Stayed with a group, then hung around a day on my own. Very accommodating staff, very nice breakfast with protein for a change, not all carbohydrates. Sausage/egg sandwiches, waffles, all the essentials. The room was clean, though showing its age a bit with water damage to the wall outside the walk-in (!) shower, and stucco looking walls. renovation was going...

I thought it was a cute small hotel in a marina community, but I thought the rooms were really dated. Also the bathroom window is int he hall way that other people are walking by to there room. That was a little weird. The staff was very friendly, but I paid over $300 for a night, so I can definitely...

San Marcos Inn was an extremely good choice. My room faced Morro Bay and Morro Rock; there was a balcony with two chairs and an ocean view. Other amenities included a mini-fridge and a small microwave. The shore was two blocks away. There was a variety of choices for breakfast, which was complimentary; for lunch and dinner, there were half...

On a one night trip through Morro Bay we chose this motel after reading the reviews. There is some construction going on! The room size is OK and the bed was confortable. We were on the top floor but still heard foot traffic which sounded like it was coming from above? Lots of noise from next room. Poor soundproofing. Noisy...

Spent one night here over the weekend. We stay in Morro bay fairly often but had never stayed at this hotel.

Let me start off by saying that we really wanted to love this hotel. We have stayed in quite a few hotels in Morro Bay and usually the rooms ends up being on the small size and there are very few amenities.
