“Great price for a nice hotel in a good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2011

I stayed here based on the quality of Trip Advisor reviews and am happy I did. I actually would have stayed up in Paso but rooms there were running $250++ on the Saturday I needed to be in town. The La Questa was well worth the price (and more).

Its in a handy location just off the freeway and close to downtown SLO. The grounds are nice, parking is available underneath the hotel or in the regular lot. They serve a free breakfast but its tempting to walk across the street to the Apple Farm for a really tasty meal instead.

The lobby is bright and clean as are the rooms. Nice bedding, room well lit, balcony overlooking the creek. All in all, very nice, no complaints - good value, good hotel, definitely recommend!!!

This place was just off the freeway and close to downtown. They offered a great rate and a nice room. It was quiet,clean and comfy. Perfect get away. We will be making this hotel our SLO home-away-from-home.

Room Tip: look for special rates on web page or AAA

This is the first time I have been motivated to write a review. My stay here was great. From moment I arrived, the friendly, helpful staff made me welcome. The room was very clean, comfortable with little touches I appreciate like - FREE Wifi - I can't believe the bigger, much more expensive hotels charge extra for this -, make-up remover towelette, a rubber ducky at teh tub, a mini fridge with room in it (not packed with overpriced minibar items), wonderful linens and towels, decent continental breakfast (again clean and maintained) and recently remodeled rooms. I would stay here again and recommend it to my friends traveling. For the price, the room was much better than I expected.

We were on a tour and only had one night at La Cuesta, we wish we could have stayed longer. Our room was clean and comfortable with THE biggest bed ever!! The staff were friendly and polite which made our stay even better.

It appears to be an older hotel however it must have been renovated. It appears nice from the outside. The employees are friendly and attractive. Rooms appear a bit older, however very clean and very comfortable beds. The price is affordable and reasonable comparably speaking to others in the same area. As far as I am concerned it was walking distance from downtown even though about 10 blocks. It is at the end of Monterey street so very little traffic and seemed quiet. The breakfast included was a plus. Would recommend to others.

I had stayed here years ago when traveling for business - it has only gotten better! If you can get a room here, stay here! You'll be very happy you did! Also, go across the street to the Apple Farm Restaurant and have a bite to eat - you won't be disappointed.
