Arrived at about 1 am. Had to knock to wake up owner. As late as it was, he was really friendly and even said he was worried when he couldn't get a hold of us that evening. If he can be this friendly at that hour, I can only imagine how friendly he is when not awoken at an ungodly hour. We stayed at 4 other BW throughout California this past week. My wife was happily surprised at how they had almost all the breakfast items even in the tiny area they have in the lobby. Would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Room 101 is below the 2nd floor spa but didn't hear any noise coming from it.

We were driving back to southern California, from northern California, it was a long day after a flat tire. We arrived to find that our reservation was for the following night, The staff was very helpful and got a room that night for the same price, even though it was late. They even recommended a great place to eat dinner. The next day we checked out and drove home, only to receive a message from the hotel that I had forgotten my Kindle,( found in the room). The great staff shipped it to me, and I got it the next day, not even 24 hours. Wonderful place to land after a long and exhausting day.

On-line booking is no way to find the best room. One must call to confirm or you are likely out of luck when requesting a highly sought out "view room". So, with only a week reservation lead time, our on-line reservation only netted us a street side room that was very noisy. The kindly manager exhibited good customer service but mentioned that they only had three rooms with views of Morro Rock. He said they are booked months in advance. The on-line photo shows you a great view of the bay and the rock - very misleading. On the plus side of our stay we found the Cal-King bed to be one of the best we've ever encountered. It was truly comfortable. The bathroom was about 5X6 and it was difficult to get in and out since (of course), the door opened inward. Good shower. Road noise was terrible as the "U" shaped hotel collects the street noise. This is not the "Plus" BW hotel and we missed the egg scramble/sausage/home fries/cinnamon bun upgrade breakfast which has been our experience from the "P;us" facilities. Scones and waffles were good though but with 3 tiny tables in the lobby, we had to take our meal to the room.

Advice for Best Western is to sell this facility or (tear it down) because it doesn't provide the view experience that the price-point ought to provide. Instead, build a new hotel that actually faces the bay and views the dramatic geology. This Tradewinds hotel faces the wrong direction! IMO, this is a critical mistake by the builders.

Morro Bay is a really nice place. The marina and commercial docks are right along side the restaurants and shops. They have some serious fishing boats in harbor. It was a good choice to stay there as we left Mission Beach that morning and it was just the right distance. We can't speak highly enough about the walk along the beach there and our experiences in the shops and restaurants. We highly recommend the wine bar. The Hobie kayak store was a bonus and we got to talk shop with the owner.

Don't let this critique change your plans to visit Morro Bay. After all, these are simply our observations and opinions. Morro Bay is really worth the trip but you might shop around by Internet AND phone before booking a room!

Room Tip: If you can't get the view room choose a different hotel and verify the view.

Hello WillandKate_11,

We are sorry that we did not have the ocean view room available for your visit. It is always a good idea to call us directly at (805)772-7376 to ensure your reservation is exactly the way you want it. We understand that our hotel is limited but does offer many great attributes. We hope you will allow us another opportunity to meet and exceed your lodging expectations.

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.

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!
