I stayed at this hotel on August 27 2011 in room 37 and was bitten over 100 times by bedbugs. When I informed the hotel manager (Tony?), he informed me that they did not have bedbugs and that I had probably left the window open and was bitten by a mosquito or something. However, I have the photos to prove it. Bites from my toes, all over my feet, up my legs and back, on my arms and hands.
After promising an immediate refund, nothing arrived on my credit card bill apart from the original charge. When I called to complain and demand my promised refund, the manager said it had been done and that it was my credit cards fault. That call ended with him telling me to 'go sc**w myself'!
Such customer service! Avoid this hotel like the plague that it is.

... hilltop (1600 feet up) and then taken on a guided tour. After that you have you own time to roam the gardens, take in the fews and pretend (for a little while) that you are a movie star guest of Mr. Hearst. It is beautiful and opulent and an amazing feat of architecture and building (by a woman) for the 1920's. AND we saw zebra's, descendants from Mr. Hearst's collection that still graze with the cattle in the foothills of ...
... Its beef, seasoned mostly with salt, pepper, lots of garlic and grilled over a wood or charcoal fire. The favorite way to serve this tasty meat is sliced on French or Sourdough bread. Bbq sauce or salsa is the condiment of choice. I had my first Tri Tip Sandwich over 10 years ago while visiting my friends Terry and Toni Clark and its something you just find out here in Cali.
... State Park in California where vehicles can be driven on the sands. It was fascinating to watch all the cars, trucks, trailers either park on the beach for a picnic or just cruise along the shore line. This is obviously something one just has to do. Looked like great fun, but did not think it would be a good idea to take the Mustang on to the sands!!! There were also some horses galloping along the waters edge, just amazing.
... rises out of the sea rather magnificently. Basically Morro Bay was a bit of a chill out for us we were a 15 min walk to town so used the opportunity to not drive (seriously Americans drive EVERYWHERE) and explore this cute little town. It's been called the last remaining slice of old California and I can see why. It's what we wanted from Pismo but it didn't deliver. Endless fresh seafood restaurants, whale watching tours, salt water taffy shops and little arty ...
... we headed off towards Hearst Castle! A famous owner of several newspapers in the early 1900's-1950 called William Hearst built a hugemungus castle on a favourite piece of family land. It has 185 rooms, 2 pools and a tennis court. Not to mention the 7 guest houses! He was an art collector and teamed up with a fabulous architect to create a beautiful estate, that now is a famous tourist attraction. We had a guided tour and then had time ...
