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.
