Check in was brisk and the reception agent was friendly. I was put off, however, that he wanted full payment at check in --it is customary to settle up at the end of a stay, no? The room had an unpleasant odor and I found it necessary to keep the window open for my 3-night stay. Unfortunately, the location of... More

We loved our stay at the Masterpiece Hotel in Morro Bay. Just 2 blocks from the ocean, the hallways are lined with art, there is a complimentary cheese/wine tasting every night. The roman spa is huge (could probably fit 15-20 people). The fitness center had all the basics and my favorite type of elliptical (you can increase the incline) and... More

We have been going back to the Masterpiece Hotel every January for the past 5 or 6 years. Love the ambiance. The staff are very friendly and so willing to help with our needs. Our reservation is already booked for 2017.

Most of the hotels in the Morro Bay area are older. The Masterpiece Hotel is among that category, although it is well maintained. The breakfast is not a full breakfast, although it is a step up from a Continental Breakfast. Bagels, toast, instant oatmeal, cereal, hard boiled eggs, oranges, waffles that you can make to order, plus juice and coffee.... More

Clean, comfortable, with great staff and a beautiful Roman spa...we go as often as we can! It is European style with classic art on every wall and a variety of rooms to choose from. Conveniently close to the wharf and downtown.

For the price we paid at this hotel, we expected it to be much better than it was. We didn't get of to a good start when we were asked to pay extra during check-in, even though we had prepaid everything. The room was old and dated, no air condition and it was impossible to turn of the oven -... More

A friend booked me in for 2 nights as they did not have room for me at home. The rooms are very spacious, clean and ascetic to the eye. The only draw back was that there is no air conditioning. They had a very nice continental breakfast. The staff were super kind and helpful.
