Decent Hotel @ the Beach of SLO

Pros: I liked the small patio attached to my room. The front desk clerks were all young, yet very helpful, except when it comes to CARING FOR GUESTS.
Cons: There is not a lot of parking, so I didn't know I had a curfew. apparently, the earlier your evening the more likely you will score a parking place.
Location: There is a great place across the street called Apple Farms, I believe. They make fresh pies.
When I checked in they asked if I had made (2) room reservations and I, of course, said "No". Then I asked "Why? Do you have me down for 2 reservations?" They said "yes". I said "well I didn't make 2 reservations, what does that mean?". "Did I make an honest mistake and accidently hit the cursor twice?" " And if I did, don't you think that Travelocity would have told me?" Needless to say, I got charged an extra night because I didn't cancel the reservation. Which ticked me off. Okay, I'm over that. I was in San Luis Obispo for a wedding so on Saturday I left early to help with setting up the wedding. I made a couple of trips. On the 2nd trip I went to the hotel to get my dress and to finish getting ready. My room was open! The door! So I went to the front desk & told them and asked what are they going to do for me? The hotel would have been liable if anything was missing since house keeping had been the last ones in my room! I told them I wanted that extra 1 room charge taken off my bill. They said they would check. Come Sunday, I check out and I received my printout of my charges and I didn't see the extra room charge on my bill. So I thought it got handled. I am a single woman traveling alone & when you see your room open & you know it wasn't you, its kind of scary. I just checked my credit card bill and the extra room charge is on the statement! Now, I don't know what to do! All of my possessions could have been stolen, I could have been attacked, etc. I am a guest!!

Pros: Ease of access from the highway
Cons: More gracious, helpful attitude from the front desk clerk
It was just one night in transit, so I did not try to use the amenities, but it was a pleasant and comfortable stay.

Nice newly redone

Pros: Room space and furnishings
Cons: Breakfast and small area cramped
Location: Beaches close by , good restaurant across the street , easy access to freeway. Pismo Beach 15 minutes away , downtown SLO minutes away.
Much upgrade redecorating and rooms were large . Also quieter despite being near freeway. Breakfast was adequate , space crowded. Staff super friendly and great coffee always there.

Great Staff and Affordable

Passing through San Luis Obispo and found La Cuesta Inn from the Chamber of Commerce. Really enjoyed ourselves. The staff was very knowlegable of the area and seem to be proud to be local. Thursday night Farmers Market are a must - lots of live music and BBQ. Catch the trolley for 25 cents. Breakast was great for being free, includes waffles and seems like there was something for everybody. Me and my girlfriend wanted a cheap, clean place to sleep and we found it al La Cuesta!
