Very nice and clean hotel. Great location - only short walk (3-5 min)to the beach promenade with views and restaurants for every taste. Very convinient parking place with backdoor directly to the main holl. We loved our short stay there (was 2 adults + 2 kids). Highly recommends this hotel!

We often stay at Best Western Plus hotels and this hotel represents the standard fairly well. The staff here are all very friendly & personable and go out of their way to provide good customer service. The hotel itself is a little old and could use some updating but overall everything worked in the room and it was very clean...

Excellent service, views, clean, comfortable and it even has a wonderful view of the bay and Morro Rock from the enclosed spa!! The breakfasts and cheese & wine in the evenings are great and they always have a fire in the fireplace in the cozy lobby!! This is the only place I stay when I visit beautiful Morro Bay!!!

Great views of Morro rock and the embarcadero. They went out of their way to make our bike parking in a convenient location. Ice machine didn't work but they had ice available at the check in desk. Rooms could use a modern touch and new elongated toilets. All in all not bad . Doable continental breakfast and wine and cheese...

The staff sure make a difference here. In their own individual ways, it is apparent each member contributes his/her own individual qualities to insure all guests and each other, can have the only best of time. The hotel is being gradually updated without causing any major disruptions. For example, see the picture of the newer and larger Jacuzzi (spa.) Also...

I love staying at this hotel, so close to the bay and all shops and restaurants within walking distance. Friendly, clean and quiet. The changing views of Morro Rock throughout the day are fabulous from the balconies. Breakfast is plentiful and varied.

Comfortable bed, pleasant accommodations. Had ocean view and was on the 3rd floor so was able to leave the sliding glass door open at night. Was within walking distance to shops and restaurants. A movie theatre was within walking distance as well as shops in that area. Was close to Cambria and spent the day there. We have been here...

We're back again and did not consider any other hotel in Morro Bay. We have been coming to this hotel for about 15 to 20 years if that tells you anything. Location is perfect for just about anything you want to do. Walk to shopping, restaurants, movie theater and a short drive to golf, fishing, the beach and surfing. So...

Very nice Hotel indeed. We were looked after well by Madi when we checked in. The room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was included in the rate and they gave us complimentary cheese and wine 5-7pm - a nice touch.

The room was nice. Breakfast not so much. The waffle maker destroyed the waffles, as they stuck to the grid. No breakfast selections for diabetics, or those avoiding sugar. The Cheerios were sugar-coated. This facility charges extra for rooms with an ocean view, which matters not to us. We just want a good night's sleep.
