I was quite surprised at the quality of this hotel. Most chains have a sort of "averageness" to them, but this one mostly exceeded my expectations.
Upon arrival, my wife and I were greeted by two
front-desk staff who assisted us with a small booking issue (not their fault) and they even upgraded us in the process. I had spoken with them several times during my stay, and every time they were helpful, friendly, and prompt with their assistance.
The room was clean and in excellent condition with several convenient amenities. It was a pretty spacious room with separate sections for living and sleeping. The bed was very soft and comfortable. The restroom was large with a spacious bath. The only quirk I had with the room was that walking could clearly be heard from the floor above. It didn't affect our rest, but if you need to sleep early, it could potentially be an issue depending on how much activity is going on up there.
The complimentary breakfast was pretty good and offers a variety of options. There is cereal, coffee, different kinds of milk and other beverages, scrambles and omelettes, bacon, sausage, toast and bagels, fruit, and a pancake machine. Quality-wise, it's about what you would expect from a complimentary breakfast, but it's certainly not bad. The only complaint I have is that the breakfast area gets busy and so food runs out pretty quick. They do replenish everything, but it can take a little while since there only appears to be one staff person manning the area.
All in all, though, I really liked this hotel. It was much better than I was expecting and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If you're in the Atascadero/Paso Robles area, this is an excellent option. [Less]
