We just stayed at the La Serena Inn for the past 6 days and found it a great place to escape the heat of LA in the summer. It is a AAA inn that is affordable, clean, with large rooms and double sinks in each room. The refrigerator was very large and cold so we could bring in food to... More

My family and I are looking for a hotel to stay in Morro Bay. Because of the good reviews we found on tripadvisor, I decided to directly contact La Serena Inn instead of booking online to see how much discount we can get since we are AAA members. This is what their website shows: "Please contact our friendly staff at... More

We booked this hotel on points so we weren't too sure of what to expect. We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the hotel and the location to the attractions of Morro Bay. The gentleman working the front desk was very nice but wasn't sure of places to go as he couldn't point us in the direction of the... More

We stayed here with the purchase of an Amazon Local deal. It was for an overnight stay while visiting our son in a nearby town. The hotel was very quiet. The room and bed were comfortable. Even though he hotel is up a couple of blocks from the main drag, we still had a view of Morro Rock. A free... More

This hotel was a little gem- quiet, relaxing and the room was spacious. The front desk staff were great and we loved this little quaint town. The decor is a little dated but it is very clean and the beds are comfortable. The age of the hotel was comparable to the other hotels in the area so considering that it... More

Nice hotel close to the rock with free continental breakfast. There was a computer and printer in the common area of our floor for guest use. The room was plenty big for our family of four. It's very close to walking around the water and the rock.

You can walk to everything in Morro Bay. We stayed in a "partial rock view" room (206)...well ok we couldn't see the bottom of the rock....so I guess, but it was a super great view. Clean, amicable hotel. Absolutely no complaints from us..easily would stay here again

Very comfortable, clean, convenient hotel within walking distance to Morro Rock, stores and restaurants. Friendly, welcoming staff. Dog-friendly, which we really appreciate. Morro Bay is a tranquil coastal town that makes for a great stop en route Hearst Castle/Big Sur.

Room was spacious and we had enough room for the family! Visiting Morrow Bay is always so relaxing and La Serena Inn is a good place to stay and not break the bank! The breakfast was included and convenient for our family.

Nice property, great location, easy walk to the Embarcadero to eat and shop. Friendly staff, large rooms (great for my husband and I who bring our bicycles for the weekend). Continental breakfast is OK, located on the third floor, dine inside or outside on the deck. WiFi is a little weak. Comfortable bed!
