I have used this hotel before and will continue to return. The rooms are clean, have coffee/tea maker, frig, iron, blow, dryer, and even soap/shampoo. The spa is a great addition. Nice breakfast to get the day started. Walking distance from everything. You can hear the seals....Wake up to the Morro Bay rock. Short drive to beaches and other sites...

Nice place to stay. Room was nice and clean and the location was very nice. You are only a block away from the shops at the shore which is great. Wonderful variety of breakfast items. There are even Jimmy Dean Breakfast sandwiches in the fridge during breakfast. (wouldn't have seen them if I hadn't read about it in a different...

Clean and tidy with great service from the team. With complimentary breakfast, spa, business centre and a stones through away from the main restaurant strip in Morro Bay, it was a perfect time. The 12pm check out was great too and meant I was able to spend the morning out and around Morro Bay.

We have stayed here several times in the last two years. It is about a block and a half from the marina,stores and restaurants. We paid extra for a room with a view of the rock and the ocean. When the fog lifted we had a very good view from the whole room. They have a wine and cheese gathering...

Rooms were very clean, staff was wonderful and very accommodating. It was mine and my husbands honeymoon and it was very special. Location was perfect, room was really nice considering the Bridal Suite was already taken by the time we made our reservation...I would definitely recommend this place!

With only a short walk to the Embarcadero shops and restaurants, this hotel is well-situated. The rooms are lovely, and quiet. Two negatives: parking is cramped and limited (forget bringing anything bigger than a Suburban) and the wifi is spotty enough to be unusable (at least in my room at the end of the hall).

We are still staying here at the hotel, so this review may change depending on how our trip ends. The Best Western website promises that this is a non smoking hotel, yet I have had to shut our balcony door several times because of cigarette smoke. People smoke on the balcony of their rooms and do not think about others...
