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

We needed to find a place to stay for one night on our way from San Francisco to San Diego and we choose to do that in Morro Bay. Pleasant Inn is a great place to stay! It is located close to the water (walking distance) and has parking space right in front of the motel. The room is small... 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.

This is a reeeeeally, reeeeeally cute motel - reminds me of the places we stayed in while on childhood family road trips back in the 70's -BUT with a distinctly modern & stylish twist! Our motel room was "cozy, clean & comfy" - the bed was nice & decor is beautiful-- be warned the bathroom is small & narrow without... More

We travel to Morro Bay at least twice a year, and have often walked by the Pleasant Inn, remarking on how cute it looks. This trip, we decided to bring our dog, and finally gave the dog-friendly Pleasant Inn a try. We could not have been happier with our choice!

The Pleasant Inn is perfectly located within short walking distance to both the Embarcadero and Old Town Morro Bay. We appreciated the pet friendly accommodations. The king sized bed was very comfortable, and we liked having a kitchenette. Management is very friendly and helpful with dining suggestions. We would definitely return.
