The best thing about this hotel is the view from a 3rd floor view room of the Morro Rock. We stayed 2 nights and one night / sunset was beautiful and the early morning light shining directly on the rock was crystal clear and postcard perfect. The second day was very foggy and we could not see the rock so... More

We used the hotel as a stopover going from Monterey to Santa Barbara - and came late evening and headed of early morning. Room booked 5 months in advance to a rate of total 306$ for two queen beds in one room. As such the hotel is nicely located with a view of Morro Rock, and within walking distance to... More

Everything was more than comfortable and the staff was extremely helpful. There was construction going on but they were very careful about not intruding on our stay. Lots of signs and markings to let you know what was going on. I would definitely stay at this Best Western again.

Totally booked this on a whim on hotel tonight. Great choice. Affordable price for a clean room, with basic amenities. Close walk to the bay and morro Rock and excellent breakfast included. Friendly staff, and plenty of parking. Only downfall is the lack of late night meals in the neighborhood. Very quiet neighborhood, mainly of retired folk!

The place was clean and close to the Bay. The room was pricey, but I had points from Best Western. They had a nice wine and cheese. The breakfast was ok. Some of the food was frozen. I think the refrigerator is too cold. Yogurt was frozen, and the bananas were grey. The staff was friendly. I will return. Nice... More

The property is average for above average pricing. You can drive a bit further and find nicer properties. No air conditioning, the furnishings are dated, but clean, the property is cramped, not ocean front, there is an ocean view, over priced for the hotel.

The hotel is in an excellent location in Morro bay. We had a good view of the rock from our top floor room. It is close to the sea front where there are several gift shops, places to eat and just generally wander around in a very relaxed and friendly port. The walk to the Rock is great with boats... More
