When I arrived I had accidentally booked a single bed and needed a double bed, I was upgraded to a double bed at no extra charge. Great customer service. The room itself was great, no complaints. Hotel location was right up the street from all the main strip in SLO.

Nice motel style property, spotlessly clean and quiet. Good small pool and hot tub great access from highway and only a short walk into town. Next door to a good restaurant and bar. Stayed here September 2014 and a few times in the past

This hotel is clean and very nice. We were traveling South, and it is right off the 101 freeway for a quick night stay. The breakfast also included waffles, and the room was quiet. We would stay there again.

Easy access to freeway. This is not a luxury hotel, but for the price it's certainly acceptable. The staff made us feel welcome. The room was clean and quiet. The continental breakfast was adequate. We would stay there again.

Rooms are basic but very clean. A relatively quiet hotel although it is close to the highway making it convenient to access. Breakfast is simple. Hi-Speed internet works great and is included in the price of the room. For best value and availability stay here during the week. Has the physical configuration more like that of a motel.

Check-in staff was very friendly and gave us a good tip to visit the farmer's market. He also recommended a good restaurant (mc lintocks). We walked to the farmer's market and restaurant. The room was a bit dated, but clean. Breakfast however was not good. Not a lot of choice and the quality of the food was poor.

Stayed here as there were limited rooms in SLO at time I needed a room. A little on the pricey side, but it was clean, everything was in working order, and had nice firm beds which gave me a great nights sleep. Had left my jackets in the closet after I checked out. The front desk retrieved them and held... More

I have been travelling for business quite a bit lately and have been staying in quite a few hotels, so far all within the Best Western chain. This one has by far been the worst. The desk clerk when I checked in was extremely helpful and friendly, however, that is really the best part of the stay. The hotel is... More

I booked 3 nights at the Best Western Somerset Inn and was pretty disappointed. I was traveling alone to visit my daughters who are Cal Poly students, and chose this Best Western because of its location and price. Unfortunately, there were a couple of weddings taking place that weekend, and the hotel was full of wedding guests, including a group... More

This property was a good value and clean. The staff was very professional and went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. The rooms are a bit dated, so be sure to bring your own shampoo, etc. There is a restaurant/night club next door, so there was some noise in the late evening...but not too bad.
