Stayed two nights at Embarcadero Inn the end of June. Found place by accident, as were looking to stay at Estero Inn, which was booked up. Our friends and ourselves got two king size rooms with fireplaces on the second floor with views of the bay. The Inn is across the street from the bay, and some of the rooms... More

Outdated decor. Carpets need to be replaced. Very limited space in bathroom sink area + poor lighting. Door to toilet shower area just barely clears front of toilet. Our toilet seat was loose...need to wear your seatbelt! If it matters to you, cable TV reception is very poor. Location only positive as there is virtually no voise--partial view room had... More

We were traveling up the California Coast and wanting lodging facilities that were reasonably priced, clean, comfortable, convenient, and near the water. The Embarcadero Inn was just right. It is across one street from the harbor, and we enjoyed strolling along the water looking at the boats, the birds, and the sea otters. We were within walking distance of an... More

The Embarcadero Inn is a wonderful place to stay. The breakfast is excellent, the rooms are clean, but most of all it is very quiet!

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 Decor is outdated, but Morro Bay is a bit campy anyway.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
