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

I booked this hotel through hotels.com, for whom I also have the need to write a review. My husband and I were talking my daughter to tour colleges. I was first trying to find a hotel for a Cal Poly tour. I found a rate of $240 to be acceptable for this area and chose the "Masterpiece" . I specified... More

Spacious rooms! Incredibly clean. Loved the nightly wine and cheese. Courteous friendly staff. Overall an amazing trip. When our little girl left some toys behind they called right away and mailed them to us. Amazing customer service!

Stayed here overnight and found it to be clean, nicely decorated and a very friendly & helpful Front Desk Person. No elevator to second floor so be sure to request 1st floor accommodations if you have a large heavy bag. Wine & cheese in lobby with coffee & rolls in a.m. A most pleasant find!
