This is the first time I have been motivated to write a review. My stay here was great. From moment I arrived, the friendly, helpful staff made me welcome. The room was very clean, comfortable with little touches I appreciate like - FREE Wifi - I can't believe the bigger, much more expensive hotels charge extra for this -, make-up remover towelette, a rubber ducky at teh tub, a mini fridge with room in it (not packed with overpriced minibar items), wonderful linens and towels, decent continental breakfast (again clean and maintained) and recently remodeled rooms. I would stay here again and recommend it to my friends traveling. For the price, the room was much better than I expected.

We were on a tour and only had one night at La Cuesta, we wish we could have stayed longer. Our room was clean and comfortable with THE biggest bed ever!! The staff were friendly and polite which made our stay even better.

It appears to be an older hotel however it must have been renovated. It appears nice from the outside. The employees are friendly and attractive. Rooms appear a bit older, however very clean and very comfortable beds. The price is affordable and reasonable comparably speaking to others in the same area. As far as I am concerned it was walking distance from downtown even though about 10 blocks. It is at the end of Monterey street so very little traffic and seemed quiet. The breakfast included was a plus. Would recommend to others.

I had stayed here years ago when traveling for business - it has only gotten better! If you can get a room here, stay here! You'll be very happy you did! Also, go across the street to the Apple Farm Restaurant and have a bite to eat - you won't be disappointed.

I stayed here for one night, wish it was more the room was so clean and the bed was fantastic.My room overlooked the front of hotel and had a balcony so no problem with traffic noise. Case was taken to room and collected the following morning. If you are looking for a drink and something to eat try the Irish Pub down the road.

We traveled down the coast for a get away and figured a stop over in San Luis Obispo would be our "roughing it" night by looking for an inexpensive hotel. This place was a pleasant surprise for the money. The King room was big, all the amenities, glass not plastic, good bed, up to date TV, granite counters, refrigerator and everything else my wife and I are used to paying more for. I don't usually read many of the 5 star ratings because I want to know what is wrong with a place but I have no choice but to rate this place as great for the price.

I stayed here with a friend for one night in July and would definitely return. Although the hotel is next to the freeway, we did not hear the noise from our room, which was on the opposite side of the hotel. The room was clean and spacious and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was included in the rate, which was a good value. It included make-your-own waffles, cereal, muffins, etc. A converted hotel room is used as a dining room and offers a fair amount of seating.

The hotel was within walking distance of restaurants and a 15-20 minute walk into downtown where there is a great farmer's market on Thursday nights. A trolly runs to downtown seasonally and stops less than a block from the hotel. This was very convenient after a long day wandering downtown and the farmer's market.
