Very friendly service and clean room. Convenient location. had trouble with the room key working so had to wake the manager very early in the morning after taking my dog out to take care of business. Very responsive staff. think the charge for a single dog is high - $25/night.
Nice overall but I'm just a normal working stiff and it was not a luxury or romantic place just an average clean motel would stay again if price was 65-70 on weekend or 35-40 weekday. Hotdogs in cowtown, mustard and onions only, but with a smile pleeez . Love ya
Very good location, clean small room. Very good WiFi, off street parking, nice location. Office has irregular hours. Older but maintained. Small office style fan/heater only source, but adequate if not state of the art. I'd stay again, but not if my wife were with. Not a romantic destination, basic basic inexpensive lodging.
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.
close to everything the breakfast
Access to walking to all areas downtown. Easy access in parking. Quiet.
Great service, location, beds and showers!
Smallish room, but it was quiet, clean and comfy.
Stayed here with my wife and we had a great time. Location was great, it was 2 blocks from the all the shopping, restaurants, and bars. The staff was super friendly and the breakfast that was included was also good. They had bikes that we were able to use and road them throughout town. We had a great experience and will definitely be staying again
Perfect Location Beautiful room Comfortable Perfect size Wonderful Staff Fireplace Romantic Pillows Shower Head
I had a fun time there, it's close to the water and the owners were friendly. There was breakfast in the morning and checkout time was reasonable at 11am. No complaints here.
We had a great experience. The staff is excellent and so helpful. Our fireplace was broken, which they didn't know about until we got there. Jim (owner) tried to fix it but couldn't. He tried to get some out to fix it immediately, but couldn't. He felt terrible and gave us a generous gift certificate to a nice restaurant to compensate for it and made sure we had space heaters. He even personally called and got us a reservation and made sure the restaurant was aware and welcoming of our 2 year old daughter at a very nice restaurant where they don't even have a kids menu. Everyone was so kind to us. When we checked out, he apologized many times about the fireplace and it really wasn't a big deal to us. I would highly recommend this place. It was cute, comfortable, perfect size for our family, great location, and awesome staff.
Right off the get go the staff member who greeted us and employees were very friendly. The room was in the corner without a view but it filled the need and was extremely clean. I got the feeling that a lot of thought was put into customer care which is rare these days. I would definitely stay here again. If I had to really think about it, and this seems really picky, but the electrical could be updated in this room...This is by far not a deal breaker either as everything worked as it should.
The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful, genuinely interested in our comfort. Exceptionally clean as well. I'm not a motel kind of person, usually staying at Holiday Inn Express's etc...and so I was extremely worried about this being a flea bag motel. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the room. Although it was small, it felt comfy like a bedroom rather than a hotel room. Lace on the windows and furniture, nice t.v., small walk-in closet, new tile and fixtures in the small bathroom. Nice wooded vaulted ceiling. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. And just a block away from Embarcadero St (where all the shops, resteraunts, water, and boats are). So the window looks out on the parking area, oh well. I do not regret staying there one bit. Oh and did I mention it was cleeeeeeean!!
While this isn't a "5 star hotel", it is better than what you would expect for the price and general rating. It's small and privately owned by a single family, so they are much more interested in making sure the stay is phenomenal, compared, say, to a large corporate chain. There's no pool or hot tub, but the beach is very close. There's no room service, but it's within walking distance to lots of restaurants and cafés. And, just like everyone else has said, don't miss the "Magic Fingers"! I'm definitely staying here again! Just like with all hotels, the bed wasn't mine, so it wasn't the most comfortable. However, I've stayed in "nicer" places and I slept better at Sundown Inn.
OMG, these owners are the nicest people! Plus, they don't tell you but the beds still have "magic fingers" on them! Walking distance to everything in town, overall fantastic. Walking distance to restaurants.
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
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 breakfast uncomfortable pillows
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.
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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
Great little place. Everything was clean. The hotel was right there when i needed it.
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 staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The pool was empty and in disrepair.
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.
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.
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.
Easily accessible from the freeway, clean sheets, and towels. It was the small details that could be better. The bathroom needs some repairs done. Shower was not working properly and water kept dripping from the bathtub faucet.
Found a used " Q-tip" on floor next to the bed. Other than that our stay was good
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.
I was really impressed with everything. The Staff were helpful in every way.
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.
wifi not working. 3 lights not working. dirty towels. shower drain blocked.
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.
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.
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 room set up was a little strange as the bathroom sink was in the bedroom, so if you were brushing your teeth, whomever was in bed would be staring right at you. but, the room was clean and spacious. The staff was welcoming and eager to serve.
This place it awesome! The location is great, the staff is fantastic and it offers so many extras like made to order breakfast, afternoon BBQ, free movie rentals, free happy hour, the list goes on and on! Stay here, you wont be disappointed!
The breakfast was great.
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.
The fireplace was nice and cozy Doesn't work in the rain.Tv was very poor.Bathroom was tiny.
Living room and bedroom each with a tv which helps when you have kids. Breakfast is made hot to order. Loved the hotel. Parking was a tad tight.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Quiet, friendly staff, nice room cooked to order, as long as it is on the menu...
From the moment we arrived we knew that we had booked the best hotel for the price in town. We drove by 9 other SLO hotels and Quality Suites was quality.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
The size and layout of the room was perfect. Having coffee available at any time was wonderful. The free breakfast and the cantina were great ways to start and end a day! No!
The resort-like amenities
The rooms were very spacious and there was plenty of room for the kids to roam around and they had a microwave and a refrigerator which made traveling with a baby much easier than the previous 2 nights. The room was very clean and even had a cute little fireplace. We will definitely stay again on our next trip. The man at the front was very rude and didn't pick up the phone or come to the desk to answer questions. He also charged an extra $20 for the night because we had a baby. Who slept in a travel bed I might add. When I showed him our reservation he said it wasn't right and that he had to charge the extra money for the baby.
Great location. Reasonable price. Decent facilities. Rude staff. We were staying in Morro Bay for a wedding and my sister stopped by our room in the morning. The manager accused us of having more people staying with us. We were offended. The continental breakfast was room temperature Tang and costco muffins cut into four servings. You can borrow an iron from the front desk but expect eye-rolling.
The room is very clean, the location is close to beach. Good value for the money. The included breakfast is not good. Just quartered muffin, pastry, coffee. We be a better value if they improve the breakfast.
They didn't change the bedsheets or clean the room (vacuum, dust, clean counters, mop floor, etc) when we requested maid service. They did give us clean towels. The wallboards were sticky with black fingerprints, the carpet was dirty and the walls had dust on them. The heater was SO loud and the tempature wasn't accurate so we were cold each night. The tv sat on the microwave and they had an old refrigerator and the handle was dirty. This will be the last time we stay at Fireside Inn.
We stayed in July and were very pleased that the staff accommodated our request for a room with a view of the harbor. We enjoyed the fresh breeze through the open windows (even left them open at night). The electric fireplace heaters were a nice touch and worked well to take the chill off the evening air. We loved that we could walk just two blocks to the harbor and enjoy meandering down the street, popping into shops or restaurants. We even saw a sea lion sunning himself on the rocks. The continental breakfast is very minimal at the Inn, but there is a great Sun & Buns Bakery on Embarcadero with delicious pastries, breakfast burritos, and coffee drinks close by!
Clean, comfortable, and close to everything.
location is great, room was clean, bed - comfy
Awesome Location, just a short walk to the shops and restaurant. Old Bathroom, door didn't close. Heat A/C wasn't working.
Very clean and comfortable room and very friendly staff!
We liked that we were walking distance to Morro Bay and very close to all the shops and restaurants on the Embarkdaro. The heater worked great! It exceeded our expectations for a 54.00 hotel. It was clean and nice. It was quiet and the staff was quiet. Nothing - it was a reasonable hotel for a very cheap price.
The size of the room, the fake fireplace, and the efficiency of the heater. I couldn't not understand what the man behind the counter was saying. All he would do is mumble and never complete a sentence. Very frustrating.
because it was by the morro bay rock yes the room smelled.
I have stayed here before a couple of times. The beds are always comfortable and the rooms clean. These are the two most important things to me. This is not fancy or elegant but suits the need of a clean comfortable room. There is no hair dryer and you'd better bring your own shampoo and soap as what they give you is a small sample. The fireplace is a nice touch and they provide the log. It does a good job warming up the room and is nice to doze off to while watching a little tv with the lights out. Spa is nice.
It was during the week so it was quite. The were putting in new windows and I didn't like the fact that while we were gone the room was opened so the men could work. It's a good thing we didn't have anything worth taking.
the location of the hotel near beach and shops is great there is no airco. During our stay it was nog warm zo no problem
It was a couple of blocks up from the Embarcadero, but there was a pretty good view of Morro Rock from our rooms. The facilities are a bit older. Bathrooms small and sink did not drain well.
Hotel rooms appear to have been renovated and the room was very cute and comfortable. The small kitchen was a big bonus. Loved that there was a back door into the kitchen as well. Room was a bit warm and stuffy, as there was no a/c there. However, no a/c is pretty common in the area and the outside temps were unusually warm so I doubt this is normally an issue. A ceiling fan or portable one would have helped, but we did not ask.
Pictures online made rooms look great. Reality was run down room with a new coat of paint. Dirty dirty dirty. Smeared fecal matter on bathroom door. Continental breakfast was stale cereal and bread for toast. Awful place and will never stay again.
The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was a little firm for my liking but not too bad. It appeared the room above ours (we were in 101) is the owner/manager residence. Could here every footstep all night long. Sounded like kids playing and running through the house. Multiple loud bumps through the night which awakened us.
Good hotel in walking range to restaurants and sightseeing. Breakfast room is REALLY small, had to take it to the room.
The rooms were clean. Staff was friendly. Hot shower with great water pressure. Great location. Floors were laminate and cold. Needed more blankets. Towels were awful. P.E. kind of awful.
The staff was nice, but overall the facility is not good. Everything. Too noicey and you can hear too much upstairs.
Staff was very nice Hoodlums hanging out in parking lot smoking
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.
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.
Rooms were recently remodeled and it was nice and clean Refrigerater in the rooms
Reserved for 3: Needed to cancel, but refused; then would no;t refund the difference between the 3 requested atnd the one that stayed.
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.
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.
lots of great food within walking distance. And about a 10 minute walk to Downtown SLO. N/A
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Convenient for travelers, just out of highway The carpeted floor of the hotel is very dirty, rather disgusting. The room was fair.
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.
A peaceful and quiet hotel with everything in order. Friendly and helpful staff.
