3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed one night at the beginning of August, as a friend and I were planning to visit Hearst Castle the next day. I'm glad that I'd booked balcony rooms with an ocean view for two reasons: the great view of Morro Rock and the chance to catch a bit of ocean breeze...though the latter ultimately proved fruitless, as I had...

I stop at Morro Bay as a half way point. I usually stay at this hotel because they give me points, it has a great view, and it is close to things I like to do so I can just walk to them. I used my points this trip and was dissapointed that if I wanted that great view I... More

We have came to San Marcos for 6 or 7 years, so friendly and welcoming, the hotel, so close to the embarkadaro by the ocean, a block and a half from the down town which is so quaint. Our stay is and always has been such a pleasure. So much to do and see. Lois Propersi

This is the very FIRST we went to the coast and I didn't freeze because of the breeze, I know has been very hot. Because it has been HOT you would think the hotel would have been prepared. The fan ceiling (in the corner - not in the center of the room where it MIGHT have done some good), was... More

The location was great...a short walk to the pier action. As stated by others, there is no air conditioning and though our room had a balcony and door that faced the bay, it was still muggy in our room. And be prepared to be quiet. Within 5 minutes of arriving, we were scolded by our neighbors. We had three young... More

It is nice hotel, clean and comfortable unless you are in the inland side. It has been a long time since I stayed in a hotel where the air was to open your balcony sliding window. My wife roasted and we were at the beach. It would have been cooler at the front of the building

Beware, no air! And, no ground floor rooms. The room was stuffy without much of a breeze and the ceiling fan helped very little. Dated property but the lobby was very nice. Location great for walking down to beach and you can't beat the sunset! We enjoyed their wine and cheese reception at 5:00, which was a very nice touch.... More

Nice place to stay. Many updates in the last year. The lobby, and public areas have all been redone. The rooms can stand a little updating but are average for a Best Western. The Internet speed was very fast and they had mult ports. The rooms facing the water can get hot in the afternoon if not cloudy and there... More

My wife and I were amazed at how nice the rooms were. Friendly staff and a great continental breakfast that worked well for my diabetic wife. The parking is a bit tight if you have a large vehicle. You can walk to the Embarcadero in three minutes from this motel. A walk to the Morro rock would take about 30... More
