What a pleasant surprise. This was a great place to stay. Everyone was so nice & helpful. Breakfast had a good selection. Great wine, cheese & crackers as the evening reception. All rooms have ma balcony which I really enjoyed. Short walk to the Embarcadero. Lots of shops & eating places. I highly recommend San Marcos Inn.

The Best Western Plus in Morro Bay was in a great location, however the property is a little worn. Staff were very welcoming, and included was a little wine & cheese reception in the late afternoon - this was nice and we met some of the other travellers staying at the hotel. The rooms were clean and quite large -... More

This is an annual trip for 8 of us and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this location. We appreciate the discounted rates as we are all seniors on limited incomes. We were especially happy with all the improvements made in the reception area and especially in our rooms. We hope to return next year, hopefully with a larger group.

Very noisy (walls thin) from neighboring rooms as well as seating area outside the room. Strange set-up with bathroom windows into hallway. Pool/spa not working. Nice afternoon wine/cheese service. Continental breakfast was very weak.

We apologize for not meeting your expectations. We try to provide something for everyone with our breakfast selection. Our spa was closed for two days as we were applying a non-slip coating to our spa's tile floor. Nevertheless we wish you future pleasant journeys. BEST WESTERN PLUS San Marcos Inn More
