5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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....

We stayed here one night on our honeymoon drive up the coast, and the only problem was we didn't stay longer! The host was one of the nicest people we have ever met, genuinely interested in people and ensuring their stay is perfect. The room we stayed in was stunning with it's soaring ceiling and perfectly decor. We had an... More

The location is perfect, the rooms wonderful with marvellous bathrooms, the owners welcoming and firendly without being overly effusive......would recommend in a heartbeat. Make sure that you don't miss The Galley restaurant next door

Spent 3 nights here in june. The hosts could not have been nicer. The only downside (or upside) depending on your point of view, is that it is right in the middle of the tourist/shopping area. Not particularly quiet and diminished our enjoyment of our balcony. Rooms were very nice and we ate at the Galley restaurant twice because it... More

What a wonderful experience to stay at this family-run inn in Morro Bay. We were lucky enough to be able to stay in an ocean front room a few weeks ago on our way up the coast. Morro Bay was a highlight, watching the otters and seals frolic in the water under our feet. The room was well appointed with... More

Charming inn, excellent bedrooms and great welcome, very good location for visiting Hearst at San Simeon. Strongly recommend the inn as a stopping point between San Franciso and Los Angeles. Morro is very nice with amazing Morro rock. However, town is also worth seeing as an example of corporate greed as dominated by an ugly decommissioned power station which the... More
