... we are greated by our tour guide, a very knowledgable man who runs through the scripted tour in a way that does not come across as scripted. After the tour, you have the choice of strolling around the gardens or signing up for another guided tour (which can be done without leaving the hilltop).



We opt for walking around ourselves and find that we can easily spend a few hours just ...

Louisiana home designs

A travel blog entry by juryross9

... country manor houses. These homes tend to be built of brick or stucco, are symmetrical fit and slim with the windows balanced on spare on both of the entrance, and have absolutely steep, hipped roofs. The tall second-story windows help with the opinion of height. In Normandy and the Loire Valley barns and farm silos were frequently that come with main living areas in place of separated. Following the First World ...

... Friendly cabbie was from Panama. Dinner last night was hummus, pita & vege plate (got to try jicama - pronounce "hicama" again - luvly flavour & crunchy), followed by pasta prima vera. Tonight I thought I might try the tomato fennel soup but not vegan apparently so had the pasta again, this time with an amazing salad, of course some california red wines to go with the meal. Breakfast each day I had fresh fruit & steel cut oatmeal porridge, with toast and "breakfast ...

... Bobby got some new fins for snorkeling as her old fins wore out. Thanks Cory. Also, did some banking so the casita rental in Mexico is paid off. Basic housekeeping on the X, even gave her a bath, since we can't rely on free Oregon car washes. I did not use the wax cycle. Right around the corner from us is William Randolph Hearst's castle at San Simeon. I have always been fascinated by Hearst. Mostly because his yellow journalism started ...

... been pretty full-on. We even went back for a relaxing afternoon to await an announcement on Doctor Who! We were sidelined by the owner, who showed us the San Luis creek below. We joked whether his name was Bates, Norman Bates! In the afternoon we jumped in the car and headed out to one of the wineries, Claiborne & Churchill, where the friendly server, who'd had an English boyfriend, let us try a ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews San Luis Creek Lodge San Luis Obispo

    Great decor,,,,,,perfect for romance

    from

    This place met all of my expectations. We statyed one night in the Craftsman lodge,,,the bathroom tile is beautifully hand laid, the wood floors, fireplace..all beautiful,,, felt like a pricey room in Tahoe more than a simple place to stay for the night. I loved the furnishings...most rooms feel so dull with the bare minimum, not this place... huge arm chairs...table, dresser, fridge, closet, very impressed. Bed was comfey and I liked the privacy factor. Only negitive was the fan in the bathroom not working, but that was no biggie. We would stay there again and recomend 2 friends.

    A Find In SLO

    from

    Situated near downtown SLO, next to a strip of hotels/motels/inns, Morgan's Mansions stand out because of its attention to detail. Facing Monterey St., it is composed of the registration area, behind it is the Londonberry, then the Craftsman, then the Plantation Mansion which is on the far end of the lot, facing the creek. Accommodating about 12 rooms, we chose the Plantation. The room was nicely decorated with real paintings, good furniture, wide tv screen & dvd player (tv stand was a little low in height though), plus 2 sinks in the bathroom and a jacuzzi too. Complimentary continental breakfast was okay, composed of an assortment of breads, cereal, coffee, juice, yogurt. I highly recommend this hotel. The only downside -- small space for parking.

    Excellent

    from

    I was visiting Cal Poly on business and found this hotel to be excellent place to stay. The room was large, very comfortable, quiet, beautifully decorated. Gas fireplace was a nice touch. The front desk staff were smart, friendly and very helpful. The property itself (outside the room and the lobby) is simple and functional (no pool or outside sitting areas). Very nice place for the price.

    Air conditioning problems

    from

    My family and I spent 3 nites ( July 2003) here. The first rrom we were given had broken air conditioner so we were transferred to another room. The second room had broken air conditioner, the third room had major air conditioning problems. Water seeped from the air conditioner vent (vent located above door) and leaked all over the rug. Walls were bubbling and filled with water. Paint was literally bubbling up and water was seeping out. Had to put towels and ice bucket in front of door to catch water dripping from ceiling vent. Spoke with other guests who had broken a/c's also. The rooms were nice but a/c sucks.Might be okay to stay in winter but forget it when you need an a/c.

    The best in San Luis Obispo, by far!!

    from

    What a fantastic find!! A quiet, stylish and well priced hotel within walking distance of downtown. Fantastic REAL art in every room, and I think they all have fireplaces too. Rooms are well laid out and beautifully put together. I have been recommending this terrific hotel to all my friends. Great friendly staff too!

    Morgan's Mansions, never stay anywhere else!

    from

    I'll never stay anywhere else! So nice, so new! THey are only a year old and our room still smelled new. They have very unique and interesting artwork & furniture, I have never seen a hotel like it. The staff is incredible!

    Least favorite

    from

    My sister & I traveled from San Diego to San Francisco then back again.

    We found The Londonderry to be the most expensive and our least favorite. The beds were OK but we went to bed and woke up hearing water running through the pipes in the walls. The room was a bit drab & there was nothing interesting on the walls. We did enjoy the complimentary breakfast, however.

    Graet new find!

    from

    When in San Luis Obispo to visit our daughter at school, we normally stay at the lovely Petit Soleil but when we tried to book a room for two nights on Graduation Weekend 2003, they were quite full. I found a new hotel that looked interesting from its website, Morgan's Mansions. Also located close to the Cal Poly campus on Monterey in SLO, it is a collection of four buildings, a "Gatehouse" that houses Registration and Guest Services (breakfast in the AM...I didn't partake!) and three 'Mansions" in three different styles. They are surrounded by the asphalt parking lot---from the website, I expected to see grass! I only saw my room in the 'Plantation Mansion' so that is what I can comment on. I was given Room 608, at the farside of the property backing along the Creek. The room was pale yellow with white crown molding, a fireplace and two lovely pieces of artwork on the walls. A huge comfy king bed , computer desk, writing desk, large TV and refrigerator in a cabinet topped with a coffee maker completed the room...it was a large room ! The windows opened to the woodsy area flanking the creek. I could hear the wind rustling through the trees, and birds calling..I know there is a woodpecker out there! I just didn't get to see him. At night the crickets and frogs have a vocal competition but, late at night, if you wake up, all you can hear is the Creek gently flowing by...HEAVEN !!!! "and the Sun flows in like butterscotch and sticks to all your senses"...Joni Mitchell, "Chelsea Morning"...couldn't be more appropriate! So, why isn't this delightful property given the highest rating? A few things... The carpet is a blue-grey industrial...makes sense from a $$$ perspective, but certainly not "Luxury-Class" I am convinced that my bed was just 'made'...no new sheets. I don't have a problem with that if I am informed that this is the policy of the hotel. I wasn't...my daughter found hairs on all of the pillows..."Mom, are ally sure about the towels. I will certainly stay here again as a second choice in SLO, but i may ask about the cleanliness policy next time!

    Great for Cal Poly Parents

    from

    My parents were so pleased with their room. They came up to visit me and a girl in my class told me about this hotel. I booked them a room and now they won't stay anywhere else. They loved their room because it had tapestries on the wall and a fireplace.

    A great new find!

    from

    We stumbled on this new hotel by accident. Everything is brand new, it just opened in August. It is very elegant with 3 buildings all in different styles. We were really impressed with the comfort of the beds. They have REAL paintings in the room. We stayed in an african room -- what fun! The people who work there are fun and friendly.
