The hotel itself is quite nice - the inside is very open and includes an atrium from the ground to the roof above the third floor. There is a large indoor jacuzzi that was also very nice with big...

We have stayed in quite a few hotels in Morro Bay and usually the rooms ends up being on the small size and there are very few amenities. The rooms here were good size, they have a jacuzzi on the first floor for the guests, they... More

Were looking for interesting/quirky beach town. Morro Bay attracted us due the giant rock. We found interesting venues to visit in the environ, including the Montana de Oro, the... More

Love this town and its location. Sea food dinners are wonderful and priced right. People friendly and great to walk to shops and out to lunch and or dinner. Fresh air and easy to get around. A great stop over between San Diego and San Francisco.
