“Excellent for traveling through”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

As we were traveling I had no time to use an Internet booking site as. Usually did so I just walked in and asked for their best rate. The receptionist was great and lowered it to the AAA rate for me and even then it was not too bad. The room was very comfortable, bed and bedding very nice and bathroom clean. We were offered drinks vouchers for happy hour and breakfast was also included. Just a basic breakfast bar but enough! Recommend this for travellers and even longer stays as it was in great position, pool area was terrific as well.

Room Tip: Some rooms a long way from the reception as it is a large hotel. If you need to , ask for room close...

Recently my wife and I stayed with Best Western Royal Oak in San Luis Obispo. The hotel was spacious clean and comfortable. What suprised me was the professional attitude of the Staff. The dest clerk was courteous and knowlegable above and beyond what was expected. Later we were greeted with a welcome glass of wine at happy hour. Once again the staff was very good at making us feel welcome. Thanks Best Western!

I am in the hotel industry so I know a bit about hotels and I have to give this hotel an A+ for everything it offers for a reasonable price. It is not a luxury hotel but very clean, comfortable, spacious and friendly to pets as well as people. A lot of hotels claim to be pet friendly when they are only pet tolerant. This one is friendly and there were people with dogs everywhere. The staff is helpful, smiling and the location is convenient. For the price & location you simply cannot beat this hotel. The breakfast is plentiful but simple (make your own waffles, heat your own egg/sausage english muffin, yogurt, fruit, boiled eggs, cereal etc) but they offer a 20% discount to guests at the IHOP next door if you want a fancy breakfast. I cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed my stay there.

We stayed here on a recent trip through SLO because we happened to have our dog with us and this place was listed as one of the better pet-friendly places in the area. It's not a luxury hotel by any means, but it was just fine, and I would gladly stay here again.

The rooms are a nice size, and very clean, with comfortable mattresses and bedding. Although pets are allowed (for a $15 fee), there was no hint of pet odors, fur, or other mess in the rooms. Dogs are welcomed (they even give you a couple of dog biscuits as a treat for your pet on check-in), and there seemed to be quite a few dogs staying there with their owners, but there was no barking or other noise audible in the rooms.

There is free wi-fi access in the rooms, and it works quite well. There is a small, but nicely-equipped for its size, workout area. The pool and jacuzzi area is spacious and nicely maintained. The property has a small fenced-in pet exercise area where dogs can run around off-leash.

The heating/AC system is a little outdated (wall units that don't have thermostats to shut the fan off when the room reaches the desired temperature), but it works OK, albeit a little too noisy.

All in all, not the fanciest place in the world, but certainly nice enough, and very nicely maintained. And it comes at a reasonble price for this Central Coast location.

Pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed my stay here. Front desk is very helpful with all my questions about the town & transit. The grounds and pool are very well keep. Free WiFi afternoon snacks and a very inexpensive added cost to have our dog stay in the room. I will definitely stay at this hotel again when in SLO!

This is our second stay at this Best Western. Staff is efficient. Our dogs are welcomed. The fenced dog yard is a plus. Location near freeway, restaurants is convenient. Rooms are clean & comfortable.
