This was our first stay in Morro Bay. What a fun and peaceful place to visit. But what made it so awesome was the Embarcadero Inn. Great location with great harbor view. The front desk staff was very professional, maybe could have been a little more cheerful but actually had our room available a little early. Parking was covered and... More

If you want somewhere clean and comfy to stay for a stop over this is your place, if you want something more then go somewhere else. This hotel has good big rooms which are clean and the hotel is in a nice convenient location. The breakfast is pretty basic and you eat it in what looks like a staff canteen.... More

Great little hotel in a beautiful location. Very comfortable room. Everything clean and neat. Get up early and go for a walk along the waterfront. Very picturesque and tranquil (if you don't look at the power station). Seals on the other side of the estuary. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a contemporary building with large, comfortable rooms, and well kept. Decor is outdated, but Morro Bay is a bit campy anyway. Very good comp breakfast. Beware the rooms with "restricted view". It is like being in a tunnel. My other complaint was the surly attendant that checked us in: she treated us as if we were teenagers about... More

The Embarcadero Inn takes pride in making every attempt to make staying at the Inn a pleasant experience. I'm sorry things did not go well at your check in. We do have a strong no smoking policy and no pet policy we need to explain to each guest. We are glad the young ladies were able to make your experience... More

We've stayed in several hotels in Morro Bay. Most have been somewhat disappointing with thin walls, poor views and/or aging decor and fixtures. The Embaradero Inn was excellent. We had room 303 (top floor) with a king bed, fireplace, balcony and a view of the harbor. Although the hotel is on the east side of Embarcadero Road, our view was... More

Thank you for all the nice compliments. Sounds like you were able to get in some golf while you were here as well. Morro Bay has two golf courses nearby, Dairy Creek located on Highway one about 6 miles away and of course the Morro Bay Golf course just one mile from the hotel. Hope to see you again real... More

We stayed here a couple of night on the way to San Francisco. The rooms were huge, very clean and classy. You can see Morro Rock from your balcony. Morro bay is rather small, you can walk to all the shops and restaurants. If you have time, go see the Morro Rock, and walk around the bay. There is also... More

We at the Embarcadero Inn are very happy you had a great experience. Second floor rooms are the same floor as the jacuzzi and third floor rooms are same floor as the breakfast room. Either way you have a great view. We look forward to seeing you again real soon. More

I travel to central California several times per year for work. This time I stayed at the Embarcadero Inn. To start off, it is very easy to find. It has a great location, you can park your car and walk to all the great restaurants, shops, even over to Morro Rock to watch the Sea Otters and the surf. The... More

This is an informal well appointed laid back hotel in a great location for all Morro Bay amenities. The rooms are right on the water front with a full or partial sea view (we had a partial sea view) but could still hear the sea otters cracking shells in the bay and watch the sun set from our balcony.

I'm late in writing, but I definitely don't want to overlook the opportunity to commend the Inn. We've stayed a few times now and every time we return, we love it all the more. As other reviewers have noted, it's quiet, clean, a great location, not so ridiculously expensive that folks like us are priced out of a rare, carefully-chosen... More

Would go back here in second. We were amazed at the location (right on the waterfront, next to a park so it was nice and quiet), and the unencumbered view from the patio - The beautiful harbor and the rock. And it was a great value given the location and the amenities. The fireplace in the room is an extra... More
