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.
