This hotel is old and needs updating, the bathroom amenities are marginal and the floor wasn't finished from recent update. Spend the extra $20 and stay at the other BW in the area, have stayed at both and the other is much better. Not really sure how this property got its PLUS rating.

This is an older hotel but the facilities and standards were good, breakfast was in a small area but very good and everything you need. Really helpful and pleasant staff and a good location for exploring SLO or just passing through. Was busy but our room was quiet, clean and well appointed. Only stayed one night but would definitely book... More

We had a great stay at this hotel. The managers Gayle and Troy went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable with our stay. They were helpful with advice on our travels and very friendly. The young lady at the desk at checkout, Breanne was also great and knowledgeable. Our room was clean and the beds comfortable.... More

The Best Western Somerset is a great location and value for staying in San Luis Obispo. The staff is friendly and the rooms have been updated. it was very quiet even though the place was filled up. We come up once or twice a year and like to stay there.

The check in was smooth, and we actually got a better room than we paid for. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed making our own waffles for breakfast, and the selection of items on which to dine was very good for the price.

Gayle, Troy, and Breanne made our week long stay at Best Western Somerset Inn in San Luis Obispo a terrific experience. They assisted us on multiple occasions, most notably in reducing our cost by half from the “best price” as calculated by a travel agent. From check-in, we felt like family.

front desk did offer a discounted price because they had not changed the sheets or cleaned the room. loud air conditioner. upon arrival the attendant was absent from the desk. breakfast was carbs only. room really dirty. I do not think this hotel should be labeled best western.

Enjoyable stay however, the bathroom window above toilet is facing parking lot of adjacent hotel. No fan in bathroom so window has to be open for ventilation. No privacy. Close to everything and freeway.
