My room was clean, the hotel is in a perfect location, and I could not have been happier about the size of the room, refrigerator, microwave, and realtive quiet of the hotel. However, I had a continual problem with staff charging my bank card in error. The hotel is fine, just beware of giving your credit card numbers. The staff... More

The hotels listed are really the ones I would recommend. I've stayed in the Embarcadero Inn, but that was in the early 90s when I attended a function at the popular Morro Bay Yacht Club across the street. I've also stayed at the Inn at Morro Bay, across from the golf course. It used to be called "The Golden Tee".... More

We stopped in Morro Bay during our leisurely drive down the coast. After flipping through the AAA book, we decided to check out La Serena and we ended up staying there for 3 nights in the junior suite. The room was clean, quiet and roomy and had a microwave and refrigerator. With our 9 month baby in tow, we spent... More

We had stayed at La Serena the Thanksgiving before, Nov 2005,and it was clean and quiet. In July 2006, we mistakenly tried the Pacific Shores Inn, which is next door. Pacific Shores has great views, but ummm... Motel 6 is better. We called La Serena for a rescue and they provided us with a mini suite that was great!!! They... More

I thought this hotel was terribly overpriced for what you received. I normally agree with the majority of comments on Trip Advisor, but I feel compelled to let everyone know this is definitely not a great hotel, certainly not above average by any means. First, although fairly clean, the interior room furnishings are somewhat dated and worn. Our third-floor room... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2006

We stayed for two nights and found the room to be clean, though a little dark. The view was very nice and so was the front desk help. If you need a clean and quiet place to stay in Morro Bay, but you don't need a lot of frills, this is a great choice.
