Of three different hotel stays during a recent trip to California, our stay at the Best Western in Moro Bay was the best. Friendly and helpful staff make you feel right at home. A comfortable front courtyard where you can visit with other travelers, take a swim or even have a small barbecue, or just sit quietly and enjoy the... More

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us! We do have spectacular sunsets too see from our pool and patio. We are sorry to hear that the internet was not working properly and we wish that you could have brought that to our attention so that we may have fixed any issues while you were still here.... More

This place doesn't look like much from the freeway but WOW what an amazing gem! There are too many thoughtful touches to this hotel to mention here from the real hard boiled eggs (not pre-peeled so they were fresh and not slimy to the full gym day pass for crazy people like me who want to work out to the...

This is a top notch hotel for pet lovers. They go beyond the ordinary by proving treats, towels ect for your pet. This should be rated as a plus hotel for pets. The front garden area is cute and well kept. The staff was wonderful and caring. The value is well within reason. The access to the hotel is very... More

If you want to be in Morro Bay, but want a restful place out of the hubbub in town, choose the Best Western El Rancho. It is just outside the North end of town. The room was clean and had been remodeled since our last stay there. Dogs are welcomed there, a must for us. There was a "Welcome Basket"... More

I really enjoyed staying in this hotel they are dog friendly, lots of places to walk and they provide laundry for guests which we needed. It is on the land side of I-5 but it is easy to take main street to get to the embarcadaro. It reminds me of the old hotels in the 50's but well maintained. Staff... More

Perfect place to stay for excursions to the wine country and the central coast. Cool Ocean Breezes. Restaurant and Grocery store near by. Three minute drive to wonderful beaches. Morro Bay, San Simeon, Cayucos, Harmony, Cambria, and Moonstone Beach just a beautiful short drive away.

Another great visit to the Best Western El Rancho in Morro Bay. As always, the manager and front desk staff are top notch. The rooms are well maintained and very clean. If your intentions are to stay in Morro Bay at a reasonable price, this must be the place you are looking for.

Best Western El Rancho is a quaint motel on the North end of Morro Bay. The hotel is probably 50 or more years old, but has been remodeled; It was very nice. Room decor could be updated but overall the room was very nice. The grounds were exceptional. Even in a drought, BW El Rancho had an abundance of flowers,... More
