We stayed in the Econo Lodge in Morro Bay for 1 night during our road trip from San Francisco to San Diego. We chose Morro Bay simply that it was equi-distant between Monterey and Santa Barbara. The Econo Lodge was a pleasant surprise - very clean and quiet. I was surprised to read some poor reviews on here so thought... More

Definitely the most horrible hotel we stayed at during our trip in California! And the most expensive as well! The place was depressing. It was dirty (stains on the sheets, chairs and carpet) and it was loud (cars and other guests). The only kind of good thing was that there was hot water for a shower! And the breakfast was... More

We were told pets allowed, after reservation made..she mentioned 15.00 fee...we took our little dog anyway, at the desk, I saw on the sign in, No Pets Allowed, too... More

This was a clean hotel and one of the cheapest ones here. A great location for the Pacific views, however, I question paying extra for the views as there are none from the hotel. The internet connection was good and the staff were lovely. I would recommend this hotel for somewhere to stay.

Econo Lodge is actually quite a nice little place. We stayed in a bottom floor and the people upstairs had a child that kept bouncing around but we managed to make the most of it. The price in the winter was a great rate but in the summer time its way too overpriced. I'd rather pay that same summer rate... More

I asked for a non-smoking room and was given one that smelled like smoke, yet no ashtrays. That smell is hard to get rid of. I didn't feel like bothering with complaining, but the smell and the traffic noise bugged me, and the microwave didn't work. Ear plugs are a must here. I did see one big dog being taken... More

Stayed here 1 night when touring California for 3 weeks. The room was basic and looked the worse for wear. We had an upper floor room with a view of Morro rock. It's in a good location. We could walk to the town, the harbour and restaurants etc. The breakfast was dreadful - pre-packaged pastries which were so bad we... More

This hotel was easy to find. With plenty of parking spaces. Right outside our window you could see Morro Rock. But it was overcast that day so it was hard to see the whole thing. The manger was very nice when we checked in. He also made sure to inform us where the continental breakfast would be. Some hotels leave... More

Families and vacationers beware please...Was treated poorly by the hotel manager. He kept acting like he was doing me a favor and treated me without any respect. He ridiculed me in front of my significant other when I requested a cleaner room. The hotel is cheap and dirty. My nonsmoking room wreaked of smoke (no disrespect to the smokers) -... More
