This hotel was the best of our stay so far. Very friendly staff and a great room made it great. The free DVD rental was a novel Plus. The breakfast was pretty good too. In all, we hope to have the chance to stay here again.

This hotel is beautiful, clean and quiet. The beds are comfortable. The staff is very helpful. It would be a five star review but the breakfast could be picked up at a local convenience store i.e. Instant oatmeal, fruit, toast, microwaveable in the package sausage, egg & cheese biscuits etc.

This is what you'd expect from an average hotel. There is nothing spectacular about it and nothing horrible either. The rooms are a good size and clean, the bed comfortable and the staff friendly. Be aware, that there is Hwy 101 on either side of the the property so chances you aren't going to hear freeway noise is slim to...

Wow! My wife and I have stayed here before, but it's like they keep getting better and better. I got my requested room (close to freeway has best view and you can't hear traffic at all) and couldn't have been happier! Ian checked us in quickly and easily and later called us in our room to make sure everything was...

Hotel features its lobby in its marketing. Rooms are not remotely as appealing. Our room was tired and worn, a step above a midrange chain. The owners are not putting revenue back into maintaining the property. It's should start with a dedicated honest inspection of their rooms. Breakfast was minimal at best and eating area cramped. Bathroom worn out, some...

Our family of 4 stayed 2 nights at La Cuesta while touring Cal Poly. While SLO appears to be a town of motels, and this one appeared to be one of the most updated, it still wasn't quite up to par. It's right on the highway, so you get that noise, plus our room was right outside the ice machine...

This hotel was such a nice surprise. Clean, comfy, close to everything. Nice little touches, like coffee all day and cookies in the afternoon. We had a nice balcony. It's close to the freeway but you can't hear it at all. The breakfast had a wide variety: breakfast sandwiches, eggs, fruit cups, yogurt, make your own waffles, fresh fruit --...

The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating for our early check-in. We were able to park our car in the hotel after we checked out which was helpful since there was very limited parking during the open house weekend. Close to Cal Poly campus. It is walking distance but uphill to the campus. Very Comfortable king size bed. Large bathroom.

Spent three nights at La Cuesta to visit Cal Poly. I have no idea why this hotel has only 2.5 stars. The rooms are clean and safe and the free breakfast is as good as any mid-priced hotel. We did have to rent a car as we flew into Santa Barbara, but parking was free. Cal Poly is a beautiful...

Had a lovely four night stay at La Cuesta Inn. . We selected the Inn because they sponsor the Cuesta Basketball team and its good they support the local community. What a lovely stay we had.

“Ask for a room at the front as the ones at the rear are facing the freeway and so are noisy.”

“Rooms away from the elevator (ice machines there are noisy) and on the south end of the hotel facing Monterey Street -might be quieter.”
