We really enjoyed our view room at this hotel.Room was clean and elevator brought us up to 3rd floor with view of Morro Bay Rock. Enjoyed dinner one block away at Windows on the Water. Did not use the indoor hot-tub, that I had originally thought was a swimming pool. Breakfast was nice. Good location and would recommend getting room...

I stayed for three nights and liked the location very mush. There were many restaurants within walking distance and it was close to The Rock. Morro Bay seemed like a nice city. Very clean and safe. The breakfast was usual continental with waffles and jimmy dean breakfast sandwiches. It was nice to walk to waterfront and watch the Sea Otters....

Excellent location. Old and tired building and room. This place definitely needs an upgrade desperately. Rooms are smaller than average hotel room and bathroom/ shower is cramped. No bathtub provided and it's standing shower only. Breakfast is lacking at best. Dining room is small and cramped. Wifi is unreliable and slow. Carpet in the room was very dirty and had...

Everything about this Best Western Plus was absolutely perfect. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. I enjoyed their happy hour as well as their breakfast. Happy hour consisted of several wines and several cheeses and crackers. Sparkling cider was also available. Breakfast had a very wide variety of items, including waffles. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I would definitely...

Stayed for one night on a tour down the PCH and loved it. They had a complementary wine and cheese pairing which hit the spot before our walk along the coast to watch the sunset. The rooms were very large and had very adequate amenities. The facility as a whole looks slightly dated, but it was clean, well maintained, and...

This is an older location in the heart of Morro Bay. The location was good for my husband and me, as we were in town to visit family in nearby Los Osos. The rooms have been recently remodeled, and are in great shape, including the bathrooms. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We had what they call a "City...

I would stay at this Best Western when I am back in Morro Bay. It is easy access in town and near the shoreline. It is very close to many restaurants and stores. The rooms were clean and the towels were thick and soft. In fact there were enough towels for everyone. The lobby was lovely and very private.
