“Good basic hotel in a great location”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We were driving back from southern California to northern California with two children so we didn't want to do the full drive in one day. Morro Bay was 1/2 way so we booked the Best Western Tradewinds and it was great. Like the other reviews said, the staff was very friendly and the room was clean and nicely appointed. It was in a great location - a block from the Marina. The location was also quiet at night. I would definitely stay here again and Morro Bay is a darling seaside town to visit.

Hello SFTraveler516,

We appreciate your kind words and review of our hotel and your stay with us. It is always nice to hear about people experiencing Morro Bay for the first time. It is usually a very nice surprise for visitors, who then turn into regular guests. We will be looking forward to your next visit with us.

We arrived at the hotel at sunset. Wish we had arrived earlier. It is walking distance to the marina to see Morro Bay. There is a power plant close by that impedes the beauty of the marina. We enjoyed a wine tasting place with big comfortable chairs next to the marina. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, front desk staff were helpful, attentive and the continental breakfast was nice. We stayed here on our visit to CA to see Hearst Castle. We would stay here again but check in earlier!

My wonderful boyfriend booked us a room and when we went to check in early, we were able to upgrade to the room with a view of the rock. The crown molding was very pretty, the view was great, and the room was clean. The woman attendant at the front desk (who was also probably the owner) was very attentive, polite, and made us feel welcome. It was near Christmas time so the outside had festive lights. Breakfast was also good, they had a Belgium waffle maker and more food choices than I'd expect for a continental breakfast. I'm also a bit of a germaphobe and I felt really comfortable here. My only complaint was the spa was broken.

Room Tip: If you can upgrade to the rock view rooms, do it! :)

For a good price, great location and peaceful atmosphere this is the place. Always clean and comfortable, nice staff, close to everything. Perfect getaway. This is our home away from home. We highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quiet and peaceful place to clean out the "cob webs" and re-boot.

Located within a short walk of the ocean and downtown Morro Bay. The staff was helpful with a great dinner recommendation. The breakfast was good and the room comfortable. It was nice to stay in an well-kept older style Best Western hotel (with outside doors).

We were looking to stop for the night as we drove down the coast. We found a great place here. The staff were extremely friendly. We found the room to be on the smaller side but it was still very comfortable and very clean. We had everything we needed. The hotel is within walking distance from many small shops and restaurants. We didn't get to spend very much time in Morro Bay but we are going to plan to stay longer on our next trip to see what else there is to discover. We will definitely plan on staying at this hotel again.

Kala and her husband really make us feel at home when we stay here. We used to stay at The Blue Sail, but they changed ownership and jacked their rates sky high. BW Tradewinds is now our place to stay in Morro Bay. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is perfect.
