Morro bay is an excellent city to stay while doing the ca pacific coast. The hotel is close to beach, bay , shops , lots of seals, sea lions in the bay. Excellent location for overnight stay. Location, rate, Free parking and breakfast. The beach is approx a mile away.

We sent an email to the hotel requesting a late check in. I wanted them to be aware as I'd read the reviews about the front desk not being very welcoming. We arrived around midnight. We were greater at the Hotel check in by a horribly angry man. Apparently didn't get the message that we would have a late check... More

Stayed for one night on way to San Fransico. Friendly bloke on reception. Room-carpet filthy and thick dust around edges. Comfy bed. Shower ok, bathroom needed decorating. Fine for one night though to get your head down, if you want cheap. Lovely little town though with some great shops and restaurants. Free continental breakfast did the job.

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
