I go to SLO every 5 weeks or so to see my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. Every time I am greeted with hospitality and great service. Jacob has given me exceptional customer service and so have the other front desk people. I have been upgraded to a better room when available. They have renovated the breakfast area and upgraded the... More

My husband and I certainly enjoyed our stay at La Cuesta Inn. The staff was very friendly and we felt welcomed from the moment we checked in. Our room was clean and neat. We had a restful sleep and an overall great experience. If we ever go back to San Luis Obispo i would most definitely stay at La Cuesta... More

The bed was very comfortable and the hot tub and pool makes it ice to.dip in after check in and before dinner. It is at the end of town so it is quiet but still close to a few restaurants. While we were there th hotel lobby was going through minor renovations so we got my breakfast in our room,... More

I've been coming to La Cuesta Inn for about 5 years now. Mostly for pleasure, but occasional business. I really like the renovations, very warm and welcoming. What keeps me coming back though is the service. In particular, Jacob is fantastic. Always friendly and helpful, yet professional. Nice touch to be greeted by name after a 4 hour drive! Great...

We were not informed about the Renovations when we booked so we were greeted by a lobby that was out of order and smelling very strongly of paint. The toilet in our room blocked very easily and as it was late at night we needed a change of room. The staff arranged this immediately without any problem which we appreciated.... More

Stayed here for a night for a cal poly event. Wanted 2 queens, but they only had a "suite" when we got around to a reservation. So, we got the "suite", and it was a king bed with a pullout coach. The bed was great. And, the pullout couch was actually not bad at all. It was a brand new... More

Stayed for one night and booked based on reviews. Made a mistake with our dates but hotel changed it with no problem. Hadn't known hotel was being renovated. Lobby was closes and had to get to room via garage. Nice to be able to park under cover so wasn't a problem. A bit noisy but didn't really affect us. Room... More

Room was very large and comfortable with the only negative highlight being the shower. Staff was friendly and parking space is quite generous. Breakfast was simple but nice. Location is fine, very close to 101 and 1 Freeways and next to restaurants in San Luis downtown.

This is a really nice hotel with lots of little amenities for the money. The rooms are very clean and somewhat modern, free DVD movie rentals in the lobby, "small" breakfast buffet, ironing board in the room and to top it off excellent friendly service with a smile. I reserved two rooms and arrived at 11:30 a.m. thinking I would... More

We stopped at many hotels coming down the coast and this was one of our favorites. The front desk employees were exceptionally friendly and the hotel is located about a mile from downtown. We were given a room right off the pool (which was close), but did not cause us any problems because it was not a very busy night.... More
