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

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
