Up at the usual time with the suitcases outside our room by 7am. Jackie beat me again by half a second. We had a light breakfast and our journey today is from Los Angeles initially to Santa Monica for a short break.

Understanding the names of the townships was made easier when Jose explained that the city names …

... Its beef, seasoned mostly with salt, pepper, lots of garlic and grilled over a wood or charcoal fire. The favorite way to serve this tasty meat is sliced on French or Sourdough bread. Bbq sauce or salsa is the condiment of choice. I had my first Tri Tip Sandwich over 10 years ago while visiting my friends Terry and Toni Clark and its something you just find out here in Cali.

... Serra. We were then walking down one of the main streets and could not understand why all these kids were hanging round the little lane. On closer inspection we discovered that this was the famous "Bubblegum Alley" . It is a fascinating, if somewhat unsanitary, walkway that features walls covered with gum of the "already been chewed" variety. The kids were all queuing to get into the shop next door to buy gum, chew it then stick it on ...

The best (and worst) of the Pacific Coast Highway

... forests. We saw surfers, basking seals, porpoises, zebras, and elks, all along our drive. We saw strawberries being harvested on one side of the road and brussell sprouts on the other side. We saw hectares and hectares of cultivated land and hectares and hectares of land being readied for planting. We saw gas selling for over $6.00 per gallon and then hundreds of miles without a gas station. We ...

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



    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



    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


    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!


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

    OK motel at an OK price.


    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.

    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


    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


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

    Think one could do better with some hunting...

    Good for the price!!


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

    Hated it!


    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.
