Easy to find off the 101 and a really kind, friendly, helpful team. The swimming pool area is large and the pool is pretty good for a hotel - the hot tub is definitely an asset - hot and with killer jets to soften up your muscles after a day on the road. Don't choose it for the views, but... More

I stayed for two nights while my son attended his college freshman orientation in SLO. The staff was friendly, helpful and professional. I had originally booked one night and later decided to stay two so I ended up in two different rooms. The staff did try to work it out so that i could stay in the same room but... More

What a wonderful team at the Best Western SLO. We had some issues around our booking prior to arrival which they went out of their way to solve and when we arrived they were really helpful in recommending a pharmacy to pick up some medicine for my bad cold. The rooms were clean and spacious and the hotel was located... More

Wonderfully quiet location when visiting SLO for business or pleasure. Within walking distance of a variety of restaurants and shopping. Easy drive to downtown SLO and Cal Poly. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Pool and hot tub well-maintained. Staff is especially helpful.

No real complaints about the hotel. Had free standard hotel breakfast. Did surprise us with an evening reception (free drinks and light refreshments). It was real nice, not sure is only done weeknights. Hotel was clean, pretty quiet. Did have a nice outdoor pool area but we did not use it as we were there for just one night. I... More

I had to travel last minute down to San Luis Obispo on business and I was not having any luck finding a room. I stumbled across Best Western Plus Royal Oaks and I am so glad I did. Service was excellent, staff was helpful and kind--they are conveniently located off the freeway...the list goes on. Will definitely stay next time... More

I had high expectations for this hotel based on reviews I've read. The exterior of the hotel was very nice. There was ample parking. We were able to park right in front of hotel. There were lots of places to eat just walking distance from the hotel.The room we were given was a bit small for two queen beds. Internet... More

I normally stay at the Hyatt Regency, the W, etc. This was a spontaneous weekend trip. It was a bit costly for a Best Western, but what made me feel better was the service, cleanliness and location of the property. It is very conveniently located to a lot of restaurants, shopping and the freeway, not to mention it's just a... More

We enjoyed our stay. We were in town visiting our daughter at Cal Poly and it was very convenient to the Campus and to the downtown area. The pool area was very pretty. We would have liked a pool view. All the rooms have balconies but ours unfortunately faced the parking lot and Madonna Road.

If you like your hotel rooms wide and spacious, and with the equivalent of a nice ‘porch,’ this is the hotel for you while in San Luis Obispo in south-central California on Hwy. 101. But forget the free ‘breakfast,’ which is really not much and will leave you hungry for so much more (elsewhere). An older hotel that sits on... More
