Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by maw8 Nice hotel, great location for Cal Poly Visit
We stayed here for one night as we toured the Cal Poly campus. The rooms were spacious and well decorated. The beds were comfortable as were the pillows. The linens on the beds were fine but not as high quality as I was expecting.
The location is on the same street at many hotels which are all within a mile or so from downtown and the campus. We were impressed with the decor of the hotel. It looks like its been recently remodeled. The rooms look like that as well but the bathrooms were a surprise. Although they were all clean it seemed that they hadn't been updated. Not that big a deal but surprising since the rest is all so nice.
The breakfast was fine, nothing special. They had the fun pancake machine but they were out of syrup. The had yogurt, cereal, hardboiled eggs, bagels and all the usual. There seemed to be just enough tables for the guests and there was enough room to walk around. They had free newspapers everywhere which was really nice.

The staff was great, but the rooms were a disappointment.
The rooms had a musty "off" smell. We were grateful that the rooms had opening windows. The linens/towels were worn. We were provided two towels etc. even though we booked it as 3 staying and had to ask for the additional towels.
There was a lot of noise transferred from other rooms and we had folks knocking on our door late at night.
Liked the location, but wouldn't stay here again.

I was welcomed as a gold club member at check in but was disappointed I was not provided a first floor room nor a room with microwave and refrigerator. Breakfast the last day the sauage gravy was nasty (last day only).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Betsy54 A bit shabby.
The entrance, the lobby and the breakfast area were lovely. The room was shabby. We are ambassador members but we were not offered an upgrade even though it was a Monday and the hotel was not that busy. The room we had needs to be redone.

As always my stay is enjoyable the staff is always willing to help with my needs and questions. My only dislike is no microwave in rooms or available after food court area closes, some times I like to pick up food to bring back so I don't have to go out after teaching all day and thats not available to me.

Sound travels through walls and nearby apartment noise carries into the room.
Last time the hotel room had pay movies. We enjoy being able to watch current movies in hotel room. Would not have been an issue except TV stations are also limited. Several of our favorite channels are not included, such as SyFy. Considering what the hotel charges, it was a disappointment.
The worst was the smell. Apparently someone decided it was a good idea to use a very strong smelling cheese to blend into the eggs. On Sunday morning the lobby and even the hallways smelled as if someone had gotten sick and threw up. It smelled so bad I had to ask the front desk, which is when I learned what the source of the smell was (which the front lobby staff agreed with my assessment).
I stay regularly at Holiday Inn but I have serious reservation I would stay there again. The ONLY positive I found was its location but there are others nearby that will probably get my business in the future.
