Verified Reviews of Downtown Slo Inn San Luis Obispo

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Second worst motel I have stayed in"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Facility appeared to be run down, needed painting, sidewalk repair, and door to our room had the metal weather striping pulled away from the bottom of the door. That was the good part. Bed had skirting around frame, this skirting was stained with two (approx. 12 inch) dark liquid stains. Room needed painting. There were stains and dirt around the sink. The shower/toilet area was very small and not at all well cleaned. Toilet seat was abraded, window recess showed mold and dark liquid stain, shower walls had either not been cleaned at all or done very poorly. Shower curtain was ripped. Light fixture in ceiling that had been a combination light and heat lamp was missing parts that exposed dirt in the light fixture. Further, the heat lamp had been replaced with a standard light bulb. Very high price for the room and it would appear that no money had been expended for any on going maintenance to any part of the facility. We will never stay in this place again. My wife and I take three to four short (one to four night) trips each year. After first walking in the room, if I thought there was any way I could have gotten my money back we would have left and found another place to stay for the night. This was a rip off. To finish off the experience as we were turning in our keys the cleaning staff was having breakfast at the very small food/coffee offering in the lobby. They made no effort to let us even get up close to look, much less get anything from the very limited selection.
