Had problems with key cards and lock. Staff responded indifferently--an apology would have helped. No one in office after 7:30 pm. No temperature control for room. We love Best Western, but NOT this one!

I pay a little more in the hope of getting a little more. Staff at check in were competent but not friendly. Rooms are well below par. Rooms are dark, shower tiny and lets not talk about the towels. Most of the residents were there for a bike ride but the breakfast isn't on till 7.45. They would not accommodate... More

NO AIR CONDITIONING!! The afternoon Sun heated the room thru the sliding glass doors to extremely hot temps ... very uncomfortable! Stained carpet. Room in poor repair. Bathroom door swollen and split at bottom due to design of shower and curtain not preventing floor being flooded with every shower and one was required to force the the door to close,... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at this motel. Best Western states this is a "Plus" motel. However, except for a couple of amenties, I'm not sure why. The room was clean and comfortable. However, the furnishings are very dated and old. There was no bath tub, only a shower. I'm going to mention something for those people who... More

Very clean, quaint and comfy feel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Elevator to higher floors. Rooms block noise well. Rooms were large. Wall separated bed and bathroom/sink area. Able to walk to Embaradaro.

The place is relatively small and intimate. It is an older, but upgraded property, part of a three property local chain. The staff are friendly with good local knowledge. The rooms all have small balconies with sliding glass doors for ventilation, needed if hot since there is no air conditioning. The rooms are reasonably sized with flat screen TV with... More

You cannot fault the staff - the cheese and wine is a really nice touch, as is the complimentary breakfast. But you cannot get away from the fact that the accommodation is below par with no outdoor pool - should not qualify as a "plus" in my view.

We stay at this Motel because it is close to the ocean in Morro Bay. The continental breakfast was very minimal and not appetizing. Carpets are old and worn but otherwise the room was fine. Parking is limited and sometimes difficult to get in and out.

Terrible. Old and sad looking, the dirt here is ground in making everything look depressing. The breakfast is a joke. Worst of all, there is NO AIR CONDITIONING. Hit the central coast in a warm spell and you will be miserable, as we were. The only caveat to this is the hotel staff was excellent.
