Morro Bay was a stopover on the way from SF to LA, and we booked this hotel online. Very well situated, only about 17 miles from US 101, 5 minutes walk from the harbour and beach. Spacious, clean and comfortable room, friendly staff and a nice gesture of complimentary wine and cheese for guests at 5 - 7pm when they... More

It's not a good place to relax due the noisy traffic plus the service management is incompetent and rude the wireless was not working.

We had stayed at this hotel under previous owners and found it very nice. We made reservations for two rooms, with two adults and one child on a roll-away bed in each room. When we arrived, the hotel did not have the two roll-aways and did not seem adept at solving the problem. The prices were high, almost $200 a... More

My wife and I booked this hotel through Hotwire. We really didn't expect much other than a place to rest from the days activites. That being said, our expectations were exceeded. Masterpiece Hotel is a very charming and quiant hotel. The artwork in our rooms and around the hotel was done very well. The jacuzzi looks more like a roman... More

We got this one through Expedia and it was a good experience. One of three owned by the same owner, the staff was attentive and helpful. The wine at the wine and cheese was very nice but made us laugh because it wasn't local but from Sonoma. The bed was not bad but not remarkable. All in all, everything was... More

Travelling from San Diego to San Francisco up the Pacific Coast Highway, Morro Bay is an ideal stop over. It happened to be on the 4th of July so we had the bonus of a nice day of entertainment and fireworks in the Bay. When checking out a hotel to stay in needed to find one that could accommodate a...

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 Bedding might need some work and rooms were little outdated.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
