We stayed at the Royal Oak for 4 nights and were in SLO for a family wedding. I cannot say enough about our accommodations--Cleanliness was excellent) I am an RN, so this is important) and the staff really goes out of their way to be helpful. My family is already planning a Fall return to see the leaves change color...

Clean, tidy and refreshingly welcoming. bit tired overall but perfectly adequate & good value for the money. Easy access off freeway. Friendly & accommodating staff. Fridge in room & twin queen beds comfortable. Large pool looked appealing.

Slightly old-fashioned, traditionally furnished room that had a rather musty smell. The room was, though, large, clean, comfortable and well -equipped. The hotel is on the outskirts of the town but there is a range of chain restaurants nearby along with a supermarket. There is a decent, small fitness centre and a reasonable, at best, breakfast available in a small,...

The is a great location. The rooms are very nice, and the decor and furniture is very nice. I would definitely recommend this hotel. It is located right across from a great shopping center with good restaurants, stores, and a good grocery store. The freeway, is just a block away.

The check-in staff is helpful, the location is convenient. The staff ultimately resolved the problems we had. The room was VERY noisy, due to creaky floorboards. Guests above us checked-in at 2:30 am and kept us awake. The staff refunded our room cost.

Easy to find off the 101 and a really kind, friendly, helpful team. The swimming pool area is large and the pool is pretty good for a hotel - the hot tub is definitely an asset - hot and with killer jets to soften up your muscles after a day on the road. Don't choose it for the views, but...

I stayed for two nights while my son attended his college freshman orientation in SLO. The staff was friendly, helpful and professional. I had originally booked one night and later decided to stay two so I ended up in two different rooms. The staff did try to work it out so that i could stay in the same room but...

What a wonderful team at the Best Western SLO. We had some issues around our booking prior to arrival which they went out of their way to solve and when we arrived they were really helpful in recommending a pharmacy to pick up some medicine for my bad cold. The rooms were clean and spacious and the hotel was located...

Wonderfully quiet location when visiting SLO for business or pleasure. Within walking distance of a variety of restaurants and shopping. Easy drive to downtown SLO and Cal Poly. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Pool and hot tub well-maintained. Staff is especially helpful.

No real complaints about the hotel. Had free standard hotel breakfast. Did surprise us with an evening reception (free drinks and light refreshments). It was real nice, not sure is only done weeknights. Hotel was clean, pretty quiet. Did have a nice outdoor pool area but we did not use it as we were there for just one night. I...
