We were pleasantly surprised with a nice, clean room albeit an older place that would do well with some updating. Our first two nights, we were on the top, the third floor, no elevators here. The third night we were placed in a room on the first floor. Nice, quiet end unit with a fireplace. Bed was much better in... More

I picked this hotel for the price, the location and the fireplace in the rooms. The location is excellent, just a couple of short blocks from the shops, restaurants and harbor. The room was clean and did not feel cramped. The mattress and pillows were very comfortable (too soft for my spouse). The only downside: the room on the ground... More

Good little hotel if the price is right. Clean room. Bedding comfortable. No pool or spa tub. There are lots of options in Morro Bay. This is a good choice if the price is right. Great location close to Embarcadero.

Nice place, not the Hilton. Having a fire place by your bed (Duraflame only - provided by the hotel) AMAZING. The King size bed was Very comfirtable. Bath towles were huge and soft. the place was old but clean. Looks like they are in the midst of a remodle. But its qute and quaint,. and walking distacne from EVERYHTING>

The large parking lot was great, as property here is at a premium, while the Wonderful view of the ROCK was great, especially from the elevated deck was great for watching the Sun sink into the Pacific behind it. The two queen beds in Room 103 (ground floor) were so comfortable and cozy, it was like sleeping on a cloud,... More

Stayed here one night on a biking trip. Was clean and warm at night. Rooms are average. Check-in clerk (owner) was Ok. Decent enough for a motel, although Thanksgiving meant prices were more than double at $123. Breakfast is coffee and muffin. A central location, so lots of good places for dinner and breakfast just a block or two away.

We used a coupon book to stay in this motel. Amazing room with a big, stone fireplace in one corner (no wood for it though!), an extremely comfortable king size bed; excellent WiFi; regular sized flat screen TV. 2 blocks from the waterfront businesses and restaurants. Cons: We were told breakfast was pastries and coffee which didn't open until 8am.... More

We have only stayed one night at this hotel, but have enjoyed our stay. The bedroom is really big and cozy. The bed is awesome. My only complaint was about breakfast. Frontdesk never told where that was or the time. I even looked for it in the morning, but frontdesk door was closed and we ended up leaving without it.

We spent a week in Morro Bay and divided our stay between two inns. The owners, Lilita and Kirit we excellent and very helpful. Our room had the most comfortable bed, ocean view, fireplace and continental breakfast. The room was very clean and close to shopping and all activities. We would certainly stay here again.

For the price, this Inn is a fine place to spend the night. It is very close to the ocean and we could even hear the seals barking in the distance. You could easily walk to many restaurants and enjoy the sunset and feel safe. The room was spacious and clean and our king sized bed was very comfortable and... More
