Stayed here for 1 night whilst on a tour of the West Coast of USA. It's between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The hotel itself is outside of the main town but for a quiet overnight stop this hotel is ideal. More like a lodge in the countryside. Lovely scenic views. Amenities in the immediate area include a 24 hr...

We only stayed one night in our trip up the coast. Upon checking in, we were upgraded to a king room with a view which was a nice gesture. The room was quiet, clean and spacious. The complimentary continental breakfast was satisfying. The staff was super nice and accommodating. In fact, everyone we met during our visit to this town...

On travelling from LA to San Francisco the La Cuesta Inn was the ideal place to stop. We had a large clean room with 1 double bed, a TV, microwave & DVD player & a balcony. A large bathroom with an added feature of a plastic duck, was a fun touch. It was nice & quiet. You can also borrow...

Spent 4 nights at La Cuesta for SLO marathon. First floor room was surprisingly private at back/end of hotel, but a little dark and cool/damp? Towels never dried so we got fresh fluffy ones each day. Microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker but not too much space for prep. Fantastic bed and pillows. Extra sink outside bathroom which was handy. Nice pool...

just spent several days in slo. the la cuesta provided a comfortable base at a very reasonable price. the staff were very friendly and eager to be helpful. the room was good sized, well maintained and quiet. the occasional scent of cleanser in the public spaces was a little offputting but not a real problem.
