Our family has come here each summer for years. We love all the art, the wine and cheese, the indoor hot tub, and the friendly staff. We need an ADA now, and room #111 was perfect! The Embarcadero is close by where there is a variety of restaurants and things to do, like kayaking in the bay.

I am especially fond of this hotel for many reasons. I enjoy the cozy, Home type of feel this hotel provides. What I think is really cool too is that it has an indoor hot tub. Yeah! Indoors and I'm pretty sure the pool is not cold throughout the year. I felt very comfortable when the rain fell, I was... More

Our room was on the second floor, with a gas fireplace and a small balcony. We enjoyed the wine and cheese in the afternoon. Breakfast included do-it-yourself waffles and (surprisingly) bakery-quality pastries. The décor was unusual, with an extremely eclectic assortment of art prints - we had fun trying to guess the artist before looking at the index. Two things... More

We just stayed last weekend for a night and was pleasantly surprised. Although the rooms are outdated (ie... 1980's wine colored in-room Jacuzzi) it was clean and a pleasant place to stay. Also, I thought the location was really good, about 4 blocks to the embarcadero and a few blocks to local bars and restaurants. I'd stay again. The cheese... More

Well located with good car parking . 20 minute walk to popular vibrant waterfront area near Morro Rock. Complimentary cheese & wine between 5-7pm. Wine nice with choice of white, red or rose. Cheese not good as no taste & plastic feel which could be improved at little extra cost. Staff friendly with good wifi and breakfast . Received a... More

While this hotel is not what I would call particularly polished or high end, we found it charming, comfortalbe, and benefiting from an excellent location. The complimentary wine and cheese was a welcome sight after a long day of driving. It is walking distance from the lovely downtown area of Morros Bay. Breakfast is adequate but not noteworthy. The old-world... More

My wife and I have been coming to Morro Bay every year from San Diego since 2004. And we have stayed at the Masterpiece every time, but one. Consistent throughout the years. Service always professional and courteous. Rooms always clean. Free wine, cheese and cracker happy hour since I can remember. Decent continental breakfast. Huge indoor hot tub and most... More

We had a room on the first floor but at the rear of the property. View was not exciting and would suggest you seek a room at the front of the hotel, although it will overlook the carpark. We enjoyed the very pleasant afternoon daily wine, cheese etc.

A small hotel with a very friendly approach. Every evening they served cheese and wine as a service to the guests. The hotel was situated close to the bay and it was easy to find restaurants in the neighborhood. The room was big and clean. The pool was small but great for relaxing.

The only good thing here is the hot tub. Nice on the outside but bed was so bad I ended up sleeping on the floor on an air mattress I had brought with me. No way would I let my son sleep on a trundle bed that practically had springs coming out- he shared the king bed with my husband.... More
