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

We were traveling to San Francisco and stayed a couple of nights. I called the motel (and it is a motel), for the rates and was only able to secure a handicapped room. This was ok - it just meant a large bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. There was a microwave and frig, but... More

We look for a place to stay for one night on our trip on highway 1. The first impression was that the motel is dated but once checked in by a very friendly owner and got into the room we were very glad with our decision. The room was very clean, the bed was very comfort and the price is... More

The owners put their money where your comfort is: excellent beds, thick towels, and a *very* affordable price. You want a fancy lobby, maybe a fireplace in your room? You can have that around the block--for roughly four times the price--and the bedding will be inferior. I know. I've been there. The property is celebrating its 31st anniversary. The owner,... More

We went here as an in between stop on highway 1. The room is nice, very clean and the bathrooms are nice as well. The hostess is very friendly. Breakfast is not included, but she offered complementary muffins instead. We agreed on picking up the muffins at our departure time, but at the desired time she brought them to us... More

My wife, sister, and brother-in-law were in awe of this place. Very clean and cozy. My sister loved the massage bed. The owners were very kind. The price was great. Will definitely be a repeat in our travels.
