We love quaint non-chain hotels for a change up...this met our expectations. The guest services was friendly, accommodating. We arrived just in time for the complimentary wine/cheese offering. The rooms and hallways boasted art works with a pamphlet to identify the artist. (I like that sort of thing, so I wished it would also state where the original now hung).... More

We booked this hotel thru Groupon for 1 nice night stay with my wife. Clean and classy by the Bay. Awesome breakfast and nice staff. loved the Jacuzzi . Bedding might need some work and rooms were little outdated. In overall was a good bargain for the value and money.

Loved the quirky feeling of the hotel and the great background story about the owner and how he came to own this property. Fun, interesting artwork everywhere and great roman bath downstairs. Not in the best location, but convenient if you have a car. Friendly staff, okay breakfast, nice "happy hour" treats. Really came to like Morro Bay and close... More

First of all we LOVED the view from our room. You could see Morro Rock and the ocean and hear the seals at night. We arrived on the last day of a CRAZY heatwave and the hotel does NOT have AC. Even with the windows and door to the room open it was stifling inside. It cooled down the following... More

We spent 2 nights at this hotel on our trip down the Pacific Coastal Highway. At first we were unimpressed with Morro Bay but then we discovered the Embarcedero with all it's bars and restaurants. And we loved watching the sea otters on the walk out to Morro Rock. And we had a great night out, especially stopping off at... More

What a delightful, charming hotel. I can't wait to return. I just wish this group had a chain up and down California. Kind and helpful staff. Sweet amenities such as as the breakfast and wine and cheese in afternoon. The lovely indoor swimming pool and gym. Clean, clean clean. Thanks

Our room was nice but a little outdated. No flat screen TV and the wifi never worked even after the front desk set it 3 times.
