Place - This is a pretty little hotel. It is nice and newly updated throughout. It has a modern, simple feel. It's very clean and a little bit quaint. Coffee, tea and fresh cookies in the lobby are a nice touch. Service - The service was great. No problems. We had had to make a change to our reservation dates... More

La Cuesta Inn This is located right on Monterey Street, about one block south (yes, due south) of the 101. Very convenient to get to, and right across the street from the Apple Farm motel. Check-In - Check-in was fairly quick and painless. No issues. - Can't speak to checkout - wife did that - but she expressed no complaints... More

Had a business trip in San Luis Obispo and I stayed there due to the very easy access. All of the rooms were remolded and it was very clean with lots of room for my king bed. Bathroom was adequate and the shower head was very nice. Have a swimming pool and a spa for those summer days and cool... More

We stayed here during our Spring Break visit to Cal Poly. It's a great hotel in the middle of a college town. Check in was quick and easy. They had just put out some cookies in the lobby, for guest. They were warm and good. The room was clean and spacious enough with two queen beds. There was a sliding... More

We Stopped off in this hotel for just one night while on a two week coach tour across California. We arrived mid afternoon and left the next morning, but for our short time here, the place was comfy and clean and did the job fine.

I have been sending by parents to stay at this hotel since I was in undergrad at Cal Poly. Now this hotel is my personal favorite choice when I visit. My husband and I booked a block of rooms here for our wedding guests in January 2015 and definitely felt taken care of! All our wedding guests who stayed here... More

Holiday weekend and we were lucky. Last room available for one night. Wasn't a broom closet, very nice room. The staff was more than accommodating. The only knock was the breakfast, was very so so. Not bad, just ok. Lots of carbs and very little protein. Overall very nice. Would definitely recommend.

The very friendly staff here teamed up and had all of our keys ready quickly. Our room was spacious, and the bed was comfortable. All pillows were non-feather, which is helpful to allergy sufferers. There were no outlets at bedside, so we had to set our phones across the rooms to charge overnight--not great. A simple power hub on each... More

Thanks for your review and we appreciate your comments. For business and leisure travelers alike, reliable Wi-fi is essential. We recently experienced a power outage that affected some of our modems, this was not apparent right away but a recycle of the system brought us back to full capacity. We apologize you experienced this during your stay.The beside I-pod docs... More
