Had a wonderful view of Morro Bay and Morro Rock. Room a little small, but clean and very comfy bed. Nice to have free internet, microwave and refrigerator in room. They have free wine and cheese in early evening. Walking distance to Embarcadero and restaurants.

We got an ocean view room, and the view was awesome. The staff was very helpful in every way, providing reservations for Hearst Castle on a busy weekend, extra towels, and helpful advice about the local businesses. I checked out other hotels in the area while there, and this was the best one. Also, they had soap and shampoo dispensers... More

The Best Western Plus San Marcos Inn, Morro Bay has a nice small and friendly feel to it. The beds are very clean and comfortable, linens are nice. The balcony, while small, is a nice spot for two people to enjoy the view and relax with a cup of coffee. This Inn is in walking distance to all of downtown... More

It is an older property with its own charm--open the sliding door-breath the fresh air and enjoy Morro Bay-It is a beach type of feeling--nothing glitzy--just a good bed--good TV --wireless internet and hosted cheese and wine after 5--this is a town with aging hotels and no reason to change. I have been staying here for many years.

Came to San Marcos Inn with our grand children so they could experience Morro Bay as we have in the years past. Perfect location for Hearst Castle and Montana de Oro State Park and other attractions. After wards they relaxed in the spa. Short walk to restaurants, shopping and candy/taffy shops which they loved. Really glad that we we're able... More

We accepted the price and immediately offered cheese and biscuits and wine ,which is offered early evening and it was very nice.

Very nice, clean hotel. Would not recommend staying on the "city view" side of the hotel if it is a sunny day as the sun comes in the room very brightly in the morning, making it very stuffy unless the black-out curtains are drawn, again leaving no air circulating. The same would be true on the other side in the... More

Went to Morro Bay to travel up the coast to SF. Would highly recommend the Best Western in Morro Bay. It is very comfortable and real close to the harbor. The staff is very nice and will help you in every way.
