“Secret and Lovely surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2004

We went to San Luis Obispo as it was an approx 6 hour drive for us from the Desert in CA , it was a good place to stop for the night on our way to BIG SUR and San Francisco. BOY what a delight it was to see a clean hotel room at the Best Western Somerset, within walking distance to about 3 restaurants. We checked out all three but choose one called the Apple Farm. FANTASTIC FOOD and hospitality. Unbelievable quality and service, The gift shop is also so quaint and country, there is also an Inn where you can stay the night but we had booked the Best Western as it was within our budget. Next time we go we will definitely stay at the Apple Farm and Eat there for all meals, Then we saw that this place was on the cover of the magazine of the Conneisurs guide to the Best places to stay in the world. I would go back in a Heartbeat but we live on the East Coast so maybe we will plan a trip back in the future and stay longer than 1 night next time. BIG sur was also worth the drive and the Waterfall at Julia Pfiffer State Park was the Best stop in Big sur and we saw Elephant seals on the Beach at one of the First Vista stops at the Big Sur. Have a GREAT Trip to all.

This hotel is a great deal! My best friend and I recently embarked on a last minute road trip up the Central Coast, and our first stop was San Luis Obispo. We literally booked the hotel two days before our stay...
The lodging is located along a strip of hotels. It's been renovated recently - everything was so nice and clean. Don't expect the Four Seasons, but I can honestly say that from staying at so many timeshares and 5-star hotels, this place was comfortable and excellent for the price! Oh, and try their complimentary breakfast, the food was filling, and the folks at the Monterey Street Cafe were friendly and the service was great...

The Best Western Somerset offers reasonably-priced rooms in a location that is both conveniently close to the freeway (a bonus for weary travelers), and to the city's charming downtown area, loaded with interesting shops and eating places. The free breakfasts offered to guests in the adjacent coffee shop have also been a hit with our family. The food and service is good, and is an added benefit to those who prefer an early start back on the highway. Within walking distance (just a few driveways over), guests can also browse the Apple Farm Inn's giftshop and bakery. As someone who has stayed several times, I'd feel comfortable recommending The Best Western to anyone looking for clean, reasonable rooms with helpful, family-friendly amenities.
