Very Nice staff and facility. Rooms are very big with Fridge and Micro, WiFI. Everything most would need to have a nice stay. The Breakfast had a huge variety and the attendants very friendly. Its the place to stay in SLO! Easy Off US 101 to get anywhere you want to go.

Coffee makers, frig and microwave in the rooms. Four night stay, after the second night management moved us because of crazy woman up all night in the room next door. Third and fourth night we...

Not a bad place to stay, built on an incline, no luggage dollies. Close to shopping, restaurants, and activities. Has pet area adjacent to parking lot. There is a large off leash dog park less than a quarter mile away.

We recently visited the SLO area and stayed at the Best Western Plus. The room was very clean, plenty of free parking. Near shops and some franchise restaurants, and the clerks at the check in desk were very friendly and helpful. Free breakfast was included, although we didn't have any, I did go and look at what was offered. Basic...

My husband and I decided to take the Hwy 1 drive up to San Fran- and this was one of our stops. With breakfast included (and a good bit of it)- this ended up being a great spot. We really liked this city anyway. Our room would be the only change- it was an exterior entrance room- which makes me...

The rooms and hotel interior were quite dated. The service and welcoming was poor at breakfast and we suspect the fruit juices were too old and tasted odd. Value for money cannot be consider good. The location is good with many resturants near-by.

Best quality for the price. Close to restaurants and San Luis Obispo. Clean rooms and friendly service. Tasty breakfast. If you want to be close to Cal Poly Campus just try this hotel. You will not regret doing it.

Checked in during their evening social hour for Best Western members. Not a member. No problem as staff will enroll you. Wine snacks and cheese are available. Oh yes, location is just off 101. Good size comfortable room. Very good breakfast selection.

To be honest, I was ready to write a stern review. When I opened the door to my 3rd floor hallway access, the hall carpet was worn and there was an unpleasant smell. However, my room is clean. The carpet does scream 1990's but the room offers some surprising benefits that are disappearing from "normal" hotel rooms: shower cap, shampoo/conditioning/shower...
