Firstly, La Serena was decorated so tastefully for the season. The artwork is beautiful and the rooms were spacious, immaculate, and stylish. This hotel has wonderful views, friendly, welcoming staff and a super location. Our second floor room had a perfect Morro Rock view. The hotel manager, Jill, gave wonderful directions for an exceptional sunset view and amazing restaurant choices.... More

We found the rooms clean, mattresses very old with lumps >10 years? The breakfast was very limited, two choices of cereals rice krispies and cheerios, instant oatmeal, oranges and apples, a neat waffle maker that made 4 small waffles otherwise not much. The housekeeping stopped by once during our stay.

This location is fantastic -- walking distance to everything. Breakfast was nice, with healthy options and good coffee. Family friendly, great location, clean rooms. The bed... More

We picked this because it was one of very few hotels with air conditioning, and we needed it! It is older and could use some work, repairs, etc.The lights in our room were so few and dim that we borrowed a lamp from the hall. The shower was great! The laundry room was dirty. Floor not cleaned before we arrived... More

Overpriced for what you get, but that is expected for Morro Bay. If you stay during the week it is much cheaper. Could use an update, but it does retain some character with the older furnishings. Clean with all the usual amenities. The breakfast is standard:You better like waffles. Nice staff, lots of eye candy at the front desk. good... More

We found this hotel via a hotel discount website's mystery deal. We were not sure what to expect after the hotel name was revealed as we have never heard of it. As it turned out, we couldn't have been more pleased with the place. Our two-queen room was on the 3rd floor. The room is very roomy, and we liked... More

liked this hotel very much. will try to stay there in the future. great coffee shop nearby (the rock)(walking distance). free breakfast at hotel is OK, nothing special. there is an excellent restaurant nearby, Harada's (Japanese), excellent food, a little pricey by SLO standards, but worth every penny.
