I've been staying at the Best Western San Marcos for over 20 years. It's not a large hotel - 30+ rooms. Half face the ocean and Morro Rock, the other half have what they call a "city view." Downtown Morro Bay is on the side of a hill that runs down to the sea so the city view is what's... More

We spent 2 days at Morro Bay staying at Best Western PLUS San Marcos Inn. Hotel staff was very helpful, accommodating early check in and check out, providing free upgrade. I felt like I can touch the Morro Rock from my balcony. Huge spa with a view as well. Free breakfast and wine tasting let you talk to other fellow... More

The hotel was clean and convenient. The Staff was very helpful. The hotel is very close to the ocean and there are also plenty of restaurants nearby. Access to the freeway is close and convenient also. I was also able to work out through the relationship the hotel has with a local gym.

This is an older property that has tried to update as much as possible. The rooms were clean and several amenities were added. For the price, location to beach, restaurants and shops, a good value. Great view of Morrow Rock from the balcony rooms.

I've stayed at this hotel many, many times in the past 3 years. It is always a pleasure mainly because the staff is outstanding and the view ncredible. Renovations are being made so it can be a bit noisy during the day. n the end, it will be very nice. One drawback, the inner atrium echos terribly so any loud... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times in the past, and it is very comfortable for the price, the breakfast is very good, and the indoor hot tub is big and relaxing! It would be hard to find a better hotel for the price.

We spent the night in the middle of the week and the hotel was full. It is an excellent place, very good location and very friendly staff. We will be back and highly reccommend this hotel. A great value for most anyone.

The hotel location and facility was very nice. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, Wifi, and wine tasting in the evening. The atrium of the hotel caused an echo when people opened/closed doors, talked in the hallway, and banged luggage on the tile floors. I did not sleep well because of the noise. I would only stay there again if I brought... More

The Best Western San Marcos is an excellent lodging choice while visiting the funky, charming, laid-back city of Morro Bay, CA. The San Marcos is an excellent facility with a very well trained staff, appropriate amenities and represents a good value! Be sure to spend the extra money and stay on the third floor facing Morro Bay. You won't regret... More
