Blue Sail Inn
Ranked #11 of 29 Hotels in Morro Bay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 September 2013

3.5 rounded up. The location of the Blue Sail Inn is prime, right over the Embarcadero without having to stay in it. The rooms are large and clean, if not slightly out-of-date. Fridge, microwave, and coffee maker were included. The bathroom was large with a separate sink area (of the four hotels we stayed in this trip, the Blue Sail was the only one with this feature). Our room was along the street, so not very private if we wanted to open the thick privacy drapes. But there was a nice little terrace that we could have enjoyed had we experienced better weather. The continental breakfast was a good one, with pastries, toast, yogurt, cereal, juices, coffee, and tea. The breakfast room was big enough to accommodate the guests. The only downside was Fox News playing in the breakfast room, with a sign that said you couldn't touch the television. Being forced to tolerate such divisive programming while partaking of our breakfast was fairly off-putting (and I'd say the same if it was reversed and they featured MSN): I was on vacation here. One more sensitive than myself *might* have been made to feel unwelcome if their political persuasion did not align with the big screen. My suggestion would be to instead put on some vapid morning show that everyone can watch mindlessly, without the running right-wing commentary. Our vacation was almost over, but I didn't want it to be over that soon. But otherwise a pleasant stay.

Had a brilliant stay at blue sail in. Morro bay is a great stop for the coastal California route. The hotel has great views, is only a 2 minute walk to the sea front and rooms a very good size with everything you need.
Car parking facilities are plentiful and the breakfast in the morning had reasonable choice. I would be really happy to stay here again or recommend to friends.

Stayed for night on our way down the coast - decent enough if a bit expensive - we were in the rooms in the annexe block so new view, Looks like main block would have been much nicer. Good size rooms though could probably do with a bit of a face lift - staff friendly and helpful - average breakfast. Morro Bay was lovely and had lots of nice places to eat - lots of seafood.

We stayed for one night. The location was very good, just off the sea-front. It is a fairly old motel, but was in good nick. The staff were helpful and recommended a good restaurant a few minutes walk away. The room was a good size, the bathroom was fine. We has a nice view across the bay, but we were kept awake for a while by a group of noisy people that included an American lady with one of the most annoying voices ever. Not the hotel's fault though! Breakfast was reasonable - had to be brought back to the room but that wasn't a problem.

Found this hotel when travelling the west coast of California.

Great location for access to Highway 1 and the town of Morro Bay. The waterfront is pleasant (when the wind isn't blowing), the rock is stunning - just ignore the power station.

The rooms were excellent and the breakfast was good.

Room Tip: You can pay more for a sea view, but you really don't have to - it's only a few yards away !

If you get a balcony room the views are great for sipping a glass of local wine (try the Hearst Ranch Merlot) and watching the sunset with the Rock in full view. Accomodations were very good and the staff pleasant. The walls were paper thin however so I hope that is something they correct soon so that you won't here your neighbors conversation like we did. All in all it was a good experience and I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Get the king balcony room

Good location for the embarcadero. Steps away from shopping and dinning options. The rooms good size and clean. Bathroon layout odd as no sink (sink in room).

Recommend the bay view rooms rather than town view...
