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

We stayed one night on Jan 14th 2015. The weather was gorgeous and the price was right $116 plus tax of $15.08. Our room was on third floor (#314). We had a view of the harbor and while out on the small balcony you could see a peek view of the "rock" if you looked around the "extended overhang on... More

The hotel is located across the street from the bay, it has some of the best views in town. We had a wonderful view of the bay and a partial view of the rock. We had booked the suite on the end specifically for this occasion (lighted boat Christmas parade) because we wanted that view for the parade. This wasn't... More

I highly recommend this hotel for several reasons: 1) Very nice rooms, with very nice views at a reasonable price; 2) Excellent customer service; 3) Very conveniently located. The King water view room we had was beautiful, roomy, and had a great view of the bay/harbor and Rock. Our first night there was ruined, however, because of an extremely noisy... More

A nice hotel in this small town. We stayed for a night on the way from Monterey to Santa Barbara. The rooms are large with twin beds and with a great view overlooking the embarcadero and the big rock. For a hotel in this small place the amenities provided were surprisingly good - a fridge in the room, free wifi,... More
