          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.
