We have been to this hotel plenty of times in the last 5 years with it being a wonderful experience....until this last time. Not sure if they have new owners again but we did not see Nichole who was the owner back in September 2014. The man at the check in counter was not to friendly and was like he... More

I would certainly recommend bay view if you are visiting morro bay. The hotel is just up from the harbour, although if you have difficulty walking it is all up hill coming back. The hotel itself is really nice and the owner is very friendly. The town has plenty of eating places and bars. There is also a colony of... More

It seems that this hotel has gone downhill since we last stayed in June. New management? They were in the process of making improvements,but those improvements have stopped now. Room was dirty. My wife went to front desk for something to clean the counters with and was given one wipe. This hotel sometimes has good rates through Hotels.com and is... More

The owner was very annoyed that he had to get up and rent the room to me even though he did put a "night bell" at the door. Then I discovered that even though there were many vacancies he put me in a room next to a very noisy ice machine. The topper though was when I called the next... More

We stayed here for one night (thankfully just the one) last month. I am afraid if anyone is recommending this place they must be deluded. It is just dreadful. We guessed it was going to be pretty bad just by standing in reception. Filthy glass doors and all desperately in need of an overhaul. On the plus side the bedding... More

Unfortunately this was one of the only rooms available for a busy Cal Poly parents weekend so I tried it despite the reviews. The room had a nasty odor to it and was run down with holes in the walls and a constant electronic buzz. The neighbor dogs behind the hotel started barking at 6:30. The breakfast was a few... More

This was our last resort, although when we left Morro Bay and headed north we realized we might have found something if we had driven a little further. As it was, we were headed to Santa Barbara until we couldn't find a hotel room to save our lives in San Luis Obispo or Pismo Beach. We figured we would find... More

Nice clean hotel, staff was very friendly and helpful. A bit on the high end priced but my fault waited till last minute to book. Nicole was extremely friendly. Nothing bad to say, I would recommend this hotel to family and friends

PROS: The view of Morro Rock (if you request it) Walking distance to Dorn's Restaurant and the Embarcadero CONS: Lack of cleanliness: The bathroom sink had hair and toothpaste in it (gross!) The toilet interfered with the bathroom door, so they cut a funky hole in the door that squeezes by the toilet bowl in order to close the door.... More
