Got a great corner room facing east - which meant that I could enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning with the sun peaking over the hills. Have been trying to find a decent hotel in SLO, within a reasonable walk to downtown and a decent price - and I think La Cuesta Inn is it. For just a...

We have been traveling around a while on the westcoast now and unfortunately this hotel wasn't in line with our expectations compared to other hotels in the same price range. The rooms really needs a renovation and avoid the rooms fronting the main street where you will hear traffic. Coffee was a strange experience (can't stand these scented coffees) and...

I stayed in a standard room with two queen beds. The beds were amazingly comfortable, and we spent a quiet, well-rested night at the hotel. The bathroom was a bit cramped, and it would have better with a pocket door instead of the inward swinging door that was always in the way. The hotel offers tea, coffee, hot chocolate and...

This fabulously quirky hotel was one of ten in which I stayed during my 16-day trip of Arizona, Nevada and California. The interior is decorated beautifully and has a somewhat Mexican feel. My room was more a suite. There was an open fireplace and above it was a large wall-mounted TV. There was a sofa, chairs, table, microwave, fridge and...

Friendly staff, warm atmosphere, quiet room. An added plus is that they have complementary coffee and tea and current dvds. They have a lengthy complementary breakfast 6 pm - 10 pm. Great location as well, within 1 mile of the college campus and fairly close to the Mission. A few negative points is that they don't have an exercise room...
