Fodor's Expert Review The Kinney San Luis Obispo

1800 Monterey St., San Luis Obispo, California, 93401, USA

The Kinney celebrates nearby Cal Poly's culture and history in fun, hipster fashion, with local photos, college sports equipment displays, and hanging wicker swings and vintage games and books in the lobby lounge. Contemporary photos of local surf and beach scenes adorn ceilings and walls in rooms and suites (dream of riding through perfect barrels while you fall asleep). Leroy's, the on-site bar and restaurant, caters to a college crowd.
