Loved the Ramada Olive Tree
We had great time at Ramada Inn Olive Tree, the staff was excellent made our vacation so enjoyable. The room was clean and comfortable and we definatly go back whenever we are in that area again.
The manager is a THIEF!!!
The rates are competitive at this motel, but the manager is very dishonest. We called a week earlier to have a discount magazine left at the front desk of this place. Our contact said she would leave the coupons with the manager at the front desk. When we arrived, he said that no one had dropped anything off with him or left anything for us.
He was lying. We called our travel contact, and she said she had just dropped it off yesterday. The manager stole our discount coupon books for himself!!! Unbelievable!
Then, the maid forgot to leave us some soap. We asked the manager for two bars of soap, one for the bath, and one for the sink. The cheap bastard informed us that we could only have one. Beware of the management. They will steal and lie to you!
For the $$ this was an excellent experience. The one and two bed room suites were roomy 7 comfortable. Professional staff & Service
Clean and reasonable place to be
we stayed in December holidays on the way from San Francisco. We checked in late and front desk was so helpful in settling to the room. we had great breakfast and very helpful in giving direction.
We would definetly recomand it and we will go back
their again and again
The Management was The worse My family has ever delt with in my live, the manager did not speek english and was RUDE!, I think the owner of this ramada need's to make a change. NOW.The rooms where very nice but not cleaned very well, also the food next door was not up to par. other then that the rest of our stay was nice. BAD MANAGEMENT.
Customer service should be # one. I wish we had found this site before we booked, NOW WE WILL check out trip advisor everytime we book, and so should you.
Loved the staff
We stayed in November 27& 28, 2002 We had wonderful time in San Luis Obispo, We had family reunion and Ramda Inn Olive Tree staff took care of all our request. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We would go their again and again...
Bad experience with the Ramada Inn, Olive Tree
I booked a 2 day online reservation and didn't have any problems with the check-in. Later on that night, unfortunately, my luck turned ugly.
After returning from dinner, my husband and I found ourselves locked out of our room. When speaking to the manager, he informed me that he had made a mistake in billing and was supposed to charge us a higher price than the one I agreed to. After acknowledging his error, I asked him if the price of the room I agreed to was still the same as to what I signed for. He said it was still the same. Low and behold after checking my credit card service online days later, my credit card had been charged the higher price.
I called the manager and he told me he would check into the matter. After four days of not being called back, I had to call him again and got into a hostile phone conversation because he said that I had agreed to go ahead and be charged the higher price than the one I had agreed to at check-in. I told him that he had made the error and good business is to not lie to your customers. I told him that all I wanted was the difference between the two prices to be returned to my credit card. He agreed to refund the difference but days later, it still hasn't been credited.
Don't go through the headache and anger that I have gone through. Bad management. There are plenty of hotels across the street from the Ramada Inn. Stay away from this hotel!!
Don't go there
Another industry down the drain. Now owned, I believe, as franchises, this one is particularly bad. I made reservations online for $139 for a suite, $89 for another room. When I called to change it to 2 nights instead of 3, they had mistakenly had us down for 4 nights. I said I had AAA, would they give me the discount, they said yes.
They did not. They said when we paid it was 'already included' (on the web, impossible to know if everyone has AAA). So they cheated me out of $28 and $18. He could not speak much English and was hostile. The room would have been ok, but the stove in the kitchen was filthy, there were no kitchen tools (why have a kitchen with no tools). I asked for the other room to be a smoking room. It was not. The 'free coffee' included one (1) creamer and sugar. I had to request more (their policy is to put out only one. They did it both days).
I regret these ever more and more cheap ways to handle the 'hospitality' industry, and really abhor the filth and mistrust that these new owners seem to have. I would never go there again. It is awful to have to try to find out if a name brand place is really bad now because of individual owners or franchees.
Don't be fooled
Just returning from the Olive Tree Inn, I feel compeled to tell you that it was nothing like what I thought it would be. I found a web sight showing pictures of it which were inaccurate. The managers where helpless at best. The maids yelled at me for smoking in the room - YELLED. The room was dirty. The food at the attached reastuarant was terrible (although the staff there was atleast friendly). The heated pool? Forget it - not heated, slightly green, smaller then the room you're sitting in right now.
Terrible, etc, etc, etc.

That evening was a boring one for Ben and I as we were not up to a crazy night out, so we went to the hotel that his family were staying in nearby, and borrowed their beach, swimming pool and hot tub access. That evening we all went for clam chowder, which was so tasty! And ended up with maybe 15 of us all hanging out in his grandparents' motel room. When we left we were more than ready for bed, and there were hugs and hotel recommendations ...
... who voted, but probably all the inhabitants of San Luis Obispo. No doubt we will find out over the next couple of days.
We leave Santa Barbara and head north through the mountains and vineyards towards Lake Cachuma. We bypass Solvang which is a very pretty village, with many Danish inhabitants. We carry on past Santa Maria, Nipoma, Arroyo Grande and finally arrive in San Luis Obispo. We are staying at the Apple Farm Inn, ...
... when bubblegum began to mysteriously appear on the walls of a non descript alley in the town centre. Forty years later it has become famous, as thousands have added their masticated offerings resulting in Bubblegum Alley. A weird strawberry smell elicits the area which is colourful and makes for a good photo but let's face it, sooooo gross!
The Madonna Inn was wicked. No two ways about it. Vegas has nothing on this place - my Mum would absolutely love it! The ...
... castle before. The part of the story that always amazes me is the amount of stuff Hearst dismantled in Europe only to be mothballed in storage here. There are whole houses and rooms from other castles, not to mention tile and statues and who knows what. A lot was sold after the stock market crash in 1929, but still lots left. No wonder granddaughter Patty Hearst flipped out. Obscene wealth.
... OMG!!! And I will back that up with a WOW and a HOLY COW! Everywhere you turn your head you need to click the camera. Hard to imagine the cliff faces of the mountains being as high and beautiful as they are. To see the valley in real life is just beautiful. Was very fortunate to get a nice warm day as this is very late in Yosemite season. Yosemite has already had low temps of 17. Took lots of pictures, lots n lots ...
