Lovely grounds - We had a good stay here although the decor is quite dated; tv not wide screen. View better from second floor- get a glimpse of the Bay- but no seating at all??? Having said that the location was fantastic, did have a view across to Morro Rock - what doesn't here? The staff were extremely friendly however-... More

We were lucky enough (or booked early enough) to have a very nice room with a peek of the ocean. Our room was very comfortable and clean and the Sandpiper Inn is within walking distance to everything. A great place to say if you are looking for a room close to the Embarcadero and activities that doesn't cost an arm... More

We had a lovely stay here. The decor is quite dated and the tv is one of those big sets that's deeper than it is wide. Having said that the location was fantastic, with a great view across to morro rock. The staff were extremely friendly and always smiling. The breakfast was simple but nice, with fresh coffee and muffins... More

We took a family trip to Morro Bay and this was the most reasonably priced motel with good reviews that we could find. It was clean and centrally located. The man who worked there was super nice and helpful. We would definitely stay again.

Decent value for room, but I might have skipped this one knowing that the manger seems to keep a watchful eye on the small breakfast offered. Breakfast was a blueberry and chocolate muffin cut in to quarters, and cold cereal. There was orange juice and coffee but very small styrofoam cups. The breakfast was in the very small lobby that...

We really enjoyed staying here. The decor was old-school, but the room was super-clean, and everything worked and was extremely functional. We enjoyed the atmosphere and management. Overall, a great experience!

This was my first time staying at the Sandpiper Inn. I needed a room for one night and the price was very reasonable. I'm always a little tentative when staying at a place for the first time, but this place is great. The owner was so cordial and helpful. The place is old, but very well kept and my room... More

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.
