This Best Western Plus Hotel is one of the better Plus hotels that we have stayed. The property was very clean and well kept. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only con about the stay was the breakfast offering. Overall, the breakfast was good, however, all of the other BW Plus hotels we have stayed, offered a full breakfast.... More

This is a very nice hotel with lovely swimming pool. We stayed 3 nights so they gave us a room on the top floor so we would not be bothered with noise from guests arriving and departing. The staff were very helpful and pleasant and gave us discount voucher for Restaurant next door.They also gave advice on places to sight... More

Nicely maintained Best Western with comfortable and updated rooms. Great location being close to freeway and shopping mall. Quiet even though located on busy street. Good customer service. Only complaint was having to pay $299 for one night because it was a Saturday.

This is such a wonderful, clean and super friendly hotel!! Right across the street from a McDonalds, Ralph's, Dollar Tree, Starbucks, Panera Bread, and a Chipotle! They serve a small breakfast with hard boiled eggs, waffles, breads and cereals and juices. But the best thing is the customer service! I needed to get in the room early for a wedding... More

This hotel was very good. Very comfortable bed, the sheets were comfortable, and the A/C in the room was awesome. Great location in relation to downtown SLO, Pismo and Avila Beach. The only thing that was not so great about the stay was the thin walls in the rooms, especially the ceiling. But that is about it when it comes... More

Nice hotel, good location. Easy freeway access and short drive to downtown. This is an older property with large nicely redecorated rooms. However it is very noisy. Stayed last night on the second floor, and could hear in the early evening lots of motion from room above. By 7:00 AM I could hear the conversations in the room next door... More

We stopped on the way driving from San Diego to San Francisco. Very easy to find off 101 Freeway. Plenty of parking. Very friendly and professional staff at front desk and housekeeping. The beds were comfortable with extra pillows. The swimming pool is great for families. San Luis Obispo is beautiful, and I wish we could stay longer. Next time... More

Just up the "block" from the (in)famous Madonna Inn this casual, CLEAN and inviting Best Western is your best alternative for experiencing everything the area has to offer (including the Inn) in a setting that is central, desirable and friendly. The included breakfast is generous, the rooms are spotless, the pool area is nearly resort-like and the entire staff is... More

Nice room, clean, well appointed, with very comfortable beds. We recommend it to all travelers. The hotel is conveniently located near a number of fine restaurants and within a short distance from downtown San Luis Obispo.

It's like a military barracks, the rooms are walled thin and it has a sort of shady feel to it...the location is ok depending on why you're there. The parking sort of stinks at night but that's any hotel of the highway. The front desk at night isn't trained properly on how to greet paying customers but oh well. Overall... More
