Stayed an evening here while meandering up the coast to Big Sur. Read some decent reviews, decided to give it a look see, and have to say I am more than charmed by this little gem. The proprietress has done an excellent job of combining luxe comfort in a beachy bungalow setting. This is one of the cleanest properties I've... More

Had passed this motel on the way to a reservation with points at a chain motel. When we discovered no reservation on file, I immediately called this motel and was given a great 2 queen bed room that was actually 2 rooms, each with a queen bed. Clean, comfortable beds, decorated in a retro style. It's a block from the... More

Stayed here one night. Excellent value, choice of a couple of rooms. Picked No.2, king size bed, small but functionable bathroom, small kitchenette. Very clean and 1 block to the restaurants and sea. Had breakfast at Lola and Frankies on Front Street, which was the best I had the whole holiday this time. As I live in the UK it... More

We had a great stay at the Pleasant Inn Motel. Impeccably clean, comfy king size bed too. Our room (No 2) had a small little kitchen and we could park the car just outside the kitchen door, so really easy to get bags in / out of the room. Easy walking distance to everything. I would definitely stay here next... More

Spent a quick over night here while travelling around California, Nevada and Arizona. Got in later and check in wasn't an issue. Nicely updated room, small bathroom but served its purpose. Super comfy bed, nice linens and impeccably cleaned. Only thing we could grumble about were the thin walls, we could hear our neighbours entire conversations. Nice little spot close... More

We stayed here for a night while driving down the Pacific Coast. The room was fine, although a bit on the small side, as was the bathroom. However the price was very reasonable so no real complaint there. It's well located for wandering down to the Harbour to find something to eat or to walk out to the rock and... More

Exceptionally clean motel, very friendly staff, including Sandy's dog. Enjoyed especially sitting on the porch or in the room with the door open, looking at the scenery, the bay, the dolphins and listening for the foghorn. The owners have done very nice things with the rooms, making the most of the space. Kitchens are a big plus. Bathrooms are very... More

Took my mother in law to Morro Bay for Oysters and we loved it. On the morning of her 84th Birthday they put "Happy 84th Birthday Ruth" and she cried. That made her day really special.

We got a very clean room with a comfortable king sized bed, a tv that worked, wifi that didn't, a shower the size of a phone booth, for those of you old enough to remember what they looked like,and a kitchenette. We got to listen to seals yelping, I didn't know they were nocturnal creatures, and a distant fog horn... More

Really cannot fault this little place, looks like a classic motel from the outside, but the rooms are just great inside, huge bed, great TV, small kitchen in ours if we needed it - we didn't because you are quite literally a stones throw from the sea and places to eat in the evening. Stayed for 2 nights to explore... More
