We loved the hotel, close to freeway exits, rooms are big, we had a two queen sized beds, kitchen w/micro, especially loved the comfort of beds & pillows! (Feathered pillows) which for me is most comfortable. Bathroom spacious & our room had a nice recliner & patio! We were on 3rd floor, elevator a plus! Plenty of parking (small parking garage adjacent to hotel) Hotel offers continental breakfast as well, cereal, boil eggs, toast, bagels, tray of assorted sweet breads, fruit & coffee/juice,
Breakfast served in lobby which is small & narrow however hotel offers two areas for eating outside in patios,
Hotel has a pool, (we didn’t use it) but walked passed it & looked good,
Hotel a hidden Gem, clean & friendly staff

Huge room, covered parking, easy check-in, very short drive to university.


The scenery from our room was gorgeous and the bed was really comfy


Has everything we need, clean and comfortable. Next to a service station that is well stocked. Quiet and friendly area located just off 101. Very close to downtown area with lots of restaurants.


Staff was extremely nice. Beds and comforters very comfy. No Noise! No SMOKE! Love the fact there's a fee for smoking on premises. Such a quiet hotel. Close enough to Pismo and Avila off the freeway without the crazy prices. Does need some upgrades but other than that, great stay!
