Although it's not a Holiday Inn Express, it was nice. They had new linens and flat screen tv's, and they replaced all mattresses,which was vey... More

Pleasantly surprised after reading all the negative reviews on travel advisory. We found out they are under new management as of 4/8/14....They have already made many positive changes! Such as new linen, new towels and new pillows! Beds are very comfortable and We would stay here again! Perfect location!

This place was is awful. We stayed in room 210...it had missing pictures from the walls. They cut the bathroom door so it doesn't hit the toilet. I kid you not!!! This place needs Hotel Impossible!...in addition I shall post pictures in the next day or so.

Dingy linens, mold in the shower, everything old and outdated. Could have done better at Motel 6 for much lower price. The wall heater was in such bad shape we were afraid to use it. Very overpriced for what we got!

We showed up to check in and this hadgi gets loud with me saying that we weren't charged when we know that we were, and then after we confirmed that it was "held and released" we explained what happened to him politely.

We booked a room just for staying over night, while driving from SF to LA. Room was old, dirty and dark. But the room was also cheap, and it did the trick. Service was a bit rude, but not terrible bad.

We found this motel on Hotels.com and it was a good deal - for a reason! Although it has a great location right near Morro Bay Rock and Embarcadero, we found ourselves shoved into a windowless room in the corner of this L-shaped motel. When we asked to be on the second floor we were told there were no rooms... More

Nice proprietor and comfortable room in a great town, close to the main drag. The facilities are a little run down and could use some refreshment but all in all, comfortable bed. "Adequate" is a good word (reading another review).

The room was adequate, but it is dated and the room had not been aired out before it was assigned. No bathtub or air conditioning. Room smell of Clorox when opening the door to the room. Beware if you want a room with a view of the bay it costs $15 dollars more.

Nice view of the bay and the Rock. Walking distance to the wharf. Fairly clean. The sheets didn't fit on our bed and the heater didn't work. Set the thermostat to 70 when we went to bed. Woke up at 3:00 freezing. Tried adjusting the thermostat to no avail. We just left at 4 in the morning. It was around... More
