... Alaska. Quite a few had left already but there were still plenty to see on the beach, I saw mothers feeding babies and some of the adults mating. A lot just lying around dozing on the sand. There were board walks around the edge of the beach for the public, the elephant seals are massive and can get quite violent if approached. There were docents around (new word for the day - means a volunteer guide). This elderly lady was chatting to us and ...
... he reckoned. We make it safely out of San Fran and hit the highway. Absolutely beautiful drive. I experience my first Taco Bell (really good surprisingly), and we head off again. The hills are on both sides of us and unbelievable. Our first 'argument' of the trip ensues, after a 'miscommunication' from the GPS navigation - it was telling me things, Andrew didn't believe it or listen and we end up miles off track! Anyhow, suffice to ...
... the billiard room and the dining hall were magnificent rooms - and far more tasteful than I imagined. Some of the sculpture was wonderful and sat with the modern furnishings so well. I would have loved to have been a guest here! We also were amazed by the indoor Roman bath, which is still used. We wandered around the gardens, admired more of the artefacts and flowers before catching the bus back. I ate a Hearst burger, from their ranch, ...
... twist and turn dangerously close to the big drop down into the ocean. The only draw back was time. The roads were so narrow and sharp that speed was minimal. Once you were on here, we could not get off. We stopped off in the Big Sur next, but because of time, we had to race through this area. It look amazing - a green forest type area that look out of place in the middle of the highway 1 route. But we had to crack on, so it was hard to take any of it in. An hour or so into this ...
... view mirror, was amazing. Gary just kept saying, "I can't believe we're in CA." It was mile after mile of mountains and vales and rolling hills all cloaked in ten different shades of green and forests of trees with swaying spanish moss and cows lightly scattered and grazing these hills. I kept saying, "I want the milk that comes from those happy cows."
We hugged the coast as much as possible, but didn't really hit a beach town until Pismo.

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.
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?).
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.
