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.

I will definately stay again! Outstanding Caring staff! We forgotten my wife's earrings and the Hotel Staff found them, called me and mailed them to me. Honesty and integrity. Purpose of our trip was to visit family and enjoy the area.

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

We spent 3 nights here. It is one block from the embarcadero and walking distance to everything. The hotel is very clean and has large rooms. We had a queen bed, corner table, two chairs, flat screen TV and a balcony with two chairs. Unfortunately our balcony overlooked roofs. We faced east. If spending more than one night, it will...

No need to use your car while staying at the San Marcos Inn. This small hotel is a block from the main drive where the shops and restaurants are located.

This hotel is located about a block from the Embarcadero. The restaurants and shops are located there. You can easily walk from the hotel to the shops. Parking is a little tight at the hotel.
