    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.
