It's a lovely budget motel to spend a night or two in this beautiful city. The stuff is very friendly and it was the first and only motel during our trip where they provide you with a free small breakfast (tea, coffee, orange juice, muffins)! It's true that the isolation is not ideal, so you'll probably hear some cars passing... More

My husband and I enjoyed our visit to the Sandpiper Inn. Our hosts was such a wonderful family, they offered great service as well. We had a nice view from our room and it was very clean and extra comfortable. Nice value. Look forward to our next visit!

We stayed at the Sandpiper Inn for a quick weekend getaway to Paso Robles wine country. It's about 25 miles from the vineyards. Morro Bay is such a cute little town, very quiet, yet tourist friendly. We've been there a couple of times and have enjoyed it thoroughly. The Sandpiper Inn is clean, very affordable, and a short walking distance... More

Very good value but the thin walls kept us up throughout the night because we could hear the neighbor coughing repeatedly. Also, I sleep with ear plugs and it sounded as if they were in our room. This is the only reason I wouldn't stay here again.

We stopped at the Sandpiper Inn on our way through Morro Bay. It's a basic motel but this was all we really needed for one night - a place to sleep and shower. Rooms were a decent size and clean and tidy with things like fridge, microwave and coffee-making facilities if you use those kinds of things (we didn't). Free... More

Stayed here one night with my wife and son, on our way from L.A. to SFO. The manager was very nice, and check in was very fast. The room might be a bit old, but it was clean and comfortable. The location is great, just a few blocks from restaurants and attractions. It is very quiet at night, and we... More

2 adults with 2 king rooms were very pleased. A coffee maker, fridge and microwave are great conveniences. The rooms are very clean and maid service is thorough. The beds and pillows are not the most comfortable but I slept very well thank you after a day of seeing the sights. Parking is easy and free right in from t... More

Hello There, I hope you are doing well. I am sorry you felt the way that you did. I must say that you do not have a right to say that we don't care for our customers or that we are after "bucks". We offer much more than the previous owner did. And I am sure that if you had... More
