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.

Our room faced the Bay and even though we were a couple of blocks away, we had a nice view of the Bay and could even hear the seals from their dock. It was a nice short walk to the Bay side shops & restaurants. We also took in an evening Bay cruise past the seals to Morro Rock (evening... More

This was just a bad place when your expectations are set for a Plus Best Western this property was definitely a Best Western Minus. Just too many thing to downgrade this place. I have stayed at motels at $78 that were just as good as this. I don't mind old motels with old styles - for the price. But this... More

Stayed in room 318, no view of bay. Wasn't planning on being in room much so it didn't matter. Things I liked about this Inn was clerks were very friendly, some parking is covered, bed was comfortable, the fact that the sink and countertop was outside the shower/toliet area. Room was clean and kept up. Plenty of room on sink... More

4.5 rating. This is a small, older motel a few blocks from the waterfront in Morro Bay, walking distance to restaurants. We had a very pleasant stay. The staff was cordial and professional, and we got the impression that they liked being there. There is a lot of information on Morro Bay in the room--history, attractions, etc. Refrigerator and microwave... More

We stopped here one night on our way south. The staff is pleasant and accommodating. However, for the price, it's a rather tired hotel. The hallway carpet and room carpets are covered with stains and the walls and vanities are just not that fresh looking. It turns out the balcony overlooking the Rock was to serve as the air conditioning... More

Advanced phone reservation mix-up handled by very cordial/helpful staff. Room was overly warm with no AC, so sleeping was not the best. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom/shower area fairly cramped in an older, remodeled motel. Accommodations fairly average for motel stays these days.

It became very frustrating trying to find accommodation after 8pm, we had the travel coupon magazine, and this was the only motel that would honour the walk in voucher, they were a bit reluctant but after sharing that it was the coupon magazine that bought us in, made sense that the advertising worked. The room was large enough, with many... More

We took a 5 day coastal trip from Los Angeles to Santa Rosa. We stayed at 4 different Best Western hotels each night. The customer service at Morro Bay San Marcos is what set them apart from all the other Best westerns. We love the breakfast option Best western has for our large family, SanMarcos inn, however, even has a... More
