Our Guests Say It Best

Hip & Comfortable

The ultra mid-century modern Kinney is comfortable and creatively decorated. The bar is cozy and fun with retro games like skee-ball and shuffleboard. There is a great fire pit outside, a pool, good craft beers on tap, and the staff were very welcoming.

Great Staycation

We spent the weekend in SLO and stayed at The Kinney. What a great experience! The hotel had a super cool vibe and the staff was so friendly and helpful. We ate at Leroy’s (inside the hotel) and it was just as awesome. Will be back for sure!
