Friendly staff!

The two staff who initially showed me the unit where friendly and clearly communicated about the process. When I booked online, I got a call within 10 minutes. And on move-in day, the two of them were once again friendly, opened the office just before 8am, and quickly helped me get all the paperwork done. Overall, the price was fair, unit was clean and ready, and the staff made the whole experience great!

Little rust but works for my needs

This place is kind of janky. The lock clasps are rusty, the units have particle board walls that are bracketed together and starting to fall apart. My unit is in a separate area right next to the freeway and had a homeless camp right next to the gate. Sure, makes me uncomfortable, but at least most of the units are occupied and there is insurance required. All in all I’ve felt less comfortable at other establishments, but I have definitely been to some facilities that are much better maintained. I chose this place because of the AAA discount available.

Quick, helpful, and easy.

My roommate and I go to Cal Poly SLO and needed a place to store some of our belongings over the summer. We called sparefoot and we were helped out immediately. The person we talked to set up a reservation at Mini U storage and we were able to get our unit within 45 minutes of calling. The manager at Mini U was really nice and showed us the unit it right away and when we said we were in, he gave us the paperwork and we were done within 20 minutes. Highly recommend both of these services.

Recommended: Yes

Michelle May 08, 2017

The prices are about $25 more than everywhere else.

Loved the guy who did all the paper work. It's too expensive. The only reason I moved in there was because I got the first month free because of AAA.

Recommended: Yes

Excellent customer service, safe and well maintained.

Mini U Storage in Atascadero has been outstanding in customer service and maintaining a safe, well protected, clean and efficient facility. They offer a free truck to move your stuff in so how does it get any better than that? They offer renters insurance at a very inexpensive rate and have always gone above and beyond to assist their customers. I highly recommend this facility.

Recommended: Yes

Shelli Limon Apr 19, 2017

Well maintained & excellent customer service!!!

Had my things stored with Mini U for quite sonetime and they've always accommodated me no matter what. Excellent customer service at the Atascadero office. The only thing is the increase in the rates. It's getting a little high.

Nice Drive-Up Facility

We just moved in and used our AAA card to get the first month free. Very happy with their pricing and customer service. The manager we met was super friendly and personable, and gave us a golf cart ride to the unit to make sure it was acceptable before taking any money. All the units are drive-ups, which makes moving items in and out very easy.

Recommended: Yes

This business is managed by one of the rudest and most foul person. They are extremely rude and disrespectful to the customers. The man that manages the place assaulted my mother by grabbing her and trying to rip something out of her hand

Great price, professional service, 'Free Truck'!

Aisles are a bit too narrow, especially using a large truck. Clean but basic fiber-board storage interiors are adequate - hence the lower prices. All-in-all great value for money!

Recommended: Yes

Nicole Galloway Mar 02, 2015

cheap, with fair to poor customer service.

Old guy is pretty grouchy. Likes to say no a lot. But it was the cheapest I found. Truck out front read 1) free lock upon move in 2) free month rent and 3) free shelving for units avail. I did not get any of those things and when asked about them was told that was a truck from a different location and was not valid. And that I was the 3rd person to ask. Then do something about it or give me a $10 dollar lock!

Recommended: Yes


An outstanding storage facility with an excellent and very customer focused staff.

Very nice facility and the staff were very helpful and even offered discounts for the unit that I rented. I would not hesitate to recommend Mini U Storage to anyone looking for a well managed facility with very nice people to work with in getting the unit ready and filled with our belongings . Additionally, we had a minor accident with the rental truck at the storage facility and they "jumped in" immediately to assist us in making contact with Penske and getting the help that we needed to resolve the problem. The staff member (John) did a super job in calming our nerves and getting Penske personnel involved in getting a tow truck out to the facility. I can't say enough about John, the assistant manager's outstanding support in resolving this minor accident issue.
