We stayed here one night (Glad it wasn't more!) while on a road trip. The first problem was finding the room; the surly desk clerk sort of waved his hand saying, "It's back there". We drove all through the parking lot twice, looking for the room number. We had to go back to the office to ask the clerk to... More

We have stayed at the Breakers several times and it is still our go to place for Morro Bay. You cannot beat the location and while not the Ritz and a little older, it is very comfortable, clean and friendly. The second floor is a must, (we really like the corner room) and the view is great!

My mom and I stayed here recently and while the Location is perfect and the office staff is nice, this place needs some major updateing. Even just doubling sheeting the bed with a white comforter would help. The bedding was a very old polyester bedspread which made me feel itchy. I also would recommend not being on the first floor...

This hotel has a view across the bay which provides a spectacular sunset. Its a 1 minute walk down to the waterfront to all the gorgeous shops and restaurants. We stayed on the 3rd floor in a king room with a fireplace. The room was a little dated buts this just adds to the charm of this spectacular place. One... More

My daughter and I decided to take a very last minute...long weekend...right before school started. We came upon The Breakers Motel and there just happened to be a room for the night we planned to stay in Morro Bay. As it turned out, after booking it, we decided to see if we could get a 3rd night there too. Unfortunately,... More

After a disappointing first night in Morro Bay (at a different motel) we moved to Breakers Motel. Absolutely awesome great location, the guy at the front service desk who lives on site is brilliant. The place has a pool and a warm water spa and all for 79 bucks a night. We've road tripped down the west coast and this... More

I hate to tell anyone else about this FABULOUS FIND, but in fairness to the motel, I have to. It's like paying $15 for a bottle of wine, only to discover it would rate a 97 WS score. Decor: dated (Who cares?!?!? Pull your chair up to the window and look at the amazing view) View: phenomenal anytime a day... More

Trip to Morro Bay for some Labor Day fun. Fishing, whale watching, bike riding etc. Stayed at the Breakers Motel. Great location! The room was clean, but for the amount we paid for a night it was so outdated. The furniture was old and the lighting was bad. It looked like the only thing they have changed was the carpeting...

Front desk is nice, got a room at AAA rate, no a/c but that's normal for area, (some rooms do have them though), about the only motel that isn't a chain that has a pool, clean room, small refer, microwave, quiet place. No traffic noise, you can hear the fog horn and the sea lions at night. Parking is rather... More

We chose the Breakers this time in Morro Bay because of the location and price. Like many of the places in Morro Bay it's older but it was clean and spacious. Mini frig and microwave in the room, roomy bathroom and a great view from our 2nd floor room. It's a short block up from the center of the embarcadero... More
