Love this town and its location. Sea food dinners are wonderful and priced right. People friendly and great to walk to shops and out to lunch and or dinner. Fresh air and easy to get around. A great stop over between San Diego and San Francisco.

My lady and I were looking for a hotel in Morro Bay that we could walk to-and-from easily in town. This was the perfect place. I highly recommend an ocean side view, especially if you enjoy sipping wine at night and watching the ocean, or a morning view over coffee. Very comfy beds and excellent room amenities. The staff was... More

Always pleasant and clean. Friendly staff. Stay on the 3rd floor with ocean view. Love the oversized spa. Great breakfast included. Right in town and steps from several restaurants and shops. Love staying here with the kids. We bring our bikes. Morro bay has done a great job with bike trails

This hotel definitely had some pros and cons! The pros first....VERY good location. I had a wonderful view of Morro Rock. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. The wine and cheese "reception" was nice. The wine wasn't too bad and the cheese and crackers were good. Originally, I was disappointed that breakfast was posted as not being served until... More

With how highly rated this hotel was on TripAdvisor and having never stayed in Morro Bay, we booked a room here. My daughter was staying at the Days Inn for a golf tournament, but we felt like even though Best Western was more expensive, it would be worth the extra cost. We could have saved 1/3rd of our lodging costs... More

Nice Balcony, Pleasant stay. Room was clean and close to the downtown which made it just right. Would stay there again. The view when facing Morro Rock is wonderful. Enjoyed the stay! Did not try the breakfast that they offered or the cocktail hour they had.

This hotel was clean. We requested a room with a view and a balcony. The kings size bed was very comfortable. The room is a bit dated. Staff was helpful and friendly. Quiet and restful. I would say it meets the minimum for a hotel stay. Breakfast bar use the usual continental: hot waffles, no eggs or bacon type food.
