the places we were visiting.

    the carpet was not as clean as I would have liked it to be. There was also a significant noise incident with drunk men pounding on doors, yelling, and generally acting obnoxious between 1 AM and 3:30 AM within the motel complex. If there was security at the site, this incident could have been cut much shorter.

    Nothing!!!!

    Toast and molded coffee are not considered a Continetal Breakfast.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Room was clean, bed was comfortable, and mattress was completely enclosed in a dust / mite protector.

    An extra $25 added to my bill in Taxes.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    The beds were comfortable.

    I felt for the money charged the continental breakfast should have had more variety of selections. I also was expecting a pool and hot tub or jacuzzi.

    Price, clean, parking.

    Poor internet wifi in my room which was far from lobby.

  • Older travelers

    No service - very poor breakfast - expensive

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The location was great for us, as we were able to walk to Thursday's Farmer's Market. It is also close to the freeway and numerous places to eat.

    I would just add juice to the breakfast menu, as I'm not a coffee drinker. Thanks

    Staff at front desk rude unkept and not Informative. Disguesting! Noisy and plastic on bed One table and not very much on food Terrible!!

    Never stay again

  • Family with children

    I was very disappointed in my stay. When checking in, I realized that I had not asked for two double beds, but immediately notified the clerk. As a result, my son had to stay with friends during our time in San Luis Obispo. It would have been nice if the motel would have tried to make some type of accommodation, either by offering a room with two beds or a reduction in price. Furthermore, they should not offer free wi-fi that is not secure. The wi-fi was very unreliable when I could use it, which was very infrequently. There were stains on the bed spread and on the chairs in the room. This is not a place I would recommend to anyone going to San Luis Obispo.

  • Family with children
    2.8

    My family did not like or enjoy the stay at the best value, the on line information and pictures tell a different story, I will not be stay there or recommending the area.

    Nothing it was dirty the carpet was not vaccum and the the carpet was old full of stains, the beds were sunk-in and very uncomfortable

  • Single
    5.8

    It was an inexpensive place to stay and near to the activities I was engaged in.

    Toilet ran all the time. Chairs were stained. No cover over fluorescent light fixture. No was cloth provided the second night. Breakfast was very basic. Noisy location next to freeway on-ramp.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Our only compliant was that in the morning the shower never did get much more than warm. I gave the owner some ideas on what to look at for correction. Hope it gets addressed.

  • Single
    7.8

    I was located at the back(west)side and it was very quiet yet you just turned out the drive and were on the 101. Not much staff around in the morning but food was out. Had washer and dryer for use with coins. Not fancy but clean quiet and for a good price while visiting family there.

  • Single
    8.8

    I only stayed one night -- got there very late and left early the next morning. All was ok but I don't remember any details.

    Nothing comes to mind. A.B.V. locations are consistently good and have a right to claim "Best Value".
