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...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 January 2017

I especially enjoy the view of Morro Rock from this hotel and the balconies. The wine and cheese tasting in the evening make for a nice relaxing time after a long day. I was thrilled to see a "moon set" behind the rock this trip. There was a halo over it. Awesome!

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...

Having never stayed in Moro Bay before, we wanted a room with a view of Moro Rock and the bay. Our third floor room at the San Marcos Inn was perfect for that. It was an unexceptional but adequate room. An added extra was the wine and cheese served from 5-7 pm in the detached lobby. The included breakfast was...

A family visit to see great grandchildren and family in Morro Bay and other friends in the area. My family has lived in MB for over 35 years and I and my husband always looked forward to our visits there.

This hotel is more like a converted motel. The lobby is detached from the rooms. The rooms open into a center atrium and it feels rather motel-ish. I had the misfortune to visit during a winter storm and the power went out for about 3 hours. I was able to make the most of it spending some time in the...

Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay with us. After contacting our local Harbor Patrol office we discovered the fog horn blows 24/7 365 days a year because there is no way of predicting when fog will return to harbor. Depending on which way the wind is blowing there are times when it can't be heard. We apologize for...
