    The location and free breakfast were great.

    The room smelled horrible, the bed was super uncomfortable, and it wasn't worth the money I paid.

    Exceptional

    The room decor was awesome. The beds were very comfortable. Free parking. Friendly staff made us feel welcome. Clean rooms. Expanded hearty breakfast was excellent - the best hotel orange juice ever! Location was great - only 5 minutes from Cal Poly. Room was well worth the price.

    The Wifi in the hotel room did not work.

    It was convenient for our itinerary, and the staff was nice. It was a fairly typical motor lodge.

    Broken hair dryer and dated decor - needs some updating

    Fabulous

    The room was clean and roomy. The reception staff was friendly and made the extra effort to put us in a room on the lower level. The breakfast was a step above the normal 'continental' in that it included hard boiled eggs, sausage patties and potatoes.

    We were moving our daughter back to Cal Poly and as such requested a room on the lower level to accommodate the shuffling of stuff. This is a motor lodge in that the vehicles park in front of the lower rooms. When guests start packing and leaving in the morning it can be a bit noisy. I am sure things are better on the upper level.

    Very good

    The breakfast is so good when compare to others. Would consider come back for next trip if the price is reasonable.

    The appliances are too old and also too noisy. Can not sleep well when hear for whole night.

    Very good

    It's an old motel looking place where you park in front of your room door but once there the room nice, clean, art with newish carpet, nice funiture, good vibe, free dvds for borrowing in lobby, great breakfast except the SunnyD, you can tell the owners care about providing a good experience

    Front desk staff was very helpful.

    Rooms were not very clean and decor was cheap. A little too "budget" for the price. Free breakfast was stale.

    Exceptional

    The lobby's decor was beautiful and comforting. The pools atmosphere was very nice and the temp perfect.The complimentary breakfast was great, not just packaged rolls with juice like some locations. My room was so spacious and considering the price I was very surprised. I usually stay at Morro Beach for more money with less quality, but anymore it will be here.

    Superb

    I liked the staff, cleanliness and amenities.

    The windows did not lock, which was worrying, and the window in the bathroom opened to a view of a junk pile and feral cats.

    The armchair was old. Everything else was new and clean.
