Love this Hotel, except need AC units. Did not sleep well. Bed was also to soft not good on our backs. Staff was friendly. When they get AC units I think this hotel will be a great price and will have it all.

Great location for waling to restaurants, waterfront park, wine tasting (3), boat rentals, aquarium, etc. All that Morro Bay has to offer. The tailend of a tropical storm had just passed through so it was hot (high 70's/low 80's) and humid so the lack of air conditioning was the only drawback.Because it was hot it was noisy due to people...

First of all, know that there is no air conditioning in this hotel. Unless you can get a west facing room, it's going to be uncomfortable in the room. Tired and needs work. As for the wine in the afternoon, nice for them to provide but quality lacking in their selections. Only good part going for this hotel is its... More

We arrived late and check in was quick and easy. Our room was on the second floor and we loved the balcony and view of Morro Bay. Our kids had breakfast and really enjoyed the choices there. We will be back!

The Best Western Plus San Marcos Inn is trading on Spanish motif curb appeal and features balconies and sheltered stall parking. A weekend visitor will hear street noise at night if sea breeze is desired. The sea breeze is best on the West facing rooms. East facing rooms get a cross breeze that starts in the enclosed hotel lobby and... More

Caring staff upon check-in. The Hotel is very close to the bay and the views are great! Though the room had no AC, it was not really needed this time of year. Loved the cheese and wine evening at the hotel. They allow a later check-out in the event that you needed to sleep in a little longer.

This motel is mediocre at best. Customer service is almost non existent. Screen door fell off our patio door located basically in front of the office and no one considered repairing it for 3 days. Empty beer bottles left in elevator lobby fot two days, were still there when we checked out. Less than helpful front desk staff.

We enjoyed our stay at the San Marcos Inn. The room was comfortable, quiet, and a quick walk in two different directions to the quaint shops that make up Morro Bay. We found this on Hotelcoupons.com, which gave us a great room rate, and we were quite pleased with our experience.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Great bay view, easy walking distances to shopping and restaurants, and a fun indoor pool area. Very affordable. The front desk was really busy, but the staff zipped through and the wait was not too long. The interior of the hotel seems a bit dated, it's an atrium style, but the rooms were... More
