Stay away from this dive.
This was by far the worst hotel we have experienced. We had a family event the same weekend as Cal Poly Welcome Week so everything was booked. Looking at the lower prices and other reviews here, we paid $195 for one night, king bedroom so watch out if you stay over a busy weekend. Today the price is $69. We checked in quickly and the smell of disinfectant was nauseating so we opened the windows & left for our family event, not to return until 9pm. Then we noticed how poorly maintained the room was. We expect a budget hotel to be basic, clean and operational. This one was none of these. Curtains were hanging off the rod, large areas of chipped paint at the windows and walls, stains/spots on the thin towels, toilet plunger in the bathroom (is this a routine problem and we were expected to use it?), missing light bulb in bath and table, broken and damaged lamps, mold or ? around the shower, water pressure poor. The bed is not just firm but hard as a board, thankfully, the sheets were clean. Our neighbor above us got up several times that night, we could hear every step. We were too concerned about cleanliness to use the shower so I can't report on that. The front desk person was rude on check-in, no lobby coffee except between 7 and 11 am, no 24 hour front desk, just a place to drop your key in a slot. Their property photos are very misleading, look at the photos from the guests if you decide to take a chance and book here.

Never again
Nobody came in to change towels, bed sheets, etc etc-had to call and ask for clean towels, the desk clerk said "No" so I repeated the request again thinking maybe he didn't hear me-to which he asked "why"??? The walls are paper thin. Heard everything the lady in the room next to us was doing...apparently she was having a good time between 2am-5am. I get that it's a "Budget Inn" an all....but to have to argue with the desk clerk for toilet paper and clean towels is a little ridiculous to me.
