Enjoyed the 2 nite stay at Christmas. Great location and room. Quite upstairs with a very comfortable King bed. Very nice people with great service. Free continental breakfast w/waffle machine is a very nice touch.

Room- clean and bright. Bed was a little mushy but slept pretty well the three nights we were there. View- we were not in the room much. Room 202 and 204 do not have a view, unless you count the fantastic view through the bathroom window - ironically. Check, but I think 206 and 208 have a spectacular view! Location...

An overnight getaway and we had not been to Morro Bay before. This property is run by a couple who are very friendly and helpful. We visited in the off season, got a room with a king size bed and a view of Morro Bay. The room was very clean and comfortable and the facility is well maintained. The facility...

The room was rather small, but clean and quiet. Beds were clean and comfortable. Parking was right outside the room, But the best part was that this hotel is within easy walking distance of the Morro Bay Embarcadero area where all the restaurants and shops are. Recommended for a short stay.

On the positive side, BW Tradewinds was very clean, the king bed was comfortable and the office personnel pleasant. These features are important to us and therefore the good rating. On the negative side, a number of things stand out, most of which would be difficult to correct. BW Tradewinds is within walking distance of the ocean front, but the...

We stayed here on a last minute road trip. This hotel has a great location in Morro Bay. We did not spend much time there, so it was adequate for what we needed. Room was small, seemed dated and musty, but it was clean. There was a small refrigerator, everything else was basic.

We stayed here for just one night and it was more than adequate for our needs - very close to all the shops, bars and restaurants, and it was clean and tidy. The bathroom needed a little updating and was small, but hey, for the price we paid I've definitely got no complaints. The breakfast area is small, but it...

We thought we were getting a queen size bed and got a double instead. Very cramped upstairs (steep stairs) room. Bed was only place to sit after needing to use the one chair to place suitcase. Breakfast room cramped. Hot tub a joke on top of roof. No parking space when we returned at night. Positive was the friendly staff...

Here at BestWestern we do everything possible in making sure that our guests have a pleasant and memorable stay with us. Your reservation was for a queen size bed. We do not have full size beds here at our Bestwestern. My suggestion for the next time that you book a room at a hotel is to call the hotel directly....

The hotel is easy to find and perfectly located, it's just a short walk down to the bay and beach. Parking was fine, lots of spaces when we arrived. The reception area is small but we were greeted warmly. Our room was upstairs and was surprising large! It had a nice king size bed, OK sized bathroom and separate dressing...

This place was very small. Everything was very cramped. We had to duck under the stairs to get into our room. Parking is very cramped. Breakfast room is very small too. Bathroom was almost on the ridiculous side of small. The location was good for us. You could just walk down the hill to town. Free Wifi . NO pool.....

We appreciate your opinion about us. Sorry that you felt your room was to small. Being on the coast, in a beach town, the hotels here are smaller. Here at Bestwestern Tradewinds we do our best in providing a comfortable stay for our guests. Again sorry that your stay wasn't what you expected. Best Regards, Gina
