Best Western El Rancho
Only stayed for one night but found the hotel and it's staff impeccable. Check in ended at 9pm but with my wife and I running late we rang ahead to inform them we'd arriving later than 9. They could not have been more helpful and arrangements were made to enable us to check in late. Wonderful.

Nothing special but very comfortable
The locstion of thr hotel, although comfortable, is very close to the road and not in Morro Bay itself. This motel is very nice, room comfortable and clean. Good service from the stuff, laundry facilities vere conviniant.

Nice but over scented
Ordinary motel. Well maintained and clean. Over use of scented cleaner? Heavy perfume odor even after airing the room all day.

Couple’s weekend
Room was a little small and simple but clean. Location was perfect. You’re not in the middle of downtown but close enough. Breakfast was good and had a good variety. Would stay again.
