The hotel and staff here are very nice and friendly. Only drawback in my opinion is that the lobby where they serve a minimal breakfast is very small. The wine and cheese and crackers in the afternoon is a really nice touch.

This hotel was in a great location, walking distance to restaurants and waterfront. Own balcony with our room and lovely staff that were helpful with things to do. Breakfast onsite was convenient and hotel was very clean. Very much enjoyed our stay. The only downfall was that rates jumped significantly on the weekends, but for the area, this was average,

Effortless check in, staff apologised for renovations, which made no real difference to our stay, rooms nice and large, with good amenities at hand. Got another TV remote devised by spock, and could not get it to work, however watching TV was not what our stay was about. Worth going down for wine tasting etc.., its free, and breakfast, again...

Got a great deal for a Sunday one night only. The hotel is in the process of renovation and we appreciated the new modern decor. Our room was clean and comfortable. Afternoon wine and cheese and breakfast was a bonus. Walking distance to tourist areas and restaurants. We enjoyed clam chowder and Fish and Chips at Dutchman's. The individuals at... More

This hotel makes a good effort to provide a comfortable night's stay. Although the place is older it is clean and there are obvious attempts to be contemporary, such as plug-ins for electronic devices. Features that I enjoyed included providing areas with lounging furniture for visiting in groups outside of the room. There is also an indoor spa that is... More

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.

We appreciate your feedback and take it seriously. While we do have ocean view rooms we do not have ocean front rooms or room service. Our rates do vary according to several different factors. Management has read your review and since we are undergoing a remodel project will take your concerns into account. Nevertheless we wish you happy future journeys.... 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,

Thank you for the feedback regarding your stay. Our ocean view rooms are hard to beat. We apologize for the noise. During the summer months we get a lot of families that come to the Central Coast. We hope you will return and check our progress on our remodel. Happy travels, BEST WESTERN PLUS San Marcos Inn More
