We only had one night at the Anderson Inn, but we wished we could have stayed longer! What a wonderful experience, from the time owner Molly welcomed us personally as we pulled into the parking slot, until we left wishing we could stay another day. Arriving around 6:30 PM, Molly welcomed us, checked us in, and showed us around the... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the waterfront rooms for three nights to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. (Upscal bottle of champagne provided!). Molly, Jeff and Roger Anderson are wonderful hosts and the Inn has been beautifully restored. Sea Otters floated by directly under our window cracking abalone shells on their chests (that the sea gulls tried to... More

I went on an impromptu trip with my daughter and her friend. We looked on Trip Advisor for a hotel in Morro Bay and the Anderson in was highly recommended. What a jewel!! We were greeted by Jeff and was told there was one room left. He brought us a roll away bed and cream for our coffee in the... More

We came for our 10 year wedding anniversary, we stayed 4 amazing nights. Jeff and Molly are great, they made sure we had everything we needed. Upon arrival, we were treated to a bottle of champaign :) we love this place and wouldn't stay anywhere else, while visiting Morro bay. Can't wait to bring our kids for a visit.

We wanted something extra special to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and from the other reviews, this looked like the place. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Jeff Anderson and at that instant, we knew we'd make the perfect choice! This family, including sister Mollie, and older brother Roger are the nicest people I think I've EVER met. It's... More

Came for a short two night stay to celebrate our 20th anniversary, and when we arrived the Andersons (almost all of them) greeted us, and attended to everything, and when there was an unforeseen issue with our reservation, they not only solved the issue for us, they made us feel like we were guests in their house. Jeff, Roger and... More

We rated this as our favourite hotel in 2013, and a second US road trip allowed us to plan to visit again. Molly, Jeff & Roger all came out to greet us when we arrived like returning friends, the room (a bay view) was to die for, a meal at the Galley excellent, and we have promised to stay longer... More

If you happen to be driving the coastal highway between San Diego and San Francisco like we did on our vacation, Morro Bay is a great town to spend the night. The Anderson Inn was highly recommended as the place to stay, and we were not disappointed. From the time we met Jeff, we were well taken care of. When... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in an overwater room. We had a good idea of what to expect and we were not disappointed. The room itself was light, airy and well furnished with great views from the windows and balcony. The bed was very comfortable (which is the most important thing in my book), and the room was a haven... More

We couldn't have asked for anything more during our time at Anderson Inn. Mollie was an absolute delight and made us feel like one of the family! This accommodation has been beautifully fitted and makes you feel really comfortable from the time you walk in the door. The location is fantastic and the hospitality from Mollie & her brothers is...
