4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Nice accomodations and staff. Older hotel with updates. Nice courtyard around pool and rooms have balconies. Breakfast with waffles, breakfast sandwiches, juice, fruit, yogurt, cereal, toast and coffee. Nice touch with late afternoon cheese, crackers and local wine and beer in lobby.

This was our first time staying in San Luis Obispo. We picked this Best Western because it allowed us to bring our pet. Not only were the staff very friendly ( offered wine and appetizers at 5:00) and helpful but the hotel itself has a small enclosed space for the pets to do their thing. But the best thing of all is the park next door. There is an off leash dog park walking distance from the hotel. Awesome.

I had such a great experience at the Best Western Beachside Inn located in Santa Barbara California that I changed my reservation for the following evening in San Luis Obispo. I am very happy with my decision to change my reservation to the Best Western in San Luis Obispo. They have an amazing friendly and helpful staff, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Because of my positive experience I will be sure to make Best Western my top choice when booking a hotel for business and pleasure.

We enjoyed our stay there. Room was clean, spacey and comfortable.

The staff was with one exception very friendly and helpful!!

The few downsides: the key system and the internet did not work as should be expected!

Breakfast is not bad - but if you have to share an 30 people area with over 200 guest, then you prefer to escape to Starbucks over the road (150m)

The balcony light stays on all night! If you prefer fresh air vs AC then you have to deal with the bright light on the balcony that can ot be controlled by the guest. So either loud AC or bright room!

Over all a pleasant stay -just an effort away from excellence!

I stayed at the Royal Oak over fourth of July weekend and although the hotel was completely full, it was very quiet and peaceful. The "dog" section is secluded from the rest of the hotel and I never even saw the pool. I didnt care for the way it was set up, but if you don't want to run tin to any people while you are there, then this is the place for you. It's right across the street from a large shopping center with lot's of places to eat and there is an IHOP right next door. The area is nice and clean and felt safe. They have a small area for dogs to go potty that is just dirt it's fenced in and has bags for pick up. It wasn't fancy but met all my needs. I actually like the Best Western Plus in Arroyo Grande better, it's very cool.

Stayed wonderful room with our dog, even provided an extra sheet for us and our pet....friendly staff....didn't give it a top rating because the breakfast area was a mad house. Poorly set up counter where everyone was crowded together and it was hard to get the food and breakfast selection wasn't that good.

This hotel is clean and neat and I am picky about the cleanliness of hotel rooms. Obviously, this is not a 5 star hotel but it is more than decent. Upper floors have a balcony with chairs to sit and relax outside. This balcony perk is nice because it opens the room up more. Nice stop-over hotel. It is close to shopping and restaurants.

Room Tip: You may want to ask for a room towards the back if the noise of the street is going to disturb your...
