“Perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Went to SLO for a visit to Cal Poly. Great lodging. Super clean, comfortable room. Appeared to have been updated. Friendly and very helpful front desk staff. Borrowed DVDs from lobby - good selection. Perfect value. Close to Cal Poly and downtown. Judging from the other properties nearby that were options I looked at online, I was very happy with my choice. Would definitely stay there again on next visit!

Room Tip: I liked being in 2nd floor.

Stayed here when travelling between la and San Francisco on a coach tour recently. Very nice hotel, lovely irish bar just up the road. Would happily stay here again. free breakfast was a nice change and although really busy when we were all trying to get it at the same time plenty of replenishment.

My wife and I stayed at La Cuesta 3 years ago and enjoyed our stay. When planning our recent visit to California we again decided to stay at La Cuesta. The reservation was made some months in advance and I subsequently read some mediocre reviews on Trip Advisor. I did wonder if standards had fallen since our last visit. Fortunately this was not the case. The only thing that did seem to have changed was that an additional seating area had been provided for breakfast. We actually had our breakfast outside by the pool, basking in the early morning sun. We were able to benefit from a mid week, 3 nights for the price of 2, deal which made our stay very reasonably priced. Even without such a deal I would say that La Cuesta represent very good vaule for money. Should we ever return to the Central Coast then we will certainly be staying here again.

I ususally spend one or 2 nights in Santa Barbara when going from San Diego to San Francisco and vice-versa. And used to stop for lunch at San Luis Obispo. This year, I decided to spend a night in San Luis Obispo. Looked for a hotel and chose La Cuesta Inn. No regrets. Will easilly go back there. Nice room. Quiet. Well located hotel. Not far from down town Higuera Street where the restaurants, bars and shops are.
They have got every thing I need: Cable TV, free parking and room Wi Fi, air conditioning, good beds. It is clean and quiet.
Breakfast is continental. Simples but enough.

Room Tip: If you came back to the hotel very late at night, you might have trouble parking ... In this case yo...

Would recommend this place after staying her with our family (2a 2c). Great location - easy to find with our rental car. The hotel was wonderful - a great little breakfast offering, and the kids loved the swimming pool (the best in our 4 weeks of travel according to them). Nice clean spa, rooms and hotel. Good sized room and clean. Friendly, helpful service at front desk. Thanks

Great motel with many amenities - great beds, lovely pillows, and comfy comforter, a must have. Located right across the road from the famous Apple Farm Restaurant. The staff was delightful from the beginning of check-in to check-out. Clean, comfortable, with everything you could possibly need right there tucked away in special locations of the room. Liked the bathroom set-up, didn't have to wake anyone up to get ready for the day and especially enjoyed the convenience of an additional separate sink and mirror. Extra room to lay out all your toiletries. The set up of the room made it easy for one person to get ready while the other person slept.
Quaint, nice cozy room with balcony, would highly recommend this pleasurable motel.

Room Tip: Excellent location directly across the street from the famous Apple Farm Restaurant.

I stayed here on a business trip and was surprised how comfortable the room was. Check in was super easy and the girl at the front desk was really nice. The bed is amazingly comfortable, I wanted to steal one of the down pillows. I didn't try the breakfast but I heard it was good. Close by are Pappy Mcgreggors which has great bloody Mary's and Splash Cafe has world famous clam chowder. I loved that the bathroom amenities were coconut lime verbena from Bath and Body Works and there was a rubber ducky in the bathtub. I highly recommend this hotel for an inexpensive, comfortable night's sleep.
