We absolutely loved the two person swing near the pool, don't miss it! I liked that our room was on the end of the building so it was quiet. Very nice, helpful staff. I only wish we had better weather during our trip. I understand from the locals that it was a very unusual storm for mid July but it... More

This Best Western was great. It was very clean, had a very nice breakfast, accommodated us for late check-in, and was nice inside/outside! They were very helpful with our late check-in. It was a little more than I had hoped to spend, but no major complaints other than that. We wish we were staying in the area longer to stay... More

There were hidden costs per person -- $20 per night for any adult -- a bit pricy, which we did not know when we booked. They are very strict about all rules -- use of the pool. They have no handicapped rooms. We did have old milk and strawberries in our room when we checked in that had to be... More

We stayed here for one night in august just before we did the big sur. For a motel, it's really good. All clean, good shower, good bed. Friendly staff as well. Close by the beach (4 minutes drive, about 20-30 minutes walk). Breakfast was included. The breakfast itself was okay.. missed fruits or just some meat or cheese to put... More

The Good: Upon arrival we were greeted by nice staff who had our rooms ready. We were on motorcycles and were given a motorcycle kit for cleaning our motorcycles. They are also a dog friendly motel. The room was clean and the bed was just OK. Now the bad: They have their smoking rooms strategically placed between and next to... More

We stayed here one night on a Sunday. Rooms are small but are clean, it did accommodate our party of four adults comfortably, we had two queen beds. Continental breakfast was nice. Good Coffee. There is also a Mexican restaurant on site. Easy drive to downtown Morro Bay.

The bed was more comfortable than ours at home. Room was very clean and well supplied with cute soaps, fan folded towels and more. Staff were very nice and cared about the guests. Flowers and a birthday were waiting for us in our room. Breakfast was delicious every morning.

Boohoo Kevin. What a cry baby. Learn to read or at least ask questions. We stay here frequently now since they accept pets. The rooms are always clean. No upstairs so no elephant noises spilling into your room late at night or early in the morning. Nice staff, free DVD movie library. Swimming pool (for registered guests Kevin), nice landscaping...
