Great hotel but noisy
Great hotel, modern and very pretty. Clean and friendly helpful staff. However poor sound proofing of the rooms, you can hear everything from the bathroom and street noise. CAUTION do not stay on the street facing patio rooms as it sounds like you are in an actual dive bar.

6/10 Good

Have stayed here before but this trip was so far off the mark. Zero customer service, condescending management staff, small room, we had to go chasing after room amenities and towels. The only thing we were thankful for was the fabulous car valets - those guys are awesome. Those guys and the super nice restaurant next door - well worth it for dinner and a revisit. The hotel not so much. We’ll be looking elsewhere for our regular SLO trips.

Great but noisy by the bars
The hotel was amazing. Very cool vibe and nice lobby and fire pits. There was an edible garden and a nice pool to hang out by. One quibble is that one aide of the hotel is above the bars on the Main Street and the noise carries up and you can hear it. Medium sleepers would be advised to bring earplugs. We spent a Friday evening and it was lout out u til 1 or 2 in the morning.
