“Pleasant bargain”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

Nice inexpensive clean hotel in SLO close to downtown and restaurants. My only complaint was that the hairdryer didn't work despite pressing the reset button as instructed. There were no spares.

I went to stay at Best Western in San Luis Obispo...I stayed for 3 nights in this hotel...The whole stay was perfect....Check in was quick and easy and stay was quiet....Total atmosphere was peaceful....The free continental breakfast was also a plus! I highly recommend this place to everyone!

Recently my family & I stayed here. Very clean room, pristine sheets & covers, amenities are awesome! Fridge/microwave/coffeepot/hairdryer. Really liked soap, shampoo & conditioner pumps on shower wall. Hot tub was so soothing! Breakfast had great variety & options...eggs, sausage, toast, muffins, hot waffles you can make, yummy yogurt, fresh fruit, variety of drinks as well. Internet access in room as well as computer in hotel lobby. Very quiet location for a family. Very close to Cal Poly, downtown SLO and some excellent eateries. Beach was not far away and neither were the hills for hiking. Great place to bring your family!!

Room Tip: 1st floor rooms had nice, comfy double beds...close to vending machines & pool/hot tub/lobby.

Checked in on a Friday Night with Steven very late. Loved how there was still someone there when we arrived since it was after 1am. No, matter the time he still had a sence of humor.
The next morning we went in the breakfast room where we were greeted with Mertha cooking all the good breakfast we had there. She was always stocking the eggs and milk and etc. There was not one moment that anything was empty. On this trip most of the hotels waited until everything was gone before brining out more. Nicole the front desk manager got right onto our room when we told her we were done with breakfast was going to go take a walk and come back to take a nap before my brothers and sister-in-law to be wedding shower. She called the housekeeper right away to clean it.
When we came back after 15 minutes don't hold me to the name but Aliceanna was coming out of our room done cleaning it. The only thing that offended my wife was that she did not take the tip that was on the desk for her. The room both days were clean, loved the desk in the room for the lap top. The only thing I would say is not to the staff but, to the SLO Lodging that owns it NEW FLAT SCREEN LARGER TELEVISIONS, and UPKEEP OUTSIDE. (IE. plants, color) Your staff is wonderful. Maybe like a evenlope the maids leave in the room with their name on it so we can leave tip in there for them so they might take it then) Everyone needs a few bucks here and there.
When we got back from the shower at 8pm we wanted to go downtown went and spoke with Steven again and he gave us directions and got the taxi there to pick us up and take us downtown. (read my comments for some of the bars down there)
When we got back we saw that they left a note on the office door about the time change which was wonderful cause we forgot about it. The next morning we got up and we were going to go try the Apple Farm in for breakfast cause everyone told us about it but, it was not that great either(read comments on that). Went back to the motel cause we already checked out at 845am with a new person forgot her name (two tone color hair blonde and black) Seemed new. We went back and asked if we can get breakfast there cause of our experience at Apple Farm she said she did not mind since we already paid to stay at the hotel with them we could get what we needed. We loved that. Oh did I tell you Martha was in there again doing a great job. But, for all we know when we have to come back to see my brother again we will be staying here from now on. Thank you to the STAFF AT BEST WESTERN SOMERSET! See you all again!

We stayed her on February 17th for the weekend again. Well, this time spoke with Steven at check-in and always has different jokes for us. Loved it. Also this was the weekend that there were alot of high school kids there. Steven and Nicole did everything to keep them quite but, I do not know how they can be on a goooooooooooooo 24/7. They are a great couple and hospitality. They changed their breakfast in the last month that we were there. Now they have sausage and eggs, yogurt. That was the thing I was shocked they did not have the first time i was there even the regular Best Western have it. But like I said before I will be back. Nicole thank you and see you on March trip thanks for my great rate.
