We loved the hotel. Very quaint and the staff is friendly. They gave us a free upgrade, too! We went for Valentine's weekend and I couldn't have picked a better place. Close to everything and a beautiful view of the ocean. Great continental breakfast selection as well. (major plus in my book!). I loved it and I think you will... More

My family stayed at the Embarcadero Inn over President's Day weekend. It was busier than usual since it was also Valentine's Day that weekend. You would never have known! Everyone in the office was extremely nice and helpful as they always are. Even though they were busy, we never had a problem with parking and our room was always spotless.... More

Clean rooms, parking was tight but clean premises. It would have been nice if they'd included something special like champagne or wine for Valentines day like other places nearby. However, the breakfast was very good, kitchen was claen. I enjoyed the spa room and movie rentals and the view from our room was amazing!

Once again, over 30 years, this hotel is the best in town. I come from a seaside resort and this way better. Hotel staff is outstanding, rooms have everything you could ask for and it's right on the water. Three blissful nights and days, I never sleep better than when I visit here. The free breakfast is far better than... More

This hotel was a rare find and near the end of the embarcadero. The rooms were immaculate and with all the amities. Not only was it extremely clean but it came with a fireplace, a great view of the bay from a roomy and private balcony. However, you will need to ask for the street side room to get the... More

A very nice room, not a bad view, a satisfactory breakfast. But we cut our vacation short because of an on-again, off-again hot water problem. It would be hot one morning, cold the next. Same in the evening. We complained, they fixed it, an hour later it was cold again. We put up with this nonsense for three days, then... More

We are so sorry your recent stay with us wasn't up to our normal high quality pleasant experience. For some reason, when maintenance is performed on the water lines, it takes days for the system to recoup to its optimum levels. That just means that it takes much longer for the hot water to arrive to some rooms. Thank you... More

Dear Trip Advisor, I'm not sure what the difference is between "Terrible" and "Poor", but I wish there was an option between "Average" and "Very Good". Because we felt that the Embarcadero Inn was Good, but not necessarily Very Good. The Front Desk staff were nice and helpful. The approach to the rooms is via an open veranda walkway down... More

Thank you so much for your candid remarks about your recent stay. The hotel was built to optimize the view from every room which necessitated that the access to the rooms be in the rear of the building. Due to the light moisture in the coastal air, the hallways to the rooms have to be carpeted to eliminate the potential... More

The staff was friendly and the rooms are clean and beautiful. The bed and bedding was super comfy.The view of the bay was gorgeous and it didn't hurt that there wasn't a cloud in the sky the two days we were there. So many great seafood restaurants, all within walking distance.

My wife and I were on a road trip up the California Coast and decided to stay in Morro Bay, booking the Embarcadero Inn on short notice. We were given a great room with a balcony and full view of the bay and Morro rock for a very good price, based on a seasonal discount. We enjoyed the first day... More

We stay here at least once a year. The location is the best it's where everyone likes to go. The view is great, great view of the rock and the bay. Rooms are very clean. Staff offers great service. Close to everything. If you never stayed in Morro Bay this is the hotel to stay at. They give a pretty... More
