Had a fun stay at this ultra kitschy hotel! We stayed in The Elegance room. Kind of creepy cool in the best way. I loved the little nook with the queen size bed. Nice to have that small space to myself. Downtown San Luis Obispo has a number of good restaurants and cute shops.

Nice and clean. Great breakfast! Walls are super thin , so I heard every single word (and screaming baby) from beside me. Other than that, it was great, and I have no complaints! Just bring a noisemaker for sleeping if you’re a light sleeper.
