This is a must-stay place in a wonderful old fishing and sailing village. This hotel is new, has only 8 rooms. Get a room on the second floor for privacy from people walking along the boardwalk. Sunset suite is the primo room: windows on water and village sides, outdoor patio, great queen bed, NEW bathroom and shower, on-site parking. Breakfast-... More

Last minute reservation at the Estero Inn. Owner and staff friendly and helpful. View of the bay and walking distance to restaurants and nightlife. Small town setting on the bay is just what we wanted for the night.

So I have stayed in two different rooms, The Morro Rock & Sandy Dunes Suites, and I tell ya, this place doesn't have a bad view!! All patois on the upper... More

The Estero Inn in Morro Bay is a small boutique hotel where you get a very warm welcome upon arrival both from the staff and an otter swimming in the bay. We had booked the Sunset Suite on the upper floor and had no problems getting our luggage up there since this small hotel even has an elevator. Entering our... More

We were here only for one night in the middle of a road trip. Check in was wonderful. Really friendly and helpful staff. The location of this hotel is great, as it is very close to the main strip of shops and restaurants. Our room, the Bay View, had a lovely view of the harbour right up close and I... More

I just retired and wanted to get away from the heat for a few days. Morro Bay is quiet and secluded not like Pismo Beach. The Estero Inn got great reviews so i thought I'd try it. It sits right at the edge of the bay. Great location. I walked everywhere I wanted to go. Must be very well built... More

Warm welcome from friendly staff on arrival and very kindly upgraded to a room with a "better view". Room generously sized and well presented. Excellent location within easy reach of bars and restaurants. Free car parking and free wi-fi an added bonus. Would definitely stay here again if we visit Morro in the future.

We picked this hotel amid many to choose from and are thrilled that we did. The room, sunset room, is great. The fireplace is nice, the balcony and view of the rock are fantastic and the staff have been very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again, no need to look elsewhere.

Service is way above average here since there are only 8 units to manage. I will warn you however that the pictures on the website utilized a very wide angle lens and the suites are actually quite smaller than the lens predicts. Having said that, they are exceptionally clean and very up to date. You can tell everywhere you turn... More

My husband and I had been driving route 1 for an entire day and really needed to get our heads down. This little hotel on Morro Bay was just beautiful. We arrived just as the sun was setting and it was a spectacular view of the bay from our balcony. The ocean view room was large yet cosey. We lay... More
