My stay at Marianne's was absolutely lovely. The pretty room is accurately reflected in the picture on the site, and the bed was comfortable with nice linens. The bathroom is sparkly clean, and connected directly to the bedroom so you don't have to leave the bedroom to use it. The house is charming, and in an excellent location about 0.5 mile from all the restaurants, coffee houses and shops. I stayed Friday evening through Sunday morning, and it was the perfect place from which to launch and return each day tired and ready for a quiet and good night's sleep. I highly recommend Marianne's place.

Great place and location! Walkable to eveything in slo. Yet quiet and safe neighborhood. The family is super friendly and welcoming. I so enjoyed getting to know them and they have great information about the town and willingly share. Felt like I had as much privacy and interaction as I needed. Great vibe. I see why other guests make this their go to place in slo. The room is very nice and I slept like a log every night. There is a lovely backyard that is really nice to sit and relax. All in all a good experience. Highly recommended.

I had a great stay at Marianne's place in downtown San Luis Obispo! Check in was really easy and her husband was super friendly giving us recommendations of where to hike. The home was located within walking distance of a bunch of great restaurants and bars downtown and was easy to get to from the highway. Street parking was plentiful. The house had a nice set of amenities and was comfortable. Charming decor and a plant-filled backyard made it feel like home. I would recommend this place for a visit to SLO!
