This place is perfect in every respect...from its Central location, excelent value to outstanding comfort. The very best part though is the people who work here and make this the best place to stay in SLO. My visits to SLO are pretty uncertain at times with many last minute reservation changes and even cancellations. I could always count on Oneida,... More

I wasn't sure of this place at first since my friend booked the room for us and I hadn't heard of it, but I was pleasantly surprised. The room we got was closer towards the freeway so there was a bit of noise one of the nights when a semi-truck parked near the off-ramp for about 10-20 minutes, thankfully the... More

Check in was wonderful! We were checked in by MARIA very friendly and attentive, quick easy process. PETER helped us in the evening when we needed more pillows and coffee he was very friendly and quickly responded to our requests. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was amazing! Lots of options! Hot waffle maker, toast, an assortment of bagels, cereal,... More

Comfortable beds, great morning breakfast, clean, outstanding customer service and a great location. Very impressed with the front desk agent working over our stay. We had called and asked for an extra pillow.. He could not find one, but came to our room with a blanket wrapped in a pillow case. I was impressed!

Thanks for your review runnerMom we appreciate your comments and happy to hear your stay was pleasant! Our staff proved their innovation in this case - we experienced a flurry of extra requests during your stay and demand exceeded supply. More pillows are on the way. We hope to see you again on your next trip to San Luis!! More

Wonderful stay for the $$. We stayed 3 nights in 2 rooms and enjoyed the many amenities this lovely boutique hotel offers. Rooms were very clean, modern and comfortable - Bedding comfortable, TV, Cable/HBO, WiFi all good. (though the Guest PC was very sluggish). Free Continental breakfast was an added treat - yet with so many really good places to... More

On the way home from SF, we decided that we would stay the night in San Luis Obispo, and booked a room at this place the night before arriving. The woman at the front desk was friendly, the lobby was nice and the room was pretty good size. While we did have a balcony, 3/4 of it was blocked by... More

Thanks for your review. I have shared your comments with housekeeping, and apologize for the mishap in missing the trash on the balcony, as they are a lovely feature of the property. We may have had another room available, it is always best to contact the front desk at the time if you are unhappy with the view as we... More

Must comment on the very hard working and friendly staff especially a young lady that was assisting the morning breakfast group, Cortney, thank you for your help and we wanted to insure that management was aware of your extra effort.

The location was right off the 101, so it was very noisy - especially on the veranda. Inside the room was clean and comfortable, but there was really nothing special about the room, the property or location. I did have a good experience with the desk staff who helped to print some directions for me.

Hi Lynn, thank you for your comments and review. While we are conveniently located right off the 101, we rarely get complaints about noise due to our sturdy concrete construction. We hoped you enjoyed your time in beautiful San Luis! More

We really enjoyed our stay. We were with many other family members and we're all on the same floor very near each other. The room and amenities were very nice. The service was over the top. I got there a little before my room was ready so waited out by the pool. When my room was ready Renee came out... More

My family enjoyed our stay at La Cuesta. We stayed for four nights. It was comfortable, clean, and a great location to downtown San Luis Obispo as well as Cal Poly and the beaches. I would really like to compliment Courteney who was in charge of the free breakfast. She worked hard to keep everything stocked and clean all the... More
