We found this in a Coupon brochure and am so glad we did. We stayed on the Second floor with a partial view....I would definately recommend staying on the 3rd floor with a full bay view as the sunsets are terrific and this place is just so relaxing. The room was quite large, clean and had everything we needed. The... More

Stayed at the Embarracado Inn for one night on the drive up the coast. Great place to stay nice clean hotel and superb room with huge bed and lots of space along with a nice of view of the bay. If you do stay here though just be aware that after about 9 o’clock at night Morro Bay effectively closes... More

We happened to be vacationing during the Mid-State fair, so accommodations were either very expensive or not available. We wanted to find something close to Cambria or San Simeon, but there were no available rooms that didn't break the bank. After spending 2 1/2 days trying to find a reasonably priced hotel near the ocean, we came across the Embarcadero... More

I almost always start my reviews with whether or not I'd stay at a place again, since that's the most important question. I guess the best I can come up with here is maybe. My wife certainly would. So let me start with the negatives and go from there, and you can decide. First, the web site and even the... More

I had been looking for an economy hotel and booked this one since the price was right, but we were stunned at how luxurious it actually was. The room is very large and every room faces the water. The town is awesome too!!! I will definitely go back!

We booked this hotel as walk-ins and paid $78 for a very spacious double room, replete with a microwave, refrigerator and plenty of storage for groceries. We had a nice little balcony to watch the sun set behind the Rock at Morro Bay. The room was genuinely clean, the towels were fluffy, the bed was very comfortable. Walking distance to... More

This is one of the Hotels that we return to year after year. The rooms are large, clean, well appointed, conservationally aware and with a beautiful view of the marina, bay and Morro rock from the balcony. The staff is always friendly, and the hotel is a beautiful and quiet time of reflection for us. It is always the last... More

We stayed at your establishment on Thursday evening, September 6, 2007. We were in Room 311. I have to say that I was quite disappointed that I was not told at check in (approx 4:30 pm) that your rooms did not have AC. I found out after checking in and going up to the room and getting settled in. We... More

We chose to spend a night in Morro Bay before visiting Hearst Castle while driving up the CA coast from LA to San Fran last week. We were accompanied by our 2 teenaged grandsons and knew they would be interested in the great rock at Morro Bay and also wanted them to see a real fishing village. The Embarcadero Inn... More

This hotel is in a great location. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. They have good coffee in the morning. I thought this hotel was a great value.
