With amenities like wine and cheese tasting from 5 to 7 pm if I remember correctly, this hotel focuses on the little things that make a stay enjoyable. They also have actual shampoo dispensers instead of the little packages that...

We did stayed in a city-facing Deluxe Queen at BW San Marcos on our trip south to LA in mid-December. It is located barely a block from Morro Bay's waterfront, very close to the whalewatching boats, shops and restaurants. The hotel is unique that rooms line each corridor with corridors facing each other on 3 floors and there was minor...

Nice hotel in the center of Morro Bay, close to the water. Very comfortable bed, great WIFI, and good simple breakfast choices. The spa is really a very clean indoor pool. We loved it. And the best part was the staff was gracious and helpful. Thank you. We will be back

We only stayed one night on our trip back down the coast headed back home. The motel is easy to get to, close to the beach area, has covered parking. It is a short walk down to the main resturant area and tourist shops. The motel is very clean and kept up very nicely, almost looks like recent remodel. The...

Excellent service, views, clean, comfortable and it even has a wonderful view of the bay and Morro Rock from the enclosed spa!! The breakfasts and cheese & wine in the evenings are great and they always have a fire in the fireplace in the cozy lobby!! This is the only place I stay when I visit beautiful Morro Bay!!!
