You know, it always seems to be the same thing. The people leaving the most turgid, rage filled reviews on a property are usually people you wouldn't even let in the front door of your own home. That said, I have stayed not once, but several times at EL RANCHO in Morro Bay duri

I don't know whether I am happy or not happy with this stay? I made the reservation on the telephone with the front desk. They could not get my Best Western Rewards information correct and I had to get my points after the fact from Best Western itself. The lady who runs the pl

We were pleasantly surprised at this motel. It is older motel on the north end of Morro Bay. Not within walking distance of downtown. Ocean is across the freeway and not easily accessible. Our room was recently remolded, very clean and comfortable. We did bring the two chair

I just checked out of the hotel today (03/09/2018). This is the worst hotel one can ever say. At check inn the lady could not welcome us with a smile and felt as if she is doing a favour. The room was smelling. Also felt in the middle of the nite as if there was someone in our ro

Response from twinsbaybw, Public Relations Manager at Twins Bay Inn
Responded 5 Aug 2018
Dear Perijae304, We are truly sorry for the inconvenience that you may have experienced. We have checked our reservation systems and it seems that you did make your reservation through booking.com and those charges that you are staying are from booking.com. I have learned in the past that it is better to book directly with any hotel so that you are guaranteed the room and no overcharges have been made. We understand that it takes time and effort to earn money, but it was not our intention to double charge or quadruple charge. Please contact Booking.com and see if they can resolve your issue. If you still can't, please contact the hotel and inform them of your dilemma to resolve this matter. Again, we are truly sorry for any inconvenience that you have experienced. Sincerely, The Staff at Best Western El Rancho

Hello, I have a reservation for 07/18-07/21 for our 2nd anniversary (spent our honeymoon in Morro Bay). Been reading reviews and see you have some rooms (200's) with ocean views. We reserved a king smoking room. Do you have a king smoking room in a quiet area with an ocean view? Looking forward to our little getaway (which is rare for us due to finances).
We only have one room that has a king bed and is a smoking room. It is in the 200's building. While you can see the ocean and Morro Rock from our property, we don't have any views from the rooms.
