We spent one night at the Cuesta Inn. We were dropping our son at CAL Poly after the winter break. We were surprise with the size of the rooms and modern decor. Breakfast was a plus. We will definitely come back.

Thank you for your review! We appreciate you taking the time to write about your experience with us. We are happy to hear that you found our Hotel to be ideal for exploring the surrounding area and that our guest services was so hospitable and welcoming. However, we are sorry for the less than pleasant experience you had in the particular bathroom that your room had, as well as trouble with the WiFi. We will look into these problems you have experienced, and will see what we can do to improve the state of them. Thanks again for your review and feedback, and we hope you’ll give the area another chance in the future!

Other than the issue with the running water to the toilet sound, this stay was great! Very close to where we needed to be for a friends wedding. Free delicious homemade cookies in the evening! Very close to the splash cafe and walking distance to other shops around town.
