It may be too soon to tell what impact the government shut down has on Central Coast businesses. It all may depend on if a resolution comes sooner rather than later.
The general managers at the Courtyard Marriott and Hampton Inn on Calle Joaquin say so far there hasn't been a ripple effect from the shutdown and they haven't had any cancellations. That may be because there isn't much government travel locally at this time.
Hotels are hoping that it doesn't have a lingering effect. Since national parks and forests are closed, it may impact vacationers drawn to the area. However, hotels won't know until the end of the quarter when they are able to pencil out the numbers.
