We have visited the US many times during the last 30 plus years, but never stayed in such a charming inn as the Anderson Inn. This is of course not a luxurious fivestar hotel, but still an exquisite gem. Owners Mollie and Jeff are most charming and true hospitality geniuses. You feel like a family member from the moment you... More

We have just returned home from what can only be described as "The Trip of a Lifetime." Staying at the beautiful Anderson Inn and having the opportunity to meet Mollie & Roger was paramount to our experience this week. The Inn is a beautiful, centrally-located, quiet place on the water. The rooms are large, spacious, and beautifully decorated. Our dinner... More

Our stay started out with a comprehensive briefing by Mollie on how everything worked in my room and all the local attractions. There was a personal greeting card on my dresser--a very nice touch by the way. The shower had 3 heads! I was doing the happy dance every time I took one. I stayed here 2 nights: 6-11-15 &... More

What a charming inn - I was treated SO nicely by the owners (Mollie particularly) who made me feel like I was part of their family. I wish I'd paid the extra to stay in the higher priced water-view rooms. I'm a widow and am just learning to travel alone. Mollie and her brother went the extra mile to make... More

We enjoyed one night toward the end of a road trip from Nappa to LA. Arrived in time for a great dinner at the galley restaurant downstairs and an unexpected room upgrade. We had the water under our balcony looking out at the setting sun behind the rock with seals barking and otters cracking clams out in front. Nice room... More

A cursory glance of latest TA reviews gave Anderson Inn a clean sweep of 5 stars so we were expecting something special. We certainly got that - from start to end our stay as this beautiful establishment was exemplary. Mollie and Jeff are wonderful hosts, offering spacious and well furnished accommodation right on the harbour and across from the rock.... More

What a wonderful gem of a place! The Andersons did not spare any expense when redoing their parents' old place into this 8-room inn: pure Scandinavian lines and colors, quality materials, warm surfaces, extreme cleanliness. We stayed in one of the two corner rooms and enjoyed a phenomenal sunset over the Morro Rock from the privacy of our balcony, with... More

We have visited Morro Bay many times over the past 40 years. This visit we finally decided to stay at the Andersen Inn after longing to for the past few years. The Inn is owned and operated by Jeff, Mollie, and Roger, who have grown up in Morro Bay and probably know everything about this area. Jeff greeted us first,... More

We stayed here for two nights. The room was charming and comfortable- great bathroom. And binoculars to see the sea lions and other wildlife. We were given great recommendations for restaurants and things to do This is a family run inn - with very nice hosts. Definitely the place to stay in Morro Bay

Beautiful hotel right on the Bay in Morro Bay, Ca. Jeff and Mollie Anderson own and operate the most elegant hotel on the Central Coast. Top of the line accommodations and the most gracious and helpful hosts anywhere. Highly recommend.
