I stop at Morro Bay as a half way point. I usually stay at this hotel because they give me points, it has a great view, and it is close to things I like to do so I can just walk to them. I used my points this trip and was dissapointed that if I wanted that great view I...

We have came to San Marcos for 6 or 7 years, so friendly and welcoming, the hotel, so close to the embarkadaro by the ocean, a block and a half from the down town which is so quaint. Our stay is and always has been such a pleasure. So much to do and see. Lois Propersi

This is the very FIRST we went to the coast and I didn't freeze because of the breeze, I know has been very hot. Because it has been HOT you would think the hotel would have been prepared. The fan ceiling (in the corner - not in the center of the room where it MIGHT have done some good), was...

The location was great...a short walk to the pier action. As stated by others, there is no air conditioning and though our room had a balcony and door that faced the bay, it was still muggy in our room. And be prepared to be quiet. Within 5 minutes of arriving, we were scolded by our neighbors. We had three young...

It is nice hotel, clean and comfortable unless you are in the inland side. It has been a long time since I stayed in a hotel where the air was to open your balcony sliding window. My wife roasted and we were at the beach. It would have been cooler at the front of the building

Beware, no air! And, no ground floor rooms. The room was stuffy without much of a breeze and the ceiling fan helped very little. Dated property but the lobby was very nice. Location great for walking down to beach and you can't beat the sunset! We enjoyed their wine and cheese reception at 5:00, which was a very nice touch....

Nice place to stay. Many updates in the last year. The lobby, and public areas have all been redone. The rooms can stand a little updating but are average for a Best Western. The Internet speed was very fast and they had mult ports. The rooms facing the water can get hot in the afternoon if not cloudy and there...

My wife and I were amazed at how nice the rooms were. Friendly staff and a great continental breakfast that worked well for my diabetic wife. The parking is a bit tight if you have a large vehicle. You can walk to the Embarcadero in three minutes from this motel. A walk to the Morro rock would take about 30...

This hotel is near the sea and places to eat so is ideally placed for having a look round and eating. Not much parking - it was full when we arrived. The room was nice but quite hot as there is no A/C but we were fine. The rooms are clean etc but the bathroom needs an upgrade and the...

Paso Robles, California
Reviewed August 1, 2015

Loved that a hotel with a good price was within walking distance to the Embarcadero and all the shops and restaurants. Usually, not having A/C in Morro Bay shouldn't be a problem, because the weather is so mild. However, the first day we were there, it was particularly humid. So we didn't sleep very well that night. The following night,...
