I chose this spot for the price, location and the reviews were ok. And all those things are true. It was a great deal if you are not looking for anything more than a place to spend the night. Internet was almost non existent and I found room to have much deferred maintenance. I was in room 106 and there... More

My wife and I reserved a room here for the first time, 6 weeks in advance of a wedding, through Booking.com. It looked pretty good, with a great location. Driving up you'd expect more than they deliver. Our room was not clean, in somewhat rough condition, and obviously in the middle of bathroom repairs. The towel rack had been pulled... More

The problem here is not the facility, it is the owners, who should not be in the hospitality industry. The facility itself is an older, dated beach hotel like several dozen others in Morro Bay. The room we stayed in had been updated cheaply, but was updated. It was not overly clean, and the beds were worn out, but we... More

We chose this motel based on price and location. As it was approaching the beggining of Spring vacation for some, availablity seemed tight in the area. We arrived and the lady in the reception area was very business like. No conversation, just completing the business of getting us checked in, which was fine. We were given a ground level room...

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
