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

We spent one night at the La Cuesta while we were in town for a wedding. The hotel was super clean. Staff was very accommodating, helping us get three rooms close together. The bed was soooo comfortable. Nice amenities like cookies and tea in the afternoon. For breakfast there were waffles, muffins, yogurt, fruit, cereal. It was a great stay.... More

Almost a perfect stay as far as rooms, locations, cleanliness and service, EXCEPT for the breakfast. I wouldn't categorize this as a breakfast. More like a morning snack bar. Other than that, the rooms are very big, bathrooms even bigger. Beds are very comfortable and everything is so clean. Great stay!

While we currently offer a well rounded continental breakfast selection along with hot waffles we do like to hear ways we could improve your experience. Perhaps a selection of local breads to increase the variety offered, to go along with... More

Whenever traveling to Los Angeles, we always stay at La Cuesta Inn. Usually the price is reasonable (under $100). We have always found La Cuesta to be clean, nicely appointed, roomy and friendly. The tea and cookies in the afternoon are always appreciated.

We returned to the La Cuesta Inn based on our prior stay last spring. We're glad we did. The staff was very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. We met a New York family staying in town for a wedding & we all felt at home. We will return again & again when visiting SLO.

This place looked cute on the website, but don't be fooled by the photos. It is not away from the freeway. In fact, the freeway exits right next to the hotel's drive way. We booked a room for four days, but when we got there, the lobby smelled of soap. The halls were painted gray with no baseboards. We opened... More

I am sorry to hear of your experience CynthiaB, certainly not the type of incident we expect our guests to have. Our rooms are kept to a high standard of cleanliness, and our cleaning scents are intended to lightly freshen a room. While our renovations were in progress, every effort was made to reduce the impact on our guests. Entire... More
