“Perfectly located, reasonably priced.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

My wife and I stayed one night at the Blue sail Inn on our way for a weekend in San Francisco. We had stayed in Morro Bay before but never at this hotel. But because of the great location we thought we would try it. I reserved a room with an ocean view and we were not disappointed.

Upon check-in we were greated with a smile. The staff were very friendly and willing to answer questions. Accommodation-wise, the room was very comfortable and extremely clean. The view was as advertised with a great shot of the Rock. The hotel is situated right above the Embarcadero with all of the shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. It is also right next to our favorite Morro Bay restaurant, Dorns. The price was comparable to pretty much any decent hotel in the same general area. You can find cheaper inns but they will be a bit inland without the view and, in my experience, without the cleanliness.

On minor issue, the water pressure in the shower leaves something to be desired. Fortunately both of us have relatively short hair but if you have long thick hair you may be rinsing for a while. But other than that, a great place to stay. Highly recommended whether for one night or for a weekend, I really don't think you do better.

Room Tip: Without a doubt request a room with an ocean view. They also have rooms with balconies as well.

Look beyond the decor and you'll find a spacious, spotlessly clean, welcoming hotel.

Super value, free parking, free wifi, free breakfast and wonderful views of The Rock. No uncomfortable beds in our room!

Receptionists were very friendly. Glad we decided to overnight in Morro Bay rather than Pismo Beach.

Room Tip: Sea view is a must!

We payed the extra cost for a balcony view of the rock. Was well worth it. Nice ,clean, comfortable room. Can walk places easily. The breakfast can be skipped, there are good places close by. Don't go to Kitty's though, the service could not have been worse.

We were scrambling to find a place to stay in Morro Bay after our other plans changed. Found this place online and thought the value $423. with tax was a great deal for the area for 3 nights. It's located just a block from the embarcadero - walking distance to many restaurants and shopping. We had a partial view, which from our private balcony gave us a perfect view of Morro Rock and the smokestacks. Sunsets were perfect from where we were. Beds were comfortable as we're the pillows. Shower was fine - pressure was good and didn't go hot/cold on us. The room could get pretty stuffy with no AC, but ha a screen door off the balcony which helped. I did find some hair on the bathroom floor, which I just cleaned up with one of their towels and threw in the corner. I recommend wearing socks or flip flops while in the room too, but I do that in all hotel rooms. I would recommend this place and I would stay here again.

This is the 2nd time we've stayed in this hotel. We love the location and the friendly staff. But most of all, we love that the rooms don't smell old and moldy. It shows they care about the upkeep of their hotel. It may be old, but it's charming. The only downside is the bed. Uncomfortable but nothing a little tylenol pm can't fix. I'd rather sleep in a clean room than a good bed that smells dirty and old.

Room Tip: To avoid parking in the street, ask for a room across the main building. Your car will be safely tuc...
