The Pleasant inn motel is a great little spot if you're looking for a boutique hotel in the seaside town of Morro Bay. It's located right in the heart of Morro Bay near all of the great restaurants and shops located on the Embarcadero. it's about a 10 minute walk to the waterfront where you can see all of the...

I originally chose this motel for its affordability and convenient location. Being a solo traveler I chose their cosy, comfortable, Room 5. The staff is friendly and helpful and the site is only a short walk to the Embarcadero. My go-to place in Morro Bay.

WOW what a great find. I surprised my girlfriend by planning a trip to Morro Bay, and the Pleasant Inn was a great little cozy place. This hotel was only one block from the bay and restaurants which made it very easy. We will definitely be back again!

Just happened upon this motel over the weekend! It was a very clean, quiet, & quaint little place. Great location-right on the bay and walking distance to all waterfront shopping and restaurants! A wonderful stay! Look forward to coming back soon for a longer stay! Staff was very warm & welcoming! Had a great stay!

I've driven the California coast from San Francisco to Los Angeles several times, and I always seem to overnight in Morro Bay, a small and charming coastal town dominated by an enormous rock -- practically a small mountain. The Pleasant Inn is one of several small, traditional motels in town and is an excellent choice. It's easy to find and... More

This hotel is good, close to downtown, clean and overall, pleasant. Reception and check in was good, lovely lady who was very helpful. My only comment would be a review of the kitchen equipment as there are only one of things, a bit difficult when there are two of you. Overall a good place to stop.

Motel is close to downtown and wharf as well as restaurants. Rooms are very small but some have kitchens. None of the rooms have telephones which is an issue if there is an emergency and your cell phone isn't working. Parking lot is on a hill and very small.
