“Great Hotel overlooking the bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

The hotel was great and the staff was very accommodating and the hotel is just across the street to the ocean. They do have some rooms overlooking the bay. Breakfast was great, the breakfast area is small and they did give us trays to take our breakfast back to our room or have it around the pool. Great place for the price of the room.

We always stay here on our many trips to Morro Bay. It is clean, comfortable, quiet and has the perfect location. The owners are really friendly and remember us and our preferences from time to time. The beds are comfortable and suit is roomy.The prices are also good and competitive for the area and the different seasons. We highly recommend this lovely hotel.

Hello Nanacycand,

We want to thank you for your feedback and look forward to your next visit so that you can enjoy our new furniture that has just gone in. We do carpet cleanings at least three times a year if not more, however it is understandable that during the peak season there is more people and mess than usual. We are happy to hear that you enjoy our location and that you will be back to see us.

Greeted by a nice front desk lady Christine. Clean room, everything worked, beds comfy. Great location for a walk to Morro Rock, the beach and the embarcadaro. We had a good connection for the wireless internet which is a must for my son and his minecrafting on the Kindle. I would recommend this hotel to someone who wants to be close to the attractions and wants a reasonable rate.

We stayed from July 22 to July 24, 2013. Our senior rate was $117 per night. While the room was comfortable we felt it was overpriced by at least $30.00. There are other towns north of Morro Bay that have non chain hotels I would check out next time. Also, the breakfast was limited and the space was very small. There were only 3 tables each with 2 places. You needed to be there when the doors opened. However, that was not too much of a problem as the doors did not open until 7:30 AM. When I told the manager at the end of our stay I thought this was way too late to open the breakfast area his response was that's what all the motels in Morro Bay do because that's what people want. I was told if I had told them I needed breakfast earlier they would have tried to accommodate me. However, while there was a sign stating the breakfast hours the clerk failed to mention them at check in and my wife and I forgot to ask.

Hello rkap10,

We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your visit with us. We strive for the best and will accommodate our guests as best we can. Our breakfast hours have been the same since we have been here. It is our peak season here on the central coast and the rates are higher at all the hotels here in town. We hope you will allow us another opportunity to meet and exceed your expectations. Please feel free to call us at (805)772-7376.

I always select Best Western because I can usually find one where I want to be in the city I go to and I know I won't be paying excessive prices. I like the continental breakfast that goes with the stay.

I booked this hotel 2 days before driving down from SF to LA based on the more or less half way location of Morro Bay. The nice small town has three huge smoke stacks from a power plant located right in the middle of the town on the waterfront which is the reason for some quite good prices in local hotels. If you're from California you probably know this, if you're from far and were just reading hotel reviews like me it may be a surprise. We had a room facing a fence that was blocking a noisy industrial size air conditioner so even though we had no need for AC and slept with the window open the noise was always there.
Breakfast area is tiny with about 6 or 8 seating spaces but you can take the food to the room. Food was very basic - below the not very high standard in other Best Westerns. We arrived late, had dinner in the rice restaurant row near the harbour, slept and left. Compared to the other places we stayed in during our trip this was the most undistinctive and just plain average one.

Room Tip: I think it was 222 with no view and over a huge AC unit.

Hello PoleApart1,
Thank you very much for your feedback. We strive for excellence and are sorry that you were a little unsatisfied with the room you were in. We are in a tourist location however this is home for many people and the air unit was one of our neighbors. If we had known there was an issue we would have been happy to help. We hope you will give us another opportunity to meet your lodging needs.
Thank you
