The famously themed rooms at this historic 110-room hotel include plenty of kid-pleasers. Pint-size princesses will no doubt spin and twirl in the fairytale-like Old Mill Room, while horse-lovers can climb aboard the pint-size carousel steed in the Pony Room. If your little girls can’t get enough pink, consider the Mini Maxi or Floral Fantasy rooms. Other fun themes and features include waterfalls and rock walls in the Caveman Room and a bed supported by wagon wheels in the cowboys-and-cattle-drives-themed Yahoo Room.
Outdoors, play at a hilltop pool with a 45-foot waterfall that plunges into a lagoon. The kids can splash while you sit back and take in sweeping views of San Luis Obispo and the surrounding coastal hills. On site stables offer guided trail rides. All this, and your kids under 18 stay free.
