Old two story unit with clean rooms. The shampoo was nice. The bed was comfortable. The location was very convenient. Unfortunately you could here every thing from the room above, both sides and out front. And the price seemed too high for the accommodations. I will not return.

Hello there, I hope you are enjoying your day. Thank you for the review. I am sorry that the neighbors were rowdy and were noisy. There are things that the hotel cannot control sometimes. I would have gladly asked them to lower their voices if I would have heard from you. I hope that wont be an issue next time.... More

This is one of many motels along the Main Street "strip" in Morro Bay. I'm glad I had TripAdvisor to help me pick. The room was clean and comfortable, with lots of nice little touches. The price search (from TripAdvisor) surprised me: several sites quoted prices around $70 for a single -- much higher than TripAdvisor showed. But Booking.com had... More

I originally planned on stopping here for A night on my way back to SoCal.. I stop in Morro Bay everytime I head up to & back from up north for easy-off/easy-on HI!WAY 1 gas. I just have never stayed here. After reading a few tripadvisor reviews I decided the price was reasonable and it was well worth a try.... More

In the San Luis Obispo area for a research trip and chose Morro Bay and the Morro Bay Sandpiper Inn as my base camp. Couldn't have been more pleased after a 3 night stay, especially when you factor in the very reasonable room rate. The ground floor queen room, while small was adequate space, sparkling clean with a comfortable bed... More

My husband and I needed a dog-friendly place to stay on our way to Northern California. It was a last-minute trip and we didn't have too many options, as most places were already fully booked. Luckily, the Sandpiper Inn still had availability, so we booked a room. The accommodation was basic, but it served its purpose. Pros: Very clean rooms.... More

We enjoyed just about everything at the Sandpiper. Mehir, who checked us in, was very charming and helpful. The rooms had all the amenities we appreciate; frig, microwave, coffee maker --and the rooms were clean and pleasant. I only wish we could have had some fruit at breakfast, and miss the little packaged Damishes I had there last time! All... More

The Sandpiper Inn was exceptional clean and comfortable. It also had a nice size refrigerator and micro wave. The grounds are beautiful and kept, and to top it off it is reasonable priced...it is small and cozy. The owners and family are very nice. O and did I mention Breakfast....

We had reservations this weekend (2-1,2-13) at a different motel and when we got there we didn't like the looks. Drove around and saw the Sandpiper.....looked nice and close to the bay, so, I went in to check the rates. I was greeted by very friendly people, we talked awhile, I told him by budget and he made it happen.... More

The Sandpiper Inn was my best find on a recent trip up and down California's central coast. The motel is located on a quiet section of Main Street in Morro Bay, but still within walking distance of the harbor and restaurants and shops in downtown. The room was clean, tastefully appointed, and I had a great view of Morro Rock... More

Morro Bay Sandpiper Inn was a very clean and comfortable Inn with a great view of Morro Rock. The owners were very pleasant. Had a great time with my two kids over MLK weekend. My kids and I can't wait to stay again when visiting Morro Bay/Los Osos/SLO.
