Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites San Luis Obispo
Our family stayed at this hotel for one night. Room was large, clean and comfortable. Weird location - in a strip mall, but nice none the less. Front desk staff was extermely knowledgable, friendly and helpful. Parking is free. Conveinent to US1, 101 and a short drive from downtown. Breakfast was very good - typical embassy breakfast. Good price - no issuees.
Accomodations are average
We stayed at the Embassy Suites on a CA road trip. I had never stayed at an Embassy Suites before so I have no idea how they rate in comparison to other ES hotels. I thought the room was dingy. It seemed clean but it was very dark inside. The furniture in the living room part of the suite was old. Also, the hotel is located right next to the freeway, so you will hear some car noise. Actually you won't hear the car noise until the piano noise from the lobby is over for the night (9pm?).
They did have a breakfast in the morning. If you decide to eat eggs, have them make you a special order rather than just scramble eggs which were already cooked. I noticed that people who had the plain scrambled eggs took one bite and did not finish them. My husband had a Denver omlette, and said it was fine. They also have a Belgian waffle stand where you can make your own waffles. The coffee was average, but there is a Starbucks in the shopping center next door.
Overall, if the rooms were updated, this would be a pretty good deal. If I were to go back to SLO, I would probably check out another place to stay.
Opinion from a local
I live here in San Luis but have stayed at this hotel a couple times over the past year or two. First of all, avoid the drinks at the bar! They are way overpriced and very WEAk! (If you want a fun bar and a cool atmosphere, head downtown to McCarthy's Irish Pub.) They don't even appear to have an official bartender. Just some person who happens to notice patrons approaching the bar, and then someone comes grudingly out of the woodwork to come serve you. This hotel does have a complimentary happy hour every evening, so that's always hard to beat:) The cooked to order breakfast is also surprisingly good. I've had lunch and dinner at the restaurant quite a few times which is usually hit or miss. I feel like the dinner entrees are overpriced for what you get--but that's just my opinion. I like the feel of the actual restaurant itself--it's very open and light with kind of a "big city" feel.
Example of why not to stay at hotels in malls!
We stayed two nights, which was one too many. A very loud familiy was next to us, we advised the front desk who would do nothing and at 2am we were told that if we wanted to change rooms we would have to pay the full standard (not discounted) rate.
The rooms are in dire need of renovation, quite run down and dingy. Service is poor in all areas except the restaurant - the staff there was the only redeeming feature of this otherwise horrible hotel.
We requested a tranfer to the airport and waited 25 minutes before being told that there had been a shift change and that we would have to get a taxi.
For the cost there are many other nicer hotels with better staff.
Great for a family!
Weird location for a hotel (in a mall). But rooms are large, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was great for a hotel. Great value for a family. We had 5 people and everyone had enough room. Would definitely stay here again.
Best Place in San Luis
I have been coming to San Luis on a regular basis, stayed at Embassy for the 1st time recently, and will continue to stay here from now on.... The other hotels in the area do not come close to comparison..
Brillient accommodation at Embssy Suites
We were not expecting too much of this Hotel at $159 for 4 of us. However, we were pleasantly surprised. This is a new Hotel and everything was very clean and comfortable. We had 2 large rooms with two t.v.'s, a swimming pool, gym, whirl pool, laundry, full breakfast included (one of the best breakfasts of our trip) and free drinks between 5.30 and 7.30 on the night of arrival. I will be looking for other Embassy Suites from now on. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A great place to stay.
Limites Availability Shows in Staff's Attitude!
There are too few hotel choices in the city San Luis Obispo and the staff reflects this situation with a take it or leave attitude. The property is typical of Embassy Suites, but the staff needs improvement.
We spent 1 night here while driving down Rte 1. It was a very relaxing place to stay after a long day of driving and sightseeing. Our room was quiet, spacious and clean. The free cooked-to-order breakfast and free happy hour drinks were added bonuses.
Great Place to Stay
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The rooms are very clean and spacious and the staff was friendly and helpful. It is conveniently located near shopping and dining and was a good central location for all of our sightseeing. I would definitely recommended this hotel to anyone staying in San Luis Obispo.

... and took multiple wrong turns, but still managed to get there early. Tour took us through backlot sets for all sorts of tv shows & movie sets. Gotham city street from batman, the alley where spiderman did his upside down kiss, the friends coffee shop, casablanca set, bar & alley from Yes Man (jim carrey) where he was beat up, pretty little liars coffee shop, hart of dixie doctor office. ...
... of golf. We all loved playing the course (which is right next to the campground) since it had some drastic elevation changes as compared to where we play in Florida.
Blossom and I hiked to Eagle Rock one morning which gave us some spectacular views of the area.
I could have stayed in SLO a few more days.... great little town.... maybe we'll get back here someday.
... had a great feel, its a college town so it felt all very oriented towards that. I had Chicken which was delicious, afterwards we went out for a few beers in what was apparently an "English Pub" but was really more of a Bar with flags in in called The Frog and Peach.
We were there until the early hours, chatting to locals and generally relaxing.Although the drive was classed as the Coastal Highway, the good bit where you see all of the pictures started ...
... lot of the trip was in the dark and we finally arrived about 2 1/2 hours late! On the train I got another vegan burger and some fresh fruit & nibbled a muesli bar - that was dinner. There was a driver at the station to meet us and he picked up me and a couple of Argentinian women (Paula & Paloma - I think they were mother and daughter). It was still quite a drive from Salinas station to where we were staying in Monterey. Checked in and time for ...
... so lots of views of the ocean. Santa Barbara is much greener and lush than San Luis Obispo. But, SLO has Big Sur and Santa Barbara has tons, and I mean tons of people and therefore traffic. Like the area we are in much better than down there.
10/3/13....Oh, I also forgot to bring up somewhere along the way the Clam Chowder from Splash Cafe. I am not a big fan of Clam Chowder but OMG is this soup out of this ...
