Bad experience....beware of this motel!
Beware of this motel! The check in was slow, the tv and the phone didnt work, and the screens were torn on the two back windows. Which i brought to their attention. Tv was fixed, he said he couldnt do anything about the phone and didnt care about the screens. The next day we had maid service but one of the towels had curly hair on it, so i went to the office to ask for new towels. I was questioned about if i had maid service and since i did, than i shouldnt need new towels. I explained they were not clean, he than proceeded to tell me that i must check out at 11oclock tomorrow, even though i had the room reserved and paid for over a month prior to visit. He said i was too much trouble and i needed to go to a 5 star hotel because i asked for too much. I walke out shock The next morning i went to the office to see if he had changed his mind. I was told that i had to go because they had a big group arriving. I again said i had paid reservations. Than i was told i was just too much of a problem, i asked for too much. So i than said fine id like a refund, i was told not by them since i booked through hotels.com. i was stunned by their behavior and for asking me to leave for amenities and customer service that should be supplied. I would not recommend the budget inn, they were obviously rude and very unhelpful and blamed the customer, i will never be staying here again. Too bad, he price was great as was the location, 15 minute walk into San Luis Obispo and 10 minutes from campus.

The reasons, i stay there is close to Cal Poly and easy to downtown. I would not recommend anyone to stay in that hotel. The bathroom is too small and around the corner is cracked and dirty. I feel very sad when I walked into that hotel.

Stay away from this dive.
This was by far the worst hotel we have experienced. We had a family event the same weekend as Cal Poly Welcome Week so everything was booked. Looking at the lower prices and other reviews here, we paid $195 for one night, king bedroom so watch out if you stay over a busy weekend. Today the price is $69. We checked in quickly and the smell of disinfectant was nauseating so we opened the windows & left for our family event, not to return until 9pm. Then we noticed how poorly maintained the room was. We expect a budget hotel to be basic, clean and operational. This one was none of these. Curtains were hanging off the rod, large areas of chipped paint at the windows and walls, stains/spots on the thin towels, toilet plunger in the bathroom (is this a routine problem and we were expected to use it?), missing light bulb in bath and table, broken and damaged lamps, mold or ? around the shower, water pressure poor. The bed is not just firm but hard as a board, thankfully, the sheets were clean. Our neighbor above us got up several times that night, we could hear every step. We were too concerned about cleanliness to use the shower so I can't report on that. The front desk person was rude on check-in, no lobby coffee except between 7 and 11 am, no 24 hour front desk, just a place to drop your key in a slot. Their property photos are very misleading, look at the photos from the guests if you decide to take a chance and book here.

Never again
Nobody came in to change towels, bed sheets, etc etc-had to call and ask for clean towels, the desk clerk said "No" so I repeated the request again thinking maybe he didn't hear me-to which he asked "why"??? The walls are paper thin. Heard everything the lady in the room next to us was doing...apparently she was having a good time between 2am-5am. I get that it's a "Budget Inn" an all....but to have to argue with the desk clerk for toilet paper and clean towels is a little ridiculous to me.
