“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

We stayed one night. This hotel is within 2 blocks of the wharf which includes a view of Morro Rock, shopping and restaurants. Nice neighborhood. We saw seals right in the harbor. Its a short drive to Morro rock which is a protected area for the Peregrin Falcon (and we saw them). Staff had cheese and wine on our arrival and were very friendly.

Great location, close to the Embarcadero and highways; comfortable room, but no A/C so upgrading to an oceanfront room helps - plus, the oceanfront rooms on the third floor have an amazing view of the "rock."

Beautiful hotel 2 blocks off the beach. We slept with the door to the private balcony (comes with EVERY room) wide open. Friendly staff that was very helpful. We couldn't have asked for anything more.

We had a "couple getaway" in Morro Bay, California for just one night and found the San Marcos to be clean, comfortable, well located, and an excellent value.Price included a good breakfast and an evening wine and cheese buffet. Would recommend it to anyone who seeks an excellent experience at a reasonable price.

We were a little taken back when we first arrived. This is an older property, the courtyard is rather rugged to say the least. Garages are available for parking right on the ground floor which is great. You can unload the car then just walk into the building all under cover. The lobby and breakfast room is small and old but the employees really make the most of what they have. The rooms are old but clean. The 2 guys that have the wine and cheese in the evenings really know how to through a party. They have 3 types of great wine, different cheese and snacks and they keep everything replenished.
The breakfast is really good, lots of choices and the woman that runs it never stops cleaning and stocking.
The location is great, one block to the ocean and shops.

Our 2nd time here this year. We did not consider any other hotel because of it's location. 2-blocks to embarcadero or movie theater, 5min drive to golf, fishing or family friendly beaches (bring own food and drink to beaches). Cambria and Hearst Castle 30min drive north. We think it's a great place to stay.

We stayed at the Best Western in Morro Bay for a get away. It was in a great location 2 blocks from the water front and lots of great restaurants. The rooms were clean and the front desk staff was helpful and friendly. The evening wine and cheese reception in the lobby was a nice bonus. The breakfast was alright but a nice perk. I would stay there again if we were in Morro Bay.
