Took our family of 7 on a drive up the coast and stopped for a night here in early August. They gave us a great rate on two rooms (ask for the AAA rate if you are a member) and delivered on their promise of two rooms next door to each other. I first used the web to see if... More

This was my third visit to Morro Bay and the La Serena Inn is the nicest place I've stayed. The staff is friendly, helpful, and go the extra mile to make sure everything goes well. After I had checked in and unloaded my car, I heard a loud,clattering noise. On investigation, there was a young man filling a large plastic... More

We read other reviews and decided to try La Serena Inn for our stay at Morro Bay. It exceeded all of our expectations. The rooms were very clean and very spacious. We had a nice view of the bay. It was an easy walk to downtown so no need to move the car. We felt very safe, even sleeping with... More

We stayed here for one night in late June 2014. The location was convenient to the downtown shops and the wharf. The room was clean, the staff was great. The rooms had coffee, microwave and small fridge and were quite large. The bed was comfy. Breakfast was make-your-own waffles, hardboiled eggs, cereal and pastries in a nice room with a... More

My husband and I agree on this: we have found a new 'home away from home' when wandering through Morro Bay. Quiet and peaceful. Very helpful front desk and friendly staff. Comfortable bed. Thanking the hotel for their attention to detail!

To say we enjoyed a four day stay at La Serena - Morro Bay, is an understatement! The room was near the elevator on the 2nd floor, and, but for luggage being rolled across a tile floor during checkin/out, was serene and comfy. Large room, king bed and bathroom is tastefully decorated. We travel a lot, cross-country with our quiet,... More

My family and I stayed here on a trip down the coast last month via Groupon and it was such a good deal! The room was clean and comfortable, the staff was very friendly, the kids loved the waffle machines, and the location was great, I'd definitely stay here again and recommend it to others!
