Checked in during their evening social hour for Best Western members. Not a member. No problem as staff will enroll you. Wine snacks and cheese are available. Oh yes, location is just off 101. Good size comfortable room. Very good breakfast selection.

To be honest, I was ready to write a stern review. When I opened the door to my 3rd floor hallway access, the hall carpet was worn and there was an unpleasant smell. However, my room is clean. The carpet does scream 1990's but the room offers some surprising benefits that are disappearing from "normal" hotel rooms: shower cap, shampoo/conditioning/shower...

Pleasant BW hotel. Only stayed overnight, parking and room very good although the person/people smoking weed on our floor made the stay a little less enjoyable on this occasion. Would happily stay again though.

This hotel was a great place to stay at on a drive between LA and SF. Chase at the front desk was really nice and helpful. Rooms were simple and clean and the breakfast was also nice. Would recommend this hotel to anyone passing through SLO.

We loved our stay and the wine reception! Juan at the front desk is a dream! He was knowledgeable and kind. He was helpful and patience with our 10 year old daughter and our Pitbull Tootsie. Thank you for your hospitality!

Our room was clean and of a decent size. Not elegant, but well appointed and servicable. Pets are welcome, and there is a "potty park" onsite, which is also servicable vs fancy, but that my mother-in-law's dog absolutely LOVED. We had both a standard room, and an ADA room for our elderly family member. The ADA shower was perfect for...

This was the first stop on a long road trip. The hotel was clean, close to the highway and very comfortable. Staff was a little grumpy on arrival, but so were we. Room was very clean, very quiet and, even though we were on a lower floor, we heard no one for the whole nite. Recommend it.

The staff is one of the best I have experienced among all my hotels stays. Upon check in, Chase was friendly and very helpful. He greeted us with big smiles and was patient with our quesitons. My kids were also offered crayons and papers to draw at the complimentary breakfast. Will definitely stay at this hotel again.
