San Luis Obispo was the 2nd stay on my 8 day road trip from San Francisco to San Diego... I was very happy and satisfied with my visit here from Saturday May 4th until Tuesday May 7th, 2013. I booked my room through the La Cuesta Inn website via their "Book 2 nights and get a 3rd night free" offer... in actuality, I paid about $104 per night (taxes included)... which I am happy with for what I received.
The front desk staff was friendly and gave great service. When I checked in on Saturday I at first received a room on the 1st floor -- after seeing the room I asked the check-in agent if there was a room on a higher floor -- he gave me a room on the 3rd floor which I was very happy with.
My room had a king-sized bed and a balcony, the view was not great, but I had fresh air and it was not loud at all.
The hotel itself is a bit older and the furniture in the room looked old (as did the A/C unit, but it worked fine), but everything was clean and in working order and more than satisfactory.
The Big Bonus for me was they had Disney Channel (Yes I'm a kid at heart) -- I actually watched TV during my stay.
The location of La Cuesta Inn is right off of highway 101, which is very convenient... and it is a very short drive (about 5-10 minutes) from the downtown area with all the restaurants and shopping.
It was cold and overcast while I stayed so I didn't use the pool.
I was not very impressed with the free continental breakfast... their coffee machine was out of service and the offerings were very simple: boiled eggs, breakfast cereal, a waffle maker (decent though), muffins, yogurt... but I guess it was satisfactory for anyone on a budget. I opted for breakfast at Big Sky Cafe and Sally Loo's.
Overall, I was satisfied with my trip and would definitely stay here again.
I wasn't impressed with the room I saw on the first floor, but was very happy with the 3rd floor...
