Check-in was very smooth. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable and exceeded expectations. Property is about four blocks up from the water but our unit had a great view of the Morro Bay "rock". Internet WIFI was both free and fast. Room had flat screen HDTV. Very adequate continental breakfast availlable. Also walking distance... More

Room was not too bad. The manager was very friendly. The bathroom had good water pressure. Room was clean but a little dated. Good for one night! Don't count on their breakfast,it was not good. Coffee barely drinkable and stale plastic wrapped muffins.

Small motel on the main street, very convenient location for Embarcadero and Morro Rock, the latter of which is in clear view of the hotel. Breakfast is small but adequate choice, again it is complimentary so i do not know why people complain. The rooms are bright and very clean. I would stay here again if I was to re-visit... More

Last minute decision to stay night. Most places already booked for night. Needed 1 room 2 beds. Found Econo Lodge vacancy for $168 a night which I feel is very high for what you get. Newly renovated room consistent of crown molding & paint. Furniture looks to be 2nd hand store. Only thing I can say is looks to be... More

Really just the best service I've had in a long time, the manager on duty was always helpful when I needed to get a taxi or I needed to get a key after I had lost mine. I would recommend this place to anyone! Thank you again!

I had the pleasure of a long-term stay at one of the most friendly places ever (and at a very good price). The family-owned hotel had all rooms completely remodeled during the time I was there. Even during the remodel, my stay was tranquil and I was not inconvenienced. Any request I made was attended to immediately. The owners went... More

This little motel barely passes. Two queen beds, but those old nasty bedspreads. Lots of good pillows, even extras in the room. Toilet was plugged when we got there. Management brought a new plunger. Conveniently located next door to the Hungry Fisherman Restaurant. Said free WiFi, but signal was too low to actually download anything. It's right on Main Street,... More

About like Motel 6, I would stay here if it was less on the price or if the others are booked. It's not to bad, no pool but right downtown and walking distance to the embarcadero. Weekends are good if you like the farmers market.

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our way up the coast. We arrived in Morro Bay around 7pm and immediately headed to the rock to take pictures. A friend mentioned to take pictures when you arrive because the fog would be too thick in the morning. The room was perfect for an overnight stay. Bed was... More
