    « Central Coast Escape »

    My wife and I were looking for a quick get away to the coast with some friends. We found the Tradewinds to be clean, comfortable, and well located. We were in easy walking distance to the Embarcadero and many nice restaurants. The free breakfast provided an adequate start to each day. The best thing about this motel is the staff. They were eager to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We would definitely stay again. The only reason I didn't mark it Excellent is because some of the rooms are rather small and are without any kind of view.

    « Location, location, location. »

    A very comfortable, quiet and very clean hotel, with all the amenities one would wish for - excellent wi-fi, a good and varied breakfast, good coffee and welcoming owners. We didn't try out the jacuzzi but made good use of the sun deck beside it. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from lots of restaurants and shops. There is even a Country Kitchen adjacent to the hotel if you feel peckish - the food there is very good. It was very easy to find from 101. We would definitely recommend this BW. Our stay was only 4 nights - wish we could have stayed longer. Also loved all the window boxes and planters, which made it seem so much more homely.

    « Quick Overnight »

    We stayed for one night, 2 adults, 2 kids. Room was clean, area was quiet, bed was comfortable and close to the Embarcadero. Only negative is that it is a small room (and we didn't have any conditioner in our room) but we'd stay here again.

    A comfortable very convenient visit to the Bay. Felt right at home with a very good breakfast and great service . Never had to start the car until departure time. The right amount of exercise while shopping, eating, sightseeing, and listening to music.

    « Nice but can't give it more stars. »

    Nice older but updated motel. Very clean and comfortable. Wish we had been able to stay longer so as to enjoy the local scene. Would have had a perfect stay other than, our room was common wall to the office where just on the other side is the furnace/boiler or something. Starting around midnight the sound of pipes popping as they warmed and cooled was so loud, I got no sleep. I mean NONE!! When I informed the front desk, yes they apologized but absolutely no compensation was offered. Only the explanation of it being an older building. How unsatisfactory! Beware of this room!

    « Travel Agent Sister Recommended »

    My starter was kind enough to lead to old friends traveling together to this spot. Sandy and Danny are charming hosts and attended immediately to any request we had. It was clean and quiet, a block from Morro Rock and the Embarcadero. We also enjoyed good coffee and the continental breakfast. It was such a pleasant experience and location, we decided to stay two nights. Although we did not utilize it, there's a rooftop spa that would be nice under the stars.

    « Well run lovely little motel »

    Stayed a couple of nites in Morro Bay on a driving holiday from London, England. We were charmed by this lovely town and were very pleased we chose this Best Western to stay in. Sandy and her husband on reception were very welcoming and friendly. Rooms were clean, a little on the small side by the time all the cases were brought inside but well equipped with good Wi-fi, microwave and coffee machine. Breakfast was simple but nice with do-it-yourself fresh waffles and tasty breads, pastries and muffins, yoghurt and fruit, coffee and juice. Just a short walk to the harbour and a good choice of restaurants (most were fish-focussed being by the sea). A lovely, if short stay. Thank you.

    « I feel Best Western Tradewinds is wrong. »

    Kala Patel told me that she is the manager at BW Tradewinds in Morro Bay and her decision is final. She also told me that if I did not want to have any problems (i.e. refusing to refund a charge for a room after a 48 hour cancellation) we should only make our reservation directly with the hotel". She said.."companies like Expedia are only interested in collecting their commission so we won't reverse the charge..we hold the room even though the reservation is cancelled because if we refuse to cancel because our policy is 72 hours (even though most hotels are 24 hours) the customer might shows up if they know we won't give them a refund." Geovany at Expedia was offended by her comments and did the right thing. He refunded our money even though BW refused to refund Expedia their money. I called BW customer service and they stated that in all things, they side with their managers over companies like Expedia.

    « Perfect Room »

    This is the perfect place to stay as it is a short walk to shopping and restaurants. The room while on the small side was perfect for the two of us. It was clean upon arrival and housekeeping did an excellent job while we were out and about. We are members of BW Rewards and the stay was complimentary but shouldn't (and didn't seem to) matter as arrival and departure were equally pleasant experiences. The breakfast was a nice treat to start our day - not too much but fresh and good. I was pleasantly surprised that the room has as many TV channels as we have in our house. Tall people will love the shower. :)

    « Nice Little Place »

    Nice little place to stay in Morro Bay. Of course being a member of BW Rewards, our stay was "complimentary". The room was small but adequate; refrigerator and microwave was a nice feature. No parking fees; location was acceptable although if you wanted to hit the "downtown spots" it would take a walk. All said, our stay was comfortable.

    « 2 Blocks to the waterfront »

    The managers of this hotel were extremely friendly and helpful during our stay. It is a short 2 block walk to the waterfront with many shops, restaurants and picture taking opportunities right there. The room was very comfortable with a recently remodeled look.

    « Wonderful place to stay! »

    Staff were very friendly and helpful in giving us some dining ideas. Although the breakfast area is small, there was a large assortment of items to eat. VERY close to the pier; you could walk! We would stay here again.

    « Best Western, Best Location and Service »

    I would stay here again. It's in a great location; walking distance to shopping, food, and pier. We walked down the street to the Pier and saw sea otters (one with a baby) playing in the water. Sandy was very helpful and friendly and even provided tips for our "road trip". Breakfast was nice; even provided make your own waffles which were very good. Hotel is clean, safe and reasonably priced. I would stay here again and hope to come back in the future to see more of Morro Bay.

    « Cozy, Comfortable & Close to All! »

    Nice place to stop on our way up the California coast. Owners/operators were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Made an extra effort to get our room early ready and were helpful in answering our questions about the area. Stayed in a Queen room, and while it was a little bit tight, it was more than adequate for an overnight stay. Room had a small table & 2 chairs, good lighting, tub/shower combo and small vanity area. Also had a coffee maker, microwave and dorm sized refrigerator. Everything needed plus more.

    « Could not ask for better »

    Highly recommend this BW location. All around, staff, room, location, value, could not ask for more. It was an excellent stay. I was with friends on a extended weekend trip to see the area and travel up to Hearst Castle. This BW location was an excellent find - I will be back!

    Overcharged and not compensated for extending our stay. Appearance of outside of hotel is nice. Location is nice. Breakfast area is extereme small and options of food where very limited. Do not recommend this place. Other near by lodging is better that the Tradewinds and are the same price.

    « Will stay again! »

    I like this little hotel in Morro Bay. It is well- maintained, very clean, and I got a great night sleep and everything I needed after 13-hour flight and 5- hour drive from LA in heavy traffic with gusty winds. The bed is so comfortable, and there is a microwave, refrigerator and coffeemaker in room. They have complimentary cookies at check-in and good complimentary breakfast - waffles, yogurt, eggs, cereals, milk, juice, jam and jelly, syrups, fresh fruits, muffins and pastries, teas and coffees. Special thanks to Sandy - she is wonderful!

    « Be careful. Read my review in detail »

    Everything good does not remain good forever. This was probably my 6/7th stay in various places in best western across US. On our way to LA, me and my family stayed for a night here. After we checked in my wife went to adjust the AC beside the window. She slipped a bit and her hand rested on window glass. Because of sudden impact glass broke. I told reception before I left. Reception told, it was okay I cloud go. Few hours later on my the way to LA, I got a call from owner that I have to pay for the damage. I explained that, it was not our fault. I didn't want spoil my trip and agreed to pay if the amount was small. Today, I got a call that I need to pay around 140$. I have paid the amount. It is a small amount so I never argued and there was never a bad feelings. Owner was also very nice to me and infact thanked GOD, that only glass broke nothing happened to my wife. It was kind of sweet slap :) I am also trying to be professional and just sharing my experience. No hard feelings. Probably it was my last stay in Best Western.

    « Best Western Tradewinds Morro Bay THE BEST »

    The managers, Danny and Sandi, were very accommodating in making our stay enjoyable! They opened up the lobby early so that we could get breakfast before we took off for the golf course. We (six of us) were there for a collegiate tournament and had early starting times. Sandi gave us snacks for the event. When our rooms were not available upon arrival, she found a room for the girls to change into their outfits and relax for a few minutes.

    Stayed one night at this location. The room was fine. Clean and comfortable. Water pressure was great. Convenient location. Close to the waterfront. The best thing about this place was the friendly gal at the front desk. From taking my reservation, check in, breakfast, to check out, she was there to take care of everything. Thank you so much for making our stay so pleasant.

    « Pleasant Stay In Morro Bay »

    Easy, quick check in with the help of the very courteous front desk staff. Room was adequate and was definitely clean. Good location, close to attractions in Morro Bay. The only reason I can't give an 'Excellent' rating is because the breakfast area is very small--about 5 tables. They do have trays available for you to take your breakfast back to your room, but I would prefer a larger breakfast area.

    « Great location and staff »

    Picked this property for a two-night getaway with hubby due to its location, which is perfect. Just a few blocks to the waterfront where there are lots of restaurants and shops and of course Morro Rock! Although a bit small, our corner room was very nice, clean, and functional. Breakfast items were fresh and plentiful and staff was very helpful with recommendations. The road is a bit busy but quiets down at night.

    « Great Location and Terrific Value »

    We were in the area for a four day birthday weekend for a 60th celebration. I'm terrible with names but I believe it was Sandy and Daniel who took care of us most often. They were fantastic and made us feel very at home. The rooms were super clean and well appointed. The location is perfectly in the middle of all Morro Bay action. We ate and shopped and walked and ate some more. We had coffee at the hotel but ventured out for a sit down service meal for breakfast nearby. This is a very fine beach hotel with decent pricing for the area and for what you get. I recommend this hotel to savvy travelers.

    « Fantastic location, clean hotel in downtown Morro Bay! »

    Great property right in the heart of Morro Bay! The hotel has very clean rooms which were comfortable. All of the hotels and motels in the area are small properties. You will not find a resort here, so this property was one of our favorite downtown hotels we have stayed at. We travel often to Morro Bay and Cayucos and we really enjoyed being at the Tradewinds. The owner, Sandy, is wonderful. She truly cares about her guests comfort and well-being. She is so sweet!

    « Good Deal »

    I did some price shopping prior to staying at Best Western Tradewinds and found their pricing to be one of the best. Then when we arrived, I was very pleased on the quality of the room, its cleanliness and the amenities. Also the staff were very friendly and welcoming.

    « Very welcoming, good breakfast »

    We were here for one night while driving from San Francisco to San Diego. The woman on duty was very welcoming, personable and pleasant. She even provided a bottle opener for us to borrow. The motel is in a good location although the town is not big. The rooms are average size, no problems at all with our room. I was able to use the hot tub and that was very refreshing. Breakfast in the morning was pretty good and had the normal variety of hot and cold items. We would stay here again if we ever came back to Morro Bay or the vicinity.

    « Lovely hotel run by lovely people »

    We only needed a room for one night after planning a last-minute Central Coast trip as a weekend getaway. Overwhelmed with the number of hotels in the area we settled on Morro Bay as a good jumping off point and picked the Best Western Tradewinds because the location seemed good and the reviews were positive. We weren't disappointed at all. It's a fairly standard hotel/motel as far as room and amenities go. Nice clean room with comfortable beds, continental breakfast, etc. Location is indeed excellent. We parked the car and walked the two short blocks down to the embarcadero for dinner and drinks and stumbled back a few hours later. In the morning we were greeted by that lovely view of Morro Rock as we pulled out of the Tradewinds driveway. But before leaving, we stopped into the lobby to avail ourselves of a light breakfast (lots of different things to choose from so everyone was happy) and while there we chatted with the couple who run the place. They are such kind and warm people - perfect for the hospitality business. They greeted everyone with a cheery 'good morning' when coming in and were happy to chat with us about where we were from and what we had planned - and to help us figure out the waffle maker. They're recent arrivals (September of '17) and still learning the area and the town, but when it comes to making guests feel welcome and comfortable, they're naturals. We had no issues with our stay but I have no doubt that if we did Sandy and her husband (whose name I didn't catch) would have done whatever was needed to make it right. Sandy recommended that in the future I should just call the hotel directly to book my room and she'd make sure I got the best possible price. You may want to do the same. So like I said, lovely people, nice hotel, great spot. I'll stay there again next time I feel the need to take in some Central Coast beauty...something else I highly recommend.

    « Comfortable, affordable, idyllic location »

    Best Western Tradewinds in located one street back from the hub of the idyllic fishing village of Morro Bay. With restaurants, shops and live music a 'stones throw' away great views of the Rock, this is an ideal base for an idyllic get-away or stop-over. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the quality of the 'continental' breakfast is truly outstanding. In three months of travelling across th US, I rate this breakfast as the best, well above even the other cooked breakfasts. Morro Bay is surrounded by State Parks, surf and swimming beaches and amazing wildlife. I strongly recommend Best Western Trade Winds as a clean, comfortable and ideally located motel in a little bit of paradise!

    1
    « Deceptive pricing »

    I would like give this more stars. Staff was friendly, room was OK. However, we were charged $105 more than quoted in the reservation and the motel refused to refund the difference. We made reservations on the Best Western website itself (not a third party site). Total for stay was quoted as $749, including taxes and fees. This disclaimer was given that taxes were an estimate. Fine, if taxes and fees were $20 or so more than the quote, not a problem. But imagine our surprise, upon checking out, when taxes and fees were more than $100 what was quoted on their own website! Our final bill: $854. Management refused to make any adjustment. "The disclaimer was there" was their response. So if price is not a concern and you don't mind your bill being significantly higher than what you see on the Best Western website, sure stay here. Nothing wrong with the rooms. (Though I would question this place being worth almost $200 per night, when you add the surprise taxes.). But if you want to know what you are actually going pay for a room before you arrive, look elsewhere.)

    We decided to take a quick mini vacation to the Morro Bay area of the Calif. coast and booked two nights at the BW Tradewinds and what a very pleasant surprise it turned out to be. The staff was absolutely amazing and the rooms were spotlessly clean. For the price this hotel is one of the best values in the Morro Bay/Cayucos area. The hotel is a half block from all the restaurants and shops along the harbor. Our recommendation is a big two thumbs up on this great hotel.

    « We'll be back! »

    We've stayed at this hotel twice. The staff is great, very polite and welcoming. I love their complimentary breakfast - there's something for everyone. My 4 1/2 year old daughter LOVED this hotel! I'm sure the beach being 2 blocks away had something to do it with, but she referred to the hotel room as the "beautiful house." I loved that there was a microwave and fridge in the room. I loved that the bathroom had a full tub, rather than a shower stall. Made bath time for my kiddo much easier. This place is very homey and the location is perfect. We've made a decision to stay here every summer now, so we'll be back. :)

    We always stay at the Tradewinds and love the location, the owners, the staff, the clean rooms and exterior as well as lovely colorful plants around the hotel. When we call the owner, Kayla, always remembers us and tries to accommodate us with our "favorite" room when possible. The nightly cost varies, but it is always the best value in town. We never look anywhere else!

    « A very nice hotel when visiting Morro Bay »

    We stopped in Morro Bay and really enjoyed our stay. The Tradewinds is located one block away from the harbour and from some excellent restaurants. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. Décor was up to date. Rooms had coffee makers in the rooms. Breakfast was included and was excellent! As we were travelling in summer, we anticipated higher room costs. The cost to stay is high in comparison to the room.

    « Small rooms good location »

    This being my second visit to morro bay I had a better idea of where to stay. I booked Best Western because it's a national chain and I was able to use mileage points to purchase a gift card. That being said the location was great the neighborhood was quiet we were very clise to morro rock and the embarcardo. The rooms were small and gave a cluster phobic feeling as the window faced the parking lot and the bathroom window (small) faced morro rock. The room was clean and staff friendly.

    Loved the location of this hotel. It is your basic hotel with no frills, but, being in this town you do not need such. The room had a small refrigerator and wifi. The bathroom was a good size and had all needed amenities. I wish the breakfast had been a bit healthier, but, I cannot complain. We were able to walk down to the embarcadero and along the main street easily.

    « Very Nice! »

    Checked in this afternoon for a 2 night getaway with my husband. Very nice, small hotel. Rooms have a fresh coat of paint, oak door is new, carpet looks new (or very well cleaned ), mini fridge is about twice as large as you find in most hotels, and front desk staff was very helpful. Room has your usual ironing board and iron and hairdryer, king bed had 4 standard pillows. Water pressure is on the low side but considering California is encouraging water restriction, I understand. Breakfast area is very small, and as we have not had breakfast there yet I cannot comment on the selection or quality. Rooftop deck has a hot tub, no pool, and a couple of tables and several chairs. Is within walking distance to the shops and restaurants, which is a big plus for us. Would stay here again!

    The rooms were small and that was ok because Morro Bay is my happy place. However, we slept with the windows open because the AC didn't work and the room stayed muggy. It was tough to sleep there. Breakfast in the morning...we went next door to Carla's. It was awesome.

    We love Morro Bay during the summer, because we live in Bakersfield where the summer temperatures reach over a 100. We love to go to this coastal town because it is always cooler, probably by 30 degrees. This hotel is so close to the shops we love to park our car and just walk the whole town.

    « Great location, loved the hot tub! »

    Good room, facilities, breakfast. No niggles at all. What made the place special was being able to sit in the hot tub and watch the sun go down, as well as easy access to the harbour and Morro Rock. Fascinating place. Loved it, would happily return, especially for the seals and otters.

    We had a wonderful time on our family trip to Morro Bay. The staff was very helpful. We had trouble with the tv but staff came and helped us out. The breakfast was nice. The area is small but they had a good variety of choices. The last at the front desk was great with my little kids.

    « bad air in room »

    On arrival windows were open in room and things appeared well. On closing windows for afternoon out the room smelled like a dirty rug on return and both of us began coughing. On opening windows to ventilate room wall A/C heater turned on which caused more coughing and sneezing because apparently filter in A/C is dirty. Air in room full of 'dust' particles. We stayed because we were busy outside the room and purchased Benadryl to stop the respiratory symptoms.

    « A Morro Bay delight »

    Great place to stay, rooms lovely & clean & well presented. Breakfast was a delight, a variety of foods to choose from & constantly restocked. Although a relatively small breakfast area, perfectly adequate, tidy & clean. It's location is great too, just a short stroll from Morro Bay Rock. Otters & seals can be easliy seen in the bay. So pleased my friends & I stayed here. No hesitation in giving this hotel/motel the 'Thumbs Up' !

    This was the last stop in out 2 week western half of the US driving trip. we were to arrive around 11pm so I called in advance to let them know and the manager called me back and was going to leave the key under the mat. Very nice to do so we could go right to our room without disturbing them that late. The room was ok for a small motel. The bathroom was really small however. The breakfast selection was extremely limited in selection with no eggs, sausage, or even bacon. Only coffee, juice,fruits, danishes, and cereal.

    « A Delightful Stay in Morro Bay »

    Pulling into the parking lot of the Tradewinds Best Western, we could see it was a well kept place, and there sweeping in the parking lot was lady with a welcoming big smile. We were early and hoped we could get a room and the young lady at the desk suggested for a small upgrade fee, the view of the bay might be a nice choice. She brought us to the room to check it out. We saw a very well kept "tidy' hotel room and walking over to the window - WOW. There was the Morro Bay rock; we couldn't get much closer with the bay all around, the nice little town below. The bathroom was clean and the bed was comfortable, not one complaint. Checking out the next morning we were so thankful for a pleasant stay at the Tradewinds. I saw the lady with the big smile sweeping the parking lot was the owner - that just shows how they care about how their hotel looks for their guests.

    Every year I have a conference at San Luis Obispo. It is so nice to stay just a little bit away where it is cooler. This hotel is just one block from all of the seaside shops and restaurants. It is also easy to access the freeway to head south to SLO or Pismo, north to Cambria and San Simeon (Hearst Castle). The staff are always wonderful and it is reassuring to see the same happy and warm faces every year.

    We've stayed at this hiotel several times in the past 10 years. Great location, superb cleanliness, and freindly staff keep us coming back.

    « Location near the wharf in Morro Bay »

    We were there on a Saturday night in June and the price was very high --over $200 with tax and it is just not that kind of property. It really is a funky motel in a good location but the place is really not very clean and the bathroom is substandard. The air conditioner did not hold the temperature and the circulation was poor. If you are out of options you could certainly do worse and hanging out in Morro Bay is terrific, but I would research other places before you commit.

    « Very relaxing and clean! »

    My family came to Morro Bay to scatter the ashes of our father. We were only staying for 1 night and needed a nice, comfortable place to stay to decompress after such an emotional event. This Best Western was perfect for our needs. The rooms were clean, quiet, and the staff was polite and responsive. The hotel is older so the walls are thicker and sound does not carry which was nice because we all slept in the next morning. We used the spa which was just the right temperature and had a lovely view of Morro Rock. The breakfast wasn't fancy, but better than many continental breakfasts and the coffee was fresh and hot. The only drawback is that they do not allow pets. The room was big and we had no issues with wi-fi or the tv - we enjoyed both. The hotel is about a block from Embarcadero, which is the main street facing the ocean. There are lots of shops and restaurants along this street. I would stay here again for sure!

    « In Need of Repairs »

    This no tell Hotel needs some serious TLC. There are several others to choose from in the area, I would not stay again. It simply is a poor representation of the Best Western chain name. Dead bugs on sheets. Toilets didn't function properly. Carpets were gross.

    « Much like coming Home »

    The greeting we received and the attention to detail at this establishment were above the norm. I felt as if we were returning home or to a friend's house. Little things matter-a full freezer to refreeze our ice pack thus avoiding waste of water and ice. Two luggage wracks and a recycle bin in the room are among the details. Bkfst was excellent including organic raisin bread.

    « Good location. Great service »

    i really wanted to rate this a 3.5, but will round up because of Kala. She was so welcoming, friendly and helpful. Spoke to her several times over our 2 night stay and she was always super sweet & asked how we were enjoying our stay. Location is good! Its about 2 blocks from the water. You can walk down to some restaurants, and see the Rock. You could also walk over to the Embarcadero area but thats a little further. We drove over and parked down there. Its easily accessible from the freeway. Parking lot is small, and some of the spots are narrow, but we always found a spot. As you leave the hotel and walk towards the water you can immediately see the rock - pretty cool! Room: We were upstairs in this weird little alcove thing - room 224. Our window faced out the back of the hotel, towards an industrial looking building. No elevator, so you need to lug all your stuff upstairs, which was not fun. The walls were very thin and we could really hear our neighbors. The water pressure was really low, took forever to get shampoo out. And A/C was noisy and the TV was blurry. OK, enough of negatives - on the plus side - the room was very clean. Everything was in working order. The bathroom had a tub/shower combo. Counter in bathroom was large enough to lay out toiletries, which was nice. The tv was on a piece of furniture which held the refrigerator. It was a good size frig - and kept our stuff very cold. The bed was a little soft for my liking, but it was comfy. Linens were clean and crisp. There was coffee in the room, which was nice. A lot of places we've stayed lately have removed the coffee makers. Amenities: wifi was good. There was a continental breakfast which we did not eat, but heard that others enjoyed it. There is a 2nd story spa, with a view of the rock. Very nice and relaxing. The spa area was clean. The water was hot and we really enjoyed it! All in all, this motel was a positive experience and we would stay there again. There were a few negatives, but the positives outweighed them!

    Older, smaller facility, so rooms are a bit smaller, etc. But rooms have recently been renovated, so they are in fine shape, bed was very comfortable, and room was decorated nicely. Only drawback was the size of the breakfast room - could only seat 8 or so people. Location of the hotel was very convenient - could walk to the harbor in a couple of minutes. Overall, a very good value.

    Spent 3 nights at this nice little hotel. Picked it for the location, and we weren't disappointed. Met or exceeded all of the Best Western standards that I could see. Clean room, great TV, shower, Wi-Fi, fridge and micro-wave. Plumbing seemed a bit noisy, and could hear people in other rooms. To be expected on a Friday night I guess. Breakfast was a bit sparse, but there are alternatives, yes within walking distance.

    This Best Western is obviously an older hotel by outward design. However, the rooms have been meticulously redone and are both extremely comfortable and eye-appealing. Also, the room was incredibly quiet. Although the hotel was full by nightfall I heard nothing from other guests. I had a view of the bay from my room, and was able to open the window to enjoy the atmosphere and fresh air. It was a very restful visit.

    We decided to cut our Bass Lake stay short and headed here. Our room was not available as we arrived early. We headed to town and returned later. We only stayed one night and there was not a single thing wrong with our room. The staff was excellent! After returning home my son discovered he left his belt. I called 3 days later nd asked for Kayla to check their lost and found. She told me she found a belt in a pair of pants. She texted me a pic of the items as I requested. Once I told her it was his, she instructed me on how they take care of these things. Today I arrive home to belt nd pants on my doorstep. I just called yesterday!!

He said he is not the owner, but it did look good. No foam when turn on. So don't know what I saw. I told him its scummy, murkey. Did you test the water. Not my job! Norman guess what guest safety is part of your job! When I went back they had scrubbed scum off. Gross. I asked if he would go in there. Doesn't use public pools. Therefore not his problem.

    Stayed on the first floor, in room 204. Very clean & well kept room, with coffee facilities. Basic breakfast of cereal, waffles, toast etc. which suited us just fine. The staff were very helpful & couldn't do enough for us. Only stayed for the one night, but an ideal location for the beach (and the 'Gibraltaesque' rock) & the many restaurants along the front. A decent hotel (which we would go back to) in a lovely seaside town.

    We booked the room after reading "scenic view". We assumed our room would have a window facing the bay. Nope! And found out the room had no heater, so had to ask for a blanket (none provided in the room). The clock was set to the wrong time. No cups by the sink--had to use a coffee cup. It is advertised to have service 24 hours a day, but when we checked out at 7am, the lobby was locked and no one was there. I would not return. There are too many loose ends.

    We were in Morro Bay for a family event Saturday and Sunday night over Veterans Day weekend. We called from the road to see if we could check in an hour early and were told if we upgraded to a room with a view of the rock for an additional $25 a night a room would be ready. So we went for it. The motel is nothing fancy on the outside. But inside..The rooms have been upgraded. Very clean, comfortable. King size bed had good quality linens. The room came with free wifi that worked well, and lots of amenities. The motel jacuzzi was clean and the jets worked well. The complimentary continental breakfast was more than adequate. Since it was a holiday weekend, we did pay a premium rate. I posted a picture of our view for the extra $25 a night. Won't do that again. But I would stay here again.

    « At $100, it'd be a decent place to stay. But at $200/night...disappointing. »

    When I booked a room here, I failed to note that this is a Best Western. Not a Best Western Plus. Not a Best Western Premiere. So what you get is a pretty basic motor inn with clean rooms, an okay bed, and not much more. No views. No elevators. No restaurant or bar. Their "breakfast room" seated a total of SIX people, which, along with the mediocre food offerings, left many guests going without or going down the street to a restaurant. My room was $200 (yes, it was a Saturday night) but I feel a little embarrassed for paying that much.

    You don't need a rambling property when staying in Morro Bay, just a great room. This property on the outside looks like the typical L-shaped two story property popular some time ago. However! The rooms have been beautifully upgraded, beds are very comfy, and I loved the color scheme chosen. Best part? Air conditioning! Not common in this town and I need my air at night, especially in humid weather. The parking is a bit funky but not a problem. The breakfast area is small but again not a problem - they have trays to take to your room if you prefer. You can easily walk to the Embarcadero from your room. I will definitely be back to this property as I visit Morro Bay several times a year.

    My family and I decided to stay at this motel after spending the day at the beach. We had spent the night before in Paso and attended the fair/concert and to escape the heat we spent the Sunday & husband's birthday just relaxing. In the evening our daughter begged us to return to Paso and go back to the fair so we compromised and offered to stay in Morro and find a place with a spa to warm up. I read reviews and booked here for the spa. Check-in was wonderful, desk clerk very friendly. A tad pricey for what we got but it was high tourist season, so I was not surprised, we were given a better rate in person than online. Only negative was the spa. I would not plan on even attempting to get in. It is on the 2nd floor and obviously had a major leak, as you could see below. I honestly don't know what I was thinking offering my daughter a motel spa to begin with, the only spas I let her get in are the ones in luxury resorts in Hawaii. She was bummed but even at 7 could see why I wouldn't let her and realized it was dangerous. I'm not really a fan of Morro Bay (like my husband) as I find it too sleepy & gloomy but we had a nice 1 night stay in a clean room, walking distance to Embarcadero at this motel.

ROOM & SERVICE: it was an amazing view, and if you can upgrade I do suggest you do! Especially if you're looking for a romantic getaway. The room was overall clean and tighty. The service was great, always friendly, and they always stocked up on the cookies in the office! which of course my boyfriend and I took advantage of. Their breakfast was small, only having three tables where you can actually sit and eat, but they offer trays you can take back to your room which was really nice! They had waffles, pasteries, cereal and other small items. (no meat which made me a little sad!) They also had an amazing jacuzzi on the second floor where you can look at the rock and just watch the beautiful view. It was simply wonderful.

    « Terrible Experience »

    Booked this motel due to positive reviews and high rating. Terrible mistake, hard to believe this property is a Best Western brand. Small room with tiny bathroom, ants everywhere, linens are dirty. Price is extremely high. After complaining to front desk received 75$ credit, even after this credit room still costs 150$ which is way too much for what is offered. Will not stay again. Very hesitant to choose any Best Western now.

Not really a big deal because we were gonna go wslk around the embarcadaro, but I asked if ck in wasnt 3:00 And she told me it normally could be anywhere btween 3:00 and 10:00 pm Depending how busy its been.

    « Nice little hotel close to Morro Rock »

    Stayed for a night on our drive up the coast between LA and SF. Really had a pleasant stay. It was very obvious that the owners have been investing time and money into the place as the 2 rooms we stayed in looked to be recently renovated. In fact, it appeared they were installing new mattresses in many rooms the day we visited. You can get a great view of Morro Rock from within a few yards of the hotel and the village is a short drive or walk if you prefer. Breakfast was available, and smelled great, but we were in quite a rush to our next activity for the day. Wish we had more time to stay and explore.

    We were visiting a good friend in Morro Bay and this turned out to be a nice surprise. Room was clean, quiet and had a powerful shower. Was an upstairs room; no view, but amazing views right down the street. Walking easy to everything. Breakfast room tiny but typical fare to eat. Only complaint on that is it doesn't open until 7:30am and we are much earlier risers. Had we been traveling onward, would have eaten on the road. Also, free wifi but very slow. I've stayed at 2 other places in town, and this beats both.

    « Small and quiet »

    If you are looking for a small facility and close to everything in Morro Bay, well, this may fit the bill. Check in was simple! Our requested rollaway was already in the room which scored points for us as the previous places were not as prepared for our arrival. First floor room was perfect for one night. The AC unit is right by the bed which caused me to hurry under cover each time it came on. Sink is outside the shower allowing us to get ready faster! Three teens and two adults can take forever otherwise! Breakfast was nothing remarkable, typical hotel style with some sort of eggs and waffles. No meat today and hard boiled eggs. The gentleman in charge was annoying at best, following guests from item to item, making sure we did it his way. I suspect a little OCD going on there. Chairs were fixed continually so they were straight and pushed in. The area was clean so I will give him points for that but stop making people uncomfortable.

    My daughter & I (from Texas) were visiting family in Morro Bay. We spent 3 very comfortable and quiet nights: May 17, 18 &19, 2016 in separate rooms at the Best Western Tradewinds. Cannot say enough good about the service and cleanliness of this motel. Bed & linens were awesome and towels were large and fluffy. Room had free wifi, cable TV, fridge, microwave and coffee set-up. Coin operated washer & dryer available on premises. Lots of free parking. Reception area had a very sm breakfast area but offerings were fresh and adequate. Only downside is there is no elevator and stairs are a bit steep, but we had super help with our luggage from Asst Mgr Bob Kala, who went out of his way to be accommodating. This is not a fancy place, more utilaterian, but it is extremely clean and well cared for, with a very helpful & well trained staff. It's a lot better than several more upscale places I've stayed. The location is great, one block from the Embarcadero with its waterfront restaurants and shops, but far enough away to provide a quiet rest. Looking forward to staying here again on our next visit. ??

    « Won't stay again. »

    We've stayed here more than once in the past and unfortunately will not stay here again. They are attracting the wrong kind of clientele, those that have no consideration for other people and think the hotel is their place to party. Our room was caught between two other rooms that partied on the balcony outside our room until 4:00 in the morning! Who does that? Management should have been more aware of what was going on in their establishment and made appropriate changes. I did talk to management about in the morning and all I received was a light apology. We will move on to other choices in town next visit.

    While the outside of the building looked a little dated in the photos, the interiors were beautifully appointed. I've stayed in some other Best Westerns with older linens and covers as well as worn furniture and fixtures. This definitely was not the case here. My daughter and I stayed at this Best Western overnight last Friday and we both slept well due to the comfortable beds as well as the quiet neighborhood around us. Everything was very clean and orderly in the room and the complimentary toiletries seemed even nicer than usual. DirectTV and Wi-Fi were offered in the rooms for our evening's indoor enterainment. We did not check out the hot tub due to the breezy weather but it is located on the second floor and would have a view of the ocean and Morro Rock. Continental breakfast was not available until 7:30am but we were able to enjoy some coffee in the room before checking out the breakfast in the main lobby. The typical cereals, pastries, toast, juice, waffles, yogurt and coffee were offered. The management was available during breakfast and took the time to interact and converse with the guests. This was also the case when we checked in the night prior and we were made to feel very welcome. I would definitely stay again in the future!

    Although this is an older motel, the owners have made very nice improvements in the décor, with granite in the bathroom, and new paint outside. Unfortunately, the walls are still thin, and Beach Street is rather noisy. Be sure to ask for an upstairs room facing west toward Morro Rock. All the other hotels were booked for the Morro Bay Car Show, and this one must have raised their prices, because it was rather expensive.

    I come to Morro Bay once a year for work. This is the second time I have stayed in this hotel. Its located walking distance from everything. Its small but well priced for the area. Rooms are tiny. Bed is comfy. Room was clean. Staff is super friendly. My only suggestion would be to offer coffee/tea/hot water sooner then 0730 when the breakfast starts. Since I am only there a day and I turn to at 0700not having coffee kinda sucks. Sure there is the pot in the room but no creamer..etc etc. Not to much to ask to have coffee earlier for us early birds. Bottom line.... Would I stay there again....yup.

    The room itself was fine - even had a ceiling fan which was great as it kept the room cool without the noise of the A/C. However - the rooms are NOISY! You can hear everything from the street noise, the rooms around you and even worse people on the walkway or in the parking lot. We were on the 2nd floor - about 4 rooms back from the street. We were woken up Saturday morning at 7am by folks standing in the parking lot or walkway talking. We loved the location - easy walk to our favorite wine bar, breakfast spot and the little shopping/dining strip that overlooks Morro Rock. Unfortunately the noise far outweighed our love of the location and we won't stay again unless they greatly improve the sound proofing.

There was great cable and the room was very comfortable. The next morning we checked out at 10:15 and the same sweet man was at the desk.

    We came to Morro Bay in Central California to enjoy the coast and enjoy a typical Best Western stay. This was a small motel with basic amenities. For the price we expected more of what the BW does best. The room was comfortable and made for handicap folks like me. Upon arrival, I was told that the necessary shower chair that goes with the tub had been given to another guest, even though I had requested it at reservation. There is another BW in town and we will be going back to it in the future. The breakfast was more like camping. The next night, for $10 more we stayed at a BW in Pismo Beach that was elegant!

    This is a very old motel and in spite of the owners' best efforts it shows. The rooms are very small and the bathroom is smaller.

    On the positive side, BW Tradewinds was very clean, the king bed was comfortable and the office personnel pleasant. These features are important to us and therefore the good rating. On the negative side, a number of things stand out, most of which would be difficult to correct. BW Tradewinds is within walking distance of the ocean front, but the lot it sits on is too small. The parking lot is small, crowded and congested. The breakfast nook provides very basic breakfast items, and is actually part of the office with room for only 3 small, two-person tables, far too inadequate for a two-level motel. Relatively poor TV reception in the room. However, the positive features outweigh the bad. We would return.

The breakfast area is small, but it contains enough variety to satisfy and you're able to take your breakfast back to the room if you want to. All in all, I'd recommend this as a good hotel to stay at.

    « Small room »

    We thought we were getting a queen size bed and got a double instead. Very cramped upstairs (steep stairs) room. Bed was only place to sit after needing to use the one chair to place suitcase. Breakfast room cramped. Hot tub a joke on top of roof. No parking space when we returned at night. Positive was the friendly staff and modern door entry key.

    « Good for a one night stay »

    The hotel is easy to find and perfectly located, it's just a short walk down to the bay and beach. Parking was fine, lots of spaces when we arrived. The reception area is small but we were greeted warmly. Our room was upstairs and was surprising large! It had a nice king size bed, OK sized bathroom and separate dressing area. Breakfast was included but it was extremely busy, with only 3-4 tables it was difficult to get near the food or even a table. The receptionist did point out some trays that we could use to take breakfast back to the room (which I did, and managed an impressive save when I tripped on the parking kerbs whilst carrying the tray!!!) It would have been nice to have a sign up noting this somewhere easily seen. Overall I would recommend this hotel for a short stay.

    « Very small place »

    This place was very small. Everything was very cramped. We had to duck under the stairs to get into our room. Parking is very cramped. Breakfast room is very small too. Bathroom was almost on the ridiculous side of small. The location was good for us. You could just walk down the hill to town. Free Wifi . NO pool.. They do have a hot tub.. It is upstairs. No elevator at this hotel.

    « Great Stay »

    My Husband and I were looking for a nice get away, much needed. Our stay here at this hotel was very nice. Staff (Bob) was very, very pleasant and made sure we were comfortable. This hotel is close to everything, embarcadero, great restaurants and downtown etc. It was all within walking distance. Great hotel... Great stay. Thank you Bob and your staff. Very nice and we will see you again this next year.

    « Morro Bay Tradewinds »

    This small, cozy Best Western hotel is walking distance to all the restaurants and scenery of Morro Bay. The rooms have been remodeled nicely since our last stay four years ago. Great decor and furnishings! We woke to an unexpected view of Morro Rock. Friendly staff and fairly priced. We will stay here again.

    Just what I was looking for. Not fancy, just clean and updated. Very friendly and helpful staff. Had a bad experience at a previous hotel and came here on a recommendation from a different BW employee. Worked out great! Wonderful location.

    « Auto Travel, Pacific Coast Hwy, California, USA »

    Over the years, anytime we drive the California Coastal Hwy, we make it a point to visit, Morro Bay, CA.and stay at the Best Western Tradewinds, if possible. We have never been disappointed, rooms have always been well maintained and the Staff pleasant to deal with, "they have a sense of humour". If you are going to be in the area, give them a call several days ahead of time, Morro Bay is a busy tourist town, especially for fishermen/women.

    « No go if you're pregnant »

    It was by far the most disappointing hotel stay I've ever had. We choose to stay there - and even chose to pay $50 more to stay there - based on the pictures and it's distance to the beach and the ocean. The hotel itself was fine (except parking was a bit tricky], the employees were all nice and friendly. They even had cookies for the kids. But when you are paying nearly $200/night and drive up to see a nuclear plant not 5 blocks away (this is out of your control, I admit-but it should be in the hotel information], then go out to dinner and they say "Don't drink the water here, it's contaminated." (they DID say it was a blue green algae thing or something-but still, it raises red flags] Then, at checkout you notice a sign that warns pregnant women not to stay in the Morro Bay area, as the air and everything in the area is contaminated...and I'm standing there noticeably 6 months pregnant (even had a conversation about it with the check-in desk] and no one ever said ANYTHING to me about the risk on the website, in person or otherwise...well, it makes one grateful that the stay was only for about 12 hours. A VERY expensive night for a very disappointing atmosphere.

    « A nicely cared for place to stay »

    I have stayed here before and like the area. My business is in Pismo Beach, so I had a drive each day, but, well worth the quiet stay. Updates seem to be done regularly. The only thing I would change would be the way the refrigerator and microwave are situated. That could use an up date. The doors are a bit skewed and you must bend over to use the microwave. I noticed that the light switches in the sink area were replaced with toggles and the toilet seat was repaired. I like the linens here. Nice heavy towels !

    « A great place to stay »

    We loved Morro Bay with the water just down from the hotel. We had an upstairs room looking towards the rock. We were able to leave the windows open all night without too much disturbance to our sleep. We heard the sea lions barking and the fog horns going just now and again. We were advised to stroll along the water front and saw a number of sea lions just laying on the rocks or swimming. We had dinner at the last dockside outside restaurant which was delightful. We watched the most beautiful sunset from the dock. The hotel was just a short stroll from the water and was comfortable. Very nice staff, good beds and continental breakfast ( although very small breakfast room). We would certainly recommend this hotel and would stay again.

    « Nice Place to Stay »

    As it seems with most properties in Morro Bay, this is an older building but has been updated and kept in very nice condition. Check in staff were very friendly and helpful. Motel is located only one block up from the Embarcadero and a great view of Morro Rock. Satellite TV is a nice touch.

    « Great access to the Bay and Harbor Festival »

    The hotel is only two blocks from the shops and activities of the bayside. We stayed during the annual Harbor Festival. This event was well represented by local merchants and we took advantage of Great Seafood caught and cooked by area fishermen. The hotel staff go out of their way to be friendly, courteous and helpful!

    « Good value for the price and good location for walking to the Embarcadero. »

    I spent one night there while traveling along the coast. There is a very small room in the office for a limited breakfast. I just had banana, yogurt and coffee. They have trays to take food back to your room. The staff there was very nice, room was small, but it served its purpose for my short stay. The room was clean and bed comfortable.

    Charming, quiet, good location. Walk to everything pretty much. Lovely staff, clean. Touches that make the stay very pleasant, Wish there was an elevator though. No view from doube queen rooms. Was pleasantly surprised by the quality, cleanliness and kindness. Thank you all who work so hard to make this a great little home away from home.

    « First time in Morro Bay »

    After a thorough search for a hotel fitting our needs and in our price range we were not disappointed with our choice. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was very comfortable and clean and the area was quiet and relaxing. The bay and restaurants were within walking distance. We were only staying one night on a drive north so just wanted a place to sleep but Morro bay and Best Western ended up being a very enjoyable part of our trip.

    « Good Hotel »

    Tradewinds is located in the center of Morro Bay just above the Embarcadero, with its shops, restaurants and bars. Reception is friendly and efficient (particularly the manager and his wife, who operate the morning shift). Rooms are better than the motel standard with good quality furniture a refrigerator and microwave. Small but clean bathroom. Good breakfast in a small breakfast room with trays to take breakfast to the room. Room cleaning seems to take most of the day, so don't expect early check-in or the room to be made up particularly early. Recommended.

    This hotel was clean and close to where I needed to be. It was however very expensive for what they offer and have around them. I would only stay here again if the room price was more in line with the places around them.

    This older small Motel is in A-1 shape with spotless rooms and friendly staff. We truly enjoyed our stay there. It is only a two minute walk from the north end of the harbor area shops and restaurants. You can walk to Stand-up Paddle, Kayak rentals and harbor cruises. The areas top beach break surfing spot is only a two minute drive.

    « Nice one night stop in Morro Bay »

    Stopped here for one night on a driving trip up the California coast. Would recommend Morro bay as a good stopping point - less expensive than Cambria, nice 'small town' feel of a real town rather than just a tourist destination. The staff were extremely helpful and the location was good to walk to the waterfront shops and restaurants. Small, older room but very clean and for the price, this was a good value. I made the reservation night before so ended up with a no-view room (looked out over a next door roof) - would recommend getting a view room which I imagine would be quite nice. It was a good stop to get some dinner, sleep, and have a nice walk in the morning to see sea otters and seals and of course Morro rock. Don't get the other reviewers complaints about breakfast - it is a tiny place, the breakfast was decent for the size of the place and in keeping with the typical Best Western continental free breakfasts. You won't be getting omelets and mimosas people! :)
