This place was okay. The rooms don't have AC but there was a stand fan in the room and it was bearable with the screen door open and the fan blowing air in. Luckily the nightlife is not late or loud so we didn't have to hear too much noise beyond the sea lions barking in the bay (that was... More

The hotel and room was very Clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. Out was located Close enough to the beach, shops, and dinning to walk. My grandson loved looking out on the balcony at the water and boats. No comment on the breakfast as we didn't eat at the establishment. Very convenient to have microwave and refrigerator in the room.

I stayed here on a trip up the PCH from LA to SF - and it met my expectation for the most part. The location was very good - just off the main tourist strip of Morro Bay, overlooking the rock. I went for the cheapest room available, so I just had a view of the parking lot, but that... More

My wife and I were celebrating our 24th anniversary in August and wanted to view the Perseid meteor shower, since we met 24 years ago during this shower. I chose the Blue Sail Inn, because we have stayed here before. On this trip, we chose the Deluxe Bay View King, since it has a balcony (Rm 114). We had a... More

I have stayed at the Blue Sail Inn several times, and here's my summary: Pros: location, view of Morro Bay and Morro Rock, reasonably good sized rooms, very friendly staff. Cons: dated and worn décor, beds are average for comfortable, walls and furniture knicked, the continental breakfast was basic but had terrible coffee, and a tad over-priced in peak season.... More

Wide Variation in Rooms, be Careful Good location with many restaurants within walking distance. Our room, however, was disappointing. There is the original building and across the street is a new building. Our room in the original building was on the first floor (Rm 102) facing the water. Since this is a hillside, there was very poor air circulation in... More

Hi jpDills, We appreciate your recent review on the Blue Sail Inn. I'm sorry that you were disappointed about your stay. Both sides of the street were completed and opened at the same time in 1986. The rooms on property that have balconies don't have air conditioning and the rooms that just have the windows are equipped with air conditioning.... More

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

OlderThanSand, Thank you for choosing to stay with Blue Sail Inn on your way up the coast. We're glad that you were able to enjoy the amenities that we offer and our helpful staff.
