    BEST WESTERN EL RANCHO in Morro Bay, CA, was a great place to stay. Although the rooms were small, the motel was recently remodeled; the rooms were immaculate and the bed was comfortable. A free continental breakfast was an efficient way to kick-start our day.

    Hello, I have a reservation for 07/18-07/21 for our 2nd anniversary (spent our honeymoon in Morro Bay). Been reading reviews and see you have some rooms (200's) with ocean views. We reserved a king smoking room. Do you have a king smoking room in a quiet area with an ocean view? Looking forward to our little getaway (which is rare for us due to finances).

    We only have one room that has a king bed and is a smoking room. It is in the 200's building. While you can see the ocean and Morro Rock from our property, we don't have any views from the rooms.
