Not Recommended; Unpleasant Woman at Front Desk
Reviewed 8 november, 2021
The older woman at the front desk in the morning was not friendly or helpful. I would not recommend this place. There seemed to be a distinct lack of communication between staff about whether early check in was possible. I called the afternoon before the day of arrival to ask and was kindly advised “no promises, but check back in the morning”. I spoke to another woman at the front desk in the morning who very perfunctorily said early check in was not available at all (implication was that it is not available as a policy) due to lack of staff. It wasn’t really what she said, but how she said it, and the fact that it was a lot different than the impression about early check-in availability left by the friendly person. The same woman was not helpful or friendly when I arrived around lunchtime and asked if I could use the hotel restroom (I did not ask about early check in again). When I walked up to their window, she seemed to be trying to shoo me away and I received a frosty “no public restrooms” before I could even explain I was hotel guest that night. It was the kind of condescending approach some people give to homeless people. I was clean and dressed in clean, good condition clothing, not that it should make a difference. She said no again when I explained I had reservation that night (which is totally fine), but she didn’t bother to mention there is a public restroom right around the corner. She also unnecessarily reminded me that “check in is at 3 PM” in a tone that said “you are not welcome here in until then.” The experience reminded me of encounters with racist people as a child. I would not stay here again if that same person is still part of the business. Haven’t had such a weird interaction with someone in the hotel industry (and never anything close at a place at this price point). That said, there was one younger woman on staff who was friendly and helpful on the phone and at check in. Overall, the place and nice view from the bay view room. None of the common spaces were open presumably due to COVID and the breakfast was a lackluster choice of juice or milk, and two of four food items: cheese stick, nutrigrain bar, applesauce and something else.
Get the room with the ocean view and balcony
Reviewed 9 october, 2021
Booked an ocean view room with a balcony and it was exactly as described. Very pleased with overall stay. The check in was handled at a walk up window to minimize contact and staff was very friendly. Parking was very conveniently located near the elevator entrance. The room was was clean and comfortable. The balcony was fantastic with wonderful view of Morro rock. The location is within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, etc, but yet so quiet and peaceful. Perfect place to stay in Morro bay
Nice Location - Okay stay

I booked online directly with the Blue Sail Inn, and somehow managed to misunderstand what I had booked. We were in town for three days to attend a memorial. I was looking for an inn that had an outdoor patio, since being able to sit outdoors with my coffee in the morning is a favorite daily ritual. I thought when I booked the King room with the ocean view, that was what I was getting based on the description and the picture. When we arrived and I asked about the patio, I was told that we have a window with a view but no patio. They were fully booked so they couldn't move us. The room itself was large, and if you don't mind not being able to sit outside, the bay window gave a great view of Morro Rock. Additionally, the small fridge, real drip coffee maker (and not those ridiculous Keurig machines), and small microwave were added bonuses. Midway through the stay, the air conditioner/heating unit decided to stop working, and a terse response from the desk, and a two hour wait for a flustered housekeeping services person to show up with a space heater wasn't ideal. We mostly like the noise of the fan to drown out the noise of other guest, and this unit, was "motion activated" or some such thing, so was pretty useless. The location is wonderful, and if we were to consider staying there again, I would not rely on booking online, and would call directly to get the room we want. But then again, with a number of other options, we are just as likely to try another hotel.
Bad Management Leads to Non Repair and Rude personnel
Reviewed 16 july, 2021
Stayed in a one bedroom on the first floor. Immediately saw that pretty blue blanket on end of the bed in all the pictures was not there. In fact, none of the rooms we saw had it, so the room was furnished like a motel, very plain. Went to go outside; the screen door fell off the track. My husband couldn't fix it, so we closed it as best we could, and decided that we shouldn't keep opening it and closing it. So, balcony was not usable. Went to use the sink in the bathroom. Cold water worked, but when you moved the handle to hot, it just came out as a tiny trickle. Had to use the shower to warm the washcloth. But here's the worst part. Instead of coming over to try it, the lady at the desk rudely said the hot water DID work, even if it wasn't as high pressure as I wanted it. I asked to see the manager and she said she'd be there later. Later came, and she said the manager left. Next day, the manager told me the hot water worked and gave us a $35.00 credit. We would have much rather had repairs done. When I talked about the screen door, she said that worked as well. I guess if something works AT ALL, they think it's fine at the Blue Sail Inn. Also, "breakfast," is a joke; a bagel, or a snack bar or similar, and juice or coffee. Oh, and hope you don't mind waiting outside the lobby window for 20 minutes or so, while the one person working answers calls at the same time she's waiting on you. P.S. Bring shampoo and conditioner. You get one or the other with lotion, but not both (we found this when we changed rooms).
