This is a wonderful experience. Priscilla, who is the manager, makes you feel right at home from the very first moment of your arrival. I came up to Morro Bay with my motorcycle chapter for the weekend and couldn't have found a better place to stay.

The owner is a really cute and funny Asian lady. Despite our late arrival, she was super helpful, have us lots of info and lots of vouchers for discounts at the local eateries as well as some freebies. The cleaning staff we encountered were also very friendly. To be very honest, I wouldn't go out of my way to stay... More

We recently overnighted in Morro Bay and stayed at the Sandpiper Inn. It was a pleasant surprise to have such a convenient and comfortable place to stay at such a reasonable price. We enjoyed visiting with Priscilla, the manager, who is knowledgeable about all that's great in Morro Bay. We will stay here in the future.

Booked in here last minute and was much nicer than I thought it would be. Quite basic as you would expect from a motel but free parking and WiFi, very clean and comfortable rooms which are well looked after and in an excellent location. A bit disappointed we were only there one night as a road trip stop over :-(

The service was great! The pros are the service and the location. The manager was very helpful. We asked for a quiet room on the upper level. So for 10 more dollars we got room 22 with a partial view of the bay. Since we were early, room wasn't ready yet so the manager asked the cleaning service to do... More

Hello! Thank you so much for your feedback. I too remembered the guest you are referring to. He was not checking in but simply picking up his key which was left outside since it is passed office hours. Unfortunately, he did the talking first before looking because he just came from a bar. So sorry for the inconvenience. We hope... More

Very, very clean accommodations in a nice, quiet area. Our dog, Emma, loves to stay here and loves the king-size bed especially. Easy walk to downtown and the Embarcadero and many restaurants & coffee shops. We enjoy having our coffee, orange juice and danish in the mornings as well. Already looking forward to our next visit here in December!

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
