The Royal Oak is a few blocks out of downtown SLO, and not really walkable. It is across the street from a sizable shopping mall with some fast food restaurants, Starbucks, etc. The latter is significant as the breakfast provided isn't all that interesting. Our room was comfortable but the decor was something out of the1960s. Bed was comfortable; bathroom... More

This stay was a present surprise. I picked the room for the price and the bed was really good. Pillows average. Room was very adequate. Liked that the glasses were glass rather than plastic that we experienced at Hilton Garden Inn in No Scottsdale, AZ. However the breakfast was subpar. Make your own waffles were good but no fresh fruit... More

If you need a good night sleep before the SLO race, then this is a great choice! It was close by the Expo and the finish line, plus had modern day amenities. Thinking about coming back for pleasure, and may stay here again. Bed was unbelievably comfortable.

We stopped in SLO as an overnight point for our drive from LA up the PCH to northern CA. We really just needed a good, clean, quiet, comfortable place to lay our heads for the night, and a good breakfast to start us off the next morning. In this hotel we got all of that. The guy who checked us... More

The service is awesome and it is located in front of a little mall with a lot of restaurants and stores. The hotel has really good rooms and a stunning breakfast, complete and lovely, besides that you can also have a lot of information about what to do in San Luis Obispo, I totally recommend.

The front desk attendants were pleasant and helpful. The room and bed were comfortable. The breakfast was good. I enjoyed the fresh grapefruit. They also own the IHOP next door and give discounts. It was a good value for this area. I would stay here again.

The young man at the front desk who greeted us upon our arrive was cheerful and helpful. Even though the hotel was full and we arrived in the evening, our on-line request of adjacent rooms for our family members was honored. The rooms quiet (except for a few minutes when some kids were sprinting back and forth in the hall)... More

Very spacious, clean and newly renovated rooms with very comfortable bed. Service great and close to everything. Breakfast left something to be desired. Ate there 1st morning but went to IHOP (next door - discount given to hotel guest) next morning.
