We spent a couple of weeks touring west coast in various motels & this one had the most helpful reception staff of all. We turned up out of the blue on labour day weekend & they bent over backwards to help us & offered us a room. We checked out a few other motels in the area before accepting and the free wine & cheese (5pm to 7pm) was the bonus that swung it for us. What we did not know was that if you stay 3 or more nights you can be offered a 30% discount so 3 nights virtually for the price of two, A previous review mentions the fact the reception was closed and this is because it closes between 11pm & 7am so if you are expecting to get there then take note of the management response. We had no problems parking & the hotel was full ( that's labour day weekend for you). Breakfast was more than adequate with as much as you can eat with hot & cold selections. The lack of AC may be a problem in the sea view rooms but we had a back room on a hot weekend & did not even resort to the ceiling fan. Reception staff will also provide extra fans on request. The rooms were a good size with a good size fridge too & we slept well. The spa pool was big enough for 3 swimming strokes & we had it to ourselves most days. The location is very good with just a short walk downhill to morro bay promenade where there are plenty of restaurants or a short walk uphill to the main street where there are cafes, take aways & liquor/food shops. You can also catch the tram bus when it runs ( poss only weekends) just along the street & there are 3 routes. One along the beach, another up to the park & a third that will take you north down route 1.
We chose Morro Bay over Pismo Beach because it was a little cheaper & I thought it would be a bit quieter but it was a bit too quiet for me which is why the hotel got 4 not 5 stars. To give an example of how good the staff were, I had trouble getting the TV to work one night & one of the girls came up to the room immediately & tried her best to get it working including calling the manageress. When that failed they gave us the keys to another room.but two minutes later after fiddling some more we got the TV working so did not have to use the other room. We saw her the next day off duty in a local shop & she was still apologising. The manageress also did the same. How often do you get reception in a hotel trying to fix tour tele? I can recommend this place & if you spend an hour drinking the free wine & eating cheese each evening you will know why it hits the spot.
