(NON-BLOCKED) HOTEL SUGGESTIONS

MADONNA INN

The Madonna Inn is like no other - adorned with a pseudo-Swiss-Alps exterior and lavish common rooms accented by pink roses, Western murals, and hammered copper. Each of the 110 guest rooms and suites are uniquely designed and themed. Everything is grandiose à la Las Vegas, but located in quaint San Luis Obispo. For a good laugh, pop into the men's restroom to view the famous rock waterfall urinal.

GRANADA HOTEL

This place is super swanky;  If you are looking to splurge on a fancy boutique hotel right in the heart of downtown, we suggest Granada. Go downstairs for an incredible meal and tasty cocktails at the Bistro. The rooms are luxurious - exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, hand crafted steel windows, goose down duvets and pillows, original artwork and antiques - the works

Apple Farm Inn

Everyone loves Apple Farm. Combining the charm of wine country inns with the modern conveniences of a luxury hotel, Apple Farm Inn offers one of the best lodging experiences in town. Most rooms have a cozy fireplace and seating nooks. The deluxe accommodations feature lush quiet gardens. It is Wine Country hospitality at it's finest. They also have a great restaurant and bakery.

ALTERNATIVE LODGING OPTIONS

HOSTEL OBISPO

This is the most affordable and most cozy option for families and friends. They have shared dormitory-style rooms (bunk beds) that can sleep up to 6 people per room with co-ed and gender-specific rooms available. They also have private rooms that have 1, 2, or 3 beds of various sizes. Sidenote: their sourdough pancakes (included in your stay) are super delicious. In fact, Kendra used to drop in and eat pancakes here all the time when she lived around the block, back in her ol' college days :)

OUTSIDE OF SLO CITY

Consider staying outside of downtown San Luis Obispo. SLO County is scattered with lovely little towns, all in close proximity (15-45 minute drive):
Cambria
Paso Robles
Templeton
Atascadero
Santa Margarita
Cayucos

Avila Beach
Pismo Beach
Shell Beach
Arroyo Grande

Lake Lopez (great for RVs & camping!)


WHERE TO PLAY IN SAN LUIS OBISPO

It's 4th of July weekend, experience the Central Coast at it's finest! Here are some fun things to do:

SURF & BEACH

The Central Coast is full of fun nooks and crannies just waiting to be shredded. May the gnar be with you. FYI: Avila Beach, Pismo Beach, and Cayucos all have piers and swingsets. 

CAFES

There is no shortage of cafes in this college town, our favorites include: Uptown Espresso, Scout Coffee, Sally Loo's, Bello Mundo, Linnaea's,...just to name a few!

MOVIES

We love the Palm Theatre. It showcases a variety of independent, foreign, and mainstream cinema. Fun fact: it was the first movie theatre in the US to be run by solar energy!

HIKING

Pick your pace: Terrace Hill - piece of cake with an epic view, Madonna Mountain - moderate/leisurely, Bishop's Peak - intermediate/advanced. 

BIKING

The Bob Jones Trail and Orcutt (towards Lake Lopez) are both great for road biking. If you are looking to moutain bike, we suggest the trails at Montana De Oro.

DRIVES

We love a good drive with a pretty view. We suggest:

  • Route 46 connecting Paso Robles with Cambria, it passes through Paso Robles' Westside, famous for world-class Zinfandels before descending to the sea. Absolutely beautiful views of the ocean from the top of the ridge. 
  • Perfumo Canyon, between Avila Beach and SLO is a gorgeous oak-studded road up over the ridge separating SLO from the ocean, before dropping into a shady, peaceful canyon. This windy two lane road feels like a trip back in time; what coastal California must have felt like before all the development.
