I was able to book a last minute room on Memorial Day weekend for around $169. The room (#104) was on the lower level, was huge and had a decent view of the rock and waterfront from the balcony. The room was dated, (fish wallpaper border!) but spotless, so who cares? The free Continental breakfast included some nice scones as... More

The first time we visited Morro bay 2 years ago it was Labour day weekend so no room at the inn but it looked great and so we decided when we came back we'd try it. Brilliant! Yes it is a regular kind of motel but a good one, we had a sea view room and really beautiful looking over... More

Very Comfortable rooms and very clean. Beds were very comfortable and great pillows. Good customer service, helpful staff. Close to the beach and shopping, so easy walking. Close to food services if you are walking. Easy to check in and out.

Great Location. Guy at the front desk was super nice. It was pretty clean, and I really liked the kitschy wallpaper, but the bathroom is super dated and some of the furniture is very worn. Keep the wallpaper and renovate a bit. They use horrible styrofoam in the room and breakfast room, which is disappointing. Pretty good value for the... More

Hi Jennypn, Thank you for your review on Tripadvior and the five star on Service. We're currently looking forward to starting a renovation in the Fall. As well as, looking into reducing our styrofam use and looking into more green product use. More

Blue Sail Inn is in a great location in Morro Bay, a block from restaurants, and shops. Our room was very comfortable. We had a great view of Morro Rock and we could hear seals gently talking across the bay in the twilight. The hotel staff were remarkably unhelpful. We phoned several times to try to get help with a... More

We just spent one night on our way home to Southern California. Location can't be beat. Ask for ocean view room. Very ordinary motel/hotel. Could use some better decorating. It was clean and the maid was helpful when needed. Breakfast was not much, but ok. I would stay here again just for the location an view.

Thank you Richard A for your nice review and noting the helpful staff. The hotel is at a very convenient location to enjoy the Embarcadero and not far from Main Street as well. We would love to see you the next time you visit Morro Bay too! More

Found the Blue Sail Inn very late at night after a lot of hotels were booked. The young guy in the office was very polite & gave great customer service. We got a room with a partial view & it was very clean & spacious. The breakfast was great we had some muffins, toast, cereal, yogurt, bagels, fruit, cinnamon rolls,... More

This was our 3rd stay. We had a suite on the top floor with a large balcony and a great view of the harbor and the rock. The room was nice and clean. Good bed and linens. Reasonably priced. We shall repeat!

Unfortunately this was only a flying visit, arriving at 8pm and leaving at 8am, however we had a friendly welcome and our rooms were perfect after a long drive. Clean, well stocked and comfortable. Only wish we'd had more time to enjoy!

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay here. The view of Morro Rock and the harbor is fantastic. Just one block to the waterfront, shopping and dining. Staff was very courteous and accommodating. Small parking lot but plenty of street parking as well. Not a problem. As for the negative review about the continental breakfast I would say this.... More
