“Nice and friendly!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We stayed there with our 2 kids last week and the place is great. The room is not very big, but clean and it even has a DVD player! You can borrow movie at the front office! The pool is has a fence that stops the winds Nd is heated therfore the kids can swim even if the weather is cool. Their are outside table, a BBQ and a swing. The breakfast is nice and complete and easy to access. In all, a great find for our trip to CALIFORNIA,

Highly recommend this hotel and the staff is beyond friendly and will go above the call of duty to make sure your stay is a great one! Our room was just as pictured with super comfy beds. Free movie rentals for your room - just can't say enough good things. Close to 101 freeway and downtown without the traffic & noise. Can't wait to go back!

My friend and I stayed at Best Western El Rancho for a girls' weekend. It is the perfect location! We were a short drive to all of our fun planned destinations. Room was very clean and had a warm homey feel. Very friendly staff too. I highly recommend!

I can't describe how amazing the Best Western El Rancho in Morro Bay is!! My family and I love to stay there as we feel it is our home away from home. It always has a very clean environment, friendly and helpful staff, and my boys love the continental breakfast!! The next time you are at the coast be sure and look this place up and plan to stay for a while! You won't regret it!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great!!

We stayed here one night [family of four] and were very pleased with the amenities and room. This motel is very, very clean and the room rate includes breakfast [continental].

Located on the way out [going north] of Morro Bay there is a heated swimming pool, small grocers nearby and the fantastic Taco Temple a short walk up the road for dinner.

I would highly recommend this motel to all travelers be they families, singles or business people.

Room Tip: Advanced purchase rate was just on AUD$100 for the night including breakfast!

My family of 5 stopped here for a night on our way up to San Francisco.

I really liked how this little hotel was rather spread out, I think there were three one story sections. It was nice to park right in front of our door and not feel like we're literally on top of each other!

The room was basic, but clean. There was a pool outside which was heated. My kids loved that!

This is more on the north side of the rock - away from the boats and shops. I enjoyed this as it was only a 2 minute drive to the dunes and beach. My family and I would rather play in the sand than window shop!

The staff was nice and had a good sense of humor.

We ate at the restaurant located in the same parking lot, "Maya." It was pretty good but a little overpriced.
