Restaurants & Activities

Named one of the nation’s “Best Adventure Towns” by National Geographic Travel, San Luis Obispo showcases a huge variety of action in and around its city limits. Located near Hearst Castle, our hotel is in the heart of San Luis Obispo’s excitement, entertainment and attractions.

Go hiking on rugged trails that wind along the Morros – long-dormant volcanoes surrounding the city. Spend the day working on your tan on one of our sparkling beaches like Pismo Beach or Availa Beach. Treat yourself to old-fashioned homemade ice cream or craft beer at a farmer’s market, or hit the links at a local golf course. Savor innovative farm-to-fork cuisine at an award-winning restaurant or sip a glass of excellent Cabernet at a local winery. Finally, you can go shopping or visit cultural attractions such as the Hearst Castle or an 18th-century Catholic mission.
