This was a lovely choice. Clean and comfortable with beautiful vistas, we chose well. The small town of Morro Bay is very inviting and the hotel is across the street from the bay. A very nice place indeed.

My family and I took a road trip up to Morro Bay and stayed waterfront. We really enjoyed staying at the Embarcadero Inn. The rooms were spacious and clean! Our balcony overlooked the water so it was really nice watching the sunset from our balcony. This hotel is near all of the restaurants and shops and there is ample parking!... More

The Embarcadero Inn is well-located to access on foot many fine restaurants and shops, centrally located along the Morro Bay waterfront. There are almost no totally modern, 21st-Century motels in Morro and most properties are remodeled from older lodgings established way back in the 50s & 60s. Most motels are not part of chains, including this one. However, Embarcadero has... More

Sleepy Morro Bay is always a great place to visit as I do several times a year to cool off from the Central Valley and visit relatives. There are no Ritz Carltons or Westins in this little beach town. Most all the motels/hotels are ma and pa type operations so if you expect luxury, cabana boys, pool massages, and swim... More

Luckily we requested and got top floor, new buildings have gone up across the road so lower floors won't get much of a view, if any. Room 307 - can see most of the The Rock, watched sea otters from the balcony. Rooms better than basic, large and some with balcony. No air con, but room stayed pretty cool, but... More

We found this hotel through TA, and were very disappointed. It was rated one of the top hotels in Morro Bay - but maybe that's saying something about all of the hotels in Morro Bay! The hotel room felt unclean upon entering - it just didn't have a warm, welcoming ambiance. The heater was not working, so someone came up... More

This hotel is in a great location along the embarcadero of Morro Bay for drinks, shopping and dinner. We were upgraded to a suite which was huge and very nice with a nice view. Staff were very nice and professional.

Pleasant and proficient staff. The manager referred us to Windows on the Water Resturant and that location for dinner is now a must on our to do list while in Morro Bay. Thank you to the staff! We will surely rebook at the Embarcadero Inn. We book well in advance for busy periods to be sure to get a third... More

We managed to get a room here last minute on Memorial Day weekend. For the location and view, I think it was all good. I love Morro Bay, so I would stay here again when we do come back. Pros - location, right at the southend of Embarcadero - "bay view" from the rooms, if you are on the 2nd... More
