We had a great stay here & would definitely stay again. The newly remodelled room had a fridge and an abundance of pillows. Pool & whirlpool were lovely, as was the fitness center. Free continental breakfast was pretty good - yogurt, fruit, cereal, waffles etc. Two miles from downtown San Luis Obispo; you could probably walk downtown if you wanted... More

We only spent one night here on our way north to San Francisco, but it was a great place for this purpose. Very clean, newly remodeled room. Breakfast was adequate. Architecture is a little cold, but the room comfortable.

I was pleasantly surprised on the updates that has occurred at the Best Western Royal Oak. Very pet friendly and they even have a 15x30 fenced in pet relief area. The room was clean and hotel staff was very pleasant. If you are traveling with your dog this is the place to stay in SLO. Right next to Laguna Lake... More

This hotel is not for the budget traveller. We paid $170 ( $152 + taxes) for a room with a king-sized bed on a Saturday night. The receptionist told me that this hotel had been full every night from May to September this year so if you plan to stay here, reservations sound like they are a must. The 3rd... More

Clean and well located for those travelling by car. Nice staff and a big room. The breakfast doesn't had eggs, natural fruit juices, cheese and other expected things. Another point: all tableware used in the breakfast was disposable.

The hotel has thin walls and ceilings and you can hear everything your neighbours do. The hotel is opposite a mall which was good to do some shopping. Stayed as part of a tour and the first person wake up was at 5am and effectivelt woke everyone else.Avoid if you can.

I have stayed here many times in the past few years. Rooms are clean & a bit larger than the motels in town. Many rooms have a nice view of the mountains. Bathrooms are clean & very functional. Breakfast room is bright & cheery, food is above standard for Best Western; hard boiled eggs, yogurt, fruits, juices breads etc. Property... More

We had our grandson with us so that he could go swimming. The pool was heated and beautiful...as was the the hot tub. Our room was spotless with everything we needed. The afternoon wine reception was a nice touch. The continental breakfast was very nice with a variety of items. Only negative would be that it is located on a... More

I love this hotel. I love that the rooms are clean and in good repair and generously sized, that they have queen/queen rooms (as opposed to full/full--best for parties of 4), that the price is reasonable, the location is ideal--across from a very nice shopping/restaurant center, and just over the highway from downtown. I love the friendly staff at the... More
