We arrived late in the afternoon, greeted by the nicest and most informative front desk clerk. She provided info that a local would enjoy. Greatly appreciated! Morro Bay was very relaxing and a nice place to visit. They have water sports, great seafood and it is all within walking distance of the Hotel. Hotel was bright and clean. We did... More

We were very pleased with our stay at this hotel. We could easily walk to the waterfront, shops, restaurants. The room, itself, had several amenities, including a microwave, refrigerator and 2 bathroom sinks (a nice plus). Bed was very comfortable. The inside halls of the inn were very spacious and decorated with artwork, like an expensive hotel. There was also... More

We had a great room (king tempurpedic) with a fantastic view of the bay and rock. Easy walking to restaurants, jain streets and the waterfront. Great greakfast offerings with sel-serve belgian waffles, eggs, padtries, fruit and cereals. Staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating.

We regularly drive up to Morro to de-stress and have tried several hotels. Since we discovered La Serena, we don't stay anywhere else. The rooms are very comfortable with many amenities like refrigerator, microwave, etc. which we don't use but nice to know they're there. The staff is very accommodating and we always get a top, third floor, room which... More

About a mile or so from the "rock", this Inn is close to many points of interest and within easy walking distance of much that Morrow Bay has to offer. The staff at check-in are very helpful and the map, info sheets, and personal tips are something the visitor should plan on asking for. The rooms (ours was room 211)... More

I travelled by myself and felt very safe in the hotel and the surrounding area. The staff really made me feel at home. They even did a little something nice for me because they knew it was my birthday and I was making up for the last one. There are a lot of cozy little motels in Morro Bay. This... More

Good location, quiet rooms, and a nice breakfast. I really enjoyed the small tips about Morro bay as we were only passing by, and didn't know much about the area. The deck view is unfortunetely behind glass, so that we couldn't see Morro rock very good while having breakfast. But we decided to go to the seashore, which was only... More

We spent a night in the Serena Inn on our way to San Francisco. We were looking for a comfortable and affordable room and we have not been disappointed. The Serena Inn is conveniently located close to the seafront. Breakfast was pretty much what you'd expect in this class of hotels. To me this is a perfectly good place for... More
