If you went by star ratings this might be a two-star kind of place: a motel that is not on the beach and does not serve breakfast. But the rooms are immaculately clean and more attractively decorated than what you might get in a much fancier establishment, and the rates are very reasonable. The only problem that we had was...

This is a wonderful, clean, attractive family owned motel only a block from the bay. It is so affordable and you would expect to pay considerably more. It has comfortable beds, refrigerator (brand new) and microwave. The owners are so nice and make you feel like they really appreciate you being there. I would not stay any where else in... More

Needed a quick overnight stop on my way through. Sundown Inn met my needs entirely. Well located – just a walking distance from the bay, all the dining and shopping. So you can walk or drive there if you like (I had no problems finding parking on Embarcadero). The room was pretty big and clean, the staff were friendly and... More

We are spending 3 nights at Morro Bay and are so glad we found the Sundown Inn. The rooms are quaint, somewhat old fashioned but certainly "homey". They are well equipped, very clean and the place itself is right in the middle of things in Morro Bay. Walking to Morro Rock and passing all that this beautiful town of Morro... More

After looking at many places from SLO to here we chose Sundown Inn. It is very convenient to the "tourist area"/bay. Our room was cute and was quaintly decorated. The main reason we chose this place was for the queen bed and twin bed in the room. We have never had this option when traveling with our son. Ann (the... More

I'm amazed people give this place less than average scores based on our experience. Perhaps they don't travel enough? Given the price this place offers basic comfort, cleanliness and feels safe, despite being motel style. It's very close to eateries and shops, easy walking distance. There is a fridge and microwave in the room. You also have a coffee maker.... More

The staff were very friendly from check in to check out. They informed us of restaurants open on Christmas Eve and were very approachable. The rooms were clean and well looked after. I highly recommend this hotel.

On our road trip through California we had a lovely overnight stay in this quiet, family-owned hotel. The rooms are clean and well-maintained. Ample space for parking. Location is close to the marina. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Morro Bay.

As many people have said already, the lady who owns/runs this place is a real gem. It was nice of her to show us the room, how the heater worked etc. Very very friendly. Location is great - so close to some resturaunts and not far from morro rock. A very quiet nights sleep was had and bed was comfy... More

Morro Bay has a lot of choices for lodging but when you are looking for an affordable getaway along the Central Coast- Sundown Inn is a winner! 2 blocks from the waterfront- to restaurants, shops, walking, and that view of the rock! You can park right in front of your room- no stairs-modern bathrooms-mini refrig, and a coffee maker! Great... More
