I enjoyed my stay at this hotel and I would stay again. I stayed on the 3rd floor and the room had two queen beds with nice pillows and confortable mattresses. Water pressure was okay and the toiletries were good. My only concern with this room was that the air conditioner didn't put out enough cool air. Luckily I had brought a small desktop fan and that helped circulate the air.

The continental breakfast was okay but it would have been nice to have something like hot eggs or some meat product. The waffle maker made beautiful small waffles.

The pool and spa looked lovely but I never had time to use either since I drove to the ocean each night as it was only 15-20 minutes away.

Room Tip: The 3rd floor seemed nice and quiet during my stay. I did notice that some rooms had balconies and t...

I go to SLO every 5 weeks or so to see my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. Every time I am greeted with hospitality and great service. Jacob has given me exceptional customer service and so have the other front desk people. I have been upgraded to a better room when available. They have renovated the breakfast area and upgraded the lobby. I feel safe and the room is clean, comfortable, and furnishings are nice too. I stay here EVERY TIME I visit.

Room Tip: I always like to be on the upper floors but every room is quiet.

My husband and I certainly enjoyed our stay at La Cuesta Inn. The staff was very friendly and we felt welcomed from the moment we checked in. Our room was clean and neat. We had a restful sleep and an overall great experience.

If we ever go back to San Luis Obispo i would most definitely stay at La Cuesta Inn again!
I just wish there would be other city locations of this hotel!

The bed was very comfortable and the hot tub and pool makes it ice to.dip in after check in and before dinner.
It is at the end of town so it is quiet but still close to a few restaurants.
While we were there th hotel lobby was going through minor renovations so we got my breakfast in our room, which was nice. We sat in the balcony overlooking the mountains.

I've been coming to La Cuesta Inn for about 5 years now. Mostly for pleasure, but occasional business. I really like the renovations, very warm and welcoming. What keeps me coming back though is the service. In particular, Jacob is fantastic. Always friendly and helpful, yet professional. Nice touch to be greeted by name after a 4 hour drive! Great breakfast, love the cookies and tea in the afternoon. As a frequent guest, it would be nice to see some sort of "points" program. Looking forward to being back Memorial Day weekend!

We were not informed about the Renovations when we booked so we were greeted by a lobby that was out of order and smelling very strongly of paint. The toilet in our room blocked very easily and as it was late at night we needed a change of room. The staff arranged this immediately without any problem which we appreciated. However the message about our change of room was not communicated to the providers of breakfast ( delivered to our room because the lobby was out of order) so that arrived half an hour late , nor apparently to the team that cleaned the room, as that was not cleaned. For our second morning the lobby was back in action . The breakfast was simple but ok.

Stayed here for a night for a cal poly event. Wanted 2 queens, but they only had a "suite" when we got around to a reservation. So, we got the "suite", and it was a king bed with a pullout coach.

The bed was great. And, the pullout couch was actually not bad at all. It was a brand new unit, and you could barely feel the metal through the mattress. Pullouts are notoriously bad, so make sure you check it when you first get to the room.

There was a nice little balcony in our room, and that was a nice view of the hills.

The lobby had some construction going on (and they did tell us about it before). Makes things kind of ugly, but that's the way it goes. There wasn't any "hot" food for breakfast like some of the other spots there, so that's a minus. They had the standard bagels, toast, cereal, etc. But, no scrambled eggs or waffles. They had hard boiled eggs out. Yuk.

Pool was fine. We had the hot tub to ourselves for a couple of hours. As usual, we had to ask for towels, but they were there lickidy split.

Parking was quite easy at all times.

Solid place to eat down the street at Pappy McGregors.
