The interior design of the room is so cool. They paid attention to everything, shower tile, bathroom sconces, light switches, finishes, etc. All very modern and sleek. Plus the bed and pillows are SO comfortable, the same as the shower. They also use Aesop shampoo and soap in the bathroom which smell incredible. FWIW, my wife just says that you are missing a full length mirror outside the bathroom so she can do her make-up. The coffee and pastries outside the door in the morning also make the perfect start to the day.

My wife and I have stayed at a lot of hotels along Monterey Street in SLO and this accommodation is among the very best. The rooms are very stylish, clean and contemporary but while some newly updated hotel rooms can feel cold and clinical, this felt room cozy, warm, and homey. We also loved the architecture and exterior of the buildings. The scones and coffee delivered in the morning at your door is a really nice touch (I'm also amazed at how "ninja quiet" the delivery of the coffee is in the morning - they've mastered how to deliver breakfast goodies without making a peep.) My wife said that she hoped to come back to this Lodge in the near future - a high compliment coming from her!

We feel so lucky we happened upon this wonderful find in San Luis Obispo. We loved the location as it is not right in the middle of downtown (potential parking issues) but an easy walk to the center of town (less than a mile). The room is well appointed with an electric kettle and clever, individual pour-over coffee packets (as well as tea). Tasteful, minimalist decor with clean, contemporary lines. Comfy bed and plush towels. Free parking! Our room was really quiet with a peaceful, green view. Staff members were all friendly and helpful. Of course, as you've already seen in other reviews, the crowning, welcoming touch was the complimentary coffee and scones in the morning. It was like waiting for Santa Claus!

Upon checking in at the San Luis Creek Lodge, I was greeted by a friendly gentleman who, in addition to checking me in, asked if I needed restaurant recommendations. After chatting about that he informed me that, "a tote bag with fresh scones and a thermos of coffee would be hung on our doorknob sometime between 7:00 and 7:30 AM" (I might have the times wrong but you get the idea.)

Hello! Doorknob scones?! I was all in. (They were delicious, btw, *and* we got to keep the cute tote bag.)

Clearly this hotel is somebody's labor of love. The rooms and lobby are meticulously decorated in a boho-chic style. The bathroom was precious, with pink Moroccan tile and the shower knobs placed opposite the spout so you could adjust the temp without freezing or scalding yourself.

All this AND the price was very reasonable. I will definitely stay there again should I find myself in SLO.

Because this place is a hidden gem in SLO! I don't want people to discover this hotel. It is one of the nicest and most charming hotels. The rooms are gorgeous. The coffee in the morning delicious ! I even went the coffee shop to buy more. The staff is so nice and accommodating. I called the office on our first day to ask about non slip shower mats as I was concerned about my 80 year old mother slipping in shower. The person at the front desk said that they did not have any. By the end of that day all our rooms and we had three booked had non slips in every shower for us to use. I was so impressed with all the care and concern they demonstrated. I honestly cant say enough good things about this property. I will be coming back in the fall for another road trip and will be staying here again.

This hotel is quiet, well maintained with very comfortable beds in a great location, only a short drive or 20 minute walk to the center of SLO. A number of comments mention the helpfulness of Greg and his staff and we have to agree. Very friendly, helpful, and always checking to see if there is anything you need to make your stay more comfortable. This hotel will always be our first choice when visiting the vineyards of SLO.

Stylish, large room with the best shower of our whole trip- great pressure, huge, and we loved the Aesop body wash, shampoo, conditioner and body cream. Quiet and with free use bikes which we very much appreciated! Only a few cons- for the price, the same (super sweet) scone in a bag daily for breakfast wasn't ideal three mornings in a row, and we'd have loved more than three tea bags. The bedroom floors were a little dirty (white socks) though the rest of the place was immaculate.

Apart from this, staff were lovely, the room was gorgeous and having parking was a real bonus.

We stayed here for 1 night during our way to San Francisco from LA, this place looked good in photos but its even better in reality. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into this clean modern room with light soft music playing. In the morning we were served with Hot coffee in thermos and fresh scones, what a nice way to start the morning ! We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent room. We stayed in #3. Had a fireplace, very comfy king bed. The shower was high up (perfect for us tall peeps), strong water pressure AND the control handle was on the opposite wall, so you didn’t have to get wet when turning it on! The room itself was spacious, high ceilings and lovely, modern decor. Also, the best mini bar I’ve seen in a long time. Unique products, including a $50 candle, several local beers, hard seltzer, wine in a can, etc.
They have bikes, but no common area that I saw (or even a bench outside our room) which would’ve been nice to sip our champagne that we brought with.
Overall, well done, reimagined hotel at a fair price.

I have reviewed San Luis Creek Lodge as a solo traveler; this time I was back with partner and our two senior dogs. "SLCL" has become the "go to" stop for everyone in our family when driving between SF and LA. Sure, you could bomb up or down I-5 in one day, but if you have the time, why not give yourself a mini-vacation in SLO at the SLCL? The staff, the decor, the music playing when you step into your room, the fireplace - you can feel your tension level fall. And the bedding is heavenly!
This is the first time we stayed with dogs and found it a perfect location (no room rugs=no worries over "accidents"), sidewalks for short walks in the area, and a short drive to beautiful downtown SLO for longer walks and great restaurants. SLCL will be seeing us again!

I agree as well. My wife and I were both satisfied with the breakfast items (Eggs, Bacon, Potatoes, Cereal, Granola, Yogurt, Toast, Bagels, Juice), and it was enough to start the day without having to go out for breakfast.
