Could of used a hook in bathroom to hang a towel or robe on. I would return I would recommend they change the... More

Last minute visit to Morro Bay. Usually stay at the Ascot or La Serena but the were full. Made reservations at Pacific Shores Inn and told them we wouldn't be there until about 9pm. Gave them my cc and was told there were no refunds which I understand due to the late notice. Not uncommon. Upon entering room noticed huge... More

We had been in America since 21 May, and were looking forward to a few days relaxing on the coast. We came across Morro Bay and Pacific Shores Inn. As we arrived mid week, the charge for the room (No 110) was for 2 nights $124 inc tax and a continental breakfast. We wanted to stay longer but the charge... More

With a great view of Morro Rock, this Inn offers good location, spacious room with a microwave and a fridge. Our room was on the 3rd floor (no elevator) but an excellent view of the Rock. A king bed was comfortable including fireplace for cold nights. Small bathroom. The interior a bit dated and in need of some tlc. Friendly... More

We stayed here last year, and again this year and ended up in the same room. Looks like the rooms are getting a bit worn, but still were comfortable and clean. Room price is better than most of the nearby motels. The location is excellent and you can easily walk down to the waterfront on the bay or into town.... More

Entering the room, we were pleasantly surprised. It was a good size, had a fireplace, and a comfortable king sized bed. Aside from patches of clean paint which didn't match with the rest of the room, there was a gross, rusted ceiling panel over the shower. The location was good because it is two blocks from many restaurants and shops.

Stayed in the Pacific Shores Inn for a night. For $100 we got given a huge room with king bed, fridge, microwave, super comfortable, very quiet. Location was great, close to the harbour. The manager was lovely, no fuss, very helpful. I can only recommend it.

Pacific shores needs some updating. The rooms are nice however could use refurbishing. Building is looking a bit tired too. Location is excellent with a great view of the bay and rock. Close to food and shopping
