We stayed there for one night and I just fell in love with the room! It was gorgeous! Very charmful and absolutely clean! I wished we would have had more of those rooms. Parking lots for every vehicle in front of the rooms. WiFi also included for free. The bed was a bit too soft but I guess that's normal... More

This is our second stay. A small but very clean and well tended Inn. Internet worked well this time, but still struggles at times. The Inn is situated on Main St, with many quaint stores nearby, also a small Movie theater. Excellent area for an evening walk. The Embarcadero business area is a short two blocks away - easy access... More

We checked in just before sunset. The Inn is just two blocks from the waterfront facing Moro Rock. We could hear the seals barking in the distance. Check-in was quick and efficient. The room was clean and well made. One bed had a magic fingers attachment. We walked down to the waterfront to view Moro Rock and photograph the setting... More

Stayed here with my family for 2 nights to visit Hearst Castle. It's within walking distance to the wharf in Morro Bay and a nice, short drive to Hearst Castle. It's run by a nice couple that are friendly and helpful, it's clear this place is their baby. The rooms are clean, with a microwave, "dorm" type refrigerator and microwave.... More

Nice little inn, very friendly staff, in "downtown" Morro Bay, which is to say, next to the couple of restaurants and pub in the small town. I would definitely stay there again. Ended up staying at the hotel as I was traveling through, down Hwy 1 on a solo motorcycle ride.

Found this motel through booking.com. I mentioned on our reservation we were there to celebrate our 47th Anniversary. When we checked in, the owner had a memorable gift for us! To be honest, this room reminded of a room we had on a trip to Michigan back in 1968 because it had "Magic Fingers" (still only .25 cents for 15... More

Clean and fresh place with easy access to places to eat. Morro Bay ended up being a great place to see on our journey up. The room was small and the beds not very comfortable, but for one night it works. The lady taking care of the place was helpful and cheerful.

At first glance this motel may not seem like much, but first impressions can be deceiving. The outside looks like any of the 100s of roadside motels that line California's towns and roads and the 'reception' area looks more like somebody's office than a place to welcome guests. But after an awkward and very manual check-in we were pleasantly surprised... More

My mom (56) and I (29, female) stayed here one night during a road-trip up Highway 1, and we booked it based on these reviews. The property is in an extremely safe area, and most of the motel guests (families, older couples) had their windows open when we arrived in the late evening to check in. Tons of shopping and...

The prior reviews are spot on. This hotel does deserve a 5 Star Rating. It is older and you will be very surprised when you enter your room. Immaculate and very clean and very nicely remodeled. We felt very comfortable there and we will return on our next visit to Morro Bay. The owner and reception person Ann was very... More
