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

My daughter made these reservations, my wife, daughter, granddaughter, and I were making a trip up to Monterey for a funeral from Los Angeles. We arrived around 6 pm and we were greeted by a most pleasant and friendly clerk Brittany. What a joy to deal with someone that was so warm and welcoming. More hotels should have someone like...

Where do I start?? Staff are very friendly and helpful. I felt like Brittany and Jessica where my daughters! They are the 2 sisters that work the front desk. Very upbeat and bubbly. I'm putting in a good word for them both to get a raise!!! :) We had a room with a view and the cool breeze coming in... More

Located at the southern end of the Embarcadero in Morro Bay, the Embarcadero Inn is a good place to use as a home base. The room was large and airy, though the bathroom was tight. The "partial" view was very good... the bay, the rock, beautiful sunsets, etc. The biggest negative (though given the view it's may be the "price... More

My husband, daughter and I just returned from a 2 night mini family vacation to Morro Bay. The location of The Embarcadero Inn is great...it's walking distance to everything, it's further down toward the quieter part which is great. Rooms are really clean and the views from the balcony are amazing! The ladies at the front desk are really friendly... More

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.
