Historical Traveler Reviews Peach Tree Inn San Luis Obispo
QUAINT, FRIENDLY INN
We stayed at the Peach Tree when making an 8-hour trip from LA to San Francisco. We wanted to stop halfway to really enjoy the area. The Peach Tree is a motel - yes - but it is very cute and comfortable. Doesn't feel at all like a Motel 6 or some type of motor inn, and that's what I was hoping for. The staff was very friendly and offered us free movies to take back to our room (there are VCRs in the rooms), as well as free snacks. (Great for hungry travelers!) The trolley picked us up in front of the inn and for a quarter, we were given a short, fun ride to downtown San Luis Obispo, where we toured an old mission. Definitely try to make the Thursday night farmer's market if you can - the atmosphere was more like a street fair. And for those who would like to visit the Hearst Castle, it is only about 45 minutes away and the drive is gorgeous.
Overall, the room was comfortable and clean, the bathtub oversized and the staff friendly. The creek side rooms, where we stayed, had a sizable private back patio, but not much of a creek. The thrill is in the cute inn and the great town. Oh! And fresh homemade bread in the mornings!
This is a motel
Okay - first things first - this Inn is a MOTEL! Second - don't go based on the website - such a great presentation, but again, this is just a roadside motel. That being said, if you want to stay at a roadside motel then this one was pretty nice. It was very clean, and suited our needs as a place to stay. The staff was VERY friendly and accommodating. The rooms were VERY small but the king size bed and pillows were really comfortable. The breakfast area was really nice. They had homemade breads, cereal, muffins, fruit and juice. They had a computer with internet access available. They also had a nice corner with books and a chair for young kids. After getting over the fact that this was a motel we were happy with our stay.
The Peach Tree is a very nice roadside motel--the nicest of any ubiqitious roadside motels I've stayed. That said, it is still a roadside motel (no lobby, limited services). While it may be more expensive than other similar-type motels, the entire SLO area isn't cheap. I surely feel the stay was consumate with the price.
This is What Travelling is For...
I pulled in to SLO looking for a cheap motel and was directed to the Peachtree. The rate was really reasonable and the hotel was absolutely fantastic. The room was spotless, the bed was comfortable and the home-made bread in the morning was a nice touch.
This is an example of what happens when people care about what they do. Take a modest motel and make it somewhere you really want to stay.
Can't recommend this highly enough if you are looking for unpretentious, clean and comfortable.
Best Motel on our 1 month tour1
This was perhaps the friendlist motel we stayed in of the 30 odd we stayed in, during our California tour.
We paid $70 for the night, and had a 1 king-bed room, which was very nice and clean.
The motel staff are extremly friendly and helpul here, and try their best to ensure your stay is good. There is a free internet point here as well.
The breakfast is also excellent, with fresh bread, and lots of fruit.
Really enjoyed our stay here, and would recommend to anyone going/stopping in San Luis Obispo
A Good Place To Stop
We stop here in our trip from L.A. to San Francisco. Very quiet place, normal room size but clean and friendly. A very good breakfast served in the lobby. Internet point free.
Stayed at the Peach Tree Inn for two nights, September 2005.
Staff/Owners were very pleasant at all times. Very relaxing setting and good compimentary breakfast items, some made on the premises.
The rooms are a little on the small side, particulaly when equiped with two queen beds. We took rooms at the rear as the rooms at the front of the premises are smaller than those at the back, apparently. The style of the rooms is a bit old fashioned and could probably do with a bit of updating but I expect that is part of the attraction of the place for a lot of people.
The rooms/bathrooms were clean and well maintained, as was the whole property, generally.
We enjoyed our visit and would probably stay there again.
Peach Tree Inn is a place not to miss.
We decided to take time out of our busy lives to get out of the Palm Springs heat.Having traveled to many places, I am ALWAYS picky where I stay. I just don't know where to begin on how to discribe a place that has excellent prices for rooms, and still manage to give outstanding service.
The Peach Tree Inn is a diamond that sits on a hill in San Luis Obispo, California. The VERY CLEAN country style motel offers almost a Full breakfast with juices, fresh fruit, muffins, coffee, tea, cereal, and all sorts of wonderful goodies I can get my hands on.
The beautiful courtyard slopes down into a valley like setting, and I was able to sit out on the porch,and drink my coffee in peace. It felt like all of my troubles and frustrations were swepted away by my suroundings at the Peach Tree Inn. This is exactly was I was looking for!!!! Isn't that the reason why we leave to go on vacation?????.... to relax!!!
After coming back from an evening of wondering around San Luis Obispo, The Peach Tree Inn has nice collection of movies that you can rent out and take to your room (for no extra charge) and relax for the evening with a (free ) bag of popcorn.
The Staff treated us like family, and the price was right!!!!!
It would be a shame to miss this wonderful place!!!!
Really nice - very relaxing setting
Very nice setting - pictures on website. Really enjoyed our stay. Nice breakfast included.
Small.. Clean.. Attentive.. Right in Town.. Perfect!
At the north end of Monterey Street.. ideal for visitors to Cal Poly. To visit the Downtown and Mission areas, just leave your car at the Inn! Downtown Shuttle stops right in front, takes you all over downtown for a quarter, and you can forget the downtown parking hassle.
The Inn itself is very clean, with plenty of parking on-property. Rooms at the back offer a beautiful woodland view. Their breakfast area is bright and roomy, and the delicious continental breakfast includes homemade baked goods.
Mr and Mrs Hitchcock run the Inn like you are family. Their nightly rates are an agreeable surprise, and they have a toll-free number, 800-227-6396. (Oh, and Wi-Fi access too!) A pleasant place to relax and enjoy.

... to Avail a middle class seaside town that had a Friday night farmers market on. Complete with live music. Went for a beer on the pier, watched the sunset, chatted to a local fisherman told us about the size of the sharks you could catch off the pier, claimed that he once saw someone catching a 9ft shark. Left Avail in search of accommodation booked into the next town at a motel chain. Had our first dinner at Denny's a big diner ...

I also got to meet up with another great friend, Stacey, with her family at Klondike pizza (if you're in Arroyo Grande, this place is a must, and McKlintock's steak house....oh, and clam chowder at Splash. wait, where was I? Oh yeah...) to catch up and meet her new chubby-cheeked-grinning son. ...
Today after a great breakfast at Novo on Higuera St, we walked the three blocks to Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa.
If I remember right, I think this was the mission I made for my 4th grade mission project. The structure was made of sugar cubes, and the roof was made of cardboard. I made clay pots for "trees" by hand out of dough. The trees were made of baby's breath. I remember that part ...
