      Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Royal Oak Hotel San Luis Obispo

      Brilliant

      from

      Staff at the reception were the best we met on a 10 hotel stay on a west coast fly/drive holiday. Friendly hellpful and had excellent local knowledge of where to eat shop etc

      Room was clean (Accomodation was recently upgraded and it showed)

      Resaurants were walking distance from the hotel. Would strongly recommend Applebys. Great food and freindly staff

      Average

      from

      I stayed here for one night on our way down to San Diego. It is perfectly fine for one or two nights, I wouldn't stay for a week. It was cleaner than I expected. Easy to find and quiet. Dog friendly for an extra $10 per night. IHOP next door and shopping center across the street. The room had a small fridge, which is always nice. I would stay here again for a short time period. It is nothing fancy but at least it is clean!

      A fine place to stay for the night

      from

      We (myself, wife and adult daughter) stayed here one night just after Labor Day. It was just fine. Large room, two queen beds and clean bathroom, fridge and coffee maker, IHOP next door (get 10% discount when showing your room key). Super-sized outdoor pool (with lift for disabled guests) and spa. Free WiFi access. Good continental breakfast (except TV was much too loud for first thing in the morning). Large shopping area across the main road.

      Would stay again 100%. Booked thru Expedia and got a good discount.

      Nothing Royal about it!

      from

      Stayed here in Nov '04 and like the other reviewer ,could only call it what it is , a Motel.

      Receptionist was in a foul mood when we booked in,no smile ,no chat ,just the bare essentials. Boy,were we glad to drive all around the back to find our room!!

      Place is very large and when as quite as the night we were there,also very eerie.Our room was just fine .Not very big but good queen bed, tv ,micro,fridge .In fact, your average Motel with even the ever present 'straws' with which to stir your beverage.There is a pool there but was closed 'for the season'.

      The town itself was empty with most places closed .We had a quick meal in a Mexican Rest and enjoyed.

      Next morning we had breakfast which was not the worst experiance we had in States. A buffet bar with bowls of mixed fruit was a change from the norm.Glad to see a firm called 'Farmers Bros' now package

      good tea and you don't have to rely on that appalling Liptons English concoction.

      Cutlery was ALL plastic! Apparantly Americans cannot be trusted with genuine cutlery .

      As with a lot of places throughout the U.S. that bear the name "Hotel",I find,as a European,that these places are not in the same league as ours but 'when in Rome..' !!

      However ,not the worst place to overnight .

      OK motel at an OK price.

      from

      Good things: stunning view of the rolling hills from my 3rd floor room, good coffee and apples in the lobby all day and night, first rate front desk people, lowest price I could find for an OK place to stay that was near the Madonna Inn, great new big screen TV, plenty of room to walk around the king bed, very quiet at night, killer view of the rolling hills.

      Bad things: swimming pool had not been cleaned and was too cold to use, the pool's restroom door was locked, the cinder block motel room felt like being in a prison cell, the bed was so firm my arm went to sleep while sleeping on my side, the bathroom tub was quite old, narrow and impossible for me to safely stand up in (well I do need to drop 60 pounds), located on a main street with traffic noise until later at night (only when I opened the patio door).

      Overall: my stay was OK for the best price/value I could find, I would stay there again if I could not find a better place at the same $90.00 rate.

      from

      What a great place to stay!

      The rooms were huge, clean, and very reasonable.

      The worst part about the hotel is that we had to leave. I would recommend it whole-heartedly.

      10% off at IHOP

      from

      My engineering group stayed there for a conference. In my opinion, the hotel is a great deal. Nice and warm comfortable beds and very convenient because the shopping center is right across the street. My only complaint is that fellow members told me that their TVs and/or alarm clocks don't work. O_o Anyway, overall, I recommend the hotel.

      You get 10% at IHOP which is adjacent to the hotel and they have a hottub! ^_~

      Clean, Decent, but Spartan

      from

      Clean and decent, very spartan with exception of loud mini fridge.

      Think one could do better with some hunting...

      Good for the price!!

      from

      I've been twice at this hotel. It is not a great hotel but is good.

      Just keep in mind it is a Best Western not a Hyatt. You pay for what you get. It is a quite hotel, clean. It is about 3 minutes driving to the downtown and it's very close to the Madonna Inn, a very famous hotel which I personally found very "cheesy". But well. it is a matter of taste. If you compare the price of this Best Western with other hotels in the town it's a very godd option, especially for last minute reservations if it's not a holiday.

      The breakfast is not your best option, but there are a couple of good reastaurants across street where you can drive or walk.

      The rooms are clean. It is not a new hotel so don't expect great things. The pool is just OK and we didn't find it crowded. It is not too apealing either, there are better things to do in town.

      Some people of the staff was very corteous and helpful but some other were very rude. So good luck for you.

      San Luis Obispo offers a great area for wine tasting and dinning. If you have time visit the Hearst Castle about 1.5 hours from there. Enjoy it. It is a very cozy town.

      Hated it!

      from

      My family and I stayed here for one night on our way to San Francisco from a day in L.A. Even though it seemed clean, it seemed like a dump. Nothing special at all. Breakfast was marginal. The price was way too high for a hotel like this. Avoid this place if you can.

      Woensdag hadden we een wat kortere dag voor de boeg, dus rustig opgestaan en alles in de auto geladen. In San Francisco nog even rond gereden langs de meest bochtige weg van SF en naar de punt bij de Golden Gate Bridge. De straten daar zijn wel erg stijl! Doorgereden via Highway 1, een mooie weg, maar helaas was het mistig en konden we dus niet …

      ... are spectacular and scary as hell. Just navigating the driveways would be a daily "hold your breath" event. But I am sure the view of the majestic Pacific Ocean is worth it. The rain started to ease around 1pm so we stopped at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park for our hike to the waterfall. The skies were blue but it was mysteriously still spitting on us, but at least it was light rain. The hike was more of a walk and the ...

      Breakfast in S. Barbara after a night at awful Motel6 place. Visit of the Spanish mission, then to San Luis Obispo. The motel in San Luis not very good either. We should have gone a bit northern, in the direction of Big Sur rather than stopping here. SLO is a little town with nice downtown, a few shops. It is not on the coast, we drove to the Pismo Beach, a very run-down place. A couple nice surf shops. Dinner at an excellent burger place called Eureka!, a californian ...
