Blue Sail Inn is a very simple hotel that is clean and pleasant. We had a balcony view with a fabulous view of Morro Bay. The rooms need some updating and the carpets need to be replaced, but we enjoyed our stay here. The live bands play until 11:30 so it isn't quiet until then. We parked our car on... More

Actually probably 3 1/2 nice spacious comfortable rooms, close to bay and all the touristy businesses, nice restaurant next door (don't know we weren't hungry). Three complaints, one of which isn't there fault. First they were unaware of a local boat tour and tried to steer me to one of their friends. What they didn't know was that the one... More

We always enjoy the view from the Blue Sail Inn, except this time we were surrounded by fog all evening and all morning. But the rooms are nice - nothing new or updated, but they are nice and clean and comfortable. It was a holiday so the rates were higher but they are fine for a nice place with a... More

Hi Roseanna S, Thank you for staying with us again and sharing your experience with others on TripAdvisor. Morro Bay tends to be foggy when it's hot inland but it can change sporadically throughout the day. We look forward to your return. More

We stayed here for one night on our way up the coast. We got a pretty good internet rate and the room was less expensive and nicer than I expected. Unfortunately I can't remember the front desk clerk's name, but she was very nice and helpful. Our room was in the building across the street which had covered parking and... More

Stopped here for the night on our drive up the Pacific Coast Hwy. The price was reasonable and the room was clean, well-equipped and very large. It had a mini-kitchen with sink, microwave and fridge; a flat-screen TV and a nice recliner. King bed was comfortable. Breakfast was adequate. Would stay here again.

The staff were very friendly and nice, the price is ok compared to others but the room we had was a bit out dated and dingy looking. It was close to all the things to do and acessable. It wouldn't be my first choice but if you couldn't get a good rate somewhere else it's a good alternative.

A conviently located inn in front of Morro Rock on Morro Bay. The main shopping and eating area is across the street. Establishment is in two sections directly across from one another. There breakfast fare could stand improvement. A short ride to San Simeon, and San Luis Obispo.
