“So comfortable felt like home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

My daughter and I stayed here for a month this past January and February. The people who work here are incredible, quality people. They are very knowledgeable about the area. So kind and helpful. Helped with recommendations for restaurants and all kinds of services we needed being there so long. I especially needed help with computer questions. The work room was private and very accessible. All the employees went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and right at home. The breakfast was great! The evening reception was our dinner most nights. Anything we needed or any questions, were taken care of very professionally. Spa area, pool and work out room were very clean and well taken care of. Housekeeping staff and maintenance were great! Front desk people are amazing!

Room Tip: Main building has great internet access.

The Royal Oak in San Luis Obispo is located across the street from a shopping mall, near a bus stop, and also near a freeway. The rooms are good size, well appointed, and very clean. There is a large swimming pool which we did not use yet it looked inviting. Parking in the hotel lot can be a bit tricky: available but perhaps not near your room. Nevertheless, we recommend the hotel; it is a great place to stay whether on business or pleasure.

Stayed one night recently while visiting our son at Cal Poly. The hotel is not right in town so you cannot walk to town, it's only a few exits away. The price was very reasonable. The outside of the hotel is not particularly charming, but the rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfasts are decent and included fresh fruit, a nice touch. We had no complaints. It is dog friendly too, which is great for pet owners.

This was a great place to stay, convenient to downtown, beaches, etc. Nice staff, very clean, absolutely no complaints. Enjoyed the continental breakfast, the wine and cheese service in the evening, and the friendly staff. They knew the area well and were helpful with events; provided a map of the downtown area with sections highlighted.

Stayed one night at this location with my husband. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were comfortable, well-maintained, and clean. I was a bit disappointed that the toiletries were not of better quality. The breakfast was amazing, with make your own waffles, hard-boiled egg, fresh grapefruit, yogurt, and more. Parking was free. Location is close to various restaurants and shopping. We had a very nice stay!

We stayed at this hotel for a soccer tournament. The staff at the front desk was friendly and very helpful at finding places to eat. They even gave us a coupon for one of the restaurants. The room was clean but the carpet looked older, which made the decor feel dated. We didn't use the pool, but some in our group said it was nice. This hotel is not in the center of town so it is quiet, but you have to drive to everything.

We stay almost every year in San Louis Obispo. This year we chose The Best Western Plus Royal Oak Hotel on Madonna Road.
And we really liked it a lot.
So easy to reach, especially due to the nice and clear instructions we received. We got a great welcome, checking in, a lot of helpful information, a great rate. Complementary wine, beer, cheese , salami from 5 till 7 PM.
The room was very clean and nice.
Breakfast was good to.
Overall super !!!! We will come back !
