Stayed here for two nights while checking out the local college open house. Great location. Close to the college and close to downtown. Room was clean and recently updated. It was nice to see they tried to renovate. Not to nitpick, but you could tell it wasn't done by professionals. The paint in the bathroom was already chipping and the... More

Our room was nice and we were satisfied. Best Western Somerset Inn is in a good location, certainly convenient to downtown San Luis Obispo and freeways. The price was very fair. The breakfast, although appreciated, was simply adequate. The staff was friendly and helpful.

SLO is a beautiful town. We could walk to downtown from this restaurant, although a bit long walk. Had comfortable bed at this hotel. But it is right next to a pub. I could hear noises of from the pub late into night. Our room had a broken fridge. Perhaps the fridge was not even plugged in. May be that... More

The receptionist was friendly and good humoured. Facilities in the room were excellent, all being fairly new. The beds were very comfortable (I think this may be a Best Western thing, I stayed in...

Overall, this motel served the purpose of our stay. But for the price, it should have had better room look and feel. The bed was the best part of the room. Very comfortable after a long day of working. The work to upgrade their rooms could have been an extra plus. Parking was to be desired. The parking lot was... More

Hotel was remodeling while we were there. Construction started right at 8am so I never was able to sleep in like I would have liked to on my Spring Break Vacation (I teach elementary school). Hotel manager seemed to not think it was a problem.

Hotel going through remodel - does not care about noise to it's staying paying loyal customers - just wants to book rooms - when brought up about noise was promised it was done on that side, so next it starts again.

Spotless and great value. Comfortable bed and linens . Staff very helpful and friendly. Great location close to everything. Would definitely stay again. Pictures don't do this property justice. Highly recommend.

This hotel was in a great location, close to 101, the university and to downtown. The staff was helpful with directions and provided information about local hiking spots. Our room was spacious and clean. The breakfast was fine with a selection of cereals, yogurt, waffles and hard boiled eggs. It is a motel set up with doors opening to the... More
