The Dive that is Comfort Inn & Suites Lamplighter in San Luis Obispo

April 20th, 2009

I stay in a lot of nice hotels, but I also stay in a lot of cheap hotels.  Occasionally I get lucky and get both.  Several Mom and Pop Hotels off the beaten path have been $35 a night and bordered on Bed and Breakfast quality.

The Dive that is Comfort Inn & Suites Lamplighter in San Luis Obispo, CA is not one of those.

I checked in late at night it was about 1 am when I arrived at the Comfort Inn, and the attendant was nice, but it was all down hill from there.

I didn’t really check the room out when I first got there, or I might have decided to sleep in the car.

I did notice right away that the sink dripped and the drain plug was broken, but the drip, drip, drip that I was hearing was actually in the next room’s bathroom, so all night, DRIP, DRIP, DRIP, Woosh as the tank refilled.

It wasn’t until the next morning I noticed how nasty the sheets were.

Here’s a close up of that ugly stain.  I don’t want to know what it is, but when bleaching doesn’t take the stain out, throw away the sheets ok?  I have been in dives that at least cut the stain out and patched it.  Less than ideal, but didn’t make me feel dirty.

And the shower.

If the room were clean, it would still have been an expensive place at $75 a night plus tax.

I don’t need much, but at that price the room should be clean and look pleasant.  At any price the room should be sanitary enough I don’t wake up, and feel dirty.

Comfort Inn & Suites Lamplighter in San Luis Obispo, CA apparently is remodeling some of the rooms according to locals, so maybe it is better on the other half of the hotel, but that is still no excuse.
