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...

Being an artist and doing the" Art in The Park" at Morro Bay, California. I am always looking for reasonably priced, clean hotels. This is a good one. On the weekends, we actually had a real warm breakfast. This helps you get through the day when you may not get away from your booth. The pool is heated and outdoors.... More

Everything about this property shows the care that has been taken to improve the guest experience. The rooms have been updated with lovely decor. Extra touches include a picnic area next to the pool along with a comfy swing to enjoy the ocean breeze and cool evenings. The breakfast bar includes yummy pastries and a complete waffle bar, not your... More

In selecting this motel for a two stay in Morro Bay I picked it primarily because it featured a pool. Only a few properties in Morro Bay have a pool. The reason why I wanted a pool was to allow my two grand children [4 and 8] to swim in the pool. They live in town. I read the El... More

Chose to stay here due to its proximity to Hearst Castle. Great little place. Super friendly staff - nice breakfast included and for the price, would highly recommend. Also, there were very nice beaches either by car or within walking distance. Additionally, we had a great meal in the town of Morro Bay - House of Ju Ju - fantastic... More

This particular Best Western is like one of the off the road motels I remember as a child. You pull up, park in front of your room single story building. You can see Morro Rock from the front and behind the motel are homes on a hill. They have done a good job of keeping it landscaped and visually appealing... More

We stayed here one night while driving hwy 1. It's dated, but comfy. The clerk was very friendly. They have complimentary DVDs in the office. The breakfast was the standard fair, but they use dishes not paper plates and bowl. The lobby was nicely decorated for the upcoming 4th of July.
