Overnight family trip to explore Cal Poly SLO

Our family has made several trips to SLO over the last few months. Daughter is looking at attending Cal Poly SLO. So far of the 4 hotels we've stayed at, this Best Western is the best for the value. The location is ideal, staff is very friendly and courteous, and the rooms are clean and modern. Seems like the hotel was renovated recently, has a modern feel and I appreciate that. The hot breakfast is also another extra perk.

Clean, Comfortable Room with good location

This is the second time I have been here. This is not a 4-5 star hotel but it is clean, comfortable, affordable and one can walk to downtown. I also enjoy the free breakfast.

overpriced

The hotel was fine. That's all, just fine. I really think paying over $200 a night, after taxes, is too much for a very basic, fairly old hotel.

I stayed at better 3 stars hotels.

Room okay but I've stayed at better 3 star hotels then this one. It's old but they have done some fixing up. Pillows were to spongy.

Great place to stay in San Luis Obispo

We stopped for an overnighter in SLO on our way from Los Angeles to Santa Cruz. Hotel clerk Taz was very friendly and helpful - even pointing us in the direction of a few good vegetarian restaurants within walking distance. The motel is easy to get to from the 101, very close to downtown, and the rooms are nice and clean. Parking was easy, both check-in and check-out were quick, we enjoyed the free breakfast - it was a good stay. The price was a bit more than I'd like to pay for this type of motel, but it was as reasonably-priced as anything else in the area.

Great value!

Although it's about a mile walk to get downtown, this hotel was perfect for the price. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, and the view of the mountains nearby was beautiful!
