“A good find on a random trip.”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

The hotel has nice large rooms, decorated like something from Murder She Wrote era, then again Morro Bay is almost kinda like a Cabbot Cove. We stayed here on a Monday and after travelling around the town, checking out around 6 or 7 other hotels first we happened upon this little gem. The hotel had everything we needed, plus a few extras, fridge, fireplace, four-poster bed, big tub (with a strange window that looks back into the bedroom), free wifi, breakfast (while it was only okay) and cable tv. Visited the bars around the town and the locals are very friendly and up for chats and pints. Met some very nice people there. All in all while the Ascot suites aren't perfect they do try very hard to be better. Morro bay is very small and this hotel, like most hotels in the town, within walking distance of everything.

Could be fun for a kinda retro style romantic getaway.

Room Tip: Other reviews suggest some rooms have noisy A/C outside the windows, so ask first if mild noise keep...

Why is this called Ascend? Should be called Descend, there is no pool or gym or hottub and no it's not on the water. The breakfast is not even as good as a Comfort Inn. The rooftop garden/deck has a nice view of urban decay and trash.
The interior as others have mentioned is dated to about 1988 and done by a grandmother.
Don't bother with their free wine in the afternoon it's cheap and awful .

Perfectly located for walking around Morro Bay harbor. Just two blocks from the main strip you can easily get to where you want to go without a car. The free wine tasting and breakfast were both great and made staying there a plus. The decor of the room is a bit outdated, but that really is our only complaint. Overall a pleasant stay and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms next to employee only areas if you don't want an early wake up.

This hotel is one of the more classy ones in Morro Bay, and their breakfast is to die for! The full scope of food includes everything imaginable and nothing is in short supply. The staff are courteous and they even lend you free DVD's! It is located in a very nice spot within walking distance of the seafront, and the restaurants down towards the Bay!

This was a very nice hotel within walking distance to the water and restaurants - very good location. Cute room with comfortable bed. Adequate breakfast in the morning. Wine and snacks in the evening was a nice plus. Very nice to be able to open the windows and hear the seagulls and sea lions. I look forward to staying here again.

Poorly maintained-noisy running toilet, moldy window sills. Could hear neighbors walking/talking through ceiling/walls. Positive-decor is retro 2000's, windows open for ventilation, basic breakfast, covered parking, close to tourist area.
