Front desk staff was very nice. The breakfast bar was kept well stocked and clean.

Bathroom shower is VERY small. My husband is 6'3" and he barely fit. Our door was jammed. You had to push it with all your body weight to open it. As we were only staying 1 night, it wasn't fixed as I did not report it until morning of our departure.

NOTHING

This was a terrible experience. As soon as I walked in to sign in, I was met by a very rude man and it just got worst from this point. I was verbally abused by him and threathened by him which I did not appreciate it.

I ABSOLUTELY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL. I ended staying at another hotel because this man would not give me my keys without paying another $50 a night and he was abusive. I have submitted a dispute for this hotel charge. ... more

Uniqueness.

Room was so dark that even with the lampshades off there wasn't enough light to read. The doors and walls are so thin that we were kept up all night by slamming doors and talking outside of our room. The window shades do not block bright exterior lights

This is not a good hotel if you want a good nights sleep or a room with enough light to read with. ... more

Clean, relatively quiet room, friendly staff.

The hotel was not 'in' the downtown area of SLO, as Priceline made it seem.

It was fine for what it was; a quick one night stay as we were passing through town. We would not consider this a destination-type of hotel for a longer stay. ... more

Location was easy to get to and was located conveniently near shops and restaurants.

Customer service did not meet expecations. Staff were courteous, but not proactive in resolving an issue.

Upon arrival, there was no soap provided in the room. We asked the front desk and housekeeping was going to be called. Ultimately, the soap did not arrive that night or the morning after. We called the front desk in the morning as well and we were told that housekeeping was already on their rounds. We ended up taking a shower using our shampoo. ... more

From the outside it didn't look very appealing. Once inside the room it was not bad. But it had a low star rating so I wasn't expecting too much. Good for a cheap, convenient place to stay for a night when on a long drive.

People loud late at night. Even though it's not the hotel's fault, they could have st least asked them to keep it down. It made it hard to sleep and made it uncomfortable with them being just outside my room.

the staff was very nice and new the area. The rooms very clean. The beds were fairly comfortable.

The parking space a bit tight. Not close enough to beach. The towels were rough and like sand paper on my soft skin. It would have been nice to have soft fluffy bath towels and robes to wear.

Just wished it was closer to the beach. And parking space, with fluffy soft towels. ... more

The best thing about this hotel was the location. Right off the 101. 15 mins from Pismo Beach and Morro Bay. The price was reasonable for the star level. I would recommend this hotel just because of the friendly staff.

The carpets were stained, the sheets and bedding were dingy. Overall this hotel was clean and comfortable. Just don't expect 4 star quality. Pool is NOT heated, but well taken care of.

Good location, overall clean room, super friendly staff was very accommodating. Pet friendly (with deposit). Free pastries, muffins, fruit, coffee and juice were a nice touch. ... more

The hot tub exceeded my expectation, I thought it would be smaller but it was big enough to fit at least 4 people and I can smell the sulfur (a lot), supposedly the water is better than the ones outside... And there were wild turkeys :)

The room could use some updating, horrible TV signals, and the worst part was that the walls were paper thin, I could hear everything my neighbors were doing and it disturbed my sleep greatly (I was in the Harmony building).

Overall the resort exceeded my expectation (which were pretty low due to many bad reviews), however the price was pretty high, it probably would have been better if I had the groupon deal or any deal, definitely better to go on weekdays ... more

The hotel had a bike path that led right to do the beach.

The bathroom set-up was inconvenient, lacking adequate storage and no counter space. The bathroom floors and shower looked like it needed a good scrubbing and disinfecting. The staff was apathetic and unprofessional, service was at the level of a motel.

The location and public hot tubs were great. We were able to bike right from the hotel to the beach in a reasonable time and the path was easy and pleasant. Though I can't be sure about the cleanliness of the public hot tubs, since it was hard to see at night, the set-up of the Oasis (the largest hot tub) was fun and we had a good time. But the horrible hotel staff and unclean bathrooms in our unit ruined my relaxing holiday. I stay in a lot of hotels for work, and definitively say that the service is sub-par for the amount of money you pay to stay at the hotel. First, if you thought the amenities at the resort were inclusive from looking at ... ... more

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
