We stayed here for a quick overnight trip,and were so pleasantly surprised. Thought it would be a basic motel, but it far exceeded our expectations. The owner/manager was so kind and welcoming--great hospitality. The room was very, very clean and fresh. Cute beach themed artwork, curtains and matching bedspread, etc. The heater worked very well, had no old smell to... More

Very clean room with comfortable beds. Towels and amenities were good. Lobby is too small to offer much but the personnel were very accommodating and friendly. Great location, I walked to the Embarcadero and it is right at the entrance to the state park. 1.5 miles to rock and beach. This was a Saturday night so the rate was up... More

What a wonderful place to relax! We had such a enjoyable stay at the sandpiper! Strategically located. Walking distance to the Morro, restaurants and the beach. Even though we stayed one night only (we were coming south from Big Sur) we had a good time. Our room was very clean and private. Front desk lady -Priscilla- is very helpful and... More

Stayed overnight en route to San Francisco. Room was delightful! Clean and bright, spacious and comfortable. Had it's own refrigerator and microwave, plus coffee-making facilities. Bed was extremely comfortable. Only a few minutes walk to all the restaurants on the waterfront. We only stayed one night, but would come again, and can thoroughly recommend The Galley Restaurant. For a Motel,... More

My boyfriend and I decided on very short notice to go to the coast before I had to return to school. I searched hotels thru kayak and didn't really like the reviews in the price range I had in mind. So I googled hotels in Morro Bay. I saw the sandpiper and liked the pics and decided to take a... More

We stayed at the Sandpiper last year on a return trip from Seattle and loved it so much that we scheduled 3 nights this year and opted for a forth on a whim. Rooms are clean and well decorated with a spacious restroom area, large enough for my small griddle. The owner is a doll, gave us all sorts of... More

This little motel in Morro Bay does everything right. It offers a great view of the ocean and Morro Rock, perfect little outside tables and chairs for a snack or glass of wine. The room was immaculate with a lovely tile bathroom, perfectly comfortable bed, understated artistic touches, a desk, and a nice little table. All the amenities were provided... More

Very basic motel at a very reasonable price. Great place to stay if you're just looking for a clean room in which to sleep without a lot of extras. We spent 2 nights there recently and were very happy with our stay. The manager (Priscilla) gave us excellent advice on things to do in the area. We would definitely stay... More

Let me start by saying that if you want Holiday Inn and the treatment there, then don't come to the Sandpiper (Formerly the Rodeway Inn). It is a nice hotel, older but well maintained. The lady who greeted us I think is the owner and was a gem of a sweetheart. We got an upstairs room which was quite small,... More
