5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This motel is on a par with a 4 star hotel in my opinion. The rooms were lovely; equipped with extremely large comfortable beds, a kitchen and a clean bathroom. We stayed in room 1 which overlooked the ocean- friends stayed in other rooms which were equally lovely. If you come to Morro bay you have to stay in the... More

The room we stayed in number 1 wasn't huge but it was beautifully set up, the bed was first class and supremely comfortable. The room had a great kitchen, a brilliant hairdryer and was all in all of a very high standard.

Morro Bay and Pleasant Inn is a nice stop along highway 1. It is a small and clean motel in the center of Morro Bay. It is easy to walk down to the sea and the restaurants and small shops. The motel has a nice veranda. Parking is available right outside the rooms. The walls are not very thick so... More

Husband and I stayed for one night on drive up the coast. I liked it but husband didn't. We were upgraded to room with kitchen. We didn't need a kitchen. Felt bad if someone wanted a kitchen. Shower was so small it was hard to wash our feet or shave legs and we are thin people. Bathroom faucet got wet... More

Overall fine for overnight stay...for five...not easy to find when traveling. King bed with connecting room which had double and twin beds...worked well for us. Excellent service! Easy to find. Clean. Good wifi. Only negative was clean but tiny bathroom ....oh yeah and no AC in this unit. Worked great for overnight between San Francisco and LA.

I hate writing this review because I want this place to remain my secret but it's just so cute that I have to. The motel doesn't look very inviting when you first see it, parking spaces right in the front and all but that's the only thing I didn't like about it. The rooms are adorable, spacious enough to move... More

This place is exactly as described. The rooms are small ish but the price definitely reflects any shortcomings. The rooms was clean, bed was comfortable and the staff were very helpful. Everything I need in a nights stay. I would stay here again if I went back to morro bay.

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

Hi Janet, We are flattered that you chose to stay with us for your Fathers Day getaway. All of our rooms are on the cozier side and that's one of the things that other guests find charming about the Pleasant Inn. In fact, your room was 252 square feet with a King Bed and Kitchenette. However, we're sorry that 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
