4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Clean motel, good for one or two night dtop off. Very old fashioned decor, and all electrics controlled by a switch at the front door (limited plugs for a group of 4). Owner was nice, and good location.

Owners have done a nice job with the remodel of a 1950's motel. More plugs in the room would be nice instead of the coddled mess of extension cords. Clean and quiet but a few more amenities would be nice such as soap in the shower. It is to be expected on a busy weekend motels raise their prices but... More

Very nice motel. Clean sheets and towels. Lovely team running the place. Morro Bay itself is a very relaxed town with some great cafes and restaurants - a skateboarding museum and aquarium. We had a lovely trip and would definitely come again.

Location is great, parking no problem and room dated but clean with fridge and coffee maker and microwave as well as free WiFi. Priced very reasonable we sure will be back.... More

We were very pleased to find this sweet and clean little motel in Morro Bay. Rooms were a nice size, attractively decorated, high ceilings, lovely baths. Location was city center, and just 2 short blocks to the harbor district and sights. Price was very reasonable, and manager was helpful and friendly. Very comfortable stay. Recommend calling the owner manager directly... More

Stayed here a few weeks ago and enjoyed our stay. Very clean old fashioned motel with everything you need. Very friendly, good location and great value. What a find to have the still working magic fingers antique machine on the bed. Recommended!

The Sundown Inn is a very well kept small motel in the downtown area of Morro Bay! It is easy to walk to coffee shops and quaint thrift shops from its location on Main Street. It's also easy to walk to the Marina just a few blocks down the street. You can do it....I did it 35 weeks pregnant! The... More

Family owned motel. Owner was friendly and accommodating. Room decor needs updating hopefully to a neutral tone. Loved the bathroom with the stylish tile and steamy glass doors as it was recently renovated. Great price and mattress.

We spent two pleasant nights here last week. Instead of the cookie cutter, expensive chain hotels, we are spending our nights in small business owned motels at responsible prices. We found a gem here with friendly, helpful owners, newly remodeled, clean rooms with tv, microwave, refrig, hair dryer, comfortable beds all for a more than responsible price. Can't ask for... More

Our room was quiet, comfortable, and clean. We needed a peaceful place for a good night's sleep and that is exactly what we got. We were able to sleep with the windows open to get a nice, cool breeze coming through our room. There isn't anything super fancy about this place, but it was a great spot for rest during... More
