Breakfast buffet Too close to highway
I loved how friendly the staff were and the included accommodations. The room had lots of space and was clean and comfortable. I would definitely want to go back. Couldn't think of something to dislike.
I liked there was a bedroom and adjacent living room with a TV in both rooms. Location was good - right off 101. The breakfast was included, but very poor.
Staff was very friendly. Rooms were comfortable. Nice having something light to eat in the evening. Too close to freeway
We've stayed at the Oxford Suites half a dozen times over the last 5 years while my daughter attended Cal Poly SLO. The rooms are very comfortable and the suites were great for 4 of us. The hot breakfasts and the nightly wine reception is an added bonus. The staff is great and any problems are dealt with promptly. Great value for the money and I would definitley recommend to anyone. nothing
good hotel. ..nice room...good price!
Very friendly staff, loved the close walk to the beach as well as the pool and hot tub.
We liked the view of the beach from our room and the close proximity to the beach. This hotel is also very close to the pier and main shopping areas. The breakfast was pretty basic. I've stayed at lesser hotels that have a better breakfast than this hotel.
Although the property is older it was clean and the location was fantastic. The value was awesome.
Bed was comfortable, lots of television channels. Very close to the water- you can walk right down to the beach. Great proximity to restaurants and shopping. Front desk staff was friendly and recommended a good place to eat. Not the most luxurious, but good for a vacation on a budget
Room was reasonably clean. Walking distance to the beach. Bathroom needed a fresh coat of paint and better lighting. Neighbors were loud.
We really enjoyed our stay. I booked this last minute while we were on a road trip up the coast. I liked how it was so close to the beach and we even considered staying another night. We had to keep going, but this place and the Pismo Beach area was definitely one of the highlights of our entire trip.
Loved the close proximity to the beach! No complaints here! Wifi not working too well
There was no heat for our room..,freezing
The beach is at walking distance which is great. The wifi was not connecting and very slow when it would, loud neighbors, and the lights would sometimes not turn on.
It was a great location. No food available arriving after 830.
Access to walking to all areas downtown. Easy access in parking. Quiet.
Great service, location, beds and showers!
close to everything the breakfast
My friends and I stayed at the Avenue Inn after driving through Big Sur. We arrived after 10 pm and were greeted by Saul, who showed us to our room and gave some excellent dinner recommendations for late at night. The room was in great condition (newly renovated) and very comfortable for 4 adults to sleep in. Saul helped us in the morning by providing additional towels and helped with checkout as well. Overall we were very happy! Nothing - 100% would stay here again.
Smallish room, but it was quiet, clean and comfy.
Excellent facilities. Quiet.
The room was very quiet - nice for a light sleeper like me.
The grounds and the location are absolutely gorgeous. Their Oceanview garden is a wonderful place to read a book enjoy a coffee or take a short walk. The entire Oceanview building and much of the grounds are currently under construction and being refurbished. Our unit was totally out of date, smelled like cigarettes, the air mattress they gave us for our son to sleep on deflated in the middle of the night and it was just disappointing compared to the pictures we saw when we booked. The price was too much for what we got.
good location, nice view over looking the ocean no air conditioning, room was very hot at night time.
My daughter and had a great stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We loved the beds. Pillow could have been better. The hotel was very quire which made it easy to sleep. Check in and out was very smooth. Very friendly staff. The only down fall was the price. Our room was expensive with a ocean view, but there were many rooms with ocean frontage that were double the price. Beautiful facility, but I'm not sure if we'd stay again because of the price.
No air conditioning. How can you not have air conditioning. Also our phone in the room did not work and they could not fix it. What if there was an emergency. Not okay
Beautiful view Outdated decorating
The ocean view from our room was great. The rooms were comfortable and there was a restaurant right on the property that made it convenient. There was no continental breakfast included.
bait and switch on the room. forced to pay additional to getary something liveable, no beach access contrary to advertising and even directions sinage on the property. Charged 2x what the room was worth
Actually a nice place to stay for the price you pay. Internet. Kept going in and out. Had to be right by lobby to get a constant connection.
This is one of the worst hotels I've stayed in over many years. At max, I'd pay $59 a night as it is basically a roof over your head. We paid $189 due to it being Cal Poly move-in weekend but you can't charge that amount for the hotel it is. It hasn't been renovated for over 10 years I'm guessing by the look of the rooms.
It's located adjacent to a Denny's and iHop and other restaurants are a stones throw away. The bed was very hard and the floor carpet looked dingy.
wifi not working. 3 lights not working. dirty towels. shower drain blocked.
There was a mistake with our reservation and they were very unhelpful in trying to help. The person in front of us even had the same mistake with their reservation and they were unwilling to do anything to try to resolve the situation. On top of a horrible check in experience, we checked into our room and had a giant bug in the room. They were helpful in letting us change rooms after we told them about the bug.
This was the 3rd year in a row we stayed for the annual marathon. Deena let us check in early as the room was ready, and let us check out late when the marathon went longer then were expected. My wife really wanted to shower before we drove home. I'm truly grateful for the staff here as they are kind and understanding. It's an older hotel, but location and staff make up for that!
I was really impressed with everything. The Staff were helpful in every way.
The housekeeper was using our bathroom when we got into our room...so weird. Also, there was not fitted sheet on the bed. That seems really gross to me.
Found a used " Q-tip" on floor next to the bed. Other than that our stay was good
After I left my wallet behind, staff contacted me to let me know and then were very accommodating in making arrangements to have it sent to me.
My stay here was very comfortable. It was clean, the staff was hospitable & it was in a great location. The price was very reasonable also. I would definitely stay here again.
My room was clean and staff were friendly. The mattress in the room sagged in the middle, the wifi was very weak, and there were homeless people hanging out by the dumpsters.
The hotel was very accommodating when I called ahead and requested an early check-in since we had an early afternoon wedding to attend. It also seemed like the bathrooms had been recently updated. However, we were uncomfortable being located in such a cramped, behind the laundry facilities hotel room. There was a hole in the wall near the mini-fridge and we had to park way down the street near someone's home because there was no parking when we got back.
Great little place. Everything was clean. The hotel was right there when i needed it.
When looking for a simple place to rest while traveling, the San Luis inn does that well. While being a short walk to downtown it is also close to the highway without being loud. Breakfast was a little sparse but Jack in the box is across the street.
All very clean. The room was comfortable and the bed was super comfortable. I loved that the room had a fridge and microwave, most places don't. Everything was great.
Convenient location. Booked on Kayak the same night. A Sunday night booking so I think there were available rooms everywhere. For a Budget option it is a great place. Coffee, Juice and Rolls for the breakfast is a nice morning starter.. Parking is very tight. Outside seems run down but the rooms are kept nicely.
The room was clean and the bed was comfy. The restroom too was adequate. Everything was great for a one night stop through San Luis. The location was literally down the street from the freeway, a gas station, the downtown area and two mins away from the mission we were there to see. Sure the exterior is no Hilton resort, but the price is great. The pool is basically a trash or deconstructed pit, but if the owner is smart, he'll just have it filled and have the area made into more parking space. Because a pool is not necessary for the place.
The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The pool was empty and in disrepair.
Clean room Fridge Microwave Wood floors Shower and tub Pricing No pool(empty) Low budget breakfast(should just not have one) Fridge needed more cleaning Parking (big trucks in small spots) All night people in and out Curtains (need darker ones that fit windows)
great breakfast uncomfortable pillows
The staff was unfriendly. The pool is under construction and this wasn't disclosed before booking. The room had an overpowering smell of cleaner. The free breakfast was only cold cereal.
clean room, new quiet heater/air conditioner, great price It's very close to the highway so when there is traffic you hear it. Nothing fancy, but everything in the room worked, including the wifi.
Stayed the night. The room was large, clean and comfortable for our need. The Inn is not a vacation spot itself but it is cheap and a great place to stay if you have a car and you are passing in the area or would like to viait thia nice town. There isn't much one can expect for such a low cost but 'breakfast' was coffee and orange juice, two types of store cakes and two types of cereal. OK
Comfortable bed, room was really clean. Strong soap/disinfectant smell made breathing difficult. In room refrigerator rumbled pretty much the entire night. Between the two I didn't get much sleep.
The room was neat and clean as was the bathroom. The location was far enough from downtown so the traffic wasn't a problem. The staff was helpful. I wish I had known there two stories and I would have chosen a room on the ground level. The tv didn't work and had to be worked on by the staff three times. They were quick and efficient though.
The staff was very helpful, outside was clean, family friendly, and close to stores, etc. Pet friendly Rooms aren't the nicest, bed was uncomfortable. We ended up changing hotels. expected more from pics.
Exceptionally friendly staff and warm cookies at the front desk! They do the best that they can with an aging facility.
The price for what you get was awesome. Needed a place to stay while traveling from SF to LA. This place was clean, well maintained and the stuff was great. Breakfast was free but nothing special. Wish they had more options and fresher eggs and sausage.
Flat screen tv When booking, I read that this hotel had bathtubs, it did not.
Decor is a little dated but the room was spotless and the staff was super nice!
From check in to check out the stay was great. Exceptionally friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable beds, great location. It was perfect for what we needed.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was used dental floss in the bathroom and hair in the refrigerator.
The Sands Inn is just off the PCH exist, right next to the gas station. The staff was friendly and there were free cookies at the check-in counter. Our room was clean; the beds were comfortable and the bathroom pleasant. The free breakfast was tasty, especially the waffles. This place even included wifi, though the speeds were fairly slow. Overall, I found the place to be a positive experience, though ear plugs are recommended if you would like uninterrupted sleep. The walls are rather thin and car alarms went off during the night, interrupting our sleep. The wifi was so slow that I used my phone for internet access instead.
We were very pleased with the overall appearance and cleanliness of this hotel. It is very comfortable and attractive. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool area, and the deck, table, and chairs made it wonderful to hang out there. The website did not advertise a jacuzzi, so we were pleasantly surprised to find they had one...until we got in and realized it is barely heated. We were mildly disappointed because we like a hot jacuzzi, but it was heated more than the pool and was still comfortable with the jets. Two problems: The jacuzzi wasn't heated to jacuzzi-temperature. Also, the wi-fi would cut in and out on us, which was a small problem.
Hotel was located close to Cal Poly and not too far from downtown. Our room felt small for a family of 5 (two queens). Breakfast was good, coffee was great. Stuffy room and small. Parking is tight for an SUV. Back of hotel looked unkept.
Free beer at the bar during happy hour!!
The location, quiet convenience, and the food/ drinks gratis. N/A
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
The mgmt reception. The web site said the hotel was 'pet friendly' but management said it was not-
Rooms & breakfast no
Proximity to downtown & breakfast
Every room is a suite. Extremely clean and well cared for! The free beer/wine and BBQ are great. Super value for what they offer. SLO is one of the best places on earth. Great stay! No. Everything was great!
The fireplace was nice and cozy Doesn't work in the rain.Tv was very poor.Bathroom was tiny.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
True two room suites. Good breakfast in the morning included. Evening reception and barbeque as well. The soap.
Free drinks during 5-7pm every night They also served food reasonably priced right off the BBQ grill . The pool area was nice with heated lamps to keep you warm No
The room was big, the breakfast was substantial. But the construction was disturbing the peace and quiet of guests. My husband called and complained and they did not stop any construction until past 11:00 am. By that time, we were so fed up & left. They were renovating the hotel. The noise at 9:00 am was very, very, very AWFUL! It was bordering on the ridiculous. I would not have paid $-- for this freaking room.
Room was clean and staff were friendly. Don't expect a continental breakfast. Breakfast consisted of muffins and coffee/tea in the Motel reception with nowhere to sit. The Motel served our purpose as a base from which to travel, but do not expect to be near the beach.
Good proximity to restaurants, shops and beach a Little noisy as it is next to 101
The room was booked because it had a refrigerator & microwave & I presumed a coffee maker as all others we have been in had one. There were was no coffee maker & no cups of any sort in the room , even to drink water from, which is the only hotel in 3 weeks on the road to not even supply a plastic cup!
Rooms refurnished, clean nothing
under $100 and you can walk to the beach! right off 101, but room was quiet at night.
I'm not sure I enjoyed myself there, but after a few days on the road and hot shower was nice The walls were so extremely thin, we could hear the couple next door making love. There was no co air climate control. You could hear the highway at night.
The location. 3 blocks from the beach. The room was dirty, holes in the sheets, WiFi didn't work, week old pastries for breakfast. heat control in the room was unregulated.
Excellent beach location. Literally, this is it. Everything else was terrible from the actually facility to the staff. Staff did not have my reservation through booking.com. If they didn't have vacant rooms I would've been out of luck. I booked the reservation over a month in advance, and since it was somehow lost by the hotel we got a room "under construction", which meant no door knob/lock on the bathroom, no closet to hang clothes, no smoke detector, no table to set things on. The manager on duty didn't apologize for the construction and said she was informing is so we didn't complain later. This is a joke of a motel run by people concerned only with taking your money and not keeping your business. I will never go back again.
Lost my reservation .
Feet from the beach. No smoke alarm. It was ON THE BEACH. NO COMPLAINTS.
Office is only open from 8a-8p, every time i went in during business hours, no one was even there. Because of my late arrival/check-in, I found my room key taped to the office door. My room had no remote, there was no one there I could ask for one. It was a 2 night stay, the following day, I had the "please make up room" sign up, and room was never serviced. I wouldn't recommend.
Rooms were recently remodeled and it was nice and clean Refrigerater in the rooms
I liked the location, just off 101 and only minutes away from where I had to be. The room appearance was okay BUT (see what I didn't like) It wasn't clean (dust was under the bed, the sheets on one of the doubled beds had something on them (dirty) the towels in the bathroom weren't white more like off white, bathroom sink had something in it and required that I sanitize it and the shower. Also wiped down the counter in the bathroom due to if I could see dirt in the sink and shower I can assume the counter is not clean as well. Also had a funny odor in the room and fab breezed the bedding and sanitized the phone and anything my things would be touching. This location appears to allow long term staying and some of the people were questionable. No iron, Ironing board, coffee maker. Only had one Ice machine for the whole facility and it was all the way up front next to the office. They provided coffee only up front by the office in the morning and it was STRONG The one Ice machine they had on the outside was disgusting and needed cleaning and repairing.
Room was clean. Felt safe. No frills. Smelled heavy of air spray. Probably guests smoked. Might bother some folks. Was surprised they charged for WiFi.
Staff was very nice Hoodlums hanging out in parking lot smoking
The staff was nice, but overall the facility is not good. Everything. Too noicey and you can hear too much upstairs.
Reserved for 3: Needed to cancel, but refused; then would no;t refund the difference between the 3 requested atnd the one that stayed.
Couldn't hear neighbors and once inside, felt secure. The AC worked. PRO/CON: We got what we payed for. Non-smoking room sounded like weed, furniture looked like it was from IKEA and shower was TINY. Felt unsafe to go outside at night due to the other vacationers/overnighters staying there. WiFi wasn't free and minimal TV stations. PRO/CON: We got what we payed for.
Front desk staff was very friendly! I came down to ask for more towels and was granted my request with a sincere smile and friendly exchange. We stayed one night in a 2 double bed room and used the pool while we were there. No problems at all and everything was very clean. Enjoyed free coffee in the morning and the location was easily accessible. There was a charge for wifi and not too many channels on the tv, but we had no complaints.
- wooden floors - clean - quiet and sound proof room - extremely small shower - facilities are pretty basic - Small room - only soap provided as toiletry item - thin towels - For $144 + tax, you would expect a larger room with more facilities.
Location The smoke detector had a plastic bag over it. The exhaust fan in bathroom was in plugged and out of place. Other than that not bad
Nothing Got there at 8pm after a long drive. Checked in the room and found it had not been cleaned yet. Got frustrated that we had to wait for a while until they had to clean it. We were very tired after the long trip and really needed a shower and rest. I hope they cleaned the shower. Found out that they'd forgotten to put a second set of towels. Call and and asked for one. The one they gave us had someone else's hair in it!!!!
Being able to check in, jump in the pool, and relax. Towels weren't ready didn't know until after I was wet dripping thru the room. Had to go to front desk and pick them up.
Good size room. The bed is too soft. The pillow too small. The so-called "continental breakfast" is very symbolic and cheap. I would rather they don't offer that so we don't count on their breakfast.
location is convenient, breakfast was acceptable even it was small portions a 1/4 of a muffin, cereal, milk, oj, and coffee. room has a smell, poor maintenance, handicapped room when we are not in that need.
This is literally the cheapest hotel in the area, literally. There were at least 3 other hotels within spitting distance, but this one is the least expensive. It was fine for a quick stopover in SLO but I wouldn't recommend spending your vacation here. It's definitely a budget hotel but it was clean, warm and safe. As long as you have a decent buzz and a good sense of humor this place will do just fine. The bed was firm, the pillows were soft and the water was hot. Contrary to other reviews, the heater worked. The remote however, did not. We were placed in a handicapped equipped room, though neither of us have a disability. Overall it was ok but the shower was laughable at about 4 ft high and poor drainage. The bathroom was practically flooded by the time I finished splashing water on myself. But the water was hot.
It was within walking distant of downtown in a safe area with a gorgeous view of the mountains. For the price we paid I wasn't expecting much, but was very pleased to get a clean room, free wifi and breakfast in the morning! That's more than some nicer hotels I've stayed in. Highly recommend staying here if you're not looking for a luxury experience, just quiet, clean rooms.
Convenient for travelers, just out of highway The carpeted floor of the hotel is very dirty, rather disgusting. The room was fair.
A peaceful and quiet hotel with everything in order. Friendly and helpful staff.
Nothing Rooms were very old and felt dirty and dingy. The rooms stunk horribly. I'd expect a hotel like this to be $45/night at the most.
It was cheap and located close to the college and downtown San Luis Obispo. It needs some TLC, missing light bulbs, slightly torn curtain, bathtub tiling done very poorly.
Top shower probably borrowed from a strip mining company. Short walk into town where there are plenty of bars and resturaunts. Very mean breakfast (coffee and a cake). No double glazing, and right next to the freeway, so no need for a morning call. Cold with a very small and noisy heater.
lots of great food within walking distance. And about a 10 minute walk to Downtown SLO. N/A
We needed a cheap hotel to sleep at while visiting friends in San Luis and winetasting in Paso. For how cheap the hotel was, we were worried what the hotel would be like- but it was just fine. It had a good location- only a $5 cab ride from downtown bars and its right across the street from a Jack in the Box and Taco Bell, for late night snacks.
not much --it took 3 tries to get a key that worked. the room dan opened shampoo bottles in the shower, cigarette burns in the sink. see above.
The staff was amazing, and so was the room. Newly remodeled and styled nicely. I stayed in January, and the pool wasn't heated. This wasn't a big deal as most people don't swim in the winter anyways...and the beach is just a few blocks away. I'd definitely stay there again!
3 TVs, lots of space, very nice bedroom kitchen had no dishes, utensils, or cookware.no towel bars in bathroom, only slightly warm water for showers
View was nice, place was clean and decent, nothing over the top special-but ok. No pool, beach access locked.
it was clean very noisy from other rooms tv did not work it kept loseing signal shower drain did not drain no light where 2nd bed was only one chair
