Our 2nd story room had a picture-perfect view of "The Rock." We were 3 blocks away from the waterfront that includes lots of shopping and restaurants. If you don't want to/can't walk that far, there is the "Hungry Fisherman" restaurant around the corner. It was delicious and reasonably priced. A continental breakfast was included at the hotel -- it was...

We stopped over in Morro Bay when we went up the coast and stayed in the Econo Lodge for 1 night. It was more than adequate place to stay. The room was basic but very clean. Spacious enough for 4 people (2 adults and 2 kids). Friendly staff. Toast/muffins and coffee available for breakfast. Unfortunately, our room was close to...

The rooms are clean and smoke free. However, the bathrooms are small. If you are handicapped don't plan on staying here, no room to turn around with a walker or wheel chair. The commode is too low to the ground for handicapped persons. Make sure that you have your payment in check with this manager.

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...

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...

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...

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...
