We were disappointed that we didn't have an air conditioner, the ceiling fan was noisy and over in one corner of the room. We left the sliding door open as we had a sea view room and all we heard was the fog alarm and the sea lions. Thought that this was very expensive accommodation for what you got.

We were in a beautiful room with a view of Moro Rock and the Bay. The huge spa in a windowed room was definitely above average in ambiance. The sitting areas in the central areas were a nice place to relax.

This place had pros and cons. Pros- Nice that there was a printer and computer in the lobby was great! The location was great- very near to the beach, very central to all wineries, beaches, and town. The price was good for a two night quick stay. Cons- It was very loud, you could hear your next door neighbors. They... More

I had a spur of the moment stay here, late on a Thursday. The staff was most helpful, the room nice and clean, ocean view. As a drop in, I was given a very good rate and enjoyed time on the balcony with the ocean view. There was no AC but there were two fans which proved adequate because leaving... More

I believe this hotel had everything for a great weekend getaway....location, location, location. And great parking! Friendly Staff..Best view of the ocean by far. It was good time! The room was clean and nice ...slightly pricey for the weekend rates...

Stayed one night at the beginning of August, as a friend and I were planning to visit Hearst Castle the next day. I'm glad that I'd booked balcony rooms with an ocean view for two reasons: the great view of Morro Rock and the chance to catch a bit of ocean breeze...though the latter ultimately proved fruitless, as I had...

I stop at Morro Bay as a half way point. I usually stay at this hotel because they give me points, it has a great view, and it is close to things I like to do so I can just walk to them. I used my points this trip and was dissapointed that if I wanted that great view I... More

We have came to San Marcos for 6 or 7 years, so friendly and welcoming, the hotel, so close to the embarkadaro by the ocean, a block and a half from the down town which is so quaint. Our stay is and always has been such a pleasure. So much to do and see. Lois Propersi

This is the very FIRST we went to the coast and I didn't freeze because of the breeze, I know has been very hot. Because it has been HOT you would think the hotel would have been prepared. The fan ceiling (in the corner - not in the center of the room where it MIGHT have done some good), was... More

The location was great...a short walk to the pier action. As stated by others, there is no air conditioning and though our room had a balcony and door that faced the bay, it was still muggy in our room. And be prepared to be quiet. Within 5 minutes of arriving, we were scolded by our neighbors. We had three young... More
