My wife and I came here to celebrate our 1st anniversary. They did everything right. VERY courteous, friendly, helpful, and without a doubt, professional. The room, for a suite, was a bit small, but for considering the size of the property, it was very adequate. The bed was comfortable and the wrap around balcony off our room and the view... More

We were unsure about Morro Bay until we discovered this establishment. Superb location, the best and excellent accommodation. A seriously well run establishment with front desk staff to match. We would have loved to extend our stay there. Our accommodation was perfect. Very spacious and confortable with superb views. Thank you

My husband and I had nice gateway at Morro bay- a sleepy sea side town in central coast. We love the location of this hotel. It is at the end of the shopping and dinning strip. So it is a lot quieter. This inn seems very new to me and it's probably one of the newest hotel in town. We... More

This place is really first class. Great views from the upstairs suites (with elevator). Accommodations in the rooms are all fresh and clean. The complimentary breakfast (7-11) includes just about everything. Located within walking distance of the wharf and all the shops. Morro Bay is a nice clean tourist town on the California coast Located right on the water on... More

This charming boutique hotel is located on the Embarcadero of Morro Bay--fantastic for a first visit. The friendly, gracious, professional staff gave us an upgrade to an ocean view suite with direct view of the Morro Rock. We enjoyed watching the sun set on the shoulder of the rock and the rock itself gradually disappearing from sight in the morning... More

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.

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
