Wish we did not go there
Not very clean, Wi-Fi worked when we checked in, not in the morning. No one in the office in the morning to report the issue. Towels were like sandpaper. For the price we paid, very disappointing.

4/10 Fair

Given the previous posted rating and cost of this room, I anticiapted so much more. The quality was far below the rating on everything from linens, towels, pillows, and decor. The walls were incredibly thin, we could gear everything about our neighbors. We also had a leaky shower that dripped all night. The hotel manager did offer to allow us to leave with a refund, but unfortuantely it was too late in the day and we were already obligated with a family event. That said, he did not offer a reduced fee for our troubles. He just wanted to he able to turn the room. The location is close to downtown, that is about all it has going for it.

6/10 Good

a place to sleep
check in was fast. the light switch for over the bathroom sink did not work. the carpet felt dingy. the shower floor was slippery i had to put a hand towel down. if you are taller than 5'5" the shower may not be for you. there is no place to put your toiletries had to place them on the floor. the placement of a mirror made it possible to look thru the window and look into the room, had to put a towel over it because the curtain did not wrap around the curtain rod.......

Comfy stay with friendly front-desk people
Cute, clean, and comfy. We love Morro Bay, and Morro Crest Inn is a great place to stay and enjoy the area! Great front desk people, and flexible for late check-in if you're going to Cal Poly football games!

Good value place to sleep
The Morro Crest Inn is an old-style basic motel. Don’t expect ambience, just a basic place to stay located a few short blocks from the waterfront where there’s a good selection of restaurants. It was well-worth the money and I’d stay here again gladly.
