Excellent, as always. Within Walking distance of Dorn's (where we had dinner). We always stop there on our way to Monterey fro the Vintage Car Weekend. The rooms are clean and the location is great. What else is there to say?

I debated over the rating (2 stars versus 3 stars) but ultimately, there were certain things that made me give the 2 star rating. The Good: - Customer service at the hotel was great. They were very friendly and anytime I had a question or problem they were very helpful and always friendly - Nice room with big flat screen... More

My husband and I love to travel to the Morro Bay area and this is my favorite place to stay. It's close to everything we like to do like: good restaurants, antique shopping, walking around by the Morro Bay Rock to see the Birds, Otters, and Surfers and more. We go to relax (Soothing Hot Tub,Yummy Wine & Cheese Hour)... More

The staff was extremely cordial and helpful. The hotel is currently going through some renovation but overall is in good condition. My only negative comment is that the room/bathroom does not measure up in size and features to a normal BW Plus. The bathroom is very small and does not have a bathtub (only a shower). Maybe this will change... More

the view was great you could see the ocean, and Morro Rock from our room. The noise was the worst you could hear people above and kids running in the hall all night, The rooms were nice and clean, its older building they are trying to remodel,

The hotel is severely needing updates..there is a musty mouldy smell throughout..basic cleanliness..really unimpressed and feel we overpaid for the room. No air conditioning. Would definitely not return or recommend until the badly needed renos have been completed.

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

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!
