Room was clean and comfortable, also reasonably priced. Pretty much circa 1980's in style. 20 minute wait for the shuttle from the airport. Included breakfast was modest.. Staff was cordial. Definitely an easy place to stay.

Best Western El Rancho is a good choice in Morro Bay. It's a smaller place with convenient, free parking.The host was great and met all our needs immediately. We really appreciated the breakfast choices; beds were comfortable.

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.
