More Exotic Hotels
Madonna Inn
San Luis Obispo is home to the world-reknowned Madonna Inn, a landmark and boutique hotel. There are 110 guestrooms, each one uniquely decorated piece of art. Madonna Inn is famous for its idiosyncratic and whimsically opulent style. Even if you don't plan on staying here, you can take a peek in some of the rooms online. Be sure to see Daisy Mae, Fox & Hound, Just Heaven, and Yahoo (just in case you've ever wanted to sleep in a chuckwagon). Madonna Inn is 7min drive from campus.

Back Bay Inn.
Los Osos is home to hidden gem, the Back Bay Inn, which is about 40 feet from the shoreline of Estero Bay/Morro Bay. This quirky boutique inn has lovely gardens, operates a cafe (which is a favourite of the locals), occasionally hosts small music festivals, and will soon be opening a tapas bar. The Loft and Studio rooms are in a building just adjacent to the Inn and are extremely nice. Back Bay Inn is 21min drive from campus.

Morro Bay is also a popular tourist destination, due largely to the scenic landmark Morro Rock and the festive embarcadero area along the waterfront. The conference organizers are unable to offer any particular recommendations for Morro Bay accommodations, but there are alleged to be many excellent hotels there. Most Morro Bay hotels are 18-20min drive from campus.
