This place was very accommodating! The price was great and the all the little extra's they do to make you happy was nice. I had a nice room and the pool and hot tub were great. Its right across the street from the Apple Farm so it easy to get a great meal there and although its a walk to get to town it doable or you can take the trolly. All around great place for the price!

The staff at the front desk were more than helpful and always in a positive mood. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. The only noise you can hear is when the water is running in another room. Not bad. Booked 2 more dates through the summer. Discounts for Cal Poly Students.

We stayed here for one night on our way up to San Francisco. It's conveniently located off the freeway so the next day all we had to do was hop straight back on. It is also located very close to down town San Luis obispo.
The room was small and the bathroom was cramped. Everything was clean and the complimentary tea and coffee went down well.
I would not stay here for very long it is good as a stop over on a trip as the rooms are very tiny for families.
The customer service was excellent.

We are happy that you had a pleasant stay overall, and we are ecstatic to hear that you found our staff to be helpful. We hope that you'll give us another try some time while passing through!

Stayed here last weekend Cal Poly Alumni weekend. Booked way in advance and got a great deal. Most hotels in the area were going for $199 and up. We were able to get the La Cuesta for $139/ night.

We checked in early without a single problem. The room was nice and clean and had a comfy bed. The continental breakfast was not too bad. The room they had for you to dine is was pretty small.

Nice staff, good value, a nice little walk to downtown and freeway close.

I would recommend it

Room Tip: Try to get a room not facing the freeway

Searching for one night's accommodation on a Saturday night in the SLO area in July is quite difficult, with many establishments requiring a two night stay minimum. We also wanted to be near friends staying in a property across the road so La Cuesta fitted the bill. We booked in June and paid in advance online after reading a number of good reviews.

The room was clean, comfortable and adequately equipped with a small balcony overlooking the parking lot but was also fairly close to the busy freeway which resulted in some traffic noise. As we were only staying one night, it was late, we were heading out to meet friends for dinner and in light of the overbooking referred to earlier by the front desk on check-in we decided to stay put rather than asking to change rooms.

Breakfast the next morning was continental, with the option to make your own waffles, nicely presented and frequently refilled in the attractive reception area and quite adequate, taken in a room adjoining reception with a tv. We didn't avail ourselves of the DVD collection, or the small pool as we needed to get on the road but it looked clean and inviting in the early morning sunshine.

The staff were friendly and polite and our family would be happy to stay here again but in a room on the other side of the building from the freeway.

This hotel is quaint and cozy to stay in! There is a continental breakfast, which you can never go wrong with that. There are a ton of amazing movies to check out for free. Our room also had a balcony, and not many hotels have those any more. The location is incredibly close to downtown. Everything was clean and roomy as well. The staff is also incredibly friendly. I have a specific shout out to a staff member, Tyler Byars, who went above and beyond to make our stay extra comfortable. His hospitality and kindness made me love the hotel even more. I'm not one to ever write reviews but I feel that writing one for this hotel was necessary. We go to many upon many of hotels in this area and this has been by far one of the best. I recommend staying here. Anyone who complains is wrong.

We thought the room was clean and the beds comfortable. The AC worked just fine (see other review) and as a matter of fact, was really cold as my son froze us out! They have DVD's to "rent" for free - much better than buying a movie off the TV - so bring your own movie if you wish. They do have many to choose from although none are really current but there's a variety of titles. Will go there again. Easy access to the highway and to CalPoly and downtown SLO.
