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

Easy walk to the waterfront. Sometimes a little less easy to return, uphill to the hotel. Very clean, comfortable rooms. Quiet location. Very friendly staff. Would definitely recommend it to friends. Can't wait to return.

The hotel people were very friendly and helpful. The room was wonderful. Super clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom was very clean and modern. I really liked the bathtub as it was new and very clean. We were there for two nights, on a weekday. Very quiet and nice. The free breakfast could have been a little better by adding... More

My husband and I needed to “get away from it all” So we decided to go to Morro Bay for the weekend and stayed at the La Serena Inn. The Front Desk Service was excellent.

I've stayed at this hotel numerous times and always enjoy coming back. This time, in the off-season, I was expecting to get a much better rate. Instead, it was more expensive. We had a balcony on the side of the hotel with a view of the bay, which we had requested. Wrong time of year to try to enjoy the... More

It is extremely rare that I would leave a scathing review about a business. Our overall stay at La Serena inn was okay. The room was good sized and had a balcony. The breakfast room was nice but the breakfast was mediocre. I never complain about a free breakfast because I am not expecting much, but they could really do... More

I meet my brother in Morro Bay every year. This is our first time at La Serena Inn. Far and away our best Morro Bay hotel experience. Big clean rooms, excellent front desk staff, and good breakfast with scenic views on the outdoor patio. We will return here often!

Excellent location, choose sea view and balcony. Spacious room very clean and staff friendly. We paid slightly more than a chain hotel but worth every penny. The best hotel we have stayed in this trip. A three min walk and you're on the wharf with seals and sea otters - perfect location!
