I have stayed at this Best Western a few times before, but this time, I was not impressed at all with my stay. Let me begin by saying that I asked EXPLICITLY if they were doing renovations and was told no. I also wanted to ensure that the pool was up and running. Again, I was assured that it would... More

Booked a room with two Queen beds - when I checked in, discovered I had been given a Queen and a pullout couch. Front desk said there was nothing else available and was not willing to provide me with any kind of discount/compensation. Brutal customer service - clerk was rude and abrupt. Rooms are disgusting. One of the families in... More

I recently spent 5 nights at the Best Western Royal Oak inn for work related purposes. First of all I have to say there is nothing royal about that hotel. The carpet in the room felt humid under my feet and there was a smell of dampness in the room. The washroom was even in worse condition. The walls and... More

Okay it's a Best Western and you know, not a resort hotel. But for what it is, it was excellent. We stayed in the OTHER Best Western in SLO and it was a clean, simple hotel but soooo different. There were no interior hallways, and the pool was so cold that even during a heat wave it was too hard... More
