This motel is cute and clean but the rooms are very small. My husband and I booked the room at the last minute for Father's Day weekend. The motel manager was very nice and accommodating. According to the manager, the rooms were designed for a queen bed but more people wanted king beds so they made the switch but the... More

We opted for an older-style motel and were not disappointed by the updates they had done to it. The non-smoking, no pet room was very clean and nicely done. The bathroom was a bit tight and we were glad we were small people. Still, it worked. Being Morro Bay only requires opening the windows to get the "AC" to blow... More

We are so glad that you appreciate the updates to the Pleasant Inn. We all worked very hard to modernize our rooms while maintaining the charm of yesteryear. And, yes, we love pets and have many rooms available to travelers bringing their furry friends. Although we have several rooms that are completely off limits to pets, as well. Incidentally, the...

The Pleasant Inn was more than pleasant, it was amazing. I booked room 5 which is a single full-sized bed ideal for someone on a solo trip: small, cute, and cozy. The room had everything I needed: shower, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, wall rack with hangers, dresser, and bath amenities. I arrived after a 300 mile motorcycle ride... More

I have stayed at a majority of the motels in Morro Bay for the past 30 years. The Pleasant Inn is by far the best. When my wife and I checked out we booked the Pleasant Inn for our next trip to Morro Bay. The staff, especially Jim, were friendly and fun and very professional. Love the place and God... More

Great place to stop for a night whilst on the road. We had driven down from San Francisco along the Big Sur and this was a welcome place to stop. Nicely located in Morro Bay with some good bars for beers and food within a few minutes walk. Staff were friendly and i would happily stop by again.

Pleasant Inn was easy to find with parking right outside. We were father and daughter travelling together and the room had a large double plus 2 singles which was perfect. It was spotlessly clean aswell. Would definitely recommend.
