Why am I taking the time to write this review? Because the staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, the breakfast was tasty, the hot tub was hot and the location was downtown. I don't have anything else to write, but the computer won't post my review unless I write 200 characters.

This Best Western was very nice. Newly remodeled rooms, very quiet, very spacious room, bed extremely comfortable. Love being able to open window for fresh air. Very conveniently located, walking distance to the Apple Farm.

The desk clerk made our stay unbearable.. We cut our hand on the front door with response from the clerk. I spilled cereal and apologized. The clerk looked at me like I had committed a capital crime. The whole experience was just terrible.

Arrived before normal check in but room was ready and given the key. I was playing golf in the afternoon and would not be back until 8PM. Staff was very friendly upon check in and understood the situation. Room was clean and comfortable. Dish TV with HD channels and free internet. Rooms have microwave and coffee pot. Had coffee but...

An okay place to hang your hat for a night. Room nicely appointed. Good service. Very comfortable bed. Free movies on TV. However, room felt dirty and bathroom smelled of urine and seemed like there was urine on the shower curtain and floor and around the toilet. They obviously need to fire their cleaning staff. Toilet seat was of a... More

All of the hotels in San Luis Obispo are overpriced. This hotel has very thin walls and ceilings. I had to stay on the first floor because there was no elevator. There seemed to be 3 young people above me jumping around wearing army boots. They were not having sex, just staying up until 3 AM because they were away... More

Nice, quiet place right off Highway 101 with good access to downtown and CalPoly. Helpful and friendly staff, quick to respond to issues and questions. Vehicles over 9 feet high can't get in under the portico (my car had a tall antenna which I had to take down). Breakfast adequate, but no hot eggs or bacon/sausages.

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
