This Inn has a great location on the water front, with easy walking to restaurants and shops. And the room was nicely furnished, with lots of amenities. BUT they have tried to put too much into a small space. The room was really small, so that they didn't provide a table at each side of the bed; there was a... More

The Estero is a small property, but well located and very nice. it was clean as a pin. It is right on the water. Rooms are exposed to the street so be sure and lock up at night (it is a very safe area though). There is an elevator to move bags to the second floor. The office appears not... More

While planning a trip down the coast from San Fransisco to LA , I had come across The Estero hotel in Morro Bay. It had gotten good reviews on trip advisor so I booked it for myself. It was the perfect place to stop over along our journey. My husband and I stayed there for two nights. I had chosen... More

This is a small hotel sitting right on the waterfront in Morro Bay. The rooms are clean and well-furnished (including microwave and refrigerator), the staff is very friendly and helpful, and the continental breakfast is definitely worth it (I recommend the waffles). Best are the views, particularly the Sunset Suite and the Bay View Suite which directly overlook Morro Bay... More

Stopped here during a road trip up the California coast, and ended up having an unplanned visit to this beautiful town. There were some unpromising- looking hotels on the way through town, but it is totally worth heading a bit further down to the sea for this hotel. It is clean and new, well equipped and with amazing views. The... More

Delightful place, not just the location but the charming, super-helpful staff. There's no staff overnight but there is an emergency number to call.The breakfast room has an ice machine but it's locked overnight and sometimes during the day. The coffee is above average. We didn't try the baked goods, but there was a generous selection. Lots of restaurants in walking... More

Great Find Recently a friend and I travelled up the California coast from Santa Monica to Carmel. Estero Inn made our stop in Morro Bay a wonderful surprise. Our room was absolutely delightful, so comfortable and inviting but more importantly it was immaculate. The fireplace was an added bonus.It’s the first time I’ve ever unpacked in a hotel. The staff... More

Love this inn! They made it so nice for my birthday with champagne, roses, and birthday balloons! So sweet. Room was super cozy right over the lovely bay. Free kayak rental and complimentary wine tasting nearby. Wonderful experience!
