“Good choice @ San Luis Obispo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

I ususally spend one or 2 nights in Santa Barbara when going from San Diego to San Francisco and vice-versa. And used to stop for lunch at San Luis Obispo. This year, I decided to spend a night in San Luis Obispo. Looked for a hotel and chose La Cuesta Inn. No regrets. Will easilly go back there. Nice room. Quiet. Well located hotel. Not far from down town Higuera Street where the restaurants, bars and shops are.
They have got every thing I need: Cable TV, free parking and room Wi Fi, air conditioning, good beds. It is clean and quiet.
Breakfast is continental. Simples but enough.

Room Tip: If you came back to the hotel very late at night, you might have trouble parking ... In this case yo...

Would recommend this place after staying her with our family (2a 2c). Great location - easy to find with our rental car. The hotel was wonderful - a great little breakfast offering, and the kids loved the swimming pool (the best in our 4 weeks of travel according to them). Nice clean spa, rooms and hotel. Good sized room and clean. Friendly, helpful service at front desk. Thanks

Great motel with many amenities - great beds, lovely pillows, and comfy comforter, a must have. Located right across the road from the famous Apple Farm Restaurant. The staff was delightful from the beginning of check-in to check-out. Clean, comfortable, with everything you could possibly need right there tucked away in special locations of the room. Liked the bathroom set-up, didn't have to wake anyone up to get ready for the day and especially enjoyed the convenience of an additional separate sink and mirror. Extra room to lay out all your toiletries. The set up of the room made it easy for one person to get ready while the other person slept.
Quaint, nice cozy room with balcony, would highly recommend this pleasurable motel.

Room Tip: Excellent location directly across the street from the famous Apple Farm Restaurant.

I stayed here on a business trip and was surprised how comfortable the room was. Check in was super easy and the girl at the front desk was really nice. The bed is amazingly comfortable, I wanted to steal one of the down pillows. I didn't try the breakfast but I heard it was good. Close by are Pappy Mcgreggors which has great bloody Mary's and Splash Cafe has world famous clam chowder. I loved that the bathroom amenities were coconut lime verbena from Bath and Body Works and there was a rubber ducky in the bathtub. I highly recommend this hotel for an inexpensive, comfortable night's sleep.

Pretty much one of the most painless stays I've had. Check in was a breeze thanks to friendly, efficient staff. The room was exceedingly clean. We were the only ones in the spa and the bubbles were so quiet, we knew we wouldn't disturb other guests and relaxed til closing. My son loved making his own waffles and the breakfast spread exceeded our expectations and allowed us to get back on the road quickly. We'll definitely be back.

This is our 8th hotel on our USA roadtrip. We are now in San Luis Obispo at the La Cuesta Inn. Check in was ok but we didn't fancy a room right next to the pool so asked to be moved. This was done but seemed to be done begrudgingly by the receptionist. The rooms are ok, pretty big but with no safe and only mediocre safe facilities behind reception "put it in an envelope and I will drop it in our safe" is what we were told. We asked who had access to the safe and got a non-committal response. This was disappointing so we left our valuables in a locked case in our room which wasn't ideal. We went out for food and when we returned approx. 22.00 the car park was full and when we asked if we could use one of the disabled spaces were told that we would probably be clamped. Breakfast was ok but to be honest we were happy to leave and felt it was one of the poorer hotels we had used on any of our roadtrips.

We found this hotel through TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. The building has an elevator, our room was relatively large and comfortable, staff was helpful, the price was reasonable, and the breakfast included in the rate was a cut above the typical continental breakfast offered by similar hotels. We did not utilize the room's refrigerator or microwave for our quick overnight stay, but it would have been a plus for a longer visit. The hotel's location is excellent, a short distance off the highway, and an easy walking distance (about a mile) to the mission and the vibrant downtown area. Try Novo for dinner - truly excellent.
