This hotel is more like Motel 6.Overpriced for the service you get. Very light breakfast with no variety. La Quinta is much cheaper and better. We stayed only one night. I am usually satisfied with Best Western hotels and like to stop for a night when I travel somewhere, but after this experience I will reconsider for a different brand.

We stay at Best Western frequently when travelling. This property met our expectations. Close to dining options that were within walking distance. Also close to the numerous wineries/tasting rooms in the area. Of course you benefit from the ocean influence even through you're a few miles inland

This Best Western has maintained a consistently good clean facility with upgraded rooms and a great location. Very easy access and only 2 stories so can get to your vehicle quickly. Staff is very friendly and efficient. Great value in SLO.

Because of a big car show we went to see, 3 weeks in advance reservation - the price gouging had already started. The price doubles when they start to get full. I found this sad. My suggestion is to lock in your price (make your reservations) a couple months in advance.)

Checked in early with no problem. Room was ready and very nice. Up to BW standards. Real glass ware for drinks. They had two free wine or beer drinks for each guest and light snacks and cheese and crackers from 5 - 7 PM. Breakfast was a continental bkfst, waffles, cereals, breads, nothing too special. Lowere quality than a BW... More

What a joke! Best Western should jerk their affiliation with this property. Location was fine but the place is no more than a semi-remodeled very old motel. When I called the front office to complain that the air conditioning did not work, the desk clerk on duty came up and managed to get it going by using a remote taped-up... More

The hotel is in a good location. Not walking distance to downtown, but there was replica cable car bus that had a stop within walking distance and made a loop through downtown and returned. Rooms are clean and bed was comfortable. Breakfast was cereal, fresh made waffles and cold boiled eggs. Quality was O.K., not great, not bad and was... More

Our room was surface cleaned, smelled of smoke, uncomfortable beds. Breakfast was not good - cereal ok - baked goods dry - did not try waffles (those who did could not get the waffle iron to work - no directions)-coffee ok

Best Westerns run the gamut -- they can be pretty bad or pretty great. This one is just not great at all. From the mildew on the bathroom walls, to the peeling paint, terrible paint work to the harsh flourescent bathroom lighting, this place just barely makes the grade of Best Westerns most basic properties. The price reflects this. But... More
