We love the Covered parking, the elevator helps for getting luggage up to room. Great to be greeted with free wine, cheese, and crackers. The free breakfast is nicely set up, and it's a close walk to the lovely town!

Yes, the remodel was still in progress; but everything possible was done to minimize inconvenience! A great value for the money! Everything very clean, my number one concern when I receive a great rate! I am a super light sleeper in the extreme and they helped me out with an upper floor and a wonderful view of the rock, despite... More

The hotel is worn and tired. The breakfast room is a mess with insulation hanging out of the ceiling. The hot water only worked intermittently. This place really needs work! The only good thing is the location. If you must stay in Morro Bay, this is a great spot. However, you can get a much better hotel at Paso Robles... More

A big indoor hot tub, and wine and cheese evenings are two things that distinguish this hotel as a fun stay. It is a great value for the price. Only negative is it is easy to hear people coming and going (opening and shutting their doors), and showering and walking around in the room above you - could be a... More

Well if I was rating this old hotel against other old hotels I would give it a 4. If compared to all hotels I give it a 2. The Bellagio at s 5 and a new Holiday Inn express at a 4, then this best western is a 2. The Common areas were old and dirty. The room was surprisingly... More

If you know you are having a major renovation, I think it would be nice to mention on your site before we book. All the common areas were a disaster with doors blocked and yellow caution tape everywhere. That said, once finished, I'm sure the property will be much better. Room was clean and adequate but we could hear the... More

Breakfast was very good, lots of choices. Wifi in the room worked well to check email & surf the web. Only drawback were the rude guests who were very noisy outside... More
