I recently stayed here with friends of mine. The staff is very friendly and i had no problems with anything downstairs. The pool and jacuzzi were great, though the pool was a little chilly due to the cool weather. It was me and my friend in a room on the 4th floor and i did not care for the construction... More

This was our second trip to this particular Best Western Royal Oak hotel. It is comfortable and low-key, and near lots of wineries and beaches. Check-in is always easy, and we particularly like the electric vehicle charging station and we able to park there for 4 nights -- a great extra value. Breakfast is good and the afternoon / early...

The hotel is quite large and there was no elevator, we needed to drag our luggage for a long time. However the room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Wifi worked just fine. Breakfast was a bit sad in an adjacent building to the hotel.

Clean reasonable size room, comfy beds, No Safe in the room, Noisy AC unit, very loud alarm clock (it wakes you up) all with a balcony onto a car park which is a waste IMHO! Complimentary breakfast was free and cheerful, shops across the road offer more choices for eating, its a quiet area and good for an overnight stay... More

I'm not generally picky about hotels -- a clean hotel room in a decent and safe area and I'm okay. When traveling with my family, I prefer Best Western "Plus" properties because of the amenities, etc. This was nothing more than a motel -- and an older, run-down one at that. I've been a longtime BW guest but won't stay... More

For a reasonable price, this hotel offers high level services. There is a swimming pool and a bathtub in every room, that are spacious. Only negative aspect: the breakfast is Served on disposable cutlery only. Bad for the environment. Located close to the highway and less than 2 miles from downtown.

We stayed for the night after driving for hours. The guy at the front desk was SUPER nice and helpful. Free parking. The room was clean and very comfortable with tv and air conditioner. Breakfast was included and was very decent. Overall a very nice hotel and would stay here again.

Great, Best Best Western we have stayed at. Every thing we wanted was close by. Had fun at the farmers market. Great food. Shopped for fruit and vegetables. Nice shopping mall across the street and restaurant next door.

Had a nice, convenient stay for the family of four. Decent enough breakfast, too, with waffles, cereal, and packaged oatmeal. Essentially, we at and slept here, and would do it again, esp. if we were visiting Cal Poly.
