Came to La Cuesta with a giant group of coworkers. Wasn't expecting much for a quick three night visit on our way up to San Francisco. Very pleasantly surprised by the service and the beautiful surroundings. Even found time to take a group trip to the beach. The front desk staff was extremely helpful, and one of the girls who...

We stayed two nights or a local family wedding. Convenient location. The staff was great...equally warm welcome and send off. Charming decor. The room was quiet, very clean and well appointed (including a magnifying mirror).

Stayed for one Saturday night recently and was impressed with the room, front desk staff and extras. Others staying there were giving the Front Desk person a hard time about a room with a view, when the hotel is adjacent HWY 101, it's really not the place you book for a room with a view, but the staff member was...

We picked this hotel for my daughter's place to stay for her wedding in Santa Margarita. I traveled to San Luis Obispo last Feb to check hotels and evaluate the cleanliness, value for the dollar and location. This hotel was the best for all of the above! The location is wonderful, the breakfast and breakfast area was great! We used... More

You got the impression that this is a well run hotel and everything a traveller could need has been provided. The room was comfortable with a little balcony, everything very clean. There is a small shop nearby in the garage selling sandwiches, wine etc. and a restaurant opposite, with more facilities a short walk away into town. Just off the... More

Last year, I wrote a review that was critical of La Cuesta since they were doing construction and we were not informed that the hotel would be a mess. The manager has since apologized and offered us a full return of our money. Since they handled our problem so well, I just wanted to say thanks.

I hadnt planned on staying at the La Cuesta Inn, but experienced a flat tire & was w/out a car. I did like my room & the continental breakfast. But what I liked MOST was the 3 girls that worked there. Judy, Maddie & Taylor had the BEST customer service. I stayed for 2 nights, and Judy was THE ABSOLUTE... More

We stayed at La Cuesta Inn while doing a tour of CA Missions and of course, visiting the San Luis Obispo mission in town. Nice lodging right off the highway and across the street from a couple of family-style restaurants. We had a double queen room — we always like the extra bed for spreading out our bags and our...

My rating is relative to other inns. I am not comparing this inn to a full-service hotel. That being said, we stayed 2 nights. The property looked well cared for and our room was well appointed and comfortable. The only exception was the bed that did not suit my tastes and appeared to have an indention in it (both mattresses).... More

I have stayed here twice and I can not say enough good things about it. It is clean, great breakfast, quiet and located close to downtown. The only negative is the parking lot is small and parking spaces are really small. I would recommend anyone staying here. I appreciate how clean this place is.

Thank you for your kind review and for choosing us when you stay in San Luis. Did you know we also offer underground covered parking? Just continue around the carpark to the basement level - it's one of our best kept secrets.. well until now! Hope to see you again soon. More
