Staff at the hotel were very friendly. Fresh cookies are made for guests and one really positive thing is that hot drinks are always available in the lobby and it was really nice to be able to come back in the evening and have a tea or coffee. One member of staff even offered to take me somewhere in her...

I had room 308, across the elevator. Those are usually bad in may hotels because of noise from the elevator beeping or people getting on and off, but this was actually ok. What was not ok was this thunking sound that went on periodically in the middle of the night, which woke me up on both nights I was there....

La Cuesta is fine, but it is not near the downtown area of San Luis Obispo. It has a highway right behind it which won't work well for light sleepers. The pool looked nice although we didn't use it. Also, the continental breakfast isn't the best, but the breakfast room is really nice and bright. Breakfast is included in the...

La Cuesta Inn does a reasonable job if all you want is a clean room with a comfortable bed. They have no fitness facility, the breakfast is 'continental' & their internet is unavailable in a number of the rooms. It can get noisy in 101 which is next to the outdoor pool.

Though this hotel is right next to the highway it is very quiet. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is generous and starts at 6 a.m. The pool and spa are comfortably heated. Great restaurants just a quick walk down the street.

I only stay in Conrad Hiltons, Four Seasons, or Ritz-Carltons. She convinced me to go one time and it was fantastic. We stayed 3 times in the last 3 months. The...

Located very close to SLO Performing Arts Center which was very convenient. Room was clean and appointments were ok. Check in was a bit strange, no towels @ pool / Jacuzzi area, lots of traffic noise from HWY 101.

The front desk staff was kind and helpful. The property has a contemporary decor and my room was large and airy. I loved having a balcony with seating.
