This hotel is a great value. The bed is comfortable; the breakfast is great; and we always love the hot tub! It is an unusually big hot tub and in-doors so that you can use it regardless of the weather. You cannot beat the price for what you get.

We stayed here 1 night and were very happy. We only paid $77 for the night! They were sold out of kings, so the rate was for 2 queen beds.

The hotel is in a good location and we were able to walk 1 block to dinner.

The staff was very, very nice! They have a nice free happy hour with local wines and that was an added bonus!

Breakfast was included, but we wanted something a little more substantial, so I don't have feedback for breakfast.

First stay at this hotel and it was very nice. Got a great price for an ocean view. Waking up each morning with Morro Rock outside the window was just too nice. I'd probably stay here again. Perfect for a weekend getaway. The only problem that we had was the typical hotel problem (at least in my experience): the guests in the next room. Other than some drunk people arguing at 1:00 am, not a bad place. Still a Best Western fan.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay. Our ocean view rooms do provide a nice way to wake up. Our apologies for the noisy neighbor. We look forward to seeing you again on your next weekend get-away.

We stayed overnight on 1/28/14 at San Marcos and had a delightful stay. Its a couple of blocks off the main boardwalk and beach, near our favorite restaurant. We celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary on 1/28 and had been building up a need and desire to get out of the ultra-dry, smoggy San Joaquin Valley where we've lived the past 24 years or so, away to the Coast for a day or two and the motel choice was perfect. It was dry also in Morro Bay as elsewhere in California this winter but the air was cool and breezy and a few miles up the coast is Cayucos, an arts colony, and farther up a wonderful elephant seal mating, breeding and birthing area which was in full swing and worth the trip in itself. But, just staying at the San Marcos in that location would have been worth the trip. Economical, wonderful staff, very nice room, with a town-, not ocean-view, but that was charming and very quiet. Very relaxing and invigorating stay, including the great morning breakfast where I made great waffles without messing everything up. Highly recommended any time of the year. We usually go over once a year or so in the summer when the heat is so bad in the Valley but the winter is great since the prices are better and crowds much less.

The Best Western Plus San Marcos Inn in Morro Bay is centrally located, close to shops, restaurants on the Embarcadero. The staff at the Inn is very helpful and friendly. The room was quiet and comfortable. Wine and cheese is served in the afternoon - nice touch.

Great value for a clean and pleasant hotel. Pretty views of the bay from the balcony. The rooms were clean and compact but spacious enough. The breakfast variety was good and consisted of waffles, hard boiled eggs and breakfast sandwiches. The afternoon wine and cheese was a nice touch. The location was ideal being only a two minute walk from all the action.

Very impressed with the level of customer service. The clerk that checked me in was Michael and he was a great example of how to treat a guest. The rooms had an old fashion elegance to them and were very relaxing and comfortable. I had a great view of Morro Bay and recommend room 333. They have a wine and cheese social and that was very nice. I go up this way every year and diffinatly will be staying here.
