If you are looking for a clean and friendly place to steal away, this is the place for you! Jessica, is far more than the frint desk clerk. That woman wears the hat of light housekeeper, cable repairman, therapist, amongst other things. She absolutely makes or breaks the experience of the guest. She keeps a smile throughout! The rooms are... More

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night getaway to Morro Bay. We were originally booked at The Inn at Morro Bay but due to poor reviews about their ongoing construction we decided to find another hotel. We read reviews about several and decided to follow advice from fellow travelers and try to book a room on the... More

The Embarcadero Inn is the best to stay in Morro bay. It's walking distance to everything but down toward the quieter end away from the tourists looking in the shops. I've been there four times and it has always been clean, comfortable, and the staff more than helpful. Don't go anywhere else.

The staff was welcoming, nice and efficient. Breakfast area better was than expected, my kids loved making waffles. Hotel is across the road from the bay with the nice view of the Morro Rock. Spa area is small. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Room was decent size,I wish their bathroom would've been updated. Overall value is OK.

My daughter, myself, grandson (5 yrs. old) and granddaughter (8 yrs. old) stayed for one day and night. We will definitely go back again. The woman, Jessica, who greeted us was so nice and helpful. Late at night when she was on her way home we bumped into her on our search for hot water, it was past 10 pm... More

The staff was welcoming when we arrived. We had covered off street parking a big plus. The Embarcadero Inn is walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The room was clean and comfortable. We love to stay often. Have reservations for a new visit!

One thing to consider you don't read anywhere: sea lions are noisy and bark randomly all night. Best stay away from the water and get a decent nights sleep. The hotel rooms are relatively small and value is OK, just.

Thank you for your comments about your stay with us. We're sorry that the sea lions were so verbal during your visit but that is one of the things that makes Morro Bay and the Embarcadero Inn so attractive. Our slogan is 'Stay close to nature" and it's true. Our hotel is located on the waterfront where sea birds, otters... More

My husband and I stayed at the Embarcadero Inn on a recent trip to Morro Bay. It was wonderful! We had the Deluxe King room on the 3rd floor. Our balcony overlooked the harbour, Morro Rock and Embarcadero Street. The room was quite large, comfy and very quiet. Loved the romantic fireplace. Everything was clean and neat. Had a small...

This was our 5th time to stay here. We love the convenience of this location. We always book room 302 which has a fantastic view. It is clear that they now need to spend some money updating a few things. The mattresses are very worn out and broken down. They should be replaced. The huge pile of pillows is all... More

Thank you for staying with us so often and providing us with your comments. As with many independently owned and operated hotels, refurbishing is done on a rotation basis, which means there are a few rooms that are the last to be done. That will be remedied soon. We agree with you about the WiFi and have recently replaced the... More
