San Luis Obispo Hotel Guide

Some people like to vacation in the mountains. Other people like to vacation on the beach. This can make for some difficult decision making between couples. However, what if there was a location that offered both mountains and a beach? Would that be ideal? Fortunately, a place like this exists, and it’s called San Luis Obispo, California.

Many San Luis Obispo hotels have similar features. Hotels in San Luis Obispo are known for having rooms that offer mountain views. In some cases, the hotel will be located on a beautiful meadow as well. You won’t find any hotels directly on the beach, but if you’re wise enough to look into car rentals, then you can drive to the beach with ease.

Getting back to hotels in San Luis Obispo, CA, features are likely to include free WiFi, a fitness center, a complimentary breakfast, and a pool. Almost every room will come with a coffee/tea maker and miniature refrigerator. It’s also possible to have a balcony, which will allow you an opportunity to really take in the beautiful landscape. If finding a hotel with a balcony is important to you and you can’t find one in town, then simply look at resorts or hotels near San Luis Obispo.
