This is a nice, smaller hotel with a pretty view of the rock. The room decor is outdated but it was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. It is a few short blocks from the water as well as all the shops and restaurants downtown, if you're walking it all uphill on the way back, fyi! The walls... More

Again met up with the 'boys' for our annual visit and The La Serena Inn did not disappoint. Clean , quiet, great staff, of course perfect weather makes it even all better. Walked down to Dorns for dinner and the night is complete. Breakfast on the 3rd floor is always nice...See you next year

Labor day weekend, last minute trip was great. We stayed in a King room on the 3rd floor with a rock and bay/ocean view. Great staff. We were tired when we arrived and didn't feel like going out to dinner so we called the front desk to find out who in the area (beside pizza and chineese) would deliver to... More

Clean rooms, great king size bed and breakfast is included. Walk to all restaurants in Morro a Bay. I would stay here again! Walk to Morro rock and you will see sea otters and seals in the bay. Excellent staff and hotel was quiet.

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
