Having a weekend between visiting San Fran and LA for work I decided to stop by in Morrow Bay while traveling between these two cities. The Sandpiper Inn is a very typical Motel with clean sheets and a horrid colour scheme. I don't understand why Motels always use such screaming colours and in such strange combination. Aside from that the... More

Our family really enjoyed sitting outside the suites in the sun with a nice view of Moro bay. The beds were really hard and uncomfortable. The decor was really dated and needs an update. The price was great though.

We stayed at the Sandpiper for 2 nights in May 2015 and wished it had been longer. The staff welcomed us and answered all our questions with a smile. The room was a good size, very clean with lots of fresh towels & toileteries. Air con worked well. We were surprised to be offered a complimentary breakfast of cereals &... More

We just spent over 4 months traveling California. The Sandpiper in Morro Bay was the all around best place we stayed! The people that run it "Ron and his son Kevin" were some of the very kindest people we encountered on this journey! They and their family keeps this place almost spotless! (Definitely the cleanest we saw in all the... More

I really like this place because it's different and has personality. The rooms are small but adequate for a couple. Beds may not be top of the line but comfortable. Rooms are very clean and staff friendly. The breakfast was only those big muffins from a warehouse type store cut in thirds. I look forward to staying here again.

Stayed at the Sandpiper 04/18/15 for one night. The hotel is old, but it is well maintained and clean. The only complaint was the bed was a little lumpy and needed to be replaced. The linens were clean and the bathroom offered full size towels for your shower, instead of the usual 3/4 size. We forgot about the lumpy bed... More

We had to wait over 30 minutes to get a seat but once seated good food and good service. Was it worth the wait.. Honestly no but daughter had a friend rave about it so we had to try out. If you can get seated in a better time it's worth going.

Great little budget hotel! We spent three nights here while exploring Montana de Oro and Morro Bay. The owners do a great job keeping the property up, the room was clean and well maintained, serviced every day, coffee and muffins in the morning! Definitely better than we expected for the rate we paid. This is one of the best maintained... More

As usual, upon arrival, I was greeted with kind smiles (by the manager and his son) and nice greetings. The continental breakfast is always good. The location of the Sandpiper Inn makes for easy access to the embarcadero (which is about three blocks away), many restaurants, and good places to shop. The prices are always good and the hotel is... More
