“Great hotel for families!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

The location for this hotel was perfect - close to downtown, Pismo/Avila & Morro Bay + the university. The amenities were even better. It included a 5-7 pm Happy Hour, breakfast, heated pool & jacuzzi, comfy beds and a helpful staff! I would stay here again on my next visit to SLO.
Only negative was the loud A/C unit - they need to update them for sure.

Room Tip: Get a room with pool view & balcony.

Arrived very early as we were passing through anyway. Room not ready at the time but they let us store our stuff there. Came back about 6 hours later and check in went smoothly. Front end staff was great. Several restaurants in the area. One should start their cont. breakfast before 8:30 AM. It gets crowded any later. They did have the room type we ask for. We booked directly through the this BW hotel. About the same price as the discount online sites. Have seen firsthand about others not getting what they wanted by going with a discounter.

Good Best Western hotel for a stop on the way from Hearst Castle to LA. Very large and nice rooms for a very reasonable rate. Good restaurants options in the area. Nice swimming pool it seems, but no time to test it!

My family stopped in BW Plus Royal Oak Hotel as a rest place from a concert nearby. The rooms were exceptionally clean, as I have found with most Best Westerns. The rooms were spacious with a very small bathroom vanity. The beds were most comfortable. The staff were courteous and friendly when we checked in. Plenty of nearby restaurants to choose from, inclduing late night at Appleby's. Would recommend this place to stay at and would most likely stay again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room closest to the entry way and we could hear when people were coming and going...

As we are frequent travelers with our pets we appreciate a pet friendly hotel which is clean and noce and the rooms were awesome.. Pets are cleaner than kids at least ours are . WE travel with a portable puppy pen that covers the floor so that the dogs cannot have accidents or pick p anything form the floors.. SOme hotels will put you in the WORST rooms with your dogs. This hotel was freidnly well cleaned lovely to be in and was soooo comfortable!! Staff was very nice to my little dog.. I loved this place! VERY well for the dog lovers who are really starting to do a lot of travling ..LOVED THIS HOTEL

Room Tip: IT really was just a very nice hotel all around ,,,...

We stopped in San Luis Obispo for lodging on our way up from Santa Barbara. We had a next day tour at Hearst Castle which was approx. 1hr from the Hotel. This place was an excellent joice to lodge. It was clean, quiet and close to the Shopping Mall and Restaurants right across the street. We had 4 adults sharing 1 room for a 1 night stay. There was a complimentary breakfeast and pricing was very reasonable. I would definetly lodge here again and recommend this Hotel for anyone passing through.

Originally booked this hotel because it's dog-friendly. We ended up not bringing our pooch but it would have been good had she been with us. Fenced dog run available. We got a ground floor room as requested. Every room has a porch with chairs (we faced poolside). Room was good sized. Fairly quiet. (could hear a little bit of inner hall noise if people were out there) Fridge provided, but no microwave. (only a slight drawback) Didn't use the pool but the grounds were immaculate. Slept in too late to get the breakfast, which I never do, so I guess that's a good sign of a comfortable bed. Easy access to grocery and fast food across the street. Shower was quite good. (tall enough and good pressure) Overall, not exciting in any way but a good stay.
