The room was clean, the bedding was very clean. We were there a few days and didn't spend much time in the room. The bathroom was very big and had a sink and a window which was great. There was another vanity and mirror outside the bathroom, which made the morning rush a little easier for a family with two girls. The continental breakfast was not so great. Just coffee and muffins from costco cut into quarters. After the first day we went to the french bakery down the street for breakfast. I only saw one maid the whole time we were there. I hope there were more or she had to work awfully hard.
One of the problems with weekend get-away trips like Morro Bay is that unless your flush with money, you can rob from the summer vacation to pay for a one night stand on a weekend trip. On the other hand, there's nothing worse than a poorly kept cheap hotel, with traffic running by day and night, and a glaring vacancy sign that can be seen through the drapes. Travelodge is a franchise chain and we have taken the latter more often than the former with them, but this time we got lucky. The hotel is located on a quiet street on top the hill right before the embarcadero, and so from our second floor window we actually had a decent view of Morro Rock for only $55- a night. In California, beach town accommodations rarely get under $80- per night, and they can be a lot higher. In any case, our non-smoking room with queen bed, private bath, Cable TV, room refrigerator, coffee pot, and ironing board was a good deal. Central coast area laws require use of stingy water saver shower heads, so the shower doesn't meet my home standards, but the bathroom was otherwise well stocked and clean. The bed and carpet were also clean. The desk service was friendly, if not terribly knowledgeable about tourist destinations in the area.
Unique Quality: This motel has the unique combination of bargain low price and great location. There's also a swimming pool, but we didn't use it during this weekend trip. We brought the dog, but he had to stay caged in the car overnight. Even so, our parking spot was an enclosed carport, so the pooch was neither baked by sunlight nor chilled by a lack of cover in the night. Ask for a second floor room such as room #14. The hotel doesn't have a few of the ocean, only the rock as seen over a row of trees that mask a Quality Inn (that cost $25- more per night) slightly down the hill. Walking the dog down to the left, 1/2 block from the parking lot, I found a great view spot on a dead-end street where the dog could pee.
