First, the value for the price was excellent. Was $89 and we'd even forgotten to give our AAA number for a discount. This is an older property but clean, well kept up and refurbished. Free wifi. No air conditioning or fans. Morro Bay is very moderate even in August and we were comfortable. As with many hotels I stay, the... More

Spent the night in Beautiful Morro Bay on the way up the coast. Our stay at the Sundown Inn was pleasant. The room was neat and clean with an updated bathroom The staff was friendly. The motel is conveniently located for easy walking to shops and restaurants.

After a long drive from San Francisco to Morro Bay down Hwy #1 coast road - Sundown Inn was a breath of fresh air and a welcome. I had done the research and saw what prices were around the area. Sundown had the best price but then there is more... The lady at the front desk was very helpful and... More

The Sundowner Inn in Morro Bay is very easy on the wallet. The rooms are clean, bathrooms updated, good king bed and nice people that run the motel. It's always a crapshoot with loud talkers and thin walls but after 10:00pm everyone went to bed and it was nice and quiet with no sounds but a distant fog horn.

Located a few blocks from Embarcadero this motel is neat and clean. We had no problem with our reservations and the prices were very reasonable for a beach town. Our room was small but nice. Equipped with a queen bed, frig, microwave, flat screen TV, and hair dryer. The bathroom had been recently renovated and was quite attractive. The hosts... More

Great location, minutes walk to morro bay marina. The room is very clean and comfortable. Though the design is simple but we feel so cozy. Really value for money! Anne was very helpful and friendly. She provided us information on where to go and often checked with us if everything was well. We will definitely go back to sundown if... More

great place to stay, and the very reaosnable price. My wife and I stayed at about 12 different motel/hotels on a road trip and this was one of the best places we stayed- location-wise and room quality. The beds were very nice and the bathrooms looked to be remodeled recently. Will be back for sure. Also- the staff is extremely... More

Trust the reviews of this hidden gem in Morro Bay! The Sundown Inn is a totally renovated motel. We only stayed one night because we were on our way to San Francisco via Monterey. Our queen room, #7 had a view of Morro Rock! Lovely place!

We travel to morro bay and stayed there for one night before the national day. The motel is so much better than we expected. It's very close to the beach, very quiet, very clean and the owner is super nice! Nice decorations, comfortable bed and clean bath room, you will definitely like it. 5 star no doubt!

From the minute we registered, we knew we were in for a special experience at the Sundown Inn in Morro Bay. The owners clearly take delight in hosting their guests and couldn't do enough to insure our comfort. Each guestroom is carefully decorated and the bedding is especially ultra comfortable. Hands down, this is the cleanest motel we have ever... More
