All hotels in SLO are expensive and La Cuesta Inn was no different. We stayed in an ADA room which was very well set up for handicapped visitors. The dining area for the continental (aka, no eggs, bacon, etc.) was much too small. The guests were crammed into a tiny room behind the front desk.

The room was very nice and the staff we interacted with were exceptionally friendly and helpful -- for one thing, telling us about the trolley outside the door of the hotel that goes down the street to the main shopping area for the Thursday night market. The breakfast was not fancy but had a variety of breakfast foods including make-your-own...

A favorite hotel that we have visited in the past. A boutique hotel where "It's the little things that count". A beautiful location. Pay a little more and get a deluxe room with balcony in front of the building on floors 3 or 4 with views of the mountains. A simple breakfast and great staff.

Stayed here for 2 days with work. Comfortable rooms. 20 minute walk to downtown. No laundry facility. Breakfast was simple. I stayed in a king room on the 2nd and 3rd floors. One was street side. Both were quiet. My coworker stayed on the first floor and could hear pipes clanking in the early morning. The staff was extremely helpful...

We have stayed here with a group of four. First impression was great as we were welcomed at reception in a very friendly way. A bit of small talk always helps to create a positive atmosphere. Rooms are new and the beds including the linnen contributed to a good night of sleep.The nearby highway did not provide any unacceptable noice...

This hotel is newly renovated. Rooms are spacious and clean. Plentiful continental breakfast is provided. Pool is perfect for a quick swim or dip. Cookies provided at check in. Staff was super helpful and kind. Would definitely recommend and return. Can walk the easy mile to downtown if needed but a trolley is also an option.

This hotel needs some updated photos. We almost didn't stay here because although this hotel kept coming up on a search of customer reviewed hotels rated over 4 in the San Luis Obispo area, the photos were dark and unattractive. Due to the customer rating, and the fact that we were already in the San Luis Obispo area, we decided...
