Meet The Kinney SLO, a bold, new San Luis Obispo hotel

Looking for a fun weekend escape to the Central Coast? Orange County-based Pacifica Hotels just opened a brand new boutique hotel in San Luis Obispo. The new Kinney SLO is a 100-room hotel and new social experience brand built to pay homage to its local community, and the hotel’s decor is completely inspired by its collegiate surroundings. Think plaid carpet and collage walls.

It’s also home to Leroy’s—a contemporary gathering spot featuring an innovative menu with dishes like Tri Tip Bahn Mi, IPA Smoked Bacon Mac N Cheese, a Shiitake Basil Turkey Burger, and outfitted with campus throwbacks and old school games.

Leroy’s brings Good Times on Tap with its self-serve beer and wine offering that features a rotating selection of the very best local craft beers and Central Coast vintages for building your own flights and tastings by the ounce. Outdoors, guests will find The Quad for more entertainment like giant Scrabble and Lite Brite, or laidback lounging fireside, a heated pool and sundeck, and more.

The Kinney’s guest rooms and suites bring an elevated college flair to the forefront from the plaid carpet to the full wall collage of classic California prints to the hoodie-style bathrobes.

Each room is complemented by modern amenities including plush beds, 55” HDTVs, mini refrigerators, Starbucks® coffee makers, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Keeping the campus vibes alive, guests may upgrade to even more space in the Grad Suite, Professor’s Suite, or the ever-spacious Dean’s Suite, each offering separate living areas with the same great amenities.  

The Kinney SLO is just 1 mile from Cal Poly State University, and downtown making it the perfect vantage point for uncovering everything the destination has to offer. Also, within easy reach are all the Central Coast attractions that make San Luis Obispo an unforgettable California getaway: hiking, biking, beaches, shopping, dining, and wine country.

And get this, now through March 31, you can book two consecutive nights at a San Luis Obispo lodging property of your choice, and San Luis Obispo will throw in $100 cash for you to spend as you choose. Cozy up at a warm café or wine bar, make new friends at several local craft breweries, indulge in award-winning cuisine, shop the charming downtown, or catch a live show.

The Kinney SLO is located at 1800 Monterey Street, San Luis Obispo. The hotel can be reached by phone at 805.544,8600 or by email at
