I was frankly surprised at the quality of this hotel since I booked it last minute without much comparison. Rooms were very clean and well appointed, common areas were bright and clean also. The included breakfast was excellent and was in a nicely decorated room on the third floor that also had some outside seating. Hotel was a short drive... More

We never even got to stay here because of a medical need that came up after 35 days on the road. I tried to cancel the room but they refused to issue a refund. Yes, I was beyond their time for cancellation but other hotels during my trip were willing to work with me. This is the only one who... More

Stayed here while visiting our daughter for Parent & Family weekend @ Cal Poly SLO and found the accommodations very nice as well as the value. Views off the patio for our breakfast were very nice. Great value for the money.

Hotel is nice and clean. We had a great view of Morro Rock. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Initially we had a standard room with no view and the staff upgraded us to a pet friendly room with a great view. The room was immaculate and would have never know it was a pet friendly room.

We really enjoyed our stay in the small town of Morro Bay. The hotel is in a great location to walk to most everything. From Morro Bay we did day trips to Solvang, the Hearst Castle and some other beach resorts nearby. The breakfast was good and the staff were all very friendly. The Groupon rate was fantastic, however it... More

I really enjoyed my stay. The hotel was clean/well kept, the room was very spacious, as well as the hallway. Rarely did I hear another guest. The breakfast was perfect to start the day. Loved the fact that parking was included. Wifi was very good as well - easy to connect to and excellent signal strength. I did search on... More

This great hotel and staff helped make our 3-day vacation stay memorable and enjoyable. Excellent location--just a short walk to the harbor. Our room had a full view of the "rock", the majestic volcanic plug that makes Morrow Bay the "Gibraltar of the Pacific". Good breakfast in the 3rd floor dining room, e.g. waffles, eggs, cereal etc. We were new... More

We decided on a Thursday to get away for the weekend and my wife suggested Morro Bay. I looked on line and saw that the prices were pretty high all over town, but I had already promised my wife so... La Serena was booked. We got a 3rd floor southern corner suite and it was perfect. The reason for the... More

Excellent location, free parking, well-kept and recently upgraded furniture and electronics. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Decent wi-fi, excellent cable pkg, good free morning breakfast, and the package store nearby has a deli and short-order counter with a cook that makes great burgers. A winner, three blocks from the Embarcadero shopping/restaurant at the water's edge.

Booked this on a special price through Amazon Prime. Glad we got a reduced rate because in my opinion this older place needs some upgrades especially sound proofing. Couldn't figure if it was above, below or in the next room but heard people talking for about an hour after they got back to their room. Fortunately they packed it in... More
