We stayed at La Cuesta last week, great hotel, very nice, clean room, excellent customer service from all of the hotel staff. Conveniently located if you have a student in Cal Poly, The nearest SLO Trolley stop just down the street. A nice complimentary breakfast is included.

The room was great, quiet, well furnished. It is very close to downtown SLO so you are close to restaurants and shopping. Close to beaches and freeway. Thanks to Ian who took care of our needs. I recommend this hotel!

Me and my husband stayed here for two nights during Veterans Day weekend. The front desk employees were extremely polite. They conveniently had free toiletries that we had forgotten at home. Their spa out back was relaxing. We had a clean, modern room. The only issue were thin walls and hearing the elevator ding loudly from the hallway.
