Driving up Pacific Coast Highway and had a reservation at this Best Western as a midway point to Carmel. Picked this hotel based on trip advisor reviews and it did not disappoint. Very friendly staff, rooms were very nice and clean. Beds are super comfortable too. The hotel is right up the street from shops and restaurants and a short...

We met with other family. From Sonora and Salinas. We had a great time and the rooms are always nice and clean. Staff is really nice and helpful. We have never had any problems while staying here.Great walking distance for most things in Moro Bay.

Good location, one block from the bay. Quiet. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Building is being refurbished as it is an older dated site. Comfortable very clean room. Very good quality soaps, towels. Breakfast in the lobby but arrangement a bit cramped. Probably will improve once building refurbishing finished. This is a good value for proximity to the bay, as...

The Best Western San Marcos in Morro Bay, CA is a well run hotel that is both a great bargain and a terrific place to stay. The rooms on the bay side have a fine view of Morro Bay harbor and the town.

Always stay here for the view of Morro Rock and the estuary and the sounds of the sea gulls, sea lions and fog horn. Can't hear that in Nebraska. Room is clean and charming. Walking distance to bay and great seafood restaurants.

This is a nice little place. Clean, close the the beach, relatively quite location. Nice lobby where they serve an updated continental breakfast and even wine and cheese in the evening. Great choices for both! I really liked the entrance lobby fountain and the furniture there is new and clean. Very calming area to be. Check-in is quite simple and...

The facility is a bit dated but he rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. The breakfast was better than some in this same category: oatmeal with lots of toppings, fresh waffles, fruit, juice, hard boiled eggs, pastries, toast. Skip the pastries and go for the other goodies. The wine and cheese was a nice touch. The wine was what...

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in April. Really nice staff. The breakfast was also nice with many choices. Also enjoyed the complementary wine and cheese in the evening.

The room rates for this hotel were a little, for the qualilty of the room offered. The rates varied from $134.00 a night to $240.00 a night for the same room. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Needs major imporements.

If you expect friendly front desk service, DO NOT stay at this hotel. Desk clerks only acknowledge you after you basically demand their attention ... no greeting, no 'May I help you?' ... even when activity is slow/non-existent. Breakfast layout is minimal and poorly arranged. Room is very small, in need of paint, but otherwise clean. Overpriced compared to service...

Please accept our apology for the poor service you experienced with our front desk agent. We pride ourselves on our superior guest service. What you experienced is not normal operating procedure for us. The regional manager has read this review and is working to ensure that this type of action is not repeated in the future.
