We were travelling down Highway 1 to LA for a late night flight back to Australia the next day. We were at Hearst Castle and picked up some sort of Hotel Guide. We were intending to stay at San Simeon and found it was just a motel stop on either side of the highway. I had read about Morro Bay... More

Old and dated and very loud. It was clean, and close to the town but the hotel shows a lot of use. Breakfast was good. I just felt like the staff on the night shift was young and not attentive to the amount of noise being generated by the guest and did nothing to stop it. It appeared that they... More

Everything about my stay here is positive. My room was neat and clean, everything modern and nice. My room had an ocean view, third floor...with an amazing view of Morro Rock. There's a huge indoor hot tub and lots of parking. If you enjoy the outdoors, check out the Montana de Oro State Park a few miles down the coast.... More

Rooms are roomy and clean. Staff nice and attentive. Very nice hot tub area. Wine and cheese in the evening and waffle machine breakfast in the morning. The beds were hard for both my daughter and me, and the pillows (all 8 of them!!) were most uncomfortable. For $110 a night, it's o.k.

Remember when life was slower and everyone was friendly? This is what I experienced this past weekend. The staff at the Inn were so nice and the pace of the location was just what anyone would enjoy coming from a hectic place. The Inn is arranged so that you have a city view or ocean view. We had the ocean... More

My wife and I stay at this hotel 2-3 times a year. It's an older hotel but so are all the other hotels in Morro Bay. We have found it to be clean and the staff very friendly. My only complaint is that they don't serve breakfast until 7:30, 6:30 would be much better for those who want to get... More

very clean - friendly staff - close to EVERYTHING - room was very comfortable and breakfast was ok -needed more fruit choices but great grab and go - wine/cheese evenings is a nice thought. Great local farmers markets, shopping and a ton of activities within walking distance.

It has been several years since I've stayed here and was very surprised that the hotel has not had any updating since that time. While the location and pricing was great, the hotel's shower, stuffy room dated décor was not. Staff was not very friendly

1) Room got very warm and there was no air conditioning. 2) Water splashed out of shower stall. 3) Breakfast pastries were not fresh. 4) Some of the front-desk staff was not friendly. 5) Charged extra to extend check out time by 1.5hrs.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. Management has been notified of your check-out experience and will review it with staff. We do not have air conditioning, being located at the beach it would hardly ever be used. We receive our pastries daily so are a bit confused as to why they were not up to... More

We stayed at the hotel for 8 night in early February. We originally booked for 1 night and found the hotel to be very comfortable and they offered a reduced rate if we extended our stay. The hotel was very fairly priced and very clean and well maintained and offered off-street parking and an elevator for the upper floor rooms.... More
