A friendly email before you arrive and a warm welcome when you check in started our stay at Anderson Inn. What a charming Inn and welcoming owners (Mollie and Jeff). With a great view of the Bay, magical sunset and that long stretch of beach makes Morro Bay a gem along the Central Coast. The spacious, clean room with a... More

Such a beautiful family-run inn with an amazing view of Morro Bay. The owners are so kind and think of everything for your comfort. We really loved the room. Our dinner at The Galley was delicious too.

My husband and I were looking for someplace new along the coast to visit and stumbled on Morro Bay. After looking at the reviews here on TripAdvisor I chose the Anderson Inn-and couldn't have been happier. Even before I arrived I was greeted by an email from Mollie, welcoming me to the area, offering me assistance in finding a place... More

We stayed here for one night coming in from LA. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Our room was pretty big, clean and spacious. We had a wonderful view of Morro Rock. If you're planning a trip to Morro Bay, try Anderson Inn. It has a friendly atmosphere and a good location. Overall - 4/5

Being active in the 5-star hotel industry, we always look for unique experiences. During a drive to San Francisco, we stayed at the Anderson Inn at Morro Bay. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by one of the three owners, Molly. Her hospitable welcome was great and made us feel comfortable immediately. We had the best room at the... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Anderson Inn while driving down HWY 1. Morro Bay is a very cute town! We stayed at the Anderson Inn and it is a beautiful boutique hotel. Mollie was very sweet and very attentive. She really made us feel welcomed. The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. We were... More

We stayed 2 nights here with the lovely Mollie and Jeff whilst on the way down to LA. It is the most perfect guest house in a stunning position overlooking the bay and the sand strip. There are only 8 rooms and we were lucky enough to face one with a balcony facing the water where we spent a very... More

My wife and I have been fans of the Anderson Inn since we first visited in June of 2014, and they did not disappointed this year. The over-the-water suites with the balcony are a must. They overlook the water and one can watch kayakers and canoers, fishing boats and party boats, paddle boarders and diving birds, seals and otters, and... More

We had one night here while travelling down the coast. What a fantastic place! Great location, great rooms and the best service you could imagine. It is family run and they did everything they could to make us feel comfortable. Highly recommended!! I only regret we couldn't stay longer....
