After a full day at the beach it is great to be staying at a place that is clean, smells clean ( not cover up smell clean either!), well kept with the attention to detail that gives our room " charm". More important however is that the plumbing works well. You want a good hot shower, you got it! Our... More

We stayed for 1 night and it was a step back in time. Old but fresh decor. The room was really clean. Small but really fun to stay there. It's ideally placed just a very short walk to the seafront and fantastic restaurants for breakfast and dinner.we would definitely stay again.Give this hotel a you will love it.

It was probably built in the late 40's or 50's. A lot of motels like this are long gone. It is pretty well taken care of. Nice on the inside... decorated nicely. Quiet. It is mostly residential with low traffic volume. Still has key doors.... but that's ok. No extra parking slots. The only real drawback is no breakfast for... More

As noted by previous contributors this is an old fashioned motel with limited amenities but it is very clean and comfortable with a friendly, helpful lady in charge. Additionally it is situated handily to explore the resort and walk down to the bars and restaurants on the beach. Our bed had a 'magic fingers vibrating bed (25cents) which was slightly... More

Spent one night here on our way from Monterey to LA. Had read the reviews on TA so knew what to expect from the motel room, but even so, after a recent diet of newer Hiltons, Marriotts etc it does come as a surprise to seemingly step back in time to the 70's (or is it the 60's?). Having the... More

Stayed here for couple nights. Very clean rooms and with friendly, helpful staff. The location is not ideal, but very close to the waterfront and the ocean. Very good value for your money. I would recommend it to travelers.

While driving up the coastal highway I stopped by in Morro Bay and decided to stay overnight as it was getting dark and unsafe to drive with all that rain that's been coming down for the past two days. Had some grilled tilapia tacos at Giovanni's place by the docks, then I drove around a few blocks when stumbled upon... More

Sundown Inn is an older property that has been remodeled and kept up! Located about 2 blocks from the Waterfront with its Morro Rock views, restaurants and a few galleries and shops. The Inn contacted me by phone and email to clarify my reservation which was very thoughtful! Also on Checkout day we were allowed to leave our car a... More

We to Morro Bay off season thinking it would be no problem to find a room. How wrong we were! We lucked out finding a room here. We will never stay anywhere else in Morro Bay. Owners are very accommodating and we have never stayed in a cleaner room! Can't wait for our next visit!

The office staff were very pleasant and friendly. This is an older hotel but the rooms were very clean, well cared for and recently remodeled. Comfortable beds! Appreciated the double bed plus twin bed option for family of three. Walkable area that seemed safe and friendly.
