Having stayed at this nice hotel before, my wife and I decided to take a visiting European executive to see the interesting Morro rock and so all three of us stayed at this hotel. Everything was perfect as last time, but this time we encountered two unpleasant experiences. As the hotel is not equipped with AC, only heating, we had... More

Love this hotel. If not for the building in front of us we would have had a beautiful view of the rock. The lady at check in was the best. My wife didn't like the room we were in upon check in so the clerk changed our room to a larger room with a better view for a nominal charge.... More

I was so impressed by the staff at Embarcadero Inn. They truly went above and beyond to accomodate guests. We had a wondeful room with balcony and a fireplace. It was very romantic and peaceful. The moring continental breakfast was much more than just donuts. I love Morro Bay and love this hotel. It will be on my trip list... More

We arrived at about 2 AM and the keys were waiting for us as promised. The room was spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable. We had limited view of the harbor across the street but it was fine. Breakfast was good. We would definitely go back to this hotel next time we visit Morro Bay.

We went to the Embarcadero Inn for a women's get away. It worked out great for us. The location was perfect and we walked everywhere instead of driving. Our rooms were comfortable and with there being 7 of us, we comfortably fit in one person's room for our evening get togethers. The breakfast at the hotel worked well for us.... More

We will be staying here the next time we come to Morro Bay! Enjoyed the office staff, they made us feel welcomed. The room was very nice, great view and comfortable. The maids were also very nice. I can't say enough about our stay we really had a wonderful time!

This is a perfect place to stay in Morro Bay. We booked several rooms for our yearly reunion of friends, and everything--from the inn's location to the well-stocked breakfast room--was just what we wanted. You can walk everywhere from this place, and the view is superb.

Staff was great - easy check-in and out, great suggestions for dining and touring. Hotel property was a little tired but location on the main thoroughfare made up for it. Box fan in the room helped with the lack of air conditioning but we're not always comfortable having to leave the slider to the deck open all night for fresh... More

We stayed one night at the Embarcadero Inn. The reasons for booking this property were location, view of the rock, and hot tub. It was a great location for strolling down the waterfront (but go to dinner before 8! our first choice restaurant closed early because there were no customers). We had a nice view of the estuary, sunset, and... More

So glad you chose to stay with us and enjoyed your experience. We put a lot of emphasis on our amenities and first and foremost is getting the most of that view from your room. That's why the hot tub is located on the back side of the hotel where it's also more serene. Thank you for staying with us... More
