Liked that it was walking distance to restaurants and the down town area. Parking was limited.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Cozy corner in San Luis

I stay at Los Padres every time I come through or to SLO. I love the comfort, and the cozy clean hominess I find here. It’s a nice walk to downtown and across the street from Splash Cafe that has the best chowder, scones and other baked loveliness. The owners are wonderful. If you want chain style, sterile luxury, go someplace else. My money is always on Los Padres.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Easy to locate the property and ease that each room has its own parking space right next to each room. Our room was not cleaned on the 2nd night and i had put out the please make room sign..got back and the do not disturb sign was there instead. Not sure if it was a ploy in not making the room up or not but the service was nice and would go back any time later.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Not again

Didn’t feel comfortable like I had no privacy u could see into the room from the outside with all the blinds closed.
