We Stayed at the Best Western in Atascadero for a long weekend of fun at the coast. Since this Best Western is a ways from the coast the price was much more reasonable than anything at the coast itself but they make up for it with a wide variety of amenities including a laundry room and access to a fitness...

The Best Western plus colony in Atascadero is a great stop for our family driving up from San Diego to San Francisco, the hotel staff is very friendly and the room is nice and clean. The bed is really comfortable it feels like home :)

Thank you for your kind & encouraging comments. We pride ourselves of being "Family Friendly" and providing a safe, quiet & comfortable location in which to rest and relax. Our large outdoor pool & spa add to that comfort. And later this year we expect to have completed our new breakfast dining room. The larger, dedicated room will enhance our... More

Find a B&B you will be better off. The price for your quality is unrealistic. The breakfast was a scramble for the food and a table to sit at. Plan ahead and find a better place where they don't gouge you.

Dear John, Thank you for sharing your comments. As I have already responded to you via Best Western channels, I won't make this a detailed response. I regret you don't feel that you got value for your money. I respectfully disagree with your use of the term "gouging", which is both illegal & immoral. The price you were charged was... More

The room was clean and quiet, the bed was comfortable and the complimentary breakfast was very good. Parking was abundant and in my case very near my room. Unfortunately did not get to use the pool, but it looked very nice.

Booked on internet to find a more up-market Best Western. Parking right around the building so you never park far from an entrance to your room. Friendly staff, sizeable rooms, entire hotel is non smoking. Bathroom condiments more than adequate and replaced daily, detail like folding towels in different patterns daily. Rooms equipped with fridge, microwave and coffee machine. Hotel... More

We stayed five nights as part of the Memorial Day celebration. The room was quiet, clean, and efficient. The breakfast bar was well stocked with a variety of breakfast items. Not easily found from the freeway; but well marked on Google maps.

Thank you for your concise review. It is good to hear that you had a pleasant & comfortable visit. And yes, we are not on a busy corner, though we are adjacent to HIghway 101. Just remember to exit San Anselmo. Go east a halk block to El Camino Real and north one block. We sit in a mix of... More

After a long drive through Big Sur, we were all tired and stressed, as it was already our little toddler's sleeping time. I could not find a place to buy milk and I checked with the hotel reception gentleman, he said that there was not milk for sale in the vending machine but he could bring me one from the... More

Hotel is old and needs renovating; clogged sinks; shower water spraying outside of tub; smelly bedsheets. other than that the hotel was good; service is good. Breakfast not great but it's free. Good to be able to grab a banana before heading out for the day.

This is a wonderful hotel with caring and accommodating employees. Excellent value and excellent price. We were given a handicapped room right inside the side entrance and just steps away from the breakfast area. When we asked for an additional chair for the room, one was delivered promptly. The sleeper sofa was already made up which was a definite PLUS!

It is good to hear we met your needs and provided the comfort & convenience you deserve. Often times it can be the little things that get overlooked or not properly attend to and results in a less than positive experience. It is reassuring to know that we "did it right" in meeting your needs. Thank you for your feedback... More

My overnight stay was selected for its convenience to my driving itinerary, but I was overwhelmed with the friendliness of the staff and their helpful suggestions for dining. I was also impressed with the breakfast they served and how clean the property was kept. Though I didn't use it, the pool looked most inviting and was handicap accessible. I would... More
